About Five O’clock Charlie Boat Tours and Charters

Forget the stresses of life and go back in time

Transit across Tampa Bay where Hernando Desoto’s expedition traveled back in 1540.  Learn about sea birds, marine life, marine mammals and the mangrove habitat.  Snorkel a Tampa Bay treasure off Egmont Key and see reef fishes in their natural habitat.   Feel the excitement of some fast action fishing and catch enough to eat for dinner.  This is what we Floridians do in our time off.  Some of us do it for a living.
