  • review rating 5  Captain Zack provided our family of four an unforgettable day! He was there waiting with his fantastic boat when we arrived and we were off within 5 minutes. He knew exactly where to find the fish and we had one in the boat almost immediately. He was outstanding with our boys (12 and 9) helping them fish, letting them help, teaching them about the fish we were catching and answering their questions along the way. It was a wonderful experience and he has our highest recommendation!!

    review rating 5  Captain Zach gave us an amazing and unforgettable experience. My husband really wanted to fish as he has a bit of experience. I have never fished before. My expectation was to enjoy being on a boat out on the water and not even attempt to fish. Zach quickly changed my mind. He knew so much about the fish we were looking for and where to go, with confidence that we would find them. I immediately opened up and had to try it. He made it seem so exciting, like we couldn’t fail. And we didn’t! I never fished before but I caught 4 fish on my first time! My husband and I had an absolute blast. My first experience fishing was so perfect that I may even consider fishing again. Thanks for everything Zach!

His boat is beautiful and he went out of is way to make the day so much fun! Definitely the highlight of our St. Pete vacation! Can’t wait to book our next trip! See you next spring, Captain!

    review rating 5  Fantastic morning of fishing. Would highly recommend White Pearl Fishing Charters to anyone in or visiting the St. Pete area. Captain Zack was extremely knowledgable and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better guide as he put us on fish immediately and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Sight fishing for tripletail on a calm day in the Gulf is an experience we won't forget. Can't wait to come back and book another trip with White Pearl Fishing Charters!

    review rating 5  Booked a trip with a friend while in St Pete last week and we had a great time. We're hoping to spend most of the time inshore but Zack read the inshore conditions (not so great) quickly and put us on the fish offshore. Enough so we were able to feed 4 adults that evening at a local restaurant he recommended to us that would cook our catch. Who knew Hogfish tasted so good? They for sure aren't very good looking! Zack was very knowledgeable and willing to teach as much as guide. Pleasure spending the day with him and looking forward to the next opportunity to repeat!

  • review rating 5  We booked a fishing trip with White Pearl at the end of January. The weather held out for us and it ended up being a beautiful day. We caught a variety of fish and were able to keep some for dinner. Capt Zack filleted them for us and even recommended a place we could get them cooked-delicious recommendation. We will definitely be making this a yearly tradition when we visit St Pete.

    review rating 5  My husband and I booked a charter with Capt Zach to surprise our boys. We booked a 4 hour trip being that we have two energetic boys, we were worried about their attention span. Capt Zach assured us he'd keep the boys busy catching fish and teaching them what all goes into a day of fishing. Needless to say we extended our trip two more hours because we all had such a great time. Not only did we catch more fish than we could count, we saw dolphins and other wildlife that Capt Zach was very knowledgeable on. Highly suggest booking with Capt Zach to have an all around amazing day!

  • review rating 5  My wife, granddaughter, and myself fished with Capt. Zack on the 15th of January. It was windy and cold on the water but Zack still put us on the fish. He was a pleasure to spend the day with. Very knowledgeable about the areas we were fishing and about the fish we were catching. He works well with kids and tries to teach them all he can about fishing. Zack wouldn't spend a lot of time in an area if we weren't catching fish, he kept moving until we found a spot they were biting. We caught quite a few fish and had a good mess to bring home. I highly recommend fishing with Capt. Zack and will fish with him again in the future.

    review rating 5  Our trip with Capt Zach for my husbands birthday was amazing! We enjoyed cruising around on the boat as much as the actual fishing. The boat is clean and has all the best gadgets on it. He had plenty of bait and put us on fish immediately. He cleaned and bagged all the fish we were allowed to keep and even recommended a local spot-Sea Critters- to have it cooked up so we could enjoy it as our hotel room didn’t have a kitchen. I highly recommend this charter and captain. My husband and I cannot wait to book with him next year.
