Split Trips
Your connection to small group charters in the Tampa Bay area

Do you have a small group and want to share a deep sea charter with other fishing clients? Pura Vida Charters has exactly what you need. All year we offer split charters to our customers at their request. Remember that when you split a charter you must provide a deposit to ensure that all members of the split charter make it to the dock. The deposit amount per person is $75. This will be applied to your balance due on your trip. All split charter rates do not have gratuity included. Gratuity will be added for your convenience at 15%.

3/4 Day 6-7 Hours, AM 5-20 Miles $150/pp
Full Day 8-9 Hours, AM 25-60 Miles $200/pp
