Bright colors and self-defense precepts rarely go together, but there’s purpose behind such a coupling in Elite Tactical Training’s paintball sessions. Participants use high-tech paintball guns loaded with multi-hued paint pellets to learn how to fight their way out of real-world defense scenarios with the help of role players. The educational paintball battles complement the company’s other offerings, such as marksmanship lessons and concealed carry courses.

Fish Galore's team of captains lead angling expeditions along Florida’s Gulf Coast, taking parties to fishing destinations such as Tarpon Springs and 10,000 Islands. Trips range from guided inshore and near-shore journeys to excursions that head between 30 and 40 miles offshore. With experience hauling catches including grouper, sailfish, and shark, the team has garnered praise from clients for keeping groups “always on fish” and seeing that everyone onboard feels “welcome and comfortable.” The team also furnishes equipment for independent fishing, renting out canoes and tackle so anglers can explore the area’s backwaters, canals, and the Intracoastal Waterway for redfish and trout. Alternatively, canoes give paddlers access to Midnight Pass Beach and Oscar Scherer State Park. Family-friendly eco tours are also available, with ample viewing of shore birds, shelling, and riding dolphins like rodeo broncos.

Looking out at the quiet, moonlit waters of the Gulf of Mexico, it?s impossible to know what?s on the line, other than that it?s big. Word has spread around the deep-sea-fishing boat, and now a crowd has gathered on either side of you. You pull the fishing pole back and guide whatever is snagged on the other end of the line nearer and nearer. The splashes gradually become louder. A few fellow fishermen help pull the creature onto the boat, and proudly hold the fish up for the crowd. There are countless deep-sea-fishing tales like this one to be told at Hubbard?s Marina. During its many day or night fishing trips, its crew and guest fishermen board the US Coast Guard?certified vessels for excursions into the Gulf to reel in fish of all sizes. Not only does Hubbard's Marina offer fishing trips, but they also allow opportunities for people to visit and observe Florida wildlife in their natural habitat. Animals such as dolphins, pelicans,manatees, and bald eagles can bee seen from the boat. After cruises, visitors can go shopping along the picturesque boardwalk and enjoy the local culture and history in the quaint fishing village. They also captain sunset cruises, dolphin-watching cruises, kayak tours, rent kayaks and paddle boards, and even take to the streets during segway tours.

In 1962, Charles Redington commissioned a 1,200-foot-long fishing pier to be built in the Gulf, one of eight others like it in the area. Today, this long wooden walkway represents the last of its brethren, preserved and restored by the current owners, the Antonious family, who treasure its historic significance and excellent fishing. The waters surrounding the pier teem with sea life, such as flounder, eels, sharks, dolphins, and kingfish who burble "checkmate" when they get hooked. The crystalline Gulf waters provide a view of the vibrant reefs below, best seen and fished from the very end of the pier, which is reserved for those who purchase VIP passes. Since The Long Pier requires no fishing license, both amateur and professional fisherfolk can enjoy its sunny lengths and salty breezes by simply renting a rod and buying bait from the onsite tackle shop.
