Charter Info


We try to make it very can call us at 239-394-0608 or email at "" and we will respond to the inquiry ASAP. We will work with you to get the date and time you want. We can accomodate either four adults or six if the the extra two are pre-teen children. We book on the honor system (no deposit required) and all we need is a name and a contact phone number to reach you while in SW Florida. We hope you make the trip but, if some unforeseen issue jumps in the way, you can cancel without penalty. If we have a weather issue that is dangerous (storms) we will cancel; if we have serious inclement weather, the call to cancel is yours. No penalty.


Sometimes in family outings, one or two members would like to fish and others would like to do nature things. .......but be together. We offer the perfect solution called combo trips. In the four hour half day we can allocate time to backwater fishing, shelling on a beautiful remote barrier island just north of Marco or just sightseeing nature i.e. dolphins, sea birds, pristine mangrove islands. Essentially, the trip is yours to call how much time you spend on each segment. These trips are very popular and often surprise family members as to how much fun a few hours of fishing can be. You can book this type of trip by mentioning when you contact us.


There are times, especially during the busy times that we are already booked but would like to accomodate you anyway....four years ago we set up a partnership with a first class charter operation based at the same marina. They are Sunshine Tours managed by Capt Rodger Parcelles and operate two 25' center consoles with experienced captains and do the same type of family trips, including combo trips, that we do. Our prices are different, but when we do a referral to Sunshine Tours, they will run your trip at a discounted price, which is very competitive here. So, if you call or email and we're booked we will put you in touch with our partners. Sunshine is first class operation and do an excellent job.

CALL US ANYTIME AT 239-394-0608
