Charter Info & Rates
We offer several types of charters here in Southwest Florida. Fishing charters can be arranged for up to 4 anglers for 4, 6, or 8 hours. Not a fisherman, how about a day on the beach or a visit to Cabbage Key for a cheeseburger in paradise. Either way, we can arrange for a "Better Day" on the water.
Fishing Charters: I specialize in offshore, deep sea fishing charters. We will fish for Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. My boat has a federal reef permit which allows me to fish the Gulf more than 9 miles offshore. On a 6 hour charter, we will fish up to 30 miles offshore in waters 65-90 feet deep. On an 8 hour charter, we will run 30-50 miles offshore and fish in waters 100-160 feet deep.The boat also has a fishing license for 4 anglers, which means you do not have to buy a license yourself. I provide top of the line Star Rods and Shimano TLD 30 2 speed Reels. I also provide all bait, tackle, ice, and water. I will also clean and bag your catch for you at the end of the day. You bring your own food, drinks, sun tan lotion, and a camera.
Barrier Island Beach Charters: Spend a day on the beaches of North Captiva or Cayo Costa swimming, shelling, or just soaking up the sun. Bring your own food and drinks or we can arrange for a picnic lunch. Better yet, we can take you to Cabbage Key or Barnacle Phil's for a world famous Cheeseburger in Paradise. This is a 4 hour charter for up to 6 people. On our way to the beaches, we will cruise up Pine Island sound where you will pass by the fish shacks that are on the National Historic Register.
