Finding a fishing charter in Naples is easy, they are a dime a dozen. We are not just another fishing charter. We pride ourselves in offering the full customer service experience, so at the end of the day, whether you are a novice or seasoned angler, an eco tourist looking to commune with nature, or a family just looking for a pleasant day on the water, you can be assured that you will leave the dock satisfied knowing that you chose the right charter company for your Naples fishing excursion.

The best fishing trip I’v ever been on, starting with a big tarpon that I didn’t land, but making up for it was a monster 40” Snook. I will definitely be going out on the water with Captain Geoff again.

Capt. Geoff and Eric provided a top-notch trip...with a boat load of fish. We went to lightly pressured inshore areas that provided non-stop action. Geoff's personality was wonderful and it was endless laughter on the entire trip. More importantly, Geoff and Eric found a way...More

I’ve lived in Naples for a couple years now fishing the backwaters on my own. The reason I wanted to do a solo trip with a local guide was because I knew they’d get me straight on those fish. I wasn’t disappointed, with many firsts...More
