Skiff Fishing
Fish for a full or half day in an 18-foot Hell's Bay Skiff equipped to handle all possible fishing challenges in the area. The unparalleled maneuverability and shallow draft of this vessel allows our charters to access areas that are off limits to other watercraft. Safety is our main concern aboard the skiff, and we are equipped with the latest communications gear, from VHF radios to mobile satellite phones. Tackle, bait, and other equipment are also provided.

Guided Canoe Fishing
Fish the "no motor zones" in remote areas that are accessible by canoe only. These places receive light fishing pressure from other anglers so the fishing is typically excellent. Snook, redfish, tarpon, and sea trout are common in these waters. These trips are tailored to the experience, abilities, and requests of the client, so please call for pricing. Space is limited to one angler.

A fishing trip on a deep-vee 21-foot boat to a Gulf of Mexico shipwreck is unforgettable. Enormous Goliath grouper will test your strength and stamina. You can also expect to find lots of free-leaping tarpon, loggerhead turtles, and emerald green water. Permit, cobia, tripletail and mackerel are plentiful as well.

Night Fishing
Target nocturnal species like snook and tarpon with Hydroglow fish lights and other night-fishing technology. Recommended for experienced anglers.

Take a scenic ride through the Everglades and become familiar with this pristine wilderness. See skyscraping mangroves, buttonwoods, orchids, and other varieties of flora. Search for the American bald eagle, flamingo, osprey, porpoise, manatee, blue heron, American alligator and crocodile, and more. Dry storage available for camera equipment. Please call for pricing since tours vary according to season and destination.
