Naples and Marco Island Fishing Charters
Venturing off-shore is a dream many of us have, but few get to experience. One of the most remarkable advantages to vacationing in Florida is the variety of water adventures you can enjoy. In Naples and nearby Marco Island, there’s no shortage of inshore and offshore fishing charters. Many locals gain angling expertise growing up, develop a passion for getting out onto the water, and become certified and licensed charter captains. So, whether you want to get your feet wet close to port or hook a king mackerel 30 miles from the coast, there’s a reliable and friendly charter captain just around the corner.
Naples offers a wide selection of charter boats and fishing tours, but we’ve narrowed it to some of the most memorable and recommended excursion companies. Before you head out, make sure to bring an ice chest to transport your catch, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, water, non-slip shoes, and dress in layers as it can be much cooler out at sea. Though permits for certain types of fish may be required, each of these outfitters can accommodate up to 4 to 6 people per trip, provide instruction, licenses, bait, and tackle, and will clean or fillet your catch for you!
Naples Saltwater Fishing offers fully guided half day, full day, and tailor-made trips where you can travel offshore, stay near shore, or explore backwaters. Fish for tarpon, redfish, mangrove snapper, kingfish, grouper, and many more in the peaceful waters near Naples or brave the rugged waters of the Gulf of Mexico for some big game.
Ms. B Haven Charters of Naples also provides inshore and offshore fishing, as well as shark fishing, eco-tours, and a sampler tour that includes intercoastal shelling, light tackle fishing, and wildlife and waterfront property viewing. All tours last 4, 6 or 8 hours. Your catch will depend on the type of tour you choose, but you will create memories with the help of one of their knowledgeable captains.
Day Star Charters gives an array charter tour options including offshore, inshore, backwater, an inshore-offshore combo, and 3 in 1 combination fishing tours. Comparable to our other selected charter providers, their tours cater to any type of group and provide a skilled captain. Trips range from 1.5 to 6 hours and have flexible tour options for non-fisherman, novices, and experienced anglers alike.
Just south of Naples, Marco Island has an astounding amount of opportunity to savor the waterfront and deep seas by charter boat. Likewise, the professional boat captains and available tour varieties will ensure a fun and safe time for everyone aboard.
Adventure Fishing is a full-service deep sea and near shore fishing charter that also offers sightseeing tours such as shelling, eco, and dolphin watching. They offer half-day (4 hours), 6 hours or full-day (8 hours) tours that cruise the waters surrounding Marco Island, Naples and Ten Thousand Islands. Break up the day with light fishing and a combination of activities like seashell hunting and wildlife watching or spend a full day on the ocean hunting large fish like grouper, snapper, and barracuda.
Florida Adventures and Rentals not only offers offshore and backwater fishing charters, but also ecotours via boat, jet ski, paddle board, and kayak. Their backwater charters provide access to Ten Thousand Islands and a variety of fish species without the travel time of an offshore trip. Offshore charters permit fishing near the reefs that harbor larger fish species like grouper, tarpon, and snook.
