We have gone out with Capt. Derrick several times. Each time we caught lots of different fish. It truly is an exciting experience to fish with him. He has a great deal of experience and knows where the fish are. The last time out we caught several nice sharks and an amazing Cobia that we still have some in the... More

Capt. Derrick chartered a GREAT 6-hr trip on 6-12-13 for myself and 2 sons-in-law who had never fished "inshore". We caught flounder, Spanish mackerel, trout, and redfish near Redfish Pass drifting with the am tide, N. Captiva Island mangroves, and various locales around Pine Island Sound. They were enough fish for 8 persons and 2 dinners which he filleted for... More

We decided to do a last minute fishing trip while staying in Sanibel and had a great experience. Was looking for a guide that could get us in the fish and also be patient with our kids (4 & 8yr old). Derrick was not only patient with the kids but was just a great relaxed host. Had us fishing within... More

We have visited Southwest FL many times and never knew this was avaliable. We went on a wildlife tour with Gulf Coast Marine Excursions and had the best time of our trip. Captain Derrick was great, we saw lots of wildlife, dolphins were everywhere. I would recommend them to anyone visiting the area.
