We booked a trip with Captain Shawn on July 13th. We have fished numerous times with various outfitters along the Florida coast and this was the best fishing charter, by far, that I have ever gone on. Shawn is very knowledgeable of the fishing grounds and is very entertaining! He was terrific with the boys (age 8 & 11) and... More

My family went out with Captain Shawn on July 5, 2015. We all had so much fun. We caught 12 different species of fish. Captain Shawn was so down to earth and very genuine and kind. It was one of our most favorite things we did on out trip.

Our family booked a 1/2 day charter and had an amazing time. Captain Shawn treated us like family and was very knowledgeable about the area. My girls, ages 17 and 15, had an absolute blast and want to visit again and do more fishing!

I don't even know where to start here. So, let me start by saying that Captain Shawn is literally the best on the water! His experience on the water and knowledge of the area is amazing. It is always such a fun time and I learn so much from Capt. Shawn! I don't know how he does it, but he... More

We booked a 4 hour charter with Capt. Shawn! He was awesome!! Very kind and professional! Knew so much about the area and fishing! We caught lots of fish! Capt. Shawn could tell us all about all 11 species we caught! Filleted up our catch and recommended an amazing restaurant to cook up our catch! Will definitely be back!!!

This review is long over due! I scheduled a trip with Paradise Charters for my husband's fortieth birthday last September. We had a wonderful day! We caught our limit of Red Snapper, we actually threw back quite a few, wanting bigger fish. We caught and released a few other types of fish, and a sting ray. We were able to... More

We went in March, and it was pretty cold. We didn't catch a lot, because of the weather, but we learned a lot about the history of Fort Myers, places to see. But we did catch fish! Captain Shawn is an expert on fishing and Fort Myers. An enjoyable morning.

Wife and I booked half day charter. Capt Shawn was very professional and personable. As we headed to the fishing grounds Capt Shawn explained points of interest and detoured to observe some Dolphins at our request. We had our limit of Mangrove Snapper within an hour and a half along with catching several other species. It seemed like we always... More

My wife and I booked the half-day afternoon charter. To begin with, since it was 'cash only', my wife and I expected to find a metal shed at some sort of dock where the boat would be. In fact, Paradise Charters is located in an upscale, high-end marina. We were worried about traffic into Fort Myers so we were over... More
