We had 4 people fishing and we kept over 20 fish mainly mangrove snapper. Captain Shawn cleaned all of our fish when we arrived back and we were able to enjoy them... More

Both are experienced fishermen from Wisconsin so catching sharks was such a neat and different experience. Captain Shawn was timely, friendly and informative. This was... More

My first time salt water fishing. Captain Shawn took us on two excursions last week. One day of sharking and backwater and the 2nd trip solely backwater. Captain Shawn is very personable and knowledgeable of his trade, species of birds and fish, facts about the surrounding coast and waters. It was an awesome experience and it was everything that I...

Before I say anything else, this trip was pure perfection with capt. Shawn. We met at the dock where he was already waiting for us, after some safety instructions we were off. On the way to the first fishing spot we saw many types of birds and animals, which captain Shawn told us all about plus he gave us a... More

Captain Shawn provided a full day of non-stop action catching sharks off Fort Myers Beach for a group of six of our family members. They ranged in age from 17 to 27. They all had a day they'll always remember. Shawn put them on the sharks all day long. We will definitely be back for another charter with Shawn!
