We spent the morning with Captain Shawn fishing in the gulf and had a great time. The Snook Bight Marina is located about midway on the island, behind the Publix grocery and very easy to find. It was a foggy day, but he got us out on time and navigated thru the fog with ease. He knew where to set... More

Captain Shawn was great and I'd highly recommend him to anyone. My wife and I had a blast on an 8-hour charter a few weeks ago. We took home a bunch of fish and probably released 2-3 times that amount. We caught 10+ difference species of fish and learned a lot over the course of the day. Can't wait to... More

Everything about the Paradise Charters experience is first-class. Dottie makes the booking of the trip easy and fun! Captain Shawn is the perfect guide for experienced and non-experienced anglers. He has a wealth of knowledge about Florida fishing and will be sure to put you on the fish. He has the perfect disposition for a fishing guide - he's positive,... More

another great trip with Captain Shawn. Even though a cold front went thru the night ebfore we were able to catch 10 different species of fish including a flounder for dinner. If you're looking for a guaranteed great fishing trip with a knowledgable Captain, give Paradise Charters a call.

We caught 10 species, enough in the the cooler for 2 meals for 4 people, great captain who took us to many proven "spots". Knowledgeable about tides, winds, slot sizes and a great sense of humor.
