Took a 4 hour offshore fishing trip with Captain Dan from Sunshine Tours on Saturday, August 30th and had a fantastic experience.The boat was incredibly clean, roomy and comfortable for the 5 of us on the trip. Dan was very friendly and knowledgeable, and he had us on the fish almost immediately. The action was almost non-stop, and we had... More

We had a great time fishing with captain Danny! He was a super guy and made the trip a blast with his jokes! He did an awesome job helping us catch several fish and even avoided a bad storm that rolled in so we could stay on the water. The boat was very comfortable and he was very helpful baiting... More

We spent the afternoon fishing with Captain Danny! What an awesome adventure! This guy will go above and beyond to ensure you catch fish and make sure a great time is had by everyone! Best time I've had fishing and grateful for the experience!

We ventured further out that normal, considering it was a back water fishing trip. Very good value for money, and the fish you catch are washed and cut when you get back to the marina by the captain! We caught lots of fish, all different kinds. The equipment, ride and service was great. I would recommend Sunshine Tours! We went... More

This was our 3rd time fishing the backwaters with Captain Rick. He is all about business and definitely cares about getting fish. I was a bit timid however as it seems as if he expects everyone to be an expert. I'm not a novice and know my way around a fishing rod. We definitely kept busy with the fish we... More

We spent two hours on the Sunshine Tours Princess Sunset Cruise out of Rose Marina piloted by Capt Cedric and staffed by the most friendly, welcoming, and very professional mates, including the nicest bartender. What a fantastic experience aboard a really nice boat. Perfect for the occasion. Wonderful information regarding the Marco River ecology. Premium sunset as we gently puttered... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our four hour private Sunshine Fishing Tour with Captain Chaz! Chaz was fun and friendly, and taught us all - both the newbies and the experienced - new fishing and cleaning tips. Our friends were from Italy and on Marco for the first time, so he personalized the trip beautifully. He showed them a little bit of... More

Fished Sunshine Tours 4 years ago with Rick and Sedric and had a wonderful time. Went out again this year with just Captain Rick and was greatly disappointed, never had a warm fuzzy feeling that we were welcome on the boat. Caught very few fish all for reasons that were apparently "out of his control". Very bad attitude coming from... More

Ask for Captain Rick to be your fishing guide. Capt Rick was absolutely phenomenal with placing us right on the fish under extremely hard conditions and tides. We caught black drum, amberjack, mangrove snappers, sheephead, and stingrays. Everyone in the family caught fish. Thank you Captain Rick !

Did a recent back country fishing trip with sunshine. Booking, etc was easy and relatively inexpensive. We had Captain Rick and I don't know if he was cranky or he's usually salty, but we would have enjoyed the trip more if he was more pleasant. 3 hours of how good he is at fishing and how bad we were. Thank... More
