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

My son and I did a half-day fishing trip with Capt. Chris yesterday and had a blast. He clearly knows his stuff -- where to go, what to use for bait, how to handle people of all ages and experience levels. As a whole, I found everyone I dealt with at Sunshine Tours to be very friendly, helpful and focused... More

The first 2 days we caught a bunch of snapper and grouper, enough to feed a restaurant!!! The 3rd day with Capt. Dan was the ULTIMATE day!! After the whole boat caught our fill of smaller fish, Dan said... More

We were with Captain Rick on a pontoon boat. It was a fishing tour and Sunshine tours provides all equipment and bait. There were two small children on board which made the trip a little less enjoyable but the Captain was patient with them, even when one of them dropped the reel overboard. Luckily they were able to retrieve it,... More

I must say that this place does not disappoint. Although we had some tough waves on our offshore trip and a slack tide on the backwater, we still came home with a cooler full of fish! Way to go Captain Chris and Captain Rick!

Excellent food, especially for a boat. Cream puffs were amazing. Friendly staff. Gave a beautiful view of the sunset. Everything was outstanding!
