Went backwater fishing and were lucky enough to catch enough for dinner for 4. Captain Greg was fantastic and the fish were biting but as with any fishing it could be hit or miss. Had 4 of us fishing so had lots of room if there were 8 of us as can go it would have been crowded, call and... More

We booked a backwater fishing trip with this company because they said they could get my wheelchair bound child on the water to fish. That part went pretty well and we were excited. Our guide was a nice guy and I think he really tried but we caught almost no fish. I just chalked it up to luck and we... More

This was the third consecutive year we have enjoyed shared fishing tours with Sunshine. Over a two week period we did 3 offshore tours with Captain Dan and 2 backwater tours with Captain Rick. The weather turned cold early in our visit, which put a damper on some of the fishing. But, except for 1 backwater morning, we always ended... More

I'm a solo fisherman so I can do a party charter with sunshine. they fit me in with 5 others & get a 4 hour trip together. the boat ride isn't very long here so more fishing time. its a little more costly than a head boat but fewer people equals more cost but fewer problems. both times I have...

Great expierience with a great fishing guide. Capitan Scott was very friendly and worked really well with my 7 year old. For a cold wet November day soon after red tide, Capitan Scott was able to put us on fish. I have fished all my life and I understand that you are at the mercy of the fish, weather, moon... More

We go to Marco every year, and now part of our must do list is back water fishing with Capt. Trent of Sunshine Tours. We have fished in many spots in the US and Capt Trent is without a doubt our favorite guide. We never fail to catch an incredible variety of species, and Trent is always fluent on the... More

We really enjoyed our fishing trip with capt. Rick. Although we didn't catch any keepers capt. Rick tried really hard to find some fish that we could keep. If we had started catching cat fish, which are junk and poisonous, he would move the boat to get better fish. He also showed a lot of patience with some on the... More

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
