Our family had the pleasure of taking the 90 minute sunset cruise while vacationing in Punta Gorda. The captain and his first mate were very pleasant. The boat wasn't crowded and we were able to enjoy the top deck all alone. The captain gave commentary on the housing we passed and we had a pleasant conversation with the first mate.... More

My hubby and I took the Tuesday boat departure from Fisherman's Village this week and had an enjoyable time. The captain and crew were absolutely wonderful...very helpful and kind and professional. The boat was slow, no alcohol was served, and the ride was 3 hours each way. We would still do it again. The boat was in good shape and... More

A slow boat to Cayo costa. A relatively nice beach, certainly not Caribbean type beach, but a lot nicer than the root beer colored water in Charlotte Harbor. Hoped to see manatees, but didn't. Staff of King Fisher Fleet were excellent! Very friendly and captain was happy to point out things along the way. Enjoyable trip.

We took the Cabbage Key day trip, which was combined with the beach excursion. On the way out, we heard some interesting commentary on the history of the area but there was not a dolphin to be seen. The boat wasn't crowded so we were able to spread out and relax, but it did seem to take a long time... More

My family and some friends took the "Cabbage Key Island Cruise". We had a wonderful time. The captain and mates on the boat were great, and very knowledgeable about the boat and the bay and waterways. The boat is large and seating (at least in the off season) was plentiful. We had lunch on Cabbage Key where Jimmy Buffet supposedly... More

I had a great time on the Cabbage Key Cruise! We did see dolphins on our way back in. I would highly recommend King Fisher Fleet!

My wife and I visited the King Fisher Fleet on a Tuesday evening a couple of weeks ago. It was our last night in Punta Gorda and we had the evening free. We found the informational kiosk a couple of days prior while checking out Fishermans Village and the marina. It was a very cloudy evening and odds were good... More

I have lived in this area off and on for over 15 years. I have never taken a cruse on this boat because I thought it was for "tourists". Boy was I wrong. The boat went to CayoCosta, it was a great trip complete with info about the harbor and Dolphin sightings. For the price it is a great was... More

We had a blast! Captain Sam is the man...He made this the most productive fishing charter we've ever experienced. Half day trip was just the right amount of time. We can't wait to go again!
