Captain Chris made the trip
Captain Chris was great. First mate Bailey was also great. Full of great conversation and very helpful. Our boat even caught a barracuda which was awesome, but pretty rare! Fishing can be slow but overall we thought it was worth it!

Captain Sam took great care of our family. He shared valuable information about the fish, waters, trees and wildlife.
He was helpful and patient with all of us and taught us how to fish.
An excellent experience. Can't wait to do this again.

Captain Sam rocks!
Apr 2021
Captain Sam took the 6 of us out for a beautiful half day fishing outing. We are 3 generations of a family with enthusiasm for great scenery, dolphins, and fishing made easy. Sam was wonderful, a naturalist, highly experienced boat captain, fun to be with, and gave us a terrific afternoon. He knows exactly where to go for the fish, had excellent fishing equipment, baited our lines, removed the fish, at the end of our outing, he cleaned the fish and sent us home with filets ready to cook.

Waste of our time!

They don't use any type of fish finding equipment, you are not allowed to keep your fish because of size regulations and the bait is tiny shrimp, not enough for your time and money !

Dear Janson, We are so sorry that you did not have a great time onboard our Calm Bay and Coastal Fishing Excursion. We always strive to make sure our guests have the best time and we apologize we did not meet your standards. On the calm bay coastal fishing excursion, we do use shrimp as these are the best bait for the backwater trips. The size of the shrimp are perfect because that is the size of the fish in that type of ecosystem. We are constricted by the size due to state and federal regulations, and unfortunately there is nothing that we can do about that. It seems as if you are looking to catch larger fish while onboard with us. We would really recommend looking at our deep sea fishing excursion, mainly our 6 or 8 hour ones. Onboard this excursion, this is where we are targeting larger species such as red grouper, gag grouper, and a variety of snapper. We hope to see you back again with us in the future so that we can show you the best time possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us over email at naples@purefl.com or call our main office at 239-263-4949.

We had 2 great excursions With Captain Henry and Captain Nick! The Eco tour was fantastic and Calm Nay fishing was a ton of fun. Our kids (7&9) caught a ton of fish and even a couple to have cleaned for dinner! Both guys are extremely knowledgeable about the area. We were blessed by their patience and attentiveness! We will visit again on our next trip down!!
