We took the 3 hour back water fishing. We typically fish fresh water (Walleye, Perch, Bass etc. ) but we were surprised by the variety of fish that we caught-like 10 different species. Captain Greg was very knowledgeable of the area and taught us how to fish down here. Very quickly we spotted dolphin, manatee, and sting rays-jumped right out... More

My son says 5 stars because he caught a black nose shark, it was pretty neat. Otherwise caught some smaller yellow tail snapper we could keep, caught some larger grouper but unfortunately none big enough to keep. Captain Dan was pleasant & patient for us beginners. Biggest benefit is they do shared charters & because of this allowed my son... More

We took a fishing charter with Captain Dan and he showed us a fabulous time. Very attentive and helpful. Made the trip very entertaining and did his very best to make our fishing experience the best possible. I would not hesitate to use his charter again!

My husband, son and Mother-in-law went on a morning fishing trip with Captain Greg. They had a wonderful time and caught plenty of fish that he then filleted and we ate at local restaurant (Sand Bar). This was my husband's 5th going a fishing trip with Sunshine Tours and we will be back!

The cruise was pleasant and easy cruising out the mouth of the Marco River into the Gulf of Mexico. Dinner was wonderful of Prime Rib and Chicken Marsala with salad and vegetables. The cruise was up... More

We went on this cruise as part of my birthday celebration and we weren't disappointed. Friendly crew, great entertainment, the food was quality. There was a singer providing easy listening entertainment - he was very good. We saw the most beautiful sun set, with the experience being enhanced by a family of dolphins who put on a show for us...

We had 9 people and went backwater fishing with Captain Greg on the pontoon boat. We had about 6 young kids with us. We had a blast. Caught all types of fish including a two small hammer head sharks. I would use this company again for sure. Captain Greg was great!
