About Mangroveman Charters
The Sunset trip departs in the afternoon in the wintertime. Sunset departure times differ throughout the year. The sunset trip is about 2.5 hours long. It can be customized as a fishing trip or as a narrated sightseeing/eco trip with a focus on the sunset and the wildlife like dolphins and the huge variety of birds like ospreys, bald eagles, roseate spoonbills, and many other wading birds. Daytime eco trips are about 3 hours long and Fishing Charters are approximately 3, 4, or 6 hours long. All the trips include an optional stop at the secluded beaches of Keewaydin Island where we can step off the boat and go for a swim or take a stroll on the beach and collect seashells. In any case, we customize the trips to the interest of our passengers. All our boat trips are private. Dogs are also welcome but please let management know that you are bringing your dog so the captain is then aware.

The private beach was beautiful and Paul was a fantastic tour guide. We had a great time. It is well worth the money to take this trip, we learned a lot about the wildlife that surrounds Naples and a lot about the history of Naples

We went out on 1/31/2022 with our children (12/11/7). We were met at the dock right on time. The boat was very clean and clearly well taken care of. The weather was less then ideal fishing conditions. Our Captain Paul still had us on fish amazingly quickly. Had a lot of cool stuff he explained on the ride to and from our fishing holes. The biggest thing for me was the way he interacted with our children. He was endlessly patient even with our "do everything myself" 7 year old. The kids were allowed to cast or bait theirp hook as little or as much as they wanted. Our middle child asked us when we got back to our vehicle to buy him no toys or presents for the next year to save money to come back. I have done several charters over the years. This was one of my favorite Captains. I will recommend him any day, double so if you have kids with.

Captain Paul is an outstanding guide and our afternoon of fishing was perfect on his boat. He is extremely knowledgeable and interesting and our small group enjoyed his easygoing manner and hospitality. Learned a lot, caught some nice fish (and good variety) and enjoyed the afternoon so much. Great value. Thanks Captain Paul!

Captain Paul met us promptly at the dock and showed us to his boat. It was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of room as we were just husband and wife on a romantic private tour. We were offered a myriad of snacks and non alcoholic drinks from a stacked cooler box. I had said that I would love to see a dolphin and Paul was hopeful that we would. Whilst cruising by some of the large houses on the water we spotted two dolphin and Paul set off to see them close up. We cruised down a waterway between Keewaydin Island and the Gulf of Mexico passing through some of the empty narrow channels. All the time Paul had some point of interest or bird.ife to tell us about. He then docked up on this side of the Island and we walked through a very short tail and emerged on the deserted island where we free to swim, shell, picnic, walk or see the sunset. We spent a nice time there but preferred to cruise back up the channel to see the sunset at the entrance to the sea. Along the way we spotted some dolphins Paul immediately set about making a wake for them to play in and we saw the most magical dolphin show all the way home. Fabulous. Then we joined all the other boats watching a superb sunset and still Paul took us for a small tour of some of the mansions before we went back to the dock. I would highly recommend Paul, his boat and his tour knowledge.

That was an amazing boat trip. Captain Paul is very knowledgeable of an area and nature. You will find out many interesting facts about local wildlife, as well as actually observe many sea creatures. Overall, very nice and exciting experience.
