About Native Guides Sanibel-Captiva Charter services
Come and explore the beauty of Southwest Florida on one of our Fishing / Eco-Charters through the Pine Island Sound and its surrounding areas with a local native at the helm. Owned and operated by Captain John Houston, a Sanibel native, we provide guests the opportunity to create everlasting memories while strolling the waters on the Gulf of Mexico and Old Florida. Captain John is a self-taught naturalist who is passionate about sharing his knowledge of the local ecosystem. He is a fourth-generation Floridian whose unique upbringing has provided him the platform to share his knowledge of the area’s rugged history and events the shaped our area into what it has become today. We offer a variety of charter services including private fishing trips, snorkeling adventures, eco-charters for sightseeing, birding, and shelling. Private lunch tours to waterfront restaurants in the surrounding areas and water-taxi services are also available. Open year-round!
