Overview

My name is Captain Shawn Kelly. I’ve been a Professional USCG registered Captain for more than 16 years. For the last 10+ years, I have dedicated my career to the waters of Pine Island Sound with a special focus on Sanibel and Captiva. I am proud to call the historic Jensen’s Twin Palms Marina home, however we can pick you up wherever you’d like from Captiva, Sanibel, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Pine Island or North Captiva. I’m an avid fisherman, a husband and a father who has experienced the great opportunity to teach my son, but also hundreds of other kids how to fish. We fish year-round from Ft. Myers Beach to the famed Boca Grand Pass and everything in between. With more than a decade on these waters, we know when and where to find fish. Our goal is to make your trip as memorable as can be for you, your family and your friends.

Drove from Tennessee for this trip and as usual, we weren’t disappointed! In our book, he is hands down the best on the west coast. Something nice about catching your own dinner. We are repeat customers with Captain Shawn and we’re already planning next year!

Capt Shawn had us hitting fish within the first few minutes that our lines hit the water. We had a great time catching snapper, trout, and shark - not to mention the coutless skipjacks and mackrell. We had a 14 and an 8 year old...More

The first time out with Shawn was good enough for me to search him out this year as well. He's as great guy, very personable, and his dedication to getting you fish is his sole mission. The trips are fun and productive. We've never gone...More

My wife and I told Captain Shawn that, since we've had little luck catching Tarpon on other charters, we'd just as soon fish for Snook, Redfish, or Trout rather than sit in the boat and wait for a long shot Tarpon. After catching a few...More

Ya gotta go out with this guy! Capt. Shawn is simply the best guide ever! He will not only make certain you have a great time; he'll also teach you enough that you can go out by yourself and catch fish. Highly recommended!
