Come see how generations have lived off the sea. How crabbers fish, see oyster bars and learn how the water has its own rules and highways. Take a trip to Ft Myers Beach and get a up close look at working shrimp boats, or just bounce around from island to island for some cool island drinks and great local food. Give us a call for some great fishing, shelling, sunset cruises and much more.

We eagerly anticipated our trip with Captain Joe before even arriving on our vacation. He was so nice even via texts, and he made it clear that the excursion's agenda would be determined by what we wanted to do. Some of our family of 6...More

What a blast we had. Capt Joe showed us dolphins and manatee up close and took us to a secluded beach on North Captiva. We were treated to some secret fishing holes as well. Would recommend booking your Fishing trips with Barefoot and Capt Joe....More

Just came back from a great day with Captain Joe. So much fun! His stories, knowledge about the area, and carefree attitude ensured a great time. We fished, saw dolphins playing around the boat, toured the area, beachcombed, and laughed a lot. Thank you Captain!
