I stayed in Ft. Myers Beach for 8 days on vacation, and the fishing was the most fun I had--and I almost never fish. This was, in fact, my first saltwater fishing experience. We did a hybrid trip of grass flats (sea trout, Spanish mackerel, etc.) and shark fishing. All 3 of us on the trip hooked a shark! Cpt. Shawn was very engaging and gave us a great time.

Went fishing with Captain Shawn and had a blast. He knows where to go to get the fish and he makes the trip worth your while.

We had a wonderful day with Captain Shawn of Paradise Charters. We went for a half day charter and caught tons of fish including Pompano, Sea Trout, Spanish Mackerel, and Ladyfish...Captain Shawn is very friendly and really knows what he is doing. Thanks for the great fishing trip!!

I've been out with my friends several times with Captain Shawn in the last year. In every case, we've caught a lot of nice fish including a bonnet head shark, pompano, flounder, trout & spanish mackerel.
Shawn is very easy to talk to and does everything he can to make your day enjoyable.
(Going on the charter is also a great way to see the Ft Myers Beach/Sanibel area from a different perspective).

I would HIGHLY recommend this charter service to anyone, including people who've never fished before. Capt Shawn will take the time to teach you what to do in a polite, professional way.
