“Simply amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Before I say anything else, this trip was pure perfection with capt. Shawn. We met at the dock where he was already waiting for us, after some safety instructions we were off.
On the way to the first fishing spot we saw many types of birds and animals, which captain Shawn told us all about plus he gave us a ton of history information on the area.
Once we were at a fishing spot he told us what to do and we were off catching fish.
Over the next few hours we caught close to a hundred fish, which captain Shawn informed us on the kind of fish and any info to go along with it.
Captain Shawn is a true professional, and one heck of a fisherman. If you wanna catch fish, learn a ton of things, and have a amazing time, book with paradise charters.... we had a day we will always remember........ thanks Captain Shawn.

“Great day of shark fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Captain Shawn provided a full day of non-stop action catching sharks off Fort Myers Beach for a group of six of our family members. They ranged in age from 17 to 27. They all had a day they'll always remember. Shawn put them on the sharks all day long. We will definitely be back for another charter with Shawn!

“One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

My son and I spent the morning with Capt. Shawn fishing the shores of Fort Myers beach. What a great day, I've been fishing for the last 50 years and will rate this as one of the best. We saw Manatee, Dolphins, and 3 different kinds of Rays.. We were on the fish inside 15 minutes and caught fish for the next 4 hours. Shawn not only shared his knowledge of the 5 fish species we caught, but also his favorite recipes for each. By the end of the trip we knew we had made a friend. Loved every minute of our trip, Book with Capt. Shawn and have a day to remember forever.

“Captain Shawn is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We fished with Captain Shawn in late April. We took our fifteen year old grandson, who was visiting for spring break, with us. So, it was Captain Shawn and the the three of us on his amazingly clean boat. What a great day! Captain Shawn's knowledge of the water and the fish in it was great as well as his knowledge of the area's history. His attention to customer service and safety was greatly appreciated. We caught lots of fish and totally enjoyed being out on the water. If you want to fish in Fort Meyers, call Captain Shawn at Paradise Charters.

“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

This was a perfect day of fishing celebrating my brothers birthday. Captain Shawn put us on a tremendous amount of great eating sheepshead. But we also caught another 4 or 5 species of fish. His knowledge of the area and his passion for his job made for a great trip. His boat was a whopping 14 days old as of 3/1, extremely comfortable and made to fish. Bottom line is if you want a perfect experience you go see Captain Shawn! See you next year, Captain!
