“Great fishing in the 10,000 islands”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

We booked two consecutive days on a shared charter. The first day was with Josh and the second day was with Luke. Lots of fish were caught by all. We caught sea trout, silver trout, whiting, Jack crevelle, lady fish, lizard fish, flounder, porgie, mangrove snapper, and a ton of cat fish. We couldn't keep everything but we had enough fish to have lunch each day of the charter.
Both guides were knowledgeable and weren't shy about moving the boat to a different area when the current one wasn't producing.
The sights in the 10,000 islands are great too. There are lots of birds, we saw a few dolphins, and heard what we thought was a racoon fight on a neighboring island.
We're doing this next year and will use Stop's.

“STOP looking - these guys are great!”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

We have been fishing with the stops on our yearly (biyearly) fishing trip for about 18 year! It is one of our favorite family memories. Everyone is sure to catch fish, we caught a few small sharks the last time. The boat itself isnt much to brag about but there is room to walk around and coolers to put snacks/drinks in. John Stop does a great job accommodating the trip to the people on board. We got excited to see the dolphins so he turned around and showed us the dolphins. FUN TIME had by all!

“Great fishing and eco experience near Marco Island”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

Our family had great fun while fishing with Stop's Marine out of Goodland, FL. Old salt Capt John put us on fish right away. The action was lively and a great learning experience. We caught 8 species of fish and had dolphin following in our wake between spots. Overall an eye-opener with so many birds and wildlife to see while enjoying our favorite sport.

“Lived a beautiful Ten thousand Island experience from the water”
Reviewed December 2, 2010

We took the 3 hour eco-tour and loved it. We saw many dolphins, some really close. We unfortunately didn’t see any manatee, but we got a real feel of the Ten Thousand Islands, as the boat took us around several of them. Capt. John Stop took us to a sandy island, where we had great shelling (many, beautiful shells) and had our picnic on the sunny beach (no shade). We were there for Thanksgiving and Captain John said it’s his favored time of the year.
This place is 20-25 min away from Naples (beautiful sunsets) and right near the Ten Thousand Islands' side of the Everglades National Park.
