SWFL has a world class Tarpon fishery, during tarpon season we see a large migration of fish traveling from up north, straight off the beaches of Sanibel and Captiva and down to the Florida keys.

SWFL Tarpon Fishing

The big choice on anglers’ bucket lists for Southwest Florida waters is a species of gamefish that’s notorious for delivering a great battle. These folks are in pursuit of the tarpon. Also called the “silver king,” tarpon can easily reach as heavy as 300 lbs and can reach over 8 foot in length, howbeit keep in mind that they are greatly protected and can’t be retained for harvest.

While the coastline area of SW Florida is full of charter fishing for hire, there are some critical factors that make us stand out from our competitors in Fort Myers Beach Florida. Our clients get a veteran, trusted and well-known Fort Myers and Sanibel Island Florida Tarpon Fishing Charter Business who is concerned about their wishes and who treats fishing charter clients as if they are close family.

 We are devoted to releasing healthy tarpon quickly because distressed tarpon are oftentimes the casualty of large sharks, particularly amid the spring and summer months.

Shelling Charters and Sightseeing Voyages

      Sanibel and her neighboring barrier cays are some of the most extreme shelling locations on the planet. Being a barrier island, Sanibel’s most uncommon characteristic is its east-west situation in the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel’s land mass sits vertical to the mainland coast as opposed to sitting parallel to shore like nearly every other barrier island. This distinctive situation ensnares shells which are pushed north by dominant gusts and tidal motion.

      Shells become easy to find as the surface of the water recedes when north winds rush across the island. The most popular shelling times are usually December, January and February, however, summer gales often reveal enormous numbers and assortments of shells, much to our delight.
