Pure Florida

Pure Florida is one of the biggest fishing charter providers in and around Naples. There’s a lot to take in as you explore the gulf via jet ski, cruise boat, or jetboat. The most popular trip by Pure Florida is likely the deep sea fishing expeditions. 

The crew facilitates some exceptional fishing adventures for deep-sea enthusiasts. The team will mainly go for Grouper and Snapper due to their seasonality and practicality, but the specifics may vary depending on the time of the year. The charter trips will carry you to the deepest parts of the Gulf of Mexico, starting from the Gordon River and heading through Naples Bay. Overall, you can expect to get out about 60 miles for a private charter and 20 for a group/public charter.

The company also has an eclectic assortment of fun options, giving all water enthusiasts access to their favorite flavor of boating experience.

Ms. B Haven Fishing and Eco Charters

You will have a lovely and welcoming time hanging out with the crew of Ms. B Haven Fishing and Eco Charters. The team includes Captain Mike Bailey and Captains Stephen and Robert as they bring you an eco-focused trip through Naples and the Ten Thousand Islands. Trips often end with a few Tarpon, King Fish, Grouper, Jacks, and Snapper in a big blue cooler. 

The team is also unique in that they offer specialized shark tours. The most common shark species in the gulf are nurse sharks, hammerheads, and bull sharks. The bull sharks in particular often put up a seismic fight.

Sharks are notoriously hard to predict. While some may aggressively fight back, others may zoom through the water and pull out the line of your rod for hundreds of feet. The professional guides at Ms. B will have a blast taking you through the layers of challenge in a good gulf shark fight. 

Ms. B Haven can be found at 550 Port O Call Way. You can contact the crew at (239) 825-4292 for additional details.

Reel Funds focuses primarily on offshore fishing. Prepare to see some cool nooks along the beaches of Naples as you search for Grouper and Snapper on expeditions led by Captain Joe Walburn. 

Capt. Marvel Charters

You can likely find Capt. Marvel docked up at the Pelican Bend Marina, 219 Capri Blvd, most evenings during the week. If you arrive at the right time, you may even see the crew pull up Grouper, Amberjack, King Mackeral, and other tasty fish for some lucky guests. Trips feature access to a large dinette area, a shaded fishing cockpit, and 43’ of power. Capt. Marvel has been a community staple for 35 years running.

If you are looking to get up close with nature without picking up a rod and reel, be sure to visit the Everglades National Park near Lely Resort.
