Inshore fly or light tackle Charter in Everglades National Park
Jump in one of our boats and take a trip back in time. The Everglades is a magical place to spend a day (or week) on the water in search of snook, redfish, and tarpon.
The Everglades is a vast area of South Florida where the freshwater that flows down the state meets the saltwater of the Gulf of Mexico. Tidal mangrove estuaries comprise a large portion of this area and are home to many different critters. On any given day, you might see alligators, crocodiles, manatees, dolphins, white tailed deer, black bears, wild boar, and even flamingos.
We primarily target three species of fish on our charters; snook, redfish, and tarpon, but many other species might be encountered on a typical charter. You never know when you might catch tripletail, black drum, goliath grouper, mackerel, cobia, permit, false albacore, pompano, or sea trout while fishing the Everglades.
There are many different ways to fish the Everglades. We prefer to fish shallow water with either fly rods of conventional tackle while poling a skiff and looking for fish to present a fly or lure to. When sight fishing is not an option due to conditions, fish can be caught blind casting in likely areas.
The weather in South Florida can dictate the quality of the fishing. Ideally, the warmer, calmer, and more stable the weather is, the better the fishing will be. We basically have two seasons in Southwest Florida - Summer (hotter and wetter months) and Winter (cooler and drier months).
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.

I’m a second generation guide born and raised in Naples Florida. I grew up around tarpon fishing and developed a love of being on the water from a very early age. Having the Everglades in our backyard makes every day an adventure, and keeps my passion burning to explore new places. It’s truly one of the wildest places in the U.S.
