Let's build YOUR perfect day on the water! The captain has been boating the SW Florida area waters for the last 20 years, and knows where all the hidden gems are. From recreational fishing, to sandbars, to private (Boat access only) islands/beaches and some of the best waterfront dining and sunset cruises, you will only experience the best the area has to offer. We can meet up with other boats on the sandbars for party time, or find a secluded private beach with total peace and quiet or anything in between. Or just do it all, the choice is yours. Feel like getting close to dolphins ... no problem, when you know where to look, and how to make the most of the experience. (We consistently have them coming right up to the boat and jumping - see photos). What makes us different ?? The customized VIP experience we provide on each and every charter to ensure you have a unique boating experience! We provide and set up for you if you choose the beach experience .....Beach chairs, beach umbrellas, a small table, a blender for frozen drinks, a bluetooth Premium Sound Bar to take on a pristine beach or sandbar, as well as floaties, coozies, football, and a Frisbee. If weather permitting (No strong winds) we will take 4K quality drone pics of you and your group to remember your AWESOME day on the water. The VIP experience is what you and your group will remember for years to come, and what really counts! The boat has a cabin to escape to when needed if the weather changes and plenty of dry storage for your items that need to stay dry, and USB phone chargers as well (Apple and Android charge cables supplied). Twin engines power this deep V boat to provide a comfortable dry ride as well as to ensure safety, reliability and peace of mind. The large built in cooler will be filled with ice and bottled water for the day, and you are welcome to bring your favorite beverages (Alcohol allowed - 21 and over) and food. The boat is equipped with a GPS and the latest fishfinder technology as well as a "Premium" Bluetooth audio system. There is also a freshwater shower at the back of the boat (not enclosed) to rinse off the salt water at the end of your adventure. You can also change clothes in the cabin, as it is private with the door closed. So what are you waiting for ??? Let's plan YOUR day to remember! New in 2022! There is now a 120 volt BLENDER in the cabin for making frozen drinks. (You bring the ingredients, we have the ice) Nothing like a nice frozen margarita or rumrunner as you cruise the waterways. Also, we just updated to a PREMIUM sound system with bluetooth, so you can play YOUR music with concert hall sound and clarity! The flooring (Decks in marine terms) have also been upgraded to soft EVA Teak which features no-slip for safety, and cushion for comfort. (Makes a big difference) This is a personal vessel that is pampered and very well maintained, as opposed to a working commercial boat. You will see/feel the difference. If you want to learn more about this boats attributes, Google search " Robalo R245 Review". It is Yacht quality, maintained to perfection, and rides smooth and dry in any conditions encountered. For those that are concerned, the captain is fully Covid vaccinated. No masks required. (Totally your option) Fuel (Gasoline) is not included in the quoted rate and is charged ONLY for what you use at the end of the charter. (Currently at $4 per gallon) This keeps the pricing fair for everyone and allows you to pick the destination(s) on your wants/needs. Each and every charter is different and unique. Please send me as many details as possible to provide you with an accurate quote. We take into consideration the # of guests and their specific expectations. We do 1/2 days as well.

We had the most amazing experience sailing with Fred yesterday celebrating my sister’s birthday. The boat was great and so were Fred and his daughter who was helping him during the day. They set up a picnic table, umbrella, and the chairs on a secluded beach for us and we had the most wonderful several hours of swimming, eating and enjoying the special day. As Fred promised, we found a few dolphins on the way back home which made the day even more special. I will definitely reach out to Fred again when we are in town next and will highly recommend him to family and friends.
Fred was a GREAT caption! Did a little sightseeing, spent the day at gaspirlla island which was secluded and BEAUTIFUL! The bluest water I have ever seen in Florida. We then headed back and saw 7 dolphins jumping behind the boat, it was amazing. We will definitely be booking again in the future!
Far beyond my expectations, private, all my wishes were met and then some, knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. Beautiful trip, you see another side of Florida you can’t see from land. Dolphins, manatees and birds everywhere. Not one negative, perfect trip.
We had an awesome experience with Fred and his son, Kyle. They made sure we had everything we needed and recommended the perfect trip for us. We had our kids age 7 & 4 along, and they had a great time on the water. The winds were strong, but this boat handled it flawlessly. We are beyond pleased we chose the expertise and excellence of this first class charter!
We had a great experience. Glad you were part of the experience as your tour and knowledge of the area was beautiful and interesting. I highly recommend Fred. We took a scenic cruise of the area and were very impressed with the equipment, area and especially Fred.
My love for the water goes back to my active duty in the US Navy. I had the privilege of being behind the helm and controls of a 500' US Navy 30,000 HP turbine powered vessel. From there it has been all fun on the water. I have ventured into the Bahamas by private boat from Miami, and all over the Florida keys as well. (Survived the Bermuda Triangle MANY times.) I enjoy fishing, scuba diving, cruising, and just hanging out at the sandbars meeting new people. My Spanish is limited, but gets better with a little practice (Tequila-lol). Looking forward to making your day on the water, the best it can be!
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
Full refund up to 5 days prior.
ALL quoted rates are "Plus Fuel Used" which is currently $4.00 per gallon cash or $5.00 when paying by credit card. The boat is equipped with an accurate Yamaha factory fuel flow gauge. You pay only for what you use. If you want to stay local the charge will be very low .....only a few gallons to the nearest sandbars or dolphin encounter areas. Let me help you build the perfect trip and route based on your budget and expectations. Each and every charter is different and unique.
