From Marco Island south into the Everglades National Park, the unique waters of Southwest Florida's bays, rivers and near shore habitat offer some of the best fishing in the world. You will travel through areas in a specially designed boat that can navigate these shallow waters and take you to remote areas seen by few and fished by even fewer.

My wife and I have gone out with Captain Dave for several years now and I can assure you, it can't get any better than a day (or half day) with Captain Dave. He is the BEST, period.
