Hemingway Fishing Adventures invites you to explore the beautiful waters out of Naples, Florida. Captain Vince offers half and full-day trips for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Families with children are especially welcome to join in the adventure!

Enjoy your trip aboard a 24’ Seachaser center console. Explore the choppier seas or float in shallow waters. Whether you want to venture further out up to nine miles offshore to catch King Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper or chase Redfish and Snook in the backcountry, the boat will provide a flexible platform for your trip.

There are a lot of professional tools and accessories, as well as modern navigational and fish finding electronics to save your time while searching for fish.

Even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hand before or just want to sit back and relax, inshore fishing might be right up your street. Your captain will guide you through the basics before you make your first cast. Enjoy a relaxing and rewarding fishing trip in the backwaters and get your hands on Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Sheepshead.

Or check the bite in the State waters, fishing for Snapper, Spanish and King Mackerel, Grouper, Tripletail, Barracuda, or even Cobia. Target whatever patrol the reefs and wrecks. The opportunities abound!

Hemingway Fishing Adventures will provide you with everything you need to make a great catch possible. The trips are all-inclusive, you only need to bring your own food, drinks, and the desire to have fun.

Living near the water in the Canal Zone, we learned how to enjoy everything about the sea. Our uncle showed us how to snorkel, scuba dive, spearfish, and even how to find treasure and old relics underwater. I have lived in Naples, Florida for 28 years, and have been fishing professionally for over 10 years. I became a captain as an excuse to go fishing all the time. I am very passionate about the sea and sea life, and still enjoy it immensely.
