Endless Summer Charters

Endless Summer Charters runs inshore and nearshore charters from one of the best fishing locations in SW Florida. Their captains are happy to take on anglers of all ages and experience levels, from families with kids to veteran fishermen. All native Floridians, they will show you their favorite places to fish.

You will be on a 25’ BlueWave bay boat that’s a perfect option for both navigating the flats as well as going nearshore for Kingfish or something else. Apart from all the necessary navigation and safety gear, it also has a t-top that gives needed shade during warm summer days. There’s plenty of space on board for four anglers to fish in comfort. Depending on the trip, the boat can carry up to six passengers.

There’s always something to be caught in this part of Florida. Some of the regulars are Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Jacks, while summertime is Tarpon time. Sharks can also be found for a large part of the year and are fun for the entire family. Going a few miles offshore is where you can find Kingfish, Barracuda, Gag and Red Grouper, and more.

All the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need come included in the price of a given trip. Once the trip is over, the captain will clean and fillet the catch for your convenience. Lunch stops can also be arranged if you’d like to have a bite to eat during the trips. You are also free to bring your snacks aboard if you prefer.

Captain Bill Hammond grew up here in SW Florida, fishing the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If he wasn’t born in SW Florida he would have made it here eventually. His wife, Angela (whose family has fished or guided here since the 1800's) coordinates the charter side of things and shares Bill's love for fishing. We also have Capt. Matt Johnson who is a native guide and Capt. Ethan Hansen who's family helped pioneer SW Florida. All our captains are top notch and each have their own style of getting their customers on some great fishing!
