Naples Marina And Excursions is operated by an avid tournament angler and spearo, Captain Mark Garcy. He and his team are one of the only dive/fishing companies around that have been successfully putting people on fish for almost two decades. As Capt. Mark likes to say, “There is no guesswork here!”

Join him for an exciting day out on the water and fill your cooler with some incredible catches. The captain will work had to leave you and your party with fantastic memories and “big fish stories.” If fishing is your passion, all you have to do is book a trip and bring your desire to have fun. Your experience doesn’t matter – Capt. Mark caters to beginners and seasoned anglers alike.

Enjoy a day of backwater fishing on a smooth brackish estuary off the Gulf of Mexico on a 28’ Dusky boat. It is a clean, seaworthy fishing machine with two 225 HP Mercury engines and enough room for 4-6 anglers. Trips are better suited for parties of up to 4 anglers but Capt. Mark can accommodate up to 6.

The boat is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day on the water. You will be able to use top-notch rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures. Water will also be available on board.

Depending on the season and what’s biting, you will be targeting Redfish, Snook, Trout, Tarpon, Jacks, and many other species. Once you’re done catching, your fish will be cleaned for you.

    Are you a party of just 1 or 2 people and need help sharing the cost of a trip then look no further. This option gives you a chance to still have the ability to have the quality of a private trip rather than settling on a party boat with 30 or more people. On this trip we fish local wrecks, live bottom reefs and artificial reefs. If you are looking for an opportunity to catch a big one then come aboard and fish with the best.
