Capt. Ray Culver Guide Service

1150 Hamilton Lane
Chokoloskee FL, United States

Professional fishing fishing charter services in the Everglades, Naples, Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands, where I specialize in inshore flats fishing, which includes helping people achieve their goals in catching trophy Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout and many more specific species.

During certain times of the year, we are also able to go offshore for Gag Grouper, Cobia, Barracuda, Permit, Spanish Mackerel and Goliath Grouper.

Every charter is a unique experience, from fishing the backcountry in the mangroves to the crystal clear wrecks. I will take you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime, not just another boat ride!

I'm a third generation charter captain out of Chokoloskee, FL. I have over forty years of experience on the water. I charter out of a 22ft tournament edition pathfinder and provide top of the line gear for my customers. The species that we target range from fishing the back country mangroves for snook, redfish, trout and tarpon to going offshore and targeting tripletail, permit and cobia. I've been featured in shows such as The Sportsman Adventure with Rick Murphy and have also fished on The Professional Redfish Circuit on both the FLW and IFA.

My wife and I fished with Capt. Ray on 01/17/2017. We caught 15 seatrout. It was a good experience. Capt. Ray is a very good fishing guide. He has fished all his life. We plan to go with him again in April.

Hey guys and gals, this was a top knotch trip. I usely don’t rate guides that I haven’t been out with, but Capt. Ray is an exception! Let’s say exceptional guide. Unlike other guides he treated me with much respect. Unlike others I have been with that think just because you hired a guide your a dummy or just ignorant as crap. Not Catp. Ray, we had a blast felt as if I knew him for years. I ask to catch a snook on top water. Well the proof is in the pic.!!! Looking forward to next trip.
