Florida Excursions

From inshore trips for beginners to world-class offshore fishing, Florida Excursions provides it all. Explore Southwest Florida from a different perspective and take one of the many trips listed below.

Your guide for this adventure is Captain Mark, who’s been fishing these waters for years, be it as a tournament competitor, an instructor, or an angler looking for relaxation. By taking a trip with this captain, you get an advantage other people don’t - as Mark is a certified diver, he examines the underwater spots on a weekly basis. That way, he doesn’t guess where the fish are - he knows it!

You’ll be fishing on a 28’ Dusky boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. She’s powered by twin 225 HP Mercury engines that can reach a maximum speed of 35 knots. The boat also features navigational electronics, a private toilet, and a cooler. You’ll also find professional fishing equipment, such as rods, reels, spearfishing gear, and outriggers.

There’s a variety of fish species you can target, and most of it depends on what fishing grounds you visit. Some of the fish you can catch are Snook, Grouper, Redfish, Snapper, Cobia, Barracuda, Tripletail, and various types of Shark.

Your fishing equipment and licenses are covered, so you only need to bring some snacks and drinks.

Florida Excursions is at your service, whenever you feel the need to have a fun and exciting day on the water!
