Nauti Diver Charters

With over 25 years of fishing the inshore and offshore waters of Daytona Beach, Captain Mark Gibson is ready to take you and your family or friends on a trip of a lifetime. Regardless of your angling skills, he will work hard to show you and your entire party how great fishing is.

Capt. Mark has a 22’ Mako, which can accommodate up to 4 guests. She has all the electronics necessary to locate the fish and Penn fishing gear you’ll need to reel that fish in. The boat is also equipped with a 20-gallon freshwater shower, a 20-gallon live bait tank, 200 HP Suzuki engine, and 2 ice boxes (one for the catch, the second one for your snacks and drinks).

Depending on your fishing spot and the season, you could be targeting Barracuda, Red Snapper, Snook, Redfish, Kingfish, Bonito, Flounder, and many more. The captain will make sure live bait is ready before the trip starts. After you get back to the marina, he’ll clean and fillet your catch. You will get two fish per person cleaned for free, after that there’s an additional charge for the service.

Your fishing equipment and license are covered. You need to bring your snacks, drinks, sunglasses, hats, and sunblock. Kids ages 6 and above are welcome and the captain provides life vests for them.

Nauti Diver Charters will do their best to create a fun day on the water for you and to make sure to leave the marina with fresh fish in the bag. This is the perfect boat for your next fishing adventure along the Halifax River and Ponce Inlet. Contact today.

I have been fishing and diving the waters off Daytona for 25 years and professionally running charters since 2008. I'm very passionate about fishing and that is why I decided to do it for a living. We will do a lot of bottom fishing offshore and nearshore, using live and dead baits. The best part of these trips is making customers smile and sending them home with a memory.
