Come and explore the rich waters of southwest Florida and the 10,000 Islands National Preserve with a true local guide. Captain Nick Thorstenson was raised on Marco Island and has spent his whole life fishing. He and his other captains know all the best fishing spots and promise to take you to the best hunting grounds in search of the exciting and delicious fish that call these waters home.
Hop aboard a spacious 25’ Parker center console and enjoy a day on these rich waters. Fitted with a large t-top cover, you’ll have plenty of shade to hide from the sun, while the open deck will provide ample opportunity for sun junkies to get their tan on. There’s room for up to 6 on board, but with two vessels at his disposal, Capt. Nick and his team can happily take up to 12 on a day out. Just get in touch and arrange a trip to suit your needs!
Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, there’s space for you on board. Bring the whole family along to enjoy in a fun-filled day of fishing, with everything you need for a productive day provided. Your captain will even provide ice and coolers, so all you need to do is bring some drinks and snacks aboard and settle in for a thrilling day out.
The stunning scenery will be enough to leave you gobsmacked, with Bottlenose Dolphins swimming around the thousands of islands that give this spot its name. When it comes to the fishing, you’re in for a serious treat going up against some of the country’s most prized inshore species. Put your angling skills to the test and head home with a boatload of fish, as you target Groupers, Snappers, Permit, Pompano, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, and many more!
You can even head to a secluded beach and fish from there or hop in the water to make the most of your southwest Florida adventure. Everything is possible with Native Guided Fishing Charters! Come aboard and let this premium guide service show you the best of Florida.
