I have fished the waters of swfl my whole life. I love fishing and it is my passion. There is nothing better than watching a kid catch his dream fish and seeing the smile on their face. This is why I have chosen this career of being a charter captain.

I would recommend SW Florida Fishing and Eco. My friend and I wanted to experience a couple of different things that afternoon. I looked into numerous other charter companies, but no one else would allow us to “build” our own itineray. We asked that the first two hours we would attempt to look for manatee. The second two hours we asked to do some saltwater fishing. Our Captain agreed and we were off. He was able to not only find us a manatee, he was able to find us a Mom and calf!! It was amazing. We were able to see and photo them for more than 15 minutes. Once WE wanted to leave, he asked us, he headed to his fishing grounds. We asked for nothing too choppy, and if that meant we did not catch any, so be it. He immediately knew where to go to catch fish in calm waters. Everyone caught a couple of fish of different varieties. I would recommend this charter service to anyone, but especially a family. He is willing to work with you on what YOU want, not just what the company thinks you want. Fabulous. Our next trip down to Florida will include a charter with him again. His knowledge was stellar, and if he can put up with my constant questions and comments, then he can handle an inquisitive 8 year old!! Thanks again.

Captain Ryan was thoughtful enough to call the day before and forewarn us that the weather conditions weren’t ideal for fishing, and he offered to move our fishing excursion to a date later in the week. Unfortunately, our schedule wasn’t as flexible and we chose to follow through with fishing despite the colder, windy conditions. We still caught some nice fish - mangrove snapper and sheepshead, and even better we had a nice dolphin show while we were waiting for the fish to bite! Captain Ryan has a lot of knowledge to share, was very helpful, and professional.

Although we didn’t ” kill em” on the water with numorous catches, we did spot a shark, saw Dolphins and visited several spots on our half day trip.  I, as an ametuer fisherman, enjoyed getting to know captain Ryan and was amazed of his wealth of knowledge of the waters.
