SWFL Premier Charters

SWFL Premier Charters is an experienced professional guide service that offers their clients a fun and memorable day on the water. Join Captain Nick who’s been fishing and navigating the Southwest Florida waters since he was a kid. With over 30 years of experience, he’ll ensure you have a safe, productive, and enjoyable trip.
 
You’ll be fishing on a 23’ Sabalo that accommodates up to 4 anglers. A true guide boat with exceptional capabilities to keep you high and dry, this vessel was specifically designed to fish the inshore and nearshore waters of Florida’s Gulf Coast. The boat was fully refurbished in 2019 with Lowrance electronics, Mercury outboard, Minn Kota wireless GPS trolling motor, and eye-catching custom upholstery.
 
You’ll fish for a variety of species using an assortment of live bait caught by Capt. Nick just prior to your trip. Some of your possible trophies are Snook, Redfish, Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Grouper, and Sheepshead, among others. SWFL Premier Charters also offers a Shark package where you’ll have the opportunity to experience drag screaming excitement while fighting species such as Blacktip, Bull, Hammerhead, and Lemon Shark. Seasonal Tarpon trips are also available.
 
All trips are family-friendly and suitable for anglers of all skill levels. Children are welcome to join under parents’ supervision.
 
Your tackle and fishing license are fully covered by the captain. There’s drinking water on the boat but feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks. For your convenience, the captain offers multiple pick up locations in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, and Sanibel and Captiva Islands.
 
SWFL Premier Charters has a goal to make every guest feel at ease and not only catch fish but do everything within the captain’s power to ensure you have a good time and go home with a little more fishing knowledge than with which you came. Enjoy a day on the water with your loved ones, relax, and have fun while learning new tricks and techniques!

Captain Nick moved to Southwest Florida in 1989 and it was at that time where his love for the waterways of Southwest Florida and fishing began . Growing up on the bimini basin canal system in Cape Coral enabled him to fish daily, navigate the waterways and learn from some of the best in the area.
