You came for the water to Apalachicola, so climb aboard! Not being a native to Florida doesn’t necessarily make you less passionate about helping folks, like you, get to know the Forgotten Coast from it’s best perspective. In fact,  Dream On Fishing Charters like to think it makes them more passionate. Being Kentucky natives, they traveled here in 2016 and after spending just 3 days here, decided to move 750 miles to enjoy life to the fullest.

Captain Ronald knows that how you spend your family’s vacation time and money are well calculated decisions, and he’ll do everything in our power to show you a great time whether you’re in the bay or in the Gulf.

You’ll be fishing on a 25’ Sea Fox that accommodates up to 6 guests. She’s powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and a wireless trolling motor, and features navigational electronics, a private toilet, and top-notch fishing equipment.

For the Dream On Fishing Charters crew, being a charter is not a job, it’s a way to share all the blessings and adventures they get to experience. A way to take you out and unplug and gain a more simplistic focus on this grand adventure called life.

We can spend the day fishing, where it seems the fish are going to pull you off before you get ‘em in. You can also combine fishing with shelling on beautiful little St. George Island, where you can hardly step and miss a shell, or cruise around and be mesmerized by all the dolphins and manta rays.

Join Dream On Fishing Charters. Your hearts will be full, and hopefully your belly.
