Capt. Dan Edwards of AmVet Charters fishes the beautiful Charlotte Harbor in the Fall, Winter and Spring, and the awesome Florida Keys in the Summer. Come join him. Take advantage of his discounted rates. Disabled veterans are welcome and accommodated, because he is one himself.

All fishing charters include ice, quality tackle and licenses. Clients are responsible for their own beverages and snacks, unless previously agreed that the captain would provide them.

When Capt. Dan guides, he tries to use the knowledge he learned while serving in the military to run his business to the best of his ability. He pledges to pay attention to every little detail in making your fishing trip one of the best experiences of your lifetime.

Capt. Dan has fished from the North Atlantic to Kodiak, Alaska to the Florida Keys. He has fished Mexico and Central America. He has learned techniques to make him successful and is willing to answer any questions you have even if you don’t charter my boat. He looks forward to hearing from you but is even more excited to meet you if you do purchase a charter in Beautiful Southwest Florida or the exquisite Florida Keys.

Capt. Dan was raised here in Southwest Florida. He learned to fish from a local Captain when he was a kid. He is a service connected disabled veteran retired from the U.S.C.G.

The captain is an excellent host and very accommodating. High winds did not make the trip what we expected. He made the best of a not so good weather condition. Limited sun shelter is the only drawback.

Good trip. Dan knew the waters. Focused on keeping our poles in the water for us. I would definitely use again.

Captain Dan was an excellent skipper and worked diligently to make our time the best we could have.  He searched out numerous fishing spots, served as a tour guide and ensured our continued comfort.  I would definitely recommend Captain Dan and would use his services again.
