He’ll take you to the prime inshore and nearshore fishing spots, showing you remarkable reefs, flats, secluded backcountry waters, and hidden wrecks. Visit him in Naples, Florida and embark on your sea adventure.

Your trip will start on a 27’ Ocean Master center console powered by a 30 HP Yamaha engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots.

You’ll have the chance to target plenty of prized fish, such as Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Pompano, Spotted Seatrout, and many more. Using light tackle, you can bottom fish, troll, and jig. You can choose whether to keep or release the fish you catch, and you’re free to bring along kids on your trip.

Captain William will cover you for all the fishing gear, including rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. He’ll also provide fishing licenses and water, and will clean and fillet your catch free of charge. The only thing you should bring is some food.

Captain William went to college for criminal justice. He moved home and didn't want to become a police officer just yet. So he got his Captain's License, started running charters, and fell in love with meeting new people, watching them catch fish and enjoy Naples waters.
