If you want to experience the fishing action of the area, Sanibel Saltwater Adventures is there for you! The highly experienced Captain Daniel Muench will take you under his wing, and he’ll show you all the tricks and tips to get the right catch.

Explore the area on board what is considered to be one of the finest flats boats on the market today. The 18’ Maverick can accommodate 2 guests, so it’s perfect for couples or fishing with your best bud. This boat is great in rough conditions and the shallowest of creeks!

I have always loved to fish since I was very young. I was fishing any pond or creek I could find. My grandfather started an RV park on Sanibel in the late '60s which is still there and operating today. We visited here all my life while growing up and I finally moved here permanently in 1991. Even though I have been fishing in the Sanibel area for over 30 years, I still get excited when I catch a nice fish! Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Triple Tail are my favorites.
