Southern Girl Fishing Charters

Southeast 10th Lane
Cape Coral FL, United States

Southern Girl Fishing Charters offer luxury professional trips around the Florida Keys. They specialize in offshore fishing but also offer bottom fishing on the reef, Shark and Tarpon night trips, reef snorkel/scuba trips and sightseeing tours on their beautifully maintained luxury Sport Fisher. Extended overnight trips are also available to a variety of locations such as Cuba, the Bahamas and the many other attractive destinations accessible from Key Largo. .

Southern Girl is well equipped with top-of-the-range gear and is beautifully appointed. The salon features air-conditioning, beautiful leather furniture and wonderful wood work, stainless steel appliances, an ice maker, and a stereo and television for those who prefer to get out of the sun and relax in luxury. There is also have a private cabin and head available for those who would like to snooze on the cruise.  Southern Girl’s fishing cockpit is well equipped and features a tackle center and freezer for the catch.

If you’re wondering why these charter trip times are typically 2 hours longer than other boats in the area, it’s because Capt. Jon has noticed that the fish tend to bite the most in the late afternoon, meaning on normal length trips you have to go home just after things start heating up. If you came out to catch fish then he would hate you to have to leave at this point, so has added extra time to the trips to give you a more productive time on the water. If you don’t have 10 hours to spare the extended half day trip might be the one for you.

The company’s focus is first on safety then fun. They are flexible so don’t hesitate to send an inquiry if you have special requests or concerns. Some past examples have included catered meals, bar services, clothing optional and 420 friendly. Captain Jon is a qualified diver and is always happy to include diving and spearfishing on his trips. Whatever you decide to go for, Southern Girl Charters will make your vacation wonderful.

About the Captain

I have been involved in ocean sports my whole life. I moved to the Florida Keys 5 years ago I got my captains license. I captained several privately owned boats leading to the opportunity to work on Southern Girl fishing charter boat. I have been lucky to fish with some retired captains with decades of knowledge fishing local waters so I have been able to learn from the best integrating their tips and tricks into my style. I will guarantee professional courteous service. I am easy going but concentrate on the hunt and catch to give everyone a great time. Safety and fun are my major focus.

My family and I had a terrific time out on the Souther Girl.  Very professional captain and crew.  Extremely polite and knowledgeable about fishing and diving.  Was very impressed about the respect they have for the reef and sea creatures.  We saw some of the most amazing fish on the reef.  The captain and crew worked with us on lerning how to snorkel .  It was the most amazing trip we ever had on a charter.  This is a must do if your looking , A+++  rating.

I have fished on many different charters but my time on the Southern Girl will be one that stands out among all the rest. Captain Jon had us on the fish all day, his knowledge of the fish migrations, tackle and tactics were beyond reproach. The crew was was very courteous and helpful also. Southern Girl was meticulously maintained and in pristine condition. Thanks Jon and crew for making our trip one that will be talked about for years!
