My family started vacationing in Naples over 20 years ago. My earliest memories of Florida are the boating and fishing trips my dad would always take me on. Nothing was more fun and I could never get enough of it! Flash forward 10 years and we moved to Naples. Throughout high school I would spend my afternoons/weekends on the water exploring new areas and trying to catch all kinds of fish. I went to Eckerd College and received a BS in Marine science. While prepping for grad school I worked for a resort and ran charters for them. It didn't take long before I set grad school aside and decided to start my own charter business, Paradise Coast Charters.

We really enjoyed our offshore trip with Captain Blake.  The boat was well suited and equipped for the excursion.  Even the members of the party with very limited fishing experience had a great time.  Reeling in a nearly 5 foot shark on light tackle while sea turtles and a dolphin swam nearby was a memorable experience!  Thanks Captain Blake!

Went off shore about 18 miles. Lots of action but mostly small catch. Capt. Was good, knowledgeable and worked hard.

Hi Steve,

I am sorry to see that your overall experience was not great in your review. We caught a ton of fish that day, probably close 180 fish, and i apologize that not many were very “big”. I fished the same area the day before and we caught more sizable fish. If you guys want to target larger fish I would recommend a full day 8 hr trip where we can travel 30+ miles offshore. These reviews mean a lot to us so I want to ensure that you book the trip that best suits your wants and needs in the future.

I hope to see you guys again next year!
Tight lines,
Capt. Blake Borgeson
