Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures

13535 Vanderbilt Drive
Naples FL, United States

Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures invites you to explore the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico, cruising out of Naples, Florida. Fish up to 45 miles out for anything from Grouper to Sharks. Enjoy a fun and productive day with your fishing buddies, family, and friends.

The company is run and operated by Captain Ted Gibson. He knows the waters like the back of his hand, being a real threat to any fish. Ted’s repertoire includes fishing in the Everglades National Park, the Gulf of Alaska, and more.

Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures pride themselves in being able to cater to your specific needs and wishes, whether that means catching a fish of a lifetime or sorting your weekly dinners out.

Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures holds a set of NOAA Reef and Pelagic Permits that allows them to fish in Federal Waters beyond 9 miles offshore. With Captain Ted, you can rest assured that you will get the real offshore experience.

You will go out aboard a recently uphauled 29’ Intrepid center console. Its twin 250 HP Mercury engines will power you to the hottest grounds in the area and all Garmin navigational and fish finding electronics will aid your search for the fish. The boat is outfitted with professional accessories and tools, including Yeti 160 coolers, St. Croix rods, and Penn reels. Plus, there is a toilet on board!

Stay within State waters and fish over natural ledges, reefs, and artificial structures. Or head a further out for a healthy dose of Snapper or target Goliath Grouper after you’ve caught your dinner.

All trips come with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with a license, St. Croix and Penn rods and reels, lures, bait, and drinks. When you return to shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan.

    This is the same trip as our 8 ½ Hour Offshore Charter. The extra two hours gives you time to fish more spots. We cruise at about 30 mph, so it takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes to get from the dock to 45 miles offshore. More time means that we can target more species of fish. If you are looking to reef fish and wreck fish we can do it on the 8 ½ Hour Offshore Charter, but it can be a rush to fit everything in. This is more like a 10 ½ hour minimum and usually is closer to 12 hours.

    There is a big jump between this charter and the 6 ½ Hour Offshore Charter as far as distance offshore goes. This trip will go up to 45 miles offshore. For most of the year you'll have a very good shot at catching multiple keeper sized red grouper. Also, some of the wrecks at this distance will hold Amberjack and Barracudas. During the summer months; the Yellow Tail Snapper fishing can be very good as well!

    This trip is very similar to our 4 ½ Hour Offshore Charter, but it gives you extra time to fish more spots and get offshore a little further (up to 20 miles offshore). The snapper fishing is usually a little better at this distance and most of the time charter you'll be looking at catching plenty of fish for dinner! If we go the full 20 mile distance you will be out of sighte of land.

    This is our most popular charter! This trip ventures up to 12 miles offshore where we can encounter: Mangrove Snapper, Grunts, Lane Snapper, Smaller Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, Sharks, Goliath Grouper, Bonita, King Mackerel and More! Its a good trip for those of you looking to try fishing in the Gulf without having to commit the whole day to it. Generally we are able to try for a couple big fish and if that isn't happening we can usually at least catch enough fish for dinner.

    This is a good trip for families! We go fishing for two hours and then we cruise the backwaters for two hours searching for dolphins. The fishing portion goes up to 5 miles offshore, so if your main focus is fishing you are better off booking one of our dedicated fishing charters! You will catch fish, but catching dinner is not always a sure thing on this trip. The amount of time we spend fishing or looking for dolphins on this trip is up to you; just be sure to let me know your focus!

This is a nice quick fishing trip for families or couples. It's always cool to have the sunsetting as you are heading back in the background while you are heading back to Wiggins Pass!

Even though the waters were rough, we had a very enjoyable outing.  Captain Ted Gibson is the best!  He knows his business and worked unbelievably hard to insure our good time, and safety.  I highly recommend an outing with Captain Ted!

We all had a wonderful time. We caught at least 60 fish King mackerel, Spanish mackerel, Goliath groupers, Jacks, Bonita, blue runners I don’t think there was a minute to rest it was non stop. Captain Ted was top notch and was fun to be around. I’ve been fishing my whole life and was without question the best fishing I’ve ever experienced.
