Pontoon Boat Tours Ft Myers Beach

Pontoon Boat Tours invites you on their boat for a fun day of fishing or cruising in Fort Myers Beach in Florida. This charter is made for pleasure and relaxation, and the crew who operate it are experts at providing such experiences.

They can take you and your group of friends and family on an unforgettable ride in the calm waters of Estero Bay and further out.

If you go for the fishing, you will do so in the calm waters from Hurricane Pass to Big Carlos. This area hosts a variety of shallow water fish such as Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Snook, Trout, Sheepshead, Pompano, and more.

The crew will provide the necessary fishing gear which includes live baits, and a fishing license. The first mate is available by request or for groups of more than 6 guests.

Pontoon Boat Tours also offer Sightseeing and Sunset cruises which last 2 hours and can be extended if the captain and crew are available.

You will go out aboard a 33-foot Maurell deck boat powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine. This engine makes it ideal for cruising and will also get you to your designated fishing grounds efficiently. The boat also features a restroom for your convenience. 

Pontoon Boat Tours was an idea of two local fishermen with a wish to provide locals and tourists a getaway on the calm waters of Estero Bay and share their Love of the waters. Both have over 30 years of fishing the waters at Ft Myers Beach. Their Captain has over 15 years of experience. They are US Coast Guard Certified, licensed and insured.

This is a very family friendly charter operated by a crew who are able to provide a lot of information and facts about the local culture, area, wildlife and more.
