Offshore Naples offers an unforgettable and comfortable experience on the water in Naples and Marco Island, Florida. Enjoy a unique aquatic experience that will leave you wanting more.

Captain Bill has hundreds of fishing & diving spots to chose from and will leave you wanting more. Aside from being on the water almost every day, Capt. Bill writes a monthly fishing column in the Coastal Angler Magazine and is a vocal advocate for clean water and fishing rights. Capt. Bill is also a certified dive master with over 1000 logged dives, is CPR-First Aid trained and an o2, which will be carried onboard.

Test the waters in and around Naples, departing from Gordon’s pass. Fish natural bottom, wrecks, and artificial reefs. Bottom fish for Snapper, float bait on the surface for pelagic fish. You will be targeting King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Permit, Cobia, Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, and more! According to Captain Bill, the best thing about fishing is the uncertainty and excitement that follows.

Offshore Naples will take you out aboard a 35’ Contender center console. This is a clean and seaworthy fishing machine that comes powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. The boat is fitted with the latest touch-screen electronics, hands-free anchor, fresh water shower, an ample sound system, easy-to-use ladder, substantial under-deck stowage, live well, and 20 rod holders. There is plenty of room, shade, and seating for up to six anglers.

All trips come with licenses, premium rod and reel combos, bait, and tackle. Captain Bill will clean and filet your fish as well.

As a life-long Naples Native I have grown up and been obcessed with the Gulf of Mexico my entire life. I started fishing on a 16' aluminum skiff powered by a Evinrude 25hp motor. From there I learned the many tactics and skills required to land trophy fish. Eventually I found my true calling of offshore fishing and diving. I am a certified Dive Master with over 1000 logged dives and know the dynamics of each spot we will fish because I have dove them all. My goal is to have a fun and educating day on the water with the opportunity to bring home many fresh meals with fishing stories that will last a lifetime. I had worked at a SCUBA shop for 5 years and have dove just about every spot offshore of Naples. My favorite place to fish in the Dry Tortugas, 120 miles SW of Naples, FL. My 500hp 35' Contender gets us to the fishing spots safetly and quickly. Join Offshore Naples on the water for fishing, spearfishing, recreational diving, sightseeing and custom charters.

Did not catch any keepers (groupers and mangrove snappers). Moving around too much. No cabin considering we have a woman in the group.

Sorry you did not like your trip. Our full day trips are our grouper trips. 3/4 day trips, like this one, are bottom fishing for snappers with possibility for other fish which may include grouper. We went offshore 30 miles to increase our chances for grouper. Normally my 3/4 day trips are 15-20 miles. We were catching keeper fish on every drop. Your group went home with almost 100 fish and we even hooked into a few sharks which were great on our light tackle rods. I would suggest the full day trip to target grouper next time. You seemed satisfied with the trip and I even stayed out an extra hour trying to hunt down grouper fishing some spots that have produced nice grouper in the past. . Again, sorry you were not satisfied but we did find some nice quality fish. Tight lines. Capt Bill
