Endless Summer Charters, est. 2002, runs inshore and offshore charters from one of the best fishing locations in SW Florida, Port Sanibel Marina in Fort Myers, Florida. Their captains are happy to take on anglers of all ages and experience levels, from families with kids to veteran fishermen. All native Floridians, the captains of Endless Summer Charters will show you their favorite places to fish. They also do "Combo Charters" which include a full day of fishing, stopping at remote shelling beaches, a stop for lunch at an island restaurant only reachable by boat, and hunting for dolphins eager to play just feet from the boat.

You will be on a 24’ Sheaffer Bay Boar with a 300 Yamaha or a 25’ C-Hawk Bay Boat with a 300 Yamaha. Both boats are a perfect option for both navigating the flats as well as going offshore for Kingfish, Grouper, etc. Apart from all the necessary navigation and safety gear, boats also have t-tops that gives needed shade during warm summer days. There’s plenty of space on board for four anglers to fish in comfort. However, depending on the trip, the boat can carry up to six passengers.

There’s always something to be caught in this part of Florida. Some of the regulars are Snook, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Jacks, while summertime is Tarpon time. Sharks can also be found for a large part of the year and are fun for the entire family. Going a few miles offshore is where you can find Kingfish, Barracuda, Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, and more.

All vessels and gear are kept in tip top shape and kept at a marina.
All the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need are included in the price of a given trip. Once the trip is over, the captain will clean and fillet the catch for your convenience. Lunch stops can also be arranged if you’d like to have a bite to eat during the trips. You are also free to bring your snacks aboard if you prefer.

Captains Bill, Hunter & CJ are proficient at their jobs and love to show what SW Florida has to offer.

Captain Bill Hammond grew up here in SW Florida, fishing the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If he wasn’t born in SW Florida he would have made it here eventually. His wife, Angela (whose family has fished or guided here since the 1800s) coordinates the charter side of things and shares Bill's love for fishing. We also have Capt. CJ LaFauci, who is also a native guide. All our captains are top-notch and each has their own style of getting their customers on some great fishing!
