Fishing Charter Info/Rates

All of our backcountry fishing trips start out from Caxambas Marina, located on the southern end of Marco Island, the gate way to the 10,000 islands. Check map for details. Once aboard, you’re only a minute away from your fishing spots!

What’s included:
Florida fishing license, all fishing tackle necessary for the fishing charter, cooler with ice, bait, fillet and bagging of your catch.

What to bring on your fishing charter:
Polarized glasses, camera, hat, sunscreen 30spf, loose fitting light-weight clothing, drinks (water) and snacks. Please wear non-marking sole shoes. No Black Or Marking Sole shoes permitted.

What you can expect:
Travel distance from one backcountry fishing spot to another is kept down to a minimal, and depends on the length of the charters booked. I believe in keeping running time down and spending more time with lines in the water. This is a fishing trip - not just another boat ride. What you can expect to see are indigenous birds such as brown and white Pelicans, Bald Eagles, Roseate Spoonbill, Great Blue Herons and White Ibis. In the water you can expect to see Bottle Nose Dolphins, Manatees, Sea Turtles, and schools of bait fish as you travel through the endless chains of mangrove islands and open water. It’s not uncommon to find yourself lost within minutes from leaving the dock, and you may never see another boat while fishing.

When fishing in the backwaters, you will be fishing exclusively in the remote waters along mangroves shorelines and not in canals behind homes. As your captain, I am committed in protecting this fascinating and complex ecosystem, so let me capture a picture of your trophy game fish for a lifetime memory. I can fillet some species of fish for dinner and recommend which restaurants can cook your catch.

Cancellation Policy:
Cancellation initiated by you must be made before fourteen (14) days of your booked fishing charter date. The deposit can be transferred for another day of fishing or refunded to you. Any cancellations due to weather related conditions is the sole discretion of the Captain Carlos Escarra. Your safety is of my first and foremost importance; however rain squalls appear and dissipate quickly in South Florida. It could be raining in one area and be completely dry and sunny in another. If your charter is canceled by Captain Carlos Escarra, then you will have the choice to re-book for another day or receive a full refund.
