Nearshore Venice Fishing Charters

Just a few miles off the Gulf of Mexico shoreline, the near shore hosts a wide variety of fish species. As a result, you never know what you’ll catch. For example, on a nearshore trip, you can target Tripletail, Snapper, Amberjack, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, and a variety of Shark species. If you are interested in some fast and furious action, we can take you there. On the other hand, some fishing that’s nearer your ability level might be what you desire. We can target specific species on your Venice fishing charter depending on the season. Or, we can just go with the flow at some hot spots in these waters.

Inshore Venice Fishing Charters

Calm seas, a pleasant climate, and some of the state’s most breathtaking scenery will add to your perfect inshore Venice fishing charter. We provide all the fishing gear for you and your guests. Furthermore, we’ll provide a fishing experience that’s right at the level of your abilities. As a result, you will have an absolutely wonderful day catching Redfish, Tarpon, Snook, Sea Trout, Sharks and others. Enjoy a day among the fertile, saltwater grass flats. The undeveloped mangrove shorelines of Southwest Florida are world-class inshore fishing locations. There are some big fish in these shallow waters!

Tour & Explore Excursion


Explore the Area Surrounding Venice on a Florida Boat Tour

What are you looking for? We can help you search for a beautiful, remote lunch spot. Or maybe just cruise over to North Captiva Island for a drink (with some fishing on the way). What about some island hopping with lunch on Cabbage Key? Or maybe a fun day cruising beaches and looking for shells and shark teeth? We can arrange your personal eco tour. Explore the extensive wildlife refuges of Southwest Florida. Odds are high you may see manatees having fun and showing off.

Additionally, there are sunset and dolphin cruises. There are lots and lots of dolphins. But, there is only one, unique sunset each day. Sunsets never get old.

We also offer a combination cruise, for instance, you might like chasing dolphins, having lunch at Miller’s Dockside and doing a little fishing inbetween. If the fishing ever gets too hot, you can always take a dip and cool off. Your private one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime cruise is waiting for you to make it real. The tripletail are biting, the dolphin and manatee are swimming, Cabbage Key is waiting and the sun is shining. The only thing missing is you. Let’s go have some fun!

Memorial at Sea Excursion


Honor a Loved One with a Burial at Sea

Did your loved one enjoy the coastal beaches? Or, was the open ocean meaningful to them? Then, scattering their cremated remains at sea could be a befitting way to memorialize them. If you’re considering this kind of ceremonial farewell at sea, we offer a scattering of ashes service out of the Gasparilla Marina in Southwest Florida. The benefits can include complete privacy in secluded locations or being completely surrounded by the sea on this special occasion.

Biodegradable water urns are generally available and designed to float away from the boat gently. We discourage scattering any non-biodegradable items along with ashes. For instance, items such as wreaths or personal items might contain plastic or metal parts that can harm wildlife or become litter.

The actual form of the ceremony is completely up to you. Whatever your religion, traditions or belief systems may be, our crew will respectfully abstain from the actual ceremony. However, we can provide flower and music options upon request. The scattering of a loved one’s cremated remains on the sea’s surface is a timeless funeral custom.
