Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures specializes in Offshore Fishing charters; people also call this Deep Sea Charter Fishing. We offer Deep Sea Fishing Charters from 4½ to 10½ hours in length. A lot of our Deep Sea Fishing is over Natural and Artificial Reefs; we have hundreds of spots to choose from. These Offshore Fishing locations are scattered around the waters surrounding Naples, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and Marco Island. Most of the time we will fish multiple spots on the same Fishing Charter.
Fish species that you can expect to encounter on our Offshore Fishing Charters include: Sharks, Cobia, Snook, King Mackerel, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Goliath Grouper, Snapper, Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, and more depending on the time of year and locations fished. Another big factor in determining what fish species you will target on your Deep Sea Fishing Charter is distance offshore.
The Gulf of Mexico is a relatively shallow body of water and 50 miles offshore it is only about 110 feet deep. This shallow depth means that for some species we will have to run offshore a greater distance than in other destinations. Most of the photos on this website are from our 4½ Hour Deep Sea Fishing Charters which normally fish within 20 miles of shore. There are plenty of fish to catch within sight of land and big ones too. All of our Goliath Grouper on this website were caught on 4 Hour Charters, BUT if you want to catch Big Red Grouper, Big Gag Grouper, and Big Snapper your chances increase greatly by selecting a Full Day Deep Sea Fishing Charter.
Naples Offshore Fishing Excursions
My main goal with our Offshore Fishing Trips is to ensure that you have a safe and fun time on the water.
In addition to being safe and having fun I also like to give clients a shot at landing a big fish, or several big fish! Bringing the fish to the boat is up to you and can be challenging! Don't be surprised if I throw out a bait weighing several pounds...get ready to hang on!
With all this talk about big fish people tend to be intimidated, but there is no reason to be! We can teach you the skills needed to have successful day on the water regardless of experience. If you aren't looking to catch a trophy fish and just looking to catch fish for dinner we can accommodate you! We also love taking families and of course children are always welcome!
The types of fish that you can expect to encounter on our offshore fishing charters range in size from very small to several hundred pounds and include: Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bonita, Goliath Grouper, Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, Sheepshead, Snapper, Snook, Cobia, and many more depending on the time of the year.
Our offshore fishing charters travel up to 45 miles offshore depending on sea conditions and length of charter. 4½ hour charters are usually limited to traveling less than 20 miles offshore due to time constraints.
Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures holds a set of NOAA Reef (RCG-287) and Pelagic (CHG-294) permits which allow us to fish in Federal Waters beyond 9 miles offshore. If you are thinking about booking an Offshore Fishing Charter in the Naples area it is a good idea to inquire with whoever you are thinking about booking with to make sure that they have these. If the company you choose doesn't hold one you will be limited to fishing within 9 miles of shore, or if you do go beyond 9 miles you will be fishing illegally.
Feel free to contact me personally if you have any questions about our offshore fishing charters. Families with children and anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome! We can customize any of our offshore fishing charters to meet the needs of your individual party! We can accommodate all requests to give you the best possible charter fishing experience.
