Our adventures begin in the backwaters of southwest Florida. Known for their warm and calm waters, inshore fishing spots are breeding grounds for some of our favorite fish.

Inshore fishing, Captain Sullivan’s specialty, is perfect for a relaxing day out on the water. Taking place in water no deeper than thirty meters, inshore fishing gives Florida natives and seasonal guests the opportunity to explore the beautiful backwaters in a serene, relaxing environment. Because the waters typically are calmer than in the open ocean, there’s a much smaller chance you’ll be rocked by waves. This makes inshore charters a great opportunity for those who haven’t gotten their sea legs yet.

Because you’ll be going out in shallow water, boats are traditionally small. This means a close-knit experience for families and friends. You can enjoy a calm day on the water without the crowding of offshore trips.

Light rods and small nets are provided as requested.

Fish typically caught include:

  • Redfish
  • Snook
  • Trout
  • Tarpon
  • Snapper
  • Pompano
  • Flounder
