We offer offshore charter fishing trips for up to 6 passengers departing from Getaway Marina off the north end of Ft.Myers Beach. Trips range from 6 to 10 hours. We anchor and bottom fish for grouper and snapper and everyone has their own fishing rod. Our most popular trips are 10 hour trips where we concentrate on catching red grouper for the table. For our trips, and the Gulf of Mexico in general, the longer the trip, the farther we can go, the deeper the water, which in turn typically yields bigger fish. Our 6 hour trip is a great family trip, with lots of action. We usually catch enough for dinner with a chance for a bigger fish or keeper grouper. And the 8 hour trip is in between, but you'll have a better chance at a keeper grouper or 2, than the 6 hour charter.
