Let Capt. Bill Hammond, Capt. Matt Johnson and Capt. Ethan Hansen with ENDLESS SUMMER CHARTERS show you some of the best back bay and near shore fishing in SW Florida. Catch Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Shark, Mackerel, Trout and so much more in the waters of Sanibel, Captiva, Fort Myers & Fort Myers Beach! Whether you are an avid fisherman or a family with kids, they have the experience for both. Don’t take our word for it, check out our TripAdvisor reviews for Sanibel Island Fishing Charters & Tours!

Here at Endless Summer Charters we not only offer fishing charters but eco-tours. sunset cruises and sight-seeing tours. A combo charter is a nice way to spend the day by combining fishing, shelling, and a trip to lunch at Cabbage Key Inn. Our typical combo trip includes inshore/backbay fishing, some shelling on Cayo Costa or North Captiva, birdwatching on the many mangrove islands of Pine Island Sound, observing Dolphin in their natural habitat, Manatee loafing about in the bay and so much more!

Tarpon fishing also has it’s own season and are typically here April through August. People travel from all parts of the world to fish the “Tarpon Capital of the World”. The first tarpon landed was here in Tarpon Bay on the shores of Sanibel Island. There’s nothing like the adrenaline rush of catching the renowned Silver King!

As an alternative, year round night snook charters or night shark trips in May-September are perfect for someone that wants to catch big fish without the heat of the day. Kids love it and our average shark varies from 24″ to 6 ft. It’s also a beautiful way to take in the sunset and see a few dolphin too.

At Endless Summer Charters we love sharing our passion for fishing and our love for the islands of SW Florida. As natives of S.W. Florida our captains are full time professional guides. Capt. Bill and Capt. Matt have the local knowledge to give you the best experience possible no matter which charter style you choose.

Our top of the line 25′ Blue Wave Pure Bay boat as well as our 2400 Key West Bay Boat are the perfect boats for backwater and Sanibel flats fishing AND it allows us to go off-shore when the Tarpon or King Mackerel are running or perfect for a little Grouper fishing on calm days. Our boats have t-tops for shade on those hot, sunny days. You’re really getting a lot of boat for the money and we can comfortably accommodate up to six passengers inshore and four offshore.
