Overview
More
From Marco Island south into the Everglades National Park, the unique waters of Southwest Florida's bays, rivers and near shore habitat offer some of the best fishing in the world. You will travel through areas in a specially designed boat that can navigate these shallow waters and take you to remote areas seen by few and fished by even fewer.

We have been coming to Marco for the past 30 years and there is no better Fishing Captain than Captain Dave Anderson. His knowledge of the backwater is superior and we always catch a ton of fish with him. I have NEVER caught as much...More

My wife and I have gone out with Captain Dave for several years now and I can assure you, it can't get any better than a day (or half day) with Captain Dave. He is the BEST, period.
