Captain Scott and First Mate Liz provided a great experience. We had 4 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 8). Everyone loved it! We saw lots of wildlife (including dolphins) and learned several great facts.

Six of us paid $225 each for a ten hour fish charter, forty plus miles off the coast of Fort Myers Beach.....we had a great time, caught some fish but a couple of things didn't sit well with us.....The main complaint was that when I caught a 50lb Amberjack the first mate said we may not like the taste and...

We rented a 22 foot pontoon boat for a half day (afternoon). The staff was very helpful, courteous and friendly. It was a beautiful day and we stopped and fished at different mangrove islands and up the Estero River. Lots of birds and dolphins, but no manatees that day. Highly recommend Fishtale for everything from boats to fishing gear and... More

Good location for accessing the bay and Big Carlos Pass. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with the process and appreciated their attention to detail. This was my first experience renting a fishing boat from them. I was a little disappointed that the boat didn't even have a depth gauge, the steering was stiff and... More

I rented two Grady Whites over Christmas break. Boats were in good shape, reasonable, and an easy place to rent a boat. We rented for 8 hours. Gives you time to go wherever you want ( we went up to North Captiva ).

We took the 10 am Dolphin Cruise from Fish- Tale Marina, it is a boat ride on a pontoon boat out into the Estero Bay. Captain Justin did a great job of giving us a tour of bird watching and history of the area. The Dolphins were fun to watch, it is always a thrill to see these big manuals... More
