Kid with Fish

About Caloosa Charters

At Caloosa Charters we’re passionate about fishing and shelling in Southwest Florida! There’s nothing we love more than to show our guests a great time catching fish or finding shells.

What makes Caloosa Charters unique?

We’re Experienced

When you reserve a fishing charter or shelling charter with us at Caloosa Charters, you’ll get the benefit of Captain Patrick’s 30 years of Southwest Florida experience. He’s an accomplished tournament fisherman, has been featured in Onshore Offshore Magazine, and knows all the best spots in 100 square miles of water.

Not all captains know their trade as well as Captain Patrick. If you hired someone who didn’t know the best spots and techniques, you might waste time looking around instead of having a blast catching fish or finding shells. Learn more about Captain Patrick.

We’re Friendly

Some charter companies aren’t welcoming to families. Some expect you to have previous fishing experience. We welcome all ages and skill levels. If you’ve never held a fishing rod, we’ll make sure you have a great time learning how! And if you’re an experienced angler, we’ll provide you with the quality tackle and the local expertise you’ll need to catch a big one!

We’re Flexible

If you’re only available on a day we’re already busy, we’ll set you up with a friendly, trusted partner who has similar experience.

Above all, we want you to have a great time!
