Welcome to Naples and the world of boat chartering. For years, families and groups have been loving the beauty, surprise and delight of Naples and all that it has to offer. And many have discovered that the only way to get to some of these exclusive and untouched gems in the area, is by chartering boats or catamarans for day trips down the picturesque intercoastal channel all the way down from Naples to Marco Island.


The Island Dreamer Boat Charters is the newest way to explore adventures on and surrounding the waters. Always accompanied by a certified, licensed Master Captain and with half day and full day rentals that are completely customizable to your needs, you can design a boating excursion to meet your every need. So if you are worried about having to navigate the difficult-to-maneuver waters in the channel (we can share some unfortunate stories of those who, oops, got stuck out there!) or want more than what is often offered in “set package only” type boating charters, then you’re in the right place. Welcome Aboard!


Whether you are a fisherman with years of experience or just a beginner, I will take you on a offshore/backwater/nearshore (whatever your preference is) that you will never forget!!!! I have been fishing this saltwater paradise for over 35 years and I am still amazed at the abundance of wildlife and natural beauty in our waters. Together we will see miles of secluded waterways, many species of birds, dolphins, occasional manatees and a variety of species of fish.

Backwater fishing in the scenic waters around the Marco Island/ Naples area, you could expect to catch Redfish, Trout, Snook, and maybe even the Silver King, or Tarpon. Travel slightly further out to the nearshore waters and reefs, and Captain Joey could put you on Sheepshead, Grouper, large Black Drum, Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, and Tripletail. With a boat that is perfect for both drift fishing and anchored fishing, you have a variety of fishing options available, and with both live and artificial bait carried on board you can have a varied and effective fishing trip. For Offshore/Deep Sea fishing we will take you exploring the finest grounds in and around Naples up to 80 miles out where you will be able to sample anything from Redfish and Grouper to Barracuda, Kingfish, Amberjack, Cobia, and Permit. Redfish and Snook are also around!
