“BEST DAY EVER!!!!!”
Review of Barefoot Charters

Attraction details
Owner description: Come see how generations have lived off the sea. How crabbers fish, see oyster bars and learn how the water has its own rules and highways. Take a trip to Ft Myers Beach and get a up close look at working shrimp boats, or just bounce around from island to island for some cool island drinks and great local food. Give us a call for some great fishing, shelling, sunset cruises and much more.

“BEST DAY EVER!!!!!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Joe!!!!!! We never did make it back to Captiva on Thursday with all our packing. We need your address ;)

We fell upon our trip out with Joe by pure fate after visiting cayo costa with each and every trip out to Sanibel. We couldn't have gotten and luckier or been amy more happy. Cooler filled with ice for our needs and Joe set out to find us the Manatees that I am so passionate about and coincidentaly gave us a thorough education on Eagles (which is my Husbands passion, Joe not knowing) while we waited for our Manatees to come say hello, which they did. He knew just where to go. After being late leaving Cayo, fault of mine, we headed into a double storm where Joe took us over to Barnacles on N. Capitva for a drink and game playing to ride out the storm. This man is 100%! We had laughs and fun and truly made a friend, TOP Guy for whatever for adventure your soul or heart seeks out on the water. We'll see you sooner than later! Much love, Heather, Diego, Alexa, Leah and Taylor!!!!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Castaways and met up with Captain Joe. First trip out was shelling, sight seeing, then fishing. Had such a great trip went back a second day. Caught a sting ray (LOL). One of the best days my son has ever had. Definatly going back next year for more memories.

“Captain Joe knows his stuff!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

We took a four hour charter with Capt. Joe in the morning and had an awesome time! We caught two large speckled trout and lots of catfish (which you don't want). Then, I hooked a beautiful redfish...not only had I never heard if them, but had no idea what gorgeous fish they are. Good fighters, too.
I managed to catch one more before we headed back to the marina.

We saw rays, a bonnet head shark, lots of cranes, herons, egrets and bald eagles. We were almost back and saw some manatee, too.

Capt. Joe is friendly, knowledgable, entertaining and appealed to our redneck sensibilities :D
He really knows a lot about fishing and the area...we learned a lot.

Best fishing trip I've ever been on!

He even sent us home with redfish filets and his special seasoning mixture, which we will use tonight when we grill the fish.

“Wonderful Trip with Young Kids”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We took a chartered boat tour with Barefoot Charter's Captain Joe last year. The kids had a great time and they are STILL talking about it. The boat was clean and safe. We went on a shelling tour and the kids enjoyed it very much. We hope to go back again to maybe try some fishing!
