Naples Florida Spearfishing Charters
Book a spearfishing charter in Naples Florida! Spearfishing is the most exciting way to fish. Spearfishing in Naples and Marco Island is unique. Did you know it was illegal to spearfish in Collier County up until July 2013? It is now legal to spearfish in State Waters in Collier. This is thanks to the Naples Spearfishing League and SCUBAdventures staff member Bill D'Antuono. The Naples Spearfishing League Hosts frequent tournaments, events and seminars so check out thier Facebook page to stay informed.
There are plenty of fish to be brought home for dinner. Limited visibility nearshore is caused by Lake Okechobee runoff coupled by lack of the Florida Gulf Stream. This is the main reason we do most of our diving on the East Coast, Florida Keys &elsewhere all over the world.
A good majority of Southwest Florida Spearfishing trips consist of long runs offshore in search of clear water and even then visibility can be limited. We are now offering trips to these destinations! There are days where nearshore waters are clear so we keep an eye on weather patterns for the ideal days to go offshore.
By looking at our spearfishing pictures below you can get an idea of what types of fish to expect. Hogfish, Mangrove snapper and grouper top the list of desired species. All these fish are some of the best eating fish in the ocean.
Lionfish is a detrimental species that is becoming prevailent in our local waters and are encouraged to be removed by the only effective method, spearfishing. Oh yea, Lionfish are GREAT eating! You can find more info on lionfish below.
