Would you like to experience unforgettable and fully organized days in one of the best fishing areas in the world? South Florida is a paradise for kayak anglers, adventurers and of course families! We organize this amazing trip to a perfect location right on the water with a fully equipped fishing kayak and, if you wish, a diverse supporting program. And all this at an unbeatable price!
Our destination in Florida is the small charming town of Matlacha on an island in a strait between Pine Island and the mainland of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico, right next to Cape Coral and Fort Myers. Our accommodation – the Fishermen’s Paradise – with its four apartments offers space for up to 8 people and is located right on the water. A total of six fishing kayaks were available for guests, including paddles, life jackets and accessories. A really great location and you only have to paddle a few meters to catch snook, redfish, tarpon, seatrout, ladyfish, jacks, stingray, sharks and many other species.
Price per person is only 990€!
Inclusive: 9 nights at Fishermen’s Paradise in Matlacha including final cleaning and administration costs, fishing kayak with life jacket and paddle for all days, detailed briefing before the trip, help with booking flights and the entry permit for the USA, organization of supporting program (Everglades, Key West, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Shooting Ranch, Bass Pro Shop, Shopping Mall, Cape Canaveral, Daytona Beach etc.), tips for successful fishing and good hot spots, tips for great local restaurants and sights, and all taxes. We support you with the booking of the rental car (for the group) and with the purchase of the fishing licenses.
Extra costs: flights, rental car, fishing license and meals.
The apartments are fully equipped with bath/shower, kitchen, WiFi, TV, BBQ place and parking spaces. Of course you can fish as much as you want all day, but if you are interested, we can organize a few nice day trips for the group to the following destinations:
A trip to the Everglades is highly recommended. A simple car ride on the Tamiami Trail (connects Tampa with Miami) is a great adventure and you can see many alligators. There are numerous stops along the road. Airboat and buggy tours are possible, you can observe wildlife on trails or even paddle through the Everglades with a kayak. This is definitely worth it if you want to meet alligators at eye level. Extra tip: Billie Swamp Safari, about 80 miles from Fort Myers.
A day trip to the city of Miami on the southeast coast of Florida is possible in time. If we start very early and prepare to be back home late at night, we can do it.
Do you want a Caribbean feeling? Then off to the Keys that everyone knows for sure. As a day trip from Fort Myers not an easy undertaking, but quite doable. Small stop at Robbie’s to feed Tarpon, then a nice souvenir photo at Hemingway’s house and at Southernmost Point in Key West.
Walt Disney World Resort
Especially if you have children with you, a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando is a great experience. But plan at least two days for this and think carefully about which of the 4 theme parks or water parks you want to visit.
Kennedy Space Center
Do you want to visit NASA? The Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral are just under 200 miles from Matlacha.
Tampa is with 350,000 inhabitants the third largest city in the state after Miami and Jacksonville. It is only 230 miles from Matlacha.
Fort Myers Beach & Sanibel Beach
If you just want to have a nice day at the beach, then head to Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel. Parking: Lynn Hall Beach Park (Fort Myers) and Bowman’s Beach Parking (Sanibel). Don’t forget your fishing rod.
You want to go fishing all day and the girls want to shop? Let them drive to the Miromar Outlets in Estero with over 140 top designer and brand name outlets. Tip: be sure to eat a burger in Ford’s Garage!
Bass Pro Shop
If you want to shop fishing tackle, be sure to visit the Bass Pro Shop in Fort Myers. With over 130,000 sq. feet of outdoor equipment, wildlife displays, state record replicas, a both a 19,000 freshwater and a 12,000 gallon saltwater aquarium, and an archery range, there is something for everyone!
Fishing Tackle Shops
If tackle or deadbait is needed, the fishing tackle shops D&D Matlacha Bait and Tackle and Cape Tool & Tackle are not far away.
Bert’s Bar & Grill
If you love Dockside Dining & Live Music, order a beer at Bert’s Bar in Matlacha, a one-of-a-kind waterfront restaurant offering delicious and fresh local seafood, refreshing brews, beautiful views, and entertainment nightly.
Fowler Firearms Shooting Range
If you want to shoot, I recommend visiting the Fowler Firearms Shooting Range in Fort Myers. A great team will take care of you, even if you have never had a gun in your hand.
If you want to rent a boat, then you must visit Cabbage Key and eat there in the restaurant. Nearby is the Boca Grande Pass, known as the Tarpon Capital of the World. Usually, between April and October, Tarpon arrive in droves to the waters of Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor and attracts thousands of anglers.
