You can choose between a six or eight-hour spearfishing charters. With the eight-hour trip, Captain Blake will take you up to forty miles offshore where cobia and grouper dart and glide among the recesses of artificial reefs, limestone ledges, and a number of shipwrecks which range from sunken barges, to shrimp boats, to freighters torpedoed by German U-boats.

The site offers even more for its potential fishermen by providing exceptional spearfishing sites from which to conceal yourself among the recesses, and ambush your prey with one carefully aimed shot from your spear gun. Whether you prefer to spearfish with or without a scuba tank, there are plenty of snapper, grouper (just leave alone the protected Nassau and Goliath), cobia, hogfish, and sheepshead to catch on an Estero spearfishing charter run by Paradise Coast Charters.

Estero Scuba Diving Charters

There are a countless number of great scuba diving opportunities offshore just outside Estero. Paradise Coast Charters run their scuba diving charters with the sole aim of taking you to the best sites. With his ardent passion for the area, Captain Blake will idle his catamaran up to a spot where one of the artificial reefs or wrecks lay sunken beneath sparkling calm blue waters, and wait patiently for you to complete your swim. He wants you to enjoy your dive safely and responsibly, so a dive master will always be in attendance to guide you if required.  Where and for how long you dive will depend on your certification levels of course, which will first be looked at by Captain Blake in the interests of your own safety.

After that, let him keep a nautical eye on the horizon for any change in the weather while you enjoy swimming underwater with the myriad of saltwater aquatic species that inhabit these dive spots. Dive depths on scuba diving charters vary between 25 to 80 feet, so there is plenty to explore. Keep an eye out especially for the bovine-like Goliath grouper, often found in herds that number a dozen or more. 

Many of the wrecks and reefs are also home to many other species of grouper, as well as snapper, barracuda and much more. Be reassured you will see a variety of fish on one of our scuba diving charters near Estero.
