Marco Island Deep Sea Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico

Marco Island Deep Sea Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is a thrill to many of our island visitors!

The area around Marco boasts some of the best year round sportfishing in the world.  It is surrounded by water with the 10,000 Islands to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west.  Marco Island is located in southwest Florida just 10 miles south of Naples and 85 miles north of Key West.

The shallow waters around Marco and the 10,000 Islands hold sportfish such as Tarpon, Snook, Redfish and Sea Trout. For those of you that prefer the deep waters venture in to the Gulf of Mexico for a catch of Grouper, Snapper, King Mackerel, Little Tuni, shark and Cobia.

BIG Fish, tough fighting fish and great edible fish….they are all here on Marco Island!

Fishing in the Gulf off Marco Island

Many of our guests at Sea Mar Condo look forward to a day excursion of deep sea fishing in the Gulf.  It is a great place to find varied fishing all year round. Charter boats go out each day and many of the island restaurants are waiting to prepare your catch of the day when you get off the boat!

Offshore fishing from Marco Island is quite different from most other places because even when you are 30 miles out you may still be in 60-70 feet of water. This means there is no trolling and waiting hours for a bite as reefs, shipwrecks and hard bottom within reasonable depths make great havens for a variety of fish.

A day offshore fishing is a great family event. The fishing is definitely tougher, the fish are certainly bigger – with grouper 100+ pounds common. Larger king mackerel, snapper, shark, cobia, and grouper in water up to 80 feet deep will challenge even the best fisherman (or woman).

Depending on what time of the year you visit, you might try fishing the scenic mangrove islands of Marco for Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Pompano, Trout, Snapper and many others. While you fish, enjoy watching beautiful birds, manatee and of course dolphins that actually come right up to the boat.

Reefs in the Marco Island Waters

New to our Gulf waters are 36 beautiful reefs funded by BP and some private donors. This should make for some great fishing for all species such as Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, King Mackerel, Goliath Grouper and many other species.

The boat captains will clean your catch and gab it for you as part of their service. Then you take it to one of the restaurants on the island that prepare it for your dinner that night!
