"MISS HAYDEN" is the name of our 29 ft long by 10 ft wide HARDTOP SHADE fishing vessel. She was custom designed by Captain Frank specifically for Offshore Fishing the Deep Sea waters of Southwest Florida and draws on his 25 years of experiences as a Captain and a Mate.
"The Iron Maiden" is 23 ft long and 9'4" ft wide, designed to fish the very shallow and (less fished) hard to access areas of our Inshore Bay.
She was designed to the same flotation standards as U.S. Coast Guard rescue vessels and purpose built by the One Three Boats, to be a charter fishing and wildlife tour vessel for Southwest Florida's waters.
Her shallow draft designed enables her to fish the shallow waters of the many bays surrounding Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Saint James City and Pine Island.
We are fully U.S Coast Guard, NOAA and State of Florida Licensed and Insured and use only the best equipment and techniques,

Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, North Captiva Island, Pine Island, Saint James City, Fort Myers or Fort Myers Beach, on "WILDLIFE TOUR". Wildlife Touring means we search out playful Dolphin, Gentle Manatee and Sea Turtles along with a variety of interesting Sea Birds, and other Ocean Creatures.
Keep In Mind
Most vessels offering "Offshore or Deep Sea Fishing Charters" in Cape Coral, Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Saint James City and Pine Island Sound waters are not Federally licensed and legally Permitted to fish past 9 miles offshore.
This means that when they take your group Offshore Fishing they are typically breaking various Federal and State laws.
"MISS HAYDEN" is Federally licensed to fish both Offshore in Federal waters, while still retaining the ability to fish State of Florida waters, i.e. the shallow Inshore / Bay Fishing waters near land.
