"MISS HAYDEN" our 29 ft by 10 ft Offshore Hunting Machine! She has been nicknamed,
"The Sea Cadillac" because of her smooth ride even in rough conditions.
"Lil Miss Hayden" is considered a large vessel for our shallow inshore waters at 27 ft, (most bay guides are only using puny and uncomfortable 20-23 ft boats that beat you up if there is any chop to the water).

"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 20 years of experiences as a Captain and a Mate.
"Lil MISS HAYDEN" is our original vessel that made the company famous, she is 27 ft long and 9 ft wide
She was designed to the same standards as U.S. Coast Guard rescue vessels and purpose built by the Pacific Boats company, to be a charter fishing and wildlife tour vessel for Southwest Florida's waters. Designed to be able to fish up to 50 miles Offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, while still of shallow draft enough to fish the shallow waters of the Inshore Bay surrounding Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Saint James City and Pine Island.
She is a 27 foot twin engine HARDTOP SHADE center console vessel, constructed of Naval Grade WELDED ALUMINUM, with over 40 square feet of OVERHEAD SHADE, and COMFORTABLE SOFT PLUSH FOAM PADDED LOUNGE/COUCH SEATING with backrest.
Keep in mind as you search for that perfect charter for your family or group that, most charter vessels in these waters are only 21 foot long with a single engine. Many offer no shade at all and are too small to keep their passengers dry let alone comfortable.
We are fully U.S Coast Guard, NOAA and State of Florida Licensed and Insured and use only the best equipment and techniques,
with a highly experienced crew of USCG Master Captains and qualified Local Born and Raised Expert Native Guides. We have been fishing these waters since we were born, with generations of experience and knowledge behind us.
Our Expert U.S. Coast Guard Certified Master Captains and also Master Fishermen and skilled naturalists and fishing instructors/coaches.
We specialize in taking small groups of people out into the emerald green and shimmering blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, or the into the generally calm and protected waters surrounding Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Pine Island, Saint James City, Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach to show them a great time.
We can customize any trip to suit your groups exact request be it OFFSHORE - DEEP SEA FISHING CHARTERS, INSHORE - BAY FISHING CHARTERS, SANIBEL SHARK FISHING CHARTERS, SANIBEL WILDLIFE TOURS, or LUNCH IN THE ISLANDS.
You can go hunting in the Gulf of Mexico for Delicious Grouper's and feisty fighting Snapper or maybe wrestle with some Sharks, Goliath Grouper, Amberjack, Barracuda, Permit, Tarpon, Cobia, King Mackerel and more as typical catches.
Or we can take your group Inshore into the bay, Inside of the Barrier Islands of Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva, Cayo Costa and into the collection of protected bay's known as Pine Island Sound, where we can fish for tasty Redfish, acrobatic Snook, feisty Sea Trout, tasty Mangrove Snapper, delicious Flounder, Giant Sheepshead, Bull Shark, Blacktip or Hammerhead Shark's, Tarpon, and Goliath Grouper just to name a few.
Many groups like to also spend part of their trip cruising the waters surrounding;
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.
WE LOVE TO TEACH BEGINNERS, and specialize in helping children and enthusiastic adults learn about the environment, fishing and boating in and around the amazing Islands of Southwest Florida.
WE WILL CUSTOMIZE ANY TRIP TO SUIT YOUR GROUP PERFECTLY!
