Sea Excursions is a Florida Convention Services company that provides support services to DMC's: (239) 642-6400
Planners of large and small meetings depend on Sea Excursions to handle details for a wide variety of water-related activities. Qualified professional assistance, competitive pricing and seamless customer service has made Sea Excursions the premier water activities provider in Naples and Marco Island. We have the experience to customize the right program for your group’s entertainment.
Backwater or “inland” fishing among the 10,000 Islands of the Florida Everglades provides a great scenic trip as well as great fishing. Fish the backwater mangrove areas for a variety of species, including: Mangrove, Snapper, Trout, Redfish, Jack Cravelle, Sheephead, Snook and, in season, Tarpon. These 22-28 foot center console boats are limited to four passengers.
Fish the back country mangroves and estuaries for Snook, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Tarpon (in season) and other salt water species. The “flats skiffs” have specialized backwater capabilities which allow them to venture into very shallow waters. Fly fishing is available along with live bait, plug and spin fishing. These 17-21-foot flats fishing boats are limited to two passengers.
Fishing the beautiful (and generally calm) Gulf of Mexico waters, these boats go out into the Gulf from 3 to 20 miles as fishing and sea conditions dictate. Reef and wreck fishing will produce a bountiful array of fish: Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, King and Spanish Mackerel, Permit, Barracuda, Shark and, seasonally, Tarpon. These 28-40 foot boats accommodate a maximum of six passengers. Rest room on board.
(Very Limited Availability)
For the ultimate in off-shore fishing experience, board one of our 38-45 foot, sport fishermen with air conditioned salon for an 8 to 20 mile half-day jaunt into the Gulf where Grouper, Snapper, King Fish and other offshore species are plentiful among the reefs and wrecks or sometimes these boats will troll for Barracuda and King Mackerel. Fullday charters travel out 25-40 miles where Jewfish (catch and release only) and Giant Permit often are encountered. Capacity for six passengers. Rest room on board.
With a maximum passenger capacity of 22, this casual approach to fishing generally appeals to the “not-serious-fishing” groups. While some fish, others may sightsee (or read a good book!). This 45-foot vessel offers deep sea fishing up to six miles off-shore. Cruising at 23 knots, it seeks Grouper, Snapper, King Fish, Mackerel and Cobia from the reef and wreck sites off-shore in the Gulf of Mexico.
Sea Excursions is happy to turn your group fishing charters into a competitive event by hosting a spirited, memorable Fishing Tournament, as serious or an “entertaining” as you elect.
Winners and awards are based on your selected “categories”. The most “standard” categories are: Biggest Fish , Most Fish Caught, Most Unusual and Smallest Fish… and for a bit of humor, Best Fish Story.
At the end of the of the day Sea Excursions tallies the results and prepares a tournament summary . Some of our groups have even hired a local comedian to announce the winners and present the prizes at their closing banquet or event. A great team building event!
Fishing tournaments can be held with either Backwater or Offshore charters.
Let us know how many winners you would like and we will help you select a few or several categories. The competiveness and number of prizes are up to you.
Again, it is Sea Excursions providing “FUN ON THE WATER”.
All fishing vessels are USCG inspected with professional, licensed captains. Fishing charters include: bait, tackle, rods and reels, fishing license, and one cooler with ice. We adhere to an environmentally friendly “catch and release” policy. However, if at journey’s end it is requested, cleaning and bagging of catch is available by the ship’s crew. Half and Full-Day trips are available; half-day trips typically depart at 8 AM and 1 PM.
Sailing is an ideal option for the pristine waters and warm breezes of the Gulf of Mexico. We offer an array of sailing options from the spacious 53-foot, 42-passenger catamaran Sweet Liberty to luxurious six passenger sailing yachts (such as the Serenidad shown below). All vessels provide an ideal venue for sunset events events for two or 42 persons. Another favorite option is to enjoy sunset and refreshments on-board then cruise to one of the area’s waterfront restaurants for a leisurely, after-sail respite.
If it’s fun, and on the water…we do it!
About shelling…one of the great attractions of the 10,000 Islands area of the Everglades is the lure of these barrier islands and their unique and abundant shells. The Sweet Liberty is the ideal sailing vessel for easy island access and sun-sational shelling excursions.
Not the America’s Cup but a great deal less work and a lot more exhilarating for the participants, the sailing regatta excites and involves every participant. Its objective is to be fun and effective for groups of all sailing experience levels (including no experience at all!). Teams are assigned to six-passenger sailing yachts aboard which professional captains, all of whom are by nature superb team builders, dedicated to the purpose of demonstrating winning tactics.
Team members are invited to participate in boat handling, sail handling, navigation and tactical management as they compete for the honor of being the winning TEAM (on board and on land!). Boats are handicapped using PHRF (Performance Handling Rating Formula) to achieve a fair competitive environment among the participating teams. Rest rooms on board.
Add a perfect ending to a busy day of meetings and presentations! Relax and amaze at the beauty of the Naples Bay (and the multimillion dollar homes of Port Royal) or sail the 10,000 Islands area around Marco Island and discover the beauty of the coastal Everglades. These luxury ships built by SkipperLiner accommodate up to 149 passengers and feature an upper deck from which to enjoy sunshine and sea breezes and two, climate controlled interior salons.

Truly a new alternative for executive programs, or romantic getaways! Capacity: 6 Passengers.
