Tarpon Point Marina is just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico and some of the best cruising and fishing grounds in Florida. Our marina is located in a sheltered deepwater harbour and is safe from storms. Tarpon Point Marina has direct access to the Gulf of Mexico via the Caloosahatchee River.
The Marina

Tarpon Point Marina is located just off the I.C.W. at marker #92. Inside the marina basin we have a depth of 8 to 12 feet that can accommodate most vessels. As you enter the marina the fuel dock is on your port side and sells both gas and diesel. We offer special discounts on fuel to all our tenants with no charge for pump-outs.

We have 175 slips that can accommodate boats up to 75 feet, with special accommodations for boats up to 95 feet. 90% of the wet slips at the docking facility are available for rent to the general public on a "first come, first served" basis.

Fishing Charters
Warm Gulf Waters, rivers and mangrove habitat makes you able to fish all year round. This is one of the few places on earth where you can fish saltwater and fresh water in a single day.
The area is regaled for its tarpon and grouper, large salt water game fish found in spring and summer. Other saltwater catches include shark, amberjack, cobia and much more. Year-round freshwater fishing yields snapper, redfish and trout. Snook are a prize inshore catch, and cobia, spanish mackerel and even tarpon will move inland as the waterways become salty.

If you go out for a trip with your family, sometimes the kids can spot dolphins swimming nearby, while you drop your line.

Here is a list of the fish to be found in our area:
Black drum, Cobia, Grouper, Mackerel, Redfish, Sheep Head, Mangrove Snapper, Tarpon, Trout, Triple Tail and much more.

With our special shallow-water guided tour boats we lead you to the best fishing spots. We are fully equipped with fishing poles, tackle, cool beverages, ice and you can watch our Captain's catch live bait with the net. All you need is a hat and sun block. Enjoy the untouched nature around Cape Coral, drive with us between Mangroves and through the nature canals.

Enjoy a wonderful day on the water with a captain who knows the waters, and at the end of the day he will filet the fish you have caught and prepare it for your dinner.
