Get the friends and family together and join Captain Chris Fanelli and go chase some amazing game fish in Punta Gorda, Florida.  Airborne Outdoors is owned and operated by Capt. Chris Fanelli and offers inshore and nearshore fishing charters and cruises. All ages are welcome aboard for a wonderful day on the water.  In these pristine waters you can expect a large variety of fish.  Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sharks, and many other species.  All fishing trips are private trips.  Do you want to go fly fishing? 'Deep Sea' fishing or offshore fishing?  The trips can be custom tailored to fit your needs.

From the dock, you will head out into the beautiful Charlotte Harbor. There you can target anything from Snook to Grouper. Trips with Capt. Chris will see you fishing around mangrove islands, sand flats, and artificial reefs. These waters are teeming with fish, but that’s not all. You’re likely to come across some dolphins and manatees, so bring a camera!

Airborne Outdoors operates out of several locations.  You have the option to meet Captain Chris in Pine island, Englewood, Placida, Boca Grande, Captiva or Sanibel too.  He can accommodate anglers of any skill set and will gladly help make your day memorable.

Your vessel for the day is a 24’ Lake and Bay center console. With the capacity of up to six anglers, she is a perfect choice for families with kids. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine and features all the modern amenities you need for a successful day on the water such as Humminbird electronics, Powerpoles, a Kysek cooler, live well, wireless trolling motor and stores a range of fishing equipment at your disposal for a professional and enjoyable fishing experience.

On the morning of your trip, all required fishing gear will be ready onboard, along with water and ice. You should bring whatever you would want to eat and drink based on the length of your trip.  Always make sure to bring a camera, sunglasses, hat, and sunscreen.

However you want to spend your day on the water in the Punta Gorda area, Capt. Chris will have a trip to suit your needs. Choose between fishing, watching dolphins play, taking in a sunset by boat or collecting shells on the local islands.
