We at the Bokeelia Tarpon Inn have always understood that one of the greatest attractions for the fisherman is the setting. The opportunity to lose oneself in the quiet beauty of nature is surely one of the sport's greatest appeals.
The Inn has a 300-foot fishing pier which is free to our guests 24 hours a day, with bait and tackle available.. It’s also one of the best spots to watch the sunset in the evening.
You can enjoy a day on the water with ease with our own boat ramp and docks: Trailer your boat or sail it into our docks, be assured we will take care of you. Our sheltered boat docks, fitted with lifts, can accommodate boats to 24 feet. Our harbor dock, fitted with water and power, can accommodate vessels to 45 feet.
Should you choose to rent a boat we are right around the corner from Four Winds Marina, or we have many friends who are professional fishing guides who will be happy to take you for a fantastic day on the water.
Pine Island Sound, Boca Grande Pass, and the Gulf of Mexico can be reached by boat in 15 minutes or less. The fishing opportunities are almost unlimited. Deep-water fish for grouper, tarpon or shark or work the waters of Charlotte Harbor and Pine Island Sound for redfish, snook, ladyfish, trout, snapper, and more. Try your hand at saltwater fly-fishing either on the flats, or from the shore.
