Your fishing adventure awaits!

My name is Captain Bryan Dollar. As a lifelong resident of Southwest Florida, I’m proud to call these waters my home. As a registered USGC Charter Captain serving Sanibel and Captiva Islands, I’m happy to share this region, and all it has to offer with you and your guests!

I offer family and kid friendly charters as well as shelling, sport fishing and private excursions throughout the region. I am a husband and a father of two outstanding kids as well as a US Army veteran. From the Sanibel Lighthouse to the Captiva Fish Houses all the way up to Boca Grand Pass, I look forward to sharing my knowledge and the history of the waters surrounding us!

Please take a look around and don’t hesitate to call or reach out if you have any questions!

My name is Capt. Bryan Dollar. I am a USCG registered Charter Guide and lifetime resident of SW Florida. I was raised in Cape Coral – just off Sanibel & Captiva Islands and have fished these waters since I was a child.

After serving my country in the US Army, I came home to Pine Island, FL and pursued my life long dream of making my boat my office. Since a very young age I could be found on, near or under the water.  I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge for Southwest Florida with you and your guests!
