First Responder Fishing Charters

For those at the frontlines of Hurricane Ian

In the wake of Hurricane Ian, first responders worked tirelessly to save lives and endured a great deal of physical and mental stress. We believe there's no better way to THANK YOU than with a day on the water.

If you are an actively-employed first responder in Lee, Collier, or Charlotte County, we invite you to enjoy a day of world-class fishing with a licensed and insured fishing guide who also operates out of Lee, Collier, or Charlotte County. The charter is no cost to you.

Complete the form below and a CFCW team member will contact you shortly to coordinate your trip. If you have questions, please contact Cheryl at [email protected].

This initiative is made possible by CFCW’s Emergency Disaster Relief Fund. The relief fund is used to hire impacted fishing guides and charter captains for services that benefit SWFL’s healing and recovery.

Thank you to all of our participating first responders!

Thank you for your efforts after Hurricane Ian and your participation in helping our local guide community. This program is now closed and guides are getting additional assistance through our Guide Grant Program.

There’s still a long road to recovery for our tourism industry that many of our guides depend on. You can still support local guides by booking directly with any of the many, registered captains in our area!
