Captain Chris ONeill - Tail Chaser Charter Services in Boca Grande


Thank you for visiting my website and giving me the opportunity to serve you. I am a retired (20 year) combat veteran, with extensive experience guiding anglers and operating large amphibious vessels and Hovercraft around the world. My promise to you as the owner and operator of Tail Chaser Charter Services is 100% customer satisfaction.  Look forward to a friendly and attentive captain that enjoys having fun while exploring our amazing local estuaries and targeting SW Florida's best gamefish. 

What to expect

I specialize in private and corporate charter fishing adventures. The majority of my business is private,  client-driven charters. I do not sell spaces on the boat to anyone not in your party, nor do I combine groups. Prior to our trip,  I will recommend what type of fishing is best and then YOU decide how we spend your day on the water. Any vessel representing Tail Chaser Fishing will have outstanding equipment, be clean, mechanically safe and fully insured. Find Capt. Chris ONeill in Boca Grande and Tail Chaser Charter Services in Boca Grande and surrounding territories.
