What is a Head Boat?

Let us give you a “Heads Up” with PURE NAPLES

When we answer the phone at Pure Naples and the person on the other end of the line asks about fishing, we quote them a few of options that they can choose from. There is the Fishing Charter, The Back Bay, Coastal or Deep Sea. As the conversation goes on, our staff will explain that these options are on either a ‘private charter basis’ or a ‘head boat’ – this invariably is followed by – What is a ‘head boat’? To which the answer is a group of people on board all paying for themselves as opposed to a private group with a single payer.

At Pure Naples we have the M/V LADY BRETT (max 20 anglers) for deep sea fishing and the M/V NAPLES EXPLORER (max 18 anglers) for Back Bay or near Coastal for HEAD BOAT FISHING

Both boats are USCG CERTIFIED complete with Captain and deckhand, fishing license for all on-board, top of the line fishing gear and tackle, bait to suit the season, fish finding electrical system and a ‘marine head’.

Come and join us for a fishing experience on the waters of Naples Bay and the Gulf of Mexico – our crew will fillet, bag and ice your catch or you can take your catch to the PINCHERS or RIVER WALK restaurants and have them cook it for you right there at TIN CITY
