Everything about this charter surpassed my expectations! The boat was big, clean and comfortable. Captain Buddy provided a cooler so all we had to bring was our food and drinks. He was super informative and fun, we did some shelling and hung out on a local island Keewaydin. Totally chill, would 100% recommend Native Sun to anyone looking for a great day on the water.

We were debating renting a boat until we came across Buddy. The experience couldn’t have gone much better. We had a great trip out to keewaydin, Listened to some good music, and got a chance to hang out with friends. Buddy was an excellent captain. We will definitely be back.

Captain Buddy took us out to Keewaydin Island for the day and we had a BLAST!! Captain Buddy was super responsive and accommodating. The boat was spotless, Captain Buddy provided chairs for the beach, and a cooler and ice for our drinks, played music of our choice and was a great conversationalist. We got to see some dolphins and even jumped off the top deck of the boat! We will definitely use Native Sun Charters again. Thank you Captain Buddy!!

This is my first time leaving a Google review for any business! My family and I are staying in Marco Island for our spring break vacation. We LOVE Captain Buddy so much that we booked him again today. The first time was on Wednesday and the second time on Friday. We went to two different islands. Seriously, you guys, look no further if you want a relaxing enjoyable trip with an amazing Captain. On Wednesday, we traveled out of Naples and visited Keewaydin Island. While leaving the island, Captain Buddy spotted the ice cream boat. My daughter was ecstatic to have ice cream :-) Captain Buddy has a cooler filled with ice and provides water. BYOB and bring snacks! In addition, Native Sun Charters provides beach chairs, noodles (we have 6.5 year old daughter) and he allowed our daughter to keep a shell bag (Thank you so much)! On our second voyage, we traveled out of Goodland. I was intrigued to see the Dome House on Cape Romano. Captain Buddy is very professional 100%! He took the time to map out the course the day before(Thursday) and informed us that “it will be better if we met at Goodland instead of Naples in order not to waste time traveling from one point to the other. You will spend more time at the Island playing/lounging”. We saw a horseshoe crab and plenty of dolphins. Native Sun Charters also does sunset tours (next time we will book a sunset tour). Captain Buddy is very accommodating. Give him a day or two advance notice so he can properly plan your trip and get all the logistics sorted. You will not be disappointed, and picking Native Sun Charters will be the highlight of your visit
