Take to the Water With Captain Ed's Charter Boats
Widely considered the best charter service in Southwest Florida, Captain Ed’s has been a Bonita Bay tradition since 1992. Offering sunset cruises, dolphin tours, fishing charters and much more, Captain Ed’s is the ideal way to hit the water!
Having Your Boat Launched
Boats are launched between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm daily. We utilize an online software product called BoatCloud to schedule launches. When your boat arrives for storage, you will receive an email link to join BoatCloud. To save time at the dock, you can request fuel and ice on the Boat Cloud, as well as live shrimp (during season from October through April). Alternatively, you can call the Ships Store at
239-495-3222 one hour in advance to have your
boat launched (subject to available launch times).
Using the Marina After Hours
Request a launch time through BoatCloud or call the Ships Store at 239-495-3222 before 2:00 p.m. Your boat will be tied to the floating dock for your use.
Use BoatCloud and request the last available time; then write a note using after hours. Alternatively, you can call the Ships Store by 2:00 pm. Tie your boat to the floating dock; Marina staff will pull your boat in the morning.
For Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Day please alert the Ships Store Clerk the day ahead if you would like to have your boat available.
Purchases & Payments
Boaters are encouraged to use their Marina account for Marina Purchases. Guests may pay with cash, Visa, or MasterCard.
There is a catalog program for boaters to order special items. If ordered before 11:00 a.m. most items will be delivered the same day. Catalogs are kept at the Ships Store.
The length of the boat is determined by measuring the distance from the back of the engine or platform to the front of the anchor or pulpit. Maximum draft at the Marina is 36” (per our permitting agreement).
Storage is billed on the 25th day of the month for the upcoming month of storage.
The Marina offers discounted storage for up to 4 months annually when your boat is not being stored at the marina. Click the link below for storage rates or call Tibe Larson at 239-495-3222 for more information and availability.
There are several work racks for boaters’ use, and can be used for washing, waxing, and repairs to the vessels. Racks are available on a first-come first- served basis. As a courtesy to other boaters, during the busy season please limit the time for washing of boats to ½ hour. All vessels must be out of the water to be washed.
For repairs required on vessels, there are several independent, mobile mechanics available for assistance, if needed. If a vessel is under warranty, dealers are permitted to perform warranty work here, as well. More information is available at the Ships Store.

When there is a Hurricane Watch issued the marina may choose to bring some or all of the boats moored outside into dry dock for the storm. Boats who are affected will be billed a “hurricane haul out” fee. If you are concerned about a storm you can check the resident’s web site at www.bonitabaymarina.net, call the marina, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
