IGUANA HUNT CHARTERS🦎 A UNIQUE AND FUN HUNTING ADVENTURE. ● Max 3 persons per boat! However, if more than 3 we can accommodate a 2nd or 3rd boat for your group. Ask Captain Experiences for more details. Green Iguanas are not native to Florida and are considered invasive species due to their impacts to native wildlife. The Green Iguana is native to South & Central America, Mexico, and some islands of the Caribbean but, once again, because of the popularity of the iguana in the pet trade, they have become invasive in South Florida, Hawaii, Texas, and Puerto Rico. Iguanas are a big problem in Florida as they cause damage to commercial and residential landscape vegetation. Most property owners consider these reptiles as a nuisance. These animals are mostly attracted to plants with flowers, foliage, or any kind of vegetables, and they destroy them. HOW THEY GOT HERE Florida's first green Iguanas likely hitched a ride on Cuban cargo ships transporting goods to Florida. Soon after their arrival, the herbivorous lizards reproduced rapidly and established themselves throughout South and Central Florida. CAN YOU EAT AND WHAT DOES IGUANA TASTE LIKE Iguanas are referred to as the "chicken of the trees," by iguana eaters, because they are said to taste " like chicken ". Many people enjoy the meat from iguanas because of the high levels of protein it provides. In fact, iguana is a pretty lean meat and contains more protein than chicken. It's a common delicacy in Mexico, Central and South America — and in trendy U.S. restaurants that cater to anyone craving a lizard entree. Iguana gourmets in the U.S. are sometimes immigrants from other countries looking for a taste of home. WHY DO PEOPLE HUNT IGUANAS They are invasive and they cause damage to seawalls, sidewalks, landscape foliage and can dig lengthy tunnels causing millions in damages to residents and businesses. Also, they prey on the vulnerbale native Burrowing owls by eating their eggs and drive them out of their homes. Non-native iguanas are multiplying so rapidly in South Florida that a state wildlife agency is now encouraging people to kill them. Book your ultimate hunt adventure! Enjoy and have fun while helping to remove South Florida invasive species. Read More

About Iguanas

Iguanas have become a prominent invasive species in Florida, posing ecological and environmental challenges due to their prolific population growth and adaptability to the subtropical climate. The primary culprit behind the invasion is the green iguana (Iguana iguana), native to Central and South America. Introduced to Florida through the pet trade, these reptiles have thrived in the state's warm and humid conditions, creating a breeding ground for their rapid expansion.

One key factor contributing to the invasive success of iguanas is their ability to reproduce quickly. Female green iguanas can lay dozens of eggs in a single nesting season, and their eggs have high survival rates. This prolific reproductive capacity has led to explosive population growth, making it challenging to control their numbers effectively.

Moreover, the green iguana is a highly adaptable species that has successfully established itself in various habitats, ranging from urban areas to natural ecosystems. These reptiles are opportunistic feeders, consuming a wide array of vegetation, including ornamental plants and crops. Their voracious appetite not only poses a threat to local flora but can also impact native species by competing for resources and altering ecosystems.

Efforts to manage the iguana population in Florida involve a combination of trapping, removal, and public awareness campaigns. However, the challenge persists due to the species' resilience and the difficulty in implementing comprehensive control measures. The invasion of iguanas in Florida serves as a cautionary tale about the unintended consequences of introducing exotic species to new environments and underscores the importance of responsible pet ownership and trade regulations.

Is It Legal To Hunt Iguanas In Florida?

Yes, it's legal to hunt iguanas in Florida due to their impact on the local ecosystem and concerns about damage to vegetation, infrastructure, and potential competition with native species, there are regulations in place to manage their population.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) allows hunters to humanely kill green iguanas year-round and without a permit or hunting license on 32 public lands in south Florida.

What Do You Typically Use To Hunt Iguanas?

Our guides typically utilize air rifles to hunt green iguanas.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Justin was awesome. Caught 9 different fish species with him during our fishing part of the trip. He knew exactly where to cast,what to cast, and how to work the fishing pole. The hunt part was amazing as well. Got 12 Iguanas, one being around 41 inches. Justin has the best eyes when it comes to spotting them. He’d point one out while going full speed in the boat. it would take us 10-15 second to spot it. If you want to do an iguana hunt in the Fort Lauderdale area, book Justin.

    We had an awesome time with Carlos. He did a great job with the safety briefing and we had our first iguana on the boat in less than 15 minutes. Carlos helped us spot a big iguana ina tree at the end of our trip and hung over the end of the boat in deep trees and cover to retrieve it.
