About Your Guide

Captain Ken is a Southwest Florida native, born and raised. The son of a commercial fisherman, Ken has been on the water fishing the gulf and inshore waters all his life. A winning tournament angler, he has also guided several charity fishing events in the area. As a testament to his skill, he landed a Tarpon over 7 feet long and a mere 20lbs from the record last year! When it comes down to hiring a charter captain, you want more than a local expert with the ability to put you in a position to catch your target species. You also want someone who ensures you and your family have a fun and safe experience. These are top priorities for Captain Ken. You'll catch fish, have some laughs and enjoy everything that makes this area the best fishing destination in Florida. Spend a day on the water with a guide that loves to put his anglers on the fish of a lifetime!

A true memory making experience. My little man loved catching the fish and playing with the bait as well! Captain Ken on our way back spotted a dolphin and slowed down to get the dolphin to play! My son loved the fact there was a dolphin jumping along side the ...Read More
