About Your Guide

Certified Damn Good Guide
25 Years of Experience

Captain Rich was born in Tullamore, Ireland in 1979, but did not make his way to the States until 2001. It did not take him long to discover that his new home was in Southwest Florida, where he could pursue his deepest passion—fishing! The only thing Captain Rich enjoys more than pulling in a big Red is helping his clients experience the same excitement! He has made quite the life for himself over the last 20 years, with a beautiful home and family to show for it. He takes great pride in how far he has come and loves to pass that same Irish luck on to his passengers.

Our skipper was awesome! I am terrible with names but I believe it was Captain Kenny. He was great with the kids and we caught our dinner with leftovers to spare. We will definitely be back next year
