About Your Guide

Captain Tyler

Independent Guide
Captain Tyler was born and raised in South Florida into a fishing family. From an early age Captain Tyler was on the water fishing, from the fresh waters of the Everglades to offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. With years of experience honing his skills and with a love of wild things and distant places Captain Tyler made the decision early on to spend his professional life on the water.

Captain Tyler began his professional journey by commercial fishing. Commercial
fishermen make exception fishing guides as commercial fishing requires the ability to catch fish every day under every conceivable weather and water condition year-round. Commercial fishermen are the most versatile anglers on the planet and must command mastery of multiple skills for success. A perfect foundation for guiding.

Captain Tyler is equally at home fishing well offshore however his true passion is shallow-water light tackle angling. Making the move to the backcountry was a stellar transition earmarked by a steady stream of banner days and outstanding catches. Captain Tyler’s experience and vast knowledge of our immense backcountry waters and fishery aside, Captain Tyler is a “people person” blessed with an easy-going, jovial, personality. Captain Tyler enjoys aggressively pursuing the most elusive sport fish and predator species of our remote and distant waters but with a soft spot for family fishing adventures that result in “memories of a lifetime”. Few guides equal Captain Tyler’s enthusiastic energy and work ethic while keeping his anglers the number one priority.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
