Hey, I'm Gordie
I've been fishing these waters since I was a little kid with my dad. Now I'm the one taking people fishing with my first mate, Ripp, that's him right there. Every day on the water is different and that's what I love about it!
Hey, I'm Captain Gordie, I'm Naples, Florida born and raised, and I've been fishing these waters since I could walk.
I'm a 3rd generation charter boat captain in the Naples area. I grew up watching my dad fish and loved that it was something we did together. With his expert teaching from 20 years of charter experience himself, I have Gulf knowledge and access beyond my years and know all the tricks of the trade.
I have a passion for the outdoors and love to have a good time out in God's creation, so what better place to spend my days "on the job" than on the water showing people the BEST time in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico?!
Whether it's in the back country catching snook and redfish with your kids or offshore in the Gulf catching grouper and snapper with your buddies, I want to create the opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime.
I have my Master Captain's license along with my US Coast Guard Medical Certificate and CPR certification. It's always my goal to ensure a fun and safe experience on the water.
