Soon after moving to Naples from Houston in 2008, the captain was spending the majority of his free time fishing and paddling the inshore waters and mangrove trails of Estero Bay. Kayaking provided the perfect way to explore the less traveled waterways and enjoy nature while catching fish that couldn't see lures every day. After exploring the area he quickly realized what an amazing fishery and ecosystem Estero Bay was and what it had to offer. Needless to say, he became hooked! The captain is an avid angler and paddler that would love to guide you through the beautiful area and teach you tactics to become a better fisherman! Join Paddle Naples on a guided tour and let them show you the true beauty of Southwest Florida!
