Captain Scott has been fishing his entire life. For years, friends and family encouraged him to become a guide, so guiding and becoming a captain was something he contemplated for years and years, At 33 years old he finally took the leap and started his own business guiding, doing all sorts of various tours. He's lived here in South West Florida for 30 years and knows the area very well, and he'll go out of his way to ensure that his clients' needs are taken care of. Captain Scott puts the extra effort every day in ensuring his boat and equipment are well maintained and remain clean and safe for his customers. The captain is personable and enjoys chatting with his guests. He appreciates the time you take to consider his charter and invites you to book a trip and join him on the water.
