Description

Captain Richard Scarabin offers light tackle fishing adventures in the bays and back countries around Apalachicola, Florida. An experienced guide who has been fishing the local waters all his life, Captain Richard is a fourth generation native fisherman who loves to show his guests the treasures of the local waters.

Whether you want to try your hand at hooking an inshore fish or would prefer to simply cruise around the local islands, Captain Richard’s 23 ft Sea Hawk center console boat will keep you comfortable and secure throughout your trip. With a large T-top for shade, high sides for safety and plenty of space for as many as six anglers, this boat is great for exploring the local waters. Built in 2014, it features a range of modern appliances, including Lowrance electronics and a Mercury 4 stroke engine.

Captain Richard specializes in fishing the local flats and bays for species such as Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, and also enjoys traveling further out to target Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, Tripletail, and Sharks. Having guided in these waters for seven years, he knows these waters as good or better than anyone around and will pass on his knowledge not only of the fishing, but also of the local area and wildlife.

Kids are particularly welcome on this family friendly boat, and Captain Richard will always work hard to accommodate your needs, doing everything possible to make it happen. Safety, entertainment and your satisfaction are the top priority, along with catching fish!
