About the Captain

Blake Borgeson
Naples, Florida, United States
Member since August 2016
My family started vacationing in Naples over 20 years ago. My earliest memories of Florida are the boating and fishing trips my dad would always take me on. Nothing was more fun and I could never get enough of it. Flash forward 10 years and we moved to Naples. Throughout high school I would spend my afternoons/weekends on the water exploring new areas and trying to catch all kinds of fish. I went to Eckerd College and received a BS in Marine science. While prepping for grad school I worked for a resort and ran charters for them. It didn't take long before I set grad school aside and decided to start my own charter business, Paradise Coast Charters.

Dr. Stanglemeier,

I’m sorry we did not catch as many fish as you had hoped. The conditions of 2-4ft (occasional 5) close period seas prevented us from getting you on top of wrecks for Amberjack. It was also tough getting far enough offshore for good grouper bottom.

You guys were great customers and a lot of fun to have on board.  Thank you for booking with us.
