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.

We went out with Blake on Saturday for a morning session.  Captain Blake was awesome.  He is really nice and loves fishing.  His boat was well equipped and very clean.  There were 3 of us fishing and he make it super easy and fun.  We will use Captain Blake and Paradise Coast Charters on our next trip in late December.  I hold highly recommend him and will to my friends and family.
