I am a Florida born, U.S. Coast Guard Licensed (#USA000435030), and Insured captain. Since arriving in Manatee County Florida in 1985, I have been fishing the waters of Anna Maria IslandBradentonSarasota BayTampa Bay, and the surrounding areas. Running Fishing Guide & Charter Services to deliver customer purchased boats anywhere desired, as well as, providing a variety of pleasure boat cruises. The fishing charters are tailored to accommodate small groups or large corporate events. And might entail several boats to fit your needs. Personally, I love introducing children to inshore fishing; I encourage you to bring your children, I would enjoy to have them aboard.

After a day on the water, you’ll understand why I love fishing and guiding in Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, and Sarasota waters.~ Captain. Nate
