Day Dreamer Fishing Charters

I am a Naples native and been fishing since I could hold a rod, driving boats with a booster seat soon after. I have always dreamt of being able to share my passions more and no matter your passion, I want to make dreams come true whatever they may be on the water preferred, but in general, I want to give you the chance to pursue what you want and dream of experiencing. Even off the water call, I am willing to help you live the dream and I am willing to do so, just ask!

As a kid, I grew up on the boat and frequently excelled limitations in or out of the water and I never have given up, passed up, opportunities to land a big fish/sharks or a chance to excel in anything if given the opportunity. Try, call me, let me excel expectations or dreams.

Fishing was the one part of my life I was not held back in and my dad let me fight big fish as I never lost the rod or didn’t take wisdom from the great fishermen that helped me along the way. Was held back in other parts of life and big fish from a young age with a will to not believe I could not land the big fish, or do anything to that matter.

To prove that their belief was wrong and that barrier needed to be broken I always would land fish over my what others thought were possible and did this in and out of the water. So, I refused to give up rod’s landed sharks like this, at around 5 years old (tripletail).

I was in a bad spot, and amazed at the knowledge of the original daydreamer Dan Haley, that I called and found out was retiring and about to let this go, I wanted it to go on let the dream live on and took the chance to make my dream come true knowing I am overly capable to exceed other’s dreams expectations during the waking hours.

I Chose, to call my boat “Wet Dreams” as some may get too excited and the water’s wet, jump in, book a trip!! (239-370-5446) share my knowledge and make both your’s and my dreams come true!! This is my goal no matter what dreams you want to come true while in Naples! Contact me, always willing to help whether it helps me or not I love to support the local community and direct people to towards where they can enjoy themselves here and live life, not dream of what could be, but experience what they should be, living life to it’s fullest.

Come, take a ride with me, let’s catch some fish no bull! (unless you like them like me (sharks). If not, awesome they are more of a worry in the water if you perceive them as such. On the boat, sharks, are easier for me than any catfish and I like handling them. In the water, diving I will keep you safe as I possibly can and have done this throughout life on a surfboard stranded drifting with a 20+ ft great white.

Don’t think of me as just an ordinary captain, I am talented and I have multiple interests. A world traveler that is confident enough to go anywhere across the world anywhere and thrive meeting friends along the way. I can speak to people no matter the language or any potential social limitations, labeled deficits or even English knowledge. My real knowledge derives from life, and the main goal to claim I lived life before it’s too late. Formal education, I have a BA in Psychology, UNF. Then, degrees ranging in the universal language known as “body language”.
