Captain Tim

Captain Tim has over 25 years experience as a boat captain and dive instructor, and has fished most of his life. Captain Tim grew up in Tennessee fishing for catfish and bluegill, but once he got a taste of saltwater fishing in Destin, he was hooked!

Captain Tim likes to say: "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and he forgets about eating!"

Captain Tim graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a bachelor's degree in biology, also becoming a PADI Scuba Instructor.

In early 1986 Tim became "Captain Tim" upon earning his USCG 100 Ton Master's License, and has been running boats ever since.

He has fished and dived the beautiful emerald green waters of Destin, since the early '80s. In addition, he has also fished the waters of St. John in the caribbean, Costa Rica, Panama, Puerto Rico, Bahamas and the Atlantic ocean.

Captain Tim enjoys taking both newcomers and experienced anglers alike. Teaching kids to fish and having them catch their first fish is always fun!
