When planning time on the water, your captain is one of the most significant factors in your experience. Captains must know the water, surroundings, ecosystem, and wildlife. In addition, they must prioritize safety, communicate effectively, and have the ability to entertain guests. 

The captains here at Peace River Charters fit the bill. Here, you’ll find seasoned captains who are as knowledgeable as they are fun and will guarantee you’ll walk away with memories to last! Read on to learn more about the perks of touring with a Peace River Charter captain.

Experience Is Essential 

SImply put, our captains have “time on the water.”

Our professional captains have been working in the tourism industry for years! They’ve received the necessary training and have invaluable, lifelong boating skills. You can book your trip knowing your captain has gained many hours of experience navigating the Peace River. 

Knowledgeable Locals 

Our captains are either born and raised in the region or have lived here for more than 20 years! Our own “Mangrove Mike” grew up in Port Charlotte, bringing the team excellent local knowledge and passion for boating and fishing. In addition to leading tours on the river, Captain John Casady competes in fishing tournaments and is known for sharing his stories and expert knowledge with his guests. 

Unbeatable Personalities 

Don’t expect a quiet captain from any of our crew! Our captains are known to have excellent communication and social skills. They’re confident, fun, and a master at managing a trip while filling you with fun facts about the river or a fishing story. Just ask Captain John Socha. He’s known for his incredible sense of humor and storytelling abilities. 

Safety First

They will review the trip plan and go over usage of all safety equipment and first aid.
