Meet our captains:
USCG Licensed and Insured Captain Justin Goodlett was born in South Florida and raised on the Back Country and Gulf Coast of Central Florida.
His passion started small, with offshore grouper fishing and 100-mile daily runs out of Crystal River, FL. This burgeoning passion for high-octane angling ushered in a decade+ of Blue Water Tournament Fishing along the Atlantic Coast of South Florida, The Bahamas, and the Florida Keys. Captain Justin then brought his extensive tournament experience back to his Gulf Coast roots, where he founded the [very successful] Marion County Firefighter Benevolence Fund Saltwater Classic Charity Tournament, which is held yearly in the late summer/early fall.
In 2014, Captain Justin took a leap of faith with his career as a firefighter/paramedic & certified black-water rescue diver, and moved to South Florida. He has never looked back. In the years since, he has gained a wealth of experience in Floridian and Bahamian waters; he later parlayed his expertise into traveler services: captaining Florida-Bahamas sea crossings, sport-fishing excursions, and other day-long or multi-day boat outings.
USCG Licensed and Insured Captain Steve Beare is a native Floridian, born and raised in South Florida. He was fortunate to grow up in a fishing family, which afforded him a wealth of opportunities (and diversion) throughout his childhood. Over the years, he learned the ins-and-outs of inshore and offshore waters throughout the East Coast of Florida, the Florida Keys, the Dry Tortugas, and the Bahamas.
At just 21, Captain Steve obtained his USCG Captains License – a likely move, considering his family full of renowned captains. And yet, he took a diverging path and joined the ranks of Florida law enforcement, which granted significant training and skills in fields as varied as emergency first aid and tactical extraction.
Over his 20-year law enforcement career, Captain Steve pursued his other passion: fishing! Over the years, he worked part-time in the industry, including both recreational and commercial fishing, as well as in Tournament Fishing for kingfish, wahoo and sailfish. In 2007, Captain Steve capitalized on his expertise and experience, and founded a fishing charter to guide travelers and anglers throughout the Bahamas. His fishing adventures focus not only on how many fish you catch, but on the experience you have along the way.
