Biography

Captain Matt has a lifetime on the water with well over 30 years on boats. Growing up in Ohio, he spent a lot of time on freshwater lakes. At a young age, he attended Power Squadron classes with his parents to navigate Lake Erie before GPS and state-of-the-art electronics were mainstream. In 2007, Captain Matt moved to Florida, where he spent much of his time on Florida’s inland waters, focusing on Lake Okeechobee as he competed locally in Largemouth Bass Tournaments. Since then, Captain Matt has owned numerous vessels transiting Gulf waters around Sanibel and Marco Islands and a much heavier presence in the waters of the Palm Beaches and along the East Coast of Florida.

While being a lifelong recreational boater, Captain Matt took professional schooling at Chapman School Of Seamanship in Stuart, FL, to obtain his Merchant Mariner Credential, aka captain license. He is trained in First Aid/CPR/AED and volunteers his spare time with the Palm Beach County Sherriff Volunteer Marine Unit. Captain Matt holds a dual-endorsed USCG-issued Master Inland 50T/25T Near Coastal License with towing assistance and is actively enrolled in the Maritime Consortium, a randomized durg testing organization.

Captain Matt knows how to have a great time on the water while emphasizing safety. He has maintained a flawless boating record with zero recorded incidents at sea. As such, Captain Matt wants all passengers or clients to also focus on safety while having a fantastic and enjoyable time on the water.
