Captain Krista is a St. George Island native and 5th generation fisherman, specializing in bay and gulf fishing charters around St. George Island, the Gulf of Mexico and the Apalachicola Bay.
From advanced anglers, novices and even young children, Captain Krista customizes each charter to ensure her clients' experience is one to remember!
This enthusiastic guide enjoys taking the time to teach the beginner fishermen how to feel for the bite just as much as she enjoys being the dedicated compliment to her more experienced clients.
Captain Krista's unique assets to this fishing fraternity have established a list of repeat clientele that she hopes you will soon be a part of. Her goal is to share her knowledge and send you home with new skills and expertise of this lifetime sport.
Born to a family who has fished these local waters since the late 1800's, Captain Krista gets her passion honestly. Her outdoorsman mother can climb a tree, shoot a gun and sling an arrow better than most men, proving that traditional gender roles don't apply in this family. Besides, how many Great-Grandmothers are hailed by Safari Club International (SCI) as the sharp-shooting "South African Huntress of the Year" -- several years in a row? Captain Krista "gets it honest".
Having spent most of her childhood on a dock or in a boat, this angler is no stranger to her Creek Indian heritage of living off the land. The spirit of fishing and hunting are part of Krista's genetic history. From birth, her family instilled the importance of conservation and protection of our natural resources.
Your time with this fun guide will leave you with more knowledge than you arrived, as she loves to share the area's uncommon history and tell stories of growing up in this one of a kind community.
Welcome to the Island Charter's team,
In 2018, Captain Luis packed his suitcase with plans to visit the island for a couple of weeks, but even Hurricane Michael couldn't run him off! Luis permanently extended his stay, and is now a full time island resident.
Shortly after his arrival, Luis fulfilled his dream of becoming a licensed Captain, and made his traditional post at the helm "official". Our new resident is already becoming a fast favorite with clients, brightening everyone's day with his happy smile and contagious laugh.
Captain Luis grew up in Miami with his Cuban father and Nicaraguan mother, so he is also bilingual if Spanish is your language of choice.
