meet Captain Gary



Captain Gary is a Florida native, originally from St. Petersburg, who enjoys sharing his knowledge of the rivers, their history, and abundant wildlife. He welcomes you aboard the River Tale to explore the pristine waters of the Weeki Wachee River and the natural beauty of the Mud River.


As a seasoned angler, Capt. Gary has been fishing and exploring Florida's nature coast for the last 16 years. His love of the water and its surrounding wildlife drove him to obtain his U.S.C.G. Issued captain's license in 2012. Two years later, he completed his Master's Upgrade, which allows him to captain a vessel up to 25 tons.
