Born and raised by two avid fisherman in south Florida, Kurt Kintz has been around the water his whole life.

His career in the marine industry gave him the ability to travel throughout the states and also fish with some of the best captains and fishermen known in their industries today.

In the late 80s, Kurt started  fishing the Everglades National Park and 10,000 Island areas. Fishing these areas soon became his passion and focus - logging countless hours in one of the most diverse fisheries in Florida.

Starting his guide business in 2012 has enabled Kurt to utilize and share his 30 plus years of experience and passion with others.

Captain Kurt is a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain, member of the Florida Guides Association, and a supporter of National Association of charter boat operators.
