Captain Patrick

Hi, I'm Captain Patrick, aka "TanMan", and I "LOVE"

everything to do with being on, around or under the

water. In fact, even as a young boy, I was always in the

water or outside enjoying life. 

I am passionate about helping to keep our community

clean, especially our oceans. You will find me stopping

my truck, or boat, to pick up discarded trash...and

don't be surprised if it happens on your charter too!

I enjoy life to the fullest with my wife, Kristina, and our

dog Zeus. My hope is to share my love of this

community with your loved ones too!



I am a licensed USCG Captain and have been an avid boater for over 25 years. I live on the Peace River and navigate the waters of Charlotte Harbor, the Peace River, the Myakka River and Boca Grande on a daily basis. 


I've been scuba diving since 1994...from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast to the Bahamas and more!  You can't keep me out of the water with the fish and the turtles. Being a Dive Master enables me to help with your underwater adventure. I have been on over 300 dives, from shallow water, to deep water, to strong current and no current. Whether you are an experienced diver, new diver or you've never dove before but would like to try it, I will be with you to guide you.
