Capt Rich


Luck o’ The Irish Fishing Charters got its name from the origin of the owner, himself. Born in Tullamore, Ireland, Captain Rich made his way to the United States as a young man in 2001. It did not take him long to discover that his new home was in Southwest Florida, where he could pursue his deepest passion; fishing. The only thing Capt. Rich enjoys more than pulling in a big red is helping anglers experience the same excitement! He has made a happy life for himself over the last 20 years, with his wife and kids. He takes great pride in how far he has come and loves to pass that same Irish luck on to his passengers.

Capt Kenny

Head Captain

Captain Kenny comes to us seasonally. When he’s not fishing the waters of Fort Myers Beach, you can find him fishing and captaining charters in Alaska! His extensive experience as a fishing captain around the nation makes him a wonderful asset to the team, and full of fun adventures to share. Captain Kenny is a joy to fish with and an instant friend. We think he’s the BEST!





1st Mate

As the oldest son in the family business, Gabe can be seen assisting Capt. Kenny and Capt. Rich on some of their larger charters. He loves catching Red Snapper and shark. When he’s not on the boat, Gabe likes producing his own EDM music (which you can listen to here) and working with technology, especially computers. He loves to travel and explore, and looks forward to seeing where the world takes him after college!



Together, we strived to maintain a successful family business, built on honesty and integrity.

We value having a family-friendly company because we understand from a personal level that there is nothing more important than the ones you cherish. Our promise to everyone who climbs aboard our boats is that you will receive nothing short of 100% from all of the staff here, at Luck o’ The Irish Fishing Charters.

If at any time you feel unsatisfied with your experience we hope that you will take the time to reach out to us so we can assist in making things better.
