Our Crew    239-248-5473

Carole Ann II is one of thelargest charter boats on Marco Island she is also one of the few boats that runs with a Captain and an expert 1st Mate to help during your trip.

Captain Scott Ray was born in Boston, Mass. His father worked for Evinrude and Johnson outboards making it possible for the family to be outfitted with the newest fishing boats and equipment.  They spent their time on the beautiful New England waters where Scott learned fishing skills from his father. 

The Ray family decided to move toMarco Island in 1980. With his time boating up North, Scott was able to land a job at the beach as a lifeguard and teaching sailing.  Needing more adventure and time on the sea, he sailed to St Croix USVI where he learned more about deep sea fishing and gained even more boating experience. 

With his expanded knowledge, he acquired his first 50-Ton Captains license.  After years in the Caribbean, he began working as Captain aboard off shore tugboats throughout the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico where he earned his Merchant Marine License 1600 ton upon all oceans.

Our 1st mate Jeff Steffen hails from Door County, Wisconsin.  Jeff is a retired Elementary School Principle with many years experience working with children and families. With over 30 years of fishing knowledge he acquired his 50 ton Masters Captains License. Jeff has been an exceptional mate in Marco Island for the last 7 years. His fishing expertise and sense of humor is a great asset to help you with baiting and hooks, removing caught fish and bringing in the big ones !
