Ryan Pratt - Owner/Captain
The first time I visited the Treasure Coast I fell in love with its water. 15 years ago, I became a captain and have continued to help others who love the water continue to enjoy their dream. For almost four years now, I have been the franchise owner of Sea Tow Treasure Coast, based in Rio.

Alek Loudakis - Captain
I moved from Texas to Stuart, Florida at the age of nine and started fishing with my father soon after. I worked as a mate abroad local party and charter boats in high school and quickly developed a profound love for the ocean.I became an avid free diver, capable of diving up to 100 feet on a single breath of air. I eventually became a captain/mate and worked in Western Samoa, where I helped to set the national all tackle IGFA record for blue marlin twice.

Art Neps - Captain
I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida and have always loved being on the water. I have been fishing and diving since I was a kid and eventually realized that being a captain was what I wanted to do. It is very rare that I am away from the water, but if I am, I'm most likely at the shooting range.
