Captain Kathe

& First-Mate Pup-Pup Charters

Captain KatheCaptain Kathe is a fourth generation Cortezian. What this means to you as a visitor to our beautiful area is you're in the hands of a fun, storytelling, real to the bones fisherman. She is dead-honest, funny, and full of knowledge of the local waterways. She's fished with her dad on their commercial fishing vessel, the Ms. Karin. The net bans cost them their family business, but Capt. Kathe has remained working on the sea, raising her own family the way her father raised her. Captain Kathe can personalize a tour from a casual picnic tour to hunting down as many sea creatures as possible. Often manatees are very elusive, but throughout season, Captain Kathe calls on her many Cortez and fishing friends to do a "manatee watch" so she can show you the beauty and wonder of these amazing creatures. She can also customize fishing tours or take you house hunting in a more fascinating way -- the waterfront view!!

Pup-Pup is the first mate. He's also known as a Cocker Spaniel. A familiar sight on the docks, Pup-Pup's beautiful blond locks add to his star stature. He's also a really good boy. Pup-pup is a water-loving sea dog who is fearless around crabs and children. In fact, he loves both equally.
