From the Captain

Hi. I'm Captain Brad. I've been fishing, diving, and exploring Keys waters my whole life. I started Off the Rock Charters in 2006 as a way to share those passions with others – it's been an adventure ever since. I love this job and I'm immensely grateful to be a part of so many people's fishing memories year after year. I'm looking forward to welcoming you on board – see you at the dock!

Captain Brad Bio

Capt. Brad Nowicki

Captain Brad is a natural “Conch” meaning he was born and raised in the keys. With saltwater running through his veins from an early age, Brad has accumulated more hours on and under the sea already than most veteran retired guides ever achieve.

Gifted with an outgoing and patient personality, Captain Brad is the complete Light Tackle guide. Possessing a vast knowledge of flats to offshore fishing Captain Brad  offers his clients a variety of options when fishing together. Captain Brad is equally happy to head offshore in the Atlantic to “blue water” in pursuit of the fabled sport fish of the Gulf Stream such as Marlin, Sailfish and Tuna, or to the natural reef home of Snapper and Grouper, Barracuda, and the apex predator shark. The Gulf of Mexico has been Captain Brad’s playground since childhood and few guides are as familiar with the hundreds of remote shipwrecks via his hours spent diving them. The Gulf wrecks provide world class fishing for the elusive Permit, Cobia, and super aggressive Bull Shark. Captain Brad’s shallow water talents are equally impressive, specializing in Tarpon, Sea Trout, Redfish, Bonefish and Permit fishing.

Capt. Brad has been featured on multiple fishing television programs, including the Discovery Channel’s #1 hit show “River Monsters” season 8, episode 3 and numerous appearances on George Poveromo’s World of Saltwater Fishing. From the helm of his immaculate 34′ Yellowfin “Off the Rock” Captain Brad provides his anglers with state-of-the-art fishing equipment. Plus, with leading edge technology at his fingers tip’s and all the creature comforts anglers demand, Captain Brad is the perfect choice in Key West. Captain Brad takes immense pride in offering his guests the ultimate fishing experience in Key West.
