Captain James Simcic

Captain James Simcic

Spearcrazy is owned and operated by Captain James Simcic of Marathon, Florida.

As an original “Conch”, Captain James is a Marathon native who was practically born in the ocean. His family has worked on the waters around Marathon for three generations.

Captain James’ life was destined to be lived on the water from an early age. As the son of two ocean lovers, James’ life began in the water at a young age surrounded by the tell-tale signs of a life lived off the sea. James’ father is a second generation Fisherman and showed his son the ropes at an early age, initiating James into heavy situations within the water soon after young James had learned to walk.

As Captain James grew older, his passion for the ocean, fishing and everyday waterman activities surged. With this passion came new avenues that James searched to help him express himself more deeply within the ocean.

At the age of eight Captain James shot his first fish, sparking a lifelong passion for the ocean and the exhilarating sports of fishing, freediving and spearfishing.

Captain James provides custom fishing charters with specialization in offshore sportsfishing, inshore spearfishing and fishing and pelagic spearfishing encounters.
