Meet Captain Zach Timmons

Captain Zach Timmons is the owner operator of First City Fishing Charters, located in St. Augustine, FL.

Zach is a St. Augustine native, and a 4th generation boat captain!

In the early 80's his father started the well-known "Sea Love Deep Sea Fishing" business. Growing up working and captaining for his family business is where Zach started his passion for fishing and dedication to being one of the finest fishing captains in the area here in St. Augustine.

Zach Timmons has spent most of his life on the water. From fishing and sightseeing or just plain cruising, there is much to enjoy here in St. Augustine by way of water. That is why Capt Zach decided that he wanted to share his knowledge of fishing and of St. Augustine, so he started his own charter business First City Fishing Charters.

Capt Zach takes pride in his job and loves seeing guests catch the fish of a lifetime. When he is not out on the water, Zach spends every three days working as a Fire Fighter/EMT for the local city fire department, protecting the local residents and all the people that come to visit this wonderful city of St. Augustine.

"I enjoy every day I get out on the water and teach new visitors everything I know about fishing and about the nation's oldest city. I am all about having a great time and catching someone the fish of their dreams." - Capt Zach

Meet Captain Chris Chester

Captain Chris Chester is now the second Captain with First City Fishing Charters, located in St. Augustine, FL.

Captain Chris has always been on the water. He was born in Arkansas and grew up fishing the freshwater lakes of northeast Arkansas and the Mississippi River. Chris moved to Florida, just outside of St. Augustine, at the age of 10 and discovered his love for saltwater fishing. After high school, Chris decided to move to St. Augustine and began a career as a firefighter. He was fortunate enough to spend his off-days fishing and enjoying this wonderful city. Through the fire department, he met Captain Zach Timmons and they began fishing together.

Soon after, Captain Zach hired Chris as his mate and he quickly fell in love with being a guide. He decided to obtain his Captain's license & start running his own charters. Chris has enjoyed working with Zach, and also the freedom to be able to lead his own charters with people from every walk of life. He takes pleasure in teaching novice anglers and children, and loves taking the time to teach fishing techniques that make fishing trips more successful and exciting.
