Meet our captains

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 ’80s, 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 Captain 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.

Captain 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.” – Captain Zach

Captain Rob Nevins has been fishing Florida’s inshore and offshore waters for over 25 years. He truly enjoys sharing his knowledge of the tidal ecosystem and life in the Atlantic Ocean. Returning guests are his favorite part of charter fishing. He hones his skills, with Captain Zach Timmons, by competing in major tournaments like the NEFMA Bluewater Tournament and Don Comb’s Wahoo Roundup. They have been featured on Nuts & Bolts of Fishing with Capt. Cefus McRae. When he isn’t landing fish, Rob enjoys hunting waterfowl, deer, and good waves on beach days with his family.
