About Captain Dale

For Captain Dale Wills, it all started with chasing blues while operating gamefish charters from North Carolina to Mexico working as a mate to his father, Captain Wills Sr. The first in his family to graduate college, Dale used his marketing degree to join a firm in Atlanta selling advertising. But with a love for all things offshore, he earned his captain’s license and became a charter captain in St. Martin, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Panama, Grenada, the Caribbean, and along the eastern seaboard.
