Ahoy there! I’m Captain Eric Moody, a native of coastal Georgia and a full time resident of Jekyll Island for over 25 years with 16 of those years has been spent as a fishing guide. Born in Savannah, Ga and growing up in Hinesville, I was always close to saltwater. You can say its in my blood. When I first moved to Jekyll from just up the coast my first job was as a waterski/wakeboard instructor at the now closed Ski Rixen Waterski Park where Tidelands Nature Center now resides. After its closing I did what most young people do at a tourist destination and started waiting tables and bartending. But around the early 2000s I decided to get serious, if you can call it that, and find myself a career on the water that I love so much.
I’m married to the lovely Claire Moody who is the General Manger of the Seafarer Inn and Suites on Jekyll. Check out her hotel! You’ll love it! https://www.seafarerinnandsuites.com/
