My name is Drew Naeckel. I am the owner and operator of Mangrove Maniacs. A service that I am very proud of and hope I get the chance to share with you. I felt compelled to write a bio on myself to assure you that I indeed know what is going on and can show you a safe, fun and exciting time on the water. I've held a OUPV Coast Guard license for over 10 years now and spent 23 years on these waters. Since 10 years old I have owned a boat and was eager to explore the area, and explore I did! At a young age, gaining experience like this leads to being a confident and competent guide. Come out on an adventure with me and I will prove it. I always work very hard to ensure that your time with me is one you will talk about for a long time after you step foot back on solid ground.
