About Captain Frank

The Naples School of Boating is based in sunny Naples, Florida and serves the Southwest Florida area including Fort Myers and Marco Island. Our mission is to share our passion for the water by providing high-quality on-water training and coaching. 

The Naples School of Boating was founded by Frank Lecardo, a Licensed Captain who spent the first part of his career on the Long Island Sound teaching safe boating courses, providing on-water training, and helping his customers enjoy the boating lifestyle with trips to popular ports such as New York City, Newport, the Hamptons and beyond. Born and raised on the coast of Connecticut, Frank has recently relocated to Florida and continues to share his passion for boating and teaching with his customers.


I specialize in walking new boaters through the daunting transition from landlubber to skipper. As a coach and mentor, I will tailor the training experience to meet your exact needs and provide you with continuous guidance to ensure your success.
