About Captain Frank

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 New England ports. Born and raised on the coast of Connecticut, Frank relocated to Naples 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.”
