My name is Bryan Stockbridge. My wife Diana and I are outdoor enthusiasts, stewards and adventurers who love being out on the water. We became Coastal Systems Naturalists through the Florida Master Naturalist Program and we own and operate Gulf Coast Kayak in Matlacha.
We purchased the business a little over a year ago and we feel very lucky to have such a beautiful view of the north side of Matlacha Pass right from our location. Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, which is part of Pine Island Sound that borders Charlotte Harbor, is such a unique and productive ecosystem with so many flora and fauna. Each day we come to work is a new experience. It truly is a rare day when we don’t see manatee in the channel feeding on sea grass, dolphin tossing fish in the air and snook flushing out prey from the mangroves.
