Born and raised on the waters of central Florida, Aaron has had a lifetime of experience in and on the water. He started spearing fishing at a very young age out of Port Canaveral with his father. His passion for modern day “freediving” began in the murky waters of the Indian River. Aaron built his first speargun, a 36” true mid handle, to target sheepshead and mangrove snappers.
In 2013, Aaron was laid off from his full time job. He decided to sell everything he owned, move to the Florida Keys, a place he and his family regularly visited as a kid, and pursue his passion. The Florida Keys were an easy choice with its reputation of world class fishing and diving! Aaron dedicated 3 years learning the waters off of Key West and spent every spare second and dollar on the water.
In 2016, Aaron started his own charter fishing and free diving business, Dibs On Bottom Adventures in Key West, Fl. Today, Aaron works full time as a charter captain, commercial fisherman, and aspiring YouTube creator with his channel Key West Waterman! Through his work, he shares his love for the water and the experiences that come along with it!
