 The Fortunas Family 


Hi, I am Captian Sam Fortunas Mathis (pictured left) and that is my father Captain Dan Fortunas.


I am the founder of Island Fit SUP&Yoga and Fortunas Family Charters. I have deep roots in the St. George Island area. My grandfather, Captain Dan's Father, was born in the quaint city of Apalachicola. His parents Greek immigrants, came to the area to pursue the family legacy of sponge diving. Our family, The Fortunas Family, also once owned Little St. George Island, the island directly west of main St. George. Therefore, it is no surprise that we have salt water pulsing through our veins. I started my stand up paddleboard business "Island Fit" on St. George Island 5 years ago.  Since then my father and I have decided to expand on my original dream of thriving at the coast to creating a company that we can share our passion for the outdoors, the ecosystem and of course our love for fishing! Our mission is to inspire others to enjoy and appreciate all the Forgotten Coast has to offer.  However you choose to experience the Forgotten Coast, Fortuans Family Charters can't wait to share our "salty" way of life with you!
