Capt. Benny Blanco is one of the most active guides you'll find in the Everglades. 

Capt. Benny Blanco is one of the most active guides you'll find in the Everglades. 

Benny Blanco grew up in South Florida and gravitated to the local canals and waterways as a young boy. As a teenager he began fishing Biscayne Bay and the Everglades. He became a full-time guide in the late 1990s. 

His work ethic and passion for fishing and the marine environment are undeniable. When he’s not on the water, he is either spending time with his family or giving back in some way. In this podcast, Benny talks about the challenges he faced as a young Hispanic guide and befriending his mentors such as Jose Wejebe and Flip Pallot. We also discuss Benny’s work with Captains for Clean Water, which has been a leading force in Everglades restoration and Hurricane Ian recovery efforts. Benny is an inspiring individual and it's no wonder he has become such a well-respected waterman.

Blanco is an active member of Captains for Clean Water and passionate about Everglades restoration.
