What We Do

Dedicated to the more than 21 million veterans of the United States armed forces, Fishing with Warriors is a not‐for‐profit, volunteer run organization, that seeks to help the brave men and women of all branches of the armed forces experience the joy, passion and spirit of high level sporting events and activities at no cost them.

Founded and led by former service members, Fishing with Warriors connects worthy warriors to world class sports. Whether it’s that once‐in‐a‐lifetime fishing trip in the blue seas off of Costa Rica, the thrilling last day of the U.S. Open golf championships, or the championship playoff games for the NHL, NFL , NBA or MLB, our goal is to create lasting, lifetime memories for those who have served our nation.

Fishing with Warriors handles all costs of these veterans’ trips – transportation, lodging, meals and any entry fees – and 100% of donations to the organization are dedicated entirely to covering these costs.

This is a small way to say ‘thank you’ to men and women who have given so much in service of our nation. Please join us in this effort, on behalf of exceptional American heroes.

We are a group of Vets that know you need a break from the normal stresses of daily life. We are dedicated to giving you a trip you will remember forever. To us; nothing makes you forget your daily life’s troubles and stresses like fishing for fish as big as you are. All you have to do is watch the waves and sky and the horizon. As your worries melt away the fish will find you.

When you are not fishing you will be surrounded by others that only want to fish and enjoy themselves. Good food, Good accommodations, Great atmosphere and friends that understand exactly what you have had to deal with.
