What's our story? Our story is passion.
American Offshore Inc. was founded in the summer of 2016 by Michael Bootle, an avid Offshore angler who grew his Offshore passion primarily off the coast of Charleston, SC. His passion first began when he started fishing 50+ miles Offshore with his father, William T. Bootle, on their 1991 2300WA Hydra Sport named "RAMBLIN ROOSTER!" Whether trolling top water for pelagics or bottom fishing the deep for snapper or grouper, Michael knew his passion was just Offshore.
A true Patriot, Michael served from 2010 to 2016 in the United States Coast Guard as an Avionics Electrical Technician in locations such as Key West, Miami, the Outer Banks, and Savannah. One common theme for these duty stations? They were on the coast! Living on the shore allowed Michael to continue fueling his passion for Offshore fishing while serving on board Coast Guard Cutter Thetis, Air Station Miami, Aviation Technical Training Center, and Air Station Savannah.
Now 20+ years after his first Offshore trip, his passion is stronger than ever with a drive to share his passion with other current and future Offshore adventurists.
What's our mission? Our mission is conservation.
We sincerely hope you agree with us when it comes to CONSERVATION. We want our future generations to have a better opportunity to enjoy the moments our previous generations have seen and what we're able to experience today. If we had a dollar for every amazing memory our oceans have provided the citizens of this world - we would be able to cure cancer and world hunger several times over.
As a planet our oceans have fed us, entertained us, challenged us, and shaped us. It's our duty to ensure our oceans are cared for. Rest assured - 100% of all American Offshore Inc. profits (after costs, of course) will be donated to organizations that help keep our oceans alive and thriving.
Will you join us in the fight to keep our oceans clean and healthy? Let's get started.
CONSERVATION is for us all....
