Stephen Lee : Owner/Operator
As a native of northwest Georgia, Stephen Lee enjoyed fishing and hunting in the Blue Ridge Mountains. He started his first business & earned the rank of Eagle Scout while in high school. During that those early experiences, Stephen developed an understanding that there is no substitute for hard work & that communication is the key to growing a successful business. After earning a bachelor and masters degree in public speaking from Auburn University, he entered the world of business to business sales in Birmingham, AL. A few years later he helped launch a web-based outdoors company, Trophy Stack.com. Stephen and his wife Lauren moved to Perdido Key in 2015 with the intention of launching Intercoastal Safaris. They are now both proud business owners and are blessed to call the Gulf Coast home.
Growing up around Montgomery, AL, Ashley enjoyed the great outdoors while spending summers at Lake Martin. After graduating with a post-secondary degree in Medical Assisting, she served her previous employer well as a Business Administrator. Upon joining Intercoastal Safaris in October 2018, Ashley’s job quickly became an official organizer of all things Intercoastal Safaris. It’s her attention to detail and proactive approach to our hospitality services that makes her a great asset to the company. She now lives in the Orange Beach area with her three kids and loving husband.
Growing up outside Birmingham, AL Catelyn had the opportunity to enjoy the woods and waters of the deep south during her childhood years. Upon entering college she developed a strong passion for waterfowl & bow hunting. Catelyn moved to Gulf Shores, AL in 2017 in an attempt to be closer to the beach and break into the outdoors industry. After cutting her teeth at a local marina, Catelyn, joined Intercoastal Safaris as our Business Development manager. The greatest asset that she brings to the table is her 1st hand experience in booking thousands of charter fishing trips in years past. A combination of Catelyn’s insider industry knowledge and her personal yet professional approach to helping our clients find the perfect fit for their next ‘Uniquely Coastal Hunting & Fishing’ adventure and will serve our guest well for years to come.
Intercoastal Safaris launched in September of 2015. From the very beginning, we placed a big emphasis on communication and as a result have been able to provide consistent service. Owner and operator Stephen Lee, has personally invested 100% of all resources he feels is needed to operate a first-class outfitting service. Stephen is that special breed of entrepreneur that is just crazy enough to strive for perfection. Growing up as sportsmen himself, Stephen has been blessed with the opportunity to embark on several paid excursions and has felt the pain that an unprofessional approach can cause. Those experiences have served as a large motivating factor in our efforts as a company to provide 5-star service. Answering the phone to following up with our clients after their trip is a huge priority.
