The son of a commercial fisherman, Captain John spent many days and nights exploring the many wonders that the lower keys has to offer. Raised on Sugarloaf Key, located between Key West and Big Pine Key, Captain John enjoyed exploring these world-class waters inside and out fishing, diving, and exploring the many islands, channels, creeks, and waterways which make up what is known as the back-country.
With his younger brother James, Captain John would search for new places to fish and dive and would always bring home fish or lobster for their mother to cook.
As Captain John grew up, he began to broaden his explorations beyond the backcountry to fishing and diving reefs, another entirely different ecosystem full of different wonders and fascinating creatures.
As a young man, Captain John earned many commercial licenses and spent the majority of his time fishing and diving for lobster.
In the late 80's, Captain John created his own charter company and has shared his knowledge and experience with others ever since.
Captain John is thankful to call the lower keys home, saying, "this diverse Eco-system has and will forever be a magical place to me".
Come join Captain John for an incredible adventure on the water!
