Captain Eric's life started in Broomfield, Colorado many moons ago. He explored the Rocky Mountains while hiking and snowboarding every chance he got, enjoying the mile high city of Denver before spending a few years in Boulder. Eventually the cold winters lost their appeal, and Captain Eric found a renewing warmth in Key West: He threw out those suits worn in Colorado offices and traded them in for wetsuits, and his cubicle and pushy boss were replaced with open water, sea turtles and schools of bottlenose dolphin. Captain Eric splashed in to a life on the water as a Divemaster with Captain’s Corner Dive Shop in 2007, and became a Captain for the same company in 2010. He bought his own boat, “Laid Back,” in the winter of 2011 and has been sharing his love for South Florida marine life on private charters ever since.

Captain Eric was the best! We thoroughly enjoyed our day and sent his email to friends coming down in June. We’re also looking to book again in June with him. Captain Eric spoke to us like he’s known us all his life and that made the trip ...Read More very easy going. The Captain also kept us out an extra hour trying to catch the big ones that got away….and they were BIG ones that got away!!!! Captain Eric fileted our catch so we could have lunch upon our return. This is the first Captain that we will re-book with! Highly, highly recommended!
