Wedding and Birthday

We were married on my new wife’s birthday and wanted a way to end this wonderful day.
We called Captain Jack at about 10a.m. and found him in Tampa. He answered and met us at his boat in Bokeelia at 4:30!!! He brought along Captain Linda to help. 
This was an amazing afternoon thanks to both Captains. Tours of the islands, with history, cocktails at Cabbage Key, and Dolphins following our boat. We couldn’t have wished for a better end to the perfect day! Don’t miss the chance to get out with either of these fine, experienced Captains….Great experience, wonderful people!!!!

Comfortable vessel and outstanding excursion on Pine Island Sound and Gulf

My father had asked to have his ashes placed in the Gulf of Mexico. Captain Jack as a page on his website for burial at sea. The vessel sat 6 so I was pleased to have all the people that he invited to his last birthday join us. Dad would have wanted it to be a wonderful trip, and it was. Captain Jack went out of his way to make our trip easy, fun and memorable. He offered to stop at Cabbage Key for lunch.

We preferred to dine at Tarpon Restaurant and he made reservations for us. We arrived in 3 cars and he prepared the parking cards for each car. Captain Jack brought Captain Linda who is joining his company. They respect each other and have great report. The vessel had several types of seating, some under cover and some in the open. I sat at the bow which felt like a comfortable chaise lounge. On the way out to the Gulf, we spotted a pod of dolphins and we circled to watch them. He knew the pod and their likely responses to his boat positioning. We placed the ashes and flowers and he circled the flowers as long as we wanted. Captain Jack offered to take us different places associated with the trip. Captain Jack knows his vessel and the waters. I recommend Captain Jack Boat Tours for excursions on the beautiful waters of Pine Island Sound and environs!
