Meet Your Captains

Captain Jack

Captain Jack La Plante has spent all of his life on the water as a merchant mariner.  He has traveled the Great Lakes, Mississippi River, Gulf of Mexico, Central and South America.  His love of nature has taken him to the Southwest Coast of Florida where he shares our wonderful  wildlife and pristine ecosystem with your family.

Captain Linda

Captain Linda Middleton has lived in Matlacha, Florida for three years. Her love for this area has encouraged her to share her knowledge of the beautiful south west Florida birds and water life with all who board her boat. Come join her on one of her exciting tours on the Captain Jack Tiki Too tropical vibe boat or the artistic flair of the Leoma Lovegrove boat. Captain Linda will entertain you with her witty sense of humor as she skillfully navigates around the colorful canals and historic areas of Matlacha. In her spare time Captain Linda loves to play her piano and do artwork. She is especially proud of her original works of art that decorate the Tiki Too. Captain Linda holds a US Coast Guard master license.

Great Tour!

We have never been to Matlacha before, and thought that taking a boat tour would give us a good feel for the island. Even though there as only 2 of us, this tour company was willing to take us.
Loved Captain Linda! She was very informative about the area, wildlife, and environment.
It was a perfect 1 1/2 hr to be on the water.

Just Awesome

Having gone out with Captain Jack last year we booked again with them for Haloween this year.
He was waiting for us at the dock and had a parking permit ready for us.
Our aim was to see dolphins but I could never have imagined just how many we would have seen. We had different pods follow us for virtually the whole 4 hour trip. At one time there was a pod of 10 dolphins.

We had a separate visit from 2 adults and a baby dolphin. Then we had a dolphin just jump beside us all the back to the dock for about 15 minutes. We had intended on going to cabbage key for lunch, but when we got there he was closed for some renovations, so we ended up at Barnacle Phil’s, which was absolutely fantastic, I had triple tail basket meal, and it was great. Captain Jack has a new Tiki boat, and we had such a fantastic day, we decided to extend it and take a sunset cruise on the Tiki Boat. WOW! Captain Linda has just a fantastic job of making this a real spectacle, with lights, paintings and Tommy Bahama furniture. We had snacks drinks and the most fun ever. This was a most memorable day, Captain Jack and Captain Linda are really special and go all out to give you an experience of a lifetime. We cannot thank them enough. We will treasure this day forever.

Captain Linda was fantastic

We all enjoyed the trip – definitely a highlight of our vacation. We were fortunate to see dolphins, manatee, stingrays and a bevy of birds. Linda is very engaging and informative giving a lot of perspective on the area and the ecology of the area. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
