As a lifetime boater and diver, Jim McNiel would be honored to share his love of boating and the water with you. He’s owned boats his entire life ranging from old stand up jet ski’s to runabouts. But, in 2018, he quit his job in the corporate world (as an IT sales engineer) to be the captain on his 44’ French sailing catamaran for guests like you! Jim has been doing charters with phenomenal reviews for over two years in St. Petersburg, FL… but you can’t compare Florida to the Caribbean so here we are. Jim is not only a USCG 50 Ton Master captain and a PADI Rescue Diver, but he is also a private pilot, certified skydiver, graduated from Western Michigan University and also loves to cook! He can replicate most dishes, such as Pad Thai from his recent trip to Thailand, a filet on the grill or the most amazing shrimp tacos ever. Jim will take the utmost care of you and your family and/or guests… so rest assured, you are in good hands!!!! Jim sincerely wants nothing but for you and your guests to have the most amazing experience, with memories to last a lifetime as you embark on your journey together.

And- we almost missed introducing Jim’s partner in crime! Meet Louie! If you and your guests are dog lovers, you will find a furry friend on your journey. (Please note Louie can be boarded and left on the island if a dog onboard is not your preference). Louie prefers to come along for the ride with his dad (Jim), as his passion is also boating and meeting everyone he possibly can. When your family is on vacation, sometimes stuffed animals don’t fit in your suitcase! Louie loves kids and kids love him. Captain Jim has found that most kids love having a dog onboard. Louie welcomes cuddling for the night (if that is what a guest choses!). Louie can also sleep with Captain Jim and (if you let Louie proceed on your journey), he would appreciate peanut butter, your attention, and long runs on the beach. Louie is a 3 year old wire haired Terrier / Box mix (we think!). Jim adopted him from Joplin, MO and can’t imagine a better fit! Louie can be boarded for a charter at client request.
