The Crew
Captain Jamie grew up fishing, diving, spearfishing,
lobstering, and free diving in the Florida waters and the
Keys. The greatest gift of his parents was saturating him in
the water from the age of 2. It was inevitable that he would
eventually find himself in Key West running charters. A diver
at 14, instructor at 19, and Instructor Trainer at 22, it was clear
this was his path. So after a 14 year stint as a "productive
member of society" with a "real grown up" job, he moved to
Key West to follow his heart. He says with a smile now "I'll
never go back".

Captain Tim rounds out our full time crew as an key
member of the Island Time gang. As an accomplished
Divemaster and angler, Captain Tim came down to Key
West several years ago in search of warm waters and
bright skies. A new Englander by birth and a freshwater
conch by choice, Tim is best described as a humble
gentleman. He is a very skilled angler and finds himself
at home on the right end of a Tarpon rod often. Another
rare find, Tim is just as comfortable introducing new
anglers to the wonderful sport of fishing as he is
fighting the elusive
Silver Kings on the flats. His
charisma is matched only by his genuine desire to make
every charter better than the last.
