Captain Turtle

Captain Turtle was born in September 1996 in Georgia. Shortly after he was born his family moved to Guam. After returning to the United States at the age of 18 Turtle moved to Key West to get back to his passion for the ocean. Working as a commercial fisherman he learned the waters around Key West before becoming a licensed captain. He is passionate about all things ocean related and loves to travel, explore the world with his backpack when he’s not working.


Captain Pawel

Captain Pawel was born in July 1980 in Poland. After getting his college degree in Poland he wasn’t ready yet for the real life and the real job, so he moved to Key West. Very quickly he fell in love with the ocean and opened a watersports business to be able to share his passion for the water and show everyone why he chose to live here.

Our Mission

We want to take you to the place that only seem to exist on postcards and calendars. We want you to relax, enjoy every moment of it. We want you to come back from our trip and say that this was the highlight of your vacation and one of the best things you did in your life. 

I realize that vacation in Key West is very expensive. It costs you a lot of money to get here and to stay here. But you shouldn’t try to save money on experiences. Great memories is what you will take home with you when you leave. That’s why I think that you should choose our family owned and operated business because creating great memories is what we do best. Become friend with your captain, see the hidden gems and feel like a local for a day….
