About Us

From Rusty: Vanessa and I have been boating most of our lives. We have lived in the Tampa Bay area for twelve years and know we are very fortunate to be able to boat in Paradise. With Tampa Bay's combination of crystal clear water and abundant wildlife its always a spectacular day on the water!

Vanessa grew up sailing on Kentucky Lake, the bay area and coastal gulf waters. I, on the other hand, grew up in southern Louisiana spending every moment possible on the water. I have always been a power boater and worked my way up from the smallest of boats. After meeting Vanessa, I was able to convert her to power boating and now we both love our "Californian."

Our first summer together in Florida we discovered a beautiful little area that has been a nudist gathering spot for over twenty years. We have enjoyed meeting plenty of new people and have made some great friends since then. We know that this truly is Paradise and love the idea of helping others experience the fun and relaxation that comes from a day on the water with friends, great food and a classic Florida rum runner.

Vanessa and I are also both certified U.S. Coast guard licensed captains.
