Captain Joe moved to Fort Myers Beach from Savannah, GA by way of the Florida Keys. He began boating at age nine on Jaybird, a fishing boat he and his father built. His experience includes 18 years as owner/operator of a retail marine business in Atlanta, GA. More recently he has captained tour boats for the number one tour business on Fort Myers Beach.
Joe and his wife and first mate, Glenda, have logged more than 25,000 miles on their trawler, Phase IV, including several voyages to the Bahamas, Chesapeake Bay, Washington DC along with extended stays in the Florida Keys. His sense of humor along with love of the local waterways is sure to keep you entertained on your voyage aboard Jaybird II.
Jaybird II was custom designed to get you up close and personal with dolphins and manatees as well as all of our seasonal and resident wildlife.
The boat is extremely comfortable and wheel chair accessible. There is plenty of room for your cooler plus any gear you wish to bring along.
