Our Story

Starting out as a Sail charter company we got tired of not being able to take our guest to the back country where calmer water during the winter times tend to be easier on the guest.  Capt. James retired from the US Navy and retired 4 years ago as a Chief.  Now he owns and operates Sail Florida Adventures and Nomad Charters.
