Jed was born in Pennsylvania and is a 13 year old fox red lab... that's 91 in people years... so he's basically retired!. He enjoys swimming, taking short walks around Key West, peanut butter, taking naps, hanging out with his little brother, Scrappy, and modeling for our t-shirt logo (Did you recognize him?).
Scrappy is a pitbull-dachshund rescue originally from West Virginia. Scrappy enjoys stealing treats from his big brother, Jed, eating guacamole, sleeping, long walks, cuddling, and drinking (Did you recognize Scrappy from our logo?). Scrappy dislikes water (unfortunate for being a first mate!) and getting his nails cut.

I grew up in the blue ridge mountains. My first attempt at college involved a degree in sculpture. Eventually, I realized that would not offer a job description, quit school and followed a boyfriend down to Key West. He left, I stayed and got a job on a boat. It became my new career choice, and I spent the next decade taking snorkelers to the reef, and running wild dolphin excursions. Eventually I returned to the mountains of Asheville, NC...went back to school and finished my degree in interior design this time. A creative outlet with a job description. After three years behind
a desk, I realized that I was only good until about two-a-clock on a Monday. Attempting to get back on the water, I bought a little boat and moved north, just outside NYC. I worked on the ferry boats around Manhattan, which was amazing! After a couple of years (and true winter) the Keys were calling me home. I finally returned to my true calling. It’s good to be back, and I can’t wait to take you out on a tiki boat adventure!
Adam grew up next to Kennedy Airport in NY, spending time on the water with his family and friends as a child and young degenerate. Sadly he grew up, got a (semi) respectable job and lost sight of what was important. After 10 years in the financial industry, he quit and took off to travel the country by motorcycle, eventually settling into a slower life in the forests and farmland of upstate NY. He worked tending bar, teaching skiing and studying massage until one beautiful February morning when a catastrophic but now laughable heartbreak sent him over the edge and he hit the road again. With a handful of cash, some clothing and a guitar he took off in his van. Weeks later he arrived in Key West and knew he was home. As the laid back pace of island life suits him much better than real life, his days are filled getting reacquainted with the water and doing all the things he missed out on while he was suffocating his inner child in a suit and tie.
