Jim & Courtney

Captain & Grill Master

Jim grew up on the beaches of Delaware, spending much of his free time boating and playing on the local waters, fishing and surfing year-round. Local fishing, crabbing and clamming were a way of life growing up on the Delaware shores. Seafood feasts were a central part of his family’s customs and celebrations – and the beginning of Jim’s love for exploring the endless spicing and cooking combinations with seafood. Jim spent his early adult years as a navigator on a minesweeper in the navy during the Gulf War, which, despite the obvious dangers this involved, reaffirmed his love for life on the water and ignited the beginnings of the dream to eventually transition to a full-time career on the water. However, following his career in the navy, Jim’s passion for food and cooking steered him in another direction and he spent the following 10+ years on the west coast in the Monterey Bay area developing and honing his skills in all aspects of the food industry food prepping, serving, and bartending in a variety of environments from eclectic coffee shops to fine dining establishments to large banquet catering events. Jim is looking forward to sharing his love of the water and all the different ways you can explore the water from Makin’ Memories…from our paddleboards, to kayaks, to underwater SubLues, to snorkeling gear, to relaxing on our 360 floating dock, with your feet in the blue Caribbean water and one of Jim’s specialty cocktails in hand, letting all your worries float away!
