Hello, my name is Will Olds, I am a life-long boating enthusiast. I served in the Navy and taught IB High School History for over 20 years. Upon retiring from teaching about 10 years ago I have spent countless hours on the water sharing my passion for boating, exploring, and experiencing local ecosystems. I love to meet new people and see families and groups bond over new shared experiences.

We learned so much about the Islands and their history, the birds, and even the fish! It was a chilly day, but Will was prepared with blankets for all of us.

Captain Will made our boating experience great! He knew the local history, wildlife & asked about our lives as well. The weather was perfect & our adventure was beautiful. We got to see dolphins swimming on our way to Cabbage Key for some excellent lunch. Definitely recommend if you are in the area & looking for a fun day out!

Our water adventure with Captain Will was a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend taking any "on the water" cruise with Will. Our family of 6 all felt very comfortable and we created a lasting memory during our cruise. Will was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to and we learned about the history of the islands during our nature cruise. We loved our recommended stop to have lunch at Cabbage Key (a little hidden treasure). Next time we are on the island, we will be sure to call Will for our excursion!! Thank you for a great day! We didn't want it to end. :) This was sure to be the highlight of our vacation!
