A bit about us . . . 

Hey there, thanks for coming. My name is Captain John Martinez and I'm excited to be a part of your upcoming Florida Keys adventure. I've lived in the Keys for over 30 years now and have been exploring, fishing, diving, kayaking and having fun here my entire life.  For over 12 years, I owned and operated the only SCUBA diving boat out of John Pennekamp State Park - Reef Adventures - and sold it a few years ago to live abroad with my family.  We enjoyed our time on the Caribbean Side of Costa Rica running a 5 house vacation rental property, but we missed our home in the Keys and decided to head back.  We've found our niche in the Florida Keys houseboat rental business and are excited to help you get to an amazing journey.  Having owned a larger houseboat rental company previously, we knew we were ready for the kind of company that was a bit smaller, a bit more personal and geared towards the kind of people who love nature, fishing, kayaking, relaxing and enjoying a simpler way of vacationing.

My wife, Jessica, helps out with the webpage, some emails and friendliness. Our 14-year-old son, Zane, is a Keys Kid - with his own boat and all -just growing up in a beautiful spot. He sure was cute when he was younger, wasn't he? :) 

We love this place and we can't wait to show it to you. Ask us anything - even if you don't want to rent a houseboat - we are happy to share our local knowledge and steer you in the right direction.  As we like to say . . . just Take it KeySea.  

We hope to see you soon, Capt. John
