The Captain


Introducing Captain Ross

As the son of a Merchant Marine, Capt. Ross was introduced to the sea at a very early age. He’s been in and around the waters of Southwest Florida most of his life and enjoys sharing his boating passion with his passengers.

Capt. Ross is a United States Coast Guard-certified captain with a Masters Merchant Mariners Certificate. He’s served as an officer in the USCG Auxiliary and been a commercial captain in the area for eight years.

He has extensive knowledge of Lemon Bay and the area’s many barrier islands, and feels every tour he offers is a unique adventure with the amazing wildlife and scenic views.

Captain Ross goes out of his way to ensure his passengers have a truly memorable experience aboard his boat, the Bonnie Joy.
