Born and raised in Seminole, Florida, Kaycee always felt close to the water as a kid. Spending many days with her family boating out to spoil islands in Clearwater to camp. She frequently remembers long nights around a fire and stargazing on the beach.
Once in high school, she started participating in local beach clean ups to help bring awareness to the constant pollution. After graduating, she spent most of her days working in a small marina discovering just how big her passion for the water was and decided to start learning all she could about the boating industry.
Jack and Kaycee met while working in the Clearwater Beach Marina. Having just returned from his first season of yachting, he introduced her to the industry and they quickly started working to gain experience. They were joined together on a 50ft boat as Captain and Mate and began their journey towards enjoying and sharing their passions as a team. Because of their history of working well together, Jack and Kaycee create a fun and playful environment while remaining professional. Having spent years in the customer service industry they love to take care of each guests needs in their own exciting way. Recently Kaycee has taken up a love for cooking and is always looking for new ways to spice up her meals. She often picks up a recipe and makes it her own by adding her own personal touch. Together they share the same passion for scuba diving, boating, and adventuring. They look forward to being able to share their experiences with guests. Jack and Kaycee are excited to continue their journey in the charter industry and explore what the beautiful Caribbean has in store.

Jack and Kaycee and Island Hoppin!
Way to work hard, but make it look easy. You cant be this successful unless you do really care for other people. The vibe of the trip was so chill yet very professional chef, boat captain, divemaster, smiles, and laughter every day. Cant really think of anything to improve.
Thanks for the trip of a lifetime!
Thank you Jack and Kaycee for introducing us to the beauty and fun of the USVI. Each day brought a new adventure - snorkeling in uninhabited coves, hiking into the petroglyphs, or sailing past so much natural beauty. Jack is an expert captain who managed the boat exceptionally well. Kaycee kept us well fed with an incredible menu of gourmet foods. We felt so well taken care of. Island Hoppin’ is an incredible charter experience and we are leaving with amazing memories!
We cannot thank Captain Jack and Kaycee enough for making our week of sailing in the USVI the most memorable vacation of our lives! Each day was filled with a new destination and the gourmet food was unbelievably delicious! Island Hoppin’ is a beautiful boat and the hospitality that Jack and Kaycee provided went above and beyond what we ever expected. It was a dream vacation that these 4 couples had been planning for over 2 years. When we postponed a year ago because of COVID, we were so disappointed, But.... it was definitely worth the wait!!! Thanks again for everything! We have so many memories of this great week!
