Over the years, the sea tugged at him even more; he amassed fishing knowledge by talking to locals on the docks during his family's annual trips to the Bahamas, and at the age of 15 he began working on the fuel docks at Lauderdale Marina. The following year, he was asked to compete in his first professional fishing tournament. Though he sometimes still competes, Captain David spends most of his time aboard the US Coast Guard-licensed Lady Pamela II—leading drift-fishing trips around South Florida's natural reefs and shipwrecks,
The 41-foot custom-built and tournament-ready Hatteras boasts a 15-foot beam, air-conditioned bridge, and refrigerators, as well as ample electronics for detecting fish and any ghost ships before they rise from the ocean. At this vessel's helm, Captain David pilots passengers armed with rods, tackle, and various types of bait out to distances of 2, 10, or up to 20 miles from shore on extended daytime and nighttime trips. Groups may hunt in search of small targets such as tuna, snapper, grouper, and mahi-mahi, or larger quarry such as broadbill swordfish and hammerhead or bull sharks.

Coastal Yacht Tours' private Italian yacht plays host to classy, catered affairs along the New River and Inter-coastal Waterway. Up to 12 passengers can gather on the deck to lounge on the wrap-around seats and sip champagne, and beer as they float their way along "The Venice of America." During cruises, guests marvel at views of million-dollar mansions and bask in the splendor of the famous Bahia Mar Yachting Complex. And when food is served—think shrimp cocktails, gourmet cheese platters, and fresh fruit—they can head into the salon, where plush leather seating and rich wood walls turn any meal into a luxurious experience.
In addition to its general cruises, Coastal Yacht Tours has also partnered with waterfront restaurants to offer a specialty restaurant cruise. Cocktails are served as captains steer toward the restaurant and dolphin waiters rush ahead to put in food orders. Upon arrival, guests are dropped off in front of the restaurant and led to a private reserved table to enjoy their meal before re-boarding the yacht and continuing down the water.
