Like an Olympic athlete or a professional snipe hunter, Captain Joe's passion for his sport has taken him across the world. He began his angling career on fishing trips with his father, reeling in fish across the United States and internationally in Costa Rica, the Turks, and the Canadian bush. After settling in South Florida more than 25 years ago, Joe began studying the region’s marine life in earnest, also taking up aquatic pursuits such as scuba diving, surfing, and attending merman fight clubs. Today, he employs his knowledge of the area as he leads anglers of all skill levels around Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island, Naples, Bonita Beach, and elsewhere to snag fish such as trout, snapper, grouper, and tarpon. The USCG-licensed captain also leads sightseeing tours to view dolphins and manatees inside his clean, safe three-boat fleet.
Situated along shorelines in Tampa, Naples, and Key West, Florida Marina Club keeps watercraft ready to crest the waves with docking services, fuel docks, and ship repairs. The marinas’ terra firma amenities match the refinement of their seaside offerings. Restaurants and bars home in on local flavors and international atmospheres, from the Cuban and Caribbean recipes at The Club at Key West Harbour to the weekend pool parties at Tampa’s Hula Bay Club. When not dining or enjoying drinks at Jack's River Bar or Gordon's On The River, members can sweat away cares in saunas, glide through heated infinity pools, or sketch the design for a hypothetical seventh chess piece in restive clubhouses.

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
