What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?
The boat's flexibilities- its a flats/bay boat that can go into ... places where other, larger boats can not go. Also, the wide variety of fish available. And you never know what you may encounter: a pod of porpoises chasing food or a log-head turtle just getting air.
What?s your favorite part of your job?
Seeing the look on people's face catching fish. Its so gratifying as a guide to get your clients [a] fish. Aside from the fishing is when we all head up to a local sandbar, have the client decompress from fishing, and just wade in knee deep 85 to 90 [degree] water with their favorite beverage.
Miami is known for many things?art-deco architecture, vibrant nightlife, and mix of cultures. But the glue that binds Miami's spectral smorgasbord is the ocean, which is where Watersports of Miami comes in. The company rents out boats and yachts along with a bilingual captain and accoutrements such as stereo systems, coolers, and wet bars. Small groups can lounge or revel in the south Florida sun while cruising past the Miami skyline, near pods of dolphins, and safely away from the Earth's searing, molten core. But the company doesn't stop with just boats and yachts. Staffers can pair customers with water tubes and wakeboards, each of which can be rented alone or added to a boat rental.
