For the past 20 years, Captain Chris has plied the inner- and outer-shore waters surrounding Palm Beach. With a degree in marine affairs and ecosystems behind him, he has honed his knowledge and understanding of the region's 4,500 aquatic species that dwell in fishing grounds.

Chi-Chi Rodriguez won eight PGA Tour events in his career, but it was his creative flair on the fairways and vivacious personality off the course that turned him into a golf legend. At Palm Cove Golf and Yacht Club, the 18-hole, par-71 course grants golfers a window into the creative mind of the World Golf Hall of Famer, who designed the layout along the scenic banks of the St. Lucie River. The course incorporates narrow, tree-lined fairways, open holes, and water hazards into a seamless layout, presenting multiple challenges without making golfers solve their scorecards like a Sudoku puzzle.
After rounds, golfers can unwind over pub fare and cold beers at the Palm Cove Sports Grill. Guests can play pool, catch live sports on the flat-screen TVs, or whistle out onto the course from the back porch in an attempt to summon lost golf balls.
