Having watched his grandfather and father work in the boating industry his whole life, Brad Reeves found it natural to follow in their wake. In 2011, he expanded the family business, acquiring a fleet of new Bennington pontoon boats to open Reeves Coastal Cruises, a boat-rental company. Each boat is equipped with a Yamaha motor, GPS, and a CD player, and he sends groups of up to 10 sailing the shimmering waters of south Florida with cruise packages featuring four- and eight-hour rentals, as well as two-hour sunset rentals. His wife and business partner, Jennifer, hosts the Florida Insider Fishing Report on Sun Sports and is an NBC 6 Miami meteorologist. She applies this unique expertise of the region to their business and ensuring a memorable experience for their customers. Today, with their twin daughters helping out dockside, they continue a family tradition of getting others together for a fun and safe day on the water, outfitting each vessel with safety equipment, a full tank of gas, and spray-on seagull repellant.
