 Capt. Ritchea has been around boats since he was about 5 years old and started skiing around the age of 10.  Since then he has owned many boats and jet skis.  Capt. Ritchea decided to share his love for the water with others by offering families that live and visit Florida fun, affordable boat charters.

Capt. Aaron

813-302-1800 X210

I'm a native Floridian, 100ton captain as well as a master diver (NAUI). I grew up in Pinellas, never seeming to get enough time on the water. I started as mate on a fishing boat and moved up from there to tour boats, and then to casino and dinner cruise boats. I love the local wildlife and I'm an avid birder. Calm seas don't make skillful sailors.
