“As a native Floridian, and having grown up on the water, I have developed a deep appreciation for our unique marine environments. As a licensed captain, with a passion for the outdoors, I am happy to offer a unique perspective on our local ecology here in Jupiter, as well as the greater story of the Loxahatchee River.” ~ Capt. John
