Meet the Founders
Michael McClayCEO/Co-Founder (Left)
Michael grew up in the Midwest outside of Chicago with a lifelong passion for the water. When he moved to Ft. Lauderdale three years ago he realized he found his home on the water in South Florida. Michael’s goal now is to show as many people as possible (whether a visiting tourist or permanent resident), a good time on the water. He believe’s the best way of succeeding at this is to make it extremely easy, convenient and fun for all customers.
Andrew CohenCEO/Co-Founder (Right)
Andrew Cohen was born and raised right in Ft Lauderdale. During his numerous young 20’s jobs, such as Scuba Instructor, Navy dolphin trainer, and Yachtie, he completed his MBA through London School of Business and Finance. He moved back to Florida in 2016 to create a company following his passion: “to show people a great time”. With complementary attributes, Andrew and Mike continue to work together to create a one of a kind company geared towards fun on the water.
