Captain Jim DeVillez – Welcome

I am Captain Jim.   Dolores, my first mate and I reside in Marathon, in the beautiful Florida Keys:

I work as a freelance boat captain.  Although semi-retired my passion is cruising.  I also, enjoy photography and fine art oil painting.  Living in the Keys makes, Boating, Photography and Fine Art a way of life.


USCG 50 Ton Merchant Mariner Credential, Near Coastal

United States Passport

TWIC,  Transportation Workers Identification Card

American Heart Association First Aid, CPR, and AED Certificate

FCC Radio Operators License.

Scheduling a Delivery

I am presently working on my fall calendar, so contact me as soon as you have a plan in mind. Generally, bringing boats down to Florida in the fall can occur from late September until Thanksgiving.  Bringing your boat south before the frost eliminates winterizing.  Pre-departure planning is key to a successful trip.  Different research is required for local deliveries, than long distance voyages.  Free estimates for each passage.

Thanks, I look forward to assisting you!  Capt. Jim
