Captain Erik Schroeder

Owner/Captain - FL & CT

As a boater from the age of 9, Erik grew up in Northeast St. Petersburg, and if he wasn't at school or playing soccer, he could be found on the water with friends. The quintessential "boat guy," Erik has shared his love of safe boating and the water with family (3 kids) and friends for decades. After getting a taste of working on the water early on, his goal of creating a career out of his love for boating has finally come true. Erik holds his USCG 50 Ton Captain's License and is Certified in First Aid and CPR. He has captained and owned a variety of motor vessels.

Erik and Ryan have been friends since they worked together as teenagers at Pass-A-Grille Marina.
