Capt. John's Good Vibes
What's Up Everyone - it's Capt. John! Thank you for taking the time to surf our site. I am the Owner of this company and run our 31' Good Vibes Boat. I have been boating this area since 2005 and know a lot about the water. It's my favorite place to be and showing new people my favorite place is my favorite thing to do! Families, kids, friends, bachelorette parties, couples, anniversaries, birthdays - come one, come all! You bring the party and I'll host the experience.
Good Vibes Only!
Capt. Tom's One Love
Well Hello Everyone - it's Captain Tom! I am originally from Duluth, Minnesota, but have traded my snow suit for a swim suit! Being a USCG Licensed Captain for almost 15 years, I am no stranger to the water and have been operating boats for a very long time. Let me provide you with a great experience aboard 'One Love' and we'll probably laugh most of the ride. I like to blend with all crowds and keep the mood as positive as possible. After all, we're on a boat!
One Life - One Love!
Hello Everyone, it's Ali! Thank you for reading through our site and considering to spend a day with me! I love where I live, grew up here and don't plan on leaving any time soon. Sarasota and it's surrounding areas have so much to offer and growing up here has not only made me knowledgeable of the here and now, but also the past and how things were. I am going to show you such a nice day. By no means do I call myself a docent, but I can certainly hold my own. I'm a bit of a nerd, but in a really fun and genuine way. I look forward to meeting you all and sharing an epic day with you!
Why We Started Kokomo Charters
To make every day, a good day.
True Story. Everyone starts somewhere, and most times we stay at that place because we're too afraid of making changes. We (John & Ali) took a shot in dark at making what we love to do, our jobs! With a ton of effort and a little luck, here we are and wouldn't want it any other way! We have a passion for outdoors, travel, culture, and to connect with new people and host experiences that create lasting memories. The Vibe is always positive, the reviews are always genuine and everyone is feeling good. We can't ask for any more than that.
