Captain Paul Nicholson US Coast Guard licensed Master Captain

I grew up in Oregon and have been lucky enough to Jet Boat the great whitewater rivers in the Pacific Northwest. I owned my first boat at age 15 and have been a boat nut ever since. I am a former military officer, stock broker, TV Fishing show host and Air Field Supervisor at McMurdo Station Antarctica.

When I am not on the water I am working on plans for our next bigger Jet Boat. My perfect day is exploring a new stretch of river with fun loving guests. You will laugh and hear some tall tales when you ride with me.

Captain Janet Harding US Coast Guard licensed Master Captain

I grew up boating and waterskiing on the lakes of Indiana and Illinois. After a career in real estate I worked as a driver for the US Antarctic Program at McMurdo Station Antarctica.

When I am not on the water I enjoy snowskiing, bicycling and my family. My favorite part of being a Captain is meeting wonderful people from all over the world. I love adventure on and off the water .
