As a lifetime boater and diver, Jim McNiel would be honored to share his love of boating and the water with you. He’s owned boats his entire life ranging from old stand up jet ski’s to runabouts. But, in 2018, he quit his job in the corporate world (as an IT sales engineer) to be the captain on his 44’ French sailing catamaran for guests like you! Jim has been doing charters with phenomenal reviews for over two years in St. Petersburg, FL… but you can’t compare Florida to the Caribbean so here we are. Jim is not only a USCG 50 Ton Master captain and a PADI Rescue Diver, but he is also a private pilot, certified skydiver, graduated from Western Michigan University and also loves to cook! He can replicate most dishes, such as Pad Thai from his recent trip to Thailand, a filet on the grill or the most amazing shrimp tacos ever. Jim will take the utmost care of you and your family and/or guests… so rest assured, you are in good hands!!!! Jim sincerely wants nothing but for you and your guests to have the most amazing experience, with memories to last a lifetime as you embark on your journey together.
And- we almost missed introducing Jim’s partner in crime! Meet Louie! If you and your guests are dog lovers, you will find a furry friend on your journey. (Please note Louie can be boarded and left on the island if a dog onboard is not your preference). Louie prefers to come along for the ride with his dad (Jim), as his passion is also boating and meeting everyone he possibly can. When your family is on vacation, sometimes stuffed animals don’t fit in your suitcase! Louie loves kids and kids love him. Captain Jim has found that most kids love having a dog onboard. Louie welcomes cuddling for the night (if that is what a guest choses!). Louie can also sleep with Captain Jim and (if you let Louie proceed on your journey), he would appreciate peanut butter, your attention, and long runs on the beach. Louie is a 3 year old wire haired Terrier / Box mix (we think!). Jim adopted him from Joplin, MO and can’t imagine a better fit! Louie can be boarded for a charter at client request.
One Of Our Favorite Trips In The Caribbean
Captain Jim and Louie were the perfect hosts on our week aboard Iremia. We have taken a number of sailing trips around the Caribbean and this trip was one of our favorites! The boat was great; very clean and well appointed. Jim could not have been any more accommodating and agreeable to a flexible schedule.
And if that wouldn't be enough to make a great trip.... he is a GREAT cook! The breakfasts were a terrific surprise; not normally being breakfast eaters, we felt spoiled every morning. Couldn't recommend a trip with Captain Jim (and Louie) aboard Iremia any more highly. Looking forward to our next rip with them!!!
Best birthday EVER!!!!
Thank you Jim
Everything was perfect!
We had a great time.
Best Birthday Ever
Jim was absolutely amazing, the boat was beautiful, and the weather was perfect. I celebrated my 30th birthday on board the Iremia, with my closest girlfriends. Rules were, simple and we had a blast! Thanks Jim!
Such a great time!
Great day on the water! The boat was awesome and we loved being able to go to an island and cruise around!
This was such a fantastic experience! The whole process was a breeze - from day one Jim was attentive and answered all questions we had. The boat is amazing, we were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and truly had the best day - greatest decision we ever made! ;)
A great experience for my girl and I. Jim was more than responsive and knowledgeable about where to go. Really appreciated his flexibility on timing. Don’t hesitate. Book it!
Everything first class. Great boat. Great service. Fun day. Can’t wait to do again. Jim is great.
Best 4th of July
We did a full day charter with Jim on July 4th and had a fantastic trip! He was very generous in accommodating our group of five friends. The catamaran was beautiful, well appointed and spotless. We brought our own food & drinks aboard and just enjoyed the leisurely sail to Egmont Key. Capt. Jim singlehanded the boat perfectly, even when we experienced a brief storm squall. He was fun & knowledgeable, and had a great playlist of music for sun & sailing! I will definitely charter with Jim again! I highly recommend this charter to anyone looking for a relaxing, luxurious day on the water in St. Pete Beach sailing with Capt. Jim!
Excellent In every way. Beautiful catamaran, with a gracious and friendly captain. Can’t ask for anything better. Highly recommended!
Amazing time!! Jim is a great captain his boat is gorgeous and definitely will be doing it again.
Jim’s boat was amazing. Spacious, modern, great for a day trip with friends or family. He was very accommodating and took us over to a lovely restaurant on the water. Highly recommend!
Best day on the water!
We had the best day ever on the water with Jim! He was extremely accommodating and his boat was absolutely gorgeous. You will not regret renting from him! We can't wait to enjoy another day at sea with him!
Fantastic experience sailing with Captain Jim! The communication beforehand and the hospitality while on board were both excellent. He was super flexible with our departure time and took great care of us as a group. The Iremía is a gorgeous boat with every convenience you need for a day of fun in the sun. There is tons of lounging room, a great sound system and even a paddleboard! I highly, highly recommend a day sail with Captain Jim. It was an A+ day on the water and we would book again in a heartbeat!
Day sailing on a beautiful luxury catamaran
My family had nothing but great things to say about Jim on their recent boat trip on Dec 7th . They had a great time and thought Jim was very helpful with any questions they had about the boat. They would highly recommend him to anyone considering taking a boat trip with him.
