I grew up in Port Isabel and love it here.  I started my career as a deckhand with The Original Dolphin Watch in 2004 and worked my way up to become the Captain of the Double Sunshine.  I love my job, I get to meet new people everyday and have the pleasure of introducing them to our area and the different marine life species.”
