Florida Boat Captain for Hire

Florida Captain Dave Subers has a great deal of experience in relocating and delivering vessels in and around ports, canals, rivers, marinas, homes, and ICWs along Florida’s navigable waterways.

He also has done vessel reposition voyages in all of Florida’s inlets, ports, and intercostal waterways. If you are looking for a Florida captain who has done and is capable of doing just about everything, then you want to hire someone like Captain Dave Subers.

His years of experience as a Florida boat captain has allowed him to become familiar with the inside and outside routes of Florida’s navigable waterways, bridge clearances, water depths, and opening times. He also knows when and where to change course and which points to enter on the intercoastal waterways.

Florida is surrounded by shallow waters, so hiring an experienced captain who is familiar with the best routes is of utmost importance to ensure that your vessel is safe. If you decide to hire an inexperienced captain, you may put your vessel at risk of grounding when traversing unfamiliar routes, including shoaling areas.

In addition, a smart and observant Florida captain who knows how to read and follow tidal patterns will keep your boat away from any trouble while you’re out at the sea. Captain Dave Subers is that kind of Florida captain.

As an experienced Florida captain, he knows how to avoid shallow and rocky places along the scenic waterways of Florida. He also knows how to safely pilot a vessel, big or small, in the busiest shipping ports and shipping channels of Tampa and Tampa Bay.

Florida is full of busy seaports, meaning that vigilant awareness is required from captains who wish to cross them. Aside from Tampa, other extremely important areas where caution should be practiced at all times are the ports of Fernandina, Fort Pierce, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Port Miami, Pensacola, and Canaveral, among others.

The big bend area is another important location that Florida Captain Dave Subers has experience crossing. In this area, knowledge about a vessel’s fuel burn rate and fuel capacity is extremely vital as last chance stops for diesel are extremely rare. Knowing about your vessel’s draft and fuel type is also equally important as the two will help you determine how far to go and when to cross over.

Do you want your precious boat to be piloted by a newbie captain who doesn’t know that much about Florida’s waterways? Of course not! This is why you should only hire an experienced captain like Captain Dave Subers to handle your vessel relocation and delivery needs.

Captain Dave Subers is a yacht delivery and vessel relocation specialist who has a wealth of experience navigating the waters of Florida, including the inside and outside routes. Give us a call today so we can get started with your boat relocation.
