The boat

The XO EXPLR 9 is in a class of its own, with a family-focused design that revolves around fun on the water. Whether you prefer being on, in, or around the water, this boat has everything you need.

Cruising, sightseeing, restaurants, bars, lunch cruise or dinner cruise, canal cruise, your choices are unlimited. Want to enjoy a ride up and down the coast or just want to spend the day at a private beach? I have it covered.

Please Inquire and let me help you design the perfect excursion. Custom excursions; Cape Coral, Ft. Myers Riverfront, Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel, Captiva, N. Captiva, Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa, Boca Grande.

When the water is warm enough for my clients, I prefer to place my boat into "sandbar mode" It will fully immerse your friends/family in the moment, creating lasting memories on the water. I will provide three heavy pool noodles for floating fun.

A full day on the water is a good day! For example, the Captain will pickup your party @1000am taking you where you would like (beach, dining, etc..) On a beach trip, I will provide an umbrella, two chairs, and a cooler you can take to the beach.

This tour is charming with the family and friends on N. Captiva and Cayo Costa where the beaches are quiet and you might have the beach to yourself.

Hello - thank you for the opportunity. I am Captain Robert, and I can be your USCG OUPV licensed captain for all your adventures if you need a captain for hire or my own vessel with Broken Compass Charters. My own vessel is a 28ft XO EXPLR 9 pilothouse, open bow vessel. I have 20+ years experience on the water on lakes, estuaries, near shore locations, and I have lived in Cape Coral for 4 years on a canal. My passion is boating, and after nearly 30 years of federal service, I now get to realize this. I keep my boat on a lift so it's clean, and enjoy giving my friends and family memorable excursions of the coastal beaches of Sanibel, Captiva, and Cayo Costa. My mission is to provide you with the most memorable and enjoyable experience here on the Pine Island Sound, its estuaries, and coastal locations of our barrier islands. Beach trips, restaurants, canal cruises? Let's talk and do this!
