Captain Dave Kusterer's 26-foot port launch, The Islander, carries eighteen passengers on a 45 minute tour. Captain Dave prefers to use a smaller boat as it can reach many areas of the Thimble Islands that can not be accessed by larger vessels. You will get a more personal experience with Quality Over Quantity.

We limit the tour to 14 passengers to allow everyone plenty of room without being crowded.

See the islands like you've never seen them before on a smaller boat!

Members of his family have shared a house on Kidd Island since 1903, so Dave's stories reflect his knowledge of the history of the Thimble Islands.

Captain Dave has been offering tours of the Thimble Islands since 1986. During the winter months you can see Dave's wildlife cruises in Florida which he has been doing for the last 21 years.
