About the Captain

Sit back, relax, and enjoy a private charter with your family under the utmost care and guidance under Capt. Justice Kidwell!
-Capt. Justice Kidwell owns and operates Gulf Coast Charters of St. Pete Beach. He has been visiting St. Pete Beach before moving there officially since he was a young kid. -He officially began his love for the water at a young age. His father introduced him to the world of being on the water starting with renting jet skis every family vacation. From then on the passion for being on the water was instilled. -As a freshman in college studying Criminal Justice, the true experience in the field of watersports and working the field became present at a boat rental company in St. Pete Beach. Renting out boats, learning the maintenance, and memorizing the waterways by heart lead into the years of 1-3 jet ski tours a day. From there, Justice moved onto a better opportunity being a Licensed Captain at Suncoast Watersports. From being on a Parasail Boat for hours and hours, to running banana boats in tough conditions, to doing rib boat transfers from the beach to the parasail vessels all have equipped him to have the knowledge and skill set he has today. -Capt. Justice prides himself on being a professional/well mannered individual first before anything. Your experience is his number one priority, and he will move mountains to make you feel like family for the few hours you are with him!
