WHO WE ARE
Xplore FL is a small charter company offering dive and non-diving charters. Our SCUBA diving charters include shallow water SCUBA diving for fossils off of Venice, shipwrecks, and custom trips. If you do not dive, we offer sight seeing cruises, sandbar excursions, sunset trips, and memorial services for loved ones who have passed. The majority of our charters remain private allowing for a more intimate and personalized experience similar to taking a boat trip with a friend. The boat is a 24′ Sailfish and although not large is able to accommodate 6 passengers, and less with full dive gear before it becomes crowded.
The owner and captain of Xplore FL is an active duty Firefighter and Paramedic in the area working on a local counties Marine Operations division providing fire suppression and water rescues. Brendan was originally born in Maryland and grew up on the water in the Chesapeake, while also boating with family growing up in Englewood/Venice Florida while on vacation every year from birth, this is where a passion for the water was increased, and a desire to share the local area waters was born. Brendan is a USCG OUPV captain who is licensed, and insured for the Gulf of Mexico out to 50 miles from shore. Brendan has interests in spearfishing, treasure hunting, and exploration of the water.
