Captain
Ricou DeShaw

Member since July 2018 Tavernier, United States
Background
Captain Ricou DeShaw was a young boy when his family moved to the Keys from North Florida in 1959. As soon as he was old enough to operate his own boat, he was nowhere to be found on dry land. His father was an ornithologist, so he knows a lot about nature, birds, fish, and plants. After graduating from Coral Shores High School, he received a full athletic scholarship at the University of Miami. He was then drafted by Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After that, Ricou returned to Tavernier, the gateway to Florida Bay, the upper, middle, and lower Florida Keys. Now, over forty years later still residing in Tavernier, he has the knowledge and experience to ensure a safe and memorable day on the water.
