Capt. Hook Spotted In Key West!

I found Key West’s own Capt. Hook! 100% TRUE, Capt. Hook is from Key West, Florida… who knew? I know, you’re saying that Captain James Hook is a fictional character in the movie Peter Pan. The character is a pirate captain of the brig Jolly Roger, and lord of the fairy-tale village of Neverland… hmm, I thought that was Michael Jackson! His name plays on the iron hook replacing his right hand, cut off by Peter Pan and eaten by a crocodile. You can find Key West’s REAL Capt. Hook (fishing boat captain) at the Key West City Marina at the Palm Avenue Causeway...

Souvenir Bank Vault

1891 Historic Wachovia Center Building This is WAY TOO COOL! Founded in 1891 this former bank at the corner of Duval Street & Front Street in Key West is nothing less than a delight for the eyes.

Pirate Legend Calico Jack

Being the history buff that I am, I’m constantly looking at street names trying to find references to the past. The pirate Calico Jack Circle street name is surrounded by an “A” list of other famous pirate street signs in every direction. Here’s more than you’ve ever wanted to know about his pirate past. Born John Rackham December 26, 1682 commonly known as Calico Jack, was an English pirate captain operating in the Bahamas and in Cuba during the early 18th century. His nickname derived from the calico clothing he wore, while Jack is a diminutive of “John.” Active...

Catamaran Tour

Here’s a blast from the past revisited! (Enjoy, It’s from years ago!) Ever been on a catamaran? A catamaran is a multihulled boat consisting of two hulls with a supporting structure in-between powered by sail or engine. They’re built for speed and stability rather than equal weight distribution as with ‘traditional’ monohulled boats. We went on this one and it was an AWESOME 3-4 hour experience setting us back only $35 a person. Seen here is my better half… that would be the one on the right and our tour guide for the day Scott on the left. Our friend Scott...
