Our Team

Professional team with a passion for fun flights over the Bay.

Captain Judd has spent his lifetime on the water; raised in Leelanau County, he grew up fishing the Great Lakes. His skill and passion for being on the water grew as he matured. At fourteen, he began working on a fishing boat and he has never looked back.
Eventually, he decided it was time to strike out on his own. A lifetime of experience has allowed Captain Judd to create the perfect getaway. Safety always comes first but fun is a very close second. He ensures that each individual’s needs are personally met; advice, instruction, and demonstrations are readily given.

In addition to his decades of practical experience, Captain Judd has been licensed by the US Coastguard for 20+ years.

Working with the Coast Guard On West Grand Traverse Bay. Captain Judd also Captains for the US Coast Guard. The Coast Guard contracts boats to help them with their training. This is more cost affective for them in the long run. We usually go out at night, the Coast Guard practices landing the basket etc… on the back of the boat. These guys are amazing from the pilots to the crew! The Coast Guard risk there lives on a daily basis.

Thank You to the Coast Guard for all they do!  Check out these pics!  gocoastgurad.com
