Capt Christy Lenz
A Local Family Owned Business Since 2006
I was raised in Vero Beach, Florida and graduated from VBHS. Nominated to the Air Force academy and West Point, I joined the USAF and spent 12 years in various locations in the U.S. and over seas. I also graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Criminal Justice.
One of my best duty stations was Andersen AFB, Guam where I spent 8 years and met my wonderful husband, Gary, who was also serving in the USAF. We have a blended family of 4 children, 3 beautiful girls and 1 great son. We have 5 new additions, which are our beautiful grand baby girls.
In 1987, we were assigned to KI Sawyer AFB, MI where my husband retired with 20 years and me with 12 years. After many snowy winters in Upper Peninsula MI, we moved home to Sebastian, Florida.
Holding down several jobs ranging from an Executive Administrative Assistant, Property Manager, to a mate on a local Eco-tour boat, I decided to go into business for myself. The experience on the Eco tour boat inspired me so much I decided to get my Captain License. After all, I grew up on these waters, boating, fishing and skiing. Meeting all the requirements to become a USCG Master Captain, I opened the doors to Capt Christy Lenz "Casual Cruisin" in 2006 and haven't looked back. I have truly been blessed and I am thankful for the opportunity to show people our beautiful, pristine waterways and the fantastic wildlife. It is by far the best job I have ever tackled and this, I know, is what I am supposed to do.
Capt Christy's "Casual Cruisin" provides a variety of services. I have Private Pontoon Boat Tours, Kayak and Stand up Board Rentals and Tours, Shuttles to the Spoil Islands, Family Re-Unions, Picnics and more. We also provide "Custom" charters and or events such as "Moon Light Paddles".
When you set sail with me on my 24ft Pontoon Boat, you will enjoy your Private sightseeing tour on very comfortable seating. The boat is equipped with a Bimini top that will help protect you from the sun. I offer 6 fantastic sight-seeing and narrated tours which range from 1.5 to
3 hours long and accommodate up to 6 passengers. We visit the World Famous Sebastian Inlet, The St Sebastian River "Jungle Cruise", Pelican Island (our 1st National Wildlife Refuge), my southern trip to John's Island, the Spoil Island Tour, and a fabulous Sunset Cruise.
On all of my tours you will have the chance to see dolphins, manatees, a variety of beautiful birds, turtles, alligator, raccoons, stingrays and other wildlife "UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL".
I also provide Kayak and Stand Up Board Tours for small and large groups. My tours range from 2 to 2 1/2 hrs and we paddle to such places as Pelican Island, down the south fork of the pristine St Sebastian River ("Jungle Cruise"), and the Wabasso area just to name a few.
For those of you who would like to venture out on your own, I have Kayak and Stand Up Board Rentals. I offer FREE DELIVERY in the local area whether you want them for 2 to 3 hrs, a half day, full day, fishing, or just to get over to one of our spoil islands.
My motto is "if you can think of it.....I will do it." Come out with me and explore the beautiful waterways we have right here in our backyard. You won't regret it.
A family- owned and operated business since 2006, Capt Christy strives to give the best service to all her customers. I grew up on our local rivers, and take pride in passing on my passion to our community and visitors.
Whether you're looking for a morning or afternoon excursion, a vacation or something special like a family re-union, I have the gear and expertise to help you enjoy the great outdoors. A day with your family.....MEMORABLE!
