Jerry first learned to swim when at age three, his father threw him into a tank with captive dolphins near his home in the Florida Keys. Jerry has since been on the ocean all his life. He is a US Coast Guard licensed captain and has a B.S. in Marine Archaeology from Drake University (how appropriate that he ended up here in Drake Bay!) Jerry has sailed the world, and has many interesting stories to share. Jerry is also a certified diver, swim instructor, Life Guard, and medic certified.
