The Eleutheran Adventurers were a group of English Puritans and religious Independents who left Bermuda to settle on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas in the late 1640s. The small group of Puritan settlers, led by a man named William Sayle, had been expelled from Bermuda for their failure to swear allegiance to the Crown, and were searching for a place in which they could freely practice their faith. This group represented the first concerted European effort to colonize the Bahamas.
Capt. Kid & Son Eleuthera Guided Boat Tours,
is a family owned and operated business.
Capt. Jody Pinder's family has lived on the Island of Spanish Wells for many generations. Jody was given the nickname Kid when he started commercial lobster fishing with his older brother at the age of 18. Capt. Kid traces his family ancestry back to the Eleutheran Adventures who shipwrecked at Preachers Cave and settled the Bahamas in 1648.
Jody said, "We grew up here. The waters around our island is home. From swimming, snorkeling, spear fishing, we did it all. It was part of our daily life. Sailing, and boating around the islands, is as natural as driving a car. Learning and discovering my suuroundings by boat, taught me to respect and cherish the water, and I take pride in passing on my love & passion for this island retreat."
Jody's son, Kayston is a fully certified Captain. He has lived on the island all his life, and spent his teenage years on the local waters. The waters around Spanish Wells was his backyard. He spent his summers on the water, fishing, snorkeling, and hunting turtles. He has developed a skill at catching them, which is incredibly difficult. Kayston is great with people of all ages. Whether you are a child, teenager, or an adult, your day spent with him will be a very enjoyable and memorable one.
Capt.Kid and Capt. Kayston are fully STCW 95 certified, and are locally licensed captains.
