Captain John’s Voyage of Hope and New Beginnings is founded on the Belief that active participation in the Outdoors is a powerful, healing, and fundamentally life-changing experience. Captain John’s Voyage of Hope and New Beginnings mission is to use Fishing, Boating and Outdoor activities to give back and make a meaningful impact on the lives of others. For Years, we have known of the philosophical shift that outdoor activities cause within those who participate in them and how that profoundly impacts the wellness of our society. Through Our Fishing and Boating programs, Captain John’s Voyage of Hope and New Beginnings will be able to impact many people who otherwise would not be able to experience a Voyage of this Magnitude.
Captain John’s Voyage of Hope and New Beginnings will be able to offer events for people who can benefit from once-in-a-lifetime Boating and/or Fishing experiences. Our outdoor programs will support families suffering through the terminal illness of one of its’ members and underprivileged youth who lack proper mentorship Purple Heart and live combat veterans. Often the price to participate in fishing, boating, and outdoor activities is a limiting factor and we believe that there should be no cost to participate in our events. With our programs forever evolving and growing.
We hope to provide disabled and disadvantaged children the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing.
Children with developmental and intellectual disabilities can have such a hard time getting through the day. They have to work so hard to deal with all the stimulation that comes at them. Finding a recreational activity that relieves some of the stress can provide an outlet. It can be a taste of freedom. And the comfort and peace from the water usually makes the rest of the day more calm.
We’re all drawn to the water for different reasons and along different courses, yet we all arrive at the “place” that fills us with an almost intangible feeling of joy and peace. For all of those glorious days — the moment you caught the boating bug, that perfect sunset, the time the fish were really biting, the experience that made your family bonds stronger than ever, the most fun you’ve ever had in your life — There is one memory, most likely, that stands out from the rest, We work hard to provide such an experience.
Your’s Truly, Capt. John
