Captain Brett and his wife Terica have two children, Austin and Brooklyn. They live on Whidbey Island with their dogs Fozzie and Lakota, and their cats Panda and Chester.
Deception Pass Tours has a special public/private partnership with the WA State Parks & Recreation Commission and the Deception Pass Park Foundation.
In 2004, before Deception Pass Jet Boat Tours ever started, when Captain Brett was just plain old Brett, he was plagued by a reoccurring dream of a very unusual jet boat. He kept dreaming and dreaming about this silly boat, and he didn’t realize that one day he would be running his own jet boat tours from Deception Pass State Park. He continued having this dream over the course of about 9 months. Finally, at the encouragement of his wife, the next time he had the dream he found the first piece of paper he could and drew a picture of that boat.
Each summer, a team of special people come together to host the tens of thousands of visitors to Deception Pass State Park. These are some of the people who have made your experience world class.
