Captain Steve-O has lived in the Space Coast/Treasure Coast area all his life. He grew up in and around the water. Since he was 5 he would go clamming and fishing with his father in the Indian River. In his teens and early 20's, he spent a lot of time snorkeling and free diving the shallow reefs off of the treasure coast. As life went on and in between working and raising a family of 5 children, Steve was once again drawn back to the water. He started buying small boats and taking his friends and family out on diving trips. eventually the boats were not big enough and he was spending more time on the water than on land. he eventually went on to becoming a USCG Captain were he currently does what he loves to do most!

Florida's Treasure Coast, an area of reef and beaches off Sebastian and Fort pierce, was so named for the shipwrecks that were caused by what is called the 1715 Plate Fleet disaster, one of the most colorful sagas in Florida's coastal history
In 1715, the Terra Firma Fleet along with the New Spain Flota,( both loaded with silver, gold, and emeralds from Peru and Colombia) were passing through the Florida Straits, when they were caught off guard by a hurricane. The ships were all thrown back by the winds, pushed into the reefs and beaches of what is now called the Treasure Coast
