Meet the Crew: Janine Ferguson Chouiniere
As a West Palm Beach native, Janine began enjoying the beauty and thrill of the local waterways at a young age. She now works on the Kyalami as a dive guide and deck hand, and also has her captain's license. With her “native” knowledge of this area, she is a perfect fit as tour guide for Jupiter Water Tours. If not at work on the Sexy Red Boat, she will often get her water fix by kayak. She is especially fond of manatee sightings, gators, and river otters, and still gets excited by the magical view of the Jupiter Lighthouse.
