ABOUT SALT AND MIST SEA TOURS LLC
Captain Joe Pistone was born in Brooklyn and raised in the Hudson Valley Region of New York. Upon moving to New England nearly 25 years ago, he was intrigued with its abundant history and fell in love with the North Atlantic Ocean. While living on coastal Maine, he spent most of his summer days exploring historic lighthouses and landing and camping on the islands of Casco Bay. In 2015, he relocated to Florida and enrolled into the U.S. Coast Guard’s “Captain School” and upon completion, Salt and Mist Sea Tours was born. Due to its volume, Salt and Mist Sea Tours expanded and in 2017, opened a second location in St. Petersburg, Florida. In 2018, Salt and Mist Sea Tours officially became a Limited Liability Company and in 2019, TripAdvisor, the worlds largest travel website, rated Salt and Mist Sea Tours LLC the top rated Boat Tour Company, earning TripAdvisors “Certificate of Excellence”.
In addition to Salt and Mist Sea Tours, Captain Joe taught General Navigation at a century+ old maritime camp in Kennebunkport, Maine and was also a Captain for Eco Endeavors, a top rated Boat Tour Company on Marco Island, Fl.
