Charter a Boat for an Evening at Cap’s

Charter a Boat for an Evening at Cap’s

If you’ve never been to Cap’s Place, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the oldest restaurant in Broward County, you really should think about spending a fabulous evening cruising out of Boca Raton on a charter boat and heading south to the tiny island that is home to the legendary restaurant.

The only way to get to Cap’s Place, which was established way back in 1928, is by boat. They have a little ferry that runs from their private boat dock in Lighthouse Point, which is a little hard, but when you rent our Boca Raton-based charter boat with Captain Dan at the helm, you can sit back and enjoy the view on your way to dinner – and relax in starlit comfort your way back.

There are two great reasons to make the trip to Cap’s Place – the food and the history.

Cap’s Food

For more than 90 years Cap’s has been known for its fresh seafood. You can also enjoy a steak or chicken dish, but fresh-caught Florida seafood is the main attraction. You should also try the Hearts of Palm Salad, which has been a signature dish since the restaurant opened. The salad was originally made from the hearts of sabal palms growing in the Everglades. These days, the hearts of palm come in fresh from Okeechobee. Maryland-style Crab Cakes are another popular mainstay on the menu.

The History

When Captain Theodore “Cap” Knight first opened it in 1928, the restaurant was known as Club Unique. Through the 1930s and ‘40s it was a bustling supper club and casino. During Prohibition, Cap and his wife, Lola, were rumrunners. They brought whiskey in from the Bahamas, successfully dodging the Coast Guard for years. Prohibition didn’t end until 1933, so Cap’s Place was a speakeasy when it first opened. Gambling was also illegal. By the time Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill dined at Cap’s in 1942, everything was on the up and up.

There’s lots more history to explore – and lots of great food to enjoy – at Cap’s Place. Call us at

Charter a Boat to Enjoy Waterfront Dining

Charter a Boat to Enjoy Waterfront Dining

People charter a boat in Boca Raton for all kinds of reasons. Some like to fish, others enjoy taking in the view of the multi-million-dollar homes that line the waterway. You can charter a boat and dive in the waters off Boca Raton. One way to really enjoy a boat charter in Boca Raton is with a stop at your favorite waterfront dining location. 

Here are just a few of the wonderful waterfront restaurants you can choose from: 

The Waterstone Resort & Marina

This luxurious boutique hotel is located between the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean in Boca Raton and it has two restaurants overlooking Lake Boca and the parade of boats on the Intracoastal. Coming off the boat, you might want to try the Waterstone Rum Bar & Grill. The atmosphere is relaxed and the fare – featuring local flavors and an impressive selection of rums – is fantastic. For a special occasion, there’s Boca Landing Prime Seafood & Crafted Cocktails, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, which offers delicious fresh seafood, grilled steaks, handcrafted cocktails and a collection of boutique wines.

The Nauti Dawg Marina Café

This local favorite located at the Lighthouse Point Marina serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a weekend brunch. If you’ve chartered our Boca-based boat for some fishing, you’ll be happy to know that the Nauti Dawg will cook your fresh catch. You can also enjoy live entertainment, Yappy Hour, Wine Down Thursday and more.

The Delray Sands Resort

Despite the name, this beachfront escape is actually in Highland Beach. You can discuss why that might be over a refreshing beverage or a delightful meal at Latitudes, the resort’s ocean-inspired restaurant, which serves modern coastal cuisine, the Wave Pool Bar.
