Captain Joy

As owner and operator of Harbor Lights, Captain Joy first sailed as a young girl with her dad and 4 brothers in a small boat. She has owned a mono-hull sailboat and has sailed the eastern seaboard and Mediterranean, Bimini as well as sailed catamarans cruising the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
Capt. Joy holds a 100 ton-inland commercial Captain's license with sailing endorsement. Several times each year she and Captain Mike organize a flotilla of yachts to the British Virgin Islands, one of the most beautiful cruising places in the world and one that novice sailors enjoy with no worries. Her most recent excursion Sailing Sardinia and touring Rome left guests with smiles and memories for years to come.

Capt. Joy started her charter business to add to the BigDCats fleet in 2016 to offer a unique venue and opportunity for individual guests and corporate clients on the Rockwall Harbor for entertaining customers and employees in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

In Capt. Joy’s own words: 

“I love bringing accessibility to the water and boating to everyone. I want to take you on a mini adventure right here in Dallas. You will enjoy good food on our dinner cruises prepared by some fantastic caterers and restaurateurs. You may bring your own food to any public event and enjoy a meal with family and friends on the water. You will leave Harbor Lights with a smile on your face, refreshed and eager to take a cruise like this in the beautiful islands of the world one day”.
