Meet Captain Jeremey Lizotte
Hello, my name is Jeremey Lizotte.
A North Idaho native, I grew up overlooking Lake Pend Oreille from the small town of Hope, Idaho. When I was a boy, I would sneak away to the lake and play in its waters. My time on the lake as a child left a lasting impression, and as I grew older, I knew that this was the place that I wanted to call home. I purchased a houseboat in 1999 and have used it as a home base ever since. In addition to the houseboat I have always had a skiff for running about the lake.
I am smiling when I’m on a boat.
Either on the skiff or the houseboat, I have taken many friends—and friends of friends—out on the lake. I love sharing the excitement and awe that the lakes invokes.
In 2007, I spent six weeks in New Zealand and experienced my first water taxi ride. Shortly after that trip, an idea was born—a taxi and tour service for Lake Pend Oreille. This service is not only designed for tourists but also for locals wishing to get out on the water. My goal is to increase access and enjoyment of a lake that is in my blood.
Milton’s Wake is a 24 foot Skipjack, built for big water with heavy fiberglass construction. The vessel comfortably accommodates six paying passengers and is equipped with all the safety equipment required by U.S. Coast Guard.
I named the boat after my grandfather Milton, who pulled me out of school in the 5th grade in order to experience a three week stretch of his annual trip along the Gulf of Mexico. More than anything else, this trip sparked my passion for boats and it gives me much joy to commemorate my grandfather Milton in this way.
