    Captain Jake’s Amity Boat Tours for me has been called my miracle mistake. I started working for Universal in June of 2008 at the earthquake attraction (which is now known as Disaster!) About six months later we recieved news that quake was closing and I was given the chance to head next door to the shark infested lake. I accepted. What I found waiting for me was an incredible experience.

    Jaws in my opinion is the one attraction that truly upholds universals motto of “ride the movies,” the experience always changes: depending on your skipper, the weather, season, and even time of day. Even in 2008 it was considered the elite place to work, but most people don’t want to put in the amount of work it entails to be one of Jake’s finest. Skippers can be called many things, most of them are true. They are a very unique, and very loyal group of people who will always be there to assist or lend a helping hand.

    The biggest thing I learned from JAWS was responsiblity: in most jobs being a minute late from a break or lunch has really no impact on any one else… However, at JAWS being a minute late means that the slippers behind you could be forced to go around again doing another show. Granted its only a five minute show, but doing it 40+ times a day at a despotic energy
