Guy Harvey HAWG!!
If you are passing through Davie (in South Florida), then plan to stop by the flagship store for the World Headquarters of Guy Harvey Inc., and be prepared to see a full array of marine-related artwork. From Guy Harvey t-shirts, to beach towels and even iron patio furniture, it's all here. Memorabilia from Dr. Guy Harvey's achievements are framed and on the wall for visitors to view. Some interesting facts about Dr. Harvey include that he is originally from Jamaica, but currently resides in Grand Cayman. Guy's parents were both accomplished anglers and they introduced him to fishing at a young age. His wife's name is Gillian and they have two kids, Jessica and Alex. Guy's favorite fish is the blue marlin, and favorite sports include water polo, scuba diving and fishing. Back on land Guy likes the shooting sports and birdwatching. Guy's favorite medium is watercolor but he is well versed in sketching and photography. Guy is a marine biologist with a PhD in fish biology, and he founded the Guy Harvey Research Institute in 1999 and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation in 2008. Dr. Harvey has said that it takes cash to care about about the oceans, that's why a percentage of customer purchases goes to benefit conservation work. While in the store pick up the Responsible Seafood Guide that is available, to promote the sustainable seafood initiative. There is lots of merchandise to see inside the World Headquarters store including Guy Harvey coffee, tervis tumblers, women's clothing, prints, pillows, technical shirts , books and so much more. If you can't get there but wish to order some of these items, you can call Maria in the store at 954-581-0073. She is very helpful, and she especially likes the sound of a southern accent! Many thanks to the staff at the HQ for giving me a tour of their offices while providing a deeper understanding of their mission.
