The Jacksonville Commodores League, Inc. (JCL) was incorporated as a non-profit corporation by a group of business leaders approximately 30 years ago. The primary purpose of the organization was, and still is, to promote the industrial and economic welfare of the City of Jacksonville by entertaining visiting dignitaries and businessman with boat cruises on the St. Johns River. The boats utilized for these cruises are privately owned yachts and are operated and crewed by members of the club.
The JCL usually meets once a month for a business meeting and lunch to enjoy speakers from local business and government organizations about subjects that affect Jacksonville, pleasure boating and the St. Johns River. The JCL has approximately 60 members and is managed and organized by a Board of Directors and a number of committees.
