Karen Chadwick

Karen Chadwick is a devoted sentinel for the Silver, Ocklawaha, and St Johns rivers. She is often a witness and chronicler of the beauty, nuance, and degradation of the rivers.

Karen is a fine arts graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design. Captain Karen’s expertise in sculpture, carvings, renderings, painting, museum exhibit fabrications, history and navigation of the rivers has given us a renaissance expression of Florida past and present. Karen’s life like exhibit fabrications may be seen at the Silver River Museum.

Captain Karen has introduced many to the magic of the Silver, Ocklawaha, and St Johns rivers on her North Star Charter fleet. Her guided tours are educational and often provide seldom seen vistas of Florida waters and wildlife.

Karen has been a voice for Ocklawaha restoration for decades. Her art gives us glimpses of current river beauty and the legacy of centuries past.
