Pete Coccaro


It's amazing how fast time flies...I can't believe that we've been in business for 25 years! 


During that time we've seen a lot of changes in Charlotte County. The growth has been incredible and we've grown with it. We started in 1989 with just two owners and two employees working from our home, and today, 25 years later we have 15 employees and over 8000 sq ft of office, storage and garage space.
Nautilus Pools has been fortunate to win 21 awards for design - both state and international awards.We have also been voted the "Best Pool Contractor of Charlotte County" five times and have also been awarded the Charlotte Desoto Building Industry Association (CDBIA) Contractor of the year and CDBIA Sub-Contractor of the Year.

The 2400 swimming pools that we've built means many, many happy clients who are enjoying the fun and health benefits of having a private oasis in their backyard. Their own little piece of Paradise!

To celebrate we'll be having drawings for some great prizes throughout the year. Just download the Contest Registration Form and send it in to our office and we'll put your name in the "pool" (pun intended). Each quarter we'll draw a winner. First drawing is April 30th!

The first prize is a Pelican Cooler - a $300 value - for more info on the cooler click here. Good Luck! And thanks for all your support!
