"Somewhere" in the Historic Fishing Village of Cortez, Florida

About The Sea Hagg

Proprietor Jan Holman began her nautical voyage from Lake Erie where she crossed Ohio to the Ohio River and traveled down to the mighty Mississippi at Missouri. From there she traveled down the Mississippi to Louisiana and finally made her way to the sun drenched coastal beauty of Florida. She spent her 25 year voyage honing her distinctive talent and expertise in the areas of antiques, decorating, retail, advertising, and all things nautical. Her passion for the maritime led her to the historical fishing village of Cortez and the creation of her treasure-filled chandlery, affectionately named, The Sea Hagg.


The Sea Hagg has been featured on FOX-13’s Good Day Tampa Bay and One Tank Trips and was dubbed the “best store to finally go into that you’ve driven by a million times.”  After 25 years, the Sea Hagg closed it’s doors but Jan continues to gather art and artifacts, curate and design.  She is currently working on the SEA HAGG INN, located in Cortez, Florida.  Expected to be open late summer, 2023.  We can’t wait!
