I have been a boating-enthusiast for almost 20 years and 15 of those I’ve spent as a licensed captain for boat rentals. I possess my US Coast Guard OUPV license as well as the Bahamas captain license. I hail from the Islands of the Bahamas but call South Florida home! My captaining expertise includes both of these amazing boating regions, making me the ideal captain for your trip. Book a short boat rental or an extended trip with me as your captain and I will be thrilled to share my local knowledge with you and your crew!

I also worked with Jim McCormick Ski School as instructor in Tampa Florida. I am a PADI ADVANCED scuba diver and an International Game fish Association Billfish Judge.

Professional Background

In the 15 years that I have been a boat rental captain, I have been at the helm of boat rentals in the Bahamas and the waterways for South Florida. I am the perfect choice for boating adventures that might include: snorkeling, fishing, cruising or watersports.
