Operating in the Bahamas, Florida, East Coast of North America and the Caribbean
Chris began his venture into boating at a very young age growing up on Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia. His parents fueled his passion for the water which led him to own and operate several recreational vessels during his youth. Eventually, this evolved into a watersport/wakeboard instruction company during high school, and later to a fishing tour guide business. His college studies took him to North Carolina, but his boat joined him! Four years later, his calling pushed him to re-locate to Fort Lauderdale to further pursue his passion for the ocean. Chris holds a MCA 200 ton license, and various other certifications in safety, scuba diving, and first aid. Whether you are looking to tap into his knowledge of big game fishing, learn water sports for the first time or simply find a quaint location to explore and snorkel, he is enthusiastic in sharing his love for the ocean and his lifestyle of yachting. His dedication to safety and planning will set your mind at ease and allow you to truly enjoy your experience while on board!
I was born and raised on the coast of South Carolina by a southern family that instilled the true “Southern Hospitality” mentality in me from a young age. My family means the world to me. I went to College for Civil Engineering but I realized my love for adventure and the water would never allow me to enjoy that life. Luckily for me when I was 20 years old I found a career in Yachting and it was love at first sight. My extensive experience in the service industry and love for entertaining made it an easy transition. I’ve been very blessed with the experiences I’ve gained in this Industry including the 48 countries I’ve been able to explore. In the last 4 years of my 10-year career I’ve really focused on moving forward in my career and becoming a Captain. I currently have a 100ton USCG license and will be upgrading to a 200 ton within the next 3 months. A few hobbies of mine include surfing, free diving, spear fishing, golfing, hiking, exploring new cultures, and putting a smile on the face of others.
I grew up in Eastern Long Island, New York. My family owns a horse farm so I grew up riding every day and loving the farm life. I would love bringing the horses to the beach! Growing up in Long Island I couldn’t get enough of the water. Kayaking, fishing, boating, sailing, surfing, and just soaking up the sun on the beach. I love my hometown. Always working in restaurants serving and bartending on the water in the Hamptons, where all the motor yachts would dock taught me about a whole different industry. I love yachting! I love showing people a great time and giving them service that keeps a huge smile on their face. My goal while your family and friends are onboard is to make sure you have the vacation of a lifetime! Don’t feel shy to ask me anything. I am here to help in whatever you want and need. I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
