Current USCG 50 Ton Master, Commercial Tow and Near Coastal Endorsement Licenses. First Aid / CPR Certified. TWIC Card certified. In the 26 years of my boating experience, I’ve spent the bulk of my time operating in the waters off Southern California from the Channel Islands down to Northern Baja including all the Offshore Islands especially Catalina.

I am a non-smoking, fun, honest and knowledgeable Captain with a passion of the sea like no other. As proof of this my son’s middle name is “ Marlin.” My number one priority is the safety of my passengers and will always take care of the vessel as it was my own. I am available for all aspects of "Personal Instruction" with your new vessel. My professional services always provide a fun and great learning experience for all involved. I have been involved in many different fishing tournaments in the past years ranging from major marlin tournaments such as the Lahaina Jackpot Tournament in Maui, Hawaii, to the local halibut derbies here in Southern California. I have acted as main angler to head captain. I truly love just being out on the ocean and enjoying all it has to offer.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Recommendations and references provided upon request.

Semi-Retired Captain Seeks Free-Lance Positions

I seek boat owners with “power” vessels sized 50 ft. to 100 ft. that are interested in hiring me on a “Free Lance” basis as captain for three (3) to fourteen (14) trips cruising, fishing, or diving throughout south Florida, Bahamas, and the Caribbean. I possess “full charge” competency and value the responsibilities of being in command. Boat owners, guests, and charter parties quickly recognize my professionalism in planning, provisioning, every day operation, and proficiency in making repairs, resourcefulness, and general vessel management.

I have held a U.S. Coast Guard Master 100 Ton license for over 35 years and have been captain on “power” vessels in size up to 85 ft. During my career, as yacht captain, I have cruised throughout the east coast of Florida to Key West and most of the Bahamas. I do not smoke and rarely inbib in alcohol.

I am an avid PADI certified scuba diver and have exposed many boat owners and guests to divingwith snorkel, and third lung to catch lobsters and shoot fish with an Hawaiian Sling. I consider myself to be presentable in appearance and personal dress/hygiene, sufficiently educated (MBA in Management) and well-rounded to carry conversation, coupled with a sense of humor to entertain. I look forward to demonstrating my knowledge, skills, and abilities as your captain.

I am a successful sport fishing captain catching pelagic and bottom fish, deep water electric reel fishing for golden tilefish, yellow-eye snapper, queen snappers, assorted groupers, and can site and catch bonefish. Some of the most enjoyable fishing may be with light tackle utilizing chum to attract bottom fish including yellowtail, various snappers and groupers.
