About the Captain

Meet Captain Doug

Being a professional yacht captain isn’t just a retirement plan for me; it’s a profound and deeply ingrained passion that has been a part of my life since I was 8 years old. From the moment I set foot on my dads boat, I felt an undeniable connection to open water and the thrill of navigating it. The responsibility of ensuring the safety and enjoyment of passengers, the mastery of maritime skills, and the constant pursuit of perfection in seamanship – these are not just tasks but the very essence of my professional identity.

Being a yacht captain allows me to curate unforgettable experiences for those on board. It’s not just about the boat; it’s about crafting moments that linger in the hearts of my passengers long after the anchor has been dropped. This profound connection to the water, coupled with the ability to create lasting memories for others, is what makes being a professional yacht captain more than just a job – it’s a lifelong dedication to a calling that resonates with the very core of who I am.
