    Our sailing day with Ocean was the highlight of our time on St Thomas. He was incredible!! Ocean made us feel right at home on his beautiful boat, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and the ocean in general. We can’t thank him enough for such an amazing experience!

    Ocean was really accommodating and knowledgeable and the sail was great.
    The boat is really beautiful and Ocean has great history and stories. I do think that they website needs to be updated, the rates are wrong, there is no crew but Ocean, the time was shorter than the website listed, and there was no buffet lunch. None of those this were deal breakers and Ocean relayed the information via correspondence, but I would have preferred to have the knowledge up front.

Ocean Moana Taapuna Swienckowski Petersen was born on this classic wooden yacht on the island of Tahiti in the South Pacific. The Petersen family was in the process of circumnavigating the globe. They continued their exploration of the South and North Pacific, until they settled for eight years on a deserted atoll in the Marshall Islands. While there, his parent’s interest in marine biology led them to develop an aquaculture farm cultivating giant clams. During Ocean’s years on the clam farm, he occupied his time by mastering all the water sports available to him. By the age of one, Ocean was swimming, windsurfing with his father, and running barefoot on the coral rubble that was his environment.Three years later, Ocean was carrying his own spear gun and fishing on his own terms. He became fearless in the water. When he was eight, Ocean and his parents continued sailing through Micronesia, the Philippines, Borneo, Malaysia and eventually Thailand. It was here that Ocean was given his first surfboard. He has been hooked ever since. From then on, his only desire was to find the most challenging waves to hone his skills on. In Africa, Ocean surfed many of the countless coves and point breaks from the coast of Tanzania to the shores of South Africa. Many of the surf spots were located in shark infested waters where on average, one surfer would get attacked every month. When the yacht arrived in the Caribbean, Ocean left his home of seventeen years to pursue his own life and career as a captain. At 17 he qualified for his 100 Ton US Coast Guard Captain’s License. Now Ocean captains charter yachts around the US and British Virgin Islands, while always keeping an eye out for the perfect wave.
