Captain Rick has been around boats his entire life. When Rick came to the Virgin Islands in 2006, he left behind a colorful career in the northeast as the Captain of many different types of boats.
Upon receiving a degree from The University of Rhode Island in Fisheries and Marine Technology, he worked aboard commercial fishing boats out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. After earning his U.S.C.G. Masters License, Rick went on to Captain large fishing “head” boats in New Jersey. He also captained tug and environmental boats in New York Harbor.
After an adventurous wintertime Atlantic crossing in a 37' sailboat from New Jersey to St. John, Rick discovered a new world that was both Caribbean and American. “At first I was here to deliver a boat, maybe see the Cays, and go home. But after sailing around to such amazing places as Jost Van Dyke and Norman Island, I knew I wanted to find a way to live and work here.”
Rick ran powerboat day charters out of St. Thomas and St. John for other charter companies for four years. In 2010 he took his next step, and began running his own charter business. “We love taking people to all the places they've heard of and also to some of the hidden places we've discovered during our adventures throughout the islands”.
Imagine enjoying your carefree time and unforgettable experience in the Caribbean, with Rick guiding you to one wonderful place after another. He looks forward to you enjoying yourself on the water soon.
