I came to Hilton Head Island as a tourist more than 18 years ago and never left. Shortly after my first summer of working on the water there was no doubt, I was hooked and fell in love with the beauty and nature of Hilton Head Island and the waters surrounding it. Having worked for other companies for many years, I have decided to branch out on my own and start my own business, giving me the ability to share my knowledge and expertise with you and your family. I am a United States Coast Guard licensed Captain, who respects local laws and nature preservation. Certified in CPR and First aid the safety of my passengers is something that I hold in high regard. I am excited to share a few things that can only be seen in low country waters! Welcome aboard!
