Frank & Denise
Captain Frank has led a diverse and different life. He was born on a ranch in the Nevada high desert. Before he could walk, he was riding horses. He spent his teenage and early adult years riding the range, mending fences, breaking horses, and tending to cattle while working as a wrangler on local ranches.
All that experience with ropes and lines came in handy when Frank decided to learn how to sail. His learning experiences occurred mostly in the San Francisco Bay. However, after doing some sailing in Ft Lauderdale, Florida, he decided the warmer weather was better, and when an opportunity arose for him to Captain a yacht from Peru into the Caribbean, he jumped at it. He has been a successful charter boat Captain since 2011. He loves meeting and sharing the island experience with guests. He holds his USCG 100T Masters License BVI Boatmaster and STCW-95.
Although born and raised in the desert, Frank has always been called to the sea. He began scuba diving in 1989 and fell in love with the sport. He spent several years diving the West and Northwest coast from Washington to Southern California. Frank has been a PADI professional for over 25 years, and was a Dive Master and Assistant instructor prior to acquiring his PADI O/W Scuba Instructor certification in 2008 in Kona, Hawaii where he trained many people to dive. Frank is a natural born teacher and can help just about anyone feel at ease in the water...read more
Denise is a true Island Girl, having been born in the Azores. Her parents had her in the ocean before she could crawl. Denise first learned to sail in a pond in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and then much later in life in the San Francisco Bay. Longing for warmer water, she spent time sailing in Florida. Denise also spent time as First Mate on a charter boat in Kona, Hawaii and loved taking her guests to swim and play with wild dolphins.
Denise became a NAUI Scuba Instructor in 2005 and a PADI Scuba Instructor in 2008. She has been diving for over 25 years. Diving is her passion. She has a well-trained eye for finding things underwater that most people don’t see. Her greatest pleasure in life is sharing the underwater experience with guests whether it is on SCUBA or during her famous snorkel safaris.
When she is not in the water with guests, she spends her time as chef and hostess making sure guests are well-cared for. Cooking is her other passion and believes it is a form of meditation. She provides a diverse menu specializing in fresh, local ingredients and has always received great praises for the meals she prepares. She is more than happy to accommodate special dietary requests. Denise also holds a USCG 100 Ton Master License and STCW-95, as well as several ASA certificates.
Frank and Denise are an amazing team. They have sailed extensively through the Caribbean chain, having sailed their previous boat from the west coast of Peru through the Panama Canal, into South America, and up the Caribbean Chain. They have enjoyed many adventures and can’t wait to share your next one with you.
