Captain Jim and Captain Sherry have been traveling, sailing, diving and snorkeling together for the past 8 years. They spent 15 months sailing from Kemah, Texas across the Gulf of Mexico and island-hopping the Caribbean chain from the Bahamas to St. Kitts where they learned to navigate the beautiful islands and have become experts at finding idyllic locations for their future guests to enjoy.

He spent the first 25 years of his corporate life as an engineer building ocean-going vessels. He finished his career as Director of Project Management. He has his 100-ton USCG Masters License and is a PADI certified divemaster.
Sherry is from Houston, Texas. She retired after 23 years as a Legal Secretary and Administrative Assistant. Raised in the south, she learned the love of cooking and southern hospitality at an early age. She is at home in the galley, mixes a mean cocktail and looks forward to taking you to some of the best diving and snorkeling spots to be found. She has her 100-ton USCG Masters License and is a PADI certified open water diver.
Traveling the globe extensively and sailing the Caribbean has given Jim and Sherry a knowledge and passion for meeting new people and experiencing different cultures.
