Robert - Captain, sailor, commercial diver, mechanical engineer. I remember my first viewing of The Under Sea World of Jacque Cousteau and knew the sea was for me. I built my first kayak when I was 14 and have been exploring waterways ever since. As Cousteau said “The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” So true! Active in most sports, and travelling the world have been my greatest assets. Mechanical Engineering and a variety of trade positions have filled my working career. Being aboard Ocean Villa allows me to exercise these trades to ensure she is in excellent condition. Ocean Villa offers an exceptional quality of life with adventure around every tack for us and our guest shipmates. Sailing to hundreds of islands and anchorages in the waters around the pacific northwest, with high tides, fast currents, and steep seas that can blast through the straights, require skilled seamanship. This I have developed and embraced along side my first mate Shannon who came aboard in 2011. I immediately taught her to sail, she learned with enthusiasm and has become an excellent first mate. She is also a good cook and wonderful hostess. Since purchasing our boat in 2013 Shannon and I have been in Baja California on the Pacific Coast and in the Gulf of CaliforniaSea of Cortez. This has been an experience of a lifetime for both of us and we always look forward to exploring the islands and sharing our live-aboard experience with our guests.
