Captain: Casey Laaro
As a prior captain of historic sailing vessels, Casey brings a wealth of maritime history and a unique perspective to your cruising experience. Casey’s passion for boating began as a young student participating in a sail training program aboard the 137ft sailing vessel Denis Sullivan of his hometown, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing from that exposure, Casey has since enjoyed 11 years of magnificent sailing, traversing the East and West coasts of the U.S., as well as the Great Lakes, and Caribbean.
Throughout his adventures, Casey has cultivated a love of sharing exceptional sailing adventures with his guests. Casey strives to give each guest an island experience catered to their personal style. Whether you like a tropical adventure, with an active exploration of the islands and their culture, or a more relaxed and isolated beach retreat, Casey is here to guide you to the best destinations. He enjoys a broad appreciation for various cultures, experiences, and cuisines, and is excited to share such pleasures with you.
Whether he is firing off a 50 pound cannon during a historic reenactment, or a flame grilled captain’s burger for your charter, Casey is sure to make a booming impact on your trip! With his 100 ton USCG license, STCW certificate, and witty humor, Casey is ready to show your company all the relaxation and excitement of a sailing vacation in the beautiful Virgin Islands.
He and his wife, Angela look forward to providing your group with a sailing experience to touch your soul, just as the sea has touched theirs.
