Crew through Summer 2021

Captain: Harold Artrip
Harold is an avid skydiver, scuba diver, fixed wing and helicopter pilot, and on multiple trips to East Africa, he searches for adventure everywhere he goes.

Even at a young age, Harold found adventure as he started his private yachting industry in Key West where he worked for several families over the course of 15 years. His summers were spent in New England and his winters were spent in the Caribbean and Mexico. Harold continued his Captain exposure in Hawaii as a Master of Hawaii’s nicest sailing catamarans. He holds not only his US Coast Guard 100 ton sail endorsed masters license for 30 years, but also the Royal Yachting Association’s Yachtmaster Offshore license. More recently, after 3 years in Hawaii, Harold chose to move to the Virgin Islands to be closer to his 17 year old daughter who resides in Florida.

Throughout his sailing and charter career, with an extensive knowledge of many oceans, Harold makes sure that his guests have a wonderful and safe time, no matter where on the sea they go! With an ability to lead and prioritize guest experiences, Harold is the perfect guide for your upcoming adventure!
