Father / Daughter Team!
Captian Sean grew up in beautiful sunny Southern California.
With a family rich with nautical and shipbuilding traditions, it was only natural for him to gravitate to the sea. Prior to discovering his love for the Virgin Islands, he gained valuable experience cruising and fishing the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez in Mexico.
Sean has a USCG 100 ton license and has worked dinner cruises, sightseeing tours, and towboats. He is a veteran of the US Marine Corps and served during Operation Desert Storm.
Sean is also the owner of "Empire March", the 27' power catameran in the Stormy Pirates Fleet.
Sean typically spends his days off playing in the water, diving for lobster and conch, fishing, or spending time with his wife, family, and island dog, Neptune.
