Séamus (pronounced ‘Shaymus’) is from Dublin, and learned to sail at a young age with The Royal Irish Yacht Club. Completing University studies in Nautical science, he then went on to study Navigation with the Irish Navy, serving four years as a Commissioned Officer. Afterwards he threw on his backpack and explored many exotic parts of the world, from France to Nepal, to include a tour of Asia. Séamus has now travelled to over 50 countries, pursuing his passions of underwater photography, videography, snowboarding and mountaineering.
Upon returning home to Ireland, Séamus continued to develop his maritime skills with a two year period on the crew of the Dublin Lifeboat, where he was highly trained by the RNLI medical emergency response unit. Now, with many years maritime experience and over 100,000 miles sailed, including sail training Challenge 72’s in Scotland, 3 tall-ships in Europe, Volvo Ocean Race 70’s, and super yachts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, he has 11 trans-Atlantic crossings completed, and 3 Pacific crossings including 5 as captain.
He was professionally employed on some of the world’s most prestigious super-sailing yachts up to 85 meters, including Parsifal 3, Silenco, Sybaris and the World’s biggest ketch, Aquijo, on which he sailed around Cape Horn and into the Pacific while making videos for his boss. Séamus has over ten years super-yacht charter experience, including long-term charters up to three months long. He has received numerous sailing awards including the Commodore’s prize of the RIYC for youth sailing achievement, Sovereign’s cup wins, and Super-yacht regatta wins of the Perini and Millennium cups.
As a fitness instructor and qualified PADI dive master, he is standing by to lead snorkeling excursions and arrange dives with the best dive operators.
