Bryan and Patti are an adventurous couple with a flair for creating fun, active charter experiences for guests while maintaining a high level of service. Hailing from sunny Jupiter FL, this team spent their youth enjoying year round outdoor activities like surfing, fishing and diving. Bryan and Patti met after high school and have been inseparable since; seeking out new adventures and challenges. Their first major move as a couple was to the sleepy Caribbean island of St. Croix. It was in the US Virgin Islands that Bryan and Patti envisioned the dream of running their own charter yacht together. Bryan found began work as a deckhand on a busy yacht, exploring the BVI and doing everything he could to learn the ins and outs of the charter industry. During this time, Patti worked on island, serving, bartending and falling in love with island life. After a year they moved back to the states to work on making their vision of running boats together a reality. It was during a road trip through the lower 48 that the plan was solidified.
Once back in Florida, Bryan obtained his 100 ton captains license and continued his yachting career working on a number of different boats on the East Coast as well as in the Bahamas and Caribbean. Bryan rounded out his nautical resume by earning a PADI divemaster certification, which he will put to work, leading guests on guided dives. Bryan’s positive attitude, combined with his love of the underwater world is infectious and will leave guests yearning for more.
While Bryan was gaining the experience needed to become a first rate captain, Patti continued to thrive in the service industry at a high volume, fast paced restaurant, where she perfected hospitality skills like service, bartending and kitchen management. It was also around this time that Patti joined Bryan in the world of yachting working as a chef. Patti’s culinary style reflects her time as a child spent watching her grandmother make simple, healthy, home cooked meals. She strives to use fresh locally sourced ingredients in all of her meal preparation.
Following a few years spent cultivating the skillsets, certifications and confidence required to run a 5-star yachting operation, Bryan and Patti were quickly offered the opportunity to run Scuba Doo 450. They are easy going and adventurous, with years of yachting and hospitality experience between the two of them. Guests will enjoy active but relaxing days, fresh food and 5-star hospitality from this dream team!
