As a young boy growing up in New York, I spent countless hours in the water with a dolphin. The dolphin……. his name was Flipper, and I was Bud. Or was it Sandy? I don’t remember, that was a long time ago and those countless hours actually occurred in my imagination. But that exposure did increase my interest and awareness of marine mammals and fueled my love for all animals. Since then, I've had real life marine mammal encounters in many areas around the world, each and every encounter leaving me with a sense of amazement and gratitude. I have spent over 20 years as a boat captain, dive instructor, submersible pilot and tour guide in the Caribbean. My main focus is the safety and service of each and every guest. I am very excited to be a part of the Aquatic Adventures Team sharing with you the wonderment of the Silver Bank, Galapagos and other Aquatic Adventures for what many consider to be the adventures of a lifetime. I hope to see you soon.
