My name is Mike, I’m a licensed captain, instructor, retired naval officer, and Founder and President of Virginia Maritime Solutions. During my 21 year naval career I captained high speed small craft, led and trained diverse maritime teams, and had the unique pleasure to captain civilian sailboats, yachts, and powerboats. I served 51 months abroad in 26 countries, which provided tremendous opportunity for learning and growth, and serves as the foundation of my expertise. I enjoy sharing my passion for boating, nature, family, and I volunteer as a youth basketball coach and Virginia Boating Safety Instructor.
As your Charter Boat Captain and/or instructor, my goal is to provide a safe, fun, and memorable experience. I bring vast experience, local knowledge, and a vibrant sense of humor.
My desire is to share my diverse experience so others can take the helm.
