Captain Simon grew up in Australia and was a qualified Carpenter and Joiner. His love for the water led him to a career change where he started as a Deckhand working for a tourism company on The Great Barrier Reef. After achieving his first Captain’s License (currently holds three) and a Dive Master certificate in 1993 he decided to travel the world.
Captain Simon’s 28+ year maritime career has given him the opportunity to work on vessels ranging from 50 to a 1,000 feet, and has cruised from French Polynesia to The Mediterranean and from Grenada to Nova Scotia.

Experienced with an easy going personality, Simon strives to provide a safe and memorable experience for all onboard whether it be a Charter or Private cruise.
