WELCOME to NAUTICAL HOSTING, LLC
Captain Bill has had a passion for boating for his entire life, having grown up on Barnegat Bay in NJ.
His experiences include sailing a sailfish (in the national championships), sailing a wide variety of sailboats, handling a ski boat, or captaining up to 52 ft charter sailboats in the British Virgin Islands and the Grenadines.
His 40 + years on the water will give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy your cruise.
While Suzy has not been a boater as long as Bill, she has quickly become his Skipper and knows her boat exceptionally well. Growing up in Michigan she was a water skier throughout her childhood. In Oregon, she was first mate aboard her 34' Bayliner.
Suzy enjoys catering to the guests and making sure they are having a most memorable cruise.
Skipper Suzy is the owner of Nautical Hosting so if you have any particular request, be sure to ask her.
