Though born in Virginia, Shepherd lived all over the USA with his family which helped program that wanderlust into his soul at an early age. He served 4 years in the US Navy before emigrating to Tasmania where he managed several bars and restaurants. During his time in Australia he became a Dive Instructor working on a live-aboard dive operation on the Great Barrier Reef. There he earned enough hours at sea to earn his Captain’s License and heard tales of ‘pretty white’ boats in the Mediterranean. Living in the UK and Antibes for several years he worked his way up from deckhand on large 65m+ Motor yachts in the Med to Mate and then Captain on yachts throughout Greece, Turkey, Egypt and the Caribbean. Today you will find Captain Shepherd settled with his British Wife and daughter in Florida.
Though he is always ready to take off to pastures new to share his passion for the Ocean with his guests.
