From a young age, Capt Chris loved boating on lakes and the Atlantic off the coast of Maine, where he grew up. Chris moved to sunny South Florida to not only get away from the brutal winters but mostly for his love of the water. He started out freelancing on yacht deliveries as a first mate and engineer for Ocean Alexander Yachts. He quickly decided that he wanted to pursue his captain’s license, going to Chapman’s School of Seamanship, where he obtained his 100-ton Captain’s License along with a towing endorsement and STCW-95. He then upgraded his license to 200-tons.
His first captain’s gig was an 87’ Broward traveling from Chicago, IL down through the Mighty Mississippi, continuing to the Florida Keys and navigating twenty-nine locks to end up in Boca Raton, FL where the boat berthed for the winter. He has traveled the entire east coast of the United States from Bar Harbor, ME to the Florida Keys including all of the ICW along with the Dismal Swamp. He has also traveled the entire Okeechobee Waterway to the Gulf of Mexico into to Galveston, TX but his most passionate travels are the ones throughout the Bahamas.
Currently, he is the full time Captain on a beautiful 100’ Ocean Alexander and really enjoys showing the owner and guests a wonderful and memorable experience. In his free time, he enjoys hunting alligators, fishing, snorkeling, diving (certified nitrox), grilling and riding his Harley.
Saide grew up in Maine hiking, snowmobiling, ice fishing and snowboarding. Her love of the water started early as she lived near a lake where she and her friends would boat and swim during the short summertime.
She moved to Florida in her early twenties to pursue a new career path not knowing that it would lead her to Capt Chris and thus marrying the love of her life. Joining him in the yachting industry, she got her first job on an 87’ Broward traveling from Chicago, IL to Boca Raton, FL. After her first trip, she made up her mind- being on the water is what she really wanted to do. This first yacht trip took her down through the middle of the country on the rivers including the Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee and the Mississippi rivers to the Gulf of Mexico and Florida Keys, navigating 29 locks to end up in Boca Raton, FL where the boat berthed for the winter. She has traveled the entire east coast of the United States from Bar Harbor, ME to the Florida Keys including all of the ICW along with the entire Okeechobee Waterway into the Gulf of Mexico traveling to Galveston, TX. Although Saide enjoyed all her travels throughout the US, she feels drawn to the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas.
She went to the Chapman’s School of Seamanship and got her STCW-95 and is currently the Mate on a 100’ Ocean Alexander.
Saide enjoys fishing, spearfishing, snorkeling, painting and especially cooking.
