Captain: Gus Bolanos
Captain Gus was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the yachting capital of the world. He spent much of his childhood in Bimini, Bahamas with his grandparents learning how to fish, dive, and navigate small boats through the local waters. He has always had a connection with the sea and was an avid sailor and boater all throughout his teenage years
When he graduated boarding school in 2000 he went to sea working for the Seafarers International Union (SIU) as an Ordinary Seaman on ocean going ships. After several years of hard work and great experiences in the SIU he started working on sport fishing boats and yachts in South Florida cruising through the Bahamas, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Central and South America and eventually settled in St. Thomas, in the USVI in the Caribbean,
Gus has worked on boats, yachts, and ships for 19 years and has logged over 20,000 nautical miles at sea; he holds a US Coast Guard 200 Ton Master License.
