Captain Roy has spent his entire life on the water working in the maritime industry, from building boats to captaining yachts and racing sailboats. Roy was born and raised on the East coast, where he gained his love of sailing from his Dad going up and down the Hudson River. Roy then felt the pull of the West coast and decided to attend University of Washington, where he earned an Electrical Engineering degree. He spent his early career working in corporate America, but quickly decided being on the water and providing guests memorable experiences was his calling. After getting his 100 ton license, the now Captain Roy, started his own successful whale watching business in the San Juan islands, of the Pacific Northwest.. He then expanded the business to include a marine adventure camp and Inn also in the San Juan islands. On a trip with friends, Roy and his family were introduced to the Virgin Islands many years ago, and it was love at first sight. Within a year, Captain Roy and his young family moved to the Virgin Islands and he focused on providing guests day charters throughout the 60+ islands and cays of the Virgin Islands. Based on much encouragement and feedback from many of his guests, Captain Roy and his partner Ann launched Suite Life Yachting onboard a 92' luxury motor yacht. Captain Roy holds his U.S. Coast Guard 200 ton captain's license and is pleased to take you safely yachting throughout the Virgin lslands. As a resident of the Virgin Islands for almost 20 years, Roy is able to provide a truly "local" experience from introducing guests to many of the infamous locals to the treasured "off the grid" destinations few know about.
