Born and raised in the East coast of Puerto Rico, Captain Francisco, “Paco” as most know him, has been sailing the Caribbean waters from an early age. Since 2008, he has been the Captain of charter vessels in locations such as the USVI, BVI, Bahamas, Mexico, and even New England.
Paco wears many hats as his maritime experience has taken him from sewing canvas sails, rigging, and fiberglass construction, to working onboard commercial tugs and barges, and performing offshore crossings ever since his early 20s. Sailing over 50,000 nautical miles over the years, he discovered one of his most fulfilling experiences as Captain onboard a 171 Tall Ship Schooner charter vessel. Since then, Paco has followed this career path further, seeking more intimate capacities where charters can be personalized to each group.
As a graduate from the University of South Florida and alway avid to learn more, he continually upgrades his maritime skills in attending the Maritime Professional Training Institute of Florida. His extreme interest in the wonderful world of sailing is reflected in his chartering service as Paco thrives off of sharing these experiences with guests who likewise dream of cruising in the Caribbean.
