Our Professional Captains & Crew
So, let’s meet Captain Sean McCarthy! Sean is a long time native of Fernandina and of the surrounding waters of Amelia Island. Born in Gloucester Massachusetts, he moved to Fernandina at the age of 7 and grew up surfing, fishing, boating, and playing music. Captain Sean has been boating his whole life and holds a 100-ton Masters USCG license. Sean has previously captained a large private M/Y for the owners and their families for several years which took him through the Bahamas, Mexico and up and down the east coast of the U.S. He is also a Nashville Singer/Songwriter /Recording artist (Check out SeanMcCarthyBand.com) – with his knowledge of local history and unique storytelling, you will be sure to have an awesome day on the water with Captain Sean.
Born in Pascagoula and raised in Gautier on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Stephanie loves the coastal life! Married for 32+ years, Stephanie and Tim have been weaving their way into the fabric of Fernandina for 30+ years. Holding a bachelor degree in Business / Real Estate and a masters degree in International Hospitality and Tourism Management, Stephanie spent most of her life in the hospitality and service industries. Her favorite thing to do is "Eat and Greet!" Gumbo is her specialty, and this area produces the best shrimp in the world - a must in her recipe! Chef Michael makes a really great gumbo too, so if you're in town, be sure to catch the crew at Kitchen 251! And don't miss the etouffee served over fried catfish! Absolutely delicious! If you make it to Gautier, MS, you MUST try the Cornerstone Restaurant! Stephanie's cousins own and operate this local landmark!
A music lover to the core, Tim believes everything is better if there is music involved, especially live music. He has loved the live music scene in Fernandina Beach for the last 30+ years...and it's even better if you can get a private set on the water with Captain Sean! Tim is also a happy man when entertaining, whether it is whipping something up in the kitchen or on the grill, playing bartender and/or DJ for family and friends! When he's not living that dream, he spends his time in the real world serving small businesses as their part-time CFO and business consultant. He has a BS degree in Accounting from the University of South Carolina and is a licensed CPA. Between all this excitement, he is always looking for time to spend with his family...usually involving tasty tunes and great food.
