From our perspective, there is nothing better than an over-qualified Captain when it comes to the yachting industry. Being responsible for you and your loved ones is a top order and taken very seriously at FantaSea. We love that our Captains have taken the extra step towards educating the yachting world both in Marina del Rey and outside of our very tranquil harbor. Captain Jeff Gunn, with FantaSea since 2008 not only teaches Advanced First Aid for the Maritime Institute and all our crew but has also started teaching safe boating for other yacht instructors for the National Safe Boating Council. Captain Joel Eve, with FantaSea since his first charter aboard the Dandeana, from Newport Beach to Catalina, September 13, 1988 completed the course in 2012. Captain Joel took the Close Quarters Boat Handling for Instructors Course at Lake Pleasant, Phoenix, Arizona in October. While all yacht charter companies have captains, very few (if any) have captains certified as instructors by NSBC.
For all our wedding couples, both Captain Jeff and Captain Joel as well as Captain Luis and Captain Juan Carlos are also able to perform wedding Ceremonies aboard the Dandeana, RegentSea and FantaSea One f0r a nominal fee of $250 ~ The perfect way to tie the Nautical Knot at FantaSea.
We congratulation Captain Jeff Gunn and Captain Joel on completing the NSBC Certification and appreciate the professionalism and dedication that they exude on a daily basis.
