Captain Bryan Carson is here to stay! We are happy to have the expertise and knowledge of Bryan Carson. He has traveled the world over, by sailboat, of course, and has made his home in Rincon. He comes to us at Katarina with over 30,000 miles of offshore experience and years of chartering experience both from Kauai to Costa Rica. He is a USCG certified Master Captain with a love of adventure, and a contagious laugh. He is happy to share his knowledge of the sea with every guest aboard the Katarina.
Captain Bryan is also an author, orator, talented musician and surfer. While in Rincon look for his band, Sugar Train that plays at local bars and restaurants. All his songs are original! Many of the locals around Rincon Puerto Rico consider him a living legend due to the wonderful lifestyle he has created and how he helps those around him meet the same life goals that he perfected long ago.Dave Berry comes to us from the hills of Appalacia. A former roadie for Ted Nuget as well as back up dancer from the populare 90′s TV series, “In Living Color” Dave’s skills are truly unique. His hobbies include underwater ping-pong, dumpster racing, and using the Google. You can trust your in good hands as Dave is an NRA certified professional cat hunter.”
That being said, the truth is that Dave is a Washington DC firefighter on leave to complete his Captains license. He is a long time lifeguard in South Bethany, DE with all the current life-saving certifications that come with being a fire fighter and lifeguard. He is a skilled waterman and surfer, and has spend many years here in his younger years as a surf instructor. Dave is reliable, fun, and the hardest worker on the water. He will make your sail a good time even if he has to hurt himself doing it. We are currently looking into getting him a sponsorship with Neosporin.
