Born and bred in the sun-soaked landscapes of south Florida, Captain Jamey discovered his deep-seated passion for the water through years of diving and fishing and a lifetime of boating.
A decade ago, he earned his captain’s licence while charter fishing in the rugged terrains of Alaska. This marked the beginning of a maritime journey that would see him manning vessels in the pristine Alaskan wilderness and navigating the waters of south Florida as a hired captain.
Jamey transitioned into yacht management, immersing himself in the world of larger vessels. Starting as a deckhand in an Alaskan charter boat company, he leveled up to a 50-ton license with subsequent years spent honing his skills in yachting in south Florida - culminating in a 100-ton master's license five years ago.
Prior to joining Good People Marine, Captain Jamey served as a seasonal captain in both Alaska and south Florida. Upon settling in Charleston, he balanced his time as a server at Magnolias while launching his own venture, Stoked Party Boats.
As a captain, Jamey is known for his unwavering reliability, punctuality, and extensive knowledge of vessels. His philosophy on the water revolves around prioritizing safety and continuous learning - leaving any ego on the dock. Whether navigating the challenging Alaskan wilderness or cruising the azure waters of the Bahamas, Captain Jamey is dedicated to providing guests with a wonderful and unforgettable experience on every voyage.
Jamey joined the Good People Marine ranks in 2023 and is available for fishing charters and captain for hire services.
