To say that Captain Brian Mayer is an expert on the sea is a bit of an understatement. As a boy, he grew up on the water, fishing and watching his father command vessels around Chesapeake Bay. He then went on to earn dual bachelor degrees in biology and marine science from Coastal Carolina University and obtain his scuba certification. Now he works as a 100 ton master captain at Marauder Charters, where he pilots leisurely cruises with picturesque views.
During these trips, Captain Brian points out wildlife and happily answers any questions guests have about the area while his 42-foot sportfish yacht zips across the blue waters. Guests can take in the views on a spacious platform while sipping BYOB drinks kept cold in the yacht's refrigerator. The fully-furnished yacht also boasts private bathrooms, fresh-water sinks, heating and air conditioning, and iPod hookups, ensuring that guests stay comfortable during their time aboard.
The captain takes the yacht out on fishing expeditions, as well. He particularly enjoys teaching younger people and families fishing tips, such as how to pair live bait with spinning rods to catch large schools of rockfish and that if you really want to catch a big fish, you must bait the hook with a full spiral ham.
