Q&A with Captain Rob, Owner

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
When I was in Vietnam with the US Army. For relaxation, special services provided sailboats for us to use. When I returned from overseas and started managing Sears stores, it was a great therapy to get out on the water.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Watching the faces of my customers change after a lesson or rental. They are so much more relaxed. It is like a mental massage for them. It is a great stress-buster to get out on the water.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?
Being part of a class and enjoying in the team-building fun.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
My dad was a naval commander. I was born in the Oakland Naval Yard. I built my first boat when I was 8 years old. My wife and I both hold a 50 ton US Coast Guard Sailing Captains License. We have spent 150 days in a 25-foot sailboat circumnavigating Florida. I love the peace being on the water brings.

I bought this groupon as a birthday gift for my dad. It was a great time! Scheduling and communicating with Captain Rob was easy and convenient. Captain Judy was our instructor and she was great! Everything was very organized, timely, and professional. The whole experience was exciting and informative. We learned a lot and had a great time. We will definitely become repeat customers!
