Bunky's has been sailing the open seas since purchasing his first charter boat in 1978. Naming it after his wife, Kathy, he used that boat to catch oysters that he subsequently sold in their marina shop. Over time, his fleet grew to 3 charter boats and 16 rental boats. With more boats, Captain Bunky's able to share his love of the water with his community and one of the ways he does this is by inviting people to try their hand at captaining a ship for a day. Tourists can also come aboard his 40- to 47-foot vessels to indulge in an afternoon of cruising, crabbing, or fishing for selkies on the Patuxent River or Chesapeake Bay.
