Name: Tyler Harris
Tyler was born and raised in Morehead City NC, where his family and ancestors were some of the first 18th century settlers on the outer banks of NC after becoming shipwrecked in the dangerous waters of the Atlantic. Tyler is the 3rd generation in his family to be a captain. His great grandfather was a charter/commercial captain who was an instrumental part in the birth of the sport-fishing and boatbuilding industry. Growing up near the water, he spent a lot of time on and around boats. In middle school, he and his father decided to build a small 18’ skiff together. At the young age of 15, Tyler’s first job on the water was the second mate onboard a 46’ wooden hull charter boat based out of Atlantic Beach, NC. It was then when he began logging hours and sea time to obtain his first US coast guard captains license and obtained his first UCCG credential 3 months before his high school diploma. After graduation, Tyler moved to Orlando Florida to attended Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI) where he honed his outboard and marine diesel skills. Shortly thereafter, he relocated to Ft. Lauderdale FL and began his yachting career as a deckhand on a 110’ motor yacht. Since then, his travels have taken him thousands of miles across Alaska, all of the pacific coast of North America, 5 Panama Canal transits, eastern and western Caribbean. Tyler’s true passion and favorite place to take charter guests is the Bahamas. In the Bahamas, Tyler knows the secret treasure spots to fish, spearfish, snorkel and experience the adventures and beauty of these incredible waters and the islands. Guests will enjoy a combination of adventure on land and sea. Share in island festivals, restaurants with local flavors and sunsets, hideaway beaches and so much more. When he is not yachting or fishing, Tyler enjoys spending time at home with his wife and 2 kids and coaching his son’s youth baseball team. He also enjoys spending time on his airboat in the Florida Everglades.
Name: Michael Angelo Lagonia II
Angelo was born in Staten Island NY and shortly thereafter moved to Memphis where he was raised. Navigation has always been a family endeavor. His father is a pilot, but Angelo leaned more toward the allure of boats. The seas sound and smell along with swimming, photographing, fishing, surfing, diving, and navigating has always left the most meaningful memories. Angelo attended Lyman Ward Military Academy for high school and excelled in Academics and a fierce love for baseball; he was pitcher. He graduated the 2nd in command and achieved the highest rank possible. When he wasn’t at school you could find him with his father hanging out at the airport cleaning their Beechcraft baron twin engine airplane and watching the planes land and take off. The time with his father was well spent because Angelo’s engine knowledge makes him a valuable member on Hot Pursuit. After high school Angelo attended Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado and studied business. After college he worked in the real estate business selling mortgages until he realized there were more exciting and rewarding opportunities. He sold his house and car in 2009 and moved to Central America, Utila, Honduras, in 2010 to begin his dive career. He loved the idea of traveling, exploring as much ocean as possible, and breathing underwater. Angelo has taught SCUBA in Honduras, Panama, Israel, and Thailand. Angelo believes that being near the ocean makes us happier, healthier, reduces stress, and brings peace. Making bubbles is Angelo’s passion and he loves taking photos of his adventures as well as our guests! Angelo looks forward to assisting you with your underwater adventures! Yacht chartering has combined all of his passions into one. He began as a deck/stew/crew chef and quickly worked his way up to deckhand, boswain, and then mate. Angelo is currently living in Ft Lauderdale and pursuing his captain’s license.

Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
