James B Davis
Captain James has worked on the water since he was a teen. He attended Maine Maritime Academy for Marine Engineering and began working charters in the Hamptons. After making the move to Miami, he expanded his knowledge of the Caribbean, especially the keys and the Bahamas. He is called Thor by friends because of his resemblance to the Norse God.
Captain Philip has over 28 years of boating experience, from captain to maintaining the boats in top shape. He is passionate about yachting and truly is a captain that loves to share his knowledge for boating. He’s professional and takes his job for the waters very serious.
Fate definitely had a hand at making me a captain and now I can’t imagine life without yachts and water. Everyday I get to see the most wonderful people having a time of their lives, celebrating anything and everything I can think of and creating happy memories that the yacht crew becomes a part of. “Find a job you love, you’ll never work again…”- for me it’s being a Captain.
Capt Keith was born in Miami, FL and grew up boating and fishing on the waters of South Florida. He is retired US Navy and has been a licensed USCG 200 ton Master for 30+ years.
Captain Manny has over 10 years of experience on the water and as a local knows all the best spots in Miami. He gained experience through work on yachts, ferries, dinner cruises, and tugboats. His professionalism and expertise in boating is sure to make each charter a fun experience!
If there was person who truly captained for the joy of giving people unforgettable experiences on the water, it is Scott. Scott has broad experiences on boats, from racing on professional sailboats internationally to delivering and running yachts. Scott studied engineering at Georgia Tech and now works in private equity. He is our favorite weekend captain because he shows up to the boat excited to meet the clients and make their time out on the water one of a kind.
Born and raised in landlocked Belarus, I have always had passion for the ocean. I moved to Miami in 2011 and joined the Advantaged team in 2014: initially as a stewardess, and later transitioned to being a captain. I never get tired of breathtaking Miami sunsets, and will gladly share my favorite views of this amazing city with you.
Elizabeth loves being on the water and helping guests create lifelong memories. She’s enthusiastic about hosting guests on board to celebrate milestones like anniversaries and birthdays, whether you’re looking for a party atmosphere or a relaxed day on the water. She loves spotting dolphins and taking you to breathtaking swimming spots with panoramic views of Miami’s skyline.
Originally from Serbia, graduated Hotel Management and studied multiple foreign languages. I fell in love with Miami several years ago and ever since then I’ve been enjoying hosting all our yacht charter guests. Whether you are in the mood for a relaxing day in the ocean or a big party cruise, I’ll give my best and help create unforgettable memories. I will show you everything Miami has to offer, from celebrity houses to the best swimming spots with amazing views. Join us for your own adventure on a yacht-captain and I will make sure you have the time of your life!
