Charter Cayman’s qualified captains and crew hold customer service and your safety as their top priority. Here is a little bit about the history of the company and the guys behind it!
You may remember South African Wayne and Cuban Dave from Red Sail Sports where they made a name for themselves locally crewing and captaining the fleet of Red Sail’s Catamarans. Well, 12 years later they’re all grown up, married, with 3 kids between them and they’ve started their own business to bring you the same excellent, professional service that you have come to expect!
George Pappadakis is our latest recruit and training captain. Keeping it all in the family, George is Wayne’s wife Charlotte’s first cousin.
Wayne is originally from South Africa and arrived on the rock in 2001. Like many before him, he never left!
