Captain Bobby grew up in Massachusetts and moved out to Oahu almost 10 years ago. Quickly moving up the ladder in Waikiki Bobby went from beach boy to boat crew and then head Captain of one of Waikiki’s most famous catamarans. Most of the crew here at Sea Maui has worked with Bobby in Waikiki at some point or another so the next obvious choice was to steal him to Maui. We couldn’t be happier to have such a capable and experienced Captain running the show and our amazing vessel. Not to mention it’s pretty awesome getting to work with all your friends!
Another part of the Waikiki clan, Capt. Phil has been family for years and rounds out our team of Captains just perfectly. As a new Dad and soon to be husband, he’s always ready to work (those babies and weddings are expensive). You won’t catch Capt. Phil in a bad mood, he brings the most positive attitude and good juju to each day on Sea Maui. His experience on Oahu and Maui make him a huge asset to the team and a great Captain for our guests.
As our Fleet Master Brad has his hands full. There’s always something to be fixed on these vessels, and Brad is the best there is. His extensive knowledge of all things boats along with his decades of Captain experience makes him the Obi-Wan Kenobi of Ka’anapali. Besides his mechanical abilities Brad is also an amazing, safe, and fun Captian with a knowledge of Maui waters like none other. We are so blessed to have Brad as part of the Sea Maui Ohana and if you’re lucky enough to have Brad as your Captain you’ll see why too!
Peter is the definition of a true LEGEND. I mean look at his head shots, he was born to be a star! Haha. But seriously, he worked as a popular on-air talent for the E-News of Ireland and then moved his way to Hollywood to work as an on-air talent and news coordinator for TMZ. To say he’s “connected” is an understatement. Peter and his wife decided to move back to Maui to be with family after their first child was born and we couldn’t be happier! Now part of the Sea Maui Ohana, he is the glue that holds the company together. As our Operations Manager he keeps the company moving and does it with a smile everyday. You won’t find a better team, Peter and his beach concierge crew will take your vacation to the next level. Visit Peter and the boys at our “Ocean Activities” surf shack along the beach walk at Whaler’s Village (next to Leilani’s & The Westin).
Sweet is just that, Sweet. Another member of the Waikiki club, Sweet finally caved in and joined the rest of her friends here on Maui and made the move. We couldn’t be happier to finally have her aboard. Most days you’ll catch Sweet taking the photos on our snorkel sails. Her photography skills are unrivaled here on Maui, she always gets the shot! You won’t find a more gentile, kind and caring human. Sweet will take great care of you while in the water, and make you look good doing it!
After serving our country overseas for many years as a Marine, James finally settled in Waikiki where he met the rest of the gang. Fun fact, many Sea Maui employees originate from Waikiki boats and have been friends for many years. We’ve built the dream team here on Maui and we wouldn’t be a complete “Ohana” (family) without our brother James. He brings a great attitude, TONS of Aloha, and plenty of experience with him to work everyday. If you’re lucky enough to sail with James you’ll see right off the bat that you’re now part of the family too.
Geno is originally from Washington State and has worked on Ka’anapali catamarans for almost 4 years now. His stellar customer service, knowledge of sailing and love for the ocean makes Geno the perfect 1st Mate of our newest and largest vessel Sea Maui III. In his spare time Geno loves playing all sport and you can typically find him in the ocean, even on his days off. His weakness is donuts and his spirit animal is a honu (sea turtle).
Mario was born and raised in Colombia and has also lived in North Carolina and Argentina before finally settling here in Hawaii. He loves sports and all outdoor activities including soccer, surfing, skating and hiking. His enthusiasm on board is contagious, he’s always willing to teach our guests about all the wonders of Maui and our stunning waters. Mario is also a proud papa of a beautiful baby girl and when not working on Sea Maui you may also see him spinning fire at shows across the island. Truly a man of many talents!
Carrie is from Minnesota eh? She grew up listening to Prince and loves to sing Purple Rain in her head while hoisting the sails. Feel free to sing along when you see her on the boat! We acquired Carrie using our first draft pick through a mutual friend and decided that we’re never giving her back. Carrie’s spirit animal is a shark (even though she couldn’t hurt a fly), she’s totally addicted to candy, loves to bust a move on our rockin’ sunset sails (she’ll be happy to show you), and dreams of having a Humpback whale jump over the boat like in Free Willy. Let’s all pray that her dreams never come true right? Jokes aside, we’re so lucky to have Carrie on board with us. She’s a pleasure to work with and Sea Maui wouldn’t be the same without her.
One word comes to mind when describing Cy… Aloha. Born and raised on Maui he knows literally everything there is about activities, surfing, boats, snorkeling, but most importantly he truly embodies that Aloha spirit you won’t find on the mainland. He’s worked in the tour and surf industry for most of his life and prides himself with helping Maui visitors make the most of their vacations. When he’s not working with us at Sea Maui you’ll still catch him running ISA surf school at our booth location. So no matter what you’re looking to do on Maui, stop by the booth and check in with Cy first. He’ll hook you up with all of the best activities and trips and make sure your time on Maui is unforgettable. We’re blessed to have him as a part of the family, we’re all proud to call him our friend, and Sea Maui wouldn’t be where we are today without him.
Aloha! I’m Philippe and I handle all of Sea Maui’s marketing, social media, website design, and activites. I worked in radio for many years back in my hometown of Detroit and also here in Hawaii. In need of a change, I began working on Waikiki beach catamarans years ago. Throughout the years I’ve learned a TON about the business and operations of tour boats and I’ve been blessed with the opportuinty to put that to good use here at Sea Maui with all of my friends. I’m passionate about marketing and promotions and even though I LOVED sailing and crewing on the boats, I think my true calling has always been to help run the business and help create a great brand that we can all be proud of. I enjoy graphic arts, web design, and photography which all comes in handy with my role here at Sea Maui. Please follow us on Instagram! and like us on Facebook! and if you’re ever back at home, browsing through our posts and pictures say hi! I love interacting with our guests before and after they join us on the boat. It’s so rewarding to hear the awesome feedback people share and I can’t thank everyone enough for being so supportive of Sea Maui since day one. We’ve met so many great people and families even in just the last 2 years and many of them keep in touch. If you ever have a suggestion, comment, issue with this website or even just need a hand booking you can always reach out to me. My info is below. Mahalo for you’re interest in Sea Maui and thanks for visiting Seamaui.com!
You’ll catch Paula or “Mom” working the super busy phone lines of Sea Maui during peak times. Paula was born and raised in Detroit Michigan and is Philippe’s actual mom. She worked for Pan Am for 21 years and United for 21 years before retiring here in Hawaii. Many of those years were spent in the reservations department before moving on to First Class Ticket Agent at Pan Am DTW and Service Director at United OGG. We couldn’t just have her lounging around and not putting that reservations experience to good use! Paula truly enjoys getting to talk to travelers coming to Maui and loves helping them plan their trips. She’s also an excellent cook, and loves to play host to the staff of Sea Maui when they decide to visit upcountry. We truly are a big family here at Sea Maui and Paula is a big part of that. We love you mom! (She’s going to kill me)
