Captain Mariah Warren is a lifelong Alaskan with deep roots in the maritime community. In addition to extensive experience on private and passenger vessels, she has been commercial fishing since 2006, and a Captain in the fishing industry since 2015. When not working at sea, she enjoys traveling the world (preferably also by sea!) and striving to capture life’s adventures through photography and the written word.
Chef (and co-Owner) Ryan grew up in Juneau and in the waters around Southeast Alaska. In 2018 Ryan opened Devil’s Club Brewing Company in Juneau. Devil’s Club has won many awards for its beer and food and is the highest reviewed brewery in Alaska. With the brewery up and running, Ryan’s interest turned back to the sea, and along the way he became a helicopter pilot. After being the chef on multiple Alaskan charter yachts, he knew this was his future. If you enjoy pasta, he loves making his own pasta!
First Mate Ryan and Stewardess Cath fell in love in Alaska five years ago and married in Montana last summer. 2023 will be their third season aboard ALASKAN STORY. They write, “Exploring the ocean environment of Alaska is our dream job. Our goal is to use our skill set to make certain every guest’s experience is truly once in a lifetime; or at least until they return to ALASKAN STORY!”
First Mate Ryan grew up mountain climbing, boating, hunting and fishing in Montana. He has skied and climbed the French, Swiss and Italian Alps as well as the Himalayas in Asia. He began piloting boats in Montana’s Glacier National Park at age 18. He has worked the last 20 years outdoors, including winter as a ski guide and summers as a wildland firefighter with the USFS.
Stewardess “Cath” (Catherine) grew up working on her family cattle ranch in northeastern Oregon. Her upbringing “working the cattle chutes and driving grain trucks instilled a rock-solid work ethic, based on strong family values and the rewards of an honest day’s work.” Cath has managed a fine dining restaurant and lodge outside Lassen Volcanic National Park in the Southern Cascade mountain range and was a ski guide in Montana and at Alaska’s Alyeska resort.
