Crew Profile

David Sliss

David started to learn about the ocean and fishing and found his passion for the sea. Captain Sliss started his career in 1996 working on the long-range fishing vessels of San Diego. In 2006 he earned his first US Coast Guard Captain licenses. Over the years Captain David went form fishing vessels to private yachts, and for the past 15 years this has been his passion. Since 2006 David has moved up in the maritime industry to now holding his 1,600-ton Master’s License. Throughout his career, Captain Sliss has traveled and worked in many areas of the world including Panama, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and the USA Northeast. In the end, the destination he has always found to be home is Baja where he spends his days spearfishing, surfing, or just simply basking in the Baja sun.

For Mexico:

Vanina Carrizo

Vanina was born and lived in Mar del Plata, Argentina. She worked in one of the best resorts in her city as a VIP Concierge. In 2017, fleeing the Argentine winter, she moved to Cabo San Lucas and fell in love with Baja. She worked several years on sailboats and the last two years in various luxury yachts. Her focus on board is attending to every detail and to make clients feel at home so they have an amazing time. And, of course, also to make excellent cocktails! Her previous work experience is in sales, guest and customer service, photography and editing. Vanina loves the ocean, dogs, and sunsets.

Jorge Barrios

Chef Jorge Barrios was born in La Paz, Baja. He spent most of his childhood at a fish co-op in San Carlos learning how to prepare and cook seafood from a very young age. His father was also the co-op's baker. Jorge went to a chef trade school in high school and did his internship at Akira Sushi at El Merkado. He went on to work as a cook in Italian and Mediterranean restaurants, and as a private chef in villas and convention centers for 2 years. His last job was as a pastry manager at Sunset Monalisa where he learned how to prepare high quality pastry and bakery from the hand of excellent chefs. His favorite food to cook is Mediterranean and he loves to make homemade pasta.

Alejandro Romero Camacho

Alejandro was born in Puerto Adolfo López Mateos Baja, in 1981 from a fishing family. His grandfather was the founder of the town. He is passionate about the sea and its beauty. With more than fifteen years of experience in handling and working with boats, he has excelled at lobster and abalone fishing. On board his favorite catch is Wahoo and Dorado.

Jasiel Yran López

Jasiel moved to San Jose del Cabo as a child. From the first time he saw the Pacific Ocean until today, he has been fascinated with its beauty and majesty. Surrounded by fishermen, he got his first fishing panga (little boat) at the age of 15, and began to specialize in Tuna and Dorado fishing. For the last 6 years Jasiel has jumped into Yachts and Luxury Sailboats as a Deckhand, working on vessels from 56 to 140 feet. Believe it or not, he has a Law degree, but there is no law that can keep him away from the ocean! He also spends his land time playing basketball on a local team, and bass in the Trinidad Rock Band.

For charters outside Mexico, crew joining Captain David are to be determined.
