Crew Profile

Captain Eric Thor Olsen Sr
Captain / Owner

Eric writes, "I was born in Seward in the Territory of Alaska. I grew up on the Kenai Peninsula living on the homestead my dad settled in the late 1940s. I fished with my dad through my teens and then independently along the Alaska coast from Prince William Sound, Cook Inlet, Kodiak Island and out west to Bristol Bay. I sat for my US Coast Guard Masters Captains license in 1984 and captained my first passenger boat running a nature tour for Kenai Fjords Tours. I have been the Captain of many different vessels, taking visitors out along the rugged Alaska coast for 37 years. Now, I have my own yacht that will fulfill a dream I have had for years. A dream that has grown out of a love of sharing my Alaska with visitors of all ages and nationalities: to spend my summers cruising the inland waters of Alaska; anchoring in a different bay or cove every night; watching the whales, coastal brown bears, and bald eagles, trying to capture their beauty in my photography. Fishing, setting crab and shrimp pots, and eating seafood just pulled from the ocean - it doesn’t get any better than that! Come and join us - you will not be disappointed!"

Eric is joined by or 3 additional crew members.
