Winter 2023 to 2024
GENERAL RATES NOTE: All rates are for one week / 7 nights. For short charters please use the 'divide-by-6 rule' for figuring short charter premiums:
Charters of 6 nights, use 6/7ths (six sevenths) of the weekly rate. For charters of 5 nights or fewer, the fee is calculated by dividing the weekly rate by 6, then multiplying that figure by the desired number of nights of charter.

Capt. Richard "Rico" Diaz
Rico grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota, swimming in the land of ten thousand lakes. He obtained a degree in IT and spent many years in network security before leaving behind the cubicle to pursue a career as a dive instructor. After achieving the Dive Instructor Certification in the Virgin Islands, instructing in Hawaii, and diving around the world, Rico was drawn back to the warm waters of the Caribbean, where he fell in love with sailing. He spent the next few years working on sailboats, tech diving, and leading snorkeling tours at Buck Island Reef National Monument. Immediately after obtaining his USCG Master Merchant
Mariner License, he was recruited by the National Park Service as a Research Vessel Captain, scientific diver, and biologist. During his time with the Park Service, Rico treated coral diseases, tagged sharks, and collaborated with numerous scientific agencies in marine conservation efforts. Rico has decided to combine all his experiences, passions, and talents to introduce others to the wonders of the ocean as the Captain of Paradigm Shift.
