Captain Paul Del Rio
USCG Master 100 Ton

With over 35 years and 40,000+ miles offshore sailing experience, it can be said that Capt. Paul has a special affinity for the sea. His familiar waters include the Atlantic and Pacific coastlines, Eastern and Western Caribbean, the Bahamas and Central America.
When his feet are on land, Paul holds the rank of Commander in the US Coast Guard Auxiliary where he is a certified Coast Guard Instructor and Vessel Examiner.
Along with his affinity for the ocean, Captain Paul is right at home in the classroom where he brings his “Blue Water” experiences and congenial teaching abilities to his students. As a former BSA Scoutmaster and father of four, Paul has a special “soft spot” for young adults who wish to experience the joys of sailing.
Keeping a constant eye on safety and security, life can be filled with plenty of time for learning, laughter, friendship
and adventures.
