Owner Operator Captain Wes Heinmiller is vastly experienced.

He is joined by a chef, and an optional 3rd crew member for larger groups. For Summer 2020 Wes and a Chef had smaller groups of 4 or less aboard, to Rave Reviews.

Captain Wes Heinmiller was born in Long Beach, California in 1954 to a boating family. When Wes was fifteen years old, he sailed to the Fiji Islands and resided there for two years with his family. He came back to Long Beach and started a marine repair, piloting & management company that is still in business today. Wes has worked in many aspects of the marine industry from sales to installation, and finally decided that yacht chartering is his forte. Wes piloted several boats for the motion picture and television industry: Riptide, Winds of War, Tequila Sunrise, Days of Our Lives, and The Bold & The Beautiful. Having a 1,600 ton Masters License with S.T.C.W. training, towing & sailing endorsements, Wes spends his time between his work in Newport Beach, CA and his residence on Orcas Island, WA. Wes’s marine capabilities are vast and his repair capabilities extensive. He has an excellent association with the Coast Guard from certifying four of his last boats. Wes has renovated nine Chris Crafts back from ruins in all sizes from 18′ Holiday speedboats to 65′ Coast Guard Certified Constellations & Commanders. He will guarantee a memorable trip.
