Hi, this is Captain Dan. A little about me. I was raised in Manhattan Beach, Ca. and I'm a true blue surfer boy. I am very passionate about the ocean and ocean life. When I was young, my dad used to rent little boats out of Redondo Beach and we'd go fishing. Even at a very young age I knew I could never leave the ocean. I was in my early 20's when I bought my first boat. Then took trips to Long Beach, Catalina, or wherever my boat would take me. Since then I've had about 10 different boats. When I bought Ciao Bella, I fulfilled my dream of owning a beautiful yacht. I love sharing the ocean with whoever wants to go on a cruise with me. I'll keep you entertained for hours with stories of my surfing and boating life. Because - old surfers don't die, they just buy big boats.
I am a fully licensed captain by the U.S. Coast Guard. I hold a license to captain vessels up to 100 tons (which is a pretty big boat). It's been my pleasure to take people out and share my passion for the incredible seas for over 40 years. I look forward to spending time with you on Ciao Bella.
