Name: Tyler Harris
Tyler was born and raised in Morehead City NC, where his family and ancestors were some of the first 18th century settlers on the outer banks of NC after becoming shipwrecked in the dangerous waters of the Atlantic. Tyler is the 3rd generation in his family to be a captain. His great grandfather was a charter/commercial captain who was an instrumental part in the birth of the sport-fishing and boatbuilding industry. Growing up near the water, he spent a lot of time on and around boats. In middle school, he and his father decided to build a small 18’ skiff together. At the young age of 15, Tyler’s first job on the water was the second mate onboard a 46’ wooden hull charter boat based out of Atlantic Beach, NC. It was then when he began logging hours and sea time to obtain his first US coast guard captains license and obtained his first UCCG credential 3 months before his high school diploma. After graduation, Tyler moved to Orlando Florida to attended Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI) where he honed his outboard and marine diesel skills. Shortly thereafter, he relocated to Ft. Lauderdale FL and began his yachting career as a deckhand on a 110’ motor yacht. Since then, his travels have taken him thousands of miles across Alaska, all of the pacific coast of North America, 5 Panama Canal transits, eastern and western Caribbean. Tyler’s true passion and favorite place to take charter guests is the Bahamas. In the Bahamas, Tyler knows the secret treasure spots to fish, spearfish, snorkel and experience the adventures and beauty of these incredible waters and the islands. Guests will enjoy a combination of adventure on land and sea. Share in island festivals, restaurants with local flavors and sunsets, hideaway beaches and so much more. When he is not yachting or fishing, Tyler enjoys spending time at home with his wife and 2 kids and coaching his son’s youth baseball team. He also enjoys spending time on his airboat in the Florida Everglades.
