About Our Staff and Captains
Edward Durante was raised in the British Virgin Islands. His family has been there for more than four generations.
His father, (famed local artist Lutai Durante) is originally from Salt Island and the family makes its home in Road Town, Tortola. Edward has a lifetime worth of knowledge of the islands and their waters. Edward started swimming when he was in kindergarten and soon after he was fishing and sailing all types of boats, even teaching others to swim so they could experience the water like he did. Edward attended Cedar International School in the BVI and later went on to attend college to study marine technology with a concentration in Boat Mechanics. Through the years Edward has obtained his Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers and his boat Masters License and has logged thousands of hours working on and captaining boats. Edward has a love for the ocean and the environment and works to educate others in an effort to keep the BVI healthy for generations to come.
Edward has an eye for boat design and function and has even rebuilt a boat that he salvaged from the bottom of the sea.
“I enjoy meeting new people and I also love showing these beautiful islands to all the people who visit. I know very good spots for every occasion, so come and check me out so that I can help you plan your special day.” – Captain Durante
