Homeport - San Diego, California
My name is Captain Mike Kelley and I have be a USCG 100 ton licensed Master Captain since the mid '70's. My experience has had me running a large variety of vessels, both sail and motor, from the Orient to both coasts of North America and Central America. I have run everything from 75' steel trawlers to 75' Topsail Schooners... from 60' yawls to 85' Catamarran and just about everything else in between!
Presently, I run a vessel for the Neptune Society out of
San Diego. I have done deliveries many times from Hawaii, American Samoa, Honduras, Seattle, Norfolk, San Francisco, Costa Rica, Panama, Portland, La Paz, Miami & CDMI.... to name a few! I can safely say I've never NOT gotten the job done... no matter where in the world the boat was!
I have tons of experience in delivery and would like to be able to help you out on yours.

I grew up operating wooden powerboats on Chesapeake Bay, under the watchfuleye of my father, a non-commissioned Navy 'Seabee' officer, who served in Hawaii in World War II. In 1979, after serving as the mate on a 72' Chesapeake Bay 'bugeye' schooner, I obtained my original US Coastguard license. Although the Bay and it's many rivers are my 'home grounds', I've extensively cruised the Atlantic coast from Maine to Florida, both offshore, coastal and on the Intra-Coastal Waterway under power and sail. I've sailed from North Carolina to Puerto Rico, as well as the Virgin Islands. I've served as Captain and/or crew on sail and powerboats up to 150'. I was even trained and worked as an Outward Bound instructor
in the 1990's.
In 2010, I was named an 'Outstanding Marine Wizard' of Annapolis. I hold a TWIC card, am on a random drug testing consortium. I have a masters of arts degree, have traveled widely, speak Spanish and have had a successful career in government and private business. My articles on a wide variety of topics, including boating safety have appeared in regional and national publications. I've also been a guest speaker/trainer in 15 states. As a husband, homeowner, father and former owner of power and sailboats, I appreciate the value you place on your property and will look after your boat as if it were my own!
