Robert Sengstaken


Captain Rob's love of sailing started at a young age on the lakes near his home and has since taken him all over the world. From motor yachts to sailing yachts ranging in sizes up to 170' his experience is vast, and his knowledge is all encompassing from the helm to the engine room. He enjoys sharing his love of sailing with others and has many years teaching youth how to sail off the coast of New England, Maine, and Martha’s Vineyard. Captain Robert has had a very diverse career in the marine industry that includes crab fishing, marine and biological research on university vessels and catamarans in Hawaii.

Becca has been racing sailboats for 3 years and knows how to work as part of a team. She has her yacht master offshore and is currently working towards her commercial endorsement. She is an easy-going, dedicated shipmate and works incredibly hard. She is very versatile in her abilities on deck and interior.

Lee first came to Alaska in 1995. She drove from California with her dog and her kayak, exploring Alaska from the Inside Passage to the Top of the World Highway in the Yukon. It was then that the nature of Alaska and her unique communities grabbed a special place in her heart. She has paddled with Killer Whales, Humpback Whales, walked the tundra with Polar Bears, Brown Bears, and shared a beach with Walrus!
Lee has been leading exclusive yacht expeditions in Southeast and Southcentral Alaska for over twenty years. Over that time, she has developed an intimate knowledge of the waters and wildlife of coastal Alaska, and desires to share knowledge of that wilderness with her passengers. Her presentations on wildlife and culture are both educational and enjoyable.
She has a deep connection and respect for the native culture in Southeast Alaska, and many contacts within the communities in the small villages and towns.
Lee has had the opportunity to work with over 25 Yachts: the Owners, Captains, and crews, and has loved every minute of it.

The yachting industry has no global listing service to which all charter yachts must subscribe to, making it impossible to ascertain a truly up-to-date view of the market. Charter Index is a news and information service and not always informed when yachts leave the charter market, or when they are recently sold and renamed, it is not always clear if they are still for charter. Whilst we endeavour to maintain accurate information, the existence of a listing on Charter Index should in no way supersede official documentation supplied by the representatives of a yacht.
