    • Captain: Wes Heinmiller

      Wes was born in Long Beach, California in 1954 to a boating family. At the age of 15, he sailed to the Fiji Islands and resided there for two years with his family. Wes came back to Long Beach and started a marine repair, piloting & management company that is still in business today.

      Wes has worked in many aspects of the marine industry from sales to installation, and finally decided that yacht chartering is his forte. Wes piloted several boats for the motion picture and television industry: Riptide, Winds of War, Tequila Sunrise, Days of Our Lives, and The Bold & The Beautiful.

      Having a 1,600 ton Masters License with S.T.C.W. training, towing & sailing endorsements, Wes spends his time between his work in Newport Beach, CA and his residence on Orcas Island, WA.

      Wes’ marine capabilities are vast and his repair capabilities extensive.

      He has an excellent association with the Coast Guard from certifying four of his last boats. He has renovated nine Chris Crafts back from ruins in all sizes from 18′ Holiday speedboats to 65′ Coast Guard Certified Constellations & Commanders.

      Wes guarantees a memorable trip!

    • "I’d give this charter a 10. (This having been our first charter, I have no point of comparison, other than our prior vacations. This was definitely a 10 in comparison.)  Wes, Greg and Rachel were an exceptional crew.  They worked very hard to deliver an outstanding trip.  Very professional, yet kind and friendly.  Wes is an excellent yachtsman.  Safety was paramount, and we always knew we were in good hands.  Our youngest daughter spent considerable time with Wes at the bridge, and learned much about the sea and boating.  Greg’s cooking was wonderful and we enjoyed his company and his knowledge of Alaska.  Rachel interacted beautifully with our family and took great care of us. Northern Light was quite comfortable and she was spotless.   Wes obviously takes great pride in her and keeps her in tip-top shape. Ventilation was never a problem.  We enjoyed the cuisine very much. Every meal was delightful.  We loved the area we toured.  None of us would have chosen to stay in Taku Harbor for two nights, but weather required it, so we had no complaint.  We especially enjoyed Ford’s Terror and Endicott Arm.  Unbelievably serene.  You were quite helpful in guiding us first-timers.  I can’t think of anything more you could have done.  We look forward to future charter adventures."  -  Alaska, 2016

      "I spoke with the family and they were delighted with the yacht, crew, and area."  - Charter Broker, San Juan Islands, 2015

      "I'm giving Wes, the boat and your company 10's across the board. We had a great time. Wes was very professional. The boat was very well kept for a yacht of its age. Your service was also outstanding. Thank you for making our experience such a good one." - San Juan Islands, 2015

      "Everything was wonderful. We can't wait to do it again." - Alaska, 2014

      ‘Quality is a rare thing.’ - Victor Wild - “Captain Wes, Jenn and Greg, Thank you for a week of quality in every way! We appreciate you.” - Alaska, 2014
