OUR CAPTAIN AND OUR VESSEL

OUR CAPTAIN


Captain Gary

CAPTAIN GARY GRENIER

Captain Gary has spent his entire life on the ocean, literally. Most recently Gary was the Captain of Nick’s Chance, the large whale watch boat in Kennebunk. He started on Nick’s Chance in 1998 before moving on just a couple years ago. He knows the ocean and the whales well, there isn’t a finer Captain around and we’re excited to have him onboard.

30’ RIBCRAFT CUSTOM RIB


Our vessel, Buzzworthywas built in 2018 by RIBCRAFT Inc. in Marble Head, Mass. It was built to all United States Coast Guard (USCG) Certifications with safety and comfort in mind. Buzzworthy was patterned after the same versatile and nearly indestructible RIBs used by Navy Seals, the USCG, the Secret Service, and multiple rescue agencies around the world use. Powered by twin four-stroke, 300-hp Yahama engines, we can operate safely in almost any sea condition while being eco-friendly.

We’ve installed 14 custom pod seats that provide comfort while reducing the slamming that takes place when a boat is underway. There is storage under each seat that allows passengers to stow small personal items.  We’ve also added a full head that offers a marine toilet.
