Originally from China Village, Maine, Sam has been working on boats since 2013. In Maine, he enjoyed whale watching and lobster fishing in the frigid North Atlantic waters, until he couldn’t take the cold any longer and made his way to Maui in the fall of 2016. On his days off you can often find him on adventures with his puppy (Sailor), at a pub trivia night somewhere in Kihei, or grocery shopping.
Captain John (Retired)
John served as a Captain on the Four Winds and Four Winds II since 1995. Not only is he an accomplished stand-up comedian, but also a golfer extraordinaire and a Chicago Bears fan to the very bitter end. “Cappy” John is an all-around good guy. John retired at the beginning of 2017 and he is greatly missed, but you may still be able to spot him on the Four Winds II when he makes a surprise guest appearance!
