Jamie Ryer
"Captain Jacques"

I have been navigating the US waters for nearly 15 years beginning in San Francisco bay where I purchased my first vessel, a 24 foot Bayliner, “The Marmallee I” named after my late sister Marmallee. I quickly outgrew this and acquired a 34 foot Rinker which I named The Marmallee II since I didn’t even have my first vessel for a year!

In addition to myself, all charters are Captained by a licensed USCG Captain and navigate completely under USCG regulations. We keep all required safety gear and then some on board including GPS tracking, Satellite SOS emergency transponders, life vests, first aid supplies, life raft for 8, additional inflatable rafts, night vision camera, XM satellite weather and more, above and beyond what is required to ensure a safe and memorable charter. I am delighted to add this new custom upgraded 2022 Jenneau 1095 NC Fly to my yachting portfolio. Join me and my crew as we make memories and you become a part of the La Vie en Bleu family.

Making memories on a yacht affordable for all! Now offering Jet Ski Tours, & Sand Bar picnics!
