      Hello James. Any chance you will approve my membership in Captain to Captain forum. It's been a few weeks since my request. Thanks, Captain Rick

      Dear James, I requested to join this forum back on the tenth of this month. I have not heard back yet.

      Thank you.

      I am sitting in a quiet anchorage with the Olympic Mountains looming over the forest. I turned on my radio and heard about Irene coming toward you. It's been 45 years since I lived on the East coast and 20 years since I've been in the tropical Pacific. Tropical storms are a distant memory. The news made me think of you. I'm sure you're a hurricane veteran, but you never know what can happen with these things. Good Luck, I'm pulling for you.

      Not sure if I'm in the right place for reading what other Captains write. Just brought a 39 Meridian delivery around from St Pete to Miami through head on seas pushed by 20-25 mi. winds. It was a lovely ride that I wanted off. St. Pete to Marco = 9 hrs., Marco to 7 mile bridge = 6 hrs, 7 mile to Miami = 7 hrs.

    Dive History:
    Captain James Rosemond has been running boats his entire life. Tortuga Charters is the manifestation of a lifelong dream, to make a living on the water and bring his love of the sea to his customers. After 25 years of Sales and Business Management, James decided to turn his skills towards an endeavor that incorporated his life long passion, being on the ocean.

    For years, his recreational passion has been to take friends and family to sea. After running boats in pursuit of offshore species using rod and reel fishing and free dive spearfishing from North Carolina to Florida and the Bahamas, Captain James decided to get the proper training to strap a tank of compressed air to his back. It was then that he discovered an entirely new way of enjoying the ocean.

    Now a licensed United States Coast Guard Captain and certified PADI Dive Master with hundreds of open ocean dives, Captain James is uniquely qualified to deliver his customers to and from the dive site or fishing grounds safely

    Captain James is a licensed United States Coast Guard Captain and certified PADI Dive Master with hundreds of open ocean dives. On his boat, the Captain is always willing to share his love of the ocean, and specifically the North Carolina coast with his rich and plentiful stories.

    James has always drawn upon his love of story telling to communicate with others. An avid writer of short stories for personal recollection through the years, at 48 years old, he decided to write and publish a book titled «ìiding on the Bottom. It is a humorous and anecdotal look at his transition from Sportfisherman to Scuba diver.
