Eric Simpson joins us as site manager for the 2024 season. He grew up sailing the coast of Maine and worked on tall ships, marine and island construction and boatyards while working towards his captain’s license. He has worked on commercial vessels as captain, mate and engineer from the North Atlantic to Alaska, Patagonia and Antarctica. Most recently he has been the operations manager for a tour boat company in Seward, Alaska while raising his children with his wife, Christine. Eric thinks Catalina Island is a perfect place to spend some time with his young active family.
