Crew:

Nicole and Ramiro met 19 years ago while sailing in Key West, Florida. They were married on top of Mt. Battie in Camden, Maine. Then they set sail working on several charter and private sailing yachts in Maine and the Caribbean; dreaming of the day when they would own their own boat.

After 9 more exciting years together, they returned to Camden to start a family. Their daughter, Delfina, was born and four years later, they added their furry friend Lucy to the family.

Their dream of owning a boat and working together as a family has come true. This is their third year owning the Schooner Surprise. Nicole and Ramiro are thrilled to carry on the tradition of sailing the Surprise in Penobscot Bay. They look forward to showing you what they love about Camden, Maine and why they love being out on the water.
