Since the age of 12, Pawel had cherished the time he spent sailing with his father and taking holidays in the beautiful lake region of Masuria, Poland. Over the years his passion for the sea grew strong and his mind was set on the yachting lifestyle, seizing the opportunity to cross the Atlantic at the age of 20 and then purchasing his own yacht just one year later. Soon after, Captain Pawel’s love for sailing developed into a career which has taken him on travels throughout the Caribbean and Mediterranean, logging over 60,000nm onboard catamarans and monohulls since 2008. He also is a passionate kitesurfer and is a qualified IKO instructor as well as being an advanced diver. Highly experienced, confident, and enthusiastic, Pawel looks forward to treating guests staying onboard Ocean View to the holiday of a lifetime!
