Private Charter Boat Captain San Diego

Captain Josh Hummel

Owner and founder of Sip & Sea Cruises, Josh Hummel started his career in the U.S. Navy Special Forces as a Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman (AKA “SWCC”). As a SWCC, his motto was “On Time, On Target, Never Quit,” and that’s something that he still lives by today.

Hummel’s distinguished U.S Naval Officer career has given him a great deal of experience, not only in the operation of boats, but leadership and safety on the water. He has been a 100-ton U.S. Coast Guard Master Licensed Captain for over 16 years. He has operated and led tactical operations of small craft all over the world.

His military experience combined with a Bachelors degree in business and organizational leadership has helped him translate his love of boats and being on the water to Sip & Sea Cruises for your safe and fun memories on the water!

Captain Phill Narmada is a prior Naval Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman with experience on the ocean conducting high-risk training and real deployed missions for US Navy Special Forces. Even before his journey in the Navy, Phil braved the seas in Alaska as crew on an Alaskan fishing charter boat. Phil holds a 100 Ton Master Captain’s license. His vast experience on the water and playful character is the perfect combination to host you and your guests for a fun, safe cruise with Sip & Sea!
