Captain Jon began fishing on his father’s boat, the Crack-A-Dawn, at the young age of 3. As he grew older, his love for the water and boats grew and he started to work as first mate, learning the ins and outs of boating. When he turned 19, Jon received his 100 Gross Ton near Coastal Master’s License. After the tragic events of September 11, Captain Jon started to work in New York Harbor, operating fast ferries between New York City and New Jersey. In 2007, Captain Jon wanted to expand his knowledge of boats and decided to take the “Small Craft and Yacht surveying” class at Chapman’s School of Seamanship in Stuart, Florida. Upon completion of this class, Captain Jon joined his father and formed Captain Moro, LLC. In 2012, Captain Jon decided to further his career in the maritime industry and moved to Washington, DC, where he served as the Director of Marine Operations for a sightseeing company in our nation’s capital. Currently, Captain Jon heads up Captain Moro, LLC for the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia area while also working for one of our nation’s largest dinner cruise companies.
