Ted Barrett, founder

Ted has 16 years of experience working in outdoor education and guiding including positions as a surf, whitewater, hiking and dive instructor for Costa Rica Outward Bound, director of the rescue dive program and sailboat captain for Action Quest, a NOLS instructor in the sailing, white water, and backcountry skiing programs, a programmer and Caribbean director for Broadreach and most recently, before starting MountainSea, as a sailing instructor for Nautilus Sailing.

With over 35,000 nautical miles logged, Ted has sailed extensively throughout Europe in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Aegean Seas; the entire Arc of the Caribbean; across the Pacific and Atlantic; the Arctic Circle; Pacific Northwest; South America; and Sea of Cortez. There are still so many destinations to see and share with his crew.

When he isn’t leading MountainSea adventures, Ted enjoys pursuing his passions in building furniture, downhill skiing, surfing, scuba diving and playing tennis. He really enjoys guiding and sharing his experiences with others and is excited to bring his skills and enthusiasm to his newest endeavor, MountainSea.

“What an amazing experience! This trip took us out of our comfort zone just enough to be a great adventure. We saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the horizon, swam in clear blue waters and slept out on the deck under the stars. Our guide and Captain, Ted did a great job sailing the boat while sharing his knowledge of the process and the islands we visited. Highly recommend a trip like this with MountainSea for families or a group of friends!”
