Kimber was born & raised on Oahu, Hawaii. The daughter of passionate lifelong sailors, Kimber started sailing at age seven, was an avid surfer through her teens, got into scuba diving early on & worked at the Waikiki Aquarium in Dolphin & Monk Seal volunteer research programs for many years. Her first study expedition was to ID humpback whales in Alaska aboard a 65 ft. Ketch, sailing the magnificent inside passage in 1981. She has since sailed aboard every type of vessel imaginable, from a 3 masted schooner through the Seychelles, Dhows off the coast of Kenya and down the Nile, to the historic Swedish tall ship Tre Kronor over the Baltic. A lifelong love of adventure and exploration has driven her to the four corners of the world and both Polar regions, traveling thus far through over 50 countries mostly solo. She enjoyed a career as a successful entrepreneur and corporate executive in the US and Europe before a stint as a consultant for a well-established charter company ignited an interest to enter the yachting industry as a second career. Kimber enjoys the opportunity to combine her endearing love of the ocean, passion for adventure, international experience of five-star hospitality, with a genuine enthusiasm for helping people fulfill their dream of “sailing off into the sunset” in one of the most beautiful sailing grounds in the United States. Her attention to detail and desire to ensure clients have a first-class time aboard is readily apparent from beginning to end of every charter.
