• Captain Billy
Billy Litmer, Captain | Founder

With Kentucky bluegrass roots and a B.S. in Biology, Billy found a world with a blue sea too alluring to ignore. He hopped on a Greyhound bus in 2005, with a backpack and a tent. Thirty Eight hours later he was on the side of a road in Key West. Not knowing where to pitch his tent or what to do next, but knowing that somehow he needed to be on the water.

Billy eventually packed up the tent, rented a room and experienced two hurricanes in as many months. After this and meeting personalities as powerful as the storms, Billy found his new home. With a passion for science- especially when related to the outdoors, a love of education, and a need for informality, Billy discovered that being a guide and a captain was one of the few things that could meet his requirements.

While Billy has stayed in an ashram while living and traveling in India, his first time doing yoga was on a paddleboard, trust us, this is proof that Yoga at Sea is for anyone that can breathe.
