Meet Your Captain John Morin

Captain John Morin

Looking back at growing up on the lakes and coastal waters of New England, I see the bearing it has on my current marine vocation of charter boat business owner, boat broker and ship service agent. My early experiences on lakes, in small boats, taught me basic boat handling skills and a love for the water. For the first time, early on, I experienced a freedom that comes from “pushing off” the dock.

I primarily spent the next seventeen years working in a third generation, family owned and operated, large service business. We worked hard developing uncompromising customer service principles and maintaining the most diverse customer base in the industry in New England.

I carry these values into my current work. I then started working for the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, taking on logistic site manager and field instructor. This experience gave me solid sea skills, such as a keen weather eye, patience, and an understanding of the logistics involved in the safe operation of vessels on the water.

Providing transport and logistical support services to the US Navy, US NOAA Weather, educational institutions, building contractors, tour groups, and social groups are a sampling of our current work. I broker boats of all types for Lyman-Morse Brokerage and reside on the mid-coast of Maine with my family.

Equinox is not just a transportation service. They’re tuned in. They understand the ebb and flow of island communities.
Eric Hopkins, Artist, North Haven, ME

We had a humongous circle of all my birthday party friends on the deck of Equinox. We explored an island, collected shells, swam and had a cool ride on a darn pretty boat.
