The captain – Michael White was born and raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. He grew up exploring the Barrier Islands and sailing and fishing in the Mississippi Sound. After graduating high school at St Stanislaus, he joined the Navy. He wanted to drive the ship but was forced to become an advanced electronics technician instead. After leaving the Navy, Michael joined Gateway Computers in its infancy. But the call of the ocean brought him back to Mississippi to pursue his true passion and goal of becoming a boat captain.

He received his first master’s license in 1996 and worked in the oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico. In 2004, Michael started Lucky Duck Amphibious Tours – a land and sea tour company in Biloxi. Unfortunately, eleven months into operation, the Mississippi Gulf Coast was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. This forced him to return to working offshore. His love for entertaining and tourism again drove him to purchase the Betsy Ann Riverboat.
