Capt. Ryan Hickey

Captain Ryan is a long time sailor, wakeboarder, snow and water skier, snow boarder and all around sports enthusiast. Growing up in Missoula, Montana, Ryan gained a love and appreciation for all things in the great outdoors. After sailing in the early spring on Flathead Lake and being splashed with mostly glacial runoff, warmer waters were sought. While attending the University of Colorado at Boulder he worked during the summers in New York teaching boating skills and water activities to kids fresh from the big city. Upon graduation Ryan moved to Maui and quickly landed a crew position with Paragon Sailing Charters. He moved through the ranks to become a USCG licensed Captain in less than two years on Maui. Paragon has also given back to Ryan by providing the setting for the introduction to his lovely wife, Aarika.
