Jason Frankle: 1st Mate

Upon relocating from Bellingham, WA to Belize-Jason first learned to sail and eventually became a catamaran charter captain in Belize for 4 years. When he returned back to Bellingham, WA he obtained his 100ton license and began working on Snow Goose in 2016. Never one to stay in 1 place too long, he now resides in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands and works as 1st mate on Snow Goose for part of the season. When not on charter, he is passionate about all types of fishing, kiteboarding, downhill mountain biking and dirt bike riding.

Phil Mulligan: 1st Mate & Chef
Phil has always enjoyed the art and creativity of cooking and loves to share that passion with others. Working with local foods as a sous and executive chef, Phil established restaurant and farmer relations all over the country. As a cook on Alaskan charters, Phil enjoys sharing his talents with guests from all over the world.

Phil felt right at home spending summers on a boat in Southeast Alaska, so after two years as a cook on the Snow Goose he obtained his Captain’s License in 2014 and transitioned into the role of First Mate.

Rj Rex: Naturalist
RJ grew up in Minnesota. There he earned a degree in classical guitar performance while working part time as a naturalist for the parks. Then he moved to Washington to explore the Cascade Mountains via hiking boots and backcountry ski.
Now he has an Earth Science teaching endorsement and works for a variety of outdoor education programs, including the Snow Goose Marine educational program. He knows all the details of the Snow Goose that make her operate smoothly and is always ready for an adventure.

Molly Elder: Naturalist
Molly spent her early years swimming in the salty surf and rowing around the craggy coasts of Maine. She graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in Environmental Education with a focus on Marine Ecology. She’s worked aboard the Snow Goose as a Marine Science Educator in Bellingham since 2011 and has been part of the Alaska program since 2015. She enjoys foraging for wild foods and medicines, kayaking in San Juan Island sunsets, rafting the wild waters of the Western United States and just simply plucking on her ol’ banjo. The Cascade Mountains and the Salish Sea will always hold that feeling of home, but Alaska is most certainly her home away from home. She is looking forward to exploring the wings, tails, fins, paws, flowers, foliage, gills and thrills of Southeast Alaska with you!

Bethany Hasper: Naturalist
Alaska’s wilderness holds a special place in Bethany’s heart. Since visiting as a young girl, she always knew she would return. After obtaining a degree in Environmental Education from Western Washington University, she packed up her car and moved to inland Alaska, to the wilds of Denali. Since then, she has moved back to the Pacific Northwest, but returns to Alaska yearly to explore, share and inspire others to love this amazing place. Bethany cannot wait to give all those who join her aboard the Snow Goose a truly spectacular experience in Southeast Alaska while teaching about its remarkable flora and fauna.

*Please note: Snow Goose operates with a crew of 4 who do rotate throughout the season.
