Captain Kim Tanner

Our newly-appointed Master, Captain Tanner, has been a Staff Captain for Saga Cruises since February 2016. And we’re delighted he has chosen to stay with Saga for the next stage in his seagoing career.

Hailing from Jersey, Captain Tanner now calls the Spanish island of Majorca his home. Despite being our youngest Master he has been “messing around in boats since he could crawl”, and has worked at sea professionally for almost 15 years, including service as a Chief Officer for P&O and Cunard ships such as QM2.

When he’s not on board, Captain Tanner still loves to travel along with many outdoor pursuits such as skiing, water sports and – in something of a busman’s holiday – spending time on his own sailing boat!

Captain Tanner will take command on the May Bank Holiday Getaway cruise, sailing April 30, 2017 aboard Saga Pearl II.
