Owner Profile

About the Owner/Operator of Spartina Charters...


Amber Kuehn grew up exploring the May River on a 15ft motor boat which she learned to handle by the age of 12.  This access to a watery playground planted a seed that would direct her path to complete a Masters Degree in Marine Biology and manage a 100 ton Master Captain's License.  These pursuits took her to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Maui, Hawaii for a 5 year hiatus from the Lowcountry.  


As a scuba instructor and dive boat captain, she educated divers on what they would observe submerged in the Atlantic and later, the Pacific.   When the Spanish moss, rustling palmettos, and emerald marsh called her home, she reacquainted herself with the Lowcountry by guiding eco tour charters for various companies on Hilton Head and in Bluffton.  


Currently, Amber manages Sea Turtle Patrol Hilton Head Island and immerses herself in field biology on a daily basis.  She will offer a field biology expedition with her floating laboratory as owner/operator of Spartina Marine Education Charters.
