Captain Dave Sybert

Captain Dave Sybert is the owner of Vicarious Charters and has been running trips since 2016. Dave is a marine educator, SCUBA instructor, level 2 free diver and has been fishing since his early days on the Chesapeake Bay, California and on the Outer Banks for the last decade. Besides fishing and diving, Dave is an avid surfer and works as a marine educator. He enjoys passing along his love of all things water.


Quentin grew up on the water and is always either surfing, fishing, or spearfishing on the Outer Banks.  He started swimming out to wrecks near his house when he was 13 years old and has been addicted to spearfishing ever since.  He is a PFI level 2 free diver, USCG certified captain, and holds the IUSA spearfishing world record for a 16.8-pound sheepshead.

When he isn’t spearfishing, he is in the water surfing.  He has competed in surf contests from a young age and now travels all over the world competing professionally.  Some of the places he’s traveled to surf include Hawaii, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Panama, Barbados, and Mexico.
