General Info:
Today, Captain's, with a footprint in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, is likely the oldest business of its type in America. Modern technology now blends with ancient maritime tradition, and old fashioned, hands-on service. Real people still answer the phone. No, we don't do it "24/7". But if you call during our hours of 8 am to 5:30 pm weekdays, 9 am to 5 pm Saturdays, Pacific Time, you will not be greeted with an automated attendant. Leonard Shrock continued serving customers in the store beyond his ninetieth birthday, passing from this life on 26 May 2004. Now, a staff of 12, many with Captains for ten to thirty years, answers your questions, fills your orders, and repairs your instruments. We think Max Kuner would be pleased. Visitors to our stores are often amazed at the depth of stock in our specialties.
