About Casual Navigation

Casual Navigation is your window into the maritime world.

We love to explore the many different aspects of the maritime industry, with the aim of making it fun and interesting for everyone to enjoy.

Who Am I?

My name is Kym, and I founded Casual Navigation in 2018 when I created the YouTube Channel.

I simply wanted to learn how to make videos, so I chose a topic that I knew a lot about, allowing me to focus on the video production process.

Little did I know that 4 years later, Casual Navigation would become my life as I transitioned to become a full-time content creator.

My background is in the merchant shipping industry. I’ve worked around the world on different vessels, before moving my career closer to home to work as a harbour pilot. Over that time, I was lucky enough to gain experience with almost every type of merchant ship that you can imagine.

  • Warships
  • Container ships
  • Bulk cargo ships
  • General cargo ships
  • Tankers
  • Passenger ships
  • Workboats
  • Offshore supply vessels
  • Tugs & tows
  • Pleasure vessels

In my spare time, I enjoy sailing on small boats. With my family, I own a Bayraider Expedition. It is a trailer-sailer, built by Swallow Yachts in the UK and is perfect for teaching a young family how to sail.
