Season 6 of Below Deck Med will wind up in the next couple of weeks. An explosive reunion show will follow before the show goes on hiatus until next year.

Captain Sandy has become the face of the Bravo show, especially after Hannah Ferrier was fired during Season 5. Despite the outrage for the captain’s actions, Captain Sandy continues to be the constant person on Below Deck Med.

Some people would like to see the captain fired from the show, that is for sure. Those people just might be getting their wish as Captain Sandy begins a new venture.

Captain Sandy embarks on Lead-Her-Ship Tour

In an interview with Us Weekly, the captain revealed she is going on tour. No, Captain Sandy won’t be talking about yachting or even focus on Below Deck Mediterranean.

Instead, the captain wants to share what her life was like before fame. The tour will include stories about Captain Sandy’s life and special musical guests.

“I want to use this platform to inspire others,” she expressed. “Thanks to Bravo, we have reached so many Americans. I didn’t seek the maritime industry. I fell into it. So, many people are now aware of it. I wish Bravo was out, and this show was out when I was a kid because I think I would have discovered this a lot sooner and had a lot less pain in my life because I took a different path. And that’s really what it’s about, and it’s also talking about music.”

The captain and her girlfriend Leah Shafer are both avid music lovers. Leah sings, and it turns out Captain Sandy has some DJ skills.

Captain Sandy also wants to use the tour to encourage people to get back to traveling and exploring other cultures.
