Colin Macy-O’Toole hasn’t appeared on a season of Below Deck Mediterranean in almost two years, but he still keeps in touch with his yachting friends. During his time on the series, Colin was a deckhand who got along with almost everyone in the crew. Before he joined the reality series, Colin was the captain on a ferry, much different than working on a superyacht. He made some great connections with his castmates during seasons three and four, even though he did not return for season 5.
Viewers were introduced to Colin on the Talisman Maiton yacht in Italy. During his first season on the Bravo reality series, he worked alongside bosun Conrad and deckhands Joao and Jamie. When he first got to the boast, Colin began to develop a crush on the second stewardess, Brooke. However, she fell for Joao, and the two had a tumultuous romance on the boat. For the season following, Colin laid low and focus on his work as a deckhand.

So what is Colin up to now? Well, the former deckhand is back to working in Long Island. Judging from Colin’s Instagram page, he is back to working as a captain on the Long Island ferry. While his yachting days may be on hold, for now, Colin still keeps up with the Below Deck drama. He recently appeared on a few episodes of Below Deck Galley Talk, where former crew members get together to sit and watch an episode from the franchise. One episode he filmed alongside Below Deck Med alum Bobby Giancola, who appeared on the first two seasons. Most recently, Colin started a podcast called “Radio Check with Colin Macy-O’Toole,” where he interviews fellow crew members from the show. However, he hasn’t posted an episode since July 2020.
Colin has also been vocal about his thoughts on Captain Sandy’s firing of Hannah last season. During an episode of the “Hot Takes & Deep Dives” podcast, Colin took Hannah’s side. “I don’t know what’s edited, I don’t know what’s there,” he began, noting, “from what I see on the show, I don’t think that’s right.” Hannah was fired halfway through the season after bosun Malia White shared photos to Sandy of Hannah’s prescription Valium, vape pen, and a lighter. “The fact that Malia did what she did, I don’t think that’s right,” he said, adding, “We all know Hannah has anxiety […] I think the way Malia went about things was very shady.” It appears Colin was on team Hannah like most of the viewers.
Since leaving his final charter on season four, Colin has been focusing on working as a captain for the Long Island Ferry. While he enjoyed his time on Below Deck Med, the third season for him might not be in the cards right now. However, season 6 is set to premiere sometime this summer, so maybe viewers will get to see the return of Colin Macy-O’Toole.
