General Diving Info
Michael is a PADI Dive Instructor and Josh is a PADI Divemaster. Between the two of them you are in safe hands exploring the underwater world!

Guests interested in diving are required to fill out a medical questionnaire/liability waiver and potentially obtain doctor's clearance prior to coming down to the Virgin Islands. Additionally, certified divers must send a copy of their diver certification card prior to the trip.

Aeolus offers a complimentary Discover Scuba Dive (Resort Course) to guests that are not certified divers (10 year old minimum age). This includes a ~1 hour safety and theory course along with a ~30 minute shallow water dive.

Certified divers can dive up to three times throughout the charter. Additional dives will be up to the discretion of the Captain based on the itinerary and weather conditions.

Aeolus offers diving education including PADI Open Water and Advanced courses. All E-Learning will need to be completed prior to the charter and we highly recommend completing the confined water sections with a local shop prior to the trip. This allows you to finish out the course with the open water dives and not consume too much of the trip!


Diving Costs information
All the necessary dive gear is complimentary onboard Aeolus. If you have preferred gear that works for you, we recommend bringing it along! Our vessel uses Scuba Pro Gear including everything necessary for PADI courses as well.

Open Water Referral Course: $400pp
Advanced Open Water Course: $300pp
Additional DSD Dives: $100pp

Payment for diving is preferable as Venmo or Cash to the Instructor.

We recommend getting DAN diver insurance or a comparable policy for your trip.

Captain Michael
Michael was born and raised in Texas and grew up loving the outdoors with his dad taking him on countless hiking, canoeing, and camping adventures. After university and working in the corporate world for five years, he decided to make a change and enjoy the outdoors through sailing as a career! He started off his sailing career in the Mediterranean and now calls the Caribbean home. He also loves the underwater world and earned his Divemaster in Cozumel followed by his Instructor License in Roatan. His favorite fish is the porcupine fish so you will see him frantically point each one out when you go diving! When away from sailing he is exploring new parts of the world, meeting new people, and eating as many new cuisines he can find!
--Interests: Hiking, Diving, Cooking, Reading, Finding the next board sport to wipeout in.
----------------------------
Chef Casey
Casey, born and raised in Florida, has always been happiest when on the water. After specializing in hospitality and event management at the University of Florida, she worked at luxury, private golf resorts before transitioning into residential real estate. After years of the work grind, she decided adventure was waiting for her. She left behind the "norm " and caught the travel bug-bad! Before deciding to call the Caribbean home, she was a nomad traveling the world experiencing the kindness of strangers, new cultures, and all things food!

She is a foodie through and through and her passion for food began at a young age always cooking and baking with her mom in the kitchen. She loves incorporating all different cuisines and has a passion for how food can bring people together. She has been a full-time yacht chef in the Mediterranean and Caribbean since 2019. To hone her skills, she’s attended Ashburton Culinary Academy in England and Superyacht Culinary Academy in South Africa.
----------------------------
First Mate Josh
Growing up in rural Ireland, Josh's love for the outdoors was engrained into him throughout his childhood. His first time sailing was when his father surprised him and his siblings with a sailing holiday, instead of a theme park, much to their disappointment. With five people crammed onto a 28ft yacht, Josh, who was 7 and the youngest, slept on the floor, over a step. He’s loved sailing ever since. At 18, he began to work on sail yachts which has taken him all around the globe, from Europe to New Zealand and almost everywhere in between. With his RYA Yachtmaster, Padi Divemaster and a love for anything outdoors - from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans - you can be sure Josh will make your sailing holiday as adventurous as you please.
----------------------------
Stewardess Nicole
Born and raised in Miami, Nicole is one of the many natives who will tell you that South Florida is more Caribbean than American. She has loved the water since birth, and she would never forgive herself for passing up any water sports opportunity. After finishing up two degrees, she took herself to Europe and finished her Master’s, discovered a love of mountains, and a complete devotion to the outdoors. In the last decade, Nicole’s independent adventures have led her around the world, across six continents, in a wide variety of service-oriented jobs. She has returned to the Caribbean bright eyed, bushy tailed, and full of nostalgia. She is confident that her exposure to multiple cultures, etiquettes and cocktails has equipped her with the skills required to help facilitate the warmest hospitality experience possible.

While onboard guests will be encouraged to visit the "must see's", and also to get off the grid and experience the beauty and nature that the Virgins Islands have to offer. Your crew loves helping the guests capture priceless moments with their Drone, DSLR, GoPro, and Polaroid Camera. They are excited to have you onboard and provide unforgettable experiences around these beautiful islands.

"We've traveled all over the world and this has to be our favorite vacation so far! Thank you for taking such good care of us! Michael was a great Captain from working the sails to navigating the dinghy in the dark. Casey - the meals, snacks, and drinks were way beyond our expectations - every meal was the "BEST MEAL" (seriously create a cookbook and make some side $$!!). Our trip has ended much too soon - let us know where you are in a year so we can book another charter with you! If you're ever in Atlanta, you have a place to stay so give us a call (same with Nashville! Come see us & we will take you to Broadway :)). God Bless you in all your adventures!" -The Grimes, Greg, Melissa, Conner, & Kristen Duluth, GA

Senior Spring Break – March 2021 ‘Everything about this trip was absolutely perfect. Michael & Casey clearly love what they do and their passion shows. After a number of boat trips, this is my all time favorite and we will be back!’ – Monica ‘Thanks for the unforgettable week. Best trip we’ve ever had! Next time you’re in Rains look us up.’ – TA ‘Thanks for the perfect trip for us Newbies! The food and adventures – we will never forget. The attention to detail was on point! Can’t wait to sail with you guys again and thanks for making us “seniors” feel young again ’ – Angie ‘Thank you for an amazing week on the sea and in the sun! Top notch crew, my favorite yet, that didn’t miss a thing. I appreciate your attention to detail and how you went above and beyond on the menu and taking us to places we hadn’t been. You will be missed and y’all make us want to come back!’ - Stacey and Big Nate

"Michael & Casey, Thank you for giving us a week full of experiences and memories that we will remember for a lifetime! From the food that was out of this world, to teaching Shane and Travis to scuba dive, and even showing us the ropes of sailing, we've had the most unforgettable week island hopping around the Virgin Islands! Both of you have shown unbelievable kindness, grace, patience, wisdom, joy, laughter, and love to not only our family, but to each other! Each of you are truly an inspiration to us and everyone you encounter! Thank you for being such a highlight on our trip and welcoming us to your home with open arms. We hope you have an amazing 2022! Love, The Cristiano Family"

"Thank you for saving our vacation from near-certain tragedy! Not only did we get a great boat, we got an even better crew. You are a great team and top notch across the board. You enabled us to make new friends (including you) while having the time of our lives. Not a boring moment. It is rare to find people in the world who are so good at making others feel so good, have so much fun, and make them eat so much!! We will miss you." -Shaun (aka boat man) & Betty "What a fantastic week...and unexpected given the inauspicious start having our originally planned vacation canceled the morning of our flights. As it turned out, we were lucky. This past week was better than expected - good time with great friends, of course, but with a nicer boat and (I'm sure) a better crew. You two were great, organizing a fantastic itinerary with unexpected surprises - After Irma concert, massages, Lime Out, Zozos...and what wonderful food!!! Thank You!" - Heather and Lou "We have lost ourselves in the moment of "today is today." I am hard pressed to think of another time in the last two years when I have felt so relaxed and carefree and slowed down. This was all possible because the two of you made things so easy, comfortable, and your knowledge of the islands and what you knew we would enjoy. There were too many highlights to pick out just one, but what I will remember the most is the belly laughs with the two of you and all our friends. Thank you for absolutely everything!" - Christine & Rob

"Thank you both for such an incredible experience on Liquid Zen! Even though our parents weren't able to make it, we had the BEST time and honestly wouldn't have it any other way (except maybe icing Brad at least *one* more time). This week truly was the best relaxation that I didn't know I needed. To Casey: no words other than wow - this trip was filled with the most amazing food and really not sure how I can go back to reality at this point (lol) Thank You! To Michael: Thanks for being such a fun Captain despite our plot to lose the dinghy. Also thanks for initiating Brad into the family by icing him upon arrival. We won't forget these things along with all the other great memories! We had such a great time hanging out with you both, and feel like we are leaving with two new friends. It's been an unforgettable trip & we can't wait to do it again! (maybe we'll even let our parents join next time haha). Cheers! Love Mollie, Hastings, Emily & Brad

"To say this was the trip of a lifetime doesn't even come close to the true experience that you two created for our family. Our two families, though separated by distance, have been coming together for years, and this is by far the BEST trip we have ever taken. The attention to detail, your kindness, and patience truly stood out. We all know 100% for sure that we landed the best crew & boat in the entire USVIs. We all can't wait to return to meet again & experience the BVIs with you both. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!" -The Zaps if you ever need an extra crew member for night watch, you know who to call ;) "What a treasure it was to be a part of your Liquid Zen world for a week. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this the best week ever!! It is hard to pick a favorite day/memory from the week. The sunset hike, the "icing", the scuba diving, the FOOD, the drinks, pineapple card game, the night time snorkeling, will all be in our hearts forever. Your attention to detail is so impressive. The two of you make the best team and your hard work does not go unnoticed. Grant is already plotting the next boat trip to the BVIS, but we all agree we couldn't do it with anyone but the two of you! Take care and be safe, and we hope our paths cross again!" -The Coons (aka future Bote Raft Owners :))

This trip was absolutely incredible and that is because of y'all! It was like being at summer camp with the two most fun counselors. You guys kept us in line with good suggestions and lots of delicious food. It was so awesome getting to know y'all, learning cool stuff about the islands, exploring new spots, and so much laughing. Casey - you're an amazing chef and the kindest person. Michael - you're an effortless captain and hilarious person. Thank y'all so much for making the week so awesome.

Friends, It is difficult to re-create unique and magical moments. Congratulations, you did it! This has been an amazing week. The two of you go above and beyond to create the best experiences. We will leave with hearts full. The beautiful stops, yummy meals, exploring, and lots of laughter. As a group we had several discussions on how we really enjoyed getting to know you both more.

What a ride (literally)! Our Iowa YPO group will forever remember your phenomenal hospitality. The week couldn't have been more perfect from the beautiful spreads of delicious food, the humor sprinkled in with fun music, flexible timing for our excursions, and tolerance for our "wild ones." You have found your calling and we are fortunate to have been your guests. We greatly appreciate your smiles, your never ending friendliness, and the quick-witted comments.

We stumbled aboard late, tired, stressed, and excited to start our week. Within the hour we were casually laughing and getting into the groove of the vacation of a lifetime. Words cannot express our thanks for all the delicious food, special cocktails, patience, jokes, and most of all just taking care of everything so we just had to sit back and relax. Everyone agrees: Exceeded our Expectations! One thing is for sure, this trip would have not been as amazing, fun, and memorable without our Crew - Michael & Casey. You are the VERY BEST. We feel so lucky to have selected Liquid Zen and spent our week with you. Can't thank you enough. The Booze Cruise - Jenna & Keith, Meredith & Matt, Meredith & Derrick

After our last charter, I think we all wondered if it was possible to match that experience...you guys exceeded it!! This was an amazing week with you both and it was so needed after a crazy, challenging few years. Casey, the food and service was perfect - we'll all be thinking of you when we're back in the gym. Thank you for making it amazing!! Michael, the quiet competence with a side of Texas sass. You did such a great job being our Captain, host, and guide. Thank you - we'd follow you both to any boat or place. This place is special to all of us and you made it more so. Thank you for taking such good care of us. - Matt & Leni Thank you both for such an amazing and fun trip. - #10 & #12 chair champs Derick & Shannon Michael you were a good first mate, Casey you were an amazing Chef.

Thank you both for being such kind and thoughtful vacation planners, our trip was wonderful. We made a lot of memories together and are grateful for everything you did to make it happen! Here are a few of our favorite memories: Gumption and all he entails: entrepreneur, DJ, Tour Guide, Lemur expert, photographer, and promoter! Michael's pants being assaulted by the chair in Anegada; may they find the courage to be worn again in public. Billy Ocean and Casey's bellowing laughs on Murder Mystery Night. Mom and her lost and found jewelry and hat nearly being blown to Puerto Rico. Of course we will always miss and remember Casey's delicious food. Thanks for being so flexible with us; it's going to be a sad farewell at the end of this vacation. We wish you both well in your next adventure and hope to see you on the islands next season! - The Wusterhausens
March '24 Charter
You all provided exceptional service and trust for my first time in the U.S.VI + BVI. You were all so caring, patient, friendly and professional. Words cannot describe being in your presence for a week! Casey, I applaud you for making my meals vegan and being so great at it. I am a big foodie, your meals have been the best I’ve ever had. I know you worked tirelessly to feed us and you’re seen for that. Nicole, your service is beyond first class. You treated us like queens and your drinks were the best thing I’ve ever had! The notes you left on my pillow is something I’ll take home with me to do in my household. Josh, you are quiet but you are seen for all of your hard work, physical work and making this trip so smooth and flawless - you are acknowledged! Michael, you also made the entire week flawless and your patience, humor and personality didn’t go unnoticed. You made a group of seven ladies who have control issues feel 100 percent safe, secure and at peace. Thank you all for your expert concierge! Thank you for the diet accommodation for myself, thank you Nicole for the amazing dance moves and thank you to the boys for making us all feel comfortable. Until we meet again! - Laurel This was a trip of a lifetime with 5+ star crew. Sharing a week of adventures with The Lady Sirens was a blast. An amazing group of ladies, leaving as friends with stronger bonds. I can’t thank the crew enough. They made the week flawless. Make a request and they would make it happen. Casey - thank you for the amazing food. You covered us… we never went hungry. You quickly learned preferences and accommodated them with ease (well, you made it look that way). I wish I could even come close to the amazing, healthy meals and treats you made. True talent! Nicole - you are fabulous at your job. The energy. The service. Your notes of appreciation to encourage us. Always there picking up after us. Making sure I had ice water at all times. I wish I could bring you home. Josh - you tend to work in the shadows, but never too far away. I see the hard work you put in each day helping out your coworkers. Michael - you were an awesome captain. I will always remember you bringing out the map to show us the next day’s plan. Thanks for helping to make CrossFit workout happen! You’re the best. I have so much gratitude for all of you. I don’t have the words to express what you have given me. So many memories… a lifetime of them. I am so glad and thankful Brandi hosted this amazing trip/retreat. It was needed more than I knew. The crew made this adventure manifest to more than I could ever even imagine. Keep being amazing! - Candace

What a beautiful week. The blessings bestowed upon all of us from Nicole, Michael, Josh and Casey were unbelievable. Nicole - thank you so much for the care you provided this week. You went above and beyond to show us love and care. Your love notes and flowers on our pillows brought me so much joy. Most importantly? I see that you take this seriously and actually love what you do here. It’s so nice and refreshing to see that! Thank you for being you. Casey - I don’t know where to start. Can I whisk you away so me and my family can enjoy your cooking? You had to accommodate so many different dietary restrictions and you did it with so much ease. Everything was superb. I pray in this lifetime I get to experience your cooking again. Thank you. I pray you create a cookbook of all your superb dishes… Josh! Thank you so much for your sweet and calm spirit. I see you working hard and being so present with us with the little things. Thank you for keeping us safe and ensuring we have fun. Continued blessings to you! Michael! Thank you for being our guide, for keeping us safe. Your humor daily was a joy to be around. Thank you for driving this boat with ease and getting us to where we needed to go. I also see your care and compassion for others. People look to you always for direction without knowing you because that’s who you are: a leader. Keep living your dream. If it wasn’t for Brandi and Steve we would have never been able to experience all of your beautiful individual talents. Cheers to Brandi and Steve for choosing the most amazing crew!

This 'forced family fun' trip was truly everything I imagined it would be PLUS more. Each of you has a true special gift and you so generously shared with us. Your patience, kindness, knowledge, your caring, and true love of what you do shone through.

You are wonderful people and we are blessed to have spent this Easter week with you!" -- Maja "Casey - You are an artist with food! Simply Amazing!

General Diving Info
Michael is a PADI Dive Instructor and Josh is a PADI Divemaster. Between the two of them you are in safe hands exploring the underwater world!

Guests interested in diving are required to fill out a medical questionnaire/liability waiver and potentially obtain doctor's clearance prior to coming down to the Virgin Islands. Additionally, certified divers must send a copy of their diver certification card prior to the trip.

Aeolus offers a complimentary Discover Scuba Dive (Resort Course) to guests that are not certified divers (10 year old minimum age). This includes a ~1 hour safety and theory course along with a ~30 minute shallow water dive.

Certified divers can dive up to three times throughout the charter. Additional dives will be up to the discretion of the Captain based on the itinerary and weather conditions.

Aeolus offers diving education including PADI Open Water and Advanced courses. All E-Learning will need to be completed prior to the charter and we highly recommend completing the confined water sections with a local shop prior to the trip. This allows you to finish out the course with the open water dives and not consume too much of the trip!


Diving Costs information
All the necessary dive gear is complimentary onboard Aeolus. If you have preferred gear that works for you, we recommend bringing it along! Our vessel uses Scuba Pro Gear including everything necessary for PADI courses as well.

Open Water Referral Course: $400pp
Advanced Open Water Course: $300pp
Additional DSD Dives: $100pp

Payment for diving is preferable as Venmo or Cash to the Instructor.

We recommend getting DAN diver insurance or a comparable policy for your trip.

Captain Michael
Michael was born and raised in Texas and grew up loving the outdoors with his dad taking him on countless hiking, canoeing, and camping adventures. After university and working in the corporate world for five years, he decided to make a change and enjoy the outdoors through sailing as a career! He started off his sailing career in the Mediterranean and now calls the Caribbean home. He also loves the underwater world and earned his Divemaster in Cozumel followed by his Instructor License in Roatan. His favorite fish is the porcupine fish so you will see him frantically point each one out when you go diving! When away from sailing he is exploring new parts of the world, meeting new people, and eating as many new cuisines he can find!
--Interests: Hiking, Diving, Cooking, Reading, Finding the next board sport to wipeout in.
----------------------------
Chef Casey
Casey, born and raised in Florida, has always been happiest when on the water. After specializing in hospitality and event management at the University of Florida, she worked at luxury, private golf resorts before transitioning into residential real estate. After years of the work grind, she decided adventure was waiting for her. She left behind the "norm " and caught the travel bug-bad! Before deciding to call the Caribbean home, she was a nomad traveling the world experiencing the kindness of strangers, new cultures, and all things food!

She is a foodie through and through and her passion for food began at a young age always cooking and baking with her mom in the kitchen. She loves incorporating all different cuisines and has a passion for how food can bring people together. She has been a full-time yacht chef in the Mediterranean and Caribbean since 2019. To hone her skills, she’s attended Ashburton Culinary Academy in England and Superyacht Culinary Academy in South Africa.
----------------------------
First Mate Josh
Growing up in rural Ireland, Josh's love for the outdoors was engrained into him throughout his childhood. His first time sailing was when his father surprised him and his siblings with a sailing holiday, instead of a theme park, much to their disappointment. With five people crammed onto a 28ft yacht, Josh, who was 7 and the youngest, slept on the floor, over a step. He’s loved sailing ever since. At 18, he began to work on sail yachts which has taken him all around the globe, from Europe to New Zealand and almost everywhere in between. With his RYA Yachtmaster, Padi Divemaster and a love for anything outdoors - from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans - you can be sure Josh will make your sailing holiday as adventurous as you please.
----------------------------
Stewardess Nicole
Born and raised in Miami, Nicole is one of the many natives who will tell you that South Florida is more Caribbean than American. She has loved the water since birth, and she would never forgive herself for passing up any water sports opportunity. After finishing up two degrees, she took herself to Europe and finished her Master’s, discovered a love of mountains, and a complete devotion to the outdoors. In the last decade, Nicole’s independent adventures have led her around the world, across six continents, in a wide variety of service-oriented jobs. She has returned to the Caribbean bright eyed, bushy tailed, and full of nostalgia. She is confident that her exposure to multiple cultures, etiquettes and cocktails has equipped her with the skills required to help facilitate the warmest hospitality experience possible.

While onboard guests will be encouraged to visit the "must see's", and also to get off the grid and experience the beauty and nature that the Virgins Islands have to offer. Your crew loves helping the guests capture priceless moments with their Drone, DSLR, GoPro, and Polaroid Camera. They are excited to have you onboard and provide unforgettable experiences around these beautiful islands.

"We've traveled all over the world and this has to be our favorite vacation so far! Thank you for taking such good care of us! Michael was a great Captain from working the sails to navigating the dinghy in the dark. Casey - the meals, snacks, and drinks were way beyond our expectations - every meal was the "BEST MEAL" (seriously create a cookbook and make some side $$!!). Our trip has ended much too soon - let us know where you are in a year so we can book another charter with you! If you're ever in Atlanta, you have a place to stay so give us a call (same with Nashville! Come see us & we will take you to Broadway :)). God Bless you in all your adventures!" -The Grimes, Greg, Melissa, Conner, & Kristen Duluth, GA

Senior Spring Break – March 2021 ‘Everything about this trip was absolutely perfect. Michael & Casey clearly love what they do and their passion shows. After a number of boat trips, this is my all time favorite and we will be back!’ – Monica ‘Thanks for the unforgettable week. Best trip we’ve ever had! Next time you’re in Rains look us up.’ – TA ‘Thanks for the perfect trip for us Newbies! The food and adventures – we will never forget. The attention to detail was on point! Can’t wait to sail with you guys again and thanks for making us “seniors” feel young again ’ – Angie ‘Thank you for an amazing week on the sea and in the sun! Top notch crew, my favorite yet, that didn’t miss a thing. I appreciate your attention to detail and how you went above and beyond on the menu and taking us to places we hadn’t been. You will be missed and y’all make us want to come back!’ - Stacey and Big Nate

"Michael & Casey, Thank you for giving us a week full of experiences and memories that we will remember for a lifetime! From the food that was out of this world, to teaching Shane and Travis to scuba dive, and even showing us the ropes of sailing, we've had the most unforgettable week island hopping around the Virgin Islands! Both of you have shown unbelievable kindness, grace, patience, wisdom, joy, laughter, and love to not only our family, but to each other! Each of you are truly an inspiration to us and everyone you encounter! Thank you for being such a highlight on our trip and welcoming us to your home with open arms. We hope you have an amazing 2022! Love, The Cristiano Family"

"Thank you for saving our vacation from near-certain tragedy! Not only did we get a great boat, we got an even better crew. You are a great team and top notch across the board. You enabled us to make new friends (including you) while having the time of our lives. Not a boring moment. It is rare to find people in the world who are so good at making others feel so good, have so much fun, and make them eat so much!! We will miss you." -Shaun (aka boat man) & Betty "What a fantastic week...and unexpected given the inauspicious start having our originally planned vacation canceled the morning of our flights. As it turned out, we were lucky. This past week was better than expected - good time with great friends, of course, but with a nicer boat and (I'm sure) a better crew. You two were great, organizing a fantastic itinerary with unexpected surprises - After Irma concert, massages, Lime Out, Zozos...and what wonderful food!!! Thank You!" - Heather and Lou "We have lost ourselves in the moment of "today is today." I am hard pressed to think of another time in the last two years when I have felt so relaxed and carefree and slowed down. This was all possible because the two of you made things so easy, comfortable, and your knowledge of the islands and what you knew we would enjoy. There were too many highlights to pick out just one, but what I will remember the most is the belly laughs with the two of you and all our friends. Thank you for absolutely everything!" - Christine & Rob

"Thank you both for such an incredible experience on Liquid Zen! Even though our parents weren't able to make it, we had the BEST time and honestly wouldn't have it any other way (except maybe icing Brad at least *one* more time). This week truly was the best relaxation that I didn't know I needed. To Casey: no words other than wow - this trip was filled with the most amazing food and really not sure how I can go back to reality at this point (lol) Thank You! To Michael: Thanks for being such a fun Captain despite our plot to lose the dinghy. Also thanks for initiating Brad into the family by icing him upon arrival. We won't forget these things along with all the other great memories! We had such a great time hanging out with you both, and feel like we are leaving with two new friends. It's been an unforgettable trip & we can't wait to do it again! (maybe we'll even let our parents join next time haha). Cheers! Love Mollie, Hastings, Emily & Brad

"To say this was the trip of a lifetime doesn't even come close to the true experience that you two created for our family. Our two families, though separated by distance, have been coming together for years, and this is by far the BEST trip we have ever taken. The attention to detail, your kindness, and patience truly stood out. We all know 100% for sure that we landed the best crew & boat in the entire USVIs. We all can't wait to return to meet again & experience the BVIs with you both. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!" -The Zaps if you ever need an extra crew member for night watch, you know who to call ;) "What a treasure it was to be a part of your Liquid Zen world for a week. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this the best week ever!! It is hard to pick a favorite day/memory from the week. The sunset hike, the "icing", the scuba diving, the FOOD, the drinks, pineapple card game, the night time snorkeling, will all be in our hearts forever. Your attention to detail is so impressive. The two of you make the best team and your hard work does not go unnoticed. Grant is already plotting the next boat trip to the BVIS, but we all agree we couldn't do it with anyone but the two of you! Take care and be safe, and we hope our paths cross again!" -The Coons (aka future Bote Raft Owners :))

This trip was absolutely incredible and that is because of y'all! It was like being at summer camp with the two most fun counselors. You guys kept us in line with good suggestions and lots of delicious food. It was so awesome getting to know y'all, learning cool stuff about the islands, exploring new spots, and so much laughing. Casey - you're an amazing chef and the kindest person. Michael - you're an effortless captain and hilarious person. Thank y'all so much for making the week so awesome.

We stumbled aboard late, tired, stressed, and excited to start our week. Within the hour we were casually laughing and getting into the groove of the vacation of a lifetime. Words cannot express our thanks for all the delicious food, special cocktails, patience, jokes, and most of all just taking care of everything so we just had to sit back and relax. Everyone agrees: Exceeded our Expectations! One thing is for sure, this trip would have not been as amazing, fun, and memorable without our Crew - Michael & Casey. You are the VERY BEST. We feel so lucky to have selected Liquid Zen and spent our week with you. Can't thank you enough. The Booze Cruise - Jenna & Keith, Meredith & Matt, Meredith & Derrick

After our last charter, I think we all wondered if it was possible to match that experience...you guys exceeded it!! This was an amazing week with you both and it was so needed after a crazy, challenging few years. Casey, the food and service was perfect - we'll all be thinking of you when we're back in the gym. Thank you for making it amazing!! Michael, the quiet competence with a side of Texas sass. You did such a great job being our Captain, host, and guide. Thank you - we'd follow you both to any boat or place. This place is special to all of us and you made it more so. Thank you for taking such good care of us. - Matt & Leni Thank you both for such an amazing and fun trip. - #10 & #12 chair champs Derick & Shannon Michael you were a good first mate, Casey you were an amazing Chef.

Thank you both for being such kind and thoughtful vacation planners, our trip was wonderful. We made a lot of memories together and are grateful for everything you did to make it happen! Here are a few of our favorite memories: Gumption and all he entails: entrepreneur, DJ, Tour Guide, Lemur expert, photographer, and promoter! Michael's pants being assaulted by the chair in Anegada; may they find the courage to be worn again in public. Billy Ocean and Casey's bellowing laughs on Murder Mystery Night. Mom and her lost and found jewelry and hat nearly being blown to Puerto Rico. Of course we will always miss and remember Casey's delicious food. Thanks for being so flexible with us; it's going to be a sad farewell at the end of this vacation. We wish you both well in your next adventure and hope to see you on the islands next season! - The Wusterhausens
March '24 Charter
You all provided exceptional service and trust for my first time in the U.S.VI + BVI. You were all so caring, patient, friendly and professional. Words cannot describe being in your presence for a week! Casey, I applaud you for making my meals vegan and being so great at it. I am a big foodie, your meals have been the best I’ve ever had. I know you worked tirelessly to feed us and you’re seen for that. Nicole, your service is beyond first class. You treated us like queens and your drinks were the best thing I’ve ever had! The notes you left on my pillow is something I’ll take home with me to do in my household. Josh, you are quiet but you are seen for all of your hard work, physical work and making this trip so smooth and flawless - you are acknowledged! Michael, you also made the entire week flawless and your patience, humor and personality didn’t go unnoticed. You made a group of seven ladies who have control issues feel 100 percent safe, secure and at peace. Thank you all for your expert concierge! Thank you for the diet accommodation for myself, thank you Nicole for the amazing dance moves and thank you to the boys for making us all feel comfortable. Until we meet again! - Laurel This was a trip of a lifetime with 5+ star crew. Sharing a week of adventures with The Lady Sirens was a blast. An amazing group of ladies, leaving as friends with stronger bonds. I can’t thank the crew enough. They made the week flawless. Make a request and they would make it happen. Casey - thank you for the amazing food. You covered us… we never went hungry. You quickly learned preferences and accommodated them with ease (well, you made it look that way). I wish I could even come close to the amazing, healthy meals and treats you made. True talent! Nicole - you are fabulous at your job. The energy. The service. Your notes of appreciation to encourage us. Always there picking up after us. Making sure I had ice water at all times. I wish I could bring you home. Josh - you tend to work in the shadows, but never too far away. I see the hard work you put in each day helping out your coworkers. Michael - you were an awesome captain. I will always remember you bringing out the map to show us the next day’s plan. Thanks for helping to make CrossFit workout happen! You’re the best. I have so much gratitude for all of you. I don’t have the words to express what you have given me. So many memories… a lifetime of them. I am so glad and thankful Brandi hosted this amazing trip/retreat. It was needed more than I knew. The crew made this adventure manifest to more than I could ever even imagine. Keep being amazing! - Candace

What a beautiful week. The blessings bestowed upon all of us from Nicole, Michael, Josh and Casey were unbelievable. Nicole - thank you so much for the care you provided this week. You went above and beyond to show us love and care. Your love notes and flowers on our pillows brought me so much joy. Most importantly? I see that you take this seriously and actually love what you do here. It’s so nice and refreshing to see that! Thank you for being you. Casey - I don’t know where to start. Can I whisk you away so me and my family can enjoy your cooking? You had to accommodate so many different dietary restrictions and you did it with so much ease. Everything was superb. I pray in this lifetime I get to experience your cooking again. Thank you. I pray you create a cookbook of all your superb dishes… Josh! Thank you so much for your sweet and calm spirit. I see you working hard and being so present with us with the little things. Thank you for keeping us safe and ensuring we have fun. Continued blessings to you! Michael! Thank you for being our guide, for keeping us safe. Your humor daily was a joy to be around. Thank you for driving this boat with ease and getting us to where we needed to go. I also see your care and compassion for others. People look to you always for direction without knowing you because that’s who you are: a leader. Keep living your dream. If it wasn’t for Brandi and Steve we would have never been able to experience all of your beautiful individual talents. Cheers to Brandi and Steve for choosing the most amazing crew!

"To the amazing, marvelous, and always happy crew of Aeolus - You have exceeded every expectation that I had for my family's first maiden sailing voyage. This 'forced family fun' trip was truly everything I imagined it would be PLUS more. Each of you has a true special gift and you so generously shared with us. Your patience, kindness, knowledge, your caring, and true love of what you do shone through. Every little detail was noticed by Nicole, every special meal request by Casey, every water toy wish by Josh, and Michael the scuba, sailing, and patience with all aboard! You are wonderful people and we are blessed to have spent this Easter week with you!" -- Maja "Casey - You are an artist with food! Simply Amazing! We all had too many favorites and could not agree on the winning dish. Thank you for being so accommodating with so many special requests! Nicole - you have the best people skills that I've seen in hospitality! You are truly gifted and go the extra mile every time! Josh - your happiness is infectious; you truly enjoy every day and you make this job look like fun!! Gratitude comes easy to you and it shows! Michael - I'm so glad that you traded in Finance for this amazing profession. Your peace and tranquility is a very important quality in this business! Thank you for introducing scuba to my family. I will be forever grateful! To the owners - Thank you for sharing this amazing vessel! As guests, we only see the top 1/3 of the iceberg and know how much work it is to create Aeolus! You've done a great job! The crew is a ten out of ten! Thank you." -- John
