Michael:
RYA Yachtmaster
STCW
Certified Divemaster
Yoga Instructor


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. He graduated from University with a Masters in Accounting and Finance undergrad degree and then worked in Oil & Gas in Houston. After working in the corporate world for five years he decided to make a change and enjoy the outdoors through sailing as a career! He previously fell in love with sailing while in the BVIs and Southern Caribbean and then made the leap to working as skipper on sailing vacations in Croatia. He is excited to return to the Virgin Islands for another season of unforgettable charters. When away from sailing he is exploring new parts of the world, meeting new people, and eating as many new cuisines he can find. He is a Divemaster and can lead dives right from the back scoops of Champs Elysees. Michael also has his RYA 200hr Yoga Certification too so if you're up for a little yoga on charter, this is the vessel for you.

Casey:
STCW
Ashburton Chefs Academy Graduate
Certified Scuba Diver

Casey, born and raised in Florida, has always been happiest when on the water. 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.

After specializing in hospitality and event management at the University of Florida, she worked at luxury, all-inclusive 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” in 2016 and caught the travel bug - bad! In the past four years, she has traveled to over 35 countries experiencing the kindness of strangers, new cultures and all things food!

She recently expanded her culinary training by studying at the renowned Ashburton Chefs Academy in the UK and has worked in both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean as a yacht chef. She loves creating flavorful, delicious meals that are not only fresh but healthy and beautiful.


Michael and Casey met while sailing in Adriatic Sea off the coast of Croatia and clicked as a sailing and cooking dynamic duo! They are excited to be back in the Caribbean for another season creating memories of a lifetime. They hope you will join them for an unforgettable trip among some of the most beautiful islands in the world!

Guests that are into photography will also enjoy the expertise of this dynamic crew. Not only do they love to create memorable experiences for their guests, they also enjoy using their drone, GoPro, photography and video editing skills to creatively share their guest’s unique vacation moments.

Michael & Casey were truly fantastic
Michael & Casey were truly fantastic. We were clients upon arrival - but they made sure we were friends upon leaving! They showered us with amazing food, a lifetime of wonderful experiences, and treated us with care and kindness - plus we laughed and laughed together! :) From the most amazing scenery to the gift of renewal of vows ceremony, dinner, and pictures on the beach - they went above and beyond our expectations and we will never forget this week and especially the two of them :) Absolutely fabulous trip, great destinations, and Michael and Casey were the best hosts, entertaining, putting up with dad jokes, loud laughter, and provided such a relaxed atmosphere. Thank you sooo much! -Carmen & Randy, Mark & Stacey, Dave & Phoebe
Everything was superb to say the least!
Casey & Michael, Where to begin! To say these will be the most amazing memories that will last a lifetime is an understatement. Everything was superb to say the least. The food, the service, and just the two of you in general sooo awesome! I can't believe we visited 8 beautiful islands, So Amazing!! It was the perfect way to spend our 10 year anniversary! Keep doing everything the same, you guys rock and we will be back again. All the best - Courtney & Khalil
It was truly a five star experience
Michael & Casey, Truly a glorious week enjoyed with both of you. The islands of USVI and BVI were incredible. The islands and snorkeling locations you selected for us to explore were perfect. Captain Michael, we could not have been better cared for and served- your calmness and attention to every detail was so appreciated. Chef Casey, the food and desserts could not have been better prepared and presented, it was truly a five star experience. You both spoiled us each and every day. We will treasure the time we shared with both of you and Allen and Lisa. The cherished memories of our trip will be retold for many years to come! -Love Jill & Steve
You guys exceeded ALL expectations
Casey & Michael, I am admittedly not the best with words, so I will just go ahead and put an *asterisk* by this entry. Seven days ago we stepped onto this boat barely knowing y'all, and now we feel like we have two new friends for life! We weren't sure what kind of adventure this would turn out to be, but you guys exceeded ALL expectations. Not to mention we braved a *Cat 5* hurricane mid week! We couldn't have asked for a better crew to brave the storm with. I think it is safe to say that Robert's 40th was the trip of a lifetime. Our boys will remember this forever from the fishing to the Uno games and all the fun in between, y'all have certainly stamped a little place in their hearts and ours. We love you guys, see you in Belize! (ps bring Rummikub!) -Christi & Robert
We couldn't have dreamed of such a perfect vacation
Casey & Michael, Considering this was a last minute impulsive click on the Ipad, we couldn't have dreamed of such a perfect vacation. Thank you so much for welcoming us to your home and being our bff's this week! Casey, the food was over the top fantastic and I never dreamed I would gain weight on this trip! It was so nice to be spoiled for a week. Michael, Your itinerary was perfect, thanks for showing us this gorgeous place! My 20 year dream has been fulfilled and was more fun than I ever expected. Great snorkel spots and beach bars throughout! Thanks so much from your new friends from Tulsa. -Mike & Lesa
Above & beyond our expectations!
Dear Casey & Michael I want you both to know how special you guys made this trip for us. From the moment we talked on the phone until this very moment writing in this book you both have gone above and beyond our expectations. The food was amazing - Casey - you even picked up the very specific requests we (or I) had. Honestly, it was better than any restaurant. You seriously spoiled us for next week! The diving was Awesome! Thank you Michael for being so patient with me & making me feel comfortable. Also thanks for not letting me get stung by a jellyfish or lose my eyelashes! We love how you tailored our trip to our specific needs going to locations we wouldn't be able to or be more difficult by jeep. Your knowledge of the area (all the islands and folklore) is very impressive. We also very much enjoyed playing Rummikub and Uno. The coffee martinis were delicious!! We hope you guys will come spend some time with us in St. John. We will send our friends your way as well. Thank you for an amazing time and lets stay in touch.
Truly unforgettable!
Thank you so very much for making this trip truly unforgettable! You took care of our every wish and were so kind to our children, just like family. We enjoyed the games, movies, jetskis, paddleboard, floating mat, dinner on the beach, snorkeling, and conversation. We pray that you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" -Joseph, Sarah, Drew, Faith
Wonderful Christmas memories!
Thank you so much for creating all the wonderful Christmas memories. Everything has been amazing. Every morsel of food was the best. You both went above and beyond to make everything excellent. May you have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year. May God show you his love and joy." -Mark & Teresa Tucker
Thank you for an amazing vacation
Thank you for an amazing vacation. From snorkeling to fishing to hiking, you helped us create so many fun memories! Not to mention a super fun New Years Eve celebration and extra-special triple birthday party! The food was absolutely spectacular, so delicious and thoughtful. We loved seeing the kids try (and enjoy!) so many new things. We had a blast, thanks again! Until next time
All Time Favorite Family Trip
This very last minute vacation ended up being one of my all time favorite family trips ever. The balance between relaxing and activities, the comfortable boat, and the perfect food were exactly what we needed after a Covid Christmas, Thank you Michael & Casey and I hope to see you for a repeat before too long.
We will be back soon!
Thank you Michael and Casey for such a fun long weekend on the Champs Elysees! You guys are the BEST. The food, cocktails, games, and activities were all 100%. Sorry that you had to endure our terrible karaoke voices and thanks for putting up with our endless requests for spicy margaritas. Casey your food was DELISH. And now you can add crepes to your repertoire. You can tell your future guests you learned from two french clowns. Much love from all of us and we will be back soon! Thanks for making Antoine's bday so special!

Captain Michael, we could not have been better cared for and served- your calmness and attention to every detail was so appreciated. Chef Casey, the food and desserts could not have been better prepared and presented, it was truly a five star experience. You both spoiled us each and every day. We will treasure the time we shared with both of you and Allen and Lisa. The cherished memories of our trip will be retold for many years to come! -Love Jill & Steve
You guys exceeded ALL expectations
Casey & Michael, I am admittedly not the best with words, so I will just go ahead and put an *asterisk* by this entry. Seven days ago we stepped onto this boat barely knowing y'all, and now we feel like we have two new friends for life! We weren't sure what kind of adventure this would turn out to be, but you guys exceeded ALL expectations. Not to mention we braved a *Cat 5* hurricane mid week! We couldn't have asked for a better crew to brave the storm with. I think it is safe to say that Robert's 40th was the trip of a lifetime. Our boys will remember this forever from the fishing to the Uno games and all the fun in between, y'all have certainly stamped a little place in their hearts and ours. We love you guys, see you in Belize! (ps bring Rummikub!) -Christi & Robert
We couldn't have dreamed of such a perfect vacation
Casey & Michael, Considering this was a last minute impulsive click on the Ipad, we couldn't have dreamed of such a perfect vacation. Thank you so much for welcoming us to your home and being our bff's this week! Casey, the food was over the top fantastic and I never dreamed I would gain weight on this trip! It was so nice to be spoiled for a week. Michael, Your itinerary was perfect, thanks for showing us this gorgeous place! My 20 year dream has been fulfilled and was more fun than I ever expected. Great snorkel spots and beach bars throughout! Thanks so much from your new friends from Tulsa. -Mike & Lesa
Above & beyond our expectations!
Dear Casey & Michael I want you both to know how special you guys made this trip for us. From the moment we talked on the phone until this very moment writing in this book you both have gone above and beyond our expectations. The food was amazing - Casey - you even picked up the very specific requests we (or I) had. Honestly, it was better than any restaurant. You seriously spoiled us for next week! The diving was Awesome! Thank you Michael for being so patient with me & making me feel comfortable. Also thanks for not letting me get stung by a jellyfish or lose my eyelashes! We love how you tailored our trip to our specific needs going to locations we wouldn't be able to or be more difficult by jeep. Your knowledge of the area (all the islands and folklore) is very impressive. We also very much enjoyed playing Rummikub and Uno. The coffee martinis were delicious!! We hope you guys will come spend some time with us in St. John. We will send our friends your way as well. Thank you for an amazing time and lets stay in touch.
Truly unforgettable!
Thank you so very much for making this trip truly unforgettable! You took care of our every wish and were so kind to our children, just like family. We enjoyed the games, movies, jetskis, paddleboard, floating mat, dinner on the beach, snorkeling, and conversation. We pray that you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!" -Joseph, Sarah, Drew, Faith
Wonderful Christmas memories!
Thank you so much for creating all the wonderful Christmas memories. Everything has been amazing. Every morsel of food was the best. You both went above and beyond to make everything excellent. May you have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year. May God show you his love and joy." -Mark & Teresa Tucker
Thank you for an amazing vacation
Thank you for an amazing vacation. From snorkeling to fishing to hiking, you helped us create so many fun memories! Not to mention a super fun New Years Eve celebration and extra-special triple birthday party! The food was absolutely spectacular, so delicious and thoughtful. We loved seeing the kids try (and enjoy!) so many new things. We had a blast, thanks again! Until next time
All Time Favorite Family Trip
This very last minute vacation ended up being one of my all time favorite family trips ever. The balance between relaxing and activities, the comfortable boat, and the perfect food were exactly what we needed after a Covid Christmas, Thank you Michael & Casey and I hope to see you for a repeat before too long.
We will be back soon!
Thank you Michael and Casey for such a fun long weekend on the Champs Elysees! You guys are the BEST. The food, cocktails, games, and activities were all 100%. Sorry that you had to endure our terrible karaoke voices and thanks for putting up with our endless requests for spicy margaritas. Casey your food was DELISH. And now you can add crepes to your repertoire. You can tell your future guests you learned from two french clowns. Much love from all of us and we will be back soon! Thanks for making Antoine's bday so special!
