Hannah Patten - Chef/Stew:
With over a five years of yachting service, Hannah is the Chef and owner of the luxury yacht, MY Hülya. Four years ago, Hannah became increasingly

found in the ocean, which is lovingly named Hülya Swim.

As a trained chef and stewardess of MY Hülya, Hannah not only serves as a guide to her guests but also as a personal chef who expertly prepares
local, sustainable for their enjoyment. Her years of experience as a yacht chef have taught her the importance of responsible tourism practices, and
she is dedicated to promoting sustainability in all aspects of her work.

Coral - Comfort Companion
Meet Coral, a lovable dog who was originally trained by the Southeastern Guide Dog program to serve as a guide dog for individuals with visual impairments. However, due to a visual defect of her own, Coral was unable to fulfill her duties as a working dog and was adopted by Hannah
to serve as her companion.

Now, Coral proudly serves as the mascot of Hannah and John's sailing yacht, accompanying them on their oceanic adventures and providing endless joy and entertainment. Despite her disability, Coral is a dream dog who has a thirst for knowledge and is always eager to learn new tricks. Her favorite pastime is going for rides on the boat and swimming in the ocean with her human companions. Coral is a natural-born swimmer who loves to explore the depths of the ocean, catching conch and lobster with her mouth. She has an undeniable passion for the water and is a true adventurer at heart

Coral's playful and affectionate nature has endeared her to everyone she meets, and she has become an integral part of Hannah and John's sailing crew. Whether lounging on deck or splashing in the water, Coral's presence brings a sense of joy and companionship to all those around her.

Is it August yet??!! We have not had a better family vacation. EVER. This was my husband and my second time aboard with Hannah and John. We were so impressed the first trip, that we couldn’t wait to bring our two kids back with us to share the experience again just in a new part of the Bahamas. Hanna, John and coral (the pup) are an awesome team. They make you feel as though you are home with them all day every day. They are both incredibly talented underwater photographers, and boat keepers. Hanna is a fabulous chef, she cooks up the tastiest fresh healthiest snacks, meals and cocktails. Her attention to details is amazing. There was never a meal that had the same table setting twice. Captain John is the underwater whisper; he will put out fish bait boxes for you to get up close and personal with all underwater friends. We saw (and swam with) black tip sharks, hammerhead sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, dolphins, and an abundance of beautiful fish. We pet sting rays and nurse sharks on this trip as well! Hanna and John’s passion for wildlife shows; they are kind, respectful and knowledgeable about the Sealife and definitely know how to show you a good time with them as well. My 6- and 8- year-old daughters were obsessed with the underwater scooters, stand up paddle boards and floating docks that they have aboard. They provide 5-star company and 5-star service the whole time. We have already booked out next adventure with them for whale sharks, and Bahamas again in a year. We cannot wait!!!! Thank you, Hanna and John!! We all miss you!!!!
.
After a little time and reflection I couldn’t be happier. This was a new adventure for our family that I was driving and wanting to have an experience they wouldn’t forget. It really was an amazing experience. While Mother Nature was in her glory and on full display which was incredible to be a part of. Hannah and John- you were awesome as well, there’s a lot of love on that boat. Your love for the ocean, what you do, and each other was contagious. Thank you, my friends!! The "M" Family
.
What an experience! We extended our 3 night trip to 4 because we didn't want to leave! John and Hannah were gracious hosts and instantly made us feel at home. They make an excellent team and were more than accommodating and attentive. Hannah's attention to detail and preparation of beautiful meals and drinks made the trip even more luxurious. John's knowledge and leadership made us feel safe and prepared for any adventure! Swimming with sharks, feeding pigs, cave snorkeling, hidden beaches etc. Trip of a lifetime, can't wait to come back!!! Bianca
.
OMG… can’t believe I haven’t written my review yet, must clearly be because I’m still living off my high from the most thought out, well planned, inspirational and mind blowing experience I had. I left Purely Blu charters with even more of an appreciation for the open ocean, the sea life we get to cohabit with and enjoy. Captain John is incredibly confident and knowledgeable of the seas that he’s exploring, and has the best partner by his side doing it. Hanna whipped up the best creative delicious treats for every meal and snack one could possibly imagine. Of course we were all super excited to meet sweet sea pup coral too, she’s just such an added love to this amazing experience. Not only did I have an unforgettable experience with my husband and friends, but booked to return in February with our children to let them explore with us all too. WHAT A TRIP, still on cloud 9! Anna

The vessel was fantastic, beautiful, well maintained and gave us the opportunity to do all that we wanted. And while the boat was amazing, the crew, Bret and Kendra, were could not have been better. The service and experience they created was beyond words. Bret created and delivered a boating / yachting experience that was well beyond expectations. Kendra was not only an affective “first-mate” but, more importantly to us, is a very creative chef delivering some of the best food that we have experienced. Both went out of their way to insure each of us had an event that was beyond our expectations. Alan & guests

Is it August yet??!! We have not had a better family vacation. EVER. This was my husband and my second time aboard with Hannah and John. We were so impressed the first trip, that we couldn’t wait to bring our two kids back with us to share the experience again just in a new part of the Bahamas. Hanna, John and coral (the pup) are an awesome team. They make you feel as though you are home with them all day every day. They are both incredibly talented underwater photographers, and boat keepers. Hanna is a fabulous chef, she cooks up the tastiest fresh healthiest snacks, meals and cocktails. Her attention to details is amazing. There was never a meal that had the same table setting twice. Captain John is the underwater whisper; he will put out fish bait boxes for you to get up close and personal with all underwater friends. We saw (and swam with) black tip sharks, hammerhead sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, dolphins, and an abundance of beautiful fish. We pet sting rays and nurse sharks on this trip as well! Hanna and John’s passion for wildlife shows; they are kind, respectful and knowledgeable about the Sealife and definitely know how to show you a good time with them as well. My 6- and 8- year-old daughters were obsessed with the underwater scooters, stand up paddle boards and floating docks that they have aboard. They provide 5-star company and 5-star service the whole time. We have already booked out next adventure with them for whale sharks, and Bahamas again in a year. We cannot wait!!!! Thank you, Hanna and John!! We all miss you!!!!

After a little time and reflection I couldn’t be happier. This was a new adventure for our family that I was driving and wanting to have an experience they wouldn’t forget. It really was an amazing experience. While Mother Nature was in her glory and on full display which was incredible to be a part of. Hannah and John- you were awesome as well, there’s a lot of love on that boat. Your love for the ocean, what you do, and each other was contagious. Thank you, my friends!! The "M" Family
.
What an experience! We extended our 3 night trip to 4 because we didn't want to leave! John and Hannah were gracious hosts and instantly made us feel at home. They make an excellent team and were more than accommodating and attentive. Hannah's attention to detail and preparation of beautiful meals and drinks made the trip even more luxurious. John's knowledge and leadership made us feel safe and prepared for any adventure! Swimming with sharks, feeding pigs, cave snorkeling, hidden beaches etc. Trip of a lifetime, can't wait to come back!!! Bianca

OMG… can’t believe I haven’t written my review yet, must clearly be because I’m still living off my high from the most thought out, well planned, inspirational and mind blowing experience I had. I left Purely Blu charters with even more of an appreciation for the open ocean, the sea life we get to cohabit with and enjoy. Captain John is incredibly confident and knowledgeable of the seas that he’s exploring, and has the best partner by his side doing it. Hanna whipped up the best creative delicious treats for every meal and snack one could possibly imagine. Of course we were all super excited to meet sweet sea pup coral too, she’s just such an added love to this amazing experience. Not only did I have an unforgettable experience with my husband and friends, but booked to return in February with our children to let them explore with us all too. WHAT A TRIP, still on cloud 9!

The vessel was fantastic, beautiful, well maintained and gave us the opportunity to do all that we wanted. And while the boat was amazing, the crew, Bret and Kendra, were could not have been better. The service and experience they created was beyond words. Bret created and delivered a boating / yachting experience that was well beyond expectations. Kendra was not only an affective “first-mate” but, more importantly to us, is a very creative chef delivering some of the best food that we have experienced. Both went out of their way to insure each of us had an event that was beyond our expectations. Alan & guests
