Growing up in London Phil worked extensively within the hospitality industry. His vast experience managing teams in different restaurants throughout London and the quaint English countryside of Kent taught him the high standards of excellent customer care and service he brings to yachting.

He loves being on the ocean and enjoying the outdoors. Phil has a broad and in depth knowledge of the Caribbean from Antigua to Grenada; and has even completed an Atlantic crossing - an experience and adventure he will never forget!

He looks forward to sharing his passion with guests and taking them around the beautiful Virgin Islands. His favourite part of the day is entertaining guests with craft cocktails and tales of adventures while the sun sets.

2015
Cuan Law Trip Review I am not known for brevity, so this will be comprehensive. The short summary is: WOW, loved the Cuan Law and the BVI and you may add every superlative you can think of! My husband had planned this trip to celebrate my 60th birthday, and invited 18 friends to join us. I was mildly alarmed when I learned of the plan (20 of us, on a boat, for a week??!!) and I must say that every facet of this trip FAR exceeded my expectations. I am a pretty positive person, but people called me to express their concerns: would they be seasick, they don’t dive, or even generally like being near the water, would there be enough room for everyone, how would the food work with everyone’s different tastes, would there be enough to do, would there be too much sun, etc. etc. And this is why I wanted to write a review. To reassure anyone considering spending time on the Cuan Law that you are in for a real treat. The Crew – I know there is some fluidity with the staff (although our outgoing captain had been with the Cuan Law for 15 years, and several other crew members for 2 or more years) so I can’t guarantee who your crew will be. However, what we experienced is likely to reflect the “corporate” culture - which was a group of people who were competent, FUN, helpful, ACCOMMODATING, had great attitudes and were all around quite wonderful. There was a strong camaraderie among the staff and a genuine warmth that was palpable. There is no doubt that they contributed in a huge way to everyone’s excellent adventure. The Boat – I don’t have much of a frame of reference to compare it to, but the space was extremely well designed and lent itself to a lot of interaction. There were no lack of places to be out of the strong Caribbean sun. The trimaran is a STABLE vessel, and we hugged the coast among the British Virgin Islands. We were not in the open ocean and everyone remarked at how well they slept (with the boat gently rocking in the water.) The boat was ship-shape clean and seemed quite up-to-date. Cabins were plenty large and beds were comfortable. The Itinerary – We had a range of interests and water skills and all were happily addressed. The divers dove, those seeking certification were well taught, the snorkelers had plenty to see every day (including the Wreck of The Rhone!), those who wanted beach time had plenty of private, white sand beaches to enjoy and water sports were available too (water skiing, tubing, sailing the Hobie Cat, kayaking, etc.) I think we took advantage of everything that was offered. Most days included a hike and for those of us who went on those, we were richly rewarded with outstanding views. The captain re-arranged our plans (on his own) so that one couple who had to depart early were able to join us at The Baths on Virgin Gorda. SO APPRECIATIVE that he did that. And when our friends learned that they had to be home on Wednesday night, mid-trip, plans were made to get them to Beef Island, to catch a flight to Puerto Rico, then home. It was seamless. The British Virgin Islands are not overrun with tourists and cruise ships. It is just really chill, gorgeous and in many places, simply magical. Each island, each part of the day, each opportunity and experience was awesome. Food – Creative, home-made options were presented at every meal and every attempt was made to be sure that everyone had what they needed. Truly impressed with what was prepared each day (3 meals AND hors d’hoeuvres) for a full boat and the crew, in a galley kitchen. And not just thrown together – there was serious presentation involved! We received a Questionnaire prior to the trip to make sure that our dietary needs were addressed, and that our goals for the trip were met. Check and check. There are not enough superlatives to describe how happy we ALL were with this unique experience. If you can fill the boat with folks you know (and really like!) all the better. If you are just signing up on your own, I think you will have an excellent time as well.

Thank you so much!!! It was indeed a magical week - your crew is AWESOME and totally set the tone. It was such a unique experience for all of us - and to SHARE IT - just the best. Clearly you have created the "corporate culture" that helps promote such a positive experience. Many thanks and all good wishes, Hinda

Flo That was one of the coolest adventures I have ever been on - and most of it was because of you. Thank you again for having the confidence in me to take me to the "Rhone" and the "Alice's Wonderland" sites. I was not always completely comfortable but I knew you were there if I needed help - I had complete faith and trust in you. I have always loved the ocean but I had no idea what I was missing - I am going to certify ASAP and make up for lost time. (But I think you might have spoiled me with all that you showed me) I loved the Rhone wreck - it was unbelievable - I have seen movies of stuff like that, but it was nothing like seeing it in person - touching those brass portholes, the propeller, swimming thru that hole - words can't describe how cool that was - and that turtle at the end - how could it get better than that I felt very lucky to be on one of your top five dives at Alice's - The color, the Sharks, the rocks and coral and plant life, the great fish, lobzillas - I wouldn't have seen any of it without you pointing it out If you guys ever head my way - you are more than welcome to visit/stay with me I am about one mile from the ocean in a great little beachfront town of Solana Beach California UCSD Scripps ocean research is right next to me - major marine biology stuff It was such a pleasure to be inspired by your enthusiasm and love of the ocean- you are truly gifted at what you do - you inspired me to get going on my next book - to do exactly what you did for me " open new worlds and possibilities to others that they did not know existed" I can't thank you enough.. Gordon
2015
We had an unbelievable time aboard the Cuan. Everyone on board agreed that it was truly a trip of a lifetime, and one we will never forget. The crew was fantastic and overly accommodating. They ALL had great personalities and great sense of humors and were very easy to get along with. I believe our itinerary was a little different than they were used to, but, they had no problems in accommodating us and making sure we were entertained. As a matter of fact, as we sat down for dinner the night we got off the boat, we tried to come up with criticisms of the trip. The only one we could come up with was that we wished we had more snacks (chips, pretzels, etc.) between meals and hors d’oeurves. But, even that really isn’t a fair criticism, because all we really had to do was ask, and the crew was happy to provide. Thank you for the use of yours and Duncan’s boat. It was a trip we know we will never forget and something we hope we get to do again. Thanks again, and thanks for the e-mail. Jeff

Phil and Flo are awesome. They definitely know there way around the yacht, the kitchen and the islands. I would definitely recommend them and Deep Blue if you are considering booking a charter. Scott
January 2020
The crew for Deep Blue 1 was a lot of fun. Captain Phil was quite the host and really funny. First mate Flo actually has a degree in marine science so she was able to answer all of my questions regarding what I was seeing while snorkeling. I would love to have scuba dived with her – it would have been really cool to dive with someone who is so knowledgeable. Scott C

Cuan Law Trip Review I am not known for brevity, so this will be comprehensive. The short summary is: WOW, loved the Cuan Law and the BVI and you may add every superlative you can think of! My husband had planned this trip to celebrate my 60th birthday, and invited 18 friends to join us. I was mildly alarmed when I learned of the plan (20 of us, on a boat, for a week??!!) and I must say that every facet of this trip FAR exceeded my expectations. I am a pretty positive person, but people called me to express their concerns: would they be seasick, they don’t dive, or even generally like being near the water, would there be enough room for everyone, how would the food work with everyone’s different tastes, would there be enough to do, would there be too much sun, etc. etc. And this is why I wanted to write a review. To reassure anyone considering spending time on the Cuan Law that you are in for a real treat. The Crew – I know there is some fluidity with the staff (although our outgoing captain had been with the Cuan Law for 15 years, and several other crew members for 2 or more years) so I can’t guarantee who your crew will be. However, what we experienced is likely to reflect the “corporate” culture - which was a group of people who were competent, FUN, helpful, ACCOMMODATING, had great attitudes and were all around quite wonderful. There was a strong camaraderie among the staff and a genuine warmth that was palpable. There is no doubt that they contributed in a huge way to everyone’s excellent adventure. The Boat – I don’t have much of a frame of reference to compare it to, but the space was extremely well designed and lent itself to a lot of interaction. There were no lack of places to be out of the strong Caribbean sun. The trimaran is a STABLE vessel, and we hugged the coast among the British Virgin Islands. We were not in the open ocean and everyone remarked at how well they slept (with the boat gently rocking in the water.) The boat was ship-shape clean and seemed quite up-to-date. Cabins were plenty large and beds were comfortable. The Itinerary – We had a range of interests and water skills and all were happily addressed. The divers dove, those seeking certification were well taught, the snorkelers had plenty to see every day (including the Wreck of The Rhone!), those who wanted beach time had plenty of private, white sand beaches to enjoy and water sports were available too (water skiing, tubing, sailing the Hobie Cat, kayaking, etc.) I think we took advantage of everything that was offered. Most days included a hike and for those of us who went on those, we were richly rewarded with outstanding views. The captain re-arranged our plans (on his own) so that one couple who had to depart early were able to join us at The Baths on Virgin Gorda. SO APPRECIATIVE that he did that. And when our friends learned that they had to be home on Wednesday night, mid-trip, plans were made to get them to Beef Island, to catch a flight to Puerto Rico, then home. It was seamless. The British Virgin Islands are not overrun with tourists and cruise ships. It is just really chill, gorgeous and in many places, simply magical. Each island, each part of the day, each opportunity and experience was awesome. Food – Creative, home-made options were presented at every meal and every attempt was made to be sure that everyone had what they needed. Truly impressed with what was prepared each day (3 meals AND hors d’hoeuvres) for a full boat and the crew, in a galley kitchen. And not just thrown together – there was serious presentation involved! We received a Questionnaire prior to the trip to make sure that our dietary needs were addressed, and that our goals for the trip were met. Check and check. There are not enough superlatives to describe how happy we ALL were with this unique experience. If you can fill the boat with folks you know (and really like!) all the better. If you are just signing up on your own, I think you will have an excellent time as well.

Thank you so much!!! It was indeed a magical week - your crew is AWESOME and totally set the tone. It was such a unique experience for all of us - and to SHARE IT - just the best. Clearly you have created the "corporate culture" that helps promote such a positive experience. Many thanks and all good wishes, Hinda

Flo That was one of the coolest adventures I have ever been on - and most of it was because of you. Thank you again for having the confidence in me to take me to the "Rhone" and the "Alice's Wonderland" sites. I was not always completely comfortable but I knew you were there if I needed help - I had complete faith and trust in you. I have always loved the ocean but I had no idea what I was missing - I am going to certify ASAP and make up for lost time. (But I think you might have spoiled me with all that you showed me) I loved the Rhone wreck - it was unbelievable - I have seen movies of stuff like that, but it was nothing like seeing it in person - touching those brass portholes, the propeller, swimming thru that hole - words can't describe how cool that was - and that turtle at the end - how could it get better than that I felt very lucky to be on one of your top five dives at Alice's - The color, the Sharks, the rocks and coral and plant life, the great fish, lobzillas - I wouldn't have seen any of it without you pointing it out If you guys ever head my way - you are more than welcome to visit/stay with me I am about one mile from the ocean in a great little beachfront town of Solana Beach California UCSD Scripps ocean research is right next to me - major marine biology stuff It was such a pleasure to be inspired by your enthusiasm and love of the ocean- you are truly gifted at what you do - you inspired me to get going on my next book - to do exactly what you did for me " open new worlds and possibilities to others that they did not know existed" I can't thank you enough..

We had an unbelievable time aboard the Cuan. Everyone on board agreed that it was truly a trip of a lifetime, and one we will never forget. The crew was fantastic and overly accommodating. They ALL had great personalities and great sense of humors and were very easy to get along with. I believe our itinerary was a little different than they were used to, but, they had no problems in accommodating us and making sure we were entertained. As a matter of fact, as we sat down for dinner the night we got off the boat, we tried to come up with criticisms of the trip. The only one we could come up with was that we wished we had more snacks (chips, pretzels, etc.) between meals and hors d’oeurves. But, even that really isn’t a fair criticism, because all we really had to do was ask, and the crew was happy to provide. Thank you for the use of yours and Duncan’s boat. It was a trip we know we will never forget and something we hope we get to do again. Thanks again, and thanks for the e-mail. Jeff

Phil and Flo are awesome. They definitely know there way around the yacht, the kitchen and the islands. I would definitely recommend them and Deep Blue if you are considering booking a charter. Scott
January 2020
The crew for Deep Blue 1 was a lot of fun. Captain Phil was quite the host and really funny. First mate Flo actually has a degree in marine science so she was able to answer all of my questions regarding what I was seeing while snorkeling. I would love to have scuba dived with her – it would have been really cool to dive with someone who is so knowledgeable. Scott C

Our crew was friendly and accommodating e felt like we were welcomed into there home. the vessel was clean and you worked hard to make us comfortable and addressed all our concerns effectively. The food was excellent, tailored to our request and very well presented. Flo even cooked u a proper English Christmas Dinner. The area we sailed at was beautiful. We would happily recommend Flo and Phil on the Deep Blue to anyone who is looking to enjoy a charter in the USVI. They are friendly, welcoming and extremely professional. They provided plenty to do and allow us free time when we wanted it . Over all it was exceptional vacation -Roger
