NationalitySouth African


CAPTAIN - ADRIAN MILLER
nationality - SOUTH AFRICAN, languages - English

I started yachting 15 years ago after working in the fishing industry for a period of time, but the calling of the ocean started when I was still learning to walk. My father was a commander in the South African Navy and in his days as a little boy could be found jumping from boat to boat, wreaking havoc in the navy yard with a small platoon of men and women chasing after me!
I have been very fortunate to have travelled to some incredible and remote places in my career with the likes of the Maldives, South East Asia and the Galapagos archipelago. I am a marine engineer by trade but a few years ago decided that I could do a better job of running a yacht, so I went off and got my Captain’s license. I have successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, South China Sea and Pacific Ocean multiple times. I have been awarded the charter captain of the year in 2019 whilst I was Captain onboard a large, beautiful, extreme watersports based charter catamaran called Cartouche. I also raced inflatable power boats and was world champion in 2008.
I am a diver, surfer and a kite surf instructor. In my spare time I enjoy reading and making up excuses to not go on early morning runs with Chanelle.

CHEF - CHANELLE HITCHCOCK
nationality SOUTH AFRICAN languages ENGLISH

As the person ultimately responsible for all yummy things onboard and for providing superior hospitality service to meet the owner’s and guests’ expectations, I also play the role of deckhand, entertainer and professional dolphin spotter.
Unlike my famous screenwriter’s namesake, the leading character will not be killed off in this story. I am a
culinary trained galley wizard being able to whip up anything from delicious eggs Benedict to delectable desserts with everything in between!
I grew up on a wine farm in South Africa and I’m one of three girls, being the Tom boy of the family, I
never shied away from hard, honest and dirty work helping my father. My family come from a farming background, mostly sheep farmers. I have the eyes of a hawk when it comes to detail and pride myself on time management and attentiveness. I am forever learning and pushing myself and have a never say never attitude. My hobbies are sheep wrestling, discovering new recipes and dishes and my latest vice is dragging Adi on torturous early morning runs. I’m a fitness addict!!

MATE - GIDEON LAUBSCHER
nationality SOUTH AFRICAN languages ENGLISH, AFRIKAANS

From as far back as I can remember, my heart has always belonged to the ocean. Growing up around boats and spending countless weekends fishing instilled in me a deep love for maritime life. For the past five years, I’ve poured my soul into racing offshore thundercats - a pursuit that ignites my spirit like no other. When I’m not tearing through waves on my race boat, you’ll find me casting lines on a fishing vessel, soaking in every moment of the sea’s embrace.
Last year, I had the incredible opportunity to work on yachts, diving headfirst into the world I’ve always dreamed of. Those months were transformative, shaping me and deepening my understanding of yacht operations. The experience I gained was priceless, fueling my determination to pursue a career where the sea is my office and the horizon my playground. With each adventure, I’m one step closer to living out my maritime dreams.

STEWARDESS - KLARESE NEL
nationality SOUTH AFRICAN languages ENGLISH, AFRIKAANS

After honing my skills by building a successfull 10 year carreer in the film and TV industry as a costume, hair and makeup Designer, stylist, barber and masseuse, i felt that it was the perfect complimentary to take to sea, as yachting allows to create real-life ,surreal experiences for guests, much like creating worlds for audiences on-Screen.
As a yacht stewardess, Klarese brings her extensive hospitality experience and her genuine passion for creating unforgettable experiences for guests. With her attention to detail and warm, welcoming demeanor, she ensures that every aspect of their journey is nothing short of perfection.

Mrs. H relayed she will be sharing her experience and referring the yacht to her well-travelled friends. I believe they will be looking to come back and visit in the future. Captain Peter was exceptional to work with. I will definitely present AQUA LIFE without hesitation to appropriate clientele when the opportunity presents!´

Charter Broker, August 2022

´First let me start by saying THANK YOU! Ami, it is always a pleasure working with you and thank you for making this easy and enjoyable. Thank you for the initial reference on Captain Peter and his crew, you were spot on.
I am thrilled to say I have just wired a 22% tip for crew to the Aqua Life account!
The clients were absolutely thrilled with the yacht and the crew. They “had an amazing time” “could not have imagined or expected better” “the crew worked really well with the crew on Squalo and they all made it such a fabulous holiday and 60th celebration”.
I saw the coordination and teamwork that went into this on the WhatsApp group and you all did an amazing job. Captain Peter thank you for the tender transport back and forth and for all of the extra effort. You really went above and beyond, I truly appreciate it. As previous crew, I know what it takes and there would have been many captains that would have told me no. From start to finish you were the complete professional and always said we can make it happen. Thank you.´
