DENNIS WHELLER, CAPTAIN:
A lifelong yachtsman, Captain Dennis Wheeler consistently offers his guests a truly unique and memorable, 5-star experience. Born in New Jersey and raised in St Croix and Texas, Captain Dennis has lived a fascinating life. An engineer by training, and a successful global technology entrepreneur, he sold the rights to an electric powertrain technology he developed, and moved back to the Caribbean to focus on his love of the sea.

He has successfully refit and restored several vessels and has cruised extensively throughout the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

Guests benefit from his excellent helmsmanship, incredible customer service, and deep knowledge of the Virgin Islands. He is eager to share stories from his fascinating career and world travels.

Dennis and his wife Tania have a 3-year-old son and live in St. Thomas.


ALYSE AREHART, CHEF:
Alyse is a born and raised Floridian, growing up in a small town before spending ten formative years in Miami. She has always enjoyed traveling and exploring, and she realized her passion for the natural world by earning a degree in Environmental Studies at the University of Miami. Alyse has varied professional experiences in bartending, laboratory science, environmental non-profits, and ecotourism, but she eventually discovered that her superior service skills and outdoorsy spirit were a perfect fit for the yachting industry. Since 2015, she has cruised the U.S. eastern seaboard, the Bahamas, and throughout the Caribbean. She has been in the U.S. Virgin Islands since 2017.

Alyse cares about responsible food sourcing, inspired preparation, and serving colorful, nourishing food that gives her guests the energy to seize the day. She has attended a “Farm Culinary” course in Washington state, obtained a culinary certificate at Ashburton Cookery School in the English countryside, cooked locally in a fine dining establishment and for World Central Kitchen´s covid-19 relief efforts. Her culinary style is influenced by the flavors of the Caribbean, many of which are shared in Florida cooking. She loves incorporating these regional ingredients into her menus to create playful yet crowd-pleasing dishes.

What Alyse loves most about the V.I. is the lovely people, shoreline panoramas, and fresh tropical fruits. She is also grateful for the reefs and waters that her industry relies on, and does what she can to encourage their preservation. On charter, when she´s not in the galley, you´ll find her leading snorkeling and hiking excursions, yoga sessions, or playing the ukulele. She is an easy-going spirit who enjoys making people feel right at home while showing them the vacation of their dreams.

News Years Charter 2021

What a great way to imagine the new year New year and good riddance to 2020. We definitely had the New Year eve jam going on. It was a truly magnificent experience sailing of the USVI on the Cool Breeze. From our sheltered cove in hurricane hole we were able to do it all. We hiked some of St John´s Best terranes, drink like fish and ate like kings and queens. Could not have dreamt up a better idea during a global pandemic. Thanks for everything we had a great time and hope to see you again for another visit.

March 2020 - COOL BOAT!

Cool Breeze is a cool boat! Very comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Nice open family area and great decks. We liked it better than the catamaran-style boats.

The crew was fantastic. The food was high end restaurant level. Always offering us drinks. Great snorkeling tour guiding. Our family of 3 teenagers loved it and are asking about coming back.

Thanks,
Andrew

Captain John is the best captain we could have asked for. He exceeded our expectations with respect to what we were able to see, where we visited and he was so knowledgeable about the area, the sea life as well as where and when to visit our desired locations.
Alyse did an amazing job with the food! We asked for a tasty but lighter menu and boy did she deliver. Every meal was beautiful, balanced and delicious while leaving us satisfied and energized.
They kept the boat clean, were courteous at all times and were extremely attentive to our needs and wants.

The meals were all picture perfect and delicious. Alyse asked us when we wanted our meals, made accommodations for our likes and dislikes and even made a menu change after some good luck hunting lobster The food left us full but feeling light enough to head back into the water instead of taking a nap. She even shared her recipes with us after we told her what our favorite meals were. She made us a special Valentine’s dinner as well and the desserts were just perfect.

The boat was amazing and the staff kept the place spotless. Even making our beds and wiping down our bathrooms one or twice a day. She ran like a dream and got us everywhere we wanted to go very comfortably

Captain John did such a great job with the itinerary. We give him very little direction as to where we wanted to go and he just made suggestions, offered options and delivered. When he saw what we were enjoying he made additional suggestions and we couldn’t have asked for a better itinerary.

New Years 2018/2019

We had a great time on Cool Breeze. John and Alyse were excellent. The food was out of this world and their attention made us all very comfortable. Chartering in general is not for everyone, but a perfect fit if you love the water and all that comes with it. My family had the trip of a lifetime.
Thank you very much.
