Dante Crew Profile
Captain Mason -
Raised in the Mountains of Colorado, Mason was brought up with a love of the outdoors and a deep curiosity for the natural world around him. He followed his passions of cycling, climbing and rafting, eventually leading him to Puerto Rico. As a teenager here he quickly discovered a whole new world of sailing and water sports and was instantly determined in learning everything related to this lifestyle. This new adventure took him to St. Thomas, where he worked as a First mate on a variety of charter vessels, soaking up all of the time he could get on the water and receiving his captain´s license. He ran commercial trips in the VI for two years before transitioning into yachting, where he worked as a chief officer and engineer and developed new skills and higher standards of service. After a year aboard mega yachts, Mason developed a desire to transition back into the close-knit charter industry in the VI to share his “home” and love for it on a more personal basis with guests.
Taking time to travel and really immerse himself into sailing, over the years Mason has covered most of the waters between New England and Panama. He thrives off of the ´sea life´, loves freediving, and giving his guests the chance to experience the same thrill he gets when enjoying a fresh catch!
Chef Mindy -
Raised in the historic coastal town of Charleston, South Carolina. Mindy grew up with a love and passion for all things ocean related! Her hometown is full of southern hospitality, art, history and FOOD! She worked in hospitality tourism on Kiawah and Seabrook Islands for 5 years. Mindy studied Biology from the College of Charleston and received her bachelor’s of Science Diploma in 2015 . She pursued biomedical laboratory research after graduation for 3 years. Desiring a salty life and ready to get a tan after years under fluorescent lights, she bought a boat and taught herself how to sail. She has since sailed as a first mate through the Bahamas, Caribbean Sea, San Blas Islands and has crossed the Panama Canal. Desiring a life at sea, she went to Sea School in 2019 for an STCW. She has worked as a Yacht Chef for over 4 years and was trained by Michelin Star Chefs at Ashburton Culinary Academy in the UK in 2021. Mindy has a gentle southern charm that allows you to relax, laugh, be close to nature and feel right at home with a full belly and a refreshing cocktail in hand. She loves to add that extra touch to make sure families and friends onboard are making memories that last a lifetime! She is also working towards a Captains License.
