Born1969

Andell was born and raised in Grenada. Growing up in a fishing town he was exposed to boats and the ocean from a very young age. As a young child he accompanied the boats with the task of diving down to un-snag fishing nets, solidifying his comfort with the ocean and his reputation for “having salt in his bones”.
It is said that every picture he drew as a very young child included a sailboat with a stick figure and his name alongside it - clearly destined to be a boat captain.

As a young adult, through dogged persistence, he was afforded the opportunity to sail spending hours of his own time mastering his skills at the helm to be one of the best, and continued to master the skills required to be a great captain.

Once acquiring his RYA 200T offshore captains license in 1990, his experience has included roles as Dock Master, Crewed Charter captain, Bareboat Charter captain, Private yacht captain, Delivery captain on all ranges of vessels including both monohulls and catamarans with guest capacity anywhere from 2 to 12 guests. His knowledge of the islands is extensive from Venezuela all the way to the BVI.
Andell is a gregarious and an engaging individual. He is a kind and generous host who respectfully engages with his guests with a relaxed and calm demeanor. It is a pleasure to be in his company.
He enjoys collaborating with his charter guests creating a customized charter itinerary as per their wish list and is great with children too.

Jasmine was born on the small island of Guernsey, one of the Channel Islands close to the coast of France. She has a successful career in Finance as a qualified accountant but soon realized her passion was in the hospitality industry. After a few visits to The West Indies, Caribbean, she made the decision that that was where she wanted to live and make her home.

As an entrepreneur, Jasmine has owned & led three highly successful beach venues and restaurants in the Caribbean. She has always been very hands on whether in the kitchen or front of house, her love of cooking and serving her guests is her greatest passion.

After a career as a restauranteur, she decided to pivot towards yachting, starting out as crew on yachts out of Mustique, Grenadines. She then worked for a few years on a tall mast schooner serving over 40 passengers while out on Charter as first officer/purser organizing everything from guest services, dining, tours, and made sure everything for the guest was efficiently taken care of.

She recently completed a charter season in Greek Islands as Chef/Chief Stew before returning to her roots in the Caribbean as Chef/Stew and ensuring her Charter service plan allows her guests to find that peaceful place to escape to.

Whether it´s cruising to a secluded beach paradise or visiting the Islands must see spots or anything in-between you´re the boss, simply point the way and Andell and Jasmine will assure you´re making the most of living in the moment while you´re making life´s unforgettable memories in the Virgin Islands.

Dolphin Daze Guest Reviews

You Anticipated All Our Wishes

It has been seven unfrogettable days that we were glad to spend with such a relaxing team. We have been a hyperactive group, that wanted at least five dives per day.

You anticipated all of our wishes before we could mention them.

See you again soon.

Amazing Trip

I cannot thank you enough for such an amazing trip and experience. I enjoy the late night stories on the flybridge! You will be truly missed and I thank your from the bottom of my heart.


We will keep in contact and will look back at the memories forever.

Epic Experience

We went from 82, sunny and a light Caribbean breeze to heavy winds, snow and cold weather in NC! Ugh!!


With that said, we had an epic experience with Capt Syl and Stew Jazzy. They are incredible people, customer focused and relaxed. Our family and friends had an experience of a lifetime and look forward to sailing with them again.

Unforgettable Christmas

Thank you so much for an unforgettable Christmas vacation!

You both helped us create family memories. this trip has been everything we could hope for!

Thank you so much for all of the care and professionalism! Best of luck on your future outings.

Wearing Different Hats

I had the chance to spend 4 weeks on a sailboat this summer cruising around Corfu.

Jasmine was the chef, the stewardess and also the first mate on board. She seemed to be on duty 24/7.
She was very attentive to everyone on board and always made sure that we had all of our needs and requests satisfied. She always juggled between her different hats and I honestly admire her ability to do so while keeping a calm and happy attitude.

She paid great attention not only to the quality of the meals , but also to the presentation.
I was lucky to have my birthday on board, as she knew my love for seafood, Jasmine prepared from scratch a delicious paella.

I would recommend Jasmine without any hesitation and I do hope that our path cross again one day on a boat.

Commitment to Quality Service

In July I was fortunate enough to charter a sailing yacht with Jasmine Schneider /Welch aboard as hostess / chef. The boat was kept in immaculate condition with every detail being carefully thought out and organised. Mealtimes were especially exciting as Jasmine had carefully planned and executed some super recipes ideally suited to dining on a boat. Always using fresh, locally sourced ingredients jasmine impressed the crew each evening with a different meal, carefully chosen to include all members with different dietary requirements. I would highly Jasmine as a chef / hostess on any luxury yacht as I believe her commitment to quality service and knowledge of both cooking and entertaining are second to none.

Accomodated All Our Requests

We joined captain Sylvio on our very first sailing charter in the BVI’s in 2008 and again on our
second charter in 2017. My husband and I are not boaters, but we really enjoy cruising vacations
and found Captain Sylvio to be very accepting of this as he accommodated all our requests during our vacations cruising the BVI’s.
We will definitely vacation with him again.

5 Charters With Sylvio!

After having vacationed in various countries over the years, our family wanted to experience a different kind of adventure. We reached out to Sylvio for information on chartering. Sylvio is an experienced captain who knows the BVI’s like the back of his hand. To date we have been Mr. LeBlanc guests on 5 incredible charters and cannot wait to return in the future. He is an engaged and generous host, and he made our sailing vacations memorable.

Our Best Vacation!

We met Mr. Sylvio Leblanc through our sons´ school and sporting activities. During our conversations we came to realize that Mr. LeBlanc was a Charter Captain in the Caribbean, we were curious as to how these charter vacation worked, he was more than happy to passionately educate us on the subject and in turn we expressed keen interest in joining him in the future. It was not long after we joined him and in the BVI’s on a Xmas Charter in 2018/2019. That vacation turned out to be the best we have ever experienced, Mr. LeBlanc not only hosted and guided us non sailors, but he also happily educated and trained us on all things nautical during the entire charter. We will always cherish the experience and memories and hope to join him on Charter in the future wherever in the world he decided to cast off to.

Captain Jason, I´ve really enjoyed watching you and Mindy work together, when in the kitchen and all of the duties on the boat. Your positive attitude is awesome and made this trip amazing.

I could go on and on about how amazing this trip has been, but I might run out of paper.

So many laughs and so much fun. Truly a trip of a lifetime.

We Loved Every Minute

What a Trip! the laughs, funs and good times and people were what made it a trip of a lifetime. Chef Mindy deserves special mention for every meal cooked - each one was beyond delicious. And Jason for answering the same questions over and over - haha- and keeping all the toys ready for all of us to enjoy. We appreciate everything y´all did for us to make our trip magical.

We loved every minute.

We felt like royalty!

Thank you again for a trip of a lifetime!

The first day was our son´s 10th birthday and it was one Jack will never forget. Thank you for spoiling him with his favorite meal in the whole world!

Every meal was phenomenal and elegantly served. We felt like royalty! So many favorites mixed with delicious new foods to try.

Spending Easter on Dolphin Daze was so special - coloring eggs and finding them and going on shore to a beautiful Easter Morning church service!

The icing on the cake was renewing our vows for our 20th Anniversary at the hands of Captain Jason followed by a 20´s swing dance party! Wigs, costumes and all - Mindy you are a Master of Costumes and fun.

Incredible!

Where do I begin?
This trip has been a dream of ours and to be able to be here fulfilled it, and with you was incredible!

From the moment we stepped on Dolphin Daze, you took care of every need BEFORE we even knew we needed it. Our daughters will never forget any detail and return will we.

From the fabulous food, delicious cocktails, fun hikes, water mat antics, sunset cocktails to the excursions - all made us feel so special - new friends for life!

Many many thanks!

Priceless!

I cannot say enough good things about this trip. You guys went over and above to accomodate us and make sure we were having fun. Every bit of food and cocktail consumed on this trip was amazing. Y´all may not realize this but beyond the things that you did to make our trip wonderful, you gave us an apportunity to forget about day to day duties back home by allowing us to just be our pre-kid, pre-responsibility selves and thats what made this trip priceless.

Lifetime Trip

What a fabulous trip! We truly enjoyed every moment - from our gourmet meals to the fantastic excursions.

I Laughed More Than I Ever Have.

Jason and Mindy thank you for helping me slide into my 50th year! It will certainly be memories I will never forget. From Beginning to end every detail was thought of and taken care of with a smiling face. Every meal and drink was made to perfection. I think I laughed more than I ever have and truly loved every second spent with your guys!
I truly hope our paths cross again.

Cannot Thank You Enough

I know you all are preparing for your next guests tomorrow but I wanted to reach out and say thank you again. I cannot thank you all enough for making our 50 Years of Tita trip one of the best I have ever had in my life. Everything was perfect and so well thought out. I know that so much effort went in on your parts but you both made it look effortless. We hated to leave and getting back to work and life was no fun today but at least we were able to escape for a while. I hope you all have a great season. You are both so, so good at what you do. Be careful and have fun coaching up your next guests on Mexican Train Dominoes. We will definitely be back once our livers recover.

What A Fabulous Week

Thank you so much for all our fun experiences - old and new. Our word of the day helped expand our grey matter i.e. efficacy, smarmy, ...... Our drinks of the day throughout the days helped us realize our need for AA meetings :)
Seriously we enjoyed everything about our week so much, the food was fabulous and the company superb.
See you soon
