MEET THE CREW - 2019/20 SEASON

Captain - Kyle Glowacky
Chef/Host - Tim Montgommery
1st Mate/Stewardess - Amanda Dietter


Your skipper, Captain Kyle, has been near the sea his entire life. Growing up a New Englander, Kyle began working in the waters off the coast of New Hampshire in lobster boats, eventually finding his way into sailing tall ships. After attending Emerson College and graduating with a B.F.A., he soon realized it’s hard to make money as an artist. He then returned to the water and has been sailing professionally ever since. Captain Kyle knows these waters like the back of his hand having spent seven years chartering the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Now back after a two-year hiatus working as a licensed officer aboard National Geographic expedition ships from Alaska to Baja California Sur, he longed to return to his roots sailing on a more intimate and personal scale. He strives to deliver a safe trip while ensuring his guests have the most fun and memorable time of their lives.

Your First Mate/Chef Tim Montgomery has achieved his life’s aspiration. After working nearly a decade in landlocked, stressful kitchens, he decided to take a more relaxed intimate approach while preparing high end meals dedicated to sourcing fresh quality local ingredients. Only now he works on Caribbean time. Tim began his career working under one of the United States top chefs, Carl McConnell. During this time Tim honed his skills by working endless hours preparing James Beard nominated dishes. After attending culinary school and furthering his education, Tim decided to leave the nest and see the world. He left the Midwest and headed for the seas working for the prestigious eco-tourism company National Geographic Lindblad Expeditions. He takes pleasure in bringing guests together with his family-style dining approach or by wowing them with his expertly plated prix fixe dishes. An avid scuba diver, adventurer, and naturalist, join him by snorkeling the Caribbean reefs and then allow him to prepare your favorite dishes as you enjoy staring out into the serene blue waters.

Your Stewardess Amanda Dietter is no stranger to the water. Being born on the Gulf coast she spent her early years gaining understanding and adoration for the ocean. Her working career began at her father’s catering business. Some of her fondest memories were working alongside Dad in the kitchen. After earning her college degree at UNCC she began working in the hectic corporate sector of Charlotte, North Carolina. Over the past ten years she found herself visiting and quickly falling in love with the Islands. In 2017 she spontaneously decided to call St. John home. She has an immense love for the outdoors, fishing, snorkeling, and hiking. On a whim, friends asked her to help move their boat from St. Marteen to St. John. In this time, Amanda gained a newfound passion for sailing and an even greater admiration for the sea. Allow her to share her passion with you and indulge in some of the finest cocktails the Islands have to offer.

While exploring the perfect beaches of St. John these three quickly became best friends. Their combined passion for water, excellent service, and having a good time led them to partnering up and sharing their interests with their guests. Let them show you the enchanted Caribbean waters and give a vacation of a lifetime to you, your friends, and family.
Come aboard as guests and leave as lifelong friends.

Dolphin Daze Guest Reviews

Excellent Captain and Tremendous Chef!

Kyle is an excellent seaman and a great captain. For a young guy, he knows his stuff and is a great representative of your fleet.
Tim is likewise a tremendous chef and mate. Great food, personality, etc. He’ll be a great captain. We loved them both.
Food and drinks on the preference sheet was spot on.
We would absolutely book with either of these two guys again in the future

Highest Quality Customer Service!

Let me start with this was the best trip we’ve ever been on. The professionalism of yourselves, knowledge of the area, and general customer service was of the highest quality. We would highly recommend your services to others. The meals prepared by Chef Tim were awesome, and his willingness to accommodate the kids special requests was exceptionally nice. The snorkeling, sailing, hiking, fishing were a lot of fun. The kids had an excellent time at each, as did both Kerry and myself.

Amazing Trip!

5 nights aboard with Kyle and Tim. Amazing trip on our second charter experience. A perfect mix of excitement and relaxation. We hit some great spots. Kyle is an excellent seaman and Tim put amazing food on the table. We would sail with these guys again anytime!

Great Choice of Crew!

Let´s face it - there are a LOT of boats/crews out there in the charter market to choose from. So much so, in fact, that coupled with my tendency to over-research decisions, it led to no less than a week of poring over various boat features and comparing details that really didn´t make a bit of a difference in retrospect. Looking back on the trip, the biggest factor that should have been considered was the crew - and I don´t think we could have made a better decision for our group.

Kyle and Tim were fantastic the entire week. It must be hard to size up a particular group´s dynamics and attempt to ensure that each and every person gets what they want out of the vacation - but these guys do it easily. I wasn´t sure how my 16 year old son was going to do for the week. He´s been the only teenager around on trips before and been fine, but every year is different and we really wanted him to have a good time. Kyle and Tim became his best buds that week, keeping him entertained in close quarters with 4 boring adults. He´s said multiple times that it´s far and away the favorite vacation he´s ever been on - and we´ve taken quite a few! Kyle is a seasoned sailor and has obviously spent many hours sailing a variety of boats in his career. I learned quite a bit about sailing from him during the week and was able to spend a good deal of time at the helm. Tim is a sneaky good chef. He seems to exist primarily on chips but the meals he prepares are varied in nature and all terrific! Everyone in our party enjoyed the food tremendously and he was able to easily cater to people´s specific needs.

In the end, I believe the crew makes the trip - not the boat - and you´ll be happy with your choice to sail with Kyle and Tim. We all consider them our friends and would sign up for another trip with them without hesitation.

Amazing with Each and Every Guest - Captain Only Charter

My wife and I had such an amazing time sailing the BVI with 2 other couples and Captain Kyle. As it was our first time sailing the BVI’s and doing this type of vacation, we really didn’t know what to expect when we first stepped onto our catamaran. I can’t begin to explain how amazing Captain Kyle was with each and every guest. Kyle is one of the warmest, smartest and energetic people i’ve ever met. If I was rating Captain Kyle and the experience he gave each and every guest on the boat, this review would be 5 out of 5 stars (6 out of 5 if there was such a thing).

Look for a boat with Kyle. His enthusiasm, warm hearted nature and general knowledge of the BVI’s will make this experience a trip of a lifetime. I look forward to doing this again and would recommend this trip to any.

We will be Back!

My family and 3 daughters, 14, 12,10, just experienced the vacation of a lifetime and memories and stories that we will be talking about for years. So many adventures! Capt. Kyle and Chef Tim became an extension of our family on this week long trip. What amazing sailors and chef! Te bonfire dinner, the caves, finding new caves together to explore, they knew just what our family needed. We also enjoyed quiet time in the am, reading, learning about the sea and sailing. Kyle and Tim made sailors out of my kids! We will be back!

Wow!

Wow, Wow, Wow, What ab amazing trip! We could not have asked for a better captain and chef. The itinerary was perfect. The food was delicious and the scenery was awesome. thank you for so many new, fun memories - we will be back!

Outstanding Chef!

Tim, I am writing to you today to thank you formally. The dishes that you prepared and demonstrated were not only beautifully plated, but your technique and the flavor of your food were exceptional. Not only did we experience dishes we had never tried, your professionalism was spot on and your personality kept everyone entertained. Thank you for the awesome food - outstanding chef!
