Kelea’s Crew

Captain Dan’s passion for the water started at an early age along the coast of Delaware. He developed his skills after moving to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, where he learned to read the wind and the water for both surfing and sailing. He obtained his Captain’s license in North Carolina, and quickly began guiding on the water and sharing his love of nature and the sea.

Dan worked on Bald Head Island, North Carolina helping in the development of an outdoor adventure company. He obtained his US Sailing Association Certification and American Sailing Association Certification, and began instructing others on sailing. During which and since, he has owned several personal sailboats and captained others, allowing him to learn and hone in his skill as a Captain.

Alli was born on the East Coast where as a young girl she grew up with a passion for the ocean and adventure passed to her by her father. In High School, Alli participated in multiple Outward Bound wilderness classes, and from there the adventure never stopped. She attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington, during which time she began working for the same sailing and kayaking company where she met her future husband, Dan.

Alli has grown up with a passion for cooking food, that not only tastes good and looks good, but that is good for you. She began cooking at a young age, preparing meals for her family of five, and continues to create beautiful dishes with love and artistry. She was, also, awarded First Place in the 2016 VICL Culinary Competition.

Dan and Alli met in the Summer of 2009 on Bald Head Island, North Carolina, where they worked running kayak trips and sailing excursions. Together they managed the company, never losing sight of their passion for travel. From the North Shore of Hawaii, to the coastlines of Costa Rica, the couple began their adventures together starting that summer. After sailing their personal sailboat, Goose , over 2,500 miles from North Carolina to the Bahamas and back they discovered their love for the islands.

They moved to the Virgin Islands to pursue their love for the sea and sailing, where they began working for a popular watersports company. Dan captained a 50ft catamaran, running day charters around the BVI and USVI, and Alli managed the hotel’s land and sea based watersports activities, meanwhile obtaining her certifications to crew.

After living together in the Virgin Islands for three years, the couple married in the summer of 2016 and they have been a Captain and Crew team ever since. They continue to get out on the water to snorkel, surf, sail and fish whenever the opportunity allows. Whether searching for lobsters, searching for waves, or simply sailing, they always enjoy their time spent on the water.

One of their favorite quotes is, “The Virgin Islands were meant to be viewed from the water.” s/v Kelea allows them to share their love for the islands, the sea, and all the two have to offer, with all of her guests.

Kelea Guest Reviews

November, 2017 guests on KELEA say:

We have been coming to the BVI and French West Indies since the late 90´s. At last count we just completed our 9th trip, most recently on the ´Kelea´ in the BVI´s.

Our first trip was on an old Cat named the Last Fancy with a husband and wife that were owners/operators. We had the time of our life and we never realized that we did not know what we did not know - that is to say there were some mighty beautiful boats out there. We soon realized that we had to come back and charter a newer/bigger boat with more amenities. We did this numerous times and it seems that each boat was nicer and each crew was better than the last.

Our experience on Kelea was no different - from a mighty 65 footer that can cruise at 9+ knots to the beautiful salon of blonde woods and the largest galley I have ever seen. Because she can provision and hold so much we never had to stop and we wanted for absolutely nothing the entire week! And this was 8 passengers and 2 crew!

This leads me to the crew - Dan and Alli Shivone... As I mentioned we have had the privilege to have chartered some of the finest Cat´s in the Caribbean and thus experienced some of the best crews. I can categorically state without any hesitation that Dan and Alli were the best! It seemed that all of our personalities meshed perfectly from Alli´s bubbly and energetic persona to Dan´s down to business yet dry and quick wit. All this lent itself to not only a wonderful trip from their technical abilities but also their personal qualities that led to great discussions, fun games, superb dives and lots and lots of laughs!

My wife and I highly recommend this boat but more importantly - this crew - for your dream vacation and the time of your life!

Dan and Alli Shivone did a spectacular job of hosting us on Kelea and I wanted you to know they made our trip very special! Please tell anybody that is considering a trip on Kelea that they will have a wonderful boat, the most talented captain and chef, and more importantly the nicest people one could ever hope to meet!
