MEET THE CREW
Captain Kyle has spent his life learning from the Ocean. He was raised by his mother Danita, a USCG 100 ton Masters Captain on the ICW of south Florida and beyond, and his Grandfather Sy, who lived in the Caribbean most of his life and survived hurricane Andrew at sea. Sy was an extremely talented tradesperson, and built his cement trawler himself from a bare hull, and taught all he knew to his daughter and Grandson. Kyleʼsʼ mother Danita was making passages to Panama as early as 18, later restored a classic 62ʼ wooden motor yacht to showroom condition among many other impressive accomplishments.
From an early age Kyle was responsible for driving and maintaining the dinghy, helm duties aboard his grandfathers cement trawler on the Abaco Banks and learnt to sail in Abaco, Sailing Dinghies and aboard his mothers classic Cheoy Lee sailboat. His first license to operate a vessel unsupervised on the ICW was earned at 14, the youngest age allowed by law. He traveled between Florida, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and the UK all of his childhood and teenage years.
In his teens and early 20s, Kyle became a mechanic, learned fiberglass repair and fabrication and other skills, but gravitated towards a career as a professional guide. From Wave-runner and river tours in Charleston, Water-sports activities, Offshore sailing in the Gulf Stream and Kiteboarding in the T&C and everywhere in between, Kyle has always enjoyed meeting new people and sharing his love of nautical thrill seeking.
As far as hobbies go, Kyle enjoys Kiteboarding, Free-diving, Fishing, Diving, Wake-boarding, Horseback Riding, Sailing, Traveling, Hiking, Drone Photography, and much more.
At 23 he purchased a sailboat in New York, restored her and sailed her to the Virgin Islands over the course of 3 years. Along the way exploring the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Spanish Virgin Islands, and finally falling in love with the USVI and BVI. There he got his USCG 100 ton Masters certification, as well as Aux Sailing, Towing, Management and Leadership, STCW and Advanced SCUBA certifications.
From Captain School in Saint Thomas he was recruited right away to run a 60ʼ luxury catamaran in the BVIs, where he enjoyed hosting his guests and showing them all that the Virgin Islands have to offer. During the off season he sailed to Grenada and ran charters in the Grenadines and Saint Vincent.
After 3 great years of making life long friends and offering “the vacation of a lifetime” Kyle finally found ReAction, a veteran Term Charter Luxury Catamaran. She is the perfect vessel to offer these exceptional vacations not just in the Virgin
Islands, but all over the world!
Nicola hails from Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, the home of Shakespeare! Although she was born far from the ocean, she first scuba dived when she was just ten years old and from then she was entranced with the beauty of the ocean and of its therapeutic benefits. She holds a degree in psychology and is passionate about sharing the tranquility of SCUBA and the conservation of our oceans with all that will listen.
From working as an instructor and guide onboard yachts in the Bahamas and Virgin Islands, a five star resort in Cyprus and various other islands within Europe and the Caribbean she is never found too far from the ocean! She loves all water-sports and is particularly fond of swimming, with the aim of swimming across the English Channel in the next five years.
Nicola´s passion for cooking and travel shows in the beautiful meals that she produces. Priding herself on a fusion style from the many countries she has visited including heavy influences from Europe as well as Asia. She strives to make people happy through the meals she prepares by appealing to both taste and visual senses. Of course she is happy to accommodate dietary requirements and caters to all palates. Her menu is generally focused on healthy delicacies using the freshest local ingredients available.
Away from the Galley and the water, she loves to explore new destinations and cultures. She has also read the vows for over two hundred weddings and renewals across the world from Haiti to Norway and Miami to New Zealand.
Nicola has worked within the customer service industry for over a decade and is looking forward to welcoming you aboard ReAction and helping to create an unforgettable vacation along with Captain Kyle. Sharing her absolute passion for the ocean and providing an unforgettable culinary experience she endeavors to deliver the very best experience to all guests in and out of the water!

My Favorite Place
Thank you for an amazing trip. The BVI is my favorite place in the world so thank you for making my return trip so great. The food was incredible and Kyle you have great taste in music (I have added many more songs to my beach playlist)
I had an awesome time on ReAction. You were both wonderful hosts and made me feel comfortable right away. it was great to be able to hang out with you on NYE, scuba diving and ´dinghy slinging´.
Thanks for the Adventures!
Thank you fro an awesome week on ReAction! Everything was so tasty and I had a blast throughout the stay with you guys.
Week Filled with Family and Friends
Thank you! What a fun relaxing week filled with family, friends, some rain :), good food and good atmosphere. Thank you for everything. I´m sure we will see again down here.
Went Out Of His Way!
We as family had the pleasure of spending a week with Captain Kyle. An adventurous spirit with safety as always number one. He consistently went out of his way for us and accommodated every want and need without hesitation, even last minute (or second). I would highly recommend Kyle as your captain should you be looking for an expert on the local spirit, adventure, great cocktails and all around fun.
You Exceeded our Expectations!
You exceeded our expectations right from the start! The delicious Painkillers, Cliff Jumping, Dinghy Slingy, snorkel spots, private coves... more dinghy slinging where all WENT TO THE TOP! What an amazing week it has been with our family and dear friends! The perfect getaway after an extremely stressed and scary week. Our ´home´ this week has been Absolutely amazing! Thank you, thank you for EVERYTHING! Come visit us in Dallas so that we can play more Mah Jong!
Thank you very much for an awesome trip. Your local knowledge and incredible service made for an incredible time. Can´t wait to get back for our next cruise.
Cannot Wait to be Back!
The kids absolutely loved ´Dinghy Slinghy´, Rock Jumping into Grottos and watersports activities. The parents were happy to sneak away to a deserted beach while the kids were entertained! They played games together (and lost a lot of cards) and ate wonderful meals on the aft deck. We are still raving about the food and gave a standing ovation at the end of the week.
The trip has only been over a short while, and we are all wishing we were back together again - cannot wait to be back!
New and Exciting Adventures on Every Trip
For three years straight, I have done an annual girls trip with Kyle on his catamaran and it is always the thing I look forward to most ALL YEAR! Kyle and Nicola are the best hosts and true locals so you get everything -- from the nicest boat in the water, to awesome water toys and sports, plus local must-see places and recommendations for the most fun in the islands.
Boat-wise, the catamaran is the way to travel! Kyle is a fun captain and he and Nicola always go the extra mile to get you to the best snorkeling locations (in some places you would never even know about, hello Lovongo!) diving locations, or just hanging out drinking mimosas on the magic carpet. Sometimes we get a little crazy and go wakeboarding off the dingy, or do the dingy-slingy that launches you 30+ feet into the air (you will have to ask them about that one). Also, trips to Soggy Dollar and Foxy´s are always in order and always the best time.
Island-wise, they will make you feel like a local, too. I´ve found out about some amazing hiking trails and island restaurants and bars that I would never have known about if it wasn´t for them. There´s so much to do I feel like no matter how many times I visit, our girls trip always sails us in another direction with new and exciting adventures and I cannot recommend them enough!
Changed My View of Vacations!
Captain Kyle and Nicola changed my whole view on vacations!! Prior to our vacation with Captain Kyle I would have always chosen a mountain vacation, but only because I never knew how fun boat life is. Kyle knows all the secret and not so secret spots so you get a super well rounded vacation of both fun parties at the Soggy Dollar and snorkeling around islands with no one else in site. Speaking of water sports this boat has it all!!! As someone who is not comfortable in water not only did I feel safe the whole time but I also got over my fear enough to try wakeboarding and the dingy sling! Both activities are a defiant must if you want the true boat life experience. I cannot imagine going on a boat with anyone other than Captain Kyle and Nicola.
You Bet I Plan To Be Back!
I highly recommend vacationing with Kyle and Nicola! They are the absolute best and taught me so much about boating in the islands. The first night we were there, Kyle made the best shots, we learned how to tie knots and enjoyed the wonders of living on our own private yacht. The next morning Nicola took us out into the water for some snorkeling adventures and as someone who doesn´t love to swim, she always had an eye on everyone and made me feel super safe. You bet I plan to go back!
