Hazel was born in Medellin Colombia and shortly after his family moved to the coastal Caribbean town of Capurgana, where his love for the ocean and the environment was curated. He spent his days freediving, spearfishing and spending time with the local fishermen.

He was homeschooled by his mother, and after studied statistics at the University. After two years at the University his economical conditions changed and he had to return to his coastal town. This was the point at which he started perusing his maritime career. From this moment he knew he was going to leave Colombia and travel the world.

He started working with local tourism, taking guests on day charters. He did this for three years, saving every penny to be able to apply for his passport and prepare for leaving the country.

He soon found a couple of cruisers who were sailing from his town across to Panama. With no concrete plan he jumped onboard and went to Panama looking for his next opportunity.

In Panama he found his first job, initially helping in the yard. Later moving on to the role of deckhand and chef. During this time he was able to get his 200T Yacht Captain license in Panama.

Covid hit and the industry abruptly closed, forcing Hazel to seek another opportunity. This was when he started working for Sea Shepard conservation society. During his three years there he participated in many campaigns protecting marine life and doing scientific research around the west coast of Mexico. As well as multiple yard periods, strengthening his maintenance skills.

After almost three years at Sea Shepard Hazel decided he needed a change of scenery and travelled to the Caribbean to pursue his career in Chartering. He has spent the last two seasons in the Caribbean as a Captain building experience and fine-tuning his charter skills.

During this time Hazel & Yah Yah met working for the same charter company and bonded over the fact that they are both very thorough and hard workers. Their relationship blossomed and they soon started working on the same vessel. During their first vacation together they travelled to 12 countries in order to complete their Yacht Master Offshore and Dive masters together.

Yah Yah was born and raised on a self sustaining farm in the beautiful region of Cape Town, South Africa. She practically grew up in the kitchen with her nanny by her side giving the much needed supervision.

From making cheeses to processing meat, from pickles to preserves there is nothing that Yah Yah can’t make from scratch. Selling baked goods from the age of 6 at the local farmers market, cooking has been apart of her life since the very start.

Her love for the ocean was certainly sparked by the fact that their family farm bordered the coast. She was able to harvest fresh seafood directly from their property and spend her days on the beach cooking her harvest on the fire.

Kris and Aneta,
We just wanted to tell you both Thank you for taking such excellent care of our family this week! We all accomplished getting Ellen in the water for 6 dives! The captains cocktail hour was fantastic-especially the Manhattans! All your suggestions were spot on. The Baths on Virgin Gorda were particularly a treat. Wreck of the Rhone and seeing Gillian with the baby turtle at Soggy Dollar and the shart at Whistling Cay were my highlights! Best of luck with your next adventures!

Kris & Aneta ,
Thank you so much for an amazing trip in the BVI’s. We have visited and seen many fantastic spots around the several islands in the BVI and they were just as spectacular as we hoped. Sailing in the BVI really lives up to the hype.

You guys are the friendliest people and crew and we have really enjoyed spending this week with you. The food on the boat has been outstanding. We are amazed by the meals you guys have prepared in that small kitchen - and all homemade!!! So good!

Thank you again for an amazing adventure and one that we will never forget. Good luck with everything, you guys deserve the best.
Love from Norway - Linda, Kristine, Steiner, Stian & Filip

February 2024 BVI Charter

Dear Aneta & Kris,
Thank you both for an amazing experience in the BVI’s! We were celebrating my husband´s retirement and my youngest son’s 25th Birthday and could not have picked a better location and boat! We visited so many beautiful islands and had many happy hours at the many island bars. The food on the boat was amazing, we had restaurant quality (even better!) for breakfast, lunch & dinner! We were amazed how they cooked all the homemade food on the boat! We will never forget our adventure and plan on returning.
It was the Vacation of a lifetime! Love to you both and we hope to see you in the future.

We had incredible stay on ScubaDoo and enjoyed a sinful week of absolute relaxation. If you are a fan of incredible food, non-stop drinks, wonderful music, constant snorkeling in the azure waters of the Caribbean, and wonderful hosts, then Scuba-Doo is your thing. Anetta and Kris were absolutely wonderful taking care of our food requests without missing a beat. The boat is special with everything you will ever want on a floating boutique hotel.
Looking forward to coming back soon.

I just wanted to let you guys know you made our holiday truly amazing. From the moment we boarded Scuba Doo we felt very at home aboard. Karen loved her introduction to scuba diving, she felt safe and enjoyed seeing a whole new world. The boat was spectacular, everyone loved it. The only complaint we both had is 9 days is definitely not enough time. Your hospitality was second to none.

Thanks for the best sail ever we hope to be back on board Scuba Doo soon.

November 2023 BVI Charter

Thank you for an incredible experience aboard the Scuba Doo Yacht Charter! From the moment we set sail, Kris & Aneta’s warmth and hospitality created a welcoming atmosphere that made our USVI trip unforgettable.

They went above and beyond in all aspects of the trip, from recommending the best snorkelling & dive spots to finding the perfect mooring ball in the cove for us to spend the night. The attention to detail and care they put into everything they do was greatly appreciated!

Aneta prepared delicious and beautifully plated meals & desserts for us each day - accompanied by the ocean breeze, you can’t beat it! Also, a must do on Scuba Doo was setting up the floating dock to enjoy the sunsets while sipping on some of Kris´s signature Painkiller cocktails!

And finally, I had the opportunity to complete my Open Water Dive certification course with Kris. He was an amazing instructor, ensuring I felt safe and showed us some of USVI’s best dive sites. We saw a ship wreck, lots of fish, turtles, stingrays, and a nurse shark!

Thank you both again for an amazing trip!
- Nick

We have just returned from a tremendously memorable trip to USVI with Scuba Doo! Kris and Aneta were the most welcoming crew and they had pampered us with delicious food, drinks, and activities. We had always woken up to the fragrant smell of breakfast. You could expect freshly baked waffles or cinnamon buns on the table waiting for you. Kris took us around different parts of the islands and we had the opportunity to see all sorts of sea life as well as landscapes. As a Jack of all trades, he could be a Captain, a chef, and a fisherman. He caught a black fin tuna on our trip and fed us the best grilled tuna steak for dinner. He also made sure we had a worry-free trip as he worked tirelessly around the boat to ensure all parts of the boat are well maintained. There was not a part of the trip I did not thoroughly enjoy and call it once in a lifetime experience. A hundred percent recommend Scuba Doo for your next family vacation!


November 2023 BVI Charter

It´s been a week since our BVI catamaran vacation aboard the Scuba Doo. The vacation high is over, and I finally have time to relay our thoughts. As soon as we three couples boarded Scuba Doo, we knew it was going to be an epic week. Several of us had previously been on a catamaran in the BVI two other times through other companies. We knew what to expect, and what we preferred to do...or so we thought.
Kris and Aneta - WOW - you two were beyond amazing! Your attention to detail, sharing of stories and finding new places for us to explore exceeded our expectations. We had just enough activities and relaxation times to please the entire group. Snorkeling and floating at the Caves and Indians and also at two coves new to us was perfect. The two divers of the group were able to get their fill of diving without interfering with the rest of the group plans. ´Bubbles Up!´ Kris was also patient and attentive when one of us went on a discovery dive for the first time. Aneta and Kris also know their way around the kitchen! We did not go hungry and thoroughly enjoyed all the meals, and treats in the ´Dome of Yum´. Our highlights are The Baths, Conch Island Tour in Anegada and Saba Rock. Kris and Aneta were troopers for our White Party wine tasting dinner and Scuby Doo night. Oh the laughs!
Thank you for a truly magical week!


What an amazing week!! Words cannot express how perfect this trip was. Kris and Aneta, you are rockstars! Thank you! - Mike

Kris & Aneta, Thank you for a wonderful week! We made some great memories with you; Scuba diving, the Baths, conch island, Scooby Doo party, all the delicious food (especially the crab cakes and all the desserts!) and the time you took for our conversations. We wish you much success and safety on this third season. Please know we have enjoyed all of your attention to detail. You two are AWESOME! Go Chiefs! - Jeff & Sheryl

Kris & Aneta - you two are amazing both inside and out. Your children will be hearing of your adventures and the guests who´s lives you made happy beyond words! You two have perfected your trade! We love you, Bike & Lisa
Ps. Best desserts ever xx

April 2023 BVI Charter

Kris & Aneta,

You are the friendliest, most capable crew in the Caribbean ☺️ The food was amazing - not only the crazy amazing flavor - but how do you do that in that tiny kitchen?! Cocktail hour was always spot on. No one can agree on what was best, mojitos, Manhattans, passion fruit margaritas or bushwhackers.

How good was the 50th birthday celebration? Perfect! It is now the birthday by which all other birthdays will be measured. Where else can you get a champagne toast and a light up squid hat? Only on Scuba Doo.

Diving from the boat every day was a huge highlight. You found dive sites that were a great fit for our group and made it work with all the best island side trips. Your activity recommendations were on point!!! From hikes to dives to cocktails!

Thank you so much,

Aneta & Kris,
Thank you for a beautiful and memorable adventure! This was a once in a lifetime experience that we will remember forever. We are so thankful for the amount of thought places into the location and activities every single day. The hard work and amazing food could never be better. Speaking on Grace & Liam’s behalf, this trip gave them an insight on what hard work and kindness look like. Grace has always wanted to sail, but now more than ever she really wants to! Both of you have made us feel at home even in close quarters. Thank you again for an amazing week and fantastic Easter!
Fondly, Chris, Bridget, Grace & Liam

Aneta & Kris,

Words cannot express our gratitude for all you have done for us. Being our first time on an adventure such as this, we were not sure what to expect. The two of you made this trip truly extraordinary. As a family, we have been fortunate to have traveled to many places. This trip has certainly tanked at the top. You went above and beyond to ensure we got the most of our short time onboard. The experiences you provided; the unbelievable meals (and gluten free!), the sailing, the snorkeling & diving, the wake-boarding, all of it was truly the most memorable. We all so appreciate all your hard work. I am sure as Grace and Liam look back at their childhood, this trip will surely be a high point, if not the highest. With that Bridget & I are so thankful. We all wish both of you all the best in your future.

Sincerely & with tremendous gratitude,
Chris & Bridget

Kris & Aneta,
Another day in paradise! This was an incredible week and time went by way too quickly. I easily got used to the morning swim, endless snorkeling, and the most amazing food. The diving was rich with beautiful coral, fish, lobsters, turtles, and rays. We loved the peaceful sailing, made even more fantastic by the playful dolphin that visited us. The captains’ cocktails were a treat – from painkillers to espresso martinis.
You are both amazing at what you do! You were informative before the trip and your guidance during the trip made everyday filled with fun. Your energy and positivity is a joy to be around! We will miss your home in paradise and are left wanting more! Kiki’s 5th Pirate Birthday Party was the cutest!
This trip was absolutely amazing!
Thank you!

Love, The Prevost Family

Best Family Trip – I cannot say enough about our excellent experience with Michelle Heyns of Epic Yacht Charters and our crew on the Scuba Doo, Perhaps the best all-around family trip we’ve taken! Booking the charter with Michelle was easy and seamless. She is knowlegable, available and held our hands through every step of the process. Highly recommend! Our family of five (my wife and I and three daughters, ages 15, 12, and 8) chartered Scuba Doo, a 50-foot catamaran, for a week in early March for our spring break. It was PERFECT. The captain Kris and the first mate/chef Aneta were all we could have hoped for. Kris is a top-notch captain and had everything under control on the boat at all times. He’s a skilled sailor and walked us through the plan for each day. He was very helpful with our daughters and skillfully guided them on/off the dinghy when we went ashore. Kris also made some great “captain cocktail” specials for happy hour for the whole family. Really was the ideal captain. Aneta is so thoughtful and somehow turns out gourmet fine-dining quality meals from that tiny little kitchen. Three wonderful meals each day, with great variety. Honestly, the meals were so good there was no reason to have lunch or dinner ashore. My wife and I are sort of “foodies” and we were highly impressed throughout the week. We did a mix of USVI and BVI, which was perfect. Something to do each day – or nothing to do if you prefer! Island adventures, snorkeling, beach days or just cruising. Overall, our week on Scuba Doo with Kris and Aneta was probably the best family trip we’ve had. We very much hope we’ll be able to book with them again!

We can’t thank you enough for such an amazing week aboard. From the briefing (three squares) to the beautiful islands you took us to, the diving, the sailing, the hiking (Patty will always remember the hike! Lol) And of course the fantastic meals, but most of all we will always remember your incredible hospitality! You made us feel like guests in your home not like customers. We will remember this trip forever.
Thank you so much,

Jan 2023 BVI Charter

I booked Scuba Doo with Captain Kris and Chef Aneta for my girlfriend and me to get some scuba diving in and to show my girlfriendthe BVI. Kris and Chef were amazing and by the time the trip was over, I believe that I can count them as friends. The food Aneta made was delicious and Kris was a great dive master/instructor as well as a superb bartender. Kris and Aneta even went above and beyond to fulfill a special beach bonfire evening that I requested. You and I both know that the success of a charter is greatly dependent upon the crew of the charter, and I can say this trip was extremely successful!!
Everyone has written about Aneta’s meals and Kris’s Activities and while all that applies, the richness of spending 7 nights 8 days with them was priceless and beyond delightful! It was our pleasure to get to know you both more than just “crew.” You two are rich beyond your understanding and my prayer is that you cultivate that so you can continue to spread your joy with others!
Love you guys!

NYE 2022 BVI Charter

Aneta & Kris,
Thank you for the most fantastic week! It was the perfect way to kidnap my family and create once in a lifetime memories. The meals were delicious. I am amazed by the food Aneta poofs out of the small corner kitchen – small but mighty! The activities while onboard were pletiful, some lazy & some active – the perfect balance for us. On that note, thank you for resurrecting my scuba career! 25 years dormant!! I will cherish the map and recall each amazing detail when I look at it. This trip has been a dream of mine for years – the reality was even better than I dreamed.
Special thanks to the patience with late rising teenagers, accommodating picky eaters, being Cowboy fans!! and being able to stream the game! Setting up a special birthday celebration and of course for finding fireworks on New Year´s Eve.
Thank you!

First off lets talk about how amazing the food was!! Aneta, you never failed to amaze us with every single meal! Right when we got here everyone fell in love with the charcuterie wraps to the awesome sous vide turkey dinner! Wishing you and your amazing cooking skills could come home with us.
Thank you for all the awesome adventures we got to experience. Some of our favorites were the baths and snorkeling around Waterlemon! Soggy Dollar and Willy T’s is a definite YES!
Thank you for making this such an awesome trip and fun experience. This is definitely one for the books! Y’all are fantastic!

Dec 2022 BVI Charter

Captain Kris and Anetta were fantastic on all aspects. The boat was amazing - super-comfortable and we’ll-equipped. I loved the layout of the salon, with the u-shaped sofa and middle console. We had all meals out on the deck - never really used the salon but I liked the open floor plan that made it seem more spacious. All of our rooms were comfortable with good mattresses and nice, efficient bathrooms.

The food was delicious - and it wasn’t easy with our dietary preferences and restrictions. All meals were delicious and well-presented. Anetta did a great job making Maddie’s meals replicate ours but vegan. And she even baked a chocolate birthday cake for Lauren (along with presenting her with an bottle of champagne and a map of the BVI with our journey charted on it). So thoughtful. Kris and Anetta joined us for dinner at Saba Rock one evening and it was much fun.

We snorkeled a ton - saw some sea turtles, sting rays, lots of amazing fish, including a few barracuda, awesome coral. Kris helped a fisherman rescue an Eagle ray from his net that Jay and Maddie found while kayaking - a happy ending to a potential for a bad outcome.

We hit great beaches and some of our top must-sees - Norman Island, Willy T’s (where Jay became somewhat famous for doing about 8 backflips from the top deck - people we saw at other islands said “Hey, you’re the backflip dude!”) the Baths, Cooper Island, the bubbly pools, the North Sound, and Caneel Bay.

It was an amazing week and something we will all remember for a very long time. Thank you for everything you did to make it happen and make it amazing.

Dec 2022 BVI Charter

Kris & Aneta,

We had an amazing charter with you through the BVI! This trip was our familys first trip together in 7 years! We really enjoyed the entire trip but daily highlights include: St. John – snorkeling with the turtles! Jay becoming famous at Willy T’s for his backflips, (#backflipboy #willytsbackflipboy). Kris rescuing an eagle ray from the fisherman’s net – good karma for that! Thank you again for orchestrating such a beautiful birthday celebration for Lauren (24!). Aneta is an amazing chef – every meal was a standout! We especially loved the Jerk Caribbean Chicken, Sesame Tuna, and Snapper! Eggs Benedict, Taco Tuesday and the banana pancakes were also a hit.

Thank you so much for the best trip ever!!!

Kris & Aneta,

Each day was an Adventure – a balm for the soul and an exercise in practicing daily gratitude. You guys make an incredible team! Not only were we well taken care of but we were fed like kings. We are forever changed by this trip. It’s a rare thing these days to stop and disconnect from the fast-paced world we live in and spend real quality time with friends and family. We are glad you were part of this. We will go home a little braver, a little wiser and a lot more grateful!

Here’s to the next adventure!
The Koehler’s

Kris & Aneta,

After nearly 30 years of putting world and other people first I cannot express what a privilege and joy it was to feel so well taken care of. This whole trip was like a warm blanket (safe & cozy) but a heck of a lot more fun! The sea is most definitely our “happy place” and your hard work and attention to detail really supercharged that experience. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving out family and experience we will forever remember and be grateful for.

Unforgettable 40th Birthday. Not since the water birth of my kids have I had such joy. Not even a spider man marathon could top this.

We hope your adventure continues with all “YES’s” and few “no’s” and may your darts always find the bullseye.

Thank you so much for a phenomenal week!
We had an amazing time. Seriously the best cooking I have ever had. Before this trip I would not have said I was a bona fide ocean explorer, but Charlie´s snorkeling passion was infectious, and now I would call myself a snorkeling super fan. You guys are the best! Wishing you the best in your adventures and eventual dog ownership.

Cammi and Charlie,

First of all, ´Thank you´ will never be able to describe how grateful our entire group is for this pas week. With that being said... THANK YOU!!

Your work ethic and desire to make everything perfect is incredible. Every meal was incredible-delicious, beautiful, filling, awesome! The running joke is that we were never hungry on this trip. We probably ate less this week than we normally do and that was because every meal was perfect. You were also patient, flexible, and understanding with us.
Thank you!!

You are the man! You taught us more about boats, sailing, snorkeling, diving, and reef/sea creatures than we could ever learn in a lifetime. We also asked more questions than we could in a lifetime and you answered every one. I´m still not sure when you were bullshitting us... so I´m going to go with the fact that you just know way to much. thank you for putting up with our shenanigans.
Thank you!!

April 2022 USVI Charter

Charlie and Cammi,
Thank you both for an amazing week! You are a fantastic team and made the week pass by in a blink. It is incredible how a trip can be so fully relaxing and so action packed. We loved every bit-snorkeling swimming, hiking, lobstering, fishing, playing on the water toys, and of course the sailing. Your shared joy of sailing was a pleasure to watch. And then, of course, was Cammi´s cooking. We loved every single thing you put on the table.
Perhaps best of all was getting to know you guys a little bit. We loved Charlie´s quiet confidence and stoicism. You are a true professional and all around cool guy. And Cammi you have such a warm and engaging personality with the most infectious and joyous laugh. We loved hearing about your unique background and life experience.
Our trip had been delayed 2 years due to covid but alas you made it worth the wait. We are so thankful for an amazing week on the boat with you.
-Brian and Kristin

Charlie and Cammi,
Thank you both for a wonderful trip! IT far exceeded our expectations. The food was incredible... the snorkeling, sailing, and hiking were so much fun.

You made me feel like a younger sister. I had so much time to be you mini chef, and I had so much fun. I loved my hair after you braided it, and going to the beach and learning how to do one handed cartwheels was a big thing on my to do list. I will tell you when I could do it.

You are like a ninja, making beds (or remaking beds as I always tried, but failed miserably for a week to make our bed) while we weren´t looking. Your food was made with love every single day. Thank you for sharing all your talents and your kind and beautiful heart with us.
Charlie, Thank you for being game for pretty much anything at anytime. You are gentle and fearless. You showed us so many things and were always up for the game.
This was a week full of rest, relaxation, and also adventure. I just didn´t know it was possible to put all of that into a single trip. Thank you both for taking care of us with so much love and care. We will share stones of this week with our grandchildren. You firmly imprinted in our memories and we are forever grateful for the experience.
-With love and gratitude

Cammi and Charlie,
You exceeded our expectations the moment we stepped on the boat. Thank you for the greatest vacation I have ever taken! Thank you for listening to our 10,000 questions! Best of luck in all future journeys.

Cammi and Charlie,
When we set out on out island adventure I knew we would be treated to a relaxing sail in a beautiful setting. What I could not have known is that we would be treated to spectacular cuisine, lovingly prepared at each and every breakfast, lunch, and dinner and snack break. I could not have known we would be treated to a captain who would also serve as our patient, creative, and knowledgable guide to the islands who would whisk us to the hidden gems, such as the ideal snorkeling and diving spots, that would make our trip truly special. Spending a week with your senses of humor, attention to detail, adventurous spirit, and steady hands truly took our vacation to a different level. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime and best of luck to you both.

We can´t remember a time in recent years where everything was taken care of for us-hard to do, but very relaxing-just what we needed!
Your food was amazing-especially the sea bass, avocado toast with poached eggs, and those blueberry scones :). If you ever find yourself tired of this beautiful Caribbean weather and scenery, you have a baking job at the Spot on Main!
Charlie thanks for making snorkeling enjoyable and our dinghy rides fun!

New Years 2021 Charter USVI

Charlie and Cammi,
What a fantastic week! Thank you for everything. We sailed around Saint John and a couple of coves on Saint Thomas. We started the week pretty timid about the water and ended with lots of growth. Ava and Ian went snorkeling at every stop seeing a nurse shark, reef shark, sting rays, a squid, and lots of fish. The nights where the underwater lights were allowed lit up large tarpin and smaller fish. Megans Bay and Christmas Cove were our favorites. Megans because of the beautiful yachts and night lights and Christmas Cove for the snorkeling and pizza boat. Charlie´s knowledge of all things sailing and Cammi´s amazing cooking were definite highlights making for a fun, relaxing vacation.
Thank you for everything you both made our family vacay unforgettable!

Captain Charlie and Cammi - What a great week it´s been on Scuba Doo! Thank you for going above and beyond to make this a special week for us, especially the kids. We´ve made so many special memories that will always make me smile. The rocky trip to St Croix, swimming with the turtles, the beach day at Scott´s beach, the tarpon at night, the day at Buck Island - too many fun days to pick a favorite. And the food was a huge hit - you definitely spoiled us. Thanks again for making this family vacation one we will never forget!

Great times!!! Can´t begin to pick my favorite day - they were all so awesome. I´ll always remember the beautiful sights, incredible breeze, taking the helm on the sail back from St Croix, the music, kids laughing gnips, superpowers and great meals to name few. The kids had an experience that will last their lifetime. Hopefully this was the first of many more like it! Thanks for helping us pull off the surprise and great reveal!! Remember to cherish the journey, experiences and memories that come from them!

The Scuba Doo and its crew Captain Charlie and trust mate and excellent chef Cammi, made for a top notch vacation! We circumnavigated St John ~ Hiking, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, reading, snoozing, paddle boarding and drinking and eating while we were spoiled by Cammie and Charlie. Highlights included snorkeling with turtles, swam with a nurse shark, hiking to the sugar mills and to the top of the mountain overlooking Caneel Bay....and the grand finale of a day on the beach at Caneel. Our family and our friends spent much needed quality time together, which is truly the best gift of all. We hope to return again aboard the Scuba Doo! And we will be back to St John, one of our favorite places on earth. THANK YOU Charlie and Cammi!!! Come visit us in Charleston!

Loved all of the activities Cammi and Charlie joined us for. Jungle hill climb, Jurassic park, great dives. Snorkeling was amazing and so much fun to have you two with us to point out all of the highlights. Loved all of the sailing and learning while doing it. Also, thank you for giving extra attention to Evie. 12 year olds can sometimes be left out, but you gave her many fun challenges and I know she felt privileged to have both of you treat her as a friend. Lots of new memories that I know we will all remember well for the rest of our lives. You two make a great crew. Thank you for everything.

All of the food was AMAZING! Especially the pastry dishes. The crew was professional and courteous and always there to help.

I love the big yellow duck :) The shrimp and the salmon were me fave! - but truly all of the food was great. Must see list - the baths and soggy dollar. Thanks for an amazing experience.

Cammie and Charlie were excellent hosts! They never sit down in tending to their guests, I don´t see how they do it. Food was amazing!

Dear Cammi and Charlie,

Thank you so much for everything! This is our third charter and the best. The boat was perfect, the weather was perfect, the food was unbelievable and we loved your choices of locations. Charlie and Cammi - you are a wonderful team we always felt safe, interested, relaxed and happy. After a bad year of operations, illness and pain I feel, finally, fully recovered thanks to both of you. Your thoughtfulness, kindness and help will always be remembered. Thanks also to the owner and charter comply for allowing us to delay the trip for a year. You are both great people and a fantastic crew. Can´t wait for our next trip with you!

Cammi and Charlie,
This was such a wonderful week - you guys are amazing - we explored so many (new) beautiful areas - Cammi made us such delicious meals - you both created such comfortable, clean environment for us to relax and enjoy our surroundings. You are wonderful hosts making me feel safe, very well fed, happy and eager for more. You also are both so knowledgeable about the waters, the sea life and I loved spending time with both of you.
Thank you so much - Vicky
Also - Charlie thank you for your patience and your instruction with us a diver and making us comfortable and success on my two dives.

Vicky says it well! Great planning and improvisation plus wonderful people, plus reading us so well. Thanks for a great trip.

February 2020

All four of us are so so appreciative that the charter company and the boat owner were so flexible about changing the date because of illness. We realize that this was a choice, and we are eternally grateful. We particular loved the diving from the boat, and Charlie is a great dive master and made diving so easy. He also sensitively helped one of us who was recovering from surgery get back in the swim of things, and made sure she was comfortably part of all activities. Cammi is an amazing cook, serving healthy and delicious food at every meal. We need that curried chicken recipe! Cammi and Charlie are the perfect hosts for this kind of trip - expert sailors, so we always felt in good hands, so accommodating to our wishes each day, funny, kind and delightful. We just can’t say enough about what a great trip this was due to Cammi and Charlie. They define excellence in charter service.

December 2019 USVI Charter

This was the perfect vacation. When we booked, we just randomly selected Great Adventure, how lucky were we??? Charlie and Cammi were the best crew we could have asked for!! They treated us like royalty. We felt so lucky each day. Diving with Charlie was exciting, but at the same time so peaceful. He has a calming way about him and we felt safe with him. Each site he took us to was different, but equally beautiful.

The food, well what can I say, Cammi was a great cook. Each meal was beautifully presented and delicious. She also finished them off with a yummy dessert. I´m still wondering how she did it all on our boat. I wish I could let you know which one was better than the other but all the food was wonderful!
Both Cammi and Charlie were so knowledgeable about, our surroundings and environments, sailing, diving, they were so informative.

Cammi and Charlie we really can´t thank you enough. You are so kind and well caring. We will definitely do this again because of your wonderful hospitality. If you move to a bigger boat we will follow! We will have to visit you in Newport! Charlie thanks for entertaining Twin, that´s a job in itself.

Thank you Thank you Thank you. We hate to leave.
