Sea Dragon Crew Profile
MEET THE CREW
Captain: Mickey Allison
Chef/First Mate: Alix Cayce
Meet Alix and Mickey, a cheerful, hardworking team who promise a week full of laughs, adventure, and relaxation. As the son of a professional ocean racer, Mickey was practically born at the helm and he’s been sailing ever since, spending his youth cruising around the Pacific Northwest with his family then beginning working on sailboats professionally at just 15. He became a professional skipper in Seattle by 22, and has continued to captain boats around the world ever since.
Alix was also raised on boats with her family in the Pacific Northwest and has always felt just as at home on the water as on dry land. She’s been cooking all her life, but specifically on yachts for the last three years. She has also earned her Level 2 Culinary Certificate with Ashburton Chef’s Academy in the UK which she completed with highest marks.
Though they both lived not more than 5 minutes apart in Seattle their whole lives, it wasn’t until a sailing trip in Greece three years ago that they finally met. Alix was a guest on one charter, and Mickey the captain on another. Three years later, they’re a dedicated captain and chef couple here in the beautiful Virgin Islands who are passionate about sailing, food, and always finding the next adventure.
Both Mickey and Alix love the outdoors and spend their time off the water in the mountains snowboarding, backpacking, and hiking around the world. On the water, though, Mickey is an avid scuba and free diver and as a certified Dive Master he loves to take guests exploring below the surface. For the more experienced divers, he looks forward to showing you wrecks and reefs throughout the islands and for the less experienced looking to learn, he is always happy to show off the best snorkeling the islands have to offer or even to set up scuba lessons with local instructors.
You can count on them to have the hot spots in the islands dialed in. The islands are rich with hidden hideouts and floating bars, and this pair knows them all. Don’t let their age fool you though, Mickey and Alix are passionate about what they do and they are dedicated to providing an amazing vacation no matter what you’re looking for. Whether you want a week filled with adventure, a relaxing retreat for you and your family, or a romantic time on the water for you and your partner, Alix and Mickey will make sure that you wake up to the smell of fresh baked bread, that your meals are beautiful, fresh and local, and that your week is quite literally smooth sailing.
SUBSTITUTE CREW - JANUARY 5TH - FEBRUARY 20,2020
Meet David and Elise, a positive, hard working, and passionate pair who are thrilled to share the wonders and secrets of the Virgin
Islands with others, where they have worked for 7 summers. Together they seek to give others a week of merriment, ease,
David met Elise while working in the BVI summer of 2017, but the journey that brought them together started when he was just 8
years old, learning to sail small boats in California. David has been fortunate enough to dive and participate in a multitude of
watersports around Europe, Central America, South Asia and the Middle East. After sailing from the BVIs to Tahiti, he obtained a
professional license and began working as a captain in the Adriatic at the age of 20. David’s dream of spending his life on the ocean
came to fruition when he met Elise, a sailor and creator like himself.
When Elise turned 11, her birthday present from her Grandmother was a culinary knife, a cutting board, and a promise of cooking
lessons. Soon after her cooking lessons began, Elise began taking charge in the kitchen, joyfully planning and preparing ambitious
three course meals for her entire family.
In between the cooking lessons with her Grandmother, Elise spent her childhood summers sailing small boats in Clearwater,
Florida. Soon after graduating high school, Elise was introduced to the adventure and freedom that larger vessels provided and
immediately fell in love with living on the water. For the past three years, she has worked onboard sailboats anytime she isn’t
pursuing her degree in Anthropology at Bowdoin College.
In addition to exploring the oceans together, Elise and David love being each other’s dive buddies, skiing & backpacking partners,
and copilots on cross country road trips. They also love creating together, from whimsical dishes to handmade clothing and baskets.
Their time and experiences in the Virgin Islands has allowed them to find secluded beaches, enthralling bars, and the friendliest
locals. After a week with this joyful couple, they believe you will feel refreshed, invigorated and in tune with the waves of the ocean.

Sea Dragon Guest Reviews
We will never forget this vacation!
This idea of a vacation was fun to think about for the past few years. You have taken this fun thought and turned it into a vacation of a lifetime. We´re truly thankful to have had this experience with you. Thank you for the gourmet meals, the history lessons, new games, and shark fishing. We will ever forget this vacation, or the new friends we´ve made on this journey
Was the Best Vacation Ever!
Where to even begin. I´m sitting in cold, misty Washington, wishing I were back on the Sea Dragon now. I would like to write you a novel and want to get it right, but also don´t want to put off a review while I craft a perfect product. So here goes...
This was the best vacation ever. Met and exceeded any expectations I could have imagined. I love this group of 50 year olds -there could not have been a better way for us to celebrate our half-century birthdays!
Alix and Mickey were thoughtful, professional, warm and welcoming from before we ever showed up. They thought of every detail to make our trip luxurious and worry free. They adjusted our daily schedule to fit all of our goals in - we relaxed and still saw so much of the ´must see´ locations. They went above and beyond day and night, willing to get up in the middle of the night if we had a question or concern, keeping the boat spotless and inviting throughout the day.
The FOOD. I miss Alix. Her cooking was decadent and ´clean,´ (healthy) leaving us so satisfied. She makes all of her own baked goods, a magical feat in a galley kitchen. Homemade English Muffins for Eggs Benedict?! Fresh fruit daily! Inventive and delicious salads perfectly matched to every meal. Even a gourmet picnic lunch on Anegada. She clearly has a passion for cooking and sharing her work with her guests.
Mickey - his experience and confidence set the tone for relaxation. We knew we were in good hands from the opening brief. He knew just where to find the perfect mooring, and just how mix sailing and motoring for a calm but exciting trip. His choice of destinations filled our goals. It is hard to say what was the best destination. The baths were a must. Anegada - so happy we made it all the way to Cow Wreck beach. Will definitely want to revisit that spot someday. Snorkeling daily in what felt like our own personal aquariums. I loved the Stand Up Paddle Boards for a peaceful morning paddle after coffee.
Oh - the SeaDragon. (and Sampson the Mascot! :) Loved this layout. Loved the space on top for hanging out while underway and also while moored under the stars. It was nice to have such great space to congregate as well as have separate quiet time. The rooms were very nice, easy access to the beds and heads. Clean and well maintained, with nice amenities. Again, the crew made this boat exceptional. Every night Sampson greeted us with a new Yoga Pose and a piece of chocolate. (I miss Alix and Mickey!) :)
An Amazing Couple!
The Virgin Islands are a very special place and to experience them on the water makes them even more special. To experience them onboard a catamaran makes them just that much more special. This time around, our week was guided by Captain Mickey with support in the galley and everywhere else by Mate Alix. These two are an amazing couple. They are personable, bright, confident, and passionate about sailing. They were a joy to spend a week with. When you go on a sailboat it would seem appropriate to do some sailing and that we did, every day. The ride is smoother, quieter, and definitely more fun than motoring. We ate great meals created by Alix. Best Key Lime pie ever. We read a lot. We snorkeled. We saw great sunsets. We had great conversations. We had a blast touring Anegada on motorbikes. Make sure you go to Anegada. It is a really fun, laid back island and we had an amazing sail when we left there. We look forward to sailing again.
Highly Recommend this Fantastic Duo!
We took a week long, 1/2 -inclusive sail in June 2018 w/ 2 couples & 3 kids ages 12,10, & 8. I have done this trip before (stayed 1 week in Jost in a villa & another chartered sail adults only) & all I can say is sailing is the way to go & the crew can definitely make or break a trip...we were so impressed w/ Alix & Mickey & cannot say enough about their professionalism, hospitality, knowledge of the islands, & most important... their kindness & patience w/ our kids. The meals Alix cooked were so tasteful, fresh, & our kids even ate things they normally wouldn’t at home! The boat had plentiful water sport items available including adult snorkels, kayak, large floating mat, & paddle boards. Each morning we would wake up & find the kids sitting by Cpt Mickey learning about sailing & we would stop along the way for different water sport things they wanted to do. They also took us to great restaurants, & other island spots they knew we would love. We HIGHLY recommend this crew & will go back w/ out hesitation!
Clearly Love Their Job
Alix and Mickey were knowledgeable and creative during a very challenging time as the islands were starting the rebuilding process. Mickey brought his vast experience at sea and boat maintenance skills to our vessel which had experienced some storm damage. We cannot recommend them highly enough and would be happy to speak to anyone considering hiring them as crew. They have experience of both the Virgin Islands and Mediterranean and clearly love their jobs. We have already started planning our next sailing adventure and would not consider sailing with anybody else.
Floored By The Quality
We spent a week in May in the US and BVI with crew Mickey Allison and Alix Cayce for our honeymoon. While we anticipated a host of novel experiences and natural beauty, we were floored by the quality and excitement. Each day brought excellent food by Alix that was perfectly tailored to our interests, well organized adventures, and spectacular, romantic evenings. The flow of the days felt natural and adjusted to our sleeping schedule and energy. With regards to activities, we snorkeled, scuba dived, hiked, and enjoyed several beaches. Mickey was an excellent guide for our scuba dives - three in total -, and we saw super cool marine life including three sharks - bull, reef, and nurse -, sea turtles, puffer fish, rays, etc. It was my first time diving in the ocean and it felt safe and well-led. An unexpected surprise was the pleasure of conversation and time spent with the crew, who were inquisitive, fun, easy-going, and well read in a wide number of topics - seriously amazing people that we feel incredibly blessed to have met. We loved every aspect of the trip, from the crew to the nature, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to experience life at sea.
Top Notch Trip From Start To Finish!
We just spent a week aboard with Captain Mickey and 1st mate Alix and had a magnificent vacation!!! They did a great job planning out the places they thought we´d like to see, and they were absolutely correct about every single one. Mickey´s knowledge about the history and facts of the islands were second to none. Alix´s meals were all superb, fresh and just perfect every time. And desserts.....OMG they were great!!! This was a top notch trip from start to finish. Communication was great, they kept us up to date with any changes that may come and were open to our input on what islands to see or skip. Our group was 4 women, 50´ish and accommodations were great....right down to the fantastic smelling body wash´s that we all had to run out to get when we got home to remind us of our trip!!! The boat was in great shape and clean.
Do not hesitate to book. Request Mickey and Alix, you won´t be sorry. We will see you all again in 2020!!!!
Great Choice of Crew!
Not only was the food/crew amazing, but they took the time to get to know us as well. By the end of the trip, we began to feel like we were family. It was awesome to hear about their worldly travels, either when on the boat or during their off time. They are just an amazing couple to get to know and spend time with. I´m so fortunate I was able to get to know them a bit. I hope that I am able to someday travel with them again, but if not, this was certainly a trip of a lifetime.
Book this boat, with this crew - and you will not regret it. Enjoy yourself!
The crew: If you are lucky enough to book this fabulous boat, you MUST request to go with Mickey (Captain) and Alix (1st Mate/Chef Extrordinaire). As much as I liked the boat, I would follow Mickey and Alix on any boat they were on. These 2 are as delightful as the day is long! I was so impressed with their knowledge.....about the boat; our surroundings; cooking; travel in general and just any other worldly topics. Mickey had the patience of a saint to answer our every ´Mickey, what is this? question´. They took the time to get to know us and what our likes/dislikes were - both in the area of our upcoming week of travel as well as food choices, etc. Mickey offered up great suggestions for things to do, which were in line with what we wanted to see, etc. Alix made the most amazing food in her little kitchen accommodations. Every day we would be tantalized from the scents coming from the kitchen, which would only lead to the excitement of eating our next meal. There was not one meal that anyone was disappointed by. There was always plenty of food, and when there were leftovers - we would feed Mickey some more! ha.
I may need to pull out a thesaurus to find out how many different ways I can say - Spectacular/Amazing/Fantastic/Unbelievable. I could go on and on about what an amazing trip we just had.
We were a group of 4 ladies who were on board with the crew of Mickey and Alix. I think I can safely speak for all when I say that it was a fantastic and amazing trip.
