Crew Profiles:
Captain Mark and First Mate/Chef Rachel look forward to welcoming guests aboard for a fun-filled week of diving, fishing, snorkeling, gourmet dining and relaxing in the most beautiful place on earth: the US and British Virgin Islands.

Captain Mark: From a young age, Mark grew up fishing and diving off the wild coast of South Africa with his dad and older brother. Their daily task was to catch crayfish and fish for the dinner table. As a result of these early interactions with the ocean, Mark’s passion for fishing, free diving and spearfishing developed, and he went on to compete in these sports when he got older.

After graduating from school, Mark was awarded a bursary by a sailing academy to obtain his 200 ton Captain’s License and took to the seas delivering a 53ft catamaran to Madagascar as skipper at the age of 19. Matt has continued to skipper yachts around the world from Mozambique, Madagascar, and the Seychelles to the Caribbean.

Mark has a passion for good books, great people, travel, family, and of course anything to do with the water.
