Captain: Kahle Wightman
Kahle has spent the past few years climbing the ranks in the yacht world on large charter yachts. In that time, she has gained experience sailing the east coast into the Great Lakes, the west coast through the Panama Canal up to Alaska, and everywhere else from the Bahamas to St. Kitts.
With her USCG Masters license, ASA 104-114 certifications, and high-profile charter experience, she is ready and eager to give you the five-star vacation of a lifetime!
Kahle is also a certified PADI Divemaster, logging over 300 dives. Her real passion for the water all started with scuba diving in the chilly, rougher waters off of California...so by the time she made it to the Caribbean she was in heaven! Any opportunity to dive with guests in the warm, beautiful waters of the USVI’s is always welcomed. It was also in California that she inherited her love for sailing from her father and decided to make a career switch from motor yachts.
First Mate/Chef: Cook Carpenter
Growing up with a name like “Cook”, it was only fitting that he took to cooking right off the bat. After spending his whole life in the “foodie” city of New Orleans while simultaneously being raised in a vegetarian household, almost any type of cuisine is in his wheelhouse. From the naughtiest of Southern cooking to refreshing, vegan dishes, Cook has you covered.
Nevertheless, his real culinary specialty is seafood. He has spent his whole life fishing (including in-shore, off-shore, and fly fishing). He has done so professionally and recreationally in all waters surrounding the United States and the Caribbean. After spending the past year trolling off a 60 meter motor yacht and fishing from their various tenders, he has nearly perfected his craft. If he can catch it, he can cook it!
Commonly known as a “jack of all trades”, Cook is also a skilled sailor. Beginning in the Gulf Coast as a youngster, he has gained experience on a variety of monohulls throughout the years. He also comes equipped with his USCG Masters License and ASA 101-114 certifications.
When he isn’t searing a mouth-watering tuna dish or filet-ing the catch of the day, he can be found exploring the islands in search of the best local spots. If there’s a good time, Cook will find it!
