Captain Travis discovered his love of the water growing up on the Great Lakes of Michigan. Sailing, fishing, and water skiing were is childhood passions. When those same lakes froze in the wintertime, he played Ice Hockey. To branch out from his Midwestern roots, Travis enlisted with the United States Navy. While serving for Uncle Sam he soon discovered the underwater world of SCUBA diving. After his service in the Navy, Travis went on to study at the University of Connecticut and Bartend his way through school. His personality as well as his attention to detail helped him excel in the realm of hospitality management. After a number of years in the New England chill he decided to investigate the Virgin Islands. That was over fourteen years ago. While living in the sunny Caribbean he has been a bartender, sailing/windsurfing instructor, and a SCUBA instructor/dive boat captain. For twelve years he has worked for award winning dive shops such as Chris Sawyer and Redhook Dive Centers. Travis absolutely loves his work as a captain because it incorporates all he has learned by allowing him to sail, dive, make cocktails, experiment in the galley, and most of all...entertain his guests.
Missy's love for the Caribbean began over twenty years ago when she left the hustle and bustle of New York with a one-way ticket to the U.S. Virgin Islands. At night she worked in many of St. John's finest restaurants expanding her knowledge of food and wine earning herself a wine sommelier certification. Growing up she had the privilege of working with Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa. Thanks to her, Missy became passionate about cooking and sharing recipes and photos with her sisters.
Missy's love for the water started when she lead charter boat excursions which included hiking, snorkeling and kayak tours. However, first time Missy tried scuba diving, she fell in love with the sport and it became her obsession. With over eight thousand dives,Missy is now one of the highest rated scuba instructors in the Virgin Islands. She loves taking people snorkeling and diving, and educating them on the incredible marine life of the Caribbean.Missy's extensive knowledge and love of the Caribbean waters along with her devotion to superior hospitality create a dynamic and truly memorable visit.
