With over 20 combined years in the service and hospitality industry, Ben and Michelle know what it takes to create the perfect charter for their guests. Chef Michelle, Florida born and raised discovered her love for the water at a very young age. She grew up on the east coast spending time on the ocean with her father who was an avid boater and learning to cook with her Italian mother. Her passion for diving however, did not begin until she met Ben. Shortly after their first date he strapped a tank to her back and taught her everything she knows about life under the surface. The two are also accomplished freedivers and would love to share the wonders of breath hold diving with you.
Ben's love of the ocean grew after he left the Army and started scuba diving and sailing regularly while studying marine biology at UVA. He later moved to Florida to be closer to the water and earn his masters degree at the University of Miami. During Ben's time in Florida he earned his USCG Masters 100GT captains credentials. This is also where he met Michelle and the two have been inseparable since day one. They decided a life on the water in the Caribbean would suit them perfectly and began to work towards the big move. The two initially took jobs cruising and diving in the BVI. Daily snorkel and scuba trips were rewarding but they knew they wanted to get to sail more regularly while sharing their culinary creations with people and More Amore was the perfect fit.
With years of experience diving and touring the Virgin Islands Ben and Michelle are looking forward to sharing the regions hidden gems with you as well as their knowledge of the wonders you will encounter here.
