Hailing from Durban, South Africa, Brynn was born into the ocean life. Durban boasts a subtropical climate and one of the longest coastlines in the world. That is where his love affair with the ocean began. As a young man he participated in “ Nippers” which is a lifesaving program hosted at the beach and thus has been trained extensively in life saving techniques.
Brynn is what they call a water baby as he has always had a love of surfing, lifesaving, and water skiing on his boat back home. He also has plenty of cocktail experience as he has worked in some of Cape Towns most popular cocktail bars. He looks forward to serving you one of his famous cocktail creations and hosting your vacation of a lifetime.
What a great time we’ve had! Everything we had on our list to explore was already in Brynn’s plan. We even anchored in places that we were unaware of, making this a true adventure.
Amber was such a creative chef, accommodating all five of us. We always anticipated the next meal to see what unique dish she would prepare.
As a team, Brynn and Amber made us feel very comfortable. They were warm, friendly, engaging, and attentive to our needs. They made our experience beautiful. We can’t imagine a better crew combination. Over the days they became like family. Thank you!
What a week abort Island Kisses with Brynn and Amber! Huge thanks to you both as this was truly a wild and luxurious experience all around. Extra things for the incredible meals aboard, restaurant recommendations, clothes, recommendations, music, understanding, and welcoming/always respectful comradery towards our family. Best tour guides we’ve had and I hope we can Sunday return the favor! We love you, Brynn and Amber, and best of luck to you both!
New Years 2023
This trip exceeded our expectations in every way! Brynn was fun, engaging, and brought us to the perfect spots everyday. Amber was warm, engaging, and her bright smile greeted us every morning. And her meals were treasures every time! This trip could not have been better!
The trip was above and beyond our expectations! Brynn’s trip itinerary was the best for nice scheduled locations. Amber’s meals were amazing and delicious every time! The two of them made this trip the best ever! We hope to do more trips with them. Thanks for everything!
New Years 2023
We can’t imagine a better way to ring in the new year then as a family on Island Kisses with Brynn and Amber. They are a wonderful relaxed team who worked seamlessly together to ensure we had an amazing time. Brynn took us to incredible beaches and made sure that the paddle boards, floaties and snorkels were at every destination. Amber might be the very best chef I have ever experienced, and I have high standards! She paid attention to our food wishes and knocked it out of the park with every meal. We feel very lucky that we chose Island Kisses with Brynn and Amber for the special experience. Thank you!
It was an awesome seven days! Everything from the food to the drinks to the service was great. Both Brynn and Amber were loaded with knowledge of the islands, the bars and restaurants and the sites/attractions. They happily accommodated our late night adventures, foxes, and Willy T‘s. They joked with us and laughed all wall managing to cook, prepare and serve the best food ever as well as navigate us from island to island. Amber accommodated and prepared modified version of some meals, so are picky eating sister would not go hungry. Not only that, but Brynn made some great daiquiris and piña coladas! Simply put, best trip ever! Thank you!!

I had high expectations for the week on Island Kisses and those expectations were exceeded. Most of that is because of the crew- Bryan and Amber! Any week spent on the yacht in the BVIs must be great, but when you add Brynn and Amber it is guaranteed to be one you won't forget.
Amber may as well be a floating Michelin star restaurant- holy smokes can she cook!
Brynn is an expert navigator whom also "does it all" while keeping people laughing with his wit and a smile on his face.
There is zero doubt, I will be taking this trip again and will be requesting both of them.
Headed home to try to replicate Brynn's painkiller cocktail!

So many things were perfect about this week. The boat was well furnished and comfortable. The weather couldn't have been better. And the food! Amber did an amazing job making sure all needs were met. Captain Bryan kept us safe and made the journey smooth. Overall the most enjoyable escape one could imagine. Thanks Island Kisses, Captain Brynn & Chef Amber.

Me along with my son and friends cruised around the BVIs. The trip was the perfect experience. Amber made the most wonderful meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was always a delightful experience. The different foods and combinations were exquisite. We were excited to sit down together for every meal. amber really enjoys her job. She was always happy and ready to help with anything we asked of her. She made the trip even more enjoyable for the entire group. Amber gave 100% everyday! Brynn is the best captain!

Chef Amber creating culinary delights:
Chef Amber loves to be creative with her cooking and ensuring she meets every passenger’s culinary needs. Our meals were always very nutritious, healthy, delicious and beautiful to look at. We took pictures of every meal, they were that good looking. Could not have asked for better. For me I wanted to make sure not to over eat so I asked Amber to adjust my portions. She made sure that I got the right portions for me every time. Amber was fantastic with deserts. I am a chocoholic and have sampled many chocolate brownies, but Amber’s was the best I have ever had. On top of all that she is always smiling and eager to be of service. Can’t wait for our next trip on Island Kisses to sample Amber’s new creations. Peter.
Delicious food. Wonderful variety and flexibility. Positive disposition and again, cool, calm & collected. It made us feel at home for a week. Can level up to adults and level down to children with great ease. We were all happy campers with our chef and she took it from good to great for us.

It is impossible for Amber to make anything less than five stars. Her creations are next level and truly elevate the boating experience. She is extremely considerate of your dietary needs and you will never be hungry. Along with her phenomenal cooking skills is a hilarious personality. Her mannerisms and comedic timing are impeccable. I look forward to the day her cookbook is published!

Dang girl - you can cook! We loved having your creations excite both our eyes and our taste buds. The love you add to every meal or snack is truly amazing and appreciated. The experience would not have been the same without your smiling face presenting another incredible delight.

There are no words to describe how amazing our week has been. From our first incredible lobster pasta to the last Christmas brunch. Everything was incredible. Who else would make a daily specialty cocktail, daily "happy muchies" along with honoring every single request made by my crazy family. Thanks even more for being a fun mate, a friend to my girls, and a lovely addition to our squad. If I could sail with you again, my response would be IMMEDIATELY YES!!

It’s a shame that the scale ends at 10 because Amber is a phenomenal hostess. Amber went above and beyond to make sure that our home away from home was clean, safe and organized. Amber also made the most amazing meals and always ALWAYS made sure that we were well feed. Amber is genuine, kind, funny, hardworking, encouraging, supportive and you can honestly tell that she loves what she does. All in all, Amber you are EXCEPTIONAL! From the bottom of my heart thank you for an amazing experience you are loved and will be missed.
