Captain: Dillon Mowery
Dillon and Amanda's Crew Profile
Dillon was born in the city of Albuquerque, NM. After graduating he spent one year at Central Michigan University studying outdoor recreation.
Dillon’s first job at sea was on board a glass-bottom shipwreck tour boat for NOAA. This job was the spark that ignited the fire that continues to drive Dillon today. Quickly he became a PADI divemaster which allowed him to work as an aquarist at Albuquerque Aquarium as well as a dive guide in Kona, Hawaii. Thus, expanding his love for the ocean and awareness of conservation of the sea. In Hawaii, he realized his passion for sailing and the open ocean which is why he set his sights on earning his captain's license. His ambitions grew alongside his boating and sailing skills, which earned him the opportunity to accept jobs that took him all over the world. His abilities allowed him to explore new places within the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Indian Oceans, sailing thousands of miles. His love and passion for the sea emanates to all his guests on board as you explore the waters together.
Amanda was born in Orange County, CA. She spent her early years in the Netherlands, traveling all over Europe until she moved back to the US. Her father would take her out on fishing charters for days at a time with no land in sight. Inspiring her thirst for travel and the ocean, which in turn fueled her adult life and career. Naturally she majored in Biology of Anthropology at Cal State University where she quickly joined the Anthropological society. She earned the opportunity to travel to India with the Himalayan Health Exchange. One month in the mountains she supplied medicine to villagers while learning the local customs and Indian cuisine. It was so fascinating to see how these cooks, in such high elevation, would make such detailed, beautiful dishes with using only what small tools they had. It was interesting for her to see that you don’t need much to create great dishes, just creativity and ingenuity. Prior to her India experience, during the course of her academic career, she would make elaborate meals for her family each week day. Having a full kitchen and all the tools seemed necessary, but watching those gentlemen cook with little to no electricity, and home grown fresh produc showed her otherwise. Cooking was Amanda’s way of connecting and showing her appreciation for family and friends.
After college, it seemed only fitting to try a new adventure and this ideology allowed her to move to a concierge position at the Hyatt in Maui. She spent five years growing and sharing her love for the islands with each client. Also, lived in Hawaiian homes for the first few months which was a cultural shock, in a great way! Learned many Hawaiian traditions, from using a three prong to catch fish and octopus, to helping prepare meals for large Hawaiian families... it takes an entire day, incredible!!!
Six months before leaving the island, her aspirations drove her to owning a business in Charleston, SC and then two years later Dillon and Amanda decided to embarked on a new venture in St. Thomas running term charters where they love welcoming new guests onboard every week , providing funfilled land and water activities and creating fantastic memories.
