CAPTAIN ADAM BERMINGHAM
Adam was born in Dublin, Ireland but grew up next to the river Thames in London. Being so close to the water was the perfect opportunity to get started in sailing and powerboating and he did so from the Age of 8. During his upbringing, he competed heavily in both match fleet and powerboat racing getting recognized by Team GB in his teenage years. There was no doubt that Adam would be a successful Captain as it was his lifelong aspiration. In 2015 he completed his Yachtmaster Offshore 200ton Licence for both Sail & Motor yachts, he wasted no time breaking into the industry and his drive and determination have allowed him to take charge of various private & charter vessels in his 7 years as captain.
“I pride myself on providing an unforgettable charter experience for all guests who step on board, during my 7 years as Captain there is nothing more satisfying than taking guests to the most amazing and remote places around the world whilst providing a personable 5-star experience. Guest satisfaction and feedback have allowed me to create lasting friendships with many clients who have returned for future charters. With a great sense of humour and supported by our knowledgeable crew I can assure guests their needs and requests will be taken care of onboard MAREBLU”

My client said that the crew was outstanding. Very Professional. Ellie Mae the 3rd crew pampered the group and Chef Melissa’s cuisine was Superb.
They had a wonderful charter.

We appreciate working with you.

Myself & 3 couples had a tremendous experience with Adam and his crew touring the Exumas on a 65 ft power cat. Adam is an incredibly knowledgeable 28-year-old from Ireland. He has exceptional understanding of the mechanics of the boat. He has a fun, calm, leadership fashion that keeps the crew focused and enjoying the experience. He has an extremely good knowledge of the water, navigation, logistics and regularly did briefings with us about the day and what we were seeing with wildlife and all of the natural wonders of the Exumas. Highly recommend him.

WOW, wow, wow! I just got off the phone with Travis. He and his wife had an absolutely amazing time with you on Mareblu. It could not have been any better. He thought that you were a great team, and they had so much fun with you. Sounds like quite last night in Nassau.
They loved the boat and thought everything was in topnotch condition with excellent amenities. They were so impressed by your cooking, Melissa. He said that he has the opportunity to dine at some of the best restaurants in the country, and yours was on a par, even better. They were so impressed by the fantastic job that you did with vegan cuisine.
I asked if he had any constructive criticism, and he really thought about it. “I have not had one negative thought or complaint run through my mind about anything. It was perfect."
They truly appreciated your sense of adventure. Thanks for showing them such a great time and being so tuned in to what thy needed on this vacation.
I look forward to working with you again.

We are about to board our flight back to reality and wanted to get this email out describing our trip on Mare Blu. It was awesome. From the boat itself to the incredible crew it exceeded all expectations. We were especially happy with the crew. Adam, Melissa, and Aleya had wonderful chemistry with each other and their guests. Each one were great at their jobs. The food was awesome and the service impeccable. I could go on and on but you get the message. Keep them together as long as you can. We will be back.
What a fantastic experience! Every detail was seen to and perfect. Adam is a great captain, mixologist, and busboy! Melissa impressed us all at every meal. Just outstanding! Aleya is just a precious soul who entertained us with new card games, water sports and even made us macrame bracelets for souvenirs. She’s a sweetheart! I can’t say enough about this awesome team!
The boat is spectacular and our accommodations were nice. We were in one of the smaller staterooms and had space for everything we needed.
I would definitely charter this boat again!
Thank you for all your information and attention to detail before our trip. The only surprises were pleasant and food related lol!!
Thank you so much for such a memorable trip and so may incredible experiences. We loved every moment! You are both amazing hosts!

Thank you so much for a most enjoyable week on Mare Blu. We had a fantastic time on board with you and our close friends, at Skinny legs and the floating taco bar, Honeymoon Beach, Caneel Bay, snorkeling and just relaxing. This was such a treat for us!
Our sincere thanks,

Captain Jason and Chef Mindy,
Thank you so much for making our first charger boat trip and first trip to the Virgin Islands so awesome! We enjoyed relaxing in the sun, swimming in the beautiful blue waters, the great food and cocktails! We appreciate your gracious hospitality and knowledge of the islands. This was a bucket list item for us, and it was wonderful! The magic tricks and playing “cards against humanity” with you was a bonus!

We have had the most magical time on Dolphin Daze. We are so grateful for your hospitality, patience and kindness. Thank you for embracing all the kiddos and their energy! They are sad to end their VI adventure today, but like us, they have lasting memories that will be talked about for years to come.
Mindy, the food was OUTSTANDING! You are quite talented! I know feeding our big family was no small feat.

Couldn't Have Asked For A Better Crew!
Thank you guys for such an amazing vacation! I don't think that we could have asked for a better chef and captain! This has definitely been the best vacation that I have been on by far! Chef Mindy, your food is the best food that I have ever had, I also think that's the most I have eaten in a long time :)
Captain Jason, I've really enjoyed watching you and Mindy work together, when in the kitchen and all of the duties on the boat. Your positive attitude is awesome and made this trip amazing.
I could go on and on about how amazing this trip has been, but I might run out of paper.
Thank you both so much.
Above &Beyond Our Expectations.
Capt Jason and Chef Mindy , you two were above and beyond our expectations!
this was a family trip that we will all remember for a lifetime. You made an already close family, closer. Seeing you two work together was an inspiration for any relationship. We could not have picked a better pair for our family than the two of you.
I know we will be telling stories from this trip for a very long time. Chef Mindy, thank you for the absolutely incredible food and Capt Jason thanks for always doing the dishes :)
Thank you for planning all the fun on shore excursions and sharing all the history with us. Thank you for going above and beyond with the kids and making their experience amazing as well.
We have been looking forward to this trip for so long and now we can start to plan and look forward to our next adventure with the two of you!
Thanks again for everything!!
This has been an unforgettable week of experiences! thank you both so much for all the local knowledge and history to make this such an amazing trip for all of us. I know we will be telling stories from this trip for a long long time; and probably how much we are missing the food!!
A Week of Adventures
Jason and Mindy, thank you for an incredible week of adventures! Loved all the hikes you suggested, snorkel spots, kayak adventures and of course the hammock. The food and company made it a perfect week!
You Guys Are Great!

Truly A Trip Of A Lifetime!
Thank you so much for all you did to make our trip one of the most memorable ever! Both of you were so easy to be around and know how to be very gracious hosts! ....And then there was the Food!! Oh my, Mindy you are an amazing chef. There was not one meal that we didn't finish - WOW!
So many laughs and so much fun. Truly a trip of a lifetime.
We Loved Every Minute
What a Trip! the laughs, funs and good times and people were what made it a trip of a lifetime. Chef Mindy deserves special mention for every meal cooked - each one was beyond delicious. And Jason for answering the same questions over and over - haha- and keeping all the toys ready for all of us to enjoy. We appreciate everything y'all did for us to make our trip magical.
We loved every minute.
We felt like royalty!
Thank you again for a trip of a lifetime!
The first day was our son's 10th birthday and it was one Jack will never forget. Thank you for spoiling him with his favorite meal in the whole world!
Every meal was phenomenal and elegantly served. We felt like royalty! So many favorites mixed with delicious new foods to try.
Spending Easter on Dolphin Daze was so special - coloring eggs and finding them and going on shore to a beautiful Easter Morning church service!
The icing on the cake was renewing our vows for our 20th Anniversary at the hands of Captain Jason followed by a 20's swing dance party! Wigs, costumes and all - Mindy you are a Master of Costumes and fun.
Where do I begin?
This trip has been a dream of ours and to be able to be here fulfilled it, and with you was incredible!
From the moment we stepped on Dolphin Daze, you took care of every need BEFORE we even knew we needed it. Our daughters will never forget any detail and return will we.
From the fabulous food, delicious cocktails, fun hikes, water mat antics, sunset cocktails to the excursions - all made us feel so special - new friends for life!
Many many thanks!
I cannot say enough good things about this trip. You guys went over and above to accommodate us and make sure we were having fun. Every bit of food and cocktail consumed on this trip was amazing. Y'all may not realize this but beyond the things that you did to make our trip wonderful, you gave us an opportunity to forget about day to day duties back home by allowing us to just be our pre-kid, pre-responsibility selves and that's what made this trip priceless.
What a fabulous trip! We truly enjoyed every moment - from our gourmet meals to the fantastic excursions.
I Laughed More Than I Ever Have.
Jason and Mindy thank you for helping me slide into my 50th year! It will certainly be memories I will never forget. From Beginning to end every detail was thought of and taken care of with a smiling face. Every meal and drink was made to perfection. I think I laughed more than I ever have and truly loved every second spent with your guys!
I truly hope our paths cross again.
Cannot Thank You Enough
I know you all are preparing for your next guests tomorrow, but I wanted to reach out and say thank you again. I cannot thank you all enough for making our 50 Years of Tita trip one of the best I have ever had in my life. Everything was perfect and so well thought out. I know that so much effort went in on your parts but you both made it look effortless. We hated to leave and getting back to work and life was no fun today but at least we were able to escape for a while. I hope you all have a great season. You are both so, so good at what you do. Be careful and have fun coaching up your next guests on Mexican Train Dominoes. We will definitely be back once our livers recover.
What A Fabulous Week
Thank you so much for all our fun experiences - old and new. Our word of the day helped expand our grey matter i.e. efficacy, smarmy, ...... Our drinks of the day throughout the days helped us realize our need for AA meetings :)
Seriously we enjoyed everything about our week so much, the food was fabulous and the company superb.
See you soon
