Captain Michael
Michael was born and raised in Texas and grew up loving the outdoors with his dad taking him on countless hiking, canoeing, and camping adventures. After university and working in the corporate world for five years, he decided to make a change and enjoy the outdoors through sailing as a career! He started off his sailing career in the Mediterranean and now calls the Caribbean home. He also loves the underwater world and earned his Divemaster in Cozumel followed by his Instructor License in Roatan. His favorite fish is the porcupine fish so you will see him frantically point each one out when you go diving! When away from sailing he is exploring new parts of the world, meeting new people, and eating as many new cuisines he can find!
–Interests: Hiking, Diving, Cooking, Reading, Finding the next board sport to wipeout in.

Chef Casey
Casey, born and raised in Florida, has always been happiest when on the water. After specializing in hospitality and event management at the University of Florida, she worked at luxury, private golf resorts before transitioning into residential real estate. After years of the work grind, she decided adventure was waiting for her. She left behind the “norm ” and caught the travel bug-bad! Before deciding to call the Caribbean home, she was a nomad traveling the world experiencing the kindness of strangers, new cultures, and all things food!

She is a foodie through and through and her passion for food began at a young age always cooking and baking with her mom in the kitchen. She loves incorporating all different cuisines and has a passion for how food can bring people together. She has been a full-time yacht chef in the Mediterranean and Caribbean since 2019. To hone her skills, she’s attended Ashburton Culinary Academy in England and Superyacht Culinary Academy in South Africa.

First Mate Christo
Christo grew up on the coast of Hermanus, South Africa, where we are surrounded by nature. Mountains and forest on the one side and a rough and cold ocean on the other. From a young age he has been a lover for the ocean and its thrills. Whether it is surfing, free diving or spearfishing he always enjoyed being in the water.

After he completed school, He received the opportunity to start a 1-year internship at Neptune’s Divers and cruises, After the year was over, He received a permanent position as sole deckhand and divemaster for 4 years. The fact that my office is on top and underneath the ocean makes me extremely happy. This is what drew me towards yachting, I just love being around or in the big blue sea.

Stewardess Chene
She was born in Gauteng, but grew up in the vibrant Western Cape, South Africa. She has a passion for mother nature as she has always been in/on or around mountains and the ocean. Her father always dreamt that she would work in the yachting industry as he was a huge lover of sailing. They would go out sailing with his friends at any opportunity.

After completing school, She moved from Cape Town to Onrus/ Hermanus and started
working in the hospitality industry. After a few years she met my life partner, who shares the same passions as she does. Her and Christo then decided to start our journey together in yachting. They continue to stay dedicated and determined to learn and grow within this industry and run successful charters.

General Diving Info

Michael is a PADI Dive Instructor and Josh is a PADI Divemaster. Between the two of them you are in safe hands exploring the underwater world!

Guests interested in diving are required to fill out a medical questionnaire/liability waiver and potentially obtain doctor’s clearance prior to coming down to the Virgin Islands. Additionally, certified divers must send a copy of their diver certification card prior to the trip.

Aeolus offers a complimentary Discover Scuba Dive (Resort Course) to guests that are not certified divers (10 year old minimum age). This includes a ~1 hour safety and theory course along with a ~30 minute shallow water dive.

Certified divers can dive up to three times throughout the charter. Additional dives will be up to the discretion of the Captain based on the itinerary and weather conditions.

Aeolus offers diving education including PADI Open Water and Advanced courses. All E-Learning will need to be completed prior to the charter and we highly recommend completing the confined water sections with a local shop prior to the trip. This allows you to finish out the course with the open water dives and not consume too much of the trip!

Diving Costs information
All the necessary dive gear is complimentary onboard Aeolus. If you have preferred gear that works for you, we recommend bringing it along! Our vessel uses Scuba Pro Gear including everything necessary for PADI courses as well.

Open Water Referral Course: $400pp
Advanced Open Water Course: $300pp
Additional DSD Dives: $100pp

Payment for diving is preferable as Venmo or Cash to the Instructor.

We recommend getting DAN diver insurance or a comparable policy for your trip.
