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 Josh
Growing up in rural Ireland, Josh’s love for the outdoors was engrained into him throughout his childhood. His first time sailing was when his father surprised him and his siblings with a sailing holiday, instead of a theme park, much to their disappointment. With five people crammed onto a 28ft yacht, Josh, who was 7 and the youngest, slept on the floor, over a step. He’s loved sailing ever since. At 18, he began to work on sail yachts which has taken him all around the globe, from Europe to New Zealand and almost everywhere in between. With his RYA Yachtmaster, Padi Divemaster and a love for anything outdoors – from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans – you can be sure Josh will make your sailing holiday as adventurous as you please.

Stewardess Nicole
Born and raised in Miami, Nicole is one of the many natives who will tell you that South Florida is more Caribbean than American. She has loved the water since birth, and she would never forgive herself for passing up any water sports opportunity. After finishing up two degrees, she took herself to Europe and finished her Master’s, discovered a love of mountains, and a complete devotion to the outdoors. In the last decade, Nicole’s independent adventures have led her around the world, across six continents, in a wide variety of service-oriented jobs. She has returned to the Caribbean bright eyed, bushy tailed, and full of nostalgia. She is confident that her exposure to multiple cultures, etiquettes and cocktails has equipped her with the skills required to help facilitate the warmest hospitality experience possible.

While onboard guests will be encouraged to visit the “must see’s”, and also to get off the grid and experience the beauty and nature that the Virgins Islands have to offer. Your crew loves helping the guests capture priceless moments with their Drone, DSLR, GoPro, and Polaroid Camera. They are excited to have you onboard and provide unforgettable experiences around these beautiful islands.

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.
