Message from Captain Tom
"The reason I love yachting is being able to inspire people, who maybe haven't had the opportunity before, to get on the water. Whether this be through charter or teaching, I love showing guests new and memorable experiences. I have a passion for finding unique and unexplored routes allowing me to share my excitement of adventure with the guests. I am a calm and dedicated captain with an eye for detail and a passion for getting people on the water."
Message from Chef Suze:
"The main thing that I love about working in yachting is being able to add value to the holiday time that guests get. Through amazing food, discovering secluded locations and exciting excursions, I am passionate about making sure my guests have the most memorable trip possible. I have been cooking professionally since 2016 and continue to refine my skills. As a qualified Divemaster and Personal Trainer I love to explore the outdoors with guests."
And about Ella Lee's delightful deckhand Dodo; Dodo is a qualified biomedical engineer who gained his dive qualification in 2012 and became a dive master in 2015. He is a true waterbaby and now wants to explore the life of a sailor. He has a passion for mixology and joined Ella Lee in the beginning of 2020.

# Loved, loved, loved Tom, Suse and Dodo. They were professional, kind, humorous, and knowledgeable.
# Our week in Antigua aboard the Ella Lee was truly exceptional! The crew, Tom, Suze and Dodo were fantastic in every way!! Suze spoiled us all with her amazing culinary skills -- fantastic. Dodo was a huge asset and his knowledge of diving and fishing were so helpful. Tom was an extraordinary captain and really went above and beyond when he altered the itinerary for us to see the trans-Atlantic rowing team in the Atlantic Challenge come into English Harbor after 39 days of rowing across the ocean. Thank you! We can't wait for our next adventure!
