Stephen moved to St Thomas from Hilton Head Island, SC where he operated a kayak nature tour. He really enjoyed seeing people interact with the surrounding beauty and loved to facilitate their personal experiences with nature. Stephen also spent time working in the restaurant industry on Hilton Head, and he learned to become a very creative mixologist working behind the bar.
Once Stephen moved to St Thomas, he fully immersed himself in the culture and the lifestyle. He quickly picked up free diving and spear fishing, both as a way of enjoying his days off and spending time on the water and as a way of treating himself and his friends to delicious, fresh seafood. Stephen is an avid free diver and knows all the best lobster spots in the Virgin Islands. From jumping in the water with a snorkel and mask to seeing his guests taking the first bite of his catch, grilled to perfection, Stephen truly loves the whole process of “Sea-To-Table.”
Stephen has his USCG Masters License and a STCW 95 certification. He has logged over 4500nm sailing from places between New England down to South America. Stephen has experience navigating on both open ocean and near-shore bodies of water. He truly enjoys the life of a sailor. He is a high energy captain and couldn’t be more excited about helping to make peoples’ dream vacations better than they ever could imagine.
This being Stephen’s fifth season as a captain aboard a term charter yacht, he knows all of the secrets the US and British Virgin Islands have to offer. It will not be uncommon to pull into a little beach bar and receive the local treatment when guests arrive with Captain Stephen!
Caitie has always had an unexplainable love for the ocean. Some of her favorite memories are bass fishing with her dad and hitting the open ocean on her grandfather’s fishing boat. She never truly understood the meaning of this passion until she moved to the US Virgin Islands in 2014 after obtaining her B.S. in Biology from East Carolina University.
A year later she found herself living in South Africa, cage diving with Great White sharks and free diving the reef systems off the Mozambique coastline. During this time, she realized that the ocean was where she was meant to be, so she obtained her STCW 95 certification to work as crew aboard yachts and returned to the U.S. Virgin Islands. She joined Stephen and three other crew to assist in the delivery of a catamaran sailing from Tortola to Trinidad. After spending the next several years working for several different USVI charter companies, Caitie earned her USCG Master Captain License, and then attended Ashburton School of Culinary in England.
Working in the service industry since she was old enough to hold a job, Caitie has learned all about the importance of creating memorable experiences for guests. She believes it is always about the little things, and that is what she and Stephen try to capture in every unique charter.
The cuisine aboard Ghost is designed with adventure in mind. Sea-to-table is one of Caitie and Stephen’s specialties and they love to get their guests in on the action! She delights in creating flavorful, delicious meals that are not only fresh, healthy and beautiful, but catered perfectly to your dietary preferences.
