Grayson grew up on the sunny coast of Durban in South Africa, and in the greatest garden of lions and leopards of the Kruger National Park. Grayson studied Sports Management and Development before he decided to take a leap and finished his Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) certificates to join the yachting industry. Not only does Grayson’s interests lay with the ocean but he used to be a professional cricket player, he did provincial deep-sea angling, and loves shooting, sports, fishing and movies…. Grayson is a happy, helpful and patient person. His biggest challenge in life has been having to duck everywhere he goes (6ft4) and one day when he grows up he would like to drive a F1, be retired and win the lottery. Even though Grayson is always ready for a good laugh it’s important for him to run a successful charter program for the owner, guests, captain and crew.

Deckhand / Dive instructor
Garrett was born in a ‘middle of nowhere’ farming community in Northern Michigan, USA. After high school, Garrett studied engineering at the University of Michigan where he was also a member of the Michigan sailing team (he would love to run a teen sailing / diving adventure summer camp one day). Once finished with University he spent a year in Michigan working to become a PADI scuba instructor. Even though Garrett seems like the ordinary deckhand with hobbies such as diving, fishing and sailing you would never say that he was an All-state wrestler and has a strange likening for mustard on anything. Garrett has a good sense of humour (up to interpretation) and is hard working, that’s why it’s so important for him to have a close, fun, but also hardworking crew.
Matt is the live wire on the boat that keeps the crew moral high. He grew up on the dusty streets of Durban South Africa. After school Matt studied BCom Marketing and Business Administration and then majored in Economics. He also has a big passion for sports and played WOB Rugby for eight years. Something funny about Matt as he would describe it would be his charming whit, the twinkle in his eye, his cheeky smile and don’t forget about the devilish sense of humour. He is also convinced that people like Jennifer Anniston, Stephen Hawking and Obama would be attracted to his type of personality…typical Matt, always making sure everyone has a good laugh and a smile on their faces. Even though a light, happy and positive morale is important for Matt he also emphasises the importance of teamwork, respect, cleanliness and honesty onboard the boat, and of course good food.
