Captain Wayne is from that small Country called Texas, where he met his wife Emily skydiving in the late 1990's. These two have accomplished things together that many people only dream about. They have truly walked the talk with some of the most unbelievable life experiences.

In 2013, Wayne and Emily commissioned Royal Cape Catamaran in Durban, South Africa to build S/V Manna, a true 53' ocean going vessel customized for the Scuba Diver with water level dive entry and ladder. Once the yacht was launched and sea trails were completed, Captain Wayne with his crew sailed Manna across the Atlantic and fell in love with the Caribbean islands. So, yet another decision was made to share that passion with others by chartering her throughout these amazing islands.

In addition to Wayne and Emily (who is administration only), Manna’s team also consists of Captain Allen and Chef Lucrecia “Lu” Lawson who are also from Texas. Allen Lawson was raised in a family that loved boating. At a very young age, he found his first love and bought a Cabin Cruiser at the age of 24. For the last decade, Allen has been sailing the seas around the world with friends and family, so you can sail in peace knowing that your Captain is up for any task at hand. Chef Lu started her journey under the guidance of a family of chefs. With a hit of Southern style to her cooking, Chef Lu will keep your palates entertained, and wondering how it is even possible that each meal gets better and better! Wow, my taste buds are getting excited just thinking about it. Together they make the Ultimate team and on the Seas it’s a combo that spares no attention to detail. With Allen’s “ Get’er Done” mentality, fun and lovable personality matched by the attentiveness and out-going personality of Lu, trust us when we say you will wish your trip never ends!

If you’re looking for a Charter Group you can trust in delivering the knowledge, skill, safety and expertise, along with the needed excitement to make your vacation special, look no further. The Team with S/V Manna is your ticket. Take a moment and read the reviews and you will find the they can customize any vacation for anybody, including your own group. Simply tell them what you want and sit back and watch the Magic happen.

In a way to give back, Wayne and Emily founded a nonprofit organization called “Manna for Missionaries”, in which they along with Allen, have sailed over 60,000 nautical miles during the off-season delivering supplies for humanitarian relief efforts and missionaries around the world.

Scuba Dive? Of course. Wayne is a PADI Instructor and Allen is a PADI Divemaster with a strong passion for diving. When divers come onboard, S/V Manna offers "Unlimited" dives to all certified divers. Who does that? Forget about the need to schedule and pay the additional cost for rendezvous diving or dives onboard. It's all part of the package and Wayne or Allen will dive with you as much as you would like at no extra charge. Now that’s walking the talk.

Not a diver? No worries we have plenty for you to do above the water including skiing, wake boarding, towable's, hiking and dancing among a few. Who knows maybe you would like to give diving a try through a discover scuba course or even complete your certified while onboard. There is a charge for the PADI Certification but no charge for your dives. If that is of interest, visit with Wayne or Allen before your Charter starts and they will be more than happy to put a plan together just for you. Some study's will need to be done online prior to arriving.

To wrap this Crew profile up, Wayne and Allen have a experience level of over 20+ years sailing and learning some of the best locations throughout the Caribbean islands in order to share the Magic with you. So, wait no longer! Come aboard and let’s get this party started!
