Ryan and Dani are an award winning duo, amassing a lifetime of experience and knowledge throughout their chartering career to date. These two possess a genuine ability to seamlessly mix fun with professionalism, leaving guests feeling welcome and well-accommodated. In their 3rd season aboard Stop Work Order, Dani and Ryan continue to bring the culmination of their vast career experience to their guests.
Captain Ryan took to the great outdoors from the very start, growing up in the countryside of Ohio. Whether he was playing football or baseball, boating on the many nearby lakes, or taking family fishing trips to the lakes of Canada, he could be found enjoying what nature had to offer. Ryan brings that same appreciation for the outdoors to his career as a professional charter captain. He holds a 100-ton Coast Guard Credential with a sailing endorsement and gained a wealth of critical knowledge over the past 4 years, captaining a sailing catamaran all throughout the Caribbean. Diving is such an extreme passion for Captain Ryan that he is a PADI certified dive instructor with over 400 recorded dives. Ryan is also known to whip up award-winning cocktails, having won Best Cocktail at the Fall VICL Yacht Show 2 years in a row!
Chef Dani brings along an adventurous spirit that is bound to rub off on those around her. Also growing up in Ohio, she spent her time being very active whether it was playing softball, golfing, fishing or, most of all, being in or near the water. Her first trip to the Virgin Islands at age 17 made her realize that one day she would trade the ponds and lakes for the ocean. She made that trade in 2012 and has been immersing herself in the Caribbean culture ever since. For the last 4 years she has been the chef aboard her charter catamaran, honing her culinary skills and delighting her guests' taste buds with a wide range of cuisines. She has been professionally trained and holds a Certificate in Culinary Arts from Ashburton Chefs Academy, a CTH Level 2 Award in Culinary Skills, and an HABC Level 2 Award in Food Safety. She has also taken classes at the Culinary Institute of America. The passion that she has found in food continues to inspire new and creative dishes which led to her winning 2nd place in the dessert category at the annual VIPCA Yacht Show. Her attention to detail and great sense of humor leaves her guests well-fed and entertained! She is up for any challenges to create new and exciting meals that fit her guests' preferences and desires.
Ryan and Dani are excited to deliver high-end vacations to their guests, offering friendly, personable service and professionalism that matches the luxury, comfort and accommodation of Stop Work Order. Over the course of the last 5 years they have sailed over 7,000 nautical miles spanning all the way to Grenada. Their passion for people, food, love of the water and sailing creates both an adventurous and a welcoming environment felt by all.
Dani has been professionally trained and has received the following awards:
Certificate in Culinary Arts from Ashburton Chefs Academy
CTH Level 2 Award in Culinary Skills
HABC Level 2 Award in Food Safety
Her training has expanded her knowledge and inspired her to continue down the creative path of culinary arts. She cannot wait to share her passion of food with her guests!
