Tylers southern charm and hospitality will make you feel right at home as soon as you step aboard Playtime. An athlete, his aquatic adventures began at Camp Merrie-Woode, where he grew up kayaking and rafting the many lakes and white-water rivers that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. At the age of 10, Tyler became scuba certified. He played varsity college lacrosse, and graduated with a degree in Outdoor Experiential Education from Appalachian State University. After college, he pursed his dream to live on the ocean by moving to Key Largo, FL, where he began his professional diving career. He not only became an accomplished scuba dive instructor but also a master captain with a 50- ton license. The charter industry allows Tyler to share what he is passionate about on a daily basis with families and friends like yours. While on charter, Tyler will impart his knowledge of sailing, diving and cooking. His interests only begin on the water, as he is amazing in the galley. You will hear him whistling away while he cooks up a scrumptious dish for everyone to enjoy after a day in the sun and water.
Chef Christian Doyle
Hailing from sailing-centric Annapolis, Maryland, Christian’s origins are in the maritime community. It was here that she fell in love with the beach, tall ships and the ocean. Making her way down the coast, she studied psychology at UNCW and following graduating in 2006, it was a cheap one-way ticket and the dream of being an “island girl” that brought her to St. John, Virgin Islands. It was in the Virgin Islands that Christian fell in love with and learned to respect the beauty of sailing. Her passion for hospitality, food, health and wellness is what eventually brought her to study holistic culinary nutrition at Bauman College in Berkeley, California. Once becoming a certified natural chef Christian worked with private clients, top restaurants in Virgin Islands, and cheffed on Luxury catamarans/Motor yachts. Her flexibility, excellent team work, and positive attitude has rewarded her the opportunity to work along side a number of talented chefs and charter crews. There is no stopping Christian from continuing her education in the culinary/charter world.
Kieran & Michelle met back in 2012 in Mexico whilst working in the dive industry as instructors and photographers. Since then they have been on an unstoppable adventure that has taken them across the Caribbean, Americas, Europe & SE Asia.
They have now been in the charter industry for 5 years and are definitely enjoying their home in the British Virgin Islands. A country full of history and secrets that has allowed them to slowly discover more and more as their adventure continues.
Both Kieran & Michelle were led to the ocean by a passion for scuba diving and adventure, it is was this passion that formed the foundation for a life destined on the ocean. Being on boats has been an integral part of their lives since they were young and it was a natural progression to move on to running sailing yachts in the Caribbean.
Michelle is a trained chef, completing the Ashburton Chefs academy in 2017 to add to her extensive personal experience of working under an array of incredible Yacht & Restaurant Chefs. She also has dive instructor rating and is a qualified captain that thrives on deck.
Kieran is an accomplished diver as well as Captain. He enjoys most water sports and has a keen interest in marine life.
Following Irma & Maria in 2017, Kieran & Michelle spent 15 months living on Tortola rebuilding a hurricane damaged catamaran and returned it to the charter fleet. This was an invaluable experience for any charter crew rebuilding a yacht from the ground up and learning every aspect of the rebuild, repairs and upgrades along the way. Here they collectively developed a strong knowledge of Boat Building, Project Management and general Marine Engineering.
In addition to working on charter yachts, Kieran & Michelle’s other passion is adventure and photography. It is this combination that led to the birth of Panga Expedtions. For the past 6 years they have been travelling the world, capturing incredible footage from both above and below the surface and have been featured on countless National TV Channels/Online Media Oulets including Nat Geo, Discovery, Shark Week, GoPro & Google. Whilst enjoying brief sponsorships from GoPro, Light & Motion and other adventure sport companies to help capture incredible footage.
They’re now working on developing a worldwide itinerary that will include guided trips to participate in; Humpback Whales in water interactions, Tiger Shark Dives, Wakeboarding, Whitewater Kayaking, Mountain Biking whilst being filmed in 4K. This will be operated during the hurricane season and will allow them the opportunity to both charter and pursue their dream of running expeditions.
Twin Flame will be accompanied by a third crew member Markee Serecin.

Markee grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and had found a love for the water since before she could walk. Growing up cruising the 3 rivers of Pittsburgh Markee wanted a little more adventure, so she spent many summers on Lake Erie where she found her love of sailing through dinghy sailing. Eventually Markee grew up and had a career in fitness where she owned her own gym, but the Sea was still calling her name. So she sold everything and made her way into the yachting industry. Sailing Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Sardina, and the Caribbean.
