Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela both from USA have been working on day sailing charters as Captain & Crew for over 3 years, and most recently a year together on a term charter yacht exploring all throughout the US and British Virgin Islands. They have been spreading their passion for sailing, snorkeling, and all around adventuring to thousands of guests from all over the world on a daily basis. Furthermore, Andrew and Michaela are excited to take their passions to the next level for Ocelot and to show their guests all the amazing things the Virgin Islands has to offer.
Andrew was a late bloomer to the world of sailing, growing up in suburban Chicago. But he knew his passion for the ocean was there from an early age, and moved to San Diego for college, and proceeded to take sailing lessons immediately upon his arrival. Starting off in boats hardly bigger then himself, his passion for all things ocean continued to grow as rapidly as his sailing experience in and around southern California. Upon graduation from San Diego State, with a degree in hospitality & tourism, Andrew decided to focus on sailing, and became a US Sailing Certified Instructor, and spent his time teaching sailors new and old the wonders of the ocean. A quick return to the Midwest, and cold Chicago winters, ended with Andrew getting his USCG Master Captains license, and a move “Down Island” to pursue his dream of becoming a full time Captain. He is now excited to continue chasing his dream, and to share his love for all things ocean with all of his guests, as he continues to grow as a diver, surfer, chef, host, bartender, and most importantly lifetime sailor.
Born and raised in the Virgin Islands, Michaela spent her childhood working at her fathers dive shop on St. John. Spending her formative years scuba diving, sailing and snorkeling she considers her-self a professional mermaid. After receiving a Bachelors degree in Business Management From Five Towns College In Long Island NY, and while attending school she established four years of experience in the service industry. Michaela found her talents for communicating and connecting with people while representing and promoting big name brands at events in the New York City. After four years she was drawn back home to the water and has dedicated the last three years to the charter business. Highly knowledgeable about local waters and hotspots she is excited about sharing her unique and beautiful home. She has a super energetic spirit that keeps her constantly looking for adventure and new friends.
Collectively Andrew and Michaela have traveled to 45 countries and are on a constant quest to never grow up. They fell in love surrounded by the turquoise water of the Caribbean and soon after realized they made spectacular sailing partners. Their dream became a reality on a Summer sailing trip to the Greek islands and they knew they were meant to make it their career. With their professional sailing experience, unique island expertise, and impeccable hosting backgrounds, they are ready to show their guests a one of a kind, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Dear Andrew & Michaela,
Thank you for making our vacation so special! We loved every singly minute of it and really appreciate all of your hard work! Everyone in our family had fun, doing what they lie; snorkeling, scuba diving, subwinging, and (me) reading my books 🙂 The food was amazing (we will definitely miss that!) and the evenings filled with “aggressive Uno” playing and banagrams laughs! We wish you all the best in the world, and look forward to cruising with you again soon!
The LXXX Family
