Collin & Corrine Steyn
Interested in a fun-filled, exciting time aboard Aliwe with the perfect Captain and Chef/Mate combo? Then Collin and Corinne are your team!
Collin and Corinne discovered their love for the outdoors and outdoor activities growing up on game preserves in South Africa. They love waterskiing, wakeboarding, scuba diving, sailing, dirt bike riding, camping, hiking and hunting, clearly an active couple. They relocated to the USA 15 years ago and raised their family with the same intense exposure to watersports and the outdoors at their house on Lake Anna, Virginia and their farm in South Africa. Adrenalin junkies alike they have also bungee jumped the highest commercial jump in the word, dived with great white sharks, white water rafted the Zambezi Gorge and scuba dived the Great Barrier Reef.
Collin's love for sailing grew during his conscription in the South African Navy as a Naval Officer. He has skippered sailing charters in the BVI's, Grenadines and Turkey. His love for people is evident the minute you meet him.
Corinne's attention to detail, eye for elegance and creativity can be seen through her décor style, tasteful table settings and artistic culinary skills. Her love for food preparation and hosting expanded through cooking and entertaining for friends, small corporate management teams and eventually event planning.
As 'empty nesters' they are finally able to enjoy the hospitality and sailing life-style they are so suited to and have always dreamed of.See reviews

I can't believe our trip has come to an end! What a most amazing and wonderful trip! This is by far the most relaxing vacation. The timing to all the favorite spots was amazing. I can't say enough about all the delicious meals, beautiful table-scapes, wonderful appetizers and all.
We were completely spoiled and loved every minute of it. We can't wait to come back - this is a definite 'do again'. From scuba, scooters, high jumping, beautiful secluded beaches, hot spots, turtles, we did it all! Thank you so much for your perfect personalities and hosts. You are both great people. Please keep in touch!~Joe and Bethany O
Such an amazing experience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the hospitality was perfect. The planning of food/menu and adventures was much appreciated.
We enjoyed ALL the places you took us to. I was happy to get out of my comfort zone too! Jumping off Willy T's, snorkeling and so much more. You out did yourselves and surpassed our expectations.~Pat and Michele F
We loved all your port suggestions from Willy Ts (a classic for sure) to Soggy Dollar to Indians for snorkeling, Peter Island, Cooper Island, Saba Rock.each gave us a unique taste of the BVIs. We appreciate your flexibility in picking up other family members, too.- They enjoyed it as much as us!
So sad that our week here is ending, but we will never EVER forget you both. Thank you so much for all the love and laughter.~Paula and Scott
The dream is real ! I feel like a new woman! Thanks, Collin and Corinne, for making this experience maginficent. Thank you for your kindness, culinary skills and the perfect Rojitos by Captain Colin. To share our first trip in the BVI with you has been an honor. You are so kind and generous with your experience in this beautiful place. We will come back to this paradise and for sure we will charter with you again. ~Valerie and Frederic
She is a 53 ft Sail cat built in South Africa. We have been on lots of boats, and chose her based on accommodations and the newness of this boat along with the size and spaciousness of the galley and staterooms. We were not disappointed. The headroom was amazing, and the electric toilets and showers in each stateroom were great. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage girls, and each had their own room. We, the parents, had our own state room with a king sized bed where we slept with open hatches at night and could feel ocean breezes all night... loved it!
The crew were very gracious hosts, and most accommodating to our every needs. They were first to rise and last to bed every night, but made sure we were looked after during the trip. Our oldest daughter is Vegan, and the chef made sure she had what she wanted every meal, along with honoring the rest of the familys request for more traditional meals. We had our choice for a menu (both food /snacks/and bar) and all was aboard exactly as we requested (even the Moet and Chandon Champagne). We were greeted on arrival with wonderful snacks and champagne. Our favorite part of the day was the afternoon when the chef appeared with a yummy tray of snacks and her question of our afternoon drink of choice.
The captain took us to all the highlights of the BVIs, but was open to any requests we had and would sit with us in the galley and go over the charts of the BVIs and let us pick any destination that looked good, total adventure!
We snorkeled, paddle boarded, kayaked, swam, or went sightseeing everyday, basically whatever we wanted to do. The crew were very professional, yet at the same time, became like family and interacted with us on a very personal level when they were not otherwise doing their jobs as Captain and first mate.
After trips, we typically talk amongst ourselves and decide whether we would go again. We all said we were ready to go back the very next day! ~The Miles Family South Carolina
~ Amy and Curt
We appreciate all that you did o make this something we will never forget. We came strangers but leave friends - Please come to the mountains. We always find you a bed. Thank you so much for everything.~Carna and Lee
What a wonderful week on the Aliwe! I am not sure where to begin or what to pinpoint as the "best" thing about this past week. From the sailing to the food to the excursions to the relaxation, it was truly an experience of a lifetime. I feel like we are all family now and very much look forward to the next visit Thank you Collin and Corinne for an incredible week.~ Kimberly and Billy
