Douglas & Carolyn

CAPTAIN DOUG:

Doug has always had a profound love of the ocean. Pursuing this passion from a very early age, Doug purchased his first boat years before he received his driver's license and obtained his captains license at the age of 19.

Doug's first experience navigating the Caribbean began in his early twenties on race boats. After several seasons of racing its pristine waters he came to the conclusion that he desired a more permanent (and serene) existence in the Virgin Islands. These decisions lead him to retire from the racing circuit and pursue captaining term charters.

Doug's friendly nature and vibrant sense of humor are trumped only by his wealth of knowledge pertaining to all things Caribbean. He loves sharing all the popular and exciting hot stops that the VI has to offer almost as much as he loves to whisk his guests away to the more secluded anchorages that showcase the untouched exotic beauty of the islands.

Other than his great passion, sailing, Doug also enjoys cooking, surfing, snowboarding and boat restoration. He is exceptionally energetic and generally loves any out door activity.

Doug looks forward to showing his guests all the adventure and excitement the Caribbean has to offer. You will find him to be an excellent captain who offers a very unique experience not soon to be forgotten!

CHEF CAROLYN:

Carolyn's friends and clients describe her as gregarious, warm-hearted, and adventurous. Raised in the suburbs of Chicago and a graduate of the University of Iowa, Carolyn's work ethic and warmth nod to her Midwestern roots. ..read more

Following her formal education at the University of Iowa she completed the entry-level examination with The Court of Master Sommeliers and attended Chicago's illustrious Academy of Spirits & Fine Service.

Carolyn's passion for food, wine and entertaining coupled with her appetite for knowledge built a strong foundation for her career in the hospitality industry. Having worked in restaurants for over twelve years, Carolyn has had the opportunity to fine-tune her understanding of wine and spirits and how they relate to a myriad of different cuisines.

She now focuses all of her boundless energy and brilliant creativity on the culinary masterpieces she creates for her guests. Her talent in the galley is underscored by her effortless ability to entertain.

Other than food and travel, her hobbies include photography, hiking, reading, skiing, and practicing Pilates.

Carolyn's sparkling personality, love of adventure, and innate ability to make her guests feel welcome guarantee that your trip to the Caribbean will be one to remember!

Reviews for Alternate Latitude with Douglas & Carolyn:

We found Doug and Carolyn to be VERY knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and accommodating. They were very flexible with our day to day plan and route. Our request to surf when the swell was appropriate was fulfilled with a flexible schedule. They made sure we saw the sights that they thought would interest us and they were spot on!

Alternate Latitude was comfortable, clean and well ventilated. We enjoyed the “trampoline” area at the bow and the addition of the bean bag chairs was a nice touch. We spent a lot of time at the outdoor table towards the stern which was nice.

The food was amazing! We kept asking Carolyn how she made this and that! She took pride in her work and you could tell. It was perfect and flexible, as well, as the week went on.

The early assistance with trying to find a boat was very helpful and all communication was clear.

We would definitely recommend Alternate Latitude with Doug and Carolyn. They make a great team! Doug was a very competent captain and we always felt that our family was safe while he was at the helm. Carolyn, amazing chef, scheduler and go to! They do make a great team! They were indeed interested in making sure that we were looked after and provided as many choices as possible to explore.

Doug and Carolyn thank you both so much for making this such an amazing experience for all of us. Your thoughtfulness in every decision was very much appreciated. In spite of the windy weather we were able to experience everything we were hoping to see and then some. We kept telling everybody will met that we had the best captain and first mate in the islands and we truly believe that! Carolyn you kept us well fed and your food is amazing. Thank you for our special celebration our last night. Doug thank you for being so accommodating and patient with us!!! You seem to have a great instinct of where and when we should go next.
Thank you from your new Tennessee Besty's Mitch, Rhonda, Steve and Sheila

We had an amazing trip! Carolyn and Doug were so accommodating. We caught some waves and saw some beautiful fish and sea life and relaxed. We could not have asked for a better captain and mate! Our trip would not have been the same with any other crew. Food was amazing. Hope to try some of the recipes back in VA. My kids will be my judges :-) we hope to meet back up again soon! Holly, Hans, Nathan and Sophia Watchmeisters
Dec. 18-24, 2016
Thank you Doug and Carolyn for making this a "trip of a lifetime"! Our family will forever treasure these memories. You're both went above and beyond taking care of us. The food really was such a treat and very well thought out. We thoroughly enjoyed each stop and every experience that came with it. You both are such great people and without you our experience would have not been the same. I am pretty sure Alexis and Lauren have adopted you as their new aunt and uncle. Make sure to come visit us in Arizona! Thanks again for a truly first class trip XO the hearties from Scottsdale Arizona Jack, Patty, Alexis and Lauren

Alternate latitude was a blast with Doug and Carolyn. They were a kick ass crew! Always accommodating and aware of the guests needs. The Virgin Islands were beautiful, from Virgin Gorda to Sandy Cay and soggy Dollar. It was always smooth sailing. Not to mention the delicious cocktails and meals. So good! Thank you! Max and Afi Miami Florida
Rock stars!
Carolyn,
Jennifer and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with you and Doug. You two will be 'rock stars' in the charter community if you keep it going. I know you have options to do other things but you both will bring a lot of joy to the lives of the people who are fortunate enough to sail with you. Jennifer and I want to do it again soon.

Reviews for Alternate Latitude with previous crew:

HIGHLY RECOMMEND this vacation and this crew! We definitely had a great time, and Steve and Deb were a big reason why. We were a little high maintenance on the food front: one vegetarian, one gluten free, one low carb, and one who won't eat cilantro. Deb took it all in stride and made some AWESOME meals for us. She focuses on organic, local ingredients, and you can taste it! It was so good we begged for recipes and have tried a few at home.

We told Steve that what we really wanted was good snorkeling, and so he took us to some EXCELLENT spots. We snorkeled two or three times a day, and had a great time. He picked routes so we could see a lot of different things, and still get to sites fast and spend most of our time in the water. When it got windy and wavy, he found us coves where it was easier to snorkel. And when we got out of the water, they had drinks waiting for us - girly, beach drinks, just as we requested.

They are great people, and we had a great time. The ship was extremely well maintained, and they take care of it very lovingly. Great crew, great ship, great snorkeling, great friends. What more could you ask for?

Also want to add: you, John, and Sailing Directions, were also AWESOME to work with. I asked for lots of quotes (different dates, different number of people), and asked for an extension (or possibly two) to lock in the reservation, as I tried to get commitments from the group, and you quickly and pleasantly responded to everything. Greatly appreciate the service.
