Alan & Amy
Captain Alan Collinge:
Alan was introduced to yachting at an early age in the South of Spain, mentored by his grandfather he quickly developed a passion for the ocean and life at sea. After finishing school in Johannesburg, he moved to the town of Zinkwazi on the South African North Coast. Over the next 3 years spent his time Lifeguarding the local beaches and teaching shark Scuba Diving on the famous Aliwal Shoal, (a reef 5 miles out to sea). In 2013 Alan moved to Cyprus where he would work as a Scuba Diving Instructor/Crew on a diving boat for the next 2 years. Alan decided to take his yachting passion to the next level in 2015 where he Captained a 58ft Sailing Catamaran in the British Virgin Islands and has now taken command of Dolphin Splash.
Chef/1st Mate Amy Carmichael:
Having grown up in St Francis Bay, situated on the south east coast of South Africa, a thatched village famous for surfing, she became an avid surfer and developed a deep love for the ocean.
After helping some friends sail their yacht down from St Francis Bay to Cape town, the sailing bug had bitten her and she soon found herself on her first Atlantic crossing to the Caribbean.
The crossing brought her to the British Virgin Islands where she found a job as a stewardess/deckhand on a 58' catamaran for the next two years.
It is here she met Alan and after some time traveling the world together they decided it was time to run their own catamaran as captain and chef.
With her love of the ocean and a passion for cooking, Amy developed her cooking skills through a top culinary course to refine her skills.
Amy's nick name is our 'cuisine queen'.See reviews

Beyond perfect is all Wendy and myself can say, I do want to let you know that Alan and Amy are/were beyond perfect for us. Wonderfully congenial from the very moment we met them, we knew this vacation was going to be amazing. Fantastic service, we were never without anything and all meals were set around our schedule. All of us enjoyed their company from the moment we met them both. They attended to our every need. The food was absolutely fabulous, Amy is a wonderful chef! Alan is a knowledgeable and capable Captain. His choice of destinations were perfect for what we wanted.
They make a great crew complement together. Dolphin Splash is exceptionally comfortable, with plenty of space for 6 guests to socialize. Being brand new means she is beautiful, we were all most impressed. Dolphin Splash was kept spotlessly clean when we were on board Alan and Amy seemed to be constantly cleaning & wiping surfaces to keep her in top condition. We all just wanted Alan and Amy around us all the time, super fun and charming. 3 Meals everyday were fantastic, Chef Amy is our cuisine queen and that included appetizers and all deserts, we have lots of pictures.
This was the vacation of a lifetime and we would love to do this again. It will now be very difficult to have a normal vacation at a beach! Nothing will compare. Thank you Alan and Amy for such a fabulous week-WE MISS YOU ALREADY

I wanted to write and tell you what a great job Alan and Amy did on the DOLPHIN SPLASH. WOW, You made a great recommendation. Both were very professional and interacted with us and our kids well. Alan planned a great route and Amy cooked the most amazing food. I was a little concerned about the 44 ft. but the way it was constructed made it feel a lot bigger, we especially liked the sky deck.
I tried to make some Apple Roses before the trip and did a video which I sent to Amy (enclosed). There was no comparison, hers were much better.
Thanks for the great trip, I don't think it could have been any better!.
Hope to work with you again.
Happy New Year,
Pam and Bob
Captain Alan and Amy were wonderful hosts! They showed us all the best of the British Virgin Islands. And along the way served us 5 Star meals, were focused on our enjoyment and worked very hard to make it one of our best family vacations.
We have been fortunate to experience wonderful locations and lodging in many great locations across the globe. However, I must admit this was simply one of the "best" vacations we have ever had. I attribute this to the quality of the crew and the boat.
They make a special team and as a result of their hard work they turned a very good holiday into a great one.

Dolphin Splash is a beautifully designed boat. Air conditioning worked wonderfully. Dining area was fantastic. Front lounging area and top deck (sky lounge) were fantastic for taking in the views. The condition of the boat is flawless. The crew worked tirelessly in making sure it was immaculate.
I could write two pages on the Captain and crew. They are two of the nicest people Ive met in my life. In a matter of a couple of days, they felt like part of the our family. They were continually going above and beyond to suggest and provide anything and everything you would imagine. They were always smiling, , very witty, and had all kinds of ideas to make our trip a memorable one. Our kids adore both of them and did not want to leave Alan and Amy. I have to admit that I was surprised at their young age, when we arrived. It took no time at all to realize that they are both very capable of handling anything on that vessel. Their knowledge and skill were a joy to watch.
The meals were all fantastic. I have no idea how Amy was able to create all of those dishes in that kitchen. All of us ate things we never would have tried at home and absolutely loved them. Amy must have spent an inordinate amount of time planning all of the meals. She varied them tremendously, Alans grilling was stupendous, and the food was so good that we overate at very meal. It was as good as any fine restaurant in the world. She is no amateur.
Without a doubt, yes, we would charter this yacht again.
