Dennis & Stephanie Tonge
***2018 CREW ***
Captain Dennis Tonge and Chef/First Mate Stephanie Tonge
Captain Dennis has been drawn to the water and nature as long as he can remember. As the only boy with four sisters, his favorite childhood memories were the times they spent boating, sailing, fishing, and camping. He then raised two boys and a girl enjoying much of the same in the great out doors. When he wasn’t tending to business he could most likely be found on one of his boats or under the water in diving gear. P.A.D.I. Dive Master Dennis has over 3500 dives under his belt! You can certainly say he loves the sport and sharing the magic below the sea! With the family grown and the ocean calling, Dennis and Stephanie liquidated their land based treasures and headed for the Caribbean. They have since logged over 5000 miles sailing the Caribbean and Atlantic ocean.
While Dennis is a serious captain, his spirit is enormously playful. His sense of humor and friendly demeanor will make you feel like you’ve made a friend in an instant. This Master Captain has also earned his title of Grill Master and Chief omelet aficionado! Join Captain “D” as he shares those secret harbors of the Virgins on your next dream vacation!
Stephanie fell in love with sailing the Virgin Islands when her parents chartered a sailboat in the B.V.I.s at age 12. in her words, “It never quits being magical” immediately after college she was hired by a cruise line as staff in the Purser’s office. Consecutive one-week cruises for a straight 8 months didn’t put a damper on her enthusiasm for the industry, she moved into marketing and even spent 2 years using her industry knowledge for the production of a travel T.V. series, Tourific Destinations on the Discovery channel. Years later when Dennis suggested he wouldn’t mind giving up a land based home for sailing, she was “All In! ”..read more
Travel and sailing combined with Stephanies talents in the culinary arts have been a dream come true! Her attention to detail in the galley is unparalleled. On board guests quickly nicknamed her “Saucy Stephanie” as she has an uncanny ability to combine flavors to please the palette! She also has a wide variety of gluten free, pescatarian and vegetarian delights!
Captain D and Stephanie love to share their enthusiasm for the places and people of the Virgin Islands, and they look forward to introducing their guests to this beautiful part of the world while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

We had a wonderful time during our Virgin Islands cruise on R S Cape. David and Janice Walters were perfect hosts and did everything possible to make the trip enjoyable. David went above and beyond expectations by accompanying us on 3 hikes in the Virgin Island "mountains". Janice is wonderful company and a great Chef. We hope to connect with them again.

Scott and Renee were fabulous! Very friendly, very knowledgeable about the area and all the locations we visited. They attended to every need and anticipated our wants/needs. They planned out the perfect itinerary and made great suggestions for excursions/restaurants/bars, etc.
The boat was beautiful - very well maintained and clean. We loved the top deck area - we spent a lot of time up there.
The food was fantastic and beautifully presented. Truly a real chef experience. Renee went out of her way to ensure we all had what we liked and paid attention to our particular likes/dislikes. We did not have one bad meal. It was all fresh, tasty and almost too pretty to eat.
The itinerary was perfect! Just the right mix of action and relaxation and great snorkeling spots.
We were very happy with the service that we received from Sailing Directions.
