Douglas & Carolyn
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!

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.
