Hi. My name is Matt. I hope I'll have a chance to meet you soon, but first let me tell you a bit about myself.
I grew up boating, waterskiing and fishing on the Mississippi River in northwestern Illinois. My father was a US Naval officer and he taught me to love and respect the water at an early age. I also inherited my love of travel from him.
I first visited the Caribbean in 1989 and I knew from that moment that the islands were very special. In the following years, while working as a diesel engine designer, I found myself spending all of my money on travel. So, I switched gears and worked in travel and tourism for the next decade. During that time I realized that I enjoyed sharing the travel experience as much as the travel itself.
In 2005 I took a charter vacation on a yacht in the BVI, and that was all it took. I instantly knew that I wanted to share the beauty of the Caribbean with a many people as possible. One year later I moved to the islands to start a career as a charter yacht captain.
After 8 years in the Virgin Islands, my wife Melissa and I went north to Fort Lauderdale to work on large motor yachts allowing us to explore Turks & Caicos, the Bahamas, and the Eastern Seaboard. During that time, I found that the Virgin Islands were calling me home. I returned in January of 2016 and am very excited to host you aboard Two if by Sea in this upcoming charter season. After sailing and motoring the Caribbean on a number of different vessels, I am convinced that the Leopard 4500 is the best charter vessel and the Virgin Islands is greatest place for your charter vacation.
I currently hold a USCG 200-ton Master License, and am a PADI certified Divemaster. In my spare time I enjoy diving, wakeboarding, snorkeling and hiking the trails in the BVI. I also love playing bartender and tour-guide to those looking for a little adventure.
Come sail with me and let me show you the Caribbean I fell in love with.See reviews

I wanted to take some time to thank you again for the great trip we had a couple of weeks ago. It was by far the best vacation I have ever been on and I think everyone in our group feels the same way.
Your hospitality was greatly appreciated. You both did an excellent job handling our crazy group. Every meal you prepared was excellent. Every place you took us was a great time. Everybody in our group enjoyed spending time with you. I cant wait to do it again. A trip in BVI with you guys makes coming back to the real world seem like a bad idea.
You are welcome to use this as a testimonial if you would like to. I would also be happy to let your bosses or brokers know how much we enjoyed the trip. Just forward me some contact info. if you would like me to do that. Thanks again! I hope that we can go on a trip with you again someday.
I want to take a few short moments to convey my utter respect for whoever
hired Tyler and Kelsey to captain TIBS.
Finding talent is hard and they are quite a find. Young and responsible
Captains, Chefs and Dive Instructors. A true trifecta.
Our family just returned from what can only be described as the trip of our
lifetime. Tyler and Kelsey exceeded all expectations.
From diving, to dining, to dingying we had a blast. We were treated with
friendly hospitality, professional courtesy, mechanical mastery, safety,
stewardship and local lore.
I would recommend them to any of my friends gladly, and will.
Please take a few moments to congratulate them on the excellent service and
most-worthy seamanship they brought during our TIBS journey.
Thanks and Best Regards,
Fran and John Sadler
not have been better. About 91 on a scale of 1-10. They were very
competent handling the boat. The meals were great, well presented and
more than enough.
The diving was great. They are great instructors. The itinerary was
perfect. Our best vacation ever, by far.
We cannot rave enough about how amazing our vacation was!
Tyler and Kelsey were amazing! They were incredibly knowledgeable about the islands and were always willing to teach us about where we were. Tyler was an amazing dive master and helped us complete our open water certification. We always felt 100% safe with him and he was very patient and professional.
Kelsey was an incredible tour guide especially at the Baths where she took us into nooks and crannies we never would have found on our own. She was also a great photographer and took so many amazing pictures of our group. They were always attentive to our needs and we never had a need or a want left unmet.
The boat was perfect. We had concerns that it would not be big enough for our group of 5 before we left however we couldn't have been more wrong. The cabins were totally adequate and the commons areas were plenty big enough. The air conditioning in the cabins are night worked wonderfully. Our favorite aspects of the boat were the fresh water spigot on the back of the boat, the bean bags and chairs on the front of the boat and the video screen to watch movies or play video games on at night.
The food was absolutely incredible. We had previously wanted to dine ashore one night but after eating the amazing food we changed our minds and decided we would rather eat on board. Every meal was impeccably presented and tasted like gourmet restaurant quality. Every dessert was better than the night before. The menu was customized to our preferences and everyone was beyond satisfied at every meal even though we have different dietary preferences. Our food and alcohol preferences were met to complete satisfaction.
We loved the itinerary we sailed. We told Tyler and Kelsey the first day the few places that were a must to visit and then we told them to take us to their favorite spots, we were not disappointed. They showed us so many beautiful places and took us to amazing diving and snorkeling spots.
Sailing directions was always fast to respond to emails and they helped to recommend this boat for our group and we were not disappointed. We would defiantly use Sailing Directions again, John did an amazing job for us this time and I'm sure he would again!
We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our vacation. Sailing in the Virgin Islands is such an incredible and amazingly beautiful experience, doing it on a catamaran with Tyler and Kelsey as the crew makes it a world class vacation. There is nothing better than rolling over in bed in the morning to look out your porthole at the gorgeous turquoise waters then going to eat a deliciously prepared breakfast and spend the day exploring the islands!
