Meet the Crew

Mark & Rachel

Mark’s friendly and humorous nature will make you feel right at home when stepping aboard Amazing Grace. As a young, aquatic enthusiast, his adventures began in a fishing village off the coastline of South Africa in a small home surrounded by a variety of cultures. Mark spent every waking moment either fishing or freediving for fresh seafood with a group of young Xhosa (native African) boys.

When he was just a teenager, Mark was awarded a sailing scholarship from Offshore Sailing Academy to obtain his Captain’s license. Going forward was pure bliss and he has had many excursions working as a Captain, Fishing Guide, and Dive Master in the most remote Islands around the world.

After crossing the Indian and the Atlantic Ocean on Amazing Grace, Mark settled in the Virgin Islands to run unique luxury charters. Luck would have it that after only a few months in the Caribbean islands, Mark met Halle who was on vacation in the British Virgin Islands. Now after multiple visits, Halle has put into action her desire to work in partner with Mark and share with others these experiences that made her fall in love with the islands.

Halle is a caring person with a fun-loving and hospitable spirit having grown up in North Carolina. A competitive swimmer from a young age, Halle had always shared a passion for the water. Even though she is from a small town in the foothills of the Carolinas, Halle infuses her Southern roots with her experience of European cuisine. You will enjoy a balance of hearty and healthy meals in a family atmosphere that Mark and Halle naturally create.

Amazing Grace was....AMAZING!
We returned last week from an incredible week long experience with Captain Mark and First Mate Halle on Amazing Grace. We were four couples - none with previous charter experience - and we were not totally sure what to expect. We quickly learned that key to a successful trip is the crew that will be guiding your vacation. We feel so fortunate to have had Mark and Halle as our capable crew. From the moment we met Mark and Halle they were the perfect hosts and treated us like royalty. They were constantly on the move - whether preparing gourmet meals (the shrimp green curry and muscle soup were two of my favorites!), helping to organize a snorkel or beach adventure, or accompanying us on a trip to a local beach bar - they did everything possible to make ours a vacation of a lifetime. I will always have vivid memories of Mark coming up with a lobster to cook up, the gorgeous waters, the inviting white sand beaches, the quiet and beauty of sailing such a stunning vessel, the group rides (and laughs!) in the dingy, Halle’s Southern charm, and the great times we had just hanging out with our friends on our boat. By the end of the trip guests and crew became more like family and we hope that Mark and Halle take us up on our offer to visit us in Texas! I highly recommend that if you are looking for a USVI or BVI charter that you look into a charter on Amazing Grace.
Awesome Crew!
My family of 6 (youngest 17) just completed a 9 day charter on the Amazing Grace. Mark and Halle were our awesome crew. We were treated to multiple islands, incredible food and tons of sunshine! We caught lobster and enjoyed it in several meals. We used the scuba gear and dove the Rhone and 2 other sites. I can't imagine a better trip. We will definitely charter again in the future.
Mark and Halle Enhanced the Trip
We just got back from our charter on Amazing Grace to the BVI's. I wanted to let you know that the entire trip was wonderful.

Starting with your staff getting us prepared and ready for the trip and the crew, Mark and Halle were simply fantastic. The boat, Amazing Grace, was perfect for us.

We were taken care of from start to finish. Mark had the entire trip/meals mapped out.
The stops we made each day were awesome. The food was lovely. Mark even caught some Lobsters for us. Just amazing stuff. I can’t say enough about how much Mark and Halle enhanced the trip for us.

We will all be back in the near future, for sure.
Mark and Rachel Made the Trip!
One year ago I began planning a 40th Birthday trip for my husband and friends to sail the BVI's. Derek and his team were absolutely amazing to work with and extremely accommodating considering our original sail date fell the same week that Irma visited the islands. We were able to find another date and just returned from the most amazing vacation we have ever had. Captain Mark and First Mate and Super Chef Rachel are now part of our family, whether they want to be or not.....from the planning of the trip to the bitter end when we had to leave, they made sure we drank when we were thirsty, slept when we wanted to sleep and played when we wanted to play. From fire dancing, to fresh caught lobster, getting to be a mermaid and visiting the most beautiful places, we can't give our trip enough stars! Take this trip, visit the Virgin Islands..We are already planning our next trip!
Thanks Derek, Mark & Rachel for a trip we will never forget and hope to soon repeat!
