Meet the Crew

Crew photo
Ian & Michelle

Captain Dan Szymczak has been enamored of the sea since his grandfather, a fisherman and clammer, first showed him a chart of Long Island Sound. Dan spent his youth in southern Connecticut on both fresh and saltwater kayaking, sailing, and fishing. His love of water sports, craft cocktails, and trivia will help make your vacation unparalleled.

While teaching English literature and public speaking at several colleges in New York City, Dan couldn’t help but feel the desire to be on the water, and this led to his career in yachting, working on a schooner in Manhattan. He then transitioned into eco-tourism, where he wowed guests by driving them to see cracking glaciers and breeching whales in Southeast Alaska and mega pods with thousands of dolphins in the Baja peninsula. He’s also an accomplished expedition leader, leading hikes to spot local wildlife, and he has extensive knowledge of both birds and sea life alike.

She enjoys activities and adventures that allow her to connect with nature, wildlife, and each other: scuba, snorkel, free diving, SUP, kayaking, and yoga, even hiking, biking, and jogging while ashore...read more

Having lived and traveled all over the world, Vanessa is inspired by Earth’s abundant flavor pallet that she experiences through many cuisines and cultures. She is passionate about supporting local farmers and finding the freshest, most nutritious ingredients for flavorful meal combinations that keep guests nourished and energized.

She spent her corporate career improving operational and relational processes to create a more sustainable, compassionate future.

Reviews for Excess with previous crew:

Our charter trip on Excess with Ben & Michelle was amazing. I don't think I could have made a better choice on a catamaran selection! The boat was spotless and well ventilated and air conditioned. From the moment we stepped on Excess to the time we left, Ben & Michelle were awesome.

We called Ben the "Indiana Jones" of the ocean! He was up for anything from taking us snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking and exploring to finding a beautiful, quiet cove to just kick back and relax, swim and read. My son caught live lobster on his dives with Ben and he prepared them fresh on the boat for us!

Michelle's cooking was exemplary. Fresh, beautifully presented and healthy!

Ben & Michelle are such easy going, fun and down to earth people which made it so easy for our family to settle right in and relax. They made it fun and adventurous for our 4 children ages 16-23.

Excess is a beautiful catamaran with a spacious master suite and plenty of room for our family of 6 to spread out and enjoy some alone time.

The quality family time that we experienced was the best part of our week. Hands down, our best family vacation ever with the most beautiful catamaran and the greatest crew in the Caribbean!
