Meet the Crew

Captain Dan’s passion for the water started at an early age along the coast of Delaware. He developed his skills after moving to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, where he learned to read the wind and the water for both surfing and sailing. He obtained his Captain’s license in North Carolina, and quickly began guiding on the water and sharing his love of nature and the sea.

Dan worked on Bald Head Island, North Carolina helping in the development of an outdoor adventure company. He obtained his US Sailing Association Certification and American Sailing Association Certification, and began instructing others on sailing. During which and since, he has owned several personal sailboats and captained others, allowing him to learn and hone in his skill as a Captain.

Alli was born on the East Coast where as a young girl she grew up with a passion for the ocean and adventure passed to her by her father. In High School, Alli participated in multiple Outward Bound wilderness classes, and from there the adventure never stopped. She attended the University of North Carolina Wilmington, during which time she began working for the same sailing and kayaking company where she met her husband, Dan...read more

Alli has grown up with a passion for cooking food, that not only tastes good and looks good, but that is good for you. She began cooking at a young age, preparing meals for her family of five, and continues to create beautiful dishes with love and artistry.

Dan and Alli met in the Summer of 2009 on Bald Head Island, North Carolina, where they worked running kayak trips and sailing excursions. Together they managed the company, never losing sight of their passion for travel. From the North Shore of Hawaii, to the coastlines of Costa Rica, the couple began their adventures together starting that summer. After sailing their personal sailboat, Goose, over 2,500 miles from North Carolina to the Bahamas and back they discovered their love for the islands.

They moved to the Virgin Islands to pursue their love for the sea and sailing, where they began working for a popular watersports company. Dan captained a 50ft catamaran, running day charters around the BVIs and USVIs, and Alli managed the hotel’s land and sea based watersports activities, meanwhile obtaining her certifications to crew. They continued to get out on the water to snorkel, surf, fish etc. whenever the opportunity allowed. Whether searching for lobsters, searching for waves, or simply sailing, they always enjoy their time spent on the water.

One of their favorite quotes is, “The Virgin Islands were meant to be viewed from the water.” Pentesilea II has allowed them to share their love for the islands, the sea, and all the two have to offer, with all of her guests.

Reviews for Kelea with Dan & Alli Shivone:

We found Alli and Dan to be amazing! They were extremely knowledgeable and very attentive.

Kelea was clean, comfortable and well ventilated. My favorite aspect of the yacht was the bean bag chairs. As a group our favorite spot was sitting up top during the sails.

The chef made and presented the most amazing dishes. She used our preference sheet as a guide. She took great pride in her work and every meal was delicious!

The itinerary was perfect and every place we sailed was well worth seeing.

Sailing Directions provided a great service. They made it simple and easy to navigate through the process. We have had many people ask about our trip so we keep recommending your company.

Kristie R, aboard Catamaran Kelea May 2019  sailing the Virgin Islands

Dan and Alli could not have been friendlier or more attentive. Very concerned with what we wanted the experience to be and very flexible with us when we changed our minds mid-stream.

Kelea was clean and comfortable with lots of space up top to enjoy the sailing.

Alli is truly an amazing cook. Felt like we were dining out at every meal. We had two pescatarians with us and Alli accommodated them at every meal.

Dan and Alli put together a great itinerary and accommodated our desire for additional activities like hiking seamlessly.

Sailing Directions was a pleasure to deal with, I appreciate all your help.

I can’t say enough about how welcoming Alli and Dan were and how much we enjoyed spending the week with them.

Jim J, aboard Catamaran Kelea April 2019  sailing the Virgin Islands

Dan & Alli were exceptional! We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this vacation. We could not ask for a better crew.

Kelea was so spacious and clean at all times. If you could clone Alli and Dan every charter would be filled at all times. They are truly a gem!

The food was Spectacular! Alli is so talented. Every meal was well presented. We were treated like Kings and Queens! I want to take Alli home.

Dan was so knowledgeable about every area we travelled and gave us a lot of history about each island we visited.

No improvements needed at all! It was a trip of a lifetime! We will be back on Kelea soon! I will highly recommend to all friends and family!
