He loves being on the ocean and enjoying the outdoors. Phil has a broad and in depth knowledge of the Caribbean from Antigua to Grenada; and has even completed an Atlantic crossing - an experience and adventure he will never forget!

He looks forward to sharing his passion with guests and taking them around the beautiful Virgin Islands. His favourite part of the day is entertaining guests with craft cocktails and tales of adventures while the sun more

Reviews for Kelea with previous crew:

We had such a wonderful time and talk about it every day. A week packed with so many family memories. We loved the Kelea and we especially LOVED Alli and Dan.

Alli and Dan were THE best. So warm and personable, it was hard to say good-bye at the end of the week. They were always asking how we were doing and so accommodating with a variety of different requests, we kept them VERY busy!

Aboard Kelea we never felt like we were on top of each other. There were places all 8 of us could sit and visit, the trampoline, pads on top and of course the dinner tables. But we could also go off and find quiet spots to read, pray and enjoy the beauty of the scenery if we wanted to.

The food was AMAZING! Alli blew us all away with how delicious her food was, the variety was perfect and the presentation so pretty that I and my son-in-law took pictures of all the meals!

Every spot we anchored has its own unique characteristic. Dan did a great job bringing us to beautiful diving spots. Rhett and I dove 2 days and the rest of our 4 boys and son-in-law dove all 5 days. It was a great mix of diving locations, the Baths to explore, calm bays to pull the water toys behind the dingy and fun beach bar stops.

It was a trip of a lifetime. What I loved about this sailing trip at this stage of our life is that it was SO RELAXING! We are spread throughout the country now so I loved being together everyday, all day, doing so many memorable things, sitting and gazing at the scenery during a sail, visiting, playing games, eating delicious food that I didn't have to shop for, cook or clean up after, water fun, island fun etc.

Rhett H, aboard Catamaran Kelea June 2019  sailing the British Virgin Islands

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!
