Meet the Crew

Tyler & Kelsey

Captain: Tyler Dunn

Tyler’s southern charm and hospitality will make you feel right at home as soon as you step aboard White House. An athlete, his aquatic adventures began at camp Merrie-Woode, where he grew up kayaking and rafting the many lakes and white-water rivers that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. At the age of 10, Tyler became scuba certified. He played varsity college lacrosse, and graduated with a degree in Outdoor Experiential Education from Appalachian State University. After college, he pursed his dream to live on the ocean by moving to Key Largo, FL, where he began his professional diving career. He not only became an accomplished scuba dive instructor but also a master captain with a 50- ton license. The charter industry allows Tyler to share what he is passionate about on a daily basis with families and friends like yours. While on charter, Tyler will impart his knowledge of sailing, diving and cooking. His interests only begin on the water, as he is amazing in the galley. You will hear him whistling away while he cooks up a scrumptious dish for everyone to enjoy after a day in the sun and water.

Captain: Kelsey Dunn

Kelsey is a caring person with a fun-loving, positive spirit. In college, she played on the Queens University Division One Women’s Hockey Team in Ontario, Canada. She graduated with honors, with a BS in Environmental Science. While obtaining her degree, she had the opportunity to dive with sharks in the Bahamas, and she has been hooked on diving ever since. Kelsey’s dive experience ranges from Lake Ontario to the Florida Keys, where she relocated after graduation, to the Caribbean. She is an accomplished scuba dive instructor and loves to share her knowledge of diving and marine life with others. Her skills below water only rival her skills above water. Kelsey is a master captain with a 100-ton license. She has sailed on Lake Champlain, up and down the east coast of the Atlantic, as well as throughout the Virgin Islands. Her expertise and knowledge of sailing will put you at ease while she is at the helm...read more

Tyler and Kelsey have a shared history and passion for life and this has bound them together for over six years. They have recently been married and are excited to share with you their passion for cooking, sailing and diving in the beautiful Caribbean islands.

Two captains, two master divers, two chefs equals twice the fun!

This was a Double Thumbs Up experience. 5 Stars!
My week on Playtime exceeded any expectations I had. The crew were professional, friendly, extremely helpful and pleasant to be around. The cooking was A+. Any special dietary needs were worked with care and consideration. We had vegetarian and non-vegetarian and some gluten free eating . The boat comfortably slept 9 men and the crew! Sailing was a joy. The crew were also well experienced in the islands and were able to lead us to exquisite diving and snorkel spots. They were also superb diving instructors for first time divers like myself. On day four of our trip some of us swam out to a mother and baby dolphin that were passing by. The dolphins swam near us and circled around us for about 15 minutes. It was a definite highlight. The crew also had rapport with customs which made dealing with passports much easier and more efficient. It was an amazing week! My friends and I were taken great of by an experienced, kind, fun, and thoughtful crew! This was a Double Thumbs Up experience. 5 Stars!
Each day was checking out a new beautiful and quaint island. Each meal was incredible, not just decent.
Once we left harbor I realized the next 6 days would be a postcard in every direction. I like to be active and between scuba diving, wake-boarding, stand up paddle boarding, and kayaking I had plenty to do. Each day was checking out a new beautiful and quaint island. Each meal was incredible, not just decent. It was a great bonus to have WiFi and be able to FaceTime with my wife and kids. A week that sadly flew by...
The crew (Kelsey and Tyler) seemed to anticipate and meet every need I could have, and the food kept getting more and more scrumptious as the trip continued!
“The cabins and decks on Playtime were surprisingly spacious, and the amenities were topnotch. I loved having the hand showers on the swim steps to wash the salt off. Having the two stand-up paddleboards, kayak and Zodiac gave a lot of different avenues for fun. The crew (Kelsey and Tyler) seemed to anticipate and meet every need I could have, and the food kept getting more and more scrumptious as the trip continued! And it is an indescribably impressive feeling to watch the huge sails get hoisted up, and then feel the gentle power of the wind grab hold of them and power the boat through the water, while you sit on the captain’s deck with your drink feeling the wind and taking in the islands. A once-in-a-lifetime experience!”

Thanks for your help
Every day something special and delicious.
Tyler and Kelsey,

On behalf of us all I would like to thank you both for the wonderful vacation experience. While we were last minute guests you made us feel special, especially the grandkids. G & T flowing like the Nile was wonderful but I have to admit the rum shots weren't too shabby. You both earned your camp counselor gold stars for dealing with Jonah and Amelia and me. Watching Jonah think he was steering while the boat was on autopilot was hilarious. Message in a bottle was another touching moment. Culinary skills also gets an A+. The food was amazing. Every day something special and delicious. Popcorn throwing can become another evening game. FIshing hats out of the ocean can be a day game.

While the surf was a little rough at the beach we discovered a new olympic sport--tushy surfing. And the ladies got exfoliations courtesy of blowing sand.

Tubing was a pain in my arms but otherwise fun. I know the grandkids loved it by their screams.

Snorkeling was fun for all once the grandkids figured it out and got off Deborah and Josh's backs.

Diving good for Josh since he got certified and had some better underwater scenes. The wind churned up the water a little but that's mother nature for you. At least I got under and didn't get lost. Following Alan's day glow yellow fins helped.

Thanks again.
They did their utmost to make the trip memorable and succeeded.
The trip was amazing. We all had boat loads-ha ha- of fun. The grandkids loved Tyler and Kelsey as did we all.. They did their utmost to make the trip memorable and succeeded. The boat was amazing. We can't thank you enough for your last minute pull the catamaran out of the hat trick. Josh managed to get dive certified. Alan did his diving. Liz and I did a recreational dive. Honestly, the diving was not spectacular because of the wind. The water was very cloudy, but we did our best to find fish and other interesting fishy stuff. They took us to places we remembered from our past trips and some we had not been to. It was a little tricky for them to plan Josh and Alan's dive time and have the rest of us be doing things as well. Going from Island to Island was very bumpy with high waves and wind. A couple of days were more clouds than sun and some rain. All in all it was wonderful. The crew, the boat, the food- everything. Evenings after the kids went to bed when we weren't too tired ourselves, were chock full of games and drinks. Taboo, Pass the pigs, and a dice game Tyler taught us brought on the laughs. Watching Jonah think he was steering the boat when it was on autopilot was hilarious. They had the grandkids write notes and put them in wine bottles and throw them overboard. We have videos and pictures to document our Island jaunts, including conch blowing with "The Pirate".

All of our thanks,

The Jordan and Goldin Crew
Thank you so much for the "Bucket List" trip. We will be doing this again!
We just returned from a 7 day cruise. If i could give more than 5 stars to the crew, food, boat and the experience in general, I would. With the hurricane recovery, we were hesitant to take the trip we booked in August. I had even considered cancelling. Boy was I wrong. There are definite signs of hurricane damage, but the beauty of the water and islands is still breathtaking. I took my 80 year old Mom, my 2 adult children and a husband that swore he would never get on a cruise ship. We all could not stop talking about how wonderful and perfect the trip was! Kelsey and Tyler were so great and became like part of the family!
Thank you so much for the "Bucket List" trip. We will be doing this again!
Our best vacation ever, by far
The boat was wonderful and very comfortable. Kelsey and Tyler could
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.
Monty B.

Reviews for Tyler & Kelsey aboard previous yachts:

Couldn't imagine two better hosts - Tyler & Kelsey were extremely accommodating on all fronts, made us feel welcome and at home and helped us to make the most of the time we had aboard.

Each meal was better than the last and, they were extremely accommodating to account for everyone's tastes and preferences. The yacht is very clean and comfortable.

We will recommend Sailing Directions for sure.

Andy M, aboard Catamaran White House sailing the Virgin Islands

Best trip ever! Tyler and Kelsey were excellent. The food was incredible from start to finish. Both Tyler and Kelsey are fantastic chefs. Wouldn't change a thing. We enjoyed the room to spread out and enough privacy to get away.
