Meet the Crew

Luke & Bethany Whitley

Luke Whitley: Captain

With over 20 years of experience on the water, Luke’s is a capable and confident captain whose primary focus is always the safety of his passengers and the vessel.

Luke grew up in Northern Michigan and started his career in the marine industry as the Assistant Harbormaster of a luxury marina. During his time on the water he focused his attention on sailing, his true passion, by restoring several boats and successfully competing in hundreds of regattas.

After receiving a degree in Information Technologies and spending eight years as an IT Analyst, Luke decided to leave his office job behind and pursue a career full time in the yachting industry.

Since he was young Luke has had an interest in mechanics. His experience in the IT realm further helped him develop the skills he needs to diagnose and handle complex mechanical, electronic and system issues.

Luke has a 50-ton Masters license with sailing and towing endorsements and has experience as a captain on boats up to 70 feet in length. He is an advanced SCUBA diver and plans to work to become a Dive Master by the end of the winter.

Luke is very systematic, adventurous and knowledgeable. He has a thirst for learning new skills and mastering new challenges, while simultaneously being cautious and prepared.

Luke is passionate about the outdoors and loves SCUBA, paddle boarding, and driving motorcycles. In the winter he is an avid snowboarder and enjoys ice boating. He grew up hunting, camping, and fishing with his family. He truly enjoys meeting new people and learning about different cultures. more

Bethany Whitley: Mate, Cook, Stew

Bethany also grew up in Northern Michigan and found her enthusiasm for boating when she met Luke in 2004. After spending several years learning the ropes, competing in regattas, and participating in restoration projects alongside Luke; Bethany was all in on making a lifestyle change and transitioning to boating full time.

Before working in the yachting industry Bethany had a successful career in Economic and Community Development. She worked with dozens of municipalities throughout Michigan to help improve the quality of life for their citizens. With a degree in Public Relations and Communications and a certificate in federal grant writing Bethany has a high degree of organizational skills which help to run each boating program she manages smoothly.

Bethany has her Merchant Mariner credentials, Standards of Training and Certified Watchkeeping certificates and is certified in SCUBA. She has a Level II Food Handlers Certificate and was formerly a trained open water lifeguard. In addition to crewing on yachts she also writes freelance sailing articles for Quantum Sailing.

Bethany has always enjoyed cooking. After managing a farmer’s market for several years, her style is influenced by fresh, local food prepared in a simple, yet elegant manner. She enjoys getting to know where the food comes from and the people who harvest it. The abundance of fresh ingredients offered in the Virgin Islands are a dream to work with and she looks forward to pleasing her guests with delicious seafood selections and specialty cocktails.

Bethany has a laid back and fun-loving, positive attitude. Her degree in Public Relations helps her remain sensitive to the needs of her guests. She understands how important vacation time is and will go above and beyond to help her guests have a wonderful experience aboard Pride. Whether it’s cooking a special meal or leading guests on a fun excursion she has the skills needed to ensure that you have a vacation to remember.

In her free time Bethany enjoys reading, and spending time outdoors hiking, snorkeling, and traveling to new places. She is a chocoholic and has a passion for animals and marine life.

PRIDE\'s New Years week, 2015/2016 guests said:
Todd, my husband, and I wanted to send a personal note too to let you know what an absolutely amazing time we had. While we knew the couples we were going with - my husband and I are used to staying in one spot for the week and just lounging (nice change from our fastpace life..). I took in each day with gratitude - the peace while sailing on the water was so good for me, the beautiful Islands we saw I documented each step of the way - I LOVED Cooper and Marina Cay - Anegada was a favorite although it took awhile to get there. (also - was it particularly windy last week or is it always like that in the Caribbean? I don't remember that on my previous visits!) The beds were so comfy - sheets too. The little details matter with me and I appreciated a good nights sleep. Kait did a wonderful job on our meals and now I'm craving one of her delicious mojitos!! I'm not sure the charter would have been as great without Jon and Kait - they were wonderful and your boat is just beautiful! I wish you the best in this new year.
All the Best,
Kristen and Todd
Guests aboard PRIDE in May, 2015 said:
Yes the week was wonderful! Our hosts were excellent and we really enjoyed the trip. I think if I were to do it again, I would probably book in a busier time when other young kids were around (can't believe I actually said that!), and I would have added more scuba diving as they really liked it. The weather and water were beautiful. Captain Bob and Sueno were such great hosts, food was excellent and Bob was very hospitable. You don't ever have to worry about your boat as I see they treat it as if it is theirs and with such care. Thanks Susan for all the help. I'm sorry I meant to email you as soon as we returned, but it got busy very quickly!

Dear Susan and Jack,
What a great time. Thanks so much. It was truly a wonderful vacation. I really appreciate all your hard work. I was so hesitant to go but it truly was far beyond my expectation. We both enjoyed ourselves so much. The knowledge of the area was amazing. Not to mention the food.
We have been on several trips to the Caribbean but nothing like this.
I would love to get your recipes if you get a chance.
Thanks again, See ya soon hopefully.
Christmas charter
Thank you for getting in touch with us and yes, we had a wonderful vacation and thank you for being such good skippers. You both made us feel very welcome from the start and the food was excellent (even Philip's tuna!!) and we found the whole trip very stimulating yet relaxing. However, it was all too short - still so much to see and we would love to go back sometime.

Hope Christmas and the New Year went well and that you have lots of charters for the coming season. We have spoken to a lot of people about you.

All the best,
What a Business Meeting
We had the best time we have ever had as a family and discovered business oportunities we hadn't had time to think about as partners. We can't say enough about how welcome and comfortable we felt aboard Pride. Jack is an inspiration having sailed around the world alone. The meals were fantastic. We came back one day from Diving and Susan had baked us an Apple pie knowing we would be hungry. The entire experience exceeded our expectations! B.T. Spring charter 2007
Yacht Pride customer review image
Great time we loved yacht Pride!
We loved Yacht Pride! What a great experience. We went to tranquil beaches as well as fun places for shopping and nightlife. What a great spring break. Best Crew and Thank you.
We had a very romantic time aboard Pride. Spending quality time aboard Yacht Pride just the two of us was great. Jack and Susan took great care to ensure our privacy, offer meals around our extremely relaxed non-schedule,and take great care of all the special details. It was truly so wonderful, we are inspired! We have made friends for life. We want to return again with the children.
April 2012
A family of 6 that booked aboard Pride for April 7 - 14, 2012 called with the following comments:

"It was a great trip...phenomenal! Everyone was happy and the kids had a blast. Jack and Susan were extremely flexible, particularly Susan who had to deal with our very unusual preferences and 4-6 different needs at each meal. Jack is an outstanding Captain, sailor and person. His standard of safety was really appreciated. Jack and Susan were fun to be around, easy to talk to, and we really appreciated when they snorkeled with us, pointing out the interesting things. I would definitely recommend them."
Dec. 27th 2010
A family of 6 that booked aboard Pride for New Years, December 27, 2010 - January 2, 2011 wrote with:

"We just returned last night from the charter and I wanted to tell you what a fantastic time we had aboard Pride. The boat was beautiful and well maintained and the crew kept everything in order all the way down to the way the sheets on the beds felt and smelled!! The food was amazing and you can imagine that trying to please 6 people isn't easy but every meal pleased every single one of us every time. The presentation, the flavors, the variety all without a single hitch. Unfortunately we all gained weight during the trip.

Jack and Susan were great to be around. Susan was always there for us and even with some sketchy weather and waves, all the newcomers to sailing (everyone except me) felt safe with Jack as the Captain. The fun stuff like snorkeling and kayaking was available whenever we wanted and Jack and Susan always had ideas about what would be fun and where we could visit and where we could anchor or moor. The crew was fun to be with and talk to and the kids enjoyed being with them as well. Leaving the boat was a little sad as we will miss them.

All in all we had a wonderful time and next time we sail it will be with Jack and Sue."

Thank you,
