Meet the crew of KARIZMA, skipper Hylton and first mate/chef Amy.
After spending just a few minutes with Hylton and Amy you will pick up on their passion for the ocean. Growing up on the East Coast of South Africa meant their childhoods were both full of outdoor adventures, with family and friends, along the coastline. Hylton and Amy have just come from the South Pacific where they have spent the last 3 years running Whale Swimming, SCUBA diving, Line Fishing and Spearfishing charters for resorts and companies in Tonga.
Living in the remote islands has taught them a lot about enjoying and appreciating the simple things in life. Their stress-free lifestyle is contagious and something we all deserve to experience, especially on a Caribbean vacation. They are most happy when they have the opportunity to share these beautiful waters with their guests and they go to great depths to unveil treasures that many others would never see.
Amy studied Marine Biology in South Africa and went on to do her honors. She is very confident in the water and will always be willing to take guests out for a snorkel to find some interesting creatures or critters to observe. She loves to share any knowledge to inquisitive minds, no matter how young or old. Her patience and bubbly personality make her an instant hit, especially with children.
Hylton has covered a few passages in his sailing career and hopes to own a yacht one day. He loves spearfishing and free-diving and would be willing to give anyone interested some tips on free-diving. His charisma and enthusiasm make him a perfect fit on this yacht and will surely make all on board feel at home.
Amy and Hylton both enjoy spending time in the kitchen. They have picked up recipes from the South Pacific and South Africa that they will share with you during your stay.
The crew cannot wait to have you on board. There will be many stories told and laughs had, but most of all they cannot wait to share our beautiful oceans with you.
