Catamaran Aliwe Crew : Captain Sarel Oosthuizen & Chef/First Mate Dani Andrews

Catamaran Aliwe CrewSarel grew up on the coast of South Africa. After finishing school, he completed his RYA Yacht Masters Offshore Certification and began his life on the water sailing yachts from South Africa to New Zealand, the USA and elsewhere. Over the course of 3 years he completed 3 Indian ocean crossings, a Pacific and an Atlantic crossing.

Previously he ran term charters in the Grenadines. Cruising from Grenada north to St. Lucia. His wish has been to run term charters in the Virgin Islands where his goal is to share the enjoyment of a sailing experience in this beautiful landscape. He finally arrived in the Virgin Islands in July and ran a number of successful term charters at the end of the season.

As a captain his focus is the safety off all his guests, the crew, the environment and his vessel while offering an awesome, fun-loving experience.

Catamaran Aliwe CrewBorn and raised in Florida, Dani grew up with a tremendous love of the ocean and the outdoors which continues to bring her joy and a sense of comfort. From an early age she was curious and excited as her father would teach her the ways around a kitchen and then working in the hospitality industry while in college she learned the ins and outs of the restaurant world.

After obtaining her Associate in Arts from Valencia College she took her first adventure out to Hawaii to work on cruise ships where she got her first taste of life on the water. Living and working on the beautiful islands only deepened her passion for people and cooking abroad. Traveling and experiencing new cultures and cuisine has made her want to share that experience with others.

The following year she decided to trade the big ship life for something more fulfilling, where she could connect more with her guests and let her true passion of cooking come alive. After her first trip as chef aboard a sailing yacht in Portugal she knew she had found her perfect fit. She has spent the last 3 years working on sailing yachts in Portugal, Croatia, and the Virgin Islands which has allowed her to travel to over 20 different countries growing her knowledge of different cuisine and her love of sailing.

We Were Blown Away

This being our first BVI vacation, we had some pretty hgh expectations. Now that the week is over, I'm happy to say this far exceeded them in every way. The sites, the 5 star food, the snorkeling, the reverse bungee jumping, etc., were all amazing, but your warmth and hospitality took it to another level! We will miss seeing the beautiful "stars" at night particularly " Collin's belt". 🙂 I truly hope we can do this again with you. ~Brian

Like Brian said this was a trip like no other! No words to describe it! I loved waking up to all this beauty. Having the two of you as our crew made this trip unforgettable. I so enjoyed getting to know you! I look forward to seeing you again! Thank you again for ALL you did especially the attention to details. it was priceless! ~Christy

Words seem inadequate to express our gratitude to you both for making this a trip of a lifetime! This trip, by far, has been my favorite of the BVI's. From the fantastic food, the gracious and cheerful service, to the adventures we wold not have experienced had it not been for you, we are so thankful to enjoy this trip with you! We will always remember the memories made on this trip and certainly, hope our paths meet again.~Alyssa

So many memories but was so special because of your wonderful gift of hospitality. This was a great trip for me to relax and not having to worry about being the captain. We were tremendously blessed by both of you and are truly thankful for this trip.~Chris

What an unexpected delight it has been to sail the USVI and BVI with you! From the luxurious accommodations to the beautiful views, fantastic excursions, and fabulous gourmet meals, we were blown away. But most of all, you welcomed us on your boat and treated us like family, all while cheerfully checking in with us in order to make sure everyone is "happy"! You are certainly two of a kind, perfect for running this boat and create a week that will not compare in our lifetime. Thank you!~ Mark and Christin

Wonderful Hosts: Discreet But Also Available, Personable

You have been wonderful hosts. Discreet but also so available, personal. You made us feel at home.

The cooking was spectacular, your attention to details in the setup of the table is a tribute to your taste and sense of decoration. We have no doubt you will be a success.

Happy Sailing.

~Mary and Jean P.

You Made This Experience Magnificent!

The dream is real ! I feel like a new woman!

Thanks, Collin and Corinne, for making this experience magnificent. Thank you for your kindness, culinary skills and the perfect “Rojitos” by Captain Colin. To share our first trip in the BVI with you has been an honor. You are so kind and generous with your experience in this beautiful place.

We will come back to this paradise and for sure we will charter with you again.

~Valerie and Frederic

Fantastic and Memorable!

We cannot begin to thank you both enough for allowing us to experience the BVI in such a fantastic and memorable way.

Your work ethic is just impeccable, your personalities are so much fun to see on a daily basis, and your meals are definitely 5 star!

We loved all your port suggestions from Willy T’s (a classic for sure) to Soggy Dollar to Indians for snorkeling, Peter Island, Cooper Island, Saba Rock….each gave us a unique taste of the BVI’s.

We appreciate your flexibility in picking up other family members, too.- They enjoyed it as much as us!

So sad that our week here is ending, but we will never EVER forget you both. Thank you so much for all the love and laughter.

~Paula and Scott

One of Our Best Weeks Ever as a Family

We spent one of our best weeks ever as a family in the BVIs aboard Aliwe.

She is a 53 ft Sail cat built in South Africa. We have been on lots of boats, and chose her based on accommodations and the “newness “ of this boat along with the size and spaciousness of the galley and staterooms. We were not disappointed. The headroom was amazing, and the electric toilets and showers in each stateroom were great. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage girls, and each had their own room. We, the parents, had our own state room with a king sized bed where we slept with open hatches at night and could feel ocean breezes all night... loved it!

The crew were very gracious hosts, and most accommodating to our every needs. They were first to rise and last to bed every night, but made sure we were looked after during the trip. Our oldest daughter is Vegan, and the chef made sure she had what she wanted every meal, along with honoring the rest of the family’s request for more traditional meals. We had our choice for a menu (both food /snacks/and bar) and all was aboard exactly as we requested (even the Moet and Chandon Champagne). We were greeted on arrival with wonderful snacks and champagne. Our favorite part of the day was the afternoon when the chef appeared with a yummy tray of snacks and her question of our afternoon drink of choice.

The captain took us to all the highlights of the BVIs, but was open to any requests we had and would sit with us in the galley and go over the charts of the BVIs and let us pick any destination that looked good, total adventure!

We snorkeled, paddle boarded, kayaked, swam, or went sightseeing everyday, basically whatever we wanted to do. The crew were very professional, yet at the same time, became like family and interacted with us on a very personal level when they were not otherwise doing their jobs as Captain and first mate.

After trips, we typically talk among ourselves and decide whether we would go again. We all said we were ready to go back the very next day!

~The Miles Family South Carolina

You Outdid Yourselves and Surpassed Our Expectations

"One last day in paradise - so many words I would like to put down on this page but I would run out of room. Such a great experience. I feel that I now have true friends in the islands. This was a WOW trip. You two are the BOMB! Cant' wait for our next trip together. Happy sailing, with our love"

~Sybil M and Jeff K

"I can't believe our trip has come to an end! What a most amazing and wonderful trip! This is by far the most relaxing vacation. The timing to all the favorite spots was amazing. I can't say enough about all the delicious meals, beautiful table-scapes, wonderful appetizers and all.

We were completely spoiled and loved every minute of it. We can't wait to come back - this is a definite 'do again'. From scuba, scooters, high jumping, beautiful secluded beaches, hot spots, turtles, we did it all! Thank you so much for your perfect personalities and hosts. You are both great people. Please keep in touch!"

~Joe and Bethany O

"Such an amazing experience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the hospitality was perfect. The planning of food/menu and adventures was much appreciated.

We enjoyed ALL the places you took us to. I was happy to get out of my comfort zone too! Jumping off Willy T's, snorkeling and so much more. You out did yourselves and surpassed our expectations."

~Pat and Michele F

Guest Comments Aliwe

" Thank you so much for making our trip a wonderful, memorable adventure. Both of you took such great care of us during the week that we were able to completely relax and de-stress. That is something we haven't been able to do in a very long time! We want to join you on the boat again sometime and hopefully on a safari too."
Matt and Jennifer Scarsella

"Thank you for an amazing experience! our first trip to the BVI surpassed our expectations thanks to your gracious hospitality. The food was delicious and we felt very pampered. You have spoiled us for any other type of vacation! We came as strangers but left as friends. If you ever find yourselves in Michigan, please call us."
