Meet Your Crew! Captain Mark and Chef/First Mate Halle
Captain Mark and Chef Halle look forward to welcoming you aboard for a fun-filled week of diving, fishing, snorkeling, gourmet dining and relaxing in the most beautiful place on earth: the US and British Virgin Islands. Mark and Halle will take you beyond the ordinary Caribbean sailing vacation!
Mark’s friendly and humorous nature will make you feel right at home when stepping aboard Amazing Grace. As a young, aquatic enthusiast, his adventures began in a fishing village off the coastline of South Africa in a small home surrounded by a variety of cultures. Mark spent every waking moment either fishing or freediving for fresh seafood with a group of young Xhosa (native African) boys.
When he was just a teenager, Mark was awarded a sailing scholarship from Offshore Sailing Academy to obtain his Captain’s license. Going forward was pure bliss and he has had many excursions working as a Captain, Fishing Guide, and Dive Master in the most remote Islands around the world.
After crossing the Indian and the Atlantic Ocean on Amazing Grace, Mark settled in the Virgin Islands to run unique luxury charters. Luck would have it that after only a few months in the Caribbean islands, Mark met Halle who was on vacation in the British Virgin Islands. Now after multiple visits, Halle has put into action her desire to work in partner with Mark and share with others these experiences that made her fall in love with the islands.
Halle is a caring person with a fun-loving and hospitable spirit having grown up in North Carolina. A competitive swimmer from a young age, Halle had always shared a passion for the water. Even though she is from a small town in the foothills of the Carolinas, Halle infuses her Southern roots with her experience of European cuisine. You will enjoy a balance of hearty and healthy meals in a family atmosphere that Mark and Halle naturally create.
Wow! That’ll feed us all, Capt. Mark!
