CAPTAIN TYLER & CHEF/MATE KELSEY DUNN
Tyler and Kelsey will make you feel welcome the minute you step on board the yacht. They even have a pet fish on board named “Bubble O7”. They are an experienced crew who have worked together on yachts, which has bound them together. They both have a passion for cooking, sailing and diving in the gorgeous Caribbean.
Captain Tyler is from North Carolina, where he grew up kayaking and rafting along the lakes and rivers. His love for water came early in life, even becoming SCUBA certified at age 10! He graduated from college with a degree in Outdoor Experiential Education from Appalachian State University. After college he pursued his dream to live on the ocean by moving to Key Largo, Florida. It is there he began a professional diving career along with his master captain 50 ton license. In addition to his Captain duties, he loves to cook as is known to come into the galley and whip up an amazing Southern style dish for everyone to enjoy after a day in the sun and water.
Captain/mate Kelsey is a fun loving person with a positive spirit. She is from Canada and in college played on the women’s Division 1 hockey team. While in college, where she graduated with honors with a degree in Environment Science, she dove with the sharks on a trip to the Bahamas. At that point she was “hooked” on diving. She moved to the Florida Keys after college and then to the Caribbean. Kelsey is also a master captain with a 100 ton license. She has sailed from Canada, down the East Coast of the USA to the Caribbean.

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!
In one word, our experience was fabulous. The crew fulfilled all our expectations, they were friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and most of all, created just the right atmosphere for a wonderful vacation. Playtime was in tip top shape, clean and spacious, just the right size for three couples. If you remember, I was contemplating asking another couple to join us but you hinted that it would be best for three couples, and I am glad you did. The food was great, thanks to the chef for exceptional culinary skills. Every meal was tasteful, beautifully presented, and just the right amount. As far as the itinerary, we told the crew what we were interested in (mostly snorkeling, diving, sailing and just relaxing) and they guided us to right spots. All of us felt that we will have to get back.
The boat was AMAZING! My wife shed real tears when we got off the boat and sail goodbye to the crew. We had the perfect week on the boat. We were so impressed with every aspect of the crew. Great captains, cooks, hosts, tour guides, dive instructors and now friends. Thanks for everything, it was perfect!
Hi Tyler & Kelsey, I wanted to take some time to thank you again for the great trip we had a couple of weeks ago. It was by far the best vacation I have ever been on and I think everyone in our group feels the same way. your hospitality was greatly appreciated. You both did an excellent job handling our crazy group. Every meal you prepared was excellent. Every place you took us was a great time. Everybody in our group enjoyed spending time with you. I can't wait to do it again. A trip in the BVI with you guys makes coming back to the real world seem like a bad idea.
I want to take a few short moments to convey my utter respect to Tyler & Kelsey. Finding talent is hard and they are quite a find. Young and responsible Captains, Chefs and Dive Instructors. A true trifecta. Our family just returned from what can only be described as the trip of our lifetime. Tyler & Kelsey exceeded all expectations. From diving to dining, to dingying we had a blast. We were treated with friendly hospitality, professional courtesy, mechanical mastery, safety stewardship and local lore. I would recommend them to any of my friends gladly and will.
My family could not imagine a better crew than Kelsey and Tyler. After spending a week with them, we found them both to have mastered all aspects of piloting, cooking, tour guiding, and SCUBA/snorkeling. They both have an even temperament and connect with both children and adults equally. Their meal preparation for breakfast, lunch, hors d'oeuvres, dinner and desserts were amazing in terms of being original, taste and presentations and every meal was so much better than what we experience with even the finest restaurants on shore. They are both experts in leading underwater adventures and were able to find and show interesting marine life that we would have missed on our own. They worked so hard all day long to provide us with the best possible experience.
The boat was wonderful and very comfortable. The crew 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.
