CAPTAIN PAUL AND CHEF/MATE ALICIA
Paul has had a love for life on the water since a very young age – sailing, surfing, free diving, and competitive kiteboarding. Being near or on the water has always been of great importance to him.
In 2014 Paul began his carrier as a charter captain which has brought him internationally offering crewed charters in Sweden, Italy, Greece, Croatia, the San Juan Islands, Maine, and the Caribbean. In 2016, Paul moved to the Virgin Islands to work as a full-time captain aboard SV Pelican, a 58-foot catamaran, offering all-inclusive dive sailing charters in the USVI and BVI. Having the Caribbean right off the back deck made for the chance to learn many of the locations for free diving, kiteboarding, hiking, and all the fun activities that make a sailing trip a great adventure. Returning to the Mediterranean every summer Paul continues to grow his local knowledge of each location with a focus on Greece and Italy. His passion for the sailing lifestyle and the ocean is infectious and he brings both excitement and experience to every charter.
He is also a well-recognized teacher of outdoor photography and lighting. Paul happily shares his love for boating and photography as a captain who also can teach high-level photography to guests onboard in beautiful and remote locations.
Chef Alicia Fisher – Alicia grew up in the small sailing town of Annapolis, Maryland.
While majoring in Environmental Studies, she lived on her small sailing boat throughout the university. During this time at college, she worked at various restaurants and vineyards, eventually working her way up to managing a small restaurant. Combing her passion for sailing, adventure, hospitality, and the natural environment, she joined the yachting industry 5 years ago and has been cruising the world ever since. Alicia’s cuisine style can best be described as “International Bistro,” combing flavors from the various locations she has traveled around the world. Reminiscent of home-style comfort with a modern twist, Alicia looks forward to welcoming you with an ultimate sense of ease while taking your tastebuds on an adventure you’ll never forget!
Alicia’s additional hobbies include Hiking, photography, musical and cultural pursuits in each new location she’s visiting, and diving. Alicia started diving in college for oyster restoration and research projects throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed and has an expansive knowledge of marine life.

The trip was amazing. We all had boat loads-ha ha- of fun. The grandkids loved the crew as did we all.. They did their utmost to make the trip memorable and succeeded. The boat was amazing. We can't thank you enough for your last minute pull the catamaran out of the hat trick. They took us to places we remembered from our past trips and some we had not been to. All in all it was wonderful. The crew, the boat, the food- everything. Evenings after the kids went to bed when we weren't too tired ourselves, were chock full of games and drinks. Taboo, Pass the pigs, and a dice game the crew taught us brought on the laughs. Watching Jonah think he was steering the boat when it was on autopilot was hilarious. They had the grandkids write notes and put them in wine bottles and throw them overboard. We have videos and pictures to document our Island jaunts, including conch blowing with "The Pirate".
Once we left harbor I realized the next 6 days would be a postcard in every direction. I like to be active and between scuba diving, wake-boarding, stand up paddle boarding, and kayaking I had plenty to do. Each day was checking out a new beautiful and quaint island. Each meal was incredible, not just decent. It was a great bonus to have WiFi and be able to FaceTime with my wife and kids. A week that sadly flew by...
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!
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 the yacht and crew. 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. The crew 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. 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 a 91 on the 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 and they are great instructors. The itinerary was perfect. Our best vacation very by far!
I want to take a few short moments to convey my utter respect for whoever hired this crew. Finding talent is hard and they are quite a find.

Please take a few moments to congratulate them on the excellent service and most-worthy seamanship they brought during our journey.
