Your Crew

CAPTAIN MAYON & MATE ELIZABETH

Mayon was born in Maryland on the east coast of the USA with sailing blood passed down from his grandfather and mother. With access to a small sailboat as a kid, he has many memorable “learning” experiences as a young adventurous waterman in the making. He then went on to finish his childhood on the Big Island of Hawaii where he truly fell in love with the ocean. After completing a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering he switched gears back to the ocean and sailed from Maryland down to the Caribbean where he started his career as a boat captain. With the sails up and underway, Mayon exudes the kind of contagious enthusiasm that will have everyone aboard excited. He’s calm, collected nature and willing to share his thoughts, techniques, and plans, bringing an inclusive and confident feel to the boat. You are sure to feel empowered to learn, explore, and relax while in the comfort of this kind, relaxed, true sailor.

For as long as she can remember, Elizabeth has always felt a connection to the ocean & island living. Perhaps it’s her Hawaiian middle name of “Leilani”, or her disdain for growing up in cold, snowy Michigan. As soon as she graduated from high school, Elizabeth escaped the snow, moving to sunny Los Angeles to pursue her passion for dancing. She spent the next 10 years splitting her time between NYC & LA, performing with icons such as The Radio City Rockettes, Beyoncé, Pitbull & more. In addition to her performing career, Elizabeth made a name for herself in the event & meeting planning industry. As a self-proclaimed “master organizer”, and an artist by nature, this career path was a natural fit. Despite having her dream jobs, bicoastal living, and working in two fast-paced industries made for a quick burnout rate, and in 2017 she decided it was time to slow down – and what better place to slow down than the Hawaiian Islands! Maui, Hawaii is where Elizabeth’s passion for sailing & ocean adventure was born. Within weeks of landing on the island, Elizabeth had a job crewing on several sailboats, had become dive certified & was well on her way to becoming a professional mermaid. Flash forward to the present where Elizabeth feels as though she has manifested not only her dream job, but her dream life – entertaining- ing, adventuring, preparing culinary creations, and curating once-in-a-lifetime sailing experiences, all while island hopping around the world!

Mayon and Elizabeth fell in love on the beaches of Maui, Hawaii as two young, adventurous, ocean lovers. Lucky enough for them both, their first encounter was as unknown roommates who happened to move in under the same roof as a mutual friend. At first sight, they knew that keeping the social norm of “don’t date your roommate” was out of the question!
Their kindred spirits attracted them together from the very first night they met, where an impromptu sunset sailing trip on Mayon’s Hobie 18’ took them well into the night. After their “love at first sight”, the duo went on countless more Maui adventures before moving aboard a Cosmos 49’ catamaran in Thailand. After sailing that boat to Sri Lanka they solidified their joint dream of running their own charter boat and started their career together as captain and hostess. Mayon and Elizabeth’s togetherness is the solid core on which their charters are built, putting their guests at ease no matter the challenge. They are passionate about the trip they deliver, cultivating a feeling of adventure and well-being, that is sure to last far beyond your time in their care.

Most Amazing Week!

Thank you for the most amazing week. I have never seen the kiddos come out of their shell like this before. They adore you all so much and you created so many memories for them! Seriously, from the chef being in a mermaid costume, and giving giving cooking lessons and the captain teaching Eva her new favorite game- you guys cannot be topped! I have loved every moment from this trip and cannot wait for the next. Thank you for taking such good care of us!!

The BEST Family Holiday Ever!

This was without doubt THE best holiday our family has ever had! The care and attention the crewgave us was incredible, they really went above and beyond to make our trip a once in a lifetime experience! We cannot wait to come back! With so much love, respect and gratitude

Unforgettable Time!

I'm writing this whilst gazing at a rainbow! We hoped for a grey morning to leave… but alas! We had an unforgettable time and it was all down to you three! You gave us SUCH an experience, but what you did for our girls was truly remarkable. I’m gonna say that my favorite moment for them was the Baths at Virgin Gorda with the pirate treasure and the folklore - but for me it was the sail to Anegada- ALL the sailing! Thank you will never quite cover it- see you at the Gorge!

Amazing Week With Amazing Service

With heartfelt gratitude we would like to sincerely thank you for the amazing week we had on the Aeolus. We feel extremely fortunate to have experienced our time in The Virgin Islands on this yacht and with all of you as the incredible crew. The level of service you provided to us and your level of care and concern for our family and your attention to detail with every aspect of the trip was truly exceptional. In my business we always try to train our team members to provide this level of service to build lifetime relationships and lifetime guests – it is never easy to execute on, but you all nailed it. The last two years have been full of challenges due to living through COVID restrictions and protocols, but this trip provided the perfect and much needed respite from these challenges. It is appropriate that tomorrow is Thanksgiving because we could not be more thankful for this trip and for the crew hosting us. Lastly, I would like you to forward this message to the owner of the Aeolus. I would like to let him know that if this was my boat I would feel very fortunate to have this crew on board. The level of care and concern they have for their guests is the same as the level of care and concern they have for your yacht – they treat it as if it’s their own in every way. Impressive. Thank you again for your incredible service and this amazing week in the Caribbean.

We Will Cherish Our Time Forever

Thank you for such a magical week aboard Aeolus. From the minute we arrived (and before) we felt taken care of. Our otherwise stressful arrival was made easier by your calm and confident attitude. That transpired into the diving and the kids comfortably got certified under your guidance. We loved all of the boys and activities, from the paddle boards to (especially) the efoils. We cannot say enough about the chef’s cooking. We all anxiously awaited every meal and felt incredibly spoiled with each delicious bite. I am not sure what we will do without her creative creative and yummy cocktails. Most importantly you created such a warm and inviting environment that enabled us to relax and enjoy every single moment. WE will cherish our time on the boat.

Magical Nautical Adventure

We will always remember the most magical and meaningful nautical adventure from the glorious depths of the ocean reefs to the top of Caneel Hill every experience was full of wonder and delight. Each exquisite meal so beautifully and loving prepared brought us joy and inspired a sense of the true awe. From the first ever scuba excursion on Scott Beach to the last night dive to bender the sea in such great hands. We can't wait for our next trip!

Best Possible Experience

My family could not imagine a better crew. After spending a week with them aboard Aeolus we found them both to have mastered all aspects of piloting, cooking, tour guiding, and snorkelling. They both have an even temperament and connect with both children and adults equally as well. Their meal preparation for breakfast, lunch, hors d'oeuvres, dinner, and desserts was amazing in terms of originality, taste and presentation and every meal was so much better than what we experienced 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. We will definitely request them again on our next visit.

Sailing In Paradise

Mere words are insufficient to describe the incredible trip and wonderful honeymoon with our friends and the three of you. Your wit, charm, hospitality and fabulous food will stay with us for many years. Thank you for making our sailing trip in paradise so special.

Wonderful Week

You have an incredible sailboat and we all had an amazing time! The captain & chef were wonderful and they were most excellent hosts. The captain was a confident & skilled captain and the chef was quite the accomplished chef! The snorkeling was simply my favorite part and I also enjoy Sandy Cay, the beaches and standing from time to time on solid land :). The food was fabulous, absolutely nothing could be improved upon in that arena! I’ve already shared my experience with some friends and told them to look up Karma. We really could rave about everything from the very beginning as the taxi driver was a lovely individual and the crew arranged for him to take us both from and to the airport- that was a special touch. While we ate breakfast, the chef was making our beds and cleaning our room/bathrooms. The whole trip was relaxing, enjoyable and quite memorable! The crew a very knowledgeable and helpful snorkel guides. I, by the way, had the most amazing snorkeling adventure where a little fish hung out with me for at least 45 minutes and no matter where I swam, fast or slow, he swam right in front of my goggles. When I stopped to clear the goggles, the fish would stay right by my body. In fact, he didn’t leave until I had to get in the boat…I miss that little fish :). The special drink of the day each day was a super nice touch. Thank you for a wonderful week!!!
