CAPTAIN BEN & CHEF/MATE MICHELLE FOGLESONG

Captain Ben was always fascinated by the sea, he started scuba diving and sailing regularly while studying marine biology at UVA. He later moved to Florida to be closer to the water and earn his master’s degree from the University of Miami. During Ben’s time in Florida, he taught scuba diving and ran boats upgrading his USCG Master captain’s credential to 100GT. Ben is also an American Sailing Association sailing instructor and enjoys sharing the intricacies of sailing this amazing vessel with an interested guest. He is very serious about the safety of his guests and yacht but this certainly does not impede his ability to have fun onboard.
During his time in Florida is where he met Michelle and the two have been inseparable since day one. After getting engaged they decided a life on the water in the Caribbean would suit them perfectly and began to work towards the big move. The two initially took jobs on the water cruising and diving. Daily snorkel and scuba trips were rewarding but they knew they wanted to get to sail more while sharing their culinary creations with people and EXCESS was the perfect fit.

Onboard Excess Ben enjoys sharing a wide variety of water activities with his guests including diving board, underwater scooters, wakeboarding, tubing, and many more. He is a highly credentialed PADI scuba and freediving instructor who is also classically trained in marine biology and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of the organisms and ecosystems we observe underwater with guests. Ben is a veteran with a background in fitness training who will gladly take you on a rewarding hike to some of the best views atop the islands or can put together and accompany you in a morning workout on board, upon request. Ben also loves crafting your favorite cocktail and getting you comfortable in one of the vessel’s large exterior spaces or taking that perfect vacation photo for your group with his drone.

Michelle is known for her kind nature and positive outlook, “in optimism there is magic” she often says.

Born on the Central East Coast of Florida, Michelle grew up with saltwater coursing through her veins. She spent the weekends cruising the waters of the inter-coastal with her family who taught her all about boating, sea life, and fishing. Although boating was the highlight of every week, she never imagined it one day becoming a part of her career.

Cooking also became a passion for Michelle at a young age. She spent every Christmas break in Pennsylvania with her Italian grandmother and great grandmother. This time spent was invaluable as she learned all about the foundation of her families’ secret recipes. “Even now when I visit we still spend 80% of the time in the kitchen (the other 20% eating)”, Michelle says. She continues, “It’s so great that I can now give my grandmother a rest; cooking for her and proving that I was paying close attention all these years.”

Michelle loves to cook with fresh herbs, vegetables, and lean proteins. Her favorite challenge is turning something some consider boring into something magnificent! She loves experimenting with combinations of French and Asian flavors that send the taste buds spinning. Guests aboard Excess are in for a tasty experience that will be remembered long after their charter.

When not in the galley you can find Michelle leading dives/snorkels, planning memorable events for any occasion, or shaking up delicious cocktails. Basically, anything to make chartering on Excess the vacation of a lifetime.

Ben Started working in the Caribbean in 2013 and together with Michelle they have been chartering in the Caribbean Islands as a team since early 2016. They take pride in everything they do and enjoy applying their combined 20 years’ experience in hospitality with their local knowledge to create the perfect experience for your group.

Can’t Wait For Next Trip

Where do we begin...can we just start his amazing trip on Excess with the two of you all over again? Starting 2020 with you made for the best New Years day ever. Beyond! In every way. Dolphins (4) leaving our way to paradise to way too many passion fruit orchids...but who is counting? Scuba diving with sharks, over indulging in the chef’s amazing meals and the best hospitality with you two. You saved us on a daily basis with the perfect remedies to insure our trip was beyond our highest expectations. We loved every minute and hate to leave. Ben as captain, was the best we have ever had on a cat in the BVI. (This was our third time...so we know a stand-out!) Thank you for every minute. We can't wait until next time! You 2 have huge hearts and made Excess feel like home. Thank you

Excess Is So Special

Thank you" hardly seems sufficient, but I suppose it is a good start. This trip started as just a big dream that I wasn't sure we'd be able to pull people together for. The fact that my friends and family indulged me for my bucket list 40th birthday celebration is not something I take for granted. Everything about this trip was amazing. I truly do not think it could have been any better. The boat itself is obviously beyond beautiful...but to be honest it's the two of you that make Excess so special. We will never forget the kindness and personal care you showed each one of us. You two were made for this and we not only hope to do it again some day, but to do it again with you both. Thank you for your hard work, your special hearths, your amazing talents...and the best trip we could've ever asked for!

 by Glen July Charter Guest on Epic Yacht Charters

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time on Excess. Your profession attitude and willingness to answer our questions was also appreciated. It's truly been a fantastic 30th Anniversary trip with our friend and kids. You guys are rock stars! Until next time.....

A Dream Come True

A dream come true!!! Thank you so much for the most wonderful BVI experience. Everything was first class. I can't imagine how the chef came up with so many great eating presentations. We were truly spoiled all day every day. The captain's knowledge of the islands and guiding us to the best sights in the islands was above and beyond. Thank you Excess for a vacation above all vacations. A dream come true!!

Wonderful Week

“What a wonderful week our family had in your care – we enjoyed sailing, snorkelling, trips ashore, fantastic meals and delicious desserts – and most of all becoming acquainted and re-acquainted with the BVI. Thank you for planning our itinerary, showing us so many wonderful sites and sharing your beautiful boat with us!” ! It was a great trip, and the kids really loved it. Next time we will have our diving certification so that we can see even more fish!” “The trip was amazing! I saw 5,000,000 things. The fish were amazing!” “I thought that it was an amazing trip. It was so cool to see all the colourful fish and reefs.”

Most Amazing Week Of Our Lives

Thank you for hosting one of the most amazing weeks of our lives. The food was absolutely delicious. From the alligator wrestling to the endless fire fighting banter and three full moons over the boat. We had a blast. Cheers!!
