Your Crew


Jeremy was born in Sandusky, Ohio, and grew up on the family farms. After high school, he started working with masonry and at 20 years old started his own company. He then joined to US Army a few years later to attend the US Army diver course. Although he’d been on the water and islands of Lake Erie before joining the military, this was the point at which he knew he’d be on the water for a profession. After returning home, Jeremy moved to the Florida Keys to become a recreational dive instructor, spending over a decade boating and diving the keys. He next moved to Maui to continue to broaden his life experiences and professional aptitude becoming the director of dive operations at a large resort. Jeremy has continued to travel the world honing his skill set amassing over 5000 dives and multiple instructor-level certifications. In addition to a thorough background in water sports and captaining, he also has 18 years in the restaurant and bars service industry. Jeremy’s years of experience and wide range of skills have led him to become a well-rounded charter captain with over 50 charters in the Leeward and Virgin Islands.

Kylie was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. Growing up Kylie always knew she wanted to be a Marine Biologist. In an effort to escape the chilly Buffalo winters and get closer to the ocean, she moved to Tampa, Florida.
Kylie enrolled at the University of South Florida and graduated in 2020 with her bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology. Being that this was her first time ever living on her own, Kylie quickly realized she could not survive off scrambled eggs and box macaroni and cheese for long. This is when Kylie began to teach herself how to cook. It took some time, but Kylie is now a skilled, self-taught chef with a plethora of recipes she loves to share with family, friends, and charter guests!
While in school, Kylie worked as a bartender at some of the local restaurants where she had the opportunity to train with “Magic” Mike Warner, an iconic figure in the bartending community. During this time, she was nominated for the title of Best Bartender of the Bay by Creative Loafing. Now in the Virgin Islands, Kylie has found the perfect position that allows her to express her creativity through food and drinks all while being in the environment she loves most!

Will Remember This Incredible Trip Forever!

The Tortuga was amazing and accommodations were perfect. Liked all the water toys (“the turtle”) paddle Boards, fishing gear, snorkeling and dive equipment. Amenities (including the AC) were just like a nice resort. Periodic freshening the linens and bathrooms during our trip was an added bonus. Each cove we spent time in was beautiful. Loved the St John scenery. Buck Island was amazing and the lighthouse and bird sanctuary were highlights. The two hikes we did were awesome and loved the white rock beach and petroglyphs.
The diving was epic. Extremely varied and colorful coral were plentiful along with the vibrant sea life. The snorkeling was some of the best we have seen with lots of variety at shallow depths making surface viewing very enjoyable. The wreck at Buck Island was truly memorable. We saw turtles, squid, octopus, eels tarpon, shrimp, rays and several barracuda that supervised several dives from 10’ away along with the normal suspects including angels, parrot fish, damsel fish and tangs. Jace is a patient dive master giving us plenty of time to linger with our GoPro. The chef’s menus were spectacular. Each meal was unique and different and the presentation was top notch including rotating colorful linen napkins and nice placemats. (Sorry about the tie dye one). Always using fresh ingredients and healthy meals. Loved our daily appetizers and drinks of the day or whatever we asked for (expresso martinis and mai tais) Fruit and Snacks were a hit too. We have become fans of Love City and Caribe and hope to find those in Atlanta. We loved sailing with with this crew. They operated our entire trip with ether utmost professionalism and competence.
They were extremely flexible with hikes and options for activities and constantly helping with equipment. They embody teamwork and collaboration. Very Service Oriented, relaxed and laid back. They pay extreme attention to details from the provision list to transportation. They anticipated our needs even when we didn’t know we needed it. The captain has got a great dry sense of humor that makes everyone laugh and smile. The chef is easy to work with and is full of knowledge. We are so thankful for an amazing week and the crew made it special. We will remember this incredible trip forever.

Incredible Week

We have had and an incredible week aboard Tortuga. This was our third and hands down the best experience yet in the Virgin Islands thanks to the crew. They provided delicious meals, drinks, sunsets, hikes, diving excursions, and conversation. Words cannot express how grateful we are for this beautiful week! The captain certified our 12 year old to dive and showed us some incredible underwater wonders along the way. Between dives we had some lovely sails, fun tours on the sub wing, spike ball contests, snorkeled with turtles, hiked pretty view points, floated with drinks, paddle boarded and ate like kings. The chef catered to our preferences and prepared delicious meals. Some favorites included tuna poke bowl, shrimp ceviche, eggs benedict, beet hummus and key lime pie. She also makes a delicious margarita! The crew also made it possible for us to meet up with friends several times along the way. We met several other families at Lime Out and anchored along the corner for the kids to mix it up with some water sports and the adults to enjoy sundown. They made it possible for us to meet up with other for beach games, cocktails on each other boats and dinner at Lavango. We enjoyed every minute with these beautiful people and this beautiful place!

Beyond Words

To say this week has been spectacular would be a great understatement. It has been so so much more, it’s been magical. Thanks for making our first trip, our first ”Big” vacation, as a new couple and that we both will never forget!! If you’re ever in Atlanta, please do call us, we’d love to give you the “locals” tour.

Life Changing Week

Another life changing week come and gone. This place and this boat are unbelievable by themselves but the company is still far and away the real game changer. I really enjoyed every minute hanging around the crew and hope to see you again. I consider you both close friends now and will be of service to you both if there is ever anything I can do for you. Thanks so much for being so kind, gracious, witty, funny, and tolerant. I love you guys!

Just An Incredible Week!

Just an incredible week! Really don’t know where to start… maybe because we can’t remember… just kiddin’ (kinda)! In all seriousness, this has been an unbelievable trip full of great times and incredible friends of old and new. Captain and First-Mate were as we sailed the Virgin Islands and experienced things we never have before… swam with large sea turtles, snorkeled shipwrecks and visited historical sites among the islands! Things were “smooth sailing” all week long, even after we almost ran out of beer on day 3 lol… the crew made more appear in no time and we were “howling at the moon” again as we watched the sun set and the “almost” full moon appear each night! And WOW! The views!!! Hard to explain, so you’ll need to see it for yourself… beautiful! So as we begin our return to reality and the crazy we live in 2021, we can’t thank Tortuga and especially the crew for allowing us to escape for a few days an just enjoy life… island life! We shared our taste in food/drink as well as our taste in music with each other and learned a lot!We hope our hosts enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed theirs. Hopefully they can find their own getaway to Kentucky so we can return the hospitality. Either way, we are grateful and we will remember this trip to these islands forever!"

Special Adventure

Thank you for a being a stellar Captain and bringing us to the best spots in the islands! You steered us in the right directions, both figuratively and literally! This trip will leave a long lasting memory on me and it would not have been done without your being our captain. You are one of the best Captain's in the Caribbean. I can honestly say, that Chef without a doubt that this week has been one of the best dining experiences in my life! Thank for all that you have done to make this special adventure.

Most Amazing Trip

Hey. I haven’t had a chance til now to thank you guys for the most amazing trip on the boat!!! We got back Sunday and I haven’t stopped talking about our time on the boat and how dreamy it truly was. You both made the trip so special for our family. The kids miss you and want to come back on board. It’s hard to see your IG posts of others on the boat and not be jealous of them! Ha! You treated us like family and made us feel so special. This was a trip of a lifetime and we owe so much to you both! Thank you!!!!  I just told a friend today that I just had the best birthday ever on a boat in the Caribbean. It’s hard to describe to someone who’s never been how magical it really is to be in one of the most beautiful places on the earth....getting treated like royalty!!  Wishing you all the best this year!
