Captain: Hylton Wess

After spending just a few minutes with Hylton and Amy you will pick up on their passion for the ocean. Growing up on the East Coast of South Africa meant their childhoods were both full of outdoor adventures, with family and friends, along the coastline. Hylton and Amy have spent the last 7 years together on the ocean running SCUBA trips, spearfishing trips, whale swimming trips, line fishing trips as well as term and adventure yacht charters. Three of these years were spent living in the remote islands of Tonga in the South Pacific, this has taught them a lot about enjoying and appreciating the simple things in life. What they enjoy most is sharing their passion for the ocean with others, those new to it and those who are already ocean souls like themselves.

Hylton has covered many miles in his sailing career which started off 10 years ago delivering sailing yachts from South Africa to various parts of the world. Hylton is a certified freediver, SCUBA dive master, in-water whale swim guide and RYA yacht master. The minute you meet Hylton you will catch on to his passion for spearfishing, fishing and freediving. His charisma and enthusiasm will make everyone feel at home onboard. He is an extremely competent Captain and in water guide and will be sure to share any knowledge about freediving and spearfishing to those who are interested.

Amy is a certified Rescue SCUBA diver, freediver, in-water whale swim guide and has her honors degree in Marine Biology. She is very confident in the water and will always be willing to take guests out to find some interesting creatures or critters to observe. She would love to share any knowledge to inquisitive minds, no matter how young or old. Her passion and bubbly personality make her an instant hit with guests. She has completed 2 Atlantic crossings and has thoroughly enjoyed living onboard sail boats for the last 4 years around the Caribbean.

Amy and Hylton both enjoy spending time in the galley. They have picked up recipes from the South Pacific, Indonesia, South Africa and the Caribbean that they will share with you during your stay. They love to create delicious meals that are sure to please the taste buds. One of their favourite parts of their lifestyle is being able to selectively catch what they cook and create fresh and delicious meals onboard or over a beach bonfire.

Reviews

SERENDIPITY
Thank you for an AMY-ZING and special week
Hylton and Amy, your generous and thoughtful spirit gave our family the opportunity to relax and enjoy each other in the tropical Caribbean, a place we love. You made each day special for us and we will take warm happy memories home!
SERENDIPITY
Amazing Knowledge
Our first trip ever away from Alaska at Christmas turned out to be one of the most amazing trips we have ever done! Amy and Hylton were so amazing and paid attention to every one of our pretrip questions. So fun and down to earth. The food was incredible and all the extra touches made it feel like Christmas. Amazing knowledge and patience with our teenage kids – showing them sailing, fishing and snorkeling techniques. Priceless! Top of the list trip! Thank you! Would do it over again!
SERENDIPITY
We can’t wait to book our next trip.
Fantastic, amazing, heavenly… just a few words to describe our trip. We came as friends and left as great friends plus 2! Hylton and Amy anticipated our every need, even before we knew we had them. They are very gracious hosts, making us feel very comfortable and welcome! Who knew painkillers were such an important part of life, especially since Amy makes the best ones in the world, in addition to incredibly creative meals and Hylton's deep knowledge of anything ocean was impressive.
SERENDIPITY
Best family trip yet
Between the freediving lessons, Heads up board game, Amy's gourmet meals, Hylton's spearfishing stories and adventures, we had an absolute BLAST! John will be talking about you two for the rest of his life.
SERENDIPITY
One of the best trips of our lives
Just amazing. Hylton and Amy are just amazing people. From Amy's cooking, that was to die for... and Hyltons stories - "the most interesting man in the world". The sailing, the stops, the awesome snorkeling... It was all a blast. Thanks so much.
SERENDIPITY
They made it seamless
From the first meeting with our captain, Hylton and first mate Amy we knew we were in good hands. Amy's food and love of the Ocean made her a huge hit with all, especially my nieces that are 9 and 13. Don't even get me started on Hylton, his passion and energy were infectious. Movie nights on the deck were a huge hit but snorkeling with Hylton and Amy took it to a whole new level. They took care of all our needs without us even noticing, they made it seamless. We have already started saving for our next trip.
