YACHT CREW

Captain: Luke Whitley

With over 20 years of experience on the water, Luke’s is a capable and confident captain whose primary focus is always the safety of his passengers and the vessel.

Luke grew up in Northern Michigan and started his career in the marine industry as the Assistant Harbormaster of a luxury marina. During his time on the water he focused his attention on sailing, his true passion, by restoring several boats and successfully competing in hundreds of regattas.

After receiving a degree in Information Technologies and spending eight years as an IT Analyst, Luke decided to leave his office job behind and pursue a career full time in the yachting industry.

Since he was young Luke has had an interest in mechanics. His experience in the IT realm further helped him develop the skills he needs to diagnose and handle complex mechanical, electronic and system issues.

Luke has a 50-ton Masters license with sailing and towing endorsements and has experience as a captain on boats up to 70 feet in length. He is an advanced SCUBA diver and plans to work to become a Dive Master by the end of the winter.

Luke is very systematic, adventurous and knowledgeable. He has a thirst for learning new skills and mastering new challenges, while simultaneously being cautious and prepared.

Luke is passionate about the outdoors and loves SCUBA, paddle boarding, and driving motorcycles. In the winter he is an avid snowboarder and enjoys ice boating. He grew up hunting, camping, and fishing with his family. He truly enjoys meeting new people and learning about different cultures.

Chef/Mate: Bethany Whitley

Bethany also grew up in Northern Michigan and found her enthusiasm for boating when she met Luke in 2004. After spending several years learning the ropes, competing in regattas, and participating in restoration projects alongside Luke; Bethany was all in on making a lifestyle change and transitioning to boating full time.

Before working in the yachting industry Bethany had a successful career in Economic and Community Development. She worked with dozens of municipalities throughout Michigan to help improve the quality of life for their citizens. With a degree in Public Relations and Communications and a certificate in federal grant writing Bethany has a high degree of organizational skills which help to run each boating program she manages smoothly.

Bethany has her Merchant Mariner credentials, Standards of Training and Certified Watchkeeping certificates and is certified in SCUBA. She has a Level II Food Handlers Certificate and was formerly a trained open water lifeguard. In addition to crewing on yachts she also writes freelance sailing articles for Quantum Sailing.

Bethany has always enjoyed cooking. After managing a farmer’s market for several years, her style is influenced by fresh, local food prepared in a simple, yet elegant manner. She enjoys getting to know where the food comes from and the people who harvest it. The abundance of fresh ingredients offered in the Virgin Islands are a dream to work with and she looks forward to pleasing her guests with delicious seafood selections and specialty cocktails.

Bethany has a laid back and fun-loving, positive attitude. Her degree in Public Relations helps her remain sensitive to the needs of her guests. She understands how important vacation time is and will go above and beyond to help her guests have a wonderful experience aboard Pride. Whether it’s cooking a special meal or leading guests on a fun excursion she has the skills needed to ensure that you have a vacation to remember.

In her free time Bethany enjoys reading, and spending time outdoors hiking, snorkeling, and traveling to new places. She is a chocoholic and has a passion for animals and marine life.

YACHT TESTIMONIALS

PRIDE's New Years week, 2015/2016 guests said:

Todd, my husband, and I wanted to send a personal note too to let you know what an absolutely amazing time we had. While we knew the couples we were going with - my husband and I are used to staying in one spot for the week and just lounging (nice change from our fastpace life..). I took in each day with gratitude - the peace while sailing on the water was so good for me, the beautiful Islands we saw I documented each step of the way - I LOVED Cooper and Marina Cay - Anegada was a favorite although it took awhile to get there. (also - was it particularly windy last week or is it always like that in the Caribbean? I don't remember that on my previous visits!) The beds were so comfy - sheets too. The little details matter with me and I appreciated a good nights sleep. Kait did a wonderful job on our meals and now I'm craving one of her delicious mojitos!! I'm not sure the charter would have been as great without crew- they were wonderful and your boat is just beautiful! I wish you the best in this new year. 

All the Best,

Kristen and Todd

Yes the week was wonderful! Our hosts were excellent and we really enjoyed the trip. I think if I were to do it again, I would probably book in a busier time when other young kids were around (can't believe I actually said that!), and I would have added more scuba diving as they really liked it. The weather and water were beautiful, food was excellent and very hospitable. You don't ever have to worry about your boat as I see they treat it as if it is theirs and with such care. Thanks Susan for all the help. I'm sorry I meant to email you as soon as we returned, but it got busy very quickly!

Thanks again!
 
To anyone reading these testimonials… stop your search for the right charter and book your trip now with these guys before someone else does!
 truly the Hosts-with-the-Most! They quite simply don’t miss a beat and anticipate your every need before you know yourself!
 
We felt at first a little bad (and lazy) in that we didn’t lift a finger the whole trip, but then soon realised that’s simply … Maximum relaxation!
The food was amazing (one of the big reasons we picked you after reading the other reviews) and we weren’t disappointed… DIY Sushi night…fantastic… Oh and in case I forget to mention, cocktails (Best Painkillers we had the whole trip, and his Pomegranate Martini’s… wow!)
 
All this, and they’re sailing the boat at the same time… they just made it look so effortless…
I had forwarded what was clearly a majorly ambitious itinerary for a 3 day charter, and we hit every place on the list!
Invariably we always got the best mooring spots due to the crew getting started early morning while we were all sleeping, only to awake at our destination to the aroma of fresh coffee and  Bacon and freshly made muffins… OMG!
 
As for the boat, lovely cabins with plenty of room (even for a 6’2” guy like me!), fantastic space out front for 6 to lounge comfortably all day, Great fun with the two-paddle boards and some of the best snorkeling we had seen in years!
 
Can’t imagine NOT doing a charter again . You guys are truly amazing, and we’re all counting the days to the next time!
Richard Dunne & gang
