MEET THE CREW - 2019/20 SEASON
Captain - Kyle Glowacky
Chef/Host - Tim Montgommery
1st Mate/Stewardess - Amanda Dietter
Your skipper, Captain Kyle, has been near the sea his entire life. Growing up a New Englander, Kyle began working in the waters off the coast of New Hampshire in lobster boats, eventually finding his way into sailing tall ships. After attending Emerson College and graduating with a B.F.A., he soon realized it’s hard to make money as an artist. He then returned to the water and has been sailing professionally ever since. Captain Kyle knows these waters like the back of his hand having spent seven years chartering the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Now back after a two-year hiatus working as a licensed officer aboard National Geographic expedition ships from Alaska to Baja California Sur, he longed to return to his roots sailing on a more intimate and personal scale. He strives to deliver a safe trip while ensuring his guests have the most fun and memorable time of their lives.
Your First Mate/Chef Tim Montgomery has achieved his life’s aspiration. After working nearly a decade in landlocked, stressful kitchens, he decided to take a more relaxed intimate approach while preparing high end meals dedicated to sourcing fresh quality local ingredients. Only now he works on Caribbean time. Tim began his career working under one of the United States top chefs, Carl McConnell. During this time Tim honed his skills by working endless hours preparing James Beard nominated dishes. After attending culinary school and furthering his education, Tim decided to leave the nest and see the world. He left the Midwest and headed for the seas working for the prestigious eco-tourism company National Geographic Lindblad Expeditions. He takes pleasure in bringing guests together with his family-style dining approach or by wowing them with his expertly plated prix fixe dishes. An avid scuba diver, adventurer, and naturalist, join him by snorkeling the Caribbean reefs and then allow him to prepare your favorite dishes as you enjoy staring out into the serene blue waters.
Your Stewardess Amanda Dietter is no stranger to the water. Being born on the Gulf coast she spent her early years gaining understanding and adoration for the ocean. Her working career began at her father’s catering business. Some of her fondest memories were working alongside Dad in the kitchen. After earning her college degree at UNCC she began working in the hectic corporate sector of Charlotte, North Carolina. Over the past ten years she found herself visiting and quickly falling in love with the Islands. In 2017 she spontaneously decided to call St. John home. She has an immense love for the outdoors, fishing, snorkeling, and hiking. On a whim, friends asked her to help move their boat from St. Marteen to St. John. In this time, Amanda gained a newfound passion for sailing and an even greater admiration for the sea. Allow her to share her passion with you and indulge in some of the finest cocktails the Islands have to offer.
While exploring the perfect beaches of St. John these three quickly became best friends. Their combined passion for water, excellent service, and having a good time led them to partnering up and sharing their interests with their guests. Let them show you the enchanted Caribbean waters and give a vacation of a lifetime to you, your friends, and family.
Come aboard as guests and leave as lifelong friends.
