First Mate Kahlia - Take It Easy Custom Charters

First-Mate Kahlia

Kahlia was born an Aussie but has been on "walkabouts" for almost 10 years. She wanted to explore the Caribbean and planned a stay in the Virgin Islands for 3 months. It's now her 5th year and she just can't bear to leave. The islands, the beaches and the water are her obsession. Hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, boating and just about any other water-sport you can think of are her hobbies. She loves teaching children about the history and sea creatures of these islands, and can't wait to introduce you to her favorite island beaches and bars.

First Mate Alesha - Take It Easy Custom Charters

First-Mate Alesha

A Montana native with a passion for travel, Alesha was hooked the moment she stepped foot on the pristine beaches of the Virgin Islands. Her previous life had her battling the rapids as a river guide but has since retired to snorkeling, beach strolling, and making some of the best cocktails you’ll ever experience.
