Owner/Captain Joe Mellen has a 100 ton US Coast Guard Captain’s License and 20 years of sailing experience in the Virgin Islands. He is also an excellent Chef with a degree in hotel/restaurant management and experience in running resorts and restaurants in tourist destinations including Aspen, Mexico, Bali, and Australia.

Mary and Allison Hoffman are two sisters from Virginia that have happily transplanted themselves to the Virgin Islands. They fell in love with sailing and have been working on Scubadu for a combined 8 years. Both sisters now have their Master USCG Captain's licenses and are eager to jump in and captain charters while Joe travels the world.

Eric Edie, Scubadu's long time first mate, is an accomplished sushi chef and an even better space cadet. He makes a killer rum punch and enjoys long walks in the rain.

• • •

All of the aforementioned crew are completely useless when compared to Potter. Potter, our five year old Jack Russel Terrier, keeps the vessel afloat and is ever the guest favorite. He will perform tricks for chicken and win the hearts of many.

• • •

Regardless of the nonsense above, we promise that your captain and first mate will give you the best sailing experience paired with exceptional cuisine for your charter aboard Scubadu.

• • •

Come sail with us! Book Scubadu for a sailing experience that will surely be the highlight of your vacation.
