Captain - Al Perry
Captain Al began his maritime career in Honolulu, Hawaii after his honorable discharge from the United States Marines. At 21 years old, he recognized the sea as his calling and pursued a career in the marine and yachting industry. Captain Al completed his United States Coast Guard 100 ton near coastal license, which provided more opportunities in the commercial industry. He worked in a variety of captain positions for passenger vessels including sunset cruises, glass-bottom boat tours, and commercial supply.
One of Captain Al’s most interesting jobs was as a local boat operator for motion picture and television production sets worldwide. His captain’s license and ability to maneuver large vessels in various shapes and sizes proved to be a valuable asset. He worked on sets of big motion pictures such as Titanic, Amistad, The Beach, Cast Away, and The Perfect Storm. Through this job, Captain Al traveled across Thailand, Italy, Malta, Fiji, and Hawaii.
Over the next few years, he gained experience as an engineer, mate, and captain on different yachts in the United States. In 2018, Captain Al moved to South Florida and worked onboard M/Y CACHEE. He traveled with this yacht to the Virgin Islands, Bahamas, and the Florida Keys until mid-2020. He was then offered and accepted the opportunity to captain ISLAND VIBES.
Captain Al is a dedicated, honest, and loyal captain with 20 years of experience under his belt. He is confident and passionate about his work onboard ISLAND VIBES and strives to make each charter a welcoming and memorable experience for guests. When he’s not at the helm of ISLAND VIDES, he’s still on the water. Captain Al enjoys sailing, outrigger canoeing, and open water diving.

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
