Doyle Van Horn
Capt Doyle was born in "The Heart of Arizona". Coming from a ranching background he spent his childhood playing in the woods and rivers of northern Arizona. After graduating from high school he set off traveling around the states working construction and other odd jobs. One of those jobs took him up to Valdez, Alaska where he found his way to the local marina. It was at that moment, seeing all the boats on the dock, that he fell in love with the idea of working on boats and finding a life at sea. After that trip he decided to go all-in and made his way to the Virgin Islands. At 19 years old he moved to St. Thomas to pursue a life on the water. Being the annoying kid on the dock asking for work, finally someone gave him a chance. He spent the next couple of years as crew on a 65-foot sailing cat working on his sea time and honing skills needed to be confident on deck. Eventually, working and getting his 100 ton master’s license. In 2003, he was promoted to captain and so began a dream life of sailing the islands and exploring his backyard that is the Caribbean. Throughout the years he had several opportunities that found him on multiple boats of different size and make, from 100 foot power yachts to 50 foot day sail cats. From running boats for major hotels like The Ritz Carlton, to private term yachts he let the sea and wind take him from The Virgin Islands to Hawaii, throughout the Great Lakes and down the eastern seaboard. In 2015, he had the opportunity to build a boat and start a small high-end private day charter business throughout the Virgin Islands. In August 2007 hurricane Irma and Maria swept through the Caribbean, devastating the islands and boating community throughout the area and beyond. He was forced to pack up and move back to the States where he got back to his roots and worked as a Cowboy for several ranches throughout Arizona. Sleeping under the stars and raising the beef that feeds the nation he found a real passion for the cowboy lifestyle; but in the back of his mind and the forefront of his heart he knew he was destined to make his way back to the sea. In 2021 Doyle sold all his horses and moved to St. Augustine Florida, to get back to the life that fuels his heart. Upon returning to the sea he found a new spark for the work and decided to go back to the island and pick up where he left off. Taking the Captain position onboard Nae Kae with chef Maya, he is excited to show you all the secrets that he found over his twenty years of exploration. Whether it’s showing guests the amazing world under the surface or harnessing the power of the wind to transport you from one island paradise to another; to strumming some tunes on deck for cocktail hour, you are sure to find the right itinerary for you and your group. Capt Doyle, and Chef Maya are happy to welcome you aboard Nae Kae for what is sure to be the best trip to the islands and possibly the best week of your life!
Chef Maya Walsh
Maya grew up primarily in the suburbs of Washington D.C. but spent several years going back and forth between her parents’ countries of Japan and Canada. A lover of water, she spent her youth body surfing on the beaches of California and sailing and canoeing on the lakes of Ontario. Upon graduating from the University of Toronto where she studied Japanese, Spanish and biology, she realized she wanted more involvement in the food world. And so her culinary journey began with six months of WWOOF-ing in Spain and Portugal followed by a move to Baltimore where she became involved in the robust organic urban farming community while cooking at an award-winning French bistro, bartending at a natural wine and sake bar, and roasting and serving coffee.
During 2020, she lived in Japan where she interned at a Michelin 2 star restaurant and worked at a traditional noodle shop. She is a graduate of the Ballymaloe Cookery School, an institution located on an organic farm in Cork, Ireland and of the Ashburton Yacht Chef Academy. Having traveled to over 30 countries, her culinary repertoire is diverse. Her experiences have led her to prioritize a commitment to sourcing high quality, seasonal, and local products, creating strong relationships with producers. She especially enjoys foraging, fermenting and pickling. In the most recent off-seasons, she was learning about the ancient wine culture of the Republic of Georgia and working the harvest on a low-intervention winery in Slovenia. She also spent time in Honduras accruing her PADI rescue diver certification. She is relentless when it comes to furthering her gastronomic knowledge, highly competent and committed to catering to all guests' dietary restrictions, preferences and aspirations.

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.
