Brief

Meet Captain Dirk and First Mate Sandy DeLo and share in their passion for boating, fun and adventure!

Dirk is a USCG certified Captain and lifelong sailor with a special love for all things nautical. He started sailing solo at 5 years old and has been leading yacht charters around the world for over 25 years! Some of his favorite destinations are French Polynesia and the British Virgin Islands where he first visited in 1981. He is an avid water sports enthusiast and will be happy to lead you on SCUBA dives to the best locations, snorkeling, tubing, wake boarding, knee boarding, kayaking, SUP, deep sea fishing, and even provide an introduction to kite boarding. He also has a Mavic Pro drone aboard and will be happy to record breathtaking footage of your vacation aboard Catatonic.

Sandy began sailing in college and has never looked back! She loves entertaining and introducing people to the seafaring lifestyle! She has been cooking since the age of 10 and she loves to get creative in the galley and serve up tasty snacks and beautiful meals to the guests.

In 2007, Dirk and Sandy started charters in the Virgin Islands where Catatonic, a Lagoon 440 was the flagship of the fleet. She enjoyed a reputation as one of the most popular, most fun and busiest charter sailing yachts in the US and British Virgin Islands for ten years. Sadly, Catatonic 440 was lost in Hurricane Irma. Our 4 Cabin Lagoon 500, Catatonic 500, carries on the legacy of bringing vacations of a lifetime to our guests.
