Crew Information

Captain: Brandon Grant

MEET YOUR CREW:
CAPTAIN: Brandon Grant
CHEF: Alessia Colantoni

We are a fun loving, energetic and highly motivated couple who have been dating for over 5 years and here to continue our dream of working together onboard catamaran charters.
Our passion for the ocean and exploration drives us, as well as our love for entertaining guests and ensuring our guests are fully fulfilled by the end of charter.

Born and raised on the beautiful coastline of Ballito – The Dolphin Coast, South Africa, Brandon’s passion for the ocean started at a young age through his father. Over the years he gathered 16 years of skippering experience, mainly on deep sea fishing adventures. He attained his RYA Yatchtmaster in 2015 which led him to his first catamaran delivery from Capetown to Seychelles, followed by another one from
Greece to Maldives where his love for freediving and surfing blossomed. He then followed his fishing dreams and captained a sports fishing charter out of Seychelles where he stayed for the next 3 years.

Once meeting Alessia, there quest to work on a boat together found them running catamaran charters in St Maarten followed
by Antigua. Their ability to run great charters was evident and their craving for adventure grew which led them to the beautiful BVIs.

Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Alessia was raised in an Italian family where she learnt to cook authentic italian cuisine from a young age. Alessia’s mom owned 3 restaurants along with a few pasta shops, and through the combination of her Nonna's and her mother and father, her skills and passion for cooking were a given.

Alessia is a strong sportswoman and she qualified in swimming for the Olympics at the age of 16.

Alessia's father is also an avid scuba diver and she learnt at age 9 to scuba dive and it is still a favorite past time and combined with time at their family game lodge this feeds her undying love and respect for nature, animals and the ocean.
After school she moved to the seaside - the coastline of Ballito, South Africa - where she studied hospitality and met Brandon. Her studies led her to the Maldives, doing her internship in the food and beverage/kitchen/café departments. Alessia also has immense patience and a love for kids of all ages. Her young heart and caring nature will have kids well entertained and cared for on charters.

With Brandon’s background and mission plus Alessia's thirst for new adventures she attained her stewardess course in Cape Town and soon after her and Brandon set their hearts on chartering boats together and combining their skills into one beautiful
experience for guests.

Brandon and Alessia cannot wait for you to join them on Pura Vida for a wonderful Virgin Island vacation.
