Captain: Kieran Bown
Kieran & Michelle met back in 2012 in Mexico whilst working in the dive industry as instructors and photographers. Since then they have been on an unstoppable adventure that has taken them across the Caribbean, Americas, Europe & SE Asia.
They have now been in the charter industry for 5 years and are definitely enjoying their home in the British Virgin Islands. A country full of history and secrets that has allowed them to slowly discover more and more as their adventure continues.
Both Kieran & Michelle were led to the ocean by a passion for scuba diving and adventure, it is was this passion that formed the foundation for a life destined on the ocean. Being on boats has been an integral part of their lives since they were young and it was a natural progression to move on to running sailing yachts in the Caribbean.
Michelle is a trained chef, completing the Ashburton Chefs academy in 2017 to add to her extensive personal experience of working under an array of incredible Yacht & Restaurant Chefs. She also has dive instructor rating and is a qualified captain that thrives on deck.
Kieran is an accomplished diver as well as Captain. He enjoys most water sports and has a keen interest in marine life.
Following Irma & Maria in 2017, Kieran & Michelle spent 15 months living on Tortola rebuilding a hurricane damaged catamaran and returned it to the charter fleet. This was an invaluable experience for any charter crew rebuilding a yacht from the ground up and learning every aspect of the rebuild, repairs and upgrades along the way. Here they collectively developed a strong knowledge of Boat Building, Project Management and general Marine Engineering.
In addition to working on charter yachts, Kieran & Michelle’s other passion is adventure and photography. It is this combination that led to the birth of Panga Expedtions. For the past 6 years they have been travelling the world, capturing incredible footage from both above and below the surface and have been featured on countless National TV Channels/Online Media Oulets including Nat Geo, Discovery, Shark Week, GoPro & Google. Whilst enjoying brief sponsorships from GoPro, Light & Motion and other adventure sport companies to help capture incredible footage.
They’re now working on developing a worldwide itinerary that will include guided trips to participate in; Humpback Whales in water interactions, Tiger Shark Dives, Wakeboarding, Whitewater Kayaking, Mountain Biking whilst being filmed in 4K. This will be operated during the hurricane season and will allow them the opportunity to both charter and pursue their dream of running expeditions.
Twin Flame will be accompanied by a third crew member, Hannah Rubino.

Where do we being?! This adventure has meant so much to our family. Thank you for pushing the limits - from cliff jumping to diving to dinghy drops to very long hikes we’ve really loved every moment. Thank you for your patience teaching us to foil and giving us new water sports tips and tricks. Kieran your energy is endless! You motivated and inspired all of us to live this trip to the max! We really had so many “big days”.
Michelle, your cooking was epic. One superstar meal after the next. I think we all fell in love with either a food we had never tried or thought we didn’t like. We were absolutely blown away by your talent in the kitchen but also on the water. Your foiling skills are unmatched. The Twin Flame will always hold a special place in our hearts. Some of our most favorite moments were just sailing the open ocean and laying out in the lounge area up top. We feel like we’ve made friends for life and we’re counting the days to our next adventure on the TF.
One of the things that I really appreciate about the two of you as crew is how involved you are with the guests. You don’t just point them in the right direction - you actually lead them on the adventures which really enhances their experience.
And let’s not forget the food - “amazing - much more than we expected."
Thanks again - I have already sung your praises with another broker this morning. I hope that I can send some more charters your way.
I spent 7 days with Kieran and Michelle cruising the BVI. They were such welcoming people! I remember them helping us board the boat from the dingy and being beyond helpful. Throughout the week they made very tasty cocktails, delectable food, and joined in on our 11 person group conversations. Kieran captained the boat from time to time and was a wonderful navigator. Additionally, they were incredible dive leaders- taking 3 of our group members down for the first time. Everyone enjoyed the diving with them so much! I would HIGHLY recommend them for a charter as I know they take such great care of their guests. By the end of the week, we felt like family and long friends.

Kieran. The hardest thing to do in a confined space for a week is to keep the kids (ages 7-14) entertained and interested. Kieran did that wonderfully. At every stop all of the toys were instantly in the water and Kieran was ready to go with whatever they wanted to do. And he never got tired, if they wanted to be on the dingy for 4 hours, Kieran was there with energy and a smile. The new things he introduced us to were great, including the HaliJump, the SubWing, and the secret cliff jumping pool, all highlights. And I haven’t even talked about SCUBA yet, Kieran was awesome with the SCUBA, encouraging dives every day. By the end of the trip, he had certified two new divers, gave resort lessons to two more, and did multiple dives with the three pre certified divers. From beach dives to more advanced, everyone LOVED the diving. I can not say enough about Kieran’s great spirit, temperament, and energy.
Kieran was accompanied by Michelle, who is simply wonderful. I will start with the diving, Michelle loves to dive too and she was involved with all the dives. It was helpful to have both Kieran and Michelle on dives as we could break up the group based on skill level. From the boat standpoint Michelle was always on the spot. There was never a towel out of place, a glass half empty, or what you needed not instantly available. The fact is, Michelle is just a VERY nice person, and pleasant to be around at all times. She was warm and made the entire group welcome and comfortable. And, she was pretty funny!

To whom it may concern:
My friends and I had the good fortune to have Kieran and Michelle as hosts on a recent trip to the BVI's. As someone that has done many charters with crew and without in the BVI's I can say they were extraordinary relative to other crews. Their attentive and helpful styles made our 5 day charter very special. As an experienced diver I found it particularly helpful to have Kieran and Michelle point out special dive sites and provide good company as dive buddies.
Post my trip with them I reached out for dinner as I wanted to stay in touch.
I am looking forward to sailing with them again.
Please contact me if you should have any questions.
