Austin Marshal is from Greenville, S. Carolina, and loves all things “in and on the water”. He spent many hours on the lake near his home in Greenville, South Carolina fishing, boating, wakeboarding, and diving. While on a family dive vacation in the BVI, Austin realized his “training” on the lake could actually turn into a dream job on the islands.
After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in business management, Austin went on to complete his US Coast Guard Captain training and promptly headed back to the BVI. With his easygoing, well-rounded personality he soon got a do-it-all job with a large charter company on Tortola which provided a hands-on crash course in all aspects of the charter yacht business – from dock work and yacht maintenance to private and large group sailing and dive excursions.
CHEF / FIRST MATE
Having completed a law degree in Scotland, Philippa, who was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, embraced her love of travel. She initially moved to Portugal and worked for a couple of seasons in a shore-based dive centre where she honed her underwater skills and found her sea legs. The next obvious step was a long passage to the warm waters of the Caribbean where she spent the next 14 months in the BVI, working as a Dive Instructor on a 105 ft sailing boat.
The BVI is the premier yacht charter destination in the Caribbean with very good scuba diving for all levels of divers. Virgin Islands boat charters Flying Ginny will be happy to escort you on your BVI dive adventure.
