PADI & SSI Open Water Scuba Instructor

Emergency First Response Instructor

Kris was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He grew up fishing off the local piers and beaches and had a summer job as a teenager, working as a mate on a fishing boat.

At 19, he began working as a line cook and a couple years later enrolled in the French Culinary Institute. He went on to work as the head chef for restaurants around the world, opening 6 restaurants from NYC to the USVI, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. One of his favorite cuisines is from Thailand, where he spent 5 years as a chef in Bangkok and where he taught scuba diving in Southern Thailand.

While living in St. John, Kris first learned to scuba dive and was hooked instantly. During his final open water training dive, a large dolphin swam up and did circles around him. Kris decided he wanted to spend as much time in the water as possible. He figured the best way to do so would be to become a Scuba Instructor. He worked for several years teaching and guiding dives on liveaboard boats in Thailand, Hawaii, and the Cayman Islands, and eventually worked his way up to becoming a Captain.

In New York City, he operated a private charter boat, running tours around Manhattan and to the Statue of Liberty.

Chef Aneta Siwiec

Originally from Brooklyn, NY Aneta was raised by parents who prioritized travel - she had her first passport at two months old! Growing up in NYC she was surrounded by all the different types of cuisines available to her right down the block. This and her travels have inspired her cooking and love for food. She likes to take inspiration from the surrounding culture and environment. Onboard you will find combinations of Caribbean, Southeast Asian and European flavors. Her dream has been to one day open a restaurant.

Aneta has a marketing degree with a minor in fine arts from Pace University. She has studied abroad in Australia, lived and backpacked throughout New Zealand and has worked in Denali National Park in Alaska. She has circumnavigated Manhattan by kayak, guided kayak trips on the East River, and ran the NYC marathon twice. She is also on track to become a Divemaster before the 2022/23 season. Her most exciting diving experience so far was swimming with Tiger Sharks and schools of Hammerheads in Cocos Islands.

Before joining the charter industry, she had worked in NYC for 5 years as an event and hospitality coordinator where she curated luxury travel experiences and events that went into auction throughout the US. She loves the tourism industry and being involved in creating a memorable vacation for her guests.

Dear Aneta & Kris,

Thank you both for an amazing experience in the BVI’s! We were celebrating my husband's retirement and my youngest son’s 25th Birthday and could not have picked a better location and boat! We visited so many beautiful islands and had many happy hours at the many island bars. The food on the boat was amazing, we had restaurant quality (even better!) for breakfast, lunch & dinner! We were amazed how they cooked all the homemade food on the boat! We will never forget our adventure and plan on returning. 

It was the Vacation of a lifetime! Love to you both and we hope to see you in the future.

We had incredible stay on ScubaDoo and enjoyed a sinful week of absolute relaxation. If you are a fan of incredible food, non-stop drinks, wonderful music, constant snorkeling in the azure waters of the Caribbean, and wonderful hosts, then Scuba-Doo is your thing. Anetta and Kris were absolutely wonderful taking care of our food requests without missing a beat.  The boat is special with everything you will ever want on a floating boutique hotel. 

Looking forward to coming back soon.

I just wanted to let you guys know you made our holiday truly amazing.  From the moment we boarded Scuba Doo we felt very at home aboard.  Karen loved her introduction to scuba diving, she felt safe and enjoyed seeing a whole new world.  The boat was spectacular, everyone loved it.  The only complaint we both had is 9 days is definitely not enough time.  Your hospitality was second to none. 

Thanks for the best sail ever we hope to be back on board Scuba Doo soon.

November 2023 BVI Charter
Thank you for an incredible experience aboard the Scuba Doo Yacht Charter! From the moment we set sail, Kris & Aneta’s warmth and hospitality created a welcoming atmosphere that made our USVI trip unforgettable.

They went above and beyond in all aspects of the trip, from recommending the best snorkelling & dive spots to finding the perfect mooring ball in the cove for us to spend the night. The attention to detail and care they put into everything they do was greatly appreciated!

Aneta prepared delicious and beautifully plated meals & desserts for us each day - accompanied by the ocean breeze, you can’t beat it! Also, a must do on Scuba Doo was setting up the floating dock to enjoy the sunsets while sipping on some of Kris's signature Painkiller cocktails!

And finally, I had the opportunity to complete my Open Water Dive certification course with Kris. He was an amazing instructor, ensuring I felt safe and showed us some of USVI’s best dive sites. We saw a ship wreck, lots of fish, turtles, stingrays, and a nurse shark!

Thank you both again for an amazing trip!
- Nick

We have just returned from a tremendously memorable trip to USVI with Scuba Doo! Kris and Aneta were the most welcoming crew and they had pampered us with delicious food, drinks, and activities. We had always woken up to the fragrant smell of breakfast. You could expect freshly baked waffles or cinnamon buns on the table waiting for you. Kris took us around different parts of the islands and we had the opportunity to see all sorts of sea life as well as landscapes. As a Jack of all trades, he could be a Captain, a chef, and a fisherman. He caught a black fin tuna on our trip and fed us the best grilled tuna steak for dinner. He also made sure we had a worry-free trip as he worked tirelessly around the boat to ensure all parts of the boat are well maintained. There was not a part of the trip I did not thoroughly enjoy and call it once in a lifetime experience. A hundred percent recommend Scuba Doo for your next family vacation!


November 2023 BVI Charter
It's been a week since our BVI catamaran vacation aboard the Scuba Doo.  The vacation high is over, and I finally have time to relay our thoughts. As soon as we three couples boarded Scuba Doo, we knew it was going to be an epic week. Several of us had previously been on a catamaran in the BVI two other times through other companies. We knew what to expect, and what we preferred to do...or so we thought.  

Kris and Aneta - WOW - you two were beyond amazing! Your attention to detail, sharing of stories and finding new places for us to explore exceeded our expectations. We had just enough activities and relaxation times to please the entire group. Snorkeling and floating at the Caves and Indians and also at two coves new to us was perfect. The two divers of the group were able to get their fill of diving without interfering with the rest of the group plans. "Bubbles Up!"  Kris was also patient and attentive when one of us went on a discovery dive for the first time. Aneta and Kris also know their way around the kitchen! We did not go hungry and thoroughly enjoyed all the meals, and treats in the 'Dome of Yum'. Our highlights are The Baths, Conch Island Tour in Anegada and Saba Rock. Kris and Aneta were troopers for our White Party wine tasting dinner and Scuby Doo night. Oh the laughs!  Thank you for a truly magical week!

Kris & Aneta,
Thank you for an amazing honeymoon/family vacation excursion in the USVI/BVI's. The diving & dining experience was absolutely top notch. This was Sonya & Kings first catamaran trip and we definitely want to do this again - and hopefully with you as our crew! We appreciated the attention to detail, hospitality and friendly yet professional approach. We highly recommend Scuba Doo & crew to anyone wanting a beautiful holiday in the Caribbean!

April 2023 BVI Charter 

Kris & Aneta,

You are the friendliest, most capable crew in the Caribbean ☺️ The food was amazing - not only the crazy amazing flavor - but how do you do that in that tiny kitchen?! Cocktail hour was always spot on. No one can agree on what was best, mojitos, Manhattans, passion fruit margaritas or bushwhackers. 

How good was the 50th birthday celebration? Perfect! It is now the birthday by which all other birthdays will be measured. Where else can you get a champagne toast and a light up squid hat? Only on Scuba Doo. 

Diving from the boat every day was a huge highlight. You found dive sites that were a great fit for our group and made it work with all the best island side trips. Your activity recommendations were on point!!! From hikes to dives to cocktails! 

Thank you so much,

Thank you for a beautiful and memorable adventure! This was a once in a lifetime experience that we will remember forever. We are so thankful for the amount of thought places into the location and activities every single day. The hard work and amazing food could never be better. Speaking on Grace & Liam’s behalf, this trip gave them an insight on what hard work and kindness look like. Grace has always wanted to sail, but now more than ever she really wants to! Both of you have made us feel at home even in close quarters. Thank you again for an amazing week and fantastic Easter!
Fondly, Chris, Bridget, Grace & Liam

Aneta & Kris,

Words cannot express our gratitude for all you have done for us. Being our first time on an adventure such as this, we were not sure what to expect. The two of you made this trip truly extraordinary. As a family, we have been fortunate to have traveled to many places. This trip has certainly tanked at the top. You went above and beyond to ensure we got the most of our short time onboard. The experiences you provided; the unbelievable meals (and gluten free!), the sailing, the snorkeling & diving, the wake-boarding, all of it was truly the most memorable. We all so appreciate all your hard work. I am sure as Grace and Liam look back at their childhood, this trip will surely be a high point, if not the highest. With that Bridget & I are so thankful. We all wish both of you all the best in your future.

Sincerely & with tremendous gratitude,
Chris & Bridget

Kris & Aneta,
Another day in paradise! This was an incredible week and time went by way too quickly. I easily got used to the morning swim, endless snorkeling, and the most amazing food. The diving was rich with beautiful coral, fish, lobsters, turtles, and rays. We loved the peaceful sailing, made even more fantastic by the playful dolphin that visited us. The captains’ cocktails were a treat – from painkillers to espresso martinis.
You are both amazing at what you do! You were informative before the trip and your guidance during the trip made everyday filled with fun. Your energy and positivity is a joy to be around! We will miss your home in paradise and are left wanting more! Kiki’s 5th Pirate Birthday Party was the cutest!
This trip was absolutely amazing!

Best Family Trip – I cannot say enough about our excellent experience with Michelle Heyns of Epic Yacht Charters and our crew on the Scuba Doo, Perhaps the best all-around family trip we’ve taken! Booking the charter with Michelle was easy and seamless. She is knowlegable, available and held our hands through every step of the process. Highly recommend! Our family of five (my wife and I and three daughters, ages 15, 12, and 8) chartered Scuba Doo, a 50-foot catamaran, for a week in early March for our spring break. It was PERFECT. The captain Kris and the first mate/chef Aneta were all we could have hoped for. Kris is a top-notch captain and had everything under control on the boat at all times. He’s a skilled sailor and walked us through the plan for each day. He was very helpful with our daughters and skillfully guided them on/off the dinghy when we went ashore. Kris also made some great “captain cocktail” specials for happy hour for the whole family. Really was the ideal captain. Aneta is so thoughtful and somehow turns out gourmet fine-dining quality meals from that tiny little kitchen. Three wonderful meals each day, with great variety. Honestly, the meals were so good there was no reason to have lunch or dinner ashore. My wife and I are sort of “foodies” and we were highly impressed throughout the week. We did a mix of USVI and BVI, which was perfect. Something to do each day – or nothing to do if you prefer! Island adventures, snorkeling, beach days or just cruising. Overall, our week on Scuba Doo with Kris and Aneta was probably the best family trip we’ve had. We very much hope we’ll be able to book with them again!

We will remember this trip forever.

I booked Scuba Doo with Captain Kris and Chef Aneta for my girlfriend and me to get some scuba diving in and to show my girlfriend the BVI.  Kris and Chef were amazing and by the time the trip was over, I believe that I can count them as friends.  The food Aneta made was delicious and Kris was a great dive master/instructor as well as a superb bartender.  Kris and Aneta even went above and beyond to fulfill a special beach bonfire evening that I requested.  You and I both know that the success of a charter is greatly dependent upon the crew of the charter, and I can say this trip was extremely successful!!
Everyone has written about Aneta’s meals and Kris’s Activities and while all that applies, the richness of spending 7 nights 8 days with them was priceless and beyond delightful! It was our pleasure to get to know you both more than just “crew.” You two are rich beyond your understanding and my prayer is that you cultivate that so you can continue to spread your joy with others!
Love you guys!

I am amazed by the food Aneta poofs out of the small corner kitchen – small but mighty! The activities while onboard were pletiful, some lazy & some active – the perfect balance for us. On that note, thank you for resurrecting my scuba career! 25 years dormant!! I will cherish the map and recall each amazing detail when I look at it. This trip has been a dream of mine for years – the reality was even better than I dreamed.
Special thanks to the patience with late rising teenagers, accommodating picky eaters, being Cowboy fans!! and being able to stream the game! Setting up a special birthday celebration and of course for finding fireworks on New Year's Eve.
Thank you!

Kris & Aneta,
First off lets talk about how amazing the food was!! Aneta, you never failed to amaze us with every single meal! Right when we got here everyone fell in love with the charcuterie wraps to the awesome sous vide turkey dinner! Wishing you and your amazing cooking skills could come home with us. 😊
Thank you for all the awesome adventures we got to experience. Some of our favorites were the baths and snorkeling around Waterlemon! Soggy Dollar and Willy T’s is a definite YES!
Thank you for making this such an awesome trip and fun experience. This is definitely one for the books! Y’all are fantastic!
Love the Corsmeiers,

Kris & Aneta,

We had an amazing charter with you through the BVI! This trip was our familys first trip together in 7 years! We really enjoyed the entire trip but daily highlights include: St. John – snorkeling with the turtles! Jay becoming famous at Willy T’s for his backflips, (#backflipboy #willytsbackflipboy). Kris rescuing an eagle ray from the fisherman’s net – good karma for that! Thank you again for orchestrating such a beautiful birthday celebration for Lauren (24!). Aneta is an amazing chef – every meal was a standout! We especially loved the Jerk Caribbean Chicken, Sesame Tuna, and Snapper! Eggs Benedict, Taco Tuesday and the banana pancakes were also a hit.

Thank you so much for the best trip ever!!!

Captain Kris and Anetta were fantastic on all aspects. The boat was amazing - super-comfortable and we’ll-equipped. I loved the layout of the salon, with the u-shaped sofa and middle console. We had all meals out on the deck - never really used the salon but I liked the open floor plan that made it seem more spacious. All of our rooms were comfortable with good mattresses and nice, efficient bathrooms.

The food was delicious - and it wasn’t easy with our dietary preferences and restrictions. All meals were delicious and well-presented. Anetta did a great job making Maddie’s meals replicate ours but vegan. And she even baked a chocolate birthday cake for Lauren (along with presenting her with an bottle of champagne and a map of the BVI with our journey charted on it). So thoughtful. Kris and Anetta joined us for dinner at Saba Rock one evening and it was much fun.

We snorkeled a ton - saw some sea turtles, sting rays, lots of amazing fish, including a few barracuda, awesome coral. Kris helped a fisherman rescue an Eagle ray from his net that Jay and Maddie found while kayaking - a happy ending to a potential for a bad outcome.

We hit great beaches and some of our top must-sees - Norman Island, Willy T’s (where Jay became somewhat famous for doing about 8 backflips from the top deck - people we saw at other islands said “Hey, you’re the backflip dude!”) the Baths, Cooper Island, the bubbly pools, the North Sound, and Caneel Bay.

It was an amazing week and something we will all remember for a very long time. Thank you for everything you did to make it happen and make it amazing.

Kris & Aneta,

Each day was an Adventure – a balm for the soul and an exercise in practicing daily gratitude. You guys make an incredible team! Not only were we well taken care of but we were fed like kings. We are forever changed by this trip. It’s a rare thing these days to stop and disconnect from the fast-paced world we live in and spend real quality time with friends and family. We are glad you were part of this. We will go home a little braver, a little wiser and a lot more grateful!

Here’s to the next adventure!

Kris & Aneta,

After nearly 30 years of putting world and other people first I cannot express what a privilege and joy it was to feel so well taken care of. This whole trip was like a warm blanket (safe & cozy) but a heck of a lot more fun! The sea is most definitely our “happy place” and your hard work and attention to detail really supercharged that experience. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving out family and experience we will forever remember and be grateful for.

Cammi and Charlie,
Thank you, Thank you, thank you! Our week with you on Scuba Doo exceeded all our expectations and created so many family memories! The snorkeling, sailing, Food, and hiking were all amazing. We hope to come back and hope our paths will cross with the two of you again! :)
Thank you

Cammi and Charlie,
Thank you so much for a phenomenal week!
We had an amazing time. Seriously the best cooking I have ever had. Before this trip I would not have said I was a bona fide ocean explorer, but Charlie's snorkeling passion was infectious, and now I would call myself a snorkeling super fan. You guys are the best! Wishing you the best in your adventures and eventual dog ownership.

Cammi and Charlie,
They say that the most valuable asset you can acquire is not tangible things but lifelong memories. As you can see from the above, you have given our family just that. Memories that will last a lifetime. For that we thank you so much-it was an amazing week!!!

Cammi and Charlie,
First of all, "Thank you" will never be able to describe how grateful our entire group is for this pas week. With that being said... THANK YOU!!

Your work ethic and desire to make everything perfect is incredible. Every meal was incredible-delicious, beautiful, filling, awesome! The running joke is that we were never hungry on this trip. We probably ate less this week than we normally do and that was because every meal was perfect. You were also patient, flexible, and understanding with us.
Thank you!!

You are the man! You taught us more about boats, sailing, snorkeling, diving, and reef/sea creatures than we could ever learn in a lifetime. We also asked more questions than we could in a lifetime and you answered every one. I'm still not sure when you were bullshitting us... so I'm going to go with the fact that you just know way to much. thank you for putting up with our shenanigans.
Thank you!!

Great experience, Crew was the best!!

Thanks so much for your hard work.


Charlie and Cammi,

Thank you both for an amazing week! You are a fantastic team and made the week pass by in a blink. It is incredible how a trip can be so fully relaxing and so action packed. We loved every bit-snorkeling swimming, hiking, lobstering, fishing, playing on the water toys, and of course the sailing. Your shared joy of sailing was a pleasure to watch. And then, of course, was Cammi's cooking. We loved every single thing you put on the table.

Perhaps best of all was getting to know you guys a little bit. We loved Charlie's quiet confidence and stoicism. You are a true professional and all around cool guy. And Cammi you have such a warm and engaging personality with the most infectious and joyous laugh. We loved hearing about your unique background and life experience.

Our trip had been delayed 2 years due to covid but alas you made it worth the wait. We are so thankful for an amazing week on the boat with you.

-Brian and Kristin

Charlie and Cammi,

Thank you both for a wonderful trip! IT far exceeded our expectations. The food was incredible... the snorkeling, sailing, and hiking were so much fun. The experiences this week would not have been the same caliber with both of you. Your generous spirits and hard work made it all look easy. Thankful for sharing a piece of your world with us.

Until we see you again
