Mayon was born in Maryland on the east coast of the USA with sailing blood passed down from his grandfather and mother. With access to a small sailboat as a kid he has many memorable “learning” experiences as a young adventurous water man in the making. He then went on to finish his childhood on the Big island of Hawaii where he truly fell in love with the ocean. After completing a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering he switched gears back to the ocean and sailed from Maryland down to the Caribbean where he started his career as a boat captain. With the sails up and underway, Mayon exudes the kind of contagious enthusiasm that will have everyone aboard excited. His calm, collected nature and willingness to share his thoughts, techniques, and plans, bring an inclusive and confident feel to the boat. You are sure to feel empowered to learn, explore, and relax while in the comfort of this kind, relaxed, true sailor.

Mayon and Elizabeth fell in love on the beaches of Maui, Hawaii as two young, adventurous, ocean lovers. Lucky enough for them both, their fist encounter was as unknown roommates who happened to move in under the same roof of a mutual friend. At first sight they knew that keeping the social norm of “don’t date your roommate” was out of the question!

Their kindred spirits attracted them together from the very first night they met, where an impromptu sunset sailing trip on Mayon’s Hobie 18’ took them well into the night. After their “love at first sight”, the duo went on countless more Maui adventures before moving aboard a Cosmos 49’ catamaran in Thailand. After sailing that boat to Sri Lanka they solidified their joint dream of running their own charter boat and started their career together as captain and hostess. Mayon and Elizabeth’s togetherness is the solid core on which their charters are built, putting their guests at ease no matter the challenge. They are passionate for the trip they deliver, cultivating a feeling of adventure and well being, that is sure to last far beyond your time in their care.

Thank you so much for this week, I loved it! What I enjoyed most about you was you guys were always trying to make us happy and I LOVE your drinks, food, funniness and sailing abilities. Love you guys! Love, Brenna

Captain Mayon, this has been BY FAR the best vacation I have ever been on>. Everything about ti was new and adventurous! What I loved about you was YOUR HUMOR. I would have expected the captain to be uptight and closed off but you were the opposite. It made me laugh SO much when you saiD GARABAJE and BUH-REN-AH! Thank you for the amazing week and I hope to see you again!
Miss Elizabeth, I can’t physically process how this boat could manage without you. You do so much amazing work around here that I don’t even notice sometimes. I especially appreciated how you go with the flow so calmly and make the BEST DRINKS I have ever had. You are so kind and fill everyone around you with joy. Thanks for hosting us so well and I hope to see you around (plus a ring)!
Chef Sam, you are the most talented Chef I’ve ever met. I really enjoyed all the meals you made and how exotic the food was. I am bummed I didn’t get to know you as much because you were always cooking, but I enjoyed the amount of time we had on the beach. (I also liked having an audience for my sick burns). I experienced the coolest food every day this week so thanks and hope to see you soon!

Dear Mayon, Elizabeth & Sam,
You three made our trip SO memorable1. We knew it would be a good trip because it’s a catamaran and the Virgin Islands, but with you three, the trip was beyond our wildest expectations. Having to make 6 people happy is no small feat, but you guys did it like it was nothing. The way you served us, fed us, entertained us, but mostly were with us, that means the most. You three will always be our favorite crew ever! Come for a visit! -Trey & Amy

Mayon, Elizabeth & Sam,

February 2022 BVI  Charter

I'm writing this whilst gazing at a rainbow! We hoped for a grey morning to leave… but alas!

We had an unforgettable time and it was all down to you three!  You gave us SUCH an experience, but what you did for our girls was truly remarkable.  I’m gonna say that my favorite moment for them was the Baths at Virgin Gorda with the pirate treasure and the folklore - but for me it was the sail to Anegada- ALL the sailing!  Thank you will never quite cover it- see you at the Gorge! And thank you - Brandi 

This was without doubt THE best holiday our family has ever had!  The care and attention Elizabeth, Blair & Mayon gave us was incredible, they really went above and beyond to make our trip a once in a lifetime experience!  We cannot wait to come back!  With so much love, respect and gratitude - Catherine

Thank you for the most amazing week.  I have never seen the kiddos come out of their shell like this before.  They adore you all so much and you created so many memories for them!  Seriously, from Elizabeth in a mermaid costume, Blair giving cooking lessons and Mayon teaching Eva her new favorite game- you guys cannot be topped!  I have loved every moment from this trip and cannot wait for the next.  Thank you for taking such good care of us.  A hui you - Mads

Speechless… well maybe not totally because I can’t get off Aeolus without expressing to you what was one of the best weeks of my life.  The boat is beautiful, the adventures are amazing but you three as a crew were the true treasure.  So many times I whispered to myself “wow”.  The smooth sails, beautiful coves, turtles, mermaids, food, drinks, laughs, tubing, e-foiling… even my cuts & bruises gave me smiles.  You all are now family and we can’t wait to host you in the PNW.  Irie, Nic

Heart filled gratitude for such an amazing trip. My soul needed.  To incredible laughter, food, waves, love, rainbows and care you provided us all… Until next time… May you always find the wind in your sails & love in your heart.  Xo - Kim

-James and Sam



Elizabeth, Mayon, and Sam


What an awesome week. you are the best of hosts! The meals-amazing! The water sports a great new experience and so much more. we'll be back, no doubt.

Over all too soon we depart with only great memories- served by the most congenial of crews, Elizabeth's high kicks, Mayon's instruction on the fine points of reading the sails and Sam's amazing meals on his maiden voyage. Perfection save one point, we gained weight.


Well done Aeolus!


-Paul and Beryl



Elizabeth, Mayon, and Sam


What a wonderful first cat cruise! Setting the bar very high for future adventures, on or off the water. Very confident tutorials for sailing and watercraft. Awesome and attentive crew.

Nov. 23rd 2021


With heartfelt gratitude we would like to sincerely thank you for the amazing week we had on the Aeolus. We feel extremely fortunate to have experienced our time in USVI/BVI on this yacht and with all of you as the incredible crew. The level of service you provided to us and your level of care and concern for our family and your attention to detail with every aspect of the trip was truly exceptional. In my business we always try to train our team members to provide this level of service to build lifetime relationships and lifetime guests – it is never easy to execute on, but you all nailed it.
 
The last two years have been full of challenges due to living through COVID restrictions and protocols, but this trip provided the perfect and much needed respite from these challenges. It is appropriate that tomorrow is Thanksgiving because we could not be more thankful for this trip and for the crew hosting us.
 
Lastly, I would like you to forward this message to the owner of the Aeolus. I would like to let him know that if this was my boat I would feel very fortunate to have this crew on board. The level of care and concern they have for their guests is the same as the level of care and concern they have for your yacht – they treat it as if it’s their own in every way. Impressive.
 
Thank you again for your incredible service and this amazing week in the Caribbean.
 
Best Regards,
 
Doug, Charlene, and Kalenna
