Crew

Andre and Alison Stroebel are from South Africa and have been married for 32 years. They love the sea and are either on it, in it or under it. They started sailing together even before they were married and raced Hobie Cats as a hobby. Soon they started sailing larger catamarans off the unpredictable east and west coasts of South Africa. In 2011 they left South Africa on the Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro Yacht Race on their catamaran Rat Catcher, crossing the Atlantic and ending second in their class. Since then they have been cruising in the Caribbean and are excited to share their experiences with you. They are both qualified SSI Dive Masters...

July 2021

This trip is something I personally had wanted to do for a long time and I'm so happy we picked Andre & Allison to share the Turquoise Turtle with us for 7 days. From the original planning they were helpful in navigating all of the Covid testing requirements and planning our food of course as well as activities and diving.
To start with, the food onboard the Turquoise Turtle is gourmet dining 3 ...

Safe and Stress Free Vacation

Safe and Stress Free Vacation
We loved our time on the Turquoise Turtle. We are so happy that we lucked into chartering with Alison and Andre. We traveled with 2 kids 9 and 7 and our parents. Andre makes it look so easy and Alison is busy making sure every need is met. We enjoyed snorkeling with them and they were great at pointing out wildlife and sharing information about the area... the kids (...

A truly remarkable trip

A truly remarkable trip with Andre and Alison! Snorkeling at multiple reefs each day with plenty of support spotting the remarkable reef life. Beautiful calm crossings and stays at multiple private coves each with their own story and numerous with beach bars and hiking trails. Plus spectacular meals on board! How Alison whipped up the variety she did remains a total mystery... she even cooked sep...

Don’t think twice and go.

Me and my husband just got back from this dreamy vacation, celebrated our 14th and let me tell you I’m a Panicker and was very sacred to do this trip 🤣 I'm that person that’s scared of sharks, deep waters and getting sea sick. Boy I was wrong! I came back a changed person lol I enjoyed every bit of it. From waking up to beautiful ocean views to going to sleep outside watching the beautiful stars ...

St Barts Magic

Just returned from a great New Year's week aboard the Turquoise Turtle with the most wonderful hosts: Captain Andre and First Mate/chef Alison! They met us in St. Maarten with big smiles and a warm hug and after our "briefing" off to St. Barths, we sailed. Our family of 5 enjoyed the week spent sailing around the northern Leewards, relaxing, diving (especially great dives in St. Eustatia and Saba)...
