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...

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 (...
St Maarten Dream Honeymoon
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing our trip was on the Turquoise Turtle. My wife and I were on our honeymoon, new to crewed yacht charters, and didn't quite know what to expect but what we got was a trip of a lifetime. We were greeted at the pickup location by two of the most amazing people (Alison and André) I've ever had the pleasure to meet with big smiles and a hug. Taken to the...
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...

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)...
Wonderful week with Family on Turquoise Turtle!
We (family of 4, 2 children ages 5 and 8) spent a week on board the Turquoise Turtle in February of 2020. Our goal was to have a relaxing, active week and an adventurous experience for the children. If you are trying to find the right charter boat to explore the BVI’s, this is the one.
