With Virginia and Jamie moving over to the charter catamaran MATAU that we mentioned in a previous post, you might be wondering about the new crew for catamaran TRUE NORTH.

Whitey and Max have many years and miles of chartering throughout the Caribbean. This past year has taken them from Venezuela to Antigua, St. Maarten and the BVI, as well as a passage across the Atlantic followed by a great land trip through Portugal, Spain and on to Mallorca. During their travels they always seek new ideas to help them continue to offer guests a fresh, yet high standard of service, in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

In addition to all the water sports, you can expect to get in some great scuba diving from TRUE NORTH. Whether you are certified or just wanting to try it out, everyone can expect safe and interesting diving with Whitey as their PADI Dive Instructor. The one dive that Max doesn’t pass up is the one with the two seahorses in the BVI – she seems to be the only person to locate them consistently, which is always a thrill to their guest divers.

Of course, providing fabulous service on TRUE NORTH requires a great team. We are happy that Sara Manning is staying on board as stewardess for a second year. Sara comes from a boating family and has a great enthusiasm in chartering. They are currently interviewing for an experienced Deck Hand to round out the team. You view crew profiles on their online brochure.

We received an email from Max, introducing herself & Whitey:
This is Max here of True North. We are excited to be moving on to True North and look forward to meeting and seeing you in Antigua.

Yes, it is true we will be actively diving from True North. It's a passion of Whitey's, the Captain. He is a safe, competent and very patient dive leader and instructor. Plus, Maxine is a Dive Master.

Diving for certified divers is at no additional charge. We do not set any limit on the number of dives with our guests. Whitey assesses their abilities and the schedule and other activities for the boat that week and then plans the diving accordingly.

Any instruction is at an additional charge: $250 for referral open water course, $250 for resort course. For any other instruction, please inquire.

True North has 8 sets of regulators and gear. There are 8 tanks and a dive compressor.

Regarding the calendar, the plan is to be in the BVI's through May and to go down island in June 2010. We have been diving in the BVI's for years and know lots of great dives there.
We look forward to visiting TRUE NORTH soon.
