Captain Dylan and Chef Gi have an enthusiasm and passion for life on the water. With their easy going charm and love of hospitality, your trip aboard is sure to be that of a lifetime!
Captain: Dylan Fairfield
Dylan guides you to perfect bays and secret spots, pairing your expectations and his knowledge to make exploring the Islands all the more enjoyable. Nothing is too much for any of his guests, be that sun tanning on the flybridge with a cocktail in hand, or getting you involved in sailing Odyssea.
Dylan grew up sailing the Indian and Atlantic Oceans with his family, totaling 20,000 NM over six years, having left his home of South Africa at age 6. Fully qualified and commercially endorsed as a MCA/RYA Yacht Master Offshore 200GT, he has a full STCW and is a certified PADI Dive Master.
Chef/First Mate: Gi Van Zyl
Gi grew up in Mozambique, a country on the east coast of Africa, famous for its tropical beaches, fresh seafood and Portuguese influences. At 16 years old she began leading guests on private safari tours where she specialized in identifying birds and expanded on her knowledge and love of animals. Later on she would discover her interest in local and international cooking, learning from seasoned chefs operating within the Safari. In 2017 she made the decision to advance her skills by completing the Capital Culinary School Diploma in Professional Cookery, affording her the opportunity to return to Mozambique to delight guests with her refined culinary skills. She now looks forward to welcoming you aboard Odyssea and creating delicious meals for you and your friends and family.
Both Dylan and Gi enjoy families and children, and aim to maximize the fun and adventure in each charter, whilst providing a relaxed atmosphere for you to unwind. They are great at creating a vibe and throwing a party, perfect for couples or those looking to visit in island style! They believe that attention to detail and personal touches make all the difference! This is part of what sets them up as a top crew in the Islands.
They both look forward to making this vacation everything you hope for.
