Capt Ross Lysinger


Ross Lysinger was born in Newport, Rhode Island with salt air in his lungs since birth. He began sailing in Annapolis, Maryland when he was 6 years old and was winning at single hand racing by the age of 10. Throughout high school and college, he raced and cruised a wide variety of boats both as skipper and crew including his first week in the British Virgin Islands at 16.

While obtaining a B.S. in Marine Biology and a M.S. in Marine Science, he spent many days on board research vessels and hours underwater as a research diver.

With a 100 ton USCG masters license, he both skippered full time and delivered yachts throughout the western Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Eastern Pacific. This included 6 years based in St, Thomas on a 72 ft ketch. As owner’s representative and Captain of Palawan (Little Harbor 75 ft custom sloop), he oversaw the construction and then sailed this yacht for 5 years with many high profile guests. He has also skippered motor yachts and commercial vessels to 150 ft. He enjoys taking guests to “secret spots,” helping them with understanding the marine environment and teaching as much sailing and navigation as his guests would like to learn. For the last 5 years, Ross has been operating his own charter business, Active Cruising, specializing in niche yacht retreats and repeat private groups in The BVI, Cuba and the Bahamas.

Include a short bio with an interesting fact about the person.

Capt Dawn Marie Rossiter


Dawn Marie was born with a natural love for the outdoors. Being raised along the Rio Grande in the enchanted state of New Mexico is a blessing she will always be thankful for. Exploring, rock climbing, wakeboarding, hiking, dirt biking, backpacking, and scuba diving were a few of her favorite past times. Always seeking to indulge in as many exciting sports and hobbies she could get her hands on, has shaped her into the adventure seeker you will meet today. The Caribbean has become her backyard and she can't seem to get enough. Her knowledge of all the best spots around the U.S. and British Virgin Islands lays the foundation for a carefree and magical vacation experience you won't forget.
