Capt. Phil Patat-Barret

Growing up in London Phil worked extensively within the hospitality industry. His vast experience managing teams in different restaurants throughout London and the quaint English countryside of Kent taught him the high standards of excellent customer care and service he brings to yachting.

Traveling with Florrie to Bali, Australia and California before settling in Antigua where Phil qualified as an RYA yacht master offshore has transformed Phil’s passion in life to sailing. He loves being on the ocean and enjoying the outdoors. Phil has a broad and in depth knowledge of the Caribbean from Antigua to Grenada; and has even completed an Atlantic crossing - an experience and adventure he will never forget!

He looks forward to sharing his passion with guests and taking them around the beautiful Virgin Islands. His favorite part of the day is entertaining guests with craft cocktails and tales of adventures while the sun sets.

With a degree in Marine Science she has travelled and worked extensively in the marine industry, as well as earning her dive instruction certification.

January 2020

The crew for Deep Blue 1 was a lot of fun. Captain Phil was quite the host and really funny. First mate Flo actually has a degree in marine science so she was able to answer all of my questions regarding what I was seeing while snorkeling. I would love to have scuba dived with her – it would have been really cool to dive with someone who is so knowledgeable.

Phil and Flo are awesome. They definitely know there way around the yacht, the kitchen and the islands. I would definitely recommend them and Deep Blue if you are considering booking a charter.


March 2020

That was one of the coolest adventures I have ever been on - and most of it
was because of you.

Thank you again for having the confidence in me to take me to the "Rhone"
and the "Alice's Wonderland" sites.

I was not always completely comfortable but I knew you were there if I
needed help - I had complete faith and trust in you.

I have always loved the ocean but I had no idea what I was missing - I am
going to certify ASAP and make up for lost time. (But I think you might have
spoiled me with all that you showed me)

I loved the Rhone wreck - it was unbelievable - I have seen movies of stuff
like that, but it was nothing like seeing it in person - touching those
brass portholes, the propeller, swimming thru that hole - words can't
describe how cool that was - and that turtle at the end - how could it get
better than that

I felt very lucky to be on one of your top five dives at Alice's -

The color, the Sharks, the rocks and coral and plant life, the great fish,
lobzillas - I wouldn't have seen any of it without you pointing it out

If you guys ever head my way - you are more than welcome to visit/stay with

I am about one mile from the ocean in a great little beachfront town of
Solana Beach California

UCSD Scripps ocean research is right next to me - major marine biology stuff

It was such a pleasure to be inspired by your enthusiasm and love of the
ocean- you are truly gifted at what you do - you inspired me to get going on
my next book - to do exactly what you did for me " open new worlds and
possibilities to others that they did not know existed"

I can't thank you enough..
