Description:

Captain Dennis Wheller and Alyse Arehart are the crew of motor yacht COOL BREEZE, based in St. Thomas.  “We’d like to extend a warm welcome to everybody at the charter yacht show.  Thanks for joining us,” Dennis starts, while Alyse continues.  “Captain Dennis and I are a professional team.  We first worked together in the spring of 2019.  We make a fabulous team, if I may describe it like that.  Dennis has his family on land, and we have a really great team dynamic.  He is a very reliable, very skilled, very experienced captain and engineer, and he is great with the guests; he’s a great entertainer as well; in the evenings when it’s time for people to unwind, he’s a great pleasure to have around, and he has my back, which I really appreciate, always willing to do the things that are directly outside of his realm, as we all are aboard these charter yachts.  He’s always there to help me serve and cook and do dishes and whatever else might come up.  I’m really happy that Dennis has my back.”

“And I’m happy to have her back,” adds Dennis in our November 2020 interview.  “She’s fantastic in the galley, a fantastic culinary artist; I mean her meals are just fantastic every time.  So it’s actually easy for me.  I back her up.  I also have a little bit of experience being a sommelier, so I help with the wines. We put together a fine dining experience aboard ship.”  “Yes,” says, Elise.  “The whole experience is very good.  We have a great team dynamic; we enjoy the vessel, because it’s great for hosting guests.  In the day time we have all sorts of water toys and offer excursions and tubing.  I love to take guests out snorkeling and hiking, whatever might be our guests interest.  And in the night time when it’s time to wind down, it’s really comfortable inside, really spacious; it’s really nice to get the whole family or components of your party onboard, and have family night; have a nice dinner.  We make daiquiris and offer a whole bunch of games and fun activities.”

Dennis’s favorite area onboard is the fly bridge.  “The sun pad area enables guests to lay out in the sun; it just makes a great area for the guests to enjoy, being outside, seeing the sun while we’re underway; and when we’re back on anchor.  The next place that’s my favorite is the foredeck.  There’s space to put out the sun pads.  It’s where we keep the paddle boards, snorkeling gear, tubing.  We do lots of activities.  It’s a great space to jump off and do a lot of fun things.”

Alyse says, “I agree with both those statements; I’m going to have to confirm the sun pads; we have a big beautiful sun pad on top and people love being on the fly bridge; it offers a beautiful view; and the great thing about the sun pad is it’s just so big and comfortable; whole families all six or seven pile on top of each other there, and it’s a great spot.  We installed a really nice teak table there recently, so we expanded that area to be more accommodating for hosting cocktail hours and happy hours, so we can throw a big party upstairs.  We have the electric ice maker up there now; we’ve got the components to set up a bar; it’s a really nice extra entertaining space.”

Dennis says, “Half of it’s covered in shade and the other half is in the sun. It turns out to be an excellent entertaining area, and our owner is responsible for the fitting out of the upstairs to accommodate our guests.”  Alyse agrees.  “The owner is very invested in the running of this vessel.  He’s an okay boss.”  “Yes,” says Dennis.  “You have a great owner, you have a great experience.”

Regarding Alyse’s cooking skills, Dennis says, “I have to jump in there.  I’m kind of a fine diner myself, and I am a seafood lover except scallops to the point that I just don’t order them.  However, Alyse captured my taste buds for my least favorite foods; scallops are now my favorite.  She kills the scallop dish; the texture is perfect; the flavor is perfect.”

“I sear; I use butter,” Alise pipes in.

“So she’s taken one of my least favorite dishes and made it my favorite.  So I’ll have to start there, for sure.  Then of course, she’s really very adaptive to her menu and very creative,” Dennis says.  “She listens to what the client’s likes are and more importantly even their dislikes, so she has a great way of getting it right, and her presentation is so beautiful; it’s like you want to eat it; it’s gorgeous.  The visual is beautiful but the aroma will get you; you will have to dig in, for sure.  She makes for an overall wonderful crew.”

Alyse says, “I’ve already said a lot how great it is to work with Dennis, but he instills a lot of confidence; he exudes experience and knowledge, so I think people feel always like they’re in good hands with Dennis in command, and that they’re in knowledgeable hands too.  Like we understand the islands, itineraries and how to navigate the islands here.  We make sure guests are getting a tailored experience.  As skilful as Dennis is, he’s just an upbeat personality; he handles business, but at the same time, he is chill at the same time; he makes it easy, he can talk to anybody about anything, he’s very open minded, and people like to converse with him.  He’s an interesting guy.”

“Thanks!,” Dennis says quickly.

Elise says, “That concludes our interview.”

Dennis concurs.  “Thank you for tuning in; hopefully we weren’t too chatty and verbose, but this is what we do; we love it, and we hope to have you join us.  Thanks for watching.  Thank you.”
