Crew of DESTINY III|Chef Chef

Captain: Scott Higginbotham

Scott and Cara hail from the Miami area.
While always enjoying the pleasures of the sea, they have been boating the waters of Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean for over 40 years. Scott's part time job while in high school was as a mate on a fishing boat on Miami Beach.
They both fled from their successful corporate jobs 16 years ago to move to the Virgin Islands and sail the Caribbean. After five years of chartering in the Caribbean, they returned to their home state of Florida. They have spent the last 11 years cruising and running charters in the waters of the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.
They are happy to show you the Bahamas. Their personal experience and knowledge - including the top water play and party spots - are a bonus for any guest. They have run hundreds of charters over their years of being professional captains and are well known in the charter business. They ran a very successful marketing campaign as the Captain/Crew of the Heineken yacht and have also captained larger motoryachts on trips from Maine to the Caribbean.
In their off time, they are either traveling around the country in their antique Airstream trailer or riding their motorcycles. They also own a Bed & Breakfast in the North Carolina mountains.
Scott and Cara are both U.S.C.G. Captains. They make for a dynamic team whose fun-loving strengths will ensure that you have the most memorable vacation of your life. They look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Alternate Captain and Chef - Dave & Trish Calvert:

Captain Dave Calvert has been sailing for more than 40 years. Over this time he has logged over 60,000 miles of ocean sailing on boats he has owned. In addition to this, Dave has been a world-class racer, winning over 14 National Championships on catamarans and trimarans. Dave also was crew of Steve Fossett's 125 ft. mega-catamaran, PlayStation. During 2001 and 2002, as a driver onboard, he helped to set five world records including both Trans Atlantic records and the 24-hour speed record.

Dave has owned and operated Calvert Sails for over 37 years and continues to design and manufacturer world-class multihull and monohull sails. So, if you want to feel confidence in a skipper, Dave is your man. He is a current holder of a US Coast Guard captain's license with all Bahamas charter permits.

Also, if interested in learning how to sail or cruise, Dave is always willing to let you help trim the sails and take the helm. With years of sailing the Bahamas islands, Dave and his wife Trish know these islands intimately and will make your Bahamas cruise one to remember.

Trish Calvert is the first mate and chef aboard Destiny III. She has been sailing with Dave for three decades. During this time, she has also logged many thousands of miles along the US east coast, Florida Keys, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Islands, Dominican Republic and Caribbean Islands to Trinidad. She was a sailing instructor for windsurfing and Hobie Cats, running one of the largest water sports companies in the Florida Keys. She has a love of cooking and is well-known for her culinary creations.

Scott & Cara - October to May each year
Dave & Trish - June to September each year

Aug 7-11 2020 The Keys Once in a lifetime trip
Feedback for CA

Best memory?

There are so many. Everybody’s favorite memory was when Captain Dave pulled out his guitar and we did a little jam session/open mike and we did a little bit of adlibbing. Capt Dave is a phenomenal guitar player. Joe and Steve took turns making up lyrics singing in blues style about being on the Destiny three, we called it the Marathon blues. We could not stop laughing!

Best snorkeling site?
Most of the main reefs were over packed, so he took us on ones that were less packed, we went on three different trips and they just got better every single time.
They were all phenomenal, Captain Dave definitely knows where to go.

Best activity?
Feeding the tarpon, snorkeling and eating. Chef Steve is amazing. They both made the trip very fun and personable.

Best things about your crew?
They were very personable, but also gave you space and time with your family when needed. We had dinner aboard every night which was awesome. Dave helped us with the excursions and directed us on things that he thought would be fun for our family. The food was incredible, our first dinner was the mahi-mahi which was everyone’s favorite. They both treated us as though we were family from the beginning to the end. Dave knew so much about the different areas history and culture which was impressive.

Anything special to mention?
It was more than any of us could have ever imagined! This was by far a once in a lifetime trip. And thank you to Captain Dave and Steve for making it so memorable



November 2018 - So Much Fun!!
We have traveled by personal airplane to all the major Islands in the Bahamas and even rented power cats in the Abacos but we always wanted to go to Conception Island. It is just south of Cat Island but is only accessible by boat. Dave and Trish were great, they even let us bring our small dog along that played well with their dog Gigi. It was an unforgettable excursion into a large creek full of turtles, fish and conch in beautiful clear blue waters. Not to mention the multiple beaches, the birds, and the walks in this uninhabited natural reserve we even saw a cool fresh water well. Dave parked the boat so we could snorkel right off the back of it which we did multiple times. It’s a protected marine and land park which might be the reason I saw some of the largest fish I have ever seen in the Bahamas grouper, trigger fish, even a large black fin tuna plus a few harmless nurse sharks. We also got to snorkel another spot by dingy that had some of the largest and most colorful coral fans I have ever seen. Dave is an expert sailer and sail-maker of beautiful carbon fiber sails and has intriguing stories to tell. I must have asked a thousand questions about sailing and he really enjoyed explaining it all. He will even let you help out as much as you like. Sailing a power at was way cool. Trish his wife is fun and entertaining . The boat was super roomy and very clean. The meals were great. If you have a chance it is a trip of a lifetime
Family trip in Bahamas 25-29 October 2018
What a wonderful time we had with you aboard Destiny II. It was planned as a research trip but turned into so much more - a fabulous vacation that allowed us all to reconnect as a family. It is clear that you worked super hard before the charter to pull everything together, which is greatly appreciated. Thank-you for doing such a great job of showing us the Islands, we really packed so much in during the five days with multiple stops per day, (but still plenty of beach time) - thank-you Matthew for your endless patience with all my questions. You clearly have a great depth of knowledge of the Bahamas.

You were both so kind with the children and gracious in your hospitality. And although I understand provisioning is difficult in the Exumas (and you didn’t have much notice for our trip) every meal was delicious and the menu was well planned. The beach bonfire on the last night topped it all off - the kids have not stopped talking about the ‘Smores’ - what a lovely finish to the trip.
Truly Magical!
Dear Jennica & Matthew, From the sailing and snorkelling, to the exploring and wonderful meals, you thought of everything. We loved getting to know both of you. You made our vacation truly magical! Thank You so much for everything! – XO, Valerie, Greg, Katie and Blake
A Peak Experience!
Captain Matthew and Chef Jennica are amazing hosts! My husband and I felt so welcomed and all our needs and wants were anticipated by our hosts. We were so comfortable and well fed! Chef Jennica really knows how to put out a lovely melt-in-your-mouth meal! All in all we had a fabulous time on beautiful yacht with wonderful hosts in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet, Exuma Bahamas. Highly recommended!!! – Taj
Spectacular!!
I have to tell you this was an awesome trip!!! The boat is spectacular, clean and luxurious, with all the added modern needs, like your own ensuite ,wifi and surround sound, while cruising in the Bahamas. The fresh food was delicious and healthy. The Vitamix makes great pina colada and juices too! Thank You!! Jennica and Matthew for being such great hosts, that made us feel safe and relaxed on such a great big Ocean Adventure! If you have never been on a boat in the Caribbean then you should try it!
– Michelle
Far Exceeded Our Expectations!
Dear Captain Matt and Jennica, Thank you for an amazing stay aboard. We fell in love with Exuma Islands during our stay, many thanks to you for showing us the treasures and gorgeous secrets these islands hold. The adventures and togetherness our families experienced far exceeded our expectations. Thank you for keeping our families safe during our travels. Jennica, your cooking is spectacular! All six of us ranging from ages 8 to 52 loved your creations you created from scratch. You spoiled us and we loved it! We will surely miss your lasagna, as well as the two of you! We hope to sail with you again!
– Sincerely, Holly and family
