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
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.
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
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.
– Sincerely, Holly and family
