First Mate Leah

As Captain Colin’s wife and co-owner of FlyAway Charters, Leah is usually who you will chat with when you call / text / email / DM on social media!  She is also the one who keeps the show running behind the scenes with her pirate wrangling skills.  Leah moved to St. John in 2013, though her first trip was in 2004 along with many visits to her father, stepmother and little brother (who lived here running a scuba charter boat for several years).  After meeting Colin, Leah fell in love with the traditional sailing culture of Coral Bay she’d come to know and is passionate about keeping it alive through her volunteer position as Commodore in Coral Bay Yacht Club.  Leah has a deep love for the ocean, local history, community and most importantly, the people in her life (Colin, Thatch, fur-baby Scuppers, relatives, the FlyAway Family, friends and islanders).  She gets so much joy from sharing her love of the seas, boating and the history of the beautiful Virgin Islands with all of you.  Leah also enjoys, photography, snorkeling, sailing, diving, hiking, writing, yoga, Tex-Mex and appreciating the world around her.
