Over the next eight years, she kicked her way as a Rockette throughout the entirety of the US, and joined music video & television productions with the likes of Pitbull and Beyoncé. After her performing career, Elizabeth transitioned to the event planning industry, where she got to show off her natural knack for organizing and creativity. With the “mainland experience” out of her system, it was time she moved to the islands. First up -Maui! Here she worked on day charter boats where she met the love of her life, Captain Mayon. For the past three years, Elizabeth has been the chef, first mate, hostess, and ringmaster of fun for all ages. She receives rave reviews for her culinary delights, cocktails of the day & entertainment tours, all while ensuring Captain Mayon has a reliable deck hand to guarantee a safe passage.

Mayon and Elizabeth fell in love on the beaches of Maui, Hawaii as two young, adventurous, ocean lovers. Lucky enough for them both, their fist encounter was as unknown roommates who happened to move in under the same roof of a mutual friend. At first sight they knew that keeping the social norm of “don’t date your roommate” was out of the question!
Their kindred spirits attracted them together from the very first night they met, where an impromptu sunset sailing trip on Mayon’s Hobie 18’ took them well into the night. After their “love at first sight”, the duo went on countless more Maui adventures before moving aboard a Cosmos 49’ catamaran in Thailand. After sailing that boat to Sri Lanka they solidified their joint dream of running their own charter boat and started their career together as captain and hostess.

CAPTAIN: Cameron Channing
Cameron grew up between the coast and the farm lands in South Africa. Having access to both of these elements ensured he grew up with a passion for both the sea and the soil. His younger years were spent with his two brothers on a family-run safari game lodge in the bush. As you might imagine being on a safari outside of a city forces you to become resourceful and teaches many life lessons from a young age. Having grown up sailing and fishing, Cameron has always loved the water and therefore decided to pursue a career in this space. Shortly after he finished school, Cameron began working as a deck hand on Super Yachts in The South of France where he learned the true meaning of “ship shape”. Although this was a great entry to the industry, Cameron saw brighter things in his future than the stainless steel on a Super Yacht. His desire to be behind the helm landed him a seasonal Captain’s position working for a large flotilla company in Croatia and Montenegro. Cameron continued to chase the summer by working as a sailing instructor and a safari guide back in South Africa once the Mediterranean season finished. It was during one of these summers in the Mediterranean where Cameron met his now fiancé, Jada. Since the initial introduction, Cameron and Jada have been inseparable and have spent the last 4 years working full time as a dynamic Captain and Chef / First Mate duo in the Caribbean.
HOSTESS: Jada Dickie
Jada was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Jada’s first introduction to the world of hospitality was at the age of 14 where she landed a job as a cashier who sang orders at a popular burger joint. Since then, Jada has, proudly, never been unemployed and has had a variety of positions that have ultimately brought her to where she is today. Jada has worked in restaurants, retail, supermarkets, a retirement home, daycare, sports bars and most importantly, yachting. Jada has a Business Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management and she always imagined that she would be running a hotel someday. What she didn’t realise was that the hotel would be in boat form and that she would be working in destinations all around the world and experience a life she could have never imagined. Jada first entered the yachting industry working as a hostess for a large flotilla company in Croatia. Since the Mediterranean season runs in the summer months, Jada thought she had found the best summer job in the world while she was completing her degree back in Canada. Upon graduating, this fun summer job would become a full-time career alongside her fiancé Cameron.
Cameron and Jada met in Croatia in 2017 when they got paired up to work on a tandem charter. Jada tried to win Cam over with her cooking and Cam quickly won her over with his South African accent. Since the time they met they have travelled to countless destinations around the world together and have worked as a full-time charter team in The Caribbean for the last four years. Cameron and Jada have a natural ability to make their guests feel relaxed and at home while simultaneously delivering exceptional service and creating a light-hearted environment. Cameron’s knowledge of the islands is a seemingly endless vault of fun facts. He keeps everyone on board safe while still making sure everybody has fun. Jada has a knack for noticing the unnoticeable alongside her strong hospitality background ensures the ultimate guest experience. She prides herself on knowing what her guests need before they do. She has a kind and gentle temperament making her guests feel comfortable and welcome. Jada loves to curate the perfect cocktails for her guests and makes sure nobody ever goes thirsty. She is an integral part of ensuring the boat runs as a well-oiled machine. Cameron and Jada are thrilled to be your crew on Xandros and can’t wait to help create memories with each person who steps on board.
