Often, the people make the adventure. Or, at the very least, complement it. The crew of Segue are divers, adventurers and world travellers. We like to have fun and will help you get the most from your excursion. We look forward to adding you to Segue’s long list of friends. 


Colin Dykstra, Skipper

Colin has been cruising and racing sailboats all his life. As Captain of Segue for five years now, Colin has logged tens of thousands of blue water sea miles and been to some of the most exotic cruising locations on the planet. Colin knows the entire boat and its systems intimately. A perfectionist, he ensures those systems are fully operational at all times. In addition, Colin is an expert in marine navigation, marine safety and weather forecasting. With his proven track record and optimistic demeanour, you couldn’t ask for a more competent or experienced skipper. He’s also a pretty good backgammon player.
