Captain Emily

Captain Emily has been an incredible team member and has gone above and beyond by spending multiple days on Lana'i for Storm watch. She single-handedly Captain-ed TRILOGY I from Lahaina to Lana'i at night with an approaching Kona wind cold front and did it with a smile.

Emily has been a big help with the introductory nights of the New Deluxe Ka'anapali Sunset Sail. She provided fantastic insight and an amazing experience for our guests, who have been completely blown away with the new tour.

Emily has done a great job as Mate of Record for TRILOGY I, which is no easy task and now has been promoted to Captain of Record for TRILOGY ELUA. Her attention to detail, passion for boats and the ocean, and many friendships with other operators in the marine industry are admirable.

Captain Kevin K

Captain Kevin has worked for Trilogy for over 16 years. Kevin started out as a SCUBA Dive Master and instructor for all the trips. However, soon he fell in love with the Kaanapali tour and Trilogy 4. Kevin then got his captains license and worked his way up to a driving captain and eventually Captain of Record for Trilogy 4.

Most recently, Captain Kevin has taken over the responsibility of scheduler (no easy task!) and has done an excellent job! His effort to be responsive and amenable to dozens of schedule requests a day has been noticed and appreciated by all.
 
Kevin is dedicated to his work, loves his job, and as a Person and Professional is always striving to be better. Kevin provides constant feedback for quality control with the caterers, has developed and continued many new and creative solutions such as a paper-free prep list, and is very supportive of the efforts of Trilogy over all the years. And, if you’ve ever worked on his boat, you know that the guy keeps his vessel extremely organized and always stocked. As a Captain, Kevin provides very clear instructions to his crew and always keeps the big picture in mind.
 
“I see the boats much like a live-performing orchestra. I don’t want to tell the crew how to play their instrument, I just want to conduct the orchestra to make sure the “music” sounds good!” –Capt Kevin
