John Garza

100 Ton Captain, Professional Photographer & Videographer, Freediver & Divemaster

Captain John, a long-time environmentalist, wishes to create a sense of compassion towards the ocean by infusing his passion for diving and marine exploration with images of the sea's unique beauty. John's photography has graced the covers of many well-respected magazines, advertisements, and eco-advocacy campaigns. As an avid Free Diver, Scuba Diver, and Professional Photographer, he strives to educate people about the environments of our oceans through creative outlets.  

Through his next endeavor as the captain of Purely Blu, his goal is to change the way people view and interact with sharks and marine wildlife while inspiring others through his life aboard Purely Blu. 

Hannah Patten

Chief Stew & Cuisine Specialist, Founder of Hülya Swim, Freediver & Divemaster, Photographer & Videographer

In addition to her day job as our Chief Stew Hannah is also the founder of Hülya Swim, an eco-friendly swimwear line. Four years ago, she quickly grew tired of the overwhelming amount of plastic in the oceans and waterways. This inspired her to create a bikini line that includes recycled plastics from the ocean. The Hülya collection is inspired by Hannah's experiences with the ocean. It's integral, therefore, to choose fabric that will not pollute the ocean. 

From island to island, day to night, breakfast to lunch, lunch to dinner, and cocktails into the wee hours, not only will Hannah act as your guide, but she will also act as your personal chef who can expertly prepare local, sustainable seafood. Through all of her efforts aboard Purley Blu, an eco-tourism yacht whose mission is to "Dream, Discover, Sustain”, Hannah hopes to inspire and educate guests on how to not only live their own personal life sustainably but be good patrons to the planet and ocean.

Olivia Miller

Stew Intern, Founder of Mano Collective, Junior at University at Hawaii, Freediver & Divemaster

Olivia Miller grew up as a dancer and skier in Montana before studying marine science with an emphasis on sharks and cartilaginous fish at the University of Hawaii. She also enjoys freediving, scuba diving, and ocean exploring as part of her university studies as well as personal passion. She is combining her studies and education with her work aboard The Purely Blu as our Stew Intern. 

As an Intern Stewardess, Olivia will educate guests on marine and wildlife while sharing her passion for sharks and scientific research. She will also create an inviting environment for passengers while helping to prepare breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, bar set up, assist the Captain in navigation of the sailing yacht, and other duties to ensure that our passengers are well taken care of all while managing her remote studies and managing her shark conservation organization Mano Collective. 


Mascot, Lobster Diver, & Comfort Companion

Coral is a product of the Southeastern Guide Dog program – an organization committed to training guide dogs for people with visual impairments. However, after she was born with a visual defect of her own, Coral was deemed a non-working dog and was adopted out to Hannah, as a playmate and friend. She now proudly serves as our sailing yacht’s mascot.

Coral is a dream dog. She just has a thirst for knowledge and is continually learning new tricks. Her favorite activity is to go for rides on the boat and to go for swims in the ocean with John and Hannah. Coral loves swimming in the ocean water, and she even catches conch and lobster with her mouth.
