DIAMOND GIRL Crew Profile
Captain Tim Smith
First Mate Michael Angelo Lagonia II
Angelo was born in Staten Island NY and shortly thereafter moved to Memphis where he was raised. He has always been drawn to the ocean as if by an invisible magnetic force. The sound, smell, swimming, photographing, fishing, surfing, diving, and navigating have always left the most meaningful memories. Navigation has always been a family endeavor. His father is a pilot but Angelo leaned more toward the allure of boats.
He went to Lyman Ward Military Academy for high school and excelled in Academics and a fierce love for baseball; he was pitcher. He graduated the 2ndin command and achieved the highest rank possible. When he wasn’t at school you could find him with his father hanging out at the airport cleaning their Beechcraft baron twin engine airplane and watching the planes land and take off on the weekends while dreaming about the ocean.
After high school Angelo attended Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado and studied business. After college he worked in the real estate business selling mortgages until he realized there were more exciting and rewarding opportunities. He just needed to get out there take them. He sold his house and car in 2009 and moved to Central America. He landed in Utila, Honduras in 2010 to begin his dive career. He loved the idea of traveling, exploring as much ocean as possible,and breathing underwater. Angelo has taught SCUBA in Honduras, Panama, Israel, and Thailand. Making bubbles is Angelo’s passion and loves taking photos of his adventures.
Angelo believes instinctively that being near the ocean makes us happier, healthier,reduces stress, and brings peace so when he crossed over into yachting two years ago and has not looked back. Yachting has combined all of his passions into one. He began as a deck/stew/crew chef and quickly worked his way up to deckhand, boswain and then mate. He is currently pursuing his captain’s license.

JULY 2014 BAHAMAS
It was the best time ever!!! Diamond Girl is beautiful and amazing... but the best of all was the crew. I can not say enough things about all 4 of them... they are truly amazing individuals and work together perfectly as a team. We have already talked about doing it again with a different location. Exumas was perfect for this trip and all the suggestions Captain Tim made to do were spot-on for us. Chef Jason made things we had never gotten to try before (and only seen on Cooking Channel) and they were delicious! As well as steaks and seafood that were out of this world. I am sure I gained 5 lbs. and am afraid to stand on the scale, but I don't care I would not have missed a bite of anything he made for us. Margaret worked so hard for us and did it with a smile! We kept trying to catch her making the beds, freshening the towels, folding the toilet paper and 100's of other things she did... but she was too quick for us! Probably because as soon as we sat down anywhere we had a drink of our choice coming! (I think that distracted us and it worked). Brandon took us on lots of adventures in the small boat and did some excellent navigating to get us to interesting locations and secluded beaches. Did I mention Captain Tim snorkeled down and got us a huge crab to go with the fish the guys caught? Jason prepared it and we had it all that evening. My only problem was I took WAY TOO MUCH stuff... you don't need it to have a wonderful time... one pair of flip flops will get you anywhere you need to go because you are barefoot on DG. I was not happy putting on shoes to go to work this morning.
Please feel confident recommending Diamond Girl and this outstanding group to anyone... just don't book anybody else for the next week we choose to come :-). And thank you for all your help arranging this trip!
Very best regards,
