MEET YOUR CREW

Nick has been closely connected to water his entire life, growing up on a small island on Lake Superior. He started driving boats at age 11 and has been in love with cruising waves ever since. He went on to get his captain´s license and began guiding tours in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on power boat and kayak trips, eventually moving on to sailing charters.
In the off-season Nick would often escape on his sailboat seeking warmer waters; completing the Great Loop and twice sailing to Cuba and the Bahamas.
Living and working on the water provides the trifecta of endless novelty, challenges and rewards. For Nick there´s no better way to keep life simple yet interesting at every turn, to slow life down and fill it up. Captaining has allowed Nick to meet and share life with people all over the world and he looks forward to bringing his excitement for life to every charter in the USVI.

Madeline brings an adventurous spirit to everything she does. She´s studied abroad, worked and lived in Mexico, Puerto Rico, France & Cuba. While living in Puerto Rico she had the opportunity to sail around the USVI´s and BVI´s. She fell in love immediately with all of the wonders that the Caribbean has to offer.

She has an affinity for Caribbean culture and history and has a passion for cooking and hosting culinary experiences. Besides sailing, Madeline earned her Master of Fine Art in Photography while collaborating with artists in San Francisco and Cuba. She is eager to continue to explore the Caribbean and share in all it has to offer.

Nick and Madeline have traveled widely together, traversing the U.S. on road trips, sailing to Cuba and living in Havana several winters collaborating on artistic endeavors. They both have worked widely in the hospitality industry and love to host friends new and old. As a team they couldn´t be more excited to make 3 Sisters a “home away from home” for all to explore the countless wonders of a Virgin Islands odyssey.

3 Sisters Guest Reviews

´Go with the Flow´ itinerary was just what we needed!!

Our one week on 3 Sisters with Nick and Maddie was so amazing. The memories created were so special and Nick and Maddie were a big part of that. The ´go with the flow´ itinerary was just what we needed and Nick had great insight on where to take us. Maddie´s cooking was delicious - so fresh and flavorful! Our bellies were very happy. :) And her drinks were top notch. Both went above and beyond to make sure my teen was happy and content which my husband and I truly appreciated! Our days and evenings were filled with lots of snorkeling, relaxing, some cruising, Taylor Swift music, gin rummy (sorry Vanessa schooled you, Nick!), fun conversations, and lots of laughs! Some highlights include the turtles at Maho Bay, a close call with a flying ray, tarpum feedings, octupus sightings, and an attempt at cliff jumping! We had such a spectacular time that we are looking forward to our next adventure with Nick and Maddie!!

This was a pure dream for us!

We had the best time on 3 Sisters!
Thank you for all of the amazing experiences! The paddling, the sailing, the snorkeling and the FOOD!
Oh, Maddy I´m going to miss your amazing cooking!
This was a pure dream for us. A time we will never forget and can only hope that we can repeat in the near future!
The BEST way to spend our 10yr Anniversary!

Carpe Diem!

At 60 years old and our honeymoon, it was absolutely amazing! Our first time traveling with my 4 years of sailing experience and my husbands 50 years of sailing experience.
Bar none amazing time with an incredible crew!
When we come to sail again we want Nick and Maddie without a doubt!

A Place Where Families Get Together And Reconnect.

My parents had this vision of creating a place where families could get together, reconnect, share laughs and experience God´s beautiful handy work.

The 3 sisters gives us all the chance to feed the soul and just suspend time for a bit. Words cannot capture our gratitude to Nick and Maddy for bringing this vision to life, not only to our motley crew, but to everyone that comes onboard the 3 Sisters.

This week was beautiful and perfectly times. the food, laughs and new friendships had here will never be forgotten

Amazing Vacation!

Thank you to an incredible Captain and Crew.
Captain Nick ensured a great use of our time and resources,. We saw and swam with sea turtles for the first time; saw plantation ruins from colonial days.

Every meal onboard was Delicious! Even the Kale :) Thank you Maddie for every fabulous meal. Your hard work and concern for our comfort were greatly appreciated.

Overall an unbelievable time!
Great charter with a fantastic chemistry onboard.

Inimitable Grace and Charm!

The peace, the beauty, the sun, the stars, the sparkling water, the kindness and the friendship - we loved every minute and while the boat, the sea and the fish and turtles were unforgettable, you two made it all truly wonderful!

We loved the conversations, the food and the drinks and the total relaxation you provided was a special experience.

Loved how you made my birthday special and took care of us all week.

We wish you two free spirits have much to enjoy in your future adventures and go on learning and growing and meeting life´s challenges with your inimitable grace and charm.
