Chef Benita Marshall
Captain & Chef Benita Marshall is a flare of bright energy and a lover of sunset swimming & fresh pesto. With 2+ years of experience and upwards of 1000 nautical miles on near coastal waters as well as carrying her USCG Master 100 ton, Benita truly feels one with the ocean and is has surrendered to wherever the waves take her. Hailing from all over the Caribbean with family roots in several islands from Cuba to Trinidad, Benita considers herself “your local island explorer” of food, fun, culture and of course waves.
Benita comes alive in the kitchen and has the best time making art in the galley. With over 5 years in the culinary and restaurant industry, Benita is well versed in various diets and allergies, and believes that whatever you put into your body, should always make you feel better. “Making sure the guests dance when they eat” has always been her thrill and something she looks forward to when preparing delicious food. Benita and Lukata also help operate their local family farms of Meder Mogzit and Greenridge Guavaberry and provide a “farm to table” approach to dining so the freshness and love will always be tasted.
Rising to the motion of the ocean and the light of the sun is always something Benita wants to do for the rest of her life. Benita is a certified yoga and pilates instructor and believes that health is truly wealth, so mindful movement, meditation and breathing are some the things she loves to connect with her guests on. Benita is passionate about feeding the spirit within as well as having fun almost every second of her life, so you probably find her in prayer and meditation at 6am to doing flips off the boat 3 hours later.
Benita and Lukata offer a wide range of activities from farm tours, historic hikes to meeting with local musicians and artists as well as memorable experiences off land for all their guests to take as intangible souvenirs. With their Caribbean essence, Lukata and Benita indulge their guests in a behind the scene experience of culture, food, fun and the true “island life”.
