Captain Chris was brought up in Spain in a family with a long sailing tradition. At a very young age, he developed a strong passion for the sea which, once combined with extensive sailing experience (including seven Atlantic crossings as well as passages from the Northern Europe or Red Sea to the Med), has made him a reliable and highly professional Captain. Over the years, Chris has acquired excellent knowledge of a wide range of sailing areas around the world.

Together with his partner Natali, Chris has been working in the luxury charter industry for the past eight seasons. Together they have created a reputable team, highly valued by charter guests for their easy disposition, excellent hospitality skills which are a guarantee of a relaxing and enjoyable holiday on board CALMAO.

In the course of her professional career, she has acquired rich experience as a chef on a number of charter yachts operating in a number of sailing areas, including the Red Sea, East & West Med and the Caribbean.
In addition to creating culinary works of art, tailored for the most demanding guests, Natali is very keen on water sports, especially diving and wakeboarding, and will be happy to assist guests with water activities.
Natali is an excellent host who will make it her personal responsibility to provide guests of CALMAO with the highest standard of service, anticipating and being attentive to their individual preferences, making their yachting holiday a memorable one.
Deckhand: Charlie Castelao
Languages: Spanish, English
Having grown up sailing in the northern coast of Spain and being a member of a fourth generation of seafarers, has given Charlie a sound relationship with the tradition of the oceans and an enormous passion for water activities allowing him to travel to different corners of the world while competing in regattas. While finishing a degree of Master Mariner, Charlie has been involved in sailing yacht deliveries and charters in various regions which has helped him to develop people skills and local knowledge about every charter destination. Training a successful sailing team combined with surfing, wakeboarding and diving has helped him to interact satisfactorily with guests during their charter holidays on board.

Calmao Guest Reviews
Dear Captain Chris, Natalie and Peter,
Wow! Our second trip on CALMAO was equally amazing as our 1st, and we will never forget the fun times we had with you in the Grenadines.
Our island-hopping, drone-recorded cliff- jumps, water skiing, snorkelling, fishing (Barracuda), massages, “TOGA Party”, full moon watching, bow riding/snorkel/big waves channel-crossing, recipe-sharing with endless toasts & cheers was much needed to recharge our energy & spirits.
Thank you for becoming part of our forever friendship group, and for being our family-home away from home on the CALMAO!! We feel so blessed to have met the 3 of you! Congratulations once again on your engagement… and best of luck to Peter in his future endeavours! You are all food for our souls, positive feel-good energy that everyone needs in their lives!!! Traveling with the 3 of you has taught us more about life and travel, and most importantly given us new experiences, memories to remember as we age and years go by, and challenged us to grow as humans and take in the beauty of life and travel!! You are amazing inside and out – and we can’t wait to visit you again, wherever we all land – for now we are lucky to have technology to keep us connected!!
Thank you for being as excited to share this week together as we were, for being so thoughtful in all the things you did for us everyday – and always with a SMILE!!! Love your spirits!
Kathie and Kim
Dear Natalia, Chris and Peter,
Our Calmao experience has been everything and then some! From the second we got onto the boat and stuffed our faces with Natalia’s crudités platter to the very last glorious sunset. I can say without hesitation that this trip has surpassed any and all expectations, and because of that my family and I are eternally grateful. The energy on Calmao radiates positivity – from morning yoga//meditation overlooking the ocean to snorkelling and splashing about… not to mention the overwhelming love and devotion that each of you have put in to making our experience spectacular. The amount of hard work that you all have put in is inspiring. The level of fluidity in every task from cooking, sailing and keeping our home for the week pristine is a huge accomplishment in itself. The three of you have poured your heart and soul into Calmao and it allowed for this trip to be one of the most memorable, if not the most memorable we have done. I would like to thank Peter for this constant smile that truly lightened every morning. For showing us the best snorkelling spots, taking the family tubing, keeping the boat spotless, and amazing us with your table setting skills aka napkin origami! To Captain Chris, for making the best gin 3 tonic known to man ; I know Laurentius is in awe of the cocktail spoon. For bringing us to some of the most beautiful parts of the world and always making us feel safe and comfortable at sea. Lastly Natalia, words cannot describe the deliciousness of your food! Your mastery of cuisines is unbelievable, but more importantly the art of you is pure magic. (P.S. the palo santo was heavenly) All in all, we have truly appreciated everything you have done for us this past week and we hope to see you soon :)
Joanna, Laurentius, Chris
Chris, Natalia, Peter!
It was an absolute joy being with all of you aboard Calmao!
You all made my dream boat a true Dream!
Thanks for taking care of each of us!
Much love from all –
Ryder, Joanna, Chris
Thank you for the most spectacular week. Your energy is incredible – the sailing, sights, snorkelling, water sports were fantastic! The food was beyond amazing – I have never had so many unbelievable meals in one week. It was a wonderfully, relaxing week with so many laughs & great memories for the whole family. It couldn’t have been more perfect.
We don’t want to leave!!! This week we felt so relaxed, safe, well nourished, immersed in nature and soothed by your amazing attention to detail – you exceeded our expectations! Highlights for me were fun family meals with Natalia’s incredible cooking, playing in the water, enjoying the peaceful surroundings – Chris always had us in the best spots secluded, with amazing sunsets! And we’re not sure we can live without Peter! His natural smile and positivity made every day extra fun – getting the adults up on water skis, kids tubing, exploring shipwrecks, hiking…
Thank you all!
Chris – you and your crew gave us the best vacation and we will be dreaming of Natalia’s tomato spread
I started planning this trip 3 years ago and had high expectations. They were exceeded in every way. The Food was unreal, amazing spots to spend the night. Could not have been better.
I had so much fun sailing in the BVI. The food was the best I ever have had in my life. Some of my highlights from the trip are snorkelling, eating and relaxing. Thank you Peter for being our first mate and you did a great job bringing as tubing and snorkelling. This is one of my favourite trips I have ever gone on. Chris you did great job sailing us around and we would never have seen such amazing places without you. The boat was kept so clean and the boat was nice.
Thank you very much for the trip.
This trip has been amazing! Chris, you are a good captain. You know all the best spots to go and sailed the boat very well. Peter, you are a great first mate. You did a great job teaching tubing and snorkelling. Natalia, you are an amazing cook! It was the best food I’ve ever eaten.
Dear Calmao Family,
It was an amazing experience to join CALMAO once again. We had built a close and strong relationship that can allow us to call you as a family.
We have been so impressed with you always kindness and devoting to make us comfortable and enjoyable at the same time.
We shared nice experiences but more important than that is that we learned from you how to make everyone close, happy and gathering.
From last year to now you have been even better and we used to sing a song in Portuguese from Gonzaguinha that says „the beauty of always beaing an apprentice”
Peter, Natalie and Chris, our true thank you for this amazing week that we will never forget.
A. and L., congratulations of having been able to put together a combination of amazing boat with outstanding crew!
The charter was great. We were very lucky on the weather, had a like minded crew, and everything was very relaxing.
It was hard waking up this morning amid the hustle and bustle of Houston traffic. Sure missed my morning cup of coffee overlooking the BVIs waiting for a delicious breakfast from Natalie.
Our family had a fantastic time. Your boat and your impeccable service made it a trip of a lifetime. We truly miss being with you and miss being among the beauty of the BVIs.
Thank you again. We hope to be on Calmao again soon.
We have just left Calmao and we are already missing it all!!
As you mentioned before, we would be surprised by the quality of the boat. Everything was amazing: decoration, spacious areas and a special touch in every detail. On top of that, and even more important, the quality and dedication of the crew was outstanding. They went the extra mile to make sure that we enjoyed every second of the experience.
We are certainly looking forward to sail in this boat with this crew again.
These last seven days were a kind of a dream for the whole group. Every single minute on Calmao with Chirs, Natalia and Peter was just amazing.
I’ll promise you a detailed feedback through some of the almost 2.000 pictures we took.
Overall, how would you describe your charter?
Was the crew professional, accessible and accommodating?
The crew was the most wonderful crew ever, great sailing skills, great cooking, great serving
Was the yacht well maintained?
The best yacht we ever chartered
How did you find the quality and presentation of the meals?
Were you satisfied with the cruising itinerary?
Yes, absolutely, but we also said where we wanted to go
Do you have future charter plans, and if so, when?
Sure, but no dates and destinations are set yet.

Last minute plans found us this gorgeous new boat
We were so lucky to be the smartest afloat.
The best crew of Natalie, Peter and Chris
Taking care of our every wish
Charming Natalie cooking the most delicious food
And smiley Peter creating the best mood.
Most importantly Captain Chris
Heading the crew that we will all miss.
Jumping up for turtle spotting
And back to the beach for pirate treasure plotting
Leo’s naked dancing won the vote
Making our own version of the “party boat”.
Henry’s highlight was learning to water ski
And luckily no hospital needed for Teddy’s knee,
The boat definitely proved its worth.
Thanks God Teddy made it back down to Earth!
A varied charter this was set to be
From ages 3 to 73 this Antiguan adventure joining the family
We met as strangers 9 of us and crew
But as time went on our friendship grew and grew.
Young and old we loved it, but good times have to end
So from cold England our Christmas wishes we will send
