Captain Taylor Smith
Taylor grew up in Central Virginia, splitting summers between driving ski boats on the lake and traveling in the family RV to every state with a road to it. After earning a business degree from Appalachian State University with honors, Taylor pursued a passion for living outside of the box. Playing in a touring rock band transitioned to extended trekking in South America, which led to bartending in Breckenridge, Colorado. After a few years of the ski bum life, the dream of setting off for points unknown in a sailboat started to form. He jumped head first into sailing and within a short period he was a licensed captain living aboard and traveling on his own boat.

Captain Mark Duncan
Having sailed since a teenager and fished and hiked from a young age, I have a passion for the outdoor life. Always happy, on, next to or in the water!
After years of operations management in the service industry, I embarked on a world tour for 12 months with Sally. We travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia. My yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean from the Bahamas to the BVI´S and the Windward Islands, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters, and a Transatlantic crossing. On returning from travelling, I turned the leisure activity I love into a lifestyle. After a season as Flotilla Skipper in Croatia, I have now captained various catamarans and mono-hulls, both as employed crew and for 10 years as an Owner Operator. My passion for the ocean and its wildlife, coupled with an extensive knowledge of the Caribbean and particularly The B.V.I. ensures my guests get a thoroughly immersive experience of the islands. I pride myself in giving charter guests an amazing time.

Chef/Mate Sally Duncan
I have always loved sailing. I was put in a boat before I could walk, and grew up crewing and helming various dinghies and keelboats, at racing events with family and friends. In more recent years, I have learnt the joys of larger yacht sailing with Mark at a number of destinations throughout the world, and running our own charter catamaran in the BVI for 10 seasons.
My passion for travel, sailing, cuisine and these beautiful islands and their people, ensures my guests always have a ‘Vacation of a Lifetime´.
Cooking with my Mum from an early age, I graduated in Food Sciences at university. Then developed my skills hosting dinner parties for friends and attending chef courses in the UK.
Guests often comment on how varied my cuisine styles and flavours are.
Protecting our fragile environment is also a constant pursuit, so that all the wonderful nature we have is preserved for the future.
In running various charter yachts in the Caribbean, I have found my ‘niche´. I excel at ensuring my charter guests want to come back again and again, which they do!!

OVERVIEW

Three times winners of yachting industry awards, we gel as a team. Guests comment on our attention to detail whilst being fun at the same time. We plan every charter to our guests specific needs, ensuring you have a bespoke vacation.
With 20 years´ experience and over 300 charters under our belts, we know how to give a great charter.
Our extensive knowledge of the islands and love of nature helps us share interesting stories and facts about them.
We love sailing, snorkeling and hiking together and love to travel extensively ourselves to many different countries. Enjoying great service ourselves we know how to give great service.
We look forward to being your hosts and sharing our passion for this place, where the sky kisses the sand and the sand kisses the ocean.

Ebb & Flow Guest Reviews

TOP NOTCH ! Taylor & Margaret

You guys brought it up to ´TOP NOTCH´...your passion, knowledge, and experience shined through just like the sun. Thanks for the fun ride and safe travels my friends.

Margaret & Taylor - What can we say... you guys were incredible! From a super passionate captain & very thoughtful dive instructor to an amazing chef and dive master, your skills and capabilities were not soon to be forgotten. Although the old folks pooped out easily, you guys were fantastic with the very active teens...way to flex!!! We really enjoyed your hospitality and your company and will certainly miss our time together. Thanks for tolerating the ´f´ bombs (across all ages)!

Until we sail together again, The Kalvenes

BEYOND OUR WILDEST EXPECTATIONS! Taylor & Margaret

Thank you for giving our family an adventure, a bonding experience, and a week in paradise that we will forever cherish! The food was spectacular, the cocktails divine, the SCUBA and snorkeling were majestic, the hiking was amazing, the sailing superb, the games of CAH and Mexican Train Dominoes and Chess and Shut the Box and Uno were so memorable the birthday/graduation celebration was beyond our wildest expectations - and yet, what we will all remember with greatest affection ,love ad admiration is how the two of you approached each moment with such care, thoughtfulness and genuine, heartfelt dedication. And the ferry on the chocolate mousse and apple crumble bakes was also being able to share our stories, our unique holiday celebrations and such joy and laughter together. We are forever grateful - thank you!! ´Shabat Shalom´

Love,

The Lebovitz
