Captain JP and chef Eden

Intelligence, experience, and good humor. This captain is the total package! J.P. grew up on the West Coast of South Africa in a small town called Langebaan. Being raised on a sailing catamaran, the sea has always been his playground. Sailing, surfing, diving, fishing, and spear fishing run through his veins.

After graduation, JP spent a few years in the mechanical engineering sector, constructing deep space radios. That was cool but, J.P. comes from a family of seafarers and his heart belongs close to the ocean.

This led him to pursue a career in the yachting world. He´s worked every position from technician, deckhand to captain and has sailed everything from a small boat to Super Yachts, with a historic vessel boasting 2 wooden masts and 8 sails in between. You´ll be in good hands with J.P. He has a long list of maritime credentials and a lifetime of practical application. All that paired with how funny this guy is…Guests are in for a really good time!

EDEN BAKER - CHEF/MATE

This woman is a superstar! Her warmth and beauty shine from the inside out and transfer on to others through her kind, assertive nature, and delectable meals.

Eden grew up in Cape Town, South Africa studying dance. After graduation, she accepted a position as a dance teacher in The Seychelles, and there you have it, the spark for travel was ignited. In realizing her love for travel, culture and working with people, she went on to work in the hospitality industry at some of the most exclusive beach clubs, ski resorts and hotels around the world. Working with the elite clientele of these establishments, she learned the proper implementation of 5 Star guest services.

Fast forward to Eden´s life at sea….She´s been working on super yachts for nearly 2 years. She´s newly engaged to Captain J.P. and has completed the appropriate courses to work beside him safely and competently. With her adventurous spirit, keen eye for detail and willingness to go the extra mile, you are in for a treat with this one. Eden´s specialty is using local ingredients, seafood and fresh bread. She describes her menu style as a mix of home cooking, experimentation, healthy and beautiful and she´s ready to serve you up a heaping portion of fond memories!

Escapade Guest Reviews

JP and Eden were great!

JP and Eden were great! The food was fantastic and the service was second to none.
This was our first time on a charter like this and they were very good in handling us first timers.
JP was extremely knowledgeable on the boat. They were both very accommodating to our needs and wishes. We would love to travel with them again!!

JP and Eden are THE BEST crew to have!

JP and Eden are THE BEST crew to have! As soon as our family got on board, they immediately made us feel comfortable and at home. JP was so accommodating if we asked him to take us to certain bays. He knew the area very well and would take us to the best views, beautiful waters, and best snorkeling spots. Every day they would set up floats and rafts for us and pull out the paddle boards. JP even helped showed us how to do it! Every single meal by Eden was AMAZING. It was so nice not having to worry about what the next meal would be. Eden made every meal delicious and picture worthy! The presentation was beautiful! She was also so accommodating to my picky eater kids and made them special meals if they wanted. Drinks were always flowing and delicious! Not only did they both make my family feel so comfortable but they truly went out of their way to make us feel special. We truly felt like they were friends. We hated getting off the boat and leaving them. We will always remember that trip as our favorite! We can’t wait to book another trip and we will always make sure JP and Eden are our crew!

We lived like royalty for the week and can’t wait to do it again!

We had an amazing trip with JP and Eden. Eden is a fantastic chef and all of the meals she prepared were absolutely delicious. JP was a terrific captain/host and very attentive to ensure our entire group was having a great time. In addition to being a very capable captain, he took our kids tubing, was always available to take us to shore at a moment’s notice, and mixed up some amazing cocktails! We lived like royalty for the week and can’t wait to do it again!
