Life is all about new experiences and dancing in the rain. Memories that last a lifetime. Meghan Ferguson, a self proclaimed Experience Manager, knows how to bring that to life. As a child, Meghan would sail the Caribbean on a charter with her brother and father each year. A sadness would overcome her every time the boat would dock - the vacation was over. So, she decided to turn her love of chartering into a career.

Growing up, Meghan´s mother owned a restaurant in Hidden Valley Lake. She grew up in the restaurant industry and worked in many roles ranging from the front of the house to kitchen tasks. While in college, she focused on strengthening her culinary and fine dining skills. She was then recruited to work for Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment, where they specialized in entertaining guests from start to finish. One philosopher stated, “We have a live audience every night. Attention to detail is key to getting an applause at the end of the meal.´

Meghan´s ´center stage´ charisma furthered her career in the corporate arena as a traveling sales and technology trainer for Zillow Group. This venture enabled her to conduct training customer experience while also experiencing world class restaurants and extending her travel and palate to India, Vietnam, Thailand, Africa and Europe. When Covid changed the world, Meghan spent more time mastering her craft in the kitchen and decided to change her climate to the Caribbean. She worked for Virgin Islands Ecotour as a guide as well as a travel agent before returning to her true passion of chartering.

Expanding on the principles of her education within Culinary Entertainment of ´People come here to celebrate life,´ Meghan excels at understanding her guests´ dietary delights and wows them in presentation and palate. Celebrating life and creating culinary masterpieces for all palates is what Meghan loves to do.

Felicia Guest Reviews

March 2022

Dear Paul and Alexa-

Thank you so much for an incredible week aboard Felicia! Wow— you exceeded our expectations on every level.
Paul, you’re not only a great captain but your bartending skills are pretty epic! I’m still thinking about those spicy margaritas!
Lexy- every meal was excellent and the variety of meals was incredible. You worked tirelessly in the kitchen— always with a smile on your face. Both of you were so patient with us— answering numerous questions, accommodating all requests, closing our hatches when we forgot, and the list goes on and on!
We were expecting the week to be wonderful but the 2 of you made it better than we could have dreamed. You helped us celebrate Tricia´s big birthday in such a fun way— videoing our dance party, letting us hang up decorations, making specialty drinks, providing a birthday cake, and joining in on the fun.
You were flexible with the itinerary when suggestions were made and navigated us through some tricky wind and weather. We always felt 100% safe with the 2 of you in charge. (not sure we can say the same about Mark and Lee’s kayaking skills!)

It really was a trip of a lifetime with our dearest friends and we are grateful that you were our crew! Y’all are a Dream Team for sure and I hope we can return to Felicia in the future!

All our best-
Kristy (and Keith)

We had a lovely week on Felicia, sailing around St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John. The boat was very spacious and had everything we could want in the way of comforts and water toys. Paul and Alexa did a wonderful job charting our itinerary, finding beautiful locations for us to visit, and generally being very hospitable. Alexa’s cooking was terrific, and the meals generally great.

December 2021 - Bequia

We had dangerously high expectations for our trip on the Felicia, but I’m glad to say the week far exceeded our best hopes. We spotted Felicia in the bay the day before we boarded her which was exciting and she looked amazing as we boarded her. There is little more exciting than being aboard her doing 13.5 knots as you dart between the islands

Paul and Alexa were the perfect hosts Paul has abundant energy and is an excellent skipper- very confident and professional. He’s also a superb host which is an impressive combination. He knows the boat, the waters, the islands and the locals and made sure everyday was fulfilling He’s also a very attentive bartender

He is superbly complemented by his ever smiling Alexa If there is a better chef in the Caribbean I’d be surprised Her range of cuisine was amazing and nothing was impossible!

The Felicia was an excellent way to see the islands Whether it was day trips to beaches, swimming, lunch or dinner, each day was an experience. Sparrow’s beach club on Union Island was a great afternoon with a lot of cocktails and lobster

Paul and Alexa, many thanks We shall be back

December 2021

Dear Alexa and Paul,

We had the most wonderful time with you on the Felicia. I was always amazed how you kept your calm - with coping with us old folks!! Getting us on shore - and back on board.

I loved watching the sails go up. So we did the real sailing - cutting the engines - it was awesome!

Alexa is SO the best cook on the high seas. And Paul was such a kind, courteous, and helpful skipper. The best really!!!
We couldn’t of asked for more - I seriously recommend them.

With many thanks,
Bryan & Sara

‘What a great photo, sums it up perfectly - a happy group at the end of a lovely holiday! Thank you both for everything you did for us all. It was a blissful experience being on Felicia - you both have a wonderful ability to understand the varied needs of all your guests and accommodate them all to make a very special experience for the whole group. The sailing was exhilarating (particularly the last day’s sail back from Canouan!), Lexy’s cooking was exquisite. … and the Rum punches always arrived without fail just at the right moment!
It was just the most fabulous week- thank you both very much indeed.
Should you ever make it to Scotland a very warm welcome awaits you!’
With love from us both
Duncan and Hilary

Paul was the captain of Motor Yacht STAR OF THE SEA during some of the period that we represented the yacht on Yachtfolio and CYA. We worked closely on promoting the yacht and especially before and during the charters. Rarely I have worked with such an enthusiastic, friendly and helpful captain. His team respected and appreciated him, the yacht was immaculately kept, his knowledge of the area was fantastic, he was eager to share it with us, and the clients absolutely loved him. Please see the last report from a broker about a very successful New Year’s charter:

Our charter on Star of the Sea has ended, as you know. All went extremely well and my client is really happy about his vacation.
I must say Paul made it happen. It has been a tremendous pleasure to work with him he was always on the top of everything, calm, fast, spontaneous with an amazing attitude, I would love to recommend him and the yacht anytime you need, to any broker you want.
Many thanks again for recommending to me the yacht, and assuring me in advance the crew was phenomenal.
I look forward to working with you again very soon !!
Paul, huge Bravo for everything you did for the guests and for the amazing Captain you are. We need more like you.

Paul is trustworthy and an ideal captain to work with. I could not recommend him more highly and I look forward to working with Paul again in the future.
I would be very happy to confirm this recommendation verbally too.

Paul and Alexa were just fantastic and we had an amazing time from start to finish. The boat was pristine and a perfect fit for us. The food was excellent. Paul and Alexa were so knowledgeable, incredibly kind and patient with our kids, and very responsive to everything we needed.

October 2020

We had the pleasure to sail with Alexa and Paul for a week around a cluster of Caribbean islands called the Grenadines. Before the charter Paul called us and we started to put together our dream trip. As they have lived in the Caribbean for many years they were able to guide our family through the process and set the stage for a very exciting trip for my husbands 40th birthday.
They were delightful to sail with. Fun but relaxed and consistently working hard to make sure we got everything we wished for. Alexa’s food was sensational, happily catering for our young children while also putting on delicious food for my husband and myself later in the evening.
As they have been living in the area they knew all the best spots. Were able to advise us on some terrific restaurants on our nights out and introduce us to some of their friends at some idyllic locations.
We were blown away and have made sure to tell all our friends of what a fantastic family holiday we had.
We will definitely be keeping in touch with Alexa and Paul and are already planning our next adventure away hopefully sooner rather than later.

We had the amazing opportunity to spend some time in Tobago Cays with Paul and Alexa and it was our best charter trip ever! The boat was spacious, well organized and clean! Our hosts were very professional and welcoming, and they made sure we were happy during the whole trip! They organized some excellent meals from breakfast, lunch to dinner and we had an amazing experience and are looking forward to the next one with them!
