Felix Crew Profile
MEET YOUR CREW FOR THE 2022/23 SEASON
Zack and Taylor met under the sunny skies of the US Virgin Islands. While enjoying the last days of vacation in the islands, Taylor swam up to the stage at the famous Rock the Boat event and just happened to catch her eye on a handsome Captain Zack. They struck up a conversation that would open up a world of adventure and inspiration that continued beyond a simple vacation. Taylor then moved down to the islands in short order. They shared many adventures, island hopping, and discovering the hidden gems of the Caribbean. Then they hopped in Zack´s camper van and drove around the US appreciating the modern American art form of craft beer, moving from wild spaces to far off places.
Growing up in Ohio, believe it or not there is water up there, Zack began boating as boy, on a little lake just outside of Cleveland. Here the tide began to turn on the rise of the ocean as the centerpiece of his life. His father taught him handling, and his mother taught him patience.
Fast-forward past the “formative” years to the beginning of the wandering ones. Zack first began sailing in St Augustine, Florida 5 years ago on the Schooner Freedom. Coming from a service industry background, the transition to charter sailing was quite suitable. Learning to sail on a traditionally rigged vessel gave a great appreciation for the art of sailing and instilled a love for it that Zack applies to anything he does in or on the ocean. He also took his first dives during that time and became Open Water certified.
After a couple years, Zack moved on to work with Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic. As an immersive, high-end cruising operation, this world taught the ins and outs of liveaboard work and cruising to exceed the expectations of high end clientele. As a licensed deckhand Zack ran onshore and offshore expeditions in remote and wild areas, which gives a sense and awareness in exploring unique locales in a safe and enjoyable manner. It also brought him close to some amazing wildlife, geology, and oceanography, which has enhanced his knowledge base and ability to engage and educate clientele. This also allowed Zack to save up to complete his Divemaster course with PADI, which he did in Roatan, Honduras. Here he fell “deeper” in love with the ocean, exploring the wild and wonderful world of the reef. Wall dives, swim throughs, caves, and wrecks are his favorites…but anything under the ocean further drives the engine of passion.
Following this Zack went on to run private charter sails in Bar Harbor, Maine, which gave him the experience of managing his own vessel and guest experiences. Working in these waters gave him an advanced appreciation for the magnificent forces of the ocean and a continued wonder for how this world has shaped itself through the ages.
This will be Zack´s second season in the Caribbean. All of the experiences of a beautiful first year down here provide the knowledge base to help cultivate unique itineraries of adventure, relaxation, and wonder.
Growing up in the small North Carolina town of Surf City by salty water has always been home and where Taylor´s passions for all things ocean blossomed. At a young age she was introduced to cooking, boating, and fishing. The love for all of those things just grew even stronger over time.
Taylor got started in the kitchen early. During her younger years she always enjoyed being with her mother while she was cooking. She quickly picked up on things and started assisting. Not too long after that she was making family dinners herself. Taylor comes from a southern and Asian background that is full of tradition Her love for food and excitement was a catalyst to expand her knowledge in the culinary world that led to her working in many different types of restaurants for over a decade. Taylor´s main interest lies in preparing seafood dishes of many different sorts.
While the kitchen was the heart of her home, the sea was her love. Boating and fishing became a key part of Taylor´s everyday life. She spent a lot of time with her dad fishing. They would travel about eighty miles offshore to the gulf. At the age of fourteen she acquired her boating license. She worked at the local marina in the summers cleaning and detailing boats allowing her to meet several fishermen in the area. She became a part time first-mate and would work for several different captains throughout her time off from school from spring to fall. Together they would day charter guests inshore and offshore to catch an array of different species. She acquired a specific set of skills that led to her toughest and longest fight reeling in a 450-pound marlin. Growing up around the water and in the boating world she learned a lot about how to properly maintain and take care of boats.
Throughout life Taylor has built up lots of strengths and passions. Her mission is to make all who encounter her feel special and important. Taylor thrives from showing kindness, love, and compassion. All experiences are better with smiles, laughter, exceptional food, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Felix Guest Reviews
Thank You For Everything!!!
The most fabulous surprise this week was the cooking. The variety and ingenious recipes- all of them health foods, blew my mind. It´s the first time ever I really enjoyed health conscious cooking. There were meals- your baked eggs, my favorite - that were shockingly tasty. Thank you for everything. You adapted to our dietary choices. One pescatarian, dairy free, gluten free, and spice intolerance. And like magic came up with recipes that were both gorgeous and delicious, filling and healthy. You did it with love and enthusiasm-including the menu board done with calligraphy. And the boat was so comfy.
Zack our captain always with a good plan and smooth ride with a happy and kind demeanor. You were so thoughtful in your explanations and feedback was so positive and thoughtful.Way beyond your years. Wish every man was as good to his lady and other women as you. The world would be a better place. Your humor was always kind and silly fun. And the dives were wonderful.
Bottom line, I´d love to adopt you. Be proud of you for your resourceful, mindful energy- it´s beautiful. Thank you so much for a week of restoration in this stressful time. So good to find. Don´t lose your mojo - its precious. Call me when you hit SoCal.
What An Adventure
Taylor and Zack, what an adventure....beyond every expectation. ´Service´ with a smile. Sailing smoothly, diving beautifully.
The cuisine- gourmet, inventive, delicious, and so amazingly flexible and tasty.
Captain´s cocktails were perfect.
The company, we loved our interactions.
You both are so wonderful and so very hardworking. You excellence made it an excellent trip. We will miss you both and look forward to the next time our tradewinds put us in the same path. Stay on your journeys. Until we meet again!
The World Is Better Having You In It.
It was such a pleasure to meet both of you. You both are so unique with wonderful energy. I feel very lucky to have met you and look forward to keeping in touch. Taylor, please publish your recipes! You have a real gift and the world will fall in love with your dishes. Most importantly, you both are really special and the world is better for having you in it.
Wow-oh-wow Zack, you are a great captain and what a tremendous week we have had here in the virgin islands.
You rocked out so many fun activities for us:
The octopus shipwreck
Penetrating the steel structure and exploring the engine room!!!
Jane loved watching Felix (son) wakeboard with RIzzo as your copilot in the tender from the stand up paddle board in the beautiful bay off Virgin Gorda. (our favorite island)
Greg and Jane watched you sail or motor almost every moment of the adventure and sure appreciated the knowledge bestowed from the helm!
and.... Sweet Southern Taylor! How we enjoyed your delicious, culinary offerings! Especially the fabulous nightly sweet treats!
You were a vital member of our rowdy night out at Willy T´s´ from the shotski to the dance floor...and don´t forget about the belly laughing over the pirates creed.
As much as Jane loved swimming and being beachy with Rizzo, he so enjoyed arting and gaming in the kitchen with you that we adults ( plus teenager) had some special moments away from big parenting responsibility,
Thanks so much for that amazing space to relax and unwind.
Can´t wait to connect again on the great mother´s waters.
So Much Fun
Taylor, I´ve had so much fun with you in the kitchen!! I loved when you played games with us and I really enjoyed when we stayed back from the hike and it was just us two!!! I´ll miss you!
Zack, thank you for keeping us safe with your sailing skills! I really liked when you took us out for a sunset dinghy ride, I also liked when we sang the 100 bottles of beer song! We will miss you all so much. Thank you!
You Made Us Feel So Comfortable!
This has been such an amazing trip because of Taylor and Zack! You all have been so kind, helpful, and it is so great how well you work as a team. Taylor, your food was so amazing and never failed to make us happy. You were also so helpful and fun. The games we played were so fun and you always let us help you cook.
Zack, you are an amazing captain. You were also having a good time with us from fun facts and learning games. You were a great hiking leader. You both were so involved with us which made us more comfortable. Thank you so much for a great trip. I will always remember this.
This was 10/10 easily the best trip I have ever taken. Both of you are really awesome people, some of the best that I know. Taylor, you make the best food I have ever tasted and are super fun to hang out with. Zack, you know all the secrets to all the islands and are pretty tough and super fun to hang out with. Thank you for the best trip of my short life...so far. Maybe next year will be even better.
Packed With Experiences
Thank you for an enjoyable week of sailing and exploring. Very much enjoyed meeting you both and incorporating you into our family while in the USVI. It went by so quickly but was packed with so many unique experiences, beach time, hiking, ruins, snorkeling (day and night), and many water sports. Great time!
Activity Filled Week!
Zack and Taylor, this has been an amazing week. We have done so much that it is really hard to pick one favorite. Hiking, snorkeling, swimming, tubing, wakeboarding, puzzles, games, stories, sunsets, beautiful views, great music, and so much more! I can´t believe how much we packed into one week.
Food...Where do I start? Every meal and snack was so thoughtful and accommodating to our families. Everything was delicious and beautiful. I will definitely be texting you for recipes.
This is in the books with one of our favorite vacations, with a lot of new amazing memories which you will forever be part of! Stay in touch and let us know if you are ever is Louisville.
Thank you so much! The boat, the toys, the islands, the food, the games, the snorkeling, was amazing. But, Zack and Taylor made this one of our most unforgettable vacations ever! You guys were just part of our family. Appreciate the work, time, and love you invested in us. We will never forget this trip. Thank you and best wishes of bright future.
This is definitely a yacht for foodies. The food and drinks will leave you wanting more. Taylor´s food and drinks are amazing! Zack is a wonderful yachtsman. He knows his places and having him share where to go next every evening was very informative. They really made this trip a lot of fun and very enjoyable for us.
Our experience with Zack and Taylor was WONDERFUL! Taylor is an incredible chef, every meal was somehow better than the last. The desserts were out of this world. Zack and Taylor both made excellent drinks and kept them flowing! Zack was also super helpful around the boat. Thank you both.
Amazing experience. Outstanding food each and every time.
Zack and Taylor are an amazing team. Looking forward to next time.
If I can make a recommendation
-lobster dip and lobster tails
Zack and Taylor are an awesome duo. They kept us fed, hydrated, and super entertained. Looking forward to the next trip.
A Key Lime Pie to die for, thanks for such a memorable trip!
What an amazing adventure! Zack and Taylor were great hosts. We sailed and stopped at so many great locations, so it´s hard to pick a favorite. I think Christmas Cove was my favorite snorkeling spot. Saw amazing coral, fish, rays, and starfish! Zack was always accommodating or making sure we went to locations that met our devices. Chef Taylor - Wow! The food was incredible! I´m sure the scales will confirm that I enjoyed everything Taylor prepared for us. I´m having a hard time coming up with a favorite entree but dessert...hands down for me was the Key Lime pie. Taylor uses many unique and delicious flavors to enhance everything she cooks. The presentations are pure art work. It was fun to see Taylor and Zack working as a team in the kitchen. Thanks for a memorable vacation.
Thank you so much for a beautiful trip through the Virgin Islands!
Thank you so much for a beautiful trip through the Virgin Islands. The Felix offered great spaces for relaxing, reading, eating, playing games etc. Zack and Taylor were great hosts. Very flexible and accommodating, showing us so many private spots to chill. Food was unbelievable - nice job Taylor. Looking forward to your blog and recipe book :) Visit all of us in Michigan anytime! We would love to show you around.
This charter has been a long time (30 plus years) dream of ours!
We had an amazing time on the Felix with Zack and Taylor. This has been a long time (30 plus years) dream of ours. It exceeded our expectations. Zack is a knowledgeable captain. We felt safe at all times. He was full of information about the islands and always took us someplace interesting and fun. We especially enjoyed snorkeling at Monkey Point and Christmas Cove. Visiting the Baths was an especially nice trip. Zack also is a great scuba instructor. Doing a refresher course and dive was great. So the only thing bad I can say about Taylor´s cooking was that my clothes are so tight as I prepare to leave! Steak and lobster were so good. As was the korean kabobs and Key Lime pie (BEST EVER!) The Felix is a great boat. Comfortable and well outfitted but Taylor and Zack made the trip! You became like family Visit Michigan some day!
Knowledgeable and Professional
Thank you Captain Zack and Chef Taylor for a wonderful week on Felix. We couldn´t have asked for a better time! Both Zack and Taylor were friendly and enthusiastic about showing us all the BVI and USVI has to offer. Both are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and open to ideas and we always felt safe and comfortable. Besides knowing everything there is to know about marine life, Zack went above and beyond with taking our teenage crosscountry enthusiast son on trail runs and explored other islands. Taylor always made sure we were full and satisfied - her dishes were consistently tasty. Thank you Felix and crew, we hope to be back again soon!
Thank you Felix and Crew
Thank you very much for our time on the Felix. We could not have had a better time. Even with one night of rain you all made it a blast. We loved having Zack go out snorkeling in the water with us. He was able to show and teach us so much about marine life. Taylor´s food kept us full and was yummy. The Low Country Boil was delicious. There is so much to do you will never get bored. A vacation of a lifetime. Thank you Felix and crew.

Exceeded Our Expectations
This trip has been a bucket list vacation for the last 10 years! With all the build up and daydreaming you would have thought we might end up ´romanticizing´ it more than possible, not at all!
In every way, the trip exceeded expectations, gourmet cuisine, unlimited activity, the ´spots´..., all while enjoying your gracious hospitality!

We could have never imagined all that we would see, do and enjoy!
Your guests are lucky to get you! And...we were lucky to spend the week with you!
Fair winds and following seas!
An Adventurous Week
That was one hell of an adventurous week! Thank you for helping us be ´life hogs´. Although Nana lobbied hard to join you for the rest of the sailing season we are going to drag her off the boat to the flight. This vacation is in our ´ALL TIMER´ list of great vacations! Thanks for the fun, laughs, drinks, food, sailing, diving, snorkeling, and all around good times!
Truly amazing! What a glorious time we all had and it was made especially awesome by you two - the ultimate dynamic duo! We felt so taken care of and loved by you guys - we´ve all agreed that we´ll miss you two as much as the Virgin Islands! The experience has been utterly wonderful and we are most grateful for your generosity, kindness, expertise, hard work, and warm spirits.
Truly Amazing Vacation
Thank you so much! This has been a truly amazing vacation and you two have been incredibly generous and kind. There was never a time when you haven´t been there for us, laughing with us, or helping us. You have been truly spectacular and lovely. You have made our experience really great. Whether it´s providing a delicious meal, showing us the most amazing places, or leading us around the high seas.
Thank you so much for an awesome week of fun & sun! You have both been fantastic hosts.
Thank you again and good luck on all your future plans!
Best Trip Ever

Keep reaching for the stars.
You both have made this the Best Trip Ever. This journey will continue. My partner in crime.
