Bill was born and raised in Belgium. After high school, Bill started a degree in sports management until he took a summer off to do a dive master internship in Thailand. Soon after arriving Bill fell in love with the diving culture and being around the ocean and since then has never looked back! He went far beyond his divemaster internship and eventually became an instructor. He spent the next four years traveling and teaching diving around the beautiful islands of Asia. After a successful four years instructing countless students, Bill discovered a new passion of Sailing. He jumped right in and followed his passion to Spain where he spent 6 months training for his Yacht Master certificate. From there, Bill moved to Australia to further his sailing career. He spent the next two years captaining a 50 foot catamaran for the number one tourist company in Australia. Here he fell in love with taking out charter guests and being around people who are taking a break from their normal lives to have some fun! Ever since, Bill has been hooked on the yachting industry.

Ashley was born and raised in Tampa, Florida where she discovered her love for the ocean and watersports at a young age through snorkeling, fishing and boating. She attended college at Florida State University where she acquired a degree in Family and Child Sciences. After a year working at a preschool, Ashley moved to Australia to further explore her love for the ocean. There she did her dive master internship and like Bill was hooked. She went on to get her instructors as well to continue her passion for teaching. To supplement her diving income, she also worked in a high-end resort as a server and bartender where she gained valuable hospitality skills and a love for the service industry. Ashley has always had a passion for putting on events and entertaining guests, at this resort she was able to help put on wedding receptions and make sure the guests had a special experience. Ashley loves going above and beyond to ensure guests always have an unforgettable time and especially combining her hospitality skills with her love of the ocean, which has led her to the chartering industry.

May 2024 BVI Charter

Our vacation in the BVI was all (and more) than we expected. Bill took us to wonderful dive and snorkel sites, while Ashley fed us gourmet meals from sunup to sun down. There wasn´t a time when either hosts wasn´t available to mix a drink, pour us a water, help us don dive gear- you name it. BILL AND ASHLEY WERE THE BEST!!

May 2024 BVI Charter

We can not thank you enough for the best four days. It was the best way to celebrate my birthday. Everything was beyond perfect. All the food and drinks were insane! Every second of every day was amazing! Even on our little rainy moments- we couldn´t ask for anything else. Thank you for making us feel right at home. PER-FECT-ION, Everything - total perfection!

Dear Captain & Chef Ashley

Thank you SO very much for a fantastic week sailing the BVI! This was a bucket list trip for my husband´s 40th birthday and we couldn´t have picked a better crew for us and our three kiddos. We hit all the spots and the snorkeling was the best - no one wanted to get out of the water - so many fish, stingrays and octopus- CRAZY! We sailed all types of waters - huge waves (the kids loved bouncing around), smooth evenings, wind and some rain ( Soggy Dollar - everyone enjoyed swimming with rain drops in the sea!) - we encountered it all - it was a blast!

Bill thanks for navigating the seas, letting the kids drive the boat and anchoring at all the best spots! The kids loved to ask you one million questions - thanks for answering all of them!

Chef Ash- you are incredible! I don´t even know what to say to capture your attention to every meal, snack and drink- it is high end, filled with flavor and ambiance- EVERY SINGLE meal! You went above and beyond making breakfast with the kids, letting them help with dessert and even gave us a ´date night´ . How special it was to have you on our first charter! You set the bar incredibly high!

Thank you for all the memories, chats and caring for us all week! Excited to see where you all sail next and hope to catch you on the next trip!

Mr. Bill & Mrs. Ashley

We’ve enjoyed this trip so much! It has been a dream of ours to share the BVI sailing experience with our kids and the week has been filled with so many core memories. Ashley, you’re cooking is a dream! Every meal was perfectly planned and we appreciate your special meals for our little Andie girl so much. The kids will never forget your cheesecake, and diving down to find them sea creatures. Mr. Bill, thank you for being so patient and sharing your knowledge of these waters and sailing. We feel like we hit the jackpot for our boat crew. I hope we’ll get to do another journey someday and wish you the best of life over these next few years as your journey continues!

Cheers!
- Shelton, Kate, Madden, Andie and Jack


Dear Ashley and Bill

You are the best crew and friends ever! You have made our stay on the boat more magical than I ever imagined it could be.

Ashley, your meals are the best tasting food I’ve ever had. Meal after meal I wonder how one human being can create such a masterpiece. Also, beyond your incredible meals, you are snorkeling with us is SOOOOO fun! Having an expert with us to deep dive and bring us back awesome treasures. Thank you for sharing your coconut pops with me!

Bill,

I cannot begin to explain how extraordinary you are. You can fix anything, and you are the best captain in the entire ocean. You help everyone with everything, snorkeling gear, driving the boat, the dinghy, etc.!

You are the best crew anyone could ask for, wait, not crew… FRIENDS! :)

Love, Madden

April 2024 BVI Charter

Dear Ashley & Bill,
What an amazing week we had, thank you! There wasn’t a detail overlooked, or an adventure missed, or a meal that wasn’t done to perfection! You went above and beyond, and yet made it look so very effortless. Your knowledge of the BVI, and all the amenities on the boat, led us to enjoy absolutely everything we wanted to in our short week… from diving to hiking, snorkeling to shelling, sup’ing to fishing, and even a little bar hopping! We fit it all in without having to make any big decisions or contemplate where we would go each day. Thank you!

The greatest gift to us was being together as a family, disconnecting from the world and getting to know and enjoy the two of you. You are so very skilled at what you do. The meals, snacks, and fancy drinks exceeded all expectation! I’m not quite sure how you pull it off in that tiny galley, and yet each meal was five star, plated to perfection, and delicious. You quietly accommodated our dietary restrictions, and not just during main course, but dessert too!

We are going to miss the bin of Sun Bum, colorful Turkish towels, personalized Yeti’s and much much more!
With gratitude,
Laurel, Josh, Kohl & Elle

The trip of a lifetime! So glad our friends recommended Epic - Hannah guided us through
the pre-trip panning, and Bill and Ashley took amazing care of us all week on Floatation Therapy! Ashley’s cooking was delicious - she took such good care to make sure everyone had what they needed, and we loved her creative table scapes at every meal - including a birthday surprise. Cocktails were yummy - highly recommend their Pain killers!

It was a pleasure spending the Week with Ashley ana Bill, they are so easy going and personable. They really made our vacation so special- even teaching our teen girls to scuba dive! Already looking to ward to or next voyage with then!
Thank you!

February 2024 BVI Charter

Bill and Ashley,

This was a bucket list trip for our party of four. So we had no idea what to expect. From the minute we first stepped on board you guys treated us like we were royalty - waiting on us hand and foot.

Ashley, the meals you prepared for us were so over the top we were just blown away. It was like eating in a fancy restaurant three meals a day. All of the attention you give to presentation, food quality, etc. was amazing. And your kind and generous personality was so endearing.

Bill, we enjoyed watching you and Ashley work together as a team. And we loved hearing you describe the Islands, always preparing us for the next cool thing we would be doing. The knowledge you possess as a boat captain was incredible.

But most of all we just enjoyed getting to know you guys. It felt like we were life long friends after all the late night conversations over drinks, the laughs etc. So thank you both from the bottom of our hearts.

Best trip of my life! We couldn’t be happier with every day meal, dive and opportunities to soak in the Virgin Islands. Bill and ashley are the absolute perfect couple to sell the seas with. We had so much fun and it will be tough to top this trip, but we will try on our next trip with them! Thank you for a great week and for taking such great care of us.

Captain Bill and first mate Ash
Sailing the bays of the Caribbean blue
Seeking the calm and efficient path
A smile on each face, their intentions, true

Go ahead, test them, make a request
Food and drinks and song and dance
A years worth of fun in eight days or less
You’ll beg to come back, if given the chance

The only regret is, it won’t last forever
So record all the moments with paper and pen
We departed Tortola with a captain and crew
We returned with a new pair of friends

Dec 2023 BVI Charter

Bill and Ashley ,

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. We super appreciate the accommodating way you managed Niams pescatarianism while still feeding me meat. Each meal made neither of us feel left out. We especially loved that amazing beach picnic, but each meal was a pleasure from the table setting all the way to dessert.

Both of you were so lovely, thank you specifically for suggesting I should complete my PADI advanced open water certification. Bill was a great instructor and a pleasure to dive with. We appreciate him taking the time to plan a terrific dive itinerary while still leaving space for relaxation.

I can honestly say that the service was above and beyond you were both a pleasure to get to know this whole trip was extraordinary. We truly can’t begin to adequately express how amazing this whole experience has been.

THANK YOU!

June 2023 USVI Charter

We could not be more pleased with this while vacation experience. The boat and the USVI were beautiful, but Mike and Sara made this trip (and my 40th birthday) incredibly special. They were so kind and patient with our boys, keeping them busy, engaged and safe. The food was thoughtfully curated and super yummy! Read even has a new favorite - Salmon- despite his initial (vocal) complaints haha. We are already planning our next charter and truly hope we cross paths with Mike and Sara again.

We love your patient low key style, it puts everyone at ease.

Great anchorages, good snorkeling, excellent dives. Capped off with David finding two octopus!

Sara, you are the best of the great chefs we’ve met in the VI. So creative and such fine meals. Then chicken and fish tacos, the beef tenderloin, YUM!!

March 2022 USVI Charter

We recently chartered Floatation Therapy for six nights in the US Virgin Islands and we could not have been happier on our charter. Captain Mike and Chef Sara were absolutely exceptional and we loved our time with them. From the very beginning, it was clear that they wanted to make sure that our trip met the desires of the whole group. On our pre-call, they asked great questions, were professional and had great communication and were incredibly responsive. Throughout the entire experience, they both were friendly, professional, kind, calm and just really, really good people. They listened to us and created an itinerary that was exactly what we were looking for and made sure that every experience was a positive one – from reserving moorings, reservations, finding great snorkel and dive spots, recommending great restaurants, connecting us with taxi drivers, etc. They absolutely went above and beyond in every situation. Chef Sara’s food is incredible and she made some of the best food we’ve eaten. She baked bread (sandwich bread AND the most amazing banana bread we’ve ever tasted), made homemade pizza crust, created a wonderful blueberry compote from scratch, pickled her own jalapenos and just made everything wonderful without cutting any corners. Her salmon dish and curry pork dish were two of our favorites and we seriously commented after every meal how delicious the food tasted. I also commented that the meal table always got very quiet once the food was served because we were all loving it so much. Most importantly, Mike and Sara are just good people. We loved being around them and enjoyed having them a part of our vacation. We will absolutely be rebooking with the two of them in the future!

February 2022 USVI Charter

Mike and Sara were stellar. They anticipated our every need, and responded to every request…immediately. Mike was an amazing bartender and skilled sailor and diver and Sara a very accomplished chef and all around fun interesting travel mate. They were relaxed and welcoming and made us instantly comfortable on board They went above and beyond to make this adventure everything we had hoped.
I’d have to say it was a 10 (out of 5 stars) for us all. I wouldn’t change one aspect of our time on board!
We hope to book w Mike and Sara next February but have to get the rest of our party on board first. I will be reaching out for sure. Cannot wait!

Sara’s gourmet cuisine (5 star chef) to Mike’s maritime experience with navigation anchorages and life on board in general.

It was a perfect vacation. Hope to see you again for a repeat experience!

February 2021 USVI Charter

“The week went so fast, thanks to Sara and Mike’s planning and hospitality. We felt very safe in Captain Mike’s sailing hands and very satisfied thanks to Sara’s amazing cooking. They knew all the best coves for sun and fun at the beach. They picked great dive spots and even found a lobster on our last day to serve up for a delicious lunch. We enjoyed Mexican Dominos and shots of fireball. It was an extraordinary adventure!!” -Kelly and Rob

“What an awesome week, we had such a wonderful time on Floatation Therapy. Sara and Mike were amazing - all planning and anticipating our needs before we did. They really went beyond we couldn’t of asked for anything more. We loved the diving especially Tektite and catching a lobster on the last day. We are ready to come back next year and do it all over again!! You also made us forget about covid and all the problems of the world. Couldn’t ask for more! Sara’s meals were delicious and plated beautifully! Thanks for everything!” -Clair and Mark

´Mike,
You did a great job captaining the Floatation Therapy Yacht! Thank you for keeping us face. It was fun to have the wind behind us and raise the jib. We appreciate that you had some ideas of where to go and what to do in the USVI. Thank you for hiking with us and snorkeling with us. Thanks for the many rides on the tender boat to the beaches, snorkel spots, and to dinner, You also listened to our wants and ideas.”

“Sara,
You served us so well! You were a rock star in the galley with creative menus of healthy and delicious meals. I will never forget the stuffed bell pepper lunch the first day, the lemon garlic shrimp & zucchini noodles, crab cakes on Salemon Beach and steak and scallops over cauliflower rice! You work long hours with a sweet spirit to meet our needs and our wants. Thanks, too, for assisting Mike on the vessel and tender boat.”

-Sincerely,
Randy and Nancy

January 2021 USVI Charters

#FLOATATIONTHERAPY The name says it all. If you are looking for a charter that creates a place of peace whether exhilarating adventures w hikes, dives/snorkeling, or serene bays and beaches basking in the sun Floatation Therapy along with its great crew is the place to be.

They had fresh unique dishes and some fabulous favorites. Cappacinios with breakfast, simple snacks after snorkeling, appetizing lunches, more snacks if you like, and of course, opulent dinner followed by decadent desserts. And always on hand a cocktail or two or three!

The crew, Mike and Sarah, helped us plan and create the experience we wanted. A getaway with no shopping, no work, low carb menu, and no stress. Beginning in Caneel Bay, snorkeling at Henley Bay (awesome), Trunk Bay - beautiful beach to bask in the sun (underwater snorkel trail interesting), Cruz Bay - off to our one dine out, Leinster Bay - hike up to Annaberg Sugar Mill (light hike, history, and butterflies among the Nokia trees), another beautiful restful visit to Caneel Bay among the sea turtles, then off to Salt Pond Bay - light hike through Salt Pond (a lesson in salt and ecology in itself) to Drunk Bay (a transition from simple beauty to splendid rock/ reef/fossil exploration) - with luscious mangroves, rolling green hills - a dramatic sea crashing among the rocks. On my next trip, I plan to hike Ram Heads Trail, which I hear is spectacular.

Thank you, Mike and Sarah, for an awesome adventure and all the therapy I could ask for. You´ll see me again!!
