Good Vibrations Crew Profile
Captain Oliver and Lou are looking forward to welcoming you on board Good Vibrations.
Captain Oli, is an easy going and laid back person. His experience with yachting has taken him throughout the Caribbean, both chartering and sailing aboard his own boat. He sailed across the Atlantic on his own vessel and his experiences in the water have given him the ability to be a knowledgeable and skilled sailor. His passion for spearfishing, diving, snorkeling, and exploring has given him the enthusiasm to take others out too. Captain Oli has been sailing on board Good Vibrations for the past 2 years and has done an extensive amount of passages between the Grenadine islands. He loves taking guests to the best anchorages with views, and secluded beaches for the best spots to swim with turtles. For guests who want to learn, they have the opportunity to learn to adjust the sails, change tacks and trim sheets as Captain Oli is happy to teach. Growing up in France, he enjoys good conversation and good food.
Chef : Lou
Oliver is joined by Chef Lou on charter from the island of Bequia. They have sailed together on charters before and make a great team for Grenadines charters. Lou is a bubbly always smiling lady who is eager to impress and always willing to adapt her cooking to her guests on board. Lou´s specialty is fresh local cooking using ingredients from the islands of St Vincent and her local fresh soups (especially the callalou) and home made cakes as well as fresh conch dishes and seafood - everything always comes highly recommended. She can cook for your dietary needs and restrictions and has Vegetarian menu options as well.
Lou has been working on crewed charter catamarans and monohulls as a chef for the past four years and before this, on the ferries cooking for crew. She loves the water and sailing and is a very useful crew member as well as chef on board. She is happy to be in the galley whilst sailing and incredibly knowledgeable about the Grenadines islands.

Good Vibrations Guest Reviews
You are wonderful!
We cant thank you enough for all you’ve done to make our trip so enjoyable – fabulous meals, entertaining stories and island knowledge. You are wonderful! Thank you so much! Marilyn
We will never forget this trip
Mama Lou! What can we say except thank you – you have been a wonderful cook and hostess and we will never forget this trip. You even got the thumbs up of our daughter the fussiest eater – from pancakes to rotis to lobster – we loved it all. We will always cherish this week in the Grenadines and you will always be in our memories. Rachel, Gideon and Georgie
I learned a lot
Olivier is a GREAT skipper! I felt very comfortable with him in charge. He was passionately engaged in sailing and the well being of the people around him. His patience and sense of humor made everything that much better! I learned a lot from this French guy and would gladly sail with him any day!
Your attention to every detail, no matter how small, is really amazing.
Ollie! You are a magician, a joy to watch sailing (truly seeing you sail is like watching ART!) and such a wonderful human. Thank you for leading us on a beautiful journey and sharing all your knowledge. You went above and beyond. Your attention to every detail, no matter how small, is really amazing. Thank you!
A fantastic Captain !
A fantastic captain and an amazing gentleman. He knows the islands well and the great spots to go and things to see. Points out all the different dining options one may be interested in while traveling.
An exceptional cook and a great person. We have traveled with Good Vibrations twice and looking forward to the next trip.
18 Nov 2018 Olivier is truly amazing.
We had a great week sailing. Olivier is a truly amazing skipper. He looked after our every need. Thank you to you and Katie for arranging the holiday of a lifetime.
November 2018 - Sailing in the Grenadines
We had a fantastic experience and would definitely sail again. We chartered a new Beneteau 55 for 5 days/4 nights in the Grenadines. The boat was nice and fit our family of 4 comfortably. Our captain, was great and very easy going. He planned a good itinerary and was flexible as to what we all wanted to do each day. If you want to learn to sail he will teach you a lot or you can sit on the deck and enjoy the sun, views and rum. Our kids, ages 8 and 11, loved the trip from snorkeling with turtles in the Cays. The food was fresh. We started the trip from PSV and sailed around Union, Mayreau and the Cays. I think next time we would want to do a 7 day trip starting in Bequia and head down to Union or even Grenada.
November 2018 - Wonderful people and beautiful islannds.
We had a wonderful time in the Grenadines, wonderful people and beautiful islands, seen at their best from the sea. We would all like to thank you and your team for making Russell’s birthday one to remember, the cake was lovely.
Ollie was great, he had wonderful knowledge and we would not have seen so much of the islands without him. He fitted into our group easily, cooked dinner for us all one night and made the holiday very special.
The boat was lovely, comfortable and met our expectations.
October 2018 - Vivian, always bright, cheerful, upbeat and undaunted.
Our imaginative head chef Vivian constantly entertained us with the varied fare cheerfully cooked in the galley of our 55 ft sailboat. Spirited Vivian, always bright, cheerful, upbeat and undaunted. I could not have asked for a better shipmate, and professional crew. I am without reservation, happy to recommend Vivian most highly. - Michael Pschorr
June 18 - Thank you!
We had a great time and the food was excellent - thank you
June 2018 - Meals were delicious.
Vivian has prepared meals for us on several occasions. The meals were delicious and visually appealing. Her work ethic is second to none and she gets along with everyone. I charter with her whenever I can. - Laura L. Zavalia
April 2018 - A big thank you for a great sailing holiday
The captain´s professional approach to sailing and Rachel’s passionate enthusiasm for cooking made for a truly memorable experience. They were great company.
Overall the boat was very comfortable, clean & well maintained and provided us with the level of luxury we were hoping for on our journey through the Grenadines. Clearly the boat was laid out for up to six guests, so for the two of us it was very spacious.
What can I say about Bequia, Tobago Cays, Union and all the other islands that make up the Grenadines and Grenada? They were magnificent and sailing through these magically islands is the only way to really appreciate them. The beautiful scenery, the clear waters, the warm climate, the friendly people, the beaches,… I could fill many pages with positive things to say. Everybody should take the chance to drift through the Grenadines and sample the magic.
our imaginative head chef Vivian constantly entertained us with the varied fare cheerfully cooked in the galley of our 55 ft sailboat. Spirited Vivian, always bright, cheerful, upbeat and undaunted. After days and nights of fierce lighting, 15 ft waves, wind gusts over 50 in torrential rains, Vivian did not hesitate the next day becalmed in broiling sun to volunteer to be hoisted up the 70 ft mast to repair a broken stay.
I could not have asked for a better shipmate, and professional crew. I am without reservation, happy to recommend Vivian most highly.
What a chef!!
Lou - Forget all your local knowledge and karisma. What a chef!!! You use anything that is available from local fruit and vegetables to fresh fish and create memorable meals that rival the best chefs that we have in the states. Thanks! Martin and Helen
