Mick, your Captain, grew up in a boating family in Southern California. He started water-skiing and sailing at a young age. He began operating charter boats in 1990, running boats that did whale watching trips, diving trips and fishing trips out the San Francisco, California area. In the late 1990s, he added sailing trips in the same area. He later started sailing down the California coast, and along the Pacific coast of Mexico, including the Sea of Cortez. He was introduced to the Bahamas, and the Caribbean about the same time. Before long, the Caribbean had a hold of him, and he started sailing seasonally in St Lucia, the Virgin Islands, and around the Bahamas, in addition to three seasons in Mexico. He finally sold his boats on the west coast, and is now able to sail in the Virgin Islands year round.
Mick´s passion is boats and showing people new and exciting things on, under and around the waters of a beautiful area.

Sher, Captain & Chef, has a wealth of experience on charter boats having worked sailing, motor and diving charter vessels. She is originally from the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, but loves the sea. She is an Air Force Veteran and is very well traveled having lived in Europe, South America and the Caribbean and traveled far beyond. She now makes the water her home on S/Y Island Time!
Sher looks forward to ensuring her guests have a wonderful experience in all areas of their holiday: sailing, exploring the gorgeous island beaches, snorkeling, paddle boarding and other water sports, relaxing with island beverages, learning about the beautiful islands and more! To add to their experiences, she serves a delicious array of meals, snacks and beverages!

Sher & Mick
I´m my wildest dreams, I couldn´t have imagined a trip like this! To travel from Island to island in comfort with all the beauty around us was such a treat! Loved all the meals and being able to relax and not fret over all the planning, preparing and clean up. That´s a great part of a vacation for me! You guys were great taking us to great locations and giving us all your knowledge on each. I always felt safe and well taken care 6. You guys are the best!
We plan on coming back next year!
Thanks for the memories!

Khan Charter

Mick & Sher,
This trip was so much more than we could have expected. No Words could ever describe just how amazing this experience has been.
We live you both to pieces and We Will Be Back.
Much Love.

Island Time was everything (and then some) that we could have asked for! Mick and Sher were delightful, his captaining of the boat was superb, her cooking was off the charts sensational, their host/hostessing was perfect – we all gave it 5 stars! The St. Martin/St. Bart’s areas were beautiful – we got to snorkel with tortoises and sea rays and saw the green flash at sunset on our last night!

I can’t say enough about what a great time we had – thanks for putting us together with them!

West

Mick & Sher have the perfect chemistry for a fun, relaxed, and adventurous island vacation. The cutest couple in the Caribbean make a great place even better. The quality of service and attention to detail inspires those of us who also work in the service and/or hospitality industry. We felt our experiences on & off the boat benefitted from Mick & Sher´s knowledge and true love of the BVI, and we would recommend Island Time to ANY traveller.

...When the day seems impossible to face, just one look at you and we know it´s gonna be a Lovely Day... ♥️♥️

Rula

The Rula Family had a remarkable experience. I now have the nickname Scuba Dave! The food, knowledge of the islands and sailing are unmatched. I hope my family has learned to appreciate the water as much as I do. It has been a great memory and one that I hope to do with Mick and Sher again soon.
All the best.

ISLAND TIME charter family !

Mick and Sher made it incredibly convenient for us, picking us up at the dock, despite a late arrival and getting us out on the water quickly.

Our accommodations were wonderful. We had more space than we expected. The beds were comfortable; we were provided with attractive and clean towels.

The meals were fantastic. I remain amazed that Sher was able to create such good food in the galley. At every meal we had heathly, tasty meals, plenty of quantity, and variety throughout the trip. In particular, we had one member of our party with a wheat allergy. Sher prepared special meals for that person that were better than he gets at home. It was clear she put real thought into preparing meals without wheat that would still be delicious.

Skipworth Charter !

Mick & Sher,
You provided a wonderful vacation for a family of first time seafarers. You took us to beautiful, quiet coves where the kids could peacefully snorkel, hike, paddle board adn wakeboard, and gave us parents wonderful evenings watching the sunset with VanillaNilla. Fantastic!
Thank you so much,
The Skipworths´

Peters Charter !

Mick & Sher
Thank you for an excellent adventure!

After an extraordinary first-time charter in 2016 I was confident in Mick & Sher´s ability to provide highly personalized Caribbean experiences. I have returned to introduce family to the adventures of the USVI/BVI aboard Island Time. From the moment we boarded your commitment to excellence and desire to fine tune our experience was apparent. I was grateful that you were able to effortlessly make once in a lifetime moments my family will cherish.

Meals aboard are creative, delicious and presented with flair. KUDOS to Chef Sher!

Snorkeling, Swimming, Sailing & Paddle Boarding & Hiking to old ruins were favorite times in the morning.

Moonlight and stars in secluded coves were just one of the many highlights of the charter. Getting off of the beaten path and finding you´re the only boat in a secluded cove is wonderful. Sunsets & sunrises - those were spectacular.

Mick & Sher - your ability to adjust our planned itinerary when weather conditions dictated a change to keep us safe and protected from uncomfortable conditions is a perfect definition of seamanship. While other were stuck in an uncomfortable anchorage with a swell & roll, we were tucked into a quiet bay enjoying a swim.

I never hesitate to recommend Island Time to friends who are looking for an exceptional Caribbean charter.

Thanks for the amazing time.

Barbour Charter !!

Dear Captain Mick & First Mate/Galley Goddess Sher,

Thank you for providing us with such an amazing introduction to the Virgin Islands! We loved it all - the boat, the ambiance, the food, the beverages, the watersports & sight-seeing. We especially appreciated you noticing our preference to get off the beaten path and tailoring our overnights accordingly. Our favorite hideaway was ________Bay. Shh-let´s keep it our secret!
Thanks for everything- We hope to return soon.

Mick and Sher were terrifically frendly and specially accommodating

The yacht was perfect - everything was in top shape.
Inside and outside were very comfortable 100% of the time, with plenty of ventilation.

The food and presentation were OUTSTANDING!!! Sher exceeded our expectations 4 times every day.

The areas we sailed were Awesome! We were playing and waking up in National Parks ... or better!

Mick Menigoz and Sher Turner were outstanding. Since Mick owns his own boat, he knows it and takes care of it better than your typical captain-for- hire. Their local knowledge coupled with knowing their boat can enhance your cruise by going to cooler places and/or doing different things than you could otherwise.

Sher´s attention to detail, energy, and hard work make her absolutely the BEST. Her food was OUTSTANDING, and the presentations were terrific. We kept thinking ´this must be a special meal´, but then every meal kept on getting better and better.

They work hard to make sure your group gets to do anything and everything you can think of. You can talk to them about things you like and don´t like, and their experience and local knowledge help them suggest the perfect time and place just for you. You can really come up with your ideal day, ideal week, or any special occasion - and they will work together to make it happen and exceed your expectations.
