Hailing from South Africa, Wouter grew up going on weekend retreats with his family to engage in water sports where he transformed into a water dog and will be able to teach you some basic water sport tricks. He started sailing around the Mediterranean and Caribbean working for a large flotilla company. In the last year Wouter has sailed a catamaran from Cape Town to Grenada and delivered a couple of boats throughout the Caribbean. In the past year, he has been working as a sailing instructor for Sailing Virgins where he has had the pleasure to teach and share his love for the sport with others. With a RYA Yachtmaster Offshore ticket and fully Certified ASA instructor, Wouter will be sure to teach you a thing or two about sailing if you dare to get your hands dirty.

Kelly was first introduced to the yachting world in 2016 on a solo trip to Australia when she boarded her first charter as a guest in the Whitsunday Islands. The following year Kelly embarked on a couple more sailing trips to Croatia and the Caribbean, which became the inspiration for leaving her job as a designer in London and making the transition to yachting. In 2019, Kelly started her adventure on the water cooking around Greece and Croatia and most recently worked in the Caribbean before relocating to The Bahamas to join Kittiwake.
Coming from a family of cooks, Kelly has always enjoyed spending time in the kitchen so it was no surprise that after attending The Avenue Cookery School she only strengthened her culinary skills and grew her passion for combining flavors and textures to create interesting dishes. Kelly is also able to work with any dietary requirements and will tailor the menu specifically to you.

Wouter and Kelly met in Croatia while working for the same company. They are both outgoing characters who love meeting new people and look forward to welcoming you aboard Kittiwake for a week of adventure and exploring.

Kittiwake Guest Reviews

Landers Charter

Thanks to Captain Wouts and Chef Kelly for an awesome week and experience! From the first day they both made us feel like we were family. The trip would not have been the same with anyone else. They made the kids feel comfortable and like family as well. It was such a pleasure getting to know them both and we look forward to seeing them again.

Gaw Charter

Best vacation ever - leaving the stresses of life behind! Wouts and Kelly are amazing humans and we are so thankful for them keeping our family safe while giving us the adventure of a lifetime. The places and exploration exceeded our imagination, the food was incredible, healthy, tasty - just amazing, but the company was the best! Thank you to Wouts and Kelly for sharing a bit of themselves with our family.

Ronesi Charter

This was our first charter family vacation and wished we had done it sooner! It was the best family vacation we ever experienced. For the first time, as parents, we were not exhausted after the vacation for having to plan daily excursions and meals throughout the trip. Captain Wouts was incredible with our three teen boys. He kept them busy everyday. His patience and thoughtfulness with teaching the boys how to wakeboard was a highlight. Captains daily excursions were out of this world! He knew all the special spots and was able to get us in and out well before the tourist crowds. He was so kind and willing to answer all our yachting questions as we are planning on purchasing a similar boat when we retire.

Chef/Crew Kelly was equally remarkable. Her food was out of this world! My picky boys cleaned their plate every single meal! She and Wouts kept our drinks full, bellies filled and memories over-flowing. By the end of the trip, they felt like family and it was hard to say goodbye. I cannot recommend this Crew enough for a family experience that will last a lifetime!

Klein Charter

Capt Wouts and Chef Kelly made this trip an amazing time, we really enjoyed everything and we are so grateful to meet such lovely people - as they are - and to spend such a great time together! Thanks a lot for caring, we will never forget and hope to see them both again!

Hale Charter

Capt Wouts and Chef Kelly are far better than we could´ve ever imagined. They are true professionals and have the absolute best personalities a charter guest could ask for. They´re excellent with children and wise beyond their years. Kelly is an amazing chef, she went so far beyond our expectations. She´s also a great crew member when Capt Wouts needed assistance with the anchor, dinghy, etc. The boat owner is very lucky to have found them.

This trip, the boat, and most importantly the crew made this vacation
worth every penny.

Bell Charter

Wow! What an amazing trip! The crew both exceeded our expectations! So much thought and attention to detail made our trip the BEST sailing trip ever!
Wouts and Kelly are talented, professional and fun and a perfect fit for us. We will certainly come back. Kittiwake is well managed, comfortable and great floor plan. We will see you again soon.

Lapham Charter

What an amazing week we have had sailing on the Kittiwake. Everything has been wonderful - From the blue ocean, the white sails, to the delicious food. We have loved exploring the Exumas on this sturdy vessel. We will be back!!
-Charles & Camille


My husband and I, along with two friends, decided to charter Kittiwake and sail the Exumas. I can say without reservation it was one of the most enjoyable and restorative vacations we´ve ever taken. The new boat was ultra-comfortable and spacious with plenty of places to curl up and read or watch the mind-blowing scenery unfold. And Kittiwake´s many amenities provided a luxurious touch.
Most importantly, though, was the crew. From the moment we came onboard, Captain Wouts and Chef Kelly took care of us in every respect. Their professionalism and commitment to our enjoyment never ceased to impress us. Wouts MUST have gotten tired of my incessant questions about the boat’s operation…...but you’d never know it. He’s a delight and went the extra nautical mile to take care of us. Chef Kelly produced the most delectable meals, including some award-worthy desserts. She’s a highly talented chef with a bright outlook, all of which is reflected in her dishes. There’s so much more I could say about this trip. Five out of five stars. It would be impossible to place a value on how much we loved it. We’ll be back.

-Dave L. and Stuart M.

Eckerson Charter

What a great time! Wouts & Kelly were knowledgable, efficient and most of all, lots of fun. Wouts so patient with sailing instruction and especially the tying of knots. Kelly is an excellent cook of a wide variety of dishes. Both, however, are terrible card players, and Kelly won´t be making singing her new career! Seriously though, would definitely run this trip back on Kittiwake and its great crew!
