Captain Sam Baker
Captain Sam was born and raised in the beautiful coastal town of Beaufort, SC. Growing up he was often on the water, whether it was deep sea fishing, shrimping, water skiing, knee boarding or swimming, most activities included a boat and water! He comes from a large family that was well known around town for their hospitality and love of food, and that legacy continues with him today. Entertaining is in his blood, whether it’s game night, being a tour guide, or showing you how to sail, Sam’s upbeat personality is sure to shine through. Snorkeling and spear fishing are at the top of his list of fun things to do, along with hiking and exploring new and exciting places. No matter the activity, he is sure to keep you entertained and laughing all along the way!

Along with having over 5,000 nautical miles under his belt, he also has his captains license and has completed all the safety training in STCW to ensure his guests can have a great time and know their captain will keep them safe at all times.

Chef Carrie Baker
Carrie was born in the suburbs of Chicago, then at the age of 14 she moved with her family to Beaufort, SC. It was there that she met Sam and the story is one she can’t wait to share! Along with the title of “mom” comes a lot of cooking! Carrie has always enjoyed preparing delicious and healthy food sourced from local ingredients. She can accommodate guests with different dietary restrictions such as gluten and dairy free, vegetarian and pescatarian. Carrie also has a love for baking and guests can enjoy waking up to the amazing smell of fresh bread baking in the oven! Regardless of the preferences, guests are sure to enjoy Chef Carrie’s culinary creations!

When not in the galley, Carrie enjoys snorkeling, scuba diving, paddle boarding, hiking, and going for long walks on the beach looking for sea glass to make jewelry and crafts. She also enjoys a good game night, too!

Crew Bio
We have been happily married for 28 years and have children that Carrie was able to homeschool while we lived in Beaufort, SC. Having lived in a coastal town, it allowed us to grow our love of the ocean. As homebuilders running our own company for over twenty years, we realized that we wanted a hobby that was a little slower pace and quiet. So, in 2016 bought our first sailboat; a 23 ft O’Day Tempest! After learning to sail on Lake Murray in SC and loving it, we decided to try out ocean sailing and booked a charter in Grenada the summer of 2019. We were hooked! It was from this trip that we knew we wanted to make this a lifestyle and share it with others. By 2020, we had upgraded to a 42 ft sailboat and have since logged over 5,000 nautical miles including sailing in the Virgin Islands.

We love everything the islands have to offer and would love to share that with our guests too! From snorkeling with turtles to diving shipwrecks, hiking to ruins and learning their incredible history to relaxing on gorgeous beaches and experiencing the vibrant beach bars, we will be able to cater to our guests’ preferences and give them memories they will never forget and a vacation of a lifetime!

What a memory! Thank you for ordering such great weather!! Our family enjoyed our New Year´s week on the boat with you both as part of this special trip. As Dylan said, ´we will miss Sam and Carrie.´ This was an excellent mix of action with nightlife, day parties, relaxing beaches, snorkeling, Sundhill, paddle boarding, tubing, subwing + turtle spotting!

The food was excellent and so was the company. We really appreciate all that you did for us & we hope to be back real soon!
