Giovanni

Gio is a knowledgeable, friendly Captain who finds his fulfilment by connecting people to the sea and enjoying their experiences vicariously through them. Born and raised in London, UK, his career began as a dinghy sailing and windsurfing instructor in the UK, Greece, Bahrain. Next, he moved to Australia to gain a degree in marine biology, conduct underwater acoustic research and guide marine wildlife tours. He then took a job in the offshore oil and gas industry as a marine wildlife observer & spent two years on seismic survey ships all around the world. Eventually he bought his own 50ft sailboat in Florida and used it to lead documentary filmmaking expeditions thousands of miles around the Caribbean, resulting in work published by National Geographic. He is also a surfer, an expert freediver, and a PADI Divemaster. Gio takes great pride in ensuring his guests feel comfortable and safe while guiding them on the adventure of a lifetime.

Gio is be joined by Chef/Mate Sarah. Sarah started yachting 9 years ago for her love of the ocean and travel. She soon discovered her passion for culinary arts and her desire to focus on being in the galley. Working her way up, Sarah was soon cooking for charter guests and on private yachts.
She enjoys creating dishes inspired by international cuisine. In particular, Thai, Indian, Indonesian, French, Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, Middle Eastern, and Fusion. She has travelled to many of these countries and taken classes first hand from the locals.
Additionally, Sarah has a passion for health and nutrition. She educated her self on cooking for different dietary needs such as gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, dairy free, and paleo/high protein.
Sarah has a degree in visual arts which she loves bringing into her work. Beautiful presentation is very important as she learned very early in her career that the first bite is with your eyes. Additionally, she considers cooking something like painting with flavours.
In her past time Sarah enjoys diving, hiking, traveling, photography, and learning new languages. She is also a 500 hour Yoga Alliance trained instructor and loves sharing this with anyone she meets.

Lolalita Guest Reviews

Guests aboard LOLALITA in late June, 2017, said:

It was truly one of the best vacations I’ve ever had. The crew couldn´t have done anything better. They were very easy to be around, friendly, humorous, and fun to hang around with. All this while doing their jobs with ease and always trying to accommodate us in all areas. We felt like they were part of our ´family´. They made this trip extremely enjoyable. They were very knowledgeable about all aspects of the boat and made us feel very secure. Every meal was top notch, tasty and presentation was always beautiful. The charter was well worth every penny we paid. Never being to BVI, everywhere we went was better than the one before in some way. Loved it all. Capt. Gio knew exactly where to go for good, dives, snorkeling or to just sit back and enjoy the beauty. There was plenty of things for all of us to do. Overall satisfaction was definitely a 10/10 for me. Can´t wait to be able to do it again!! Thanks for all that you did for us!

Gio and Renee,
Thank you so much for an amazing week. I know I speak for the entire family when I tell you we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Your sense of adventure and attention to the kids was as much a part of the trip as the boat herself. Everything was fantastic!!
Thank you for the wonderful slideshow and please forward along any additional pics you might have.
I have CC´d Sue and the girls on this and we look forward to staying in touch with you both. Good luck to you both and we wish you calm seas ahead. I hope our paths cross again soon.

Cheers,
The Thompsons

Guests aboard LOLALITA in Spring, 2017

We had a fantastic time on Lolalita!

The crew accommodated all of our needs and desires in order to make this trip unforgettable, especially for the kids. We threw a big birthday bash for our V.I.P. family member (stuffed animal Beaver) that included a customized, homemade beaver cake from the chef, streamers, and even fun hats! For Easter, first mate Renee created an easter egg treasure hunt that had everyone, even the adults, laughing and exploring. Each place that Captain Gio took us to was even more beautiful than the last. In the end the only issue was that we didn’t have enough time - so the crew let us extend our trip by 24 hours just to squeeze in even more fun and relaxation.
Thank you, Lola! - Jason
