Chef / First MateJustin Melton

Captain Adriana
Captain Adriana was born and raised in Puerto Rico. She grew up in and out of the water but has always had the privilege of being on boats most of her life. Her love for sailing developed in her 20’s when her dad bought his first cruising sailboat. This lead to her being able to explore some of the most exotic sailing destinations in the Caribbean. Previous to her sailing to these exotic destinations she went to college in Florida where she got a her BBA degree and also where she met Chef Justin. During her time in Florida she also worked in the service industry where she was able to fine tune her passion for entertaining. Coming from this background she was able to combine her love of the water and hosting into the perfect career for her being a charter captain. She is a very determined young woman making her way in this industry which is thanks to being such a hard worker.

Captain Adriana and Chef Justin met during her time in Florida while she was in college back in 2018. When they first met they had an instant connection they both bonded over their love of the ocean and good food. Justin knew that Adriana was going to set sail very soon after she graduated so they remained friends for over 3 years. Adriana was always telling him come join her in her sailing adventures and he finally did in 2022. Where they rekindled their relationship and decided to pursue the sailing charter career in the Caribbean together.

Chef Justin
I grew up near the Intercostal Waterways of Atlantic Beach, Florida. A lot of my childhood was spent at the beach; water sport activities, BBQ’s and organized sports. The community I was raised around utilized its coast through the commerce of tourism and recreation for locals. Sports were a big part of my life as an only childhood; baseball, American football, fútbol and golf were very popular. Finding my own path in my teenage years I fell in love with surfing and began competitions in my early 20’s. Surfing broadened my horizons for travel and the urge to see more.

My culinary background started as far back as I can remember on school holiday saying at my grandmothers house in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Masking biscuits from scratch and banana pudding. As a child I remember being so curious how a bunch of different ingredients can supply smiles and comfort in other peoples lives. I carry that in my cooking, creating dishes that not only provide sustenance but joy and curiosity. Food has always been my glue to relationships. I’ve gotten to travel through Europe, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean eating and cooking along the way. Cooking has opened more doors than I could have ever imagined. Professionally I have acquired over ten years creating menus, managing operations and cooking in restaurants publicly and providing service for private events. I often find myself cooking comfort foods, French, and Italian techniques infused with a creole flair.

Memento Amori will be taking me into my second year as a watch chef. I was drawn to this lifestyle by wanting to share with others the things I enjoy most in life. Those being: being out on the water and getting a taste of what living really is and being able to enjoy it with my partner with whom I share the passion of traveling, navigating & good food. Being on the water with my partner brings out the best in us and challenges us to improve and stay creative . Letting weather decide which course to take and utilizing a team to accomplish the goal at hand. Food for me always brought people together, I am happy to be able to share that gift.

Another passion of mine is wood working and carpentry as well as custom home building. Everything from laying foundations to finish trim work. Some of these projects of historical value and architectural mimicking in reference to photos and records of one hundred plus years old. Being on the boat allows me to utilize these skills and remain creative in problem solving as well as repairs. Activities that I enjoy in my free time fishing, kayaking, and meditation. Whenever I get the opportunity you can find me surfing and or creating art. I usually carry art supplies with me and a paperback novel. When in doubt you can most likely find me making some food in the kitchen.

Memento Amori Guest Reviews

July 2023

It´s rare in this world to receive the quality of service that we received from Capt. Adriana and Justin. Words can´t adequately describe the appreciation we have for your kindness and professionalism. You are at the top of your game. We will 100% rebook a charter with you!

July 2023

We had such a wonderful adventure! Absolutely love and recommend Capt. Adriana and Justin - they made us feel at home and both bring wonderful gifts that complement each other!

May 2023

Our trip to the BVI on Memento Amori far exceeded all of our expectations! It was one of our best vacations ever! Captain Adriana was very professional and a great sailor….She arranged 2 wonderful days of scuba for us in the BVI. I can’t say enough about 1st mate and chef, Justin. His culinary skills are superb and the presentations were exquisite. Every meal was a fine dining experience.

The two of them were instrumental in making our trip a step above all others.
The catamaran was beautiful and spacious for 4 couples (each having our own double bed and head). We spent mornings snorkeling off the rear or playing with toys in the water…Evenings on the covered fly deck were magical with a pitcher of painkillers! The 48’ bali was new and meticulously clean. We had everything we could have wanted….My favorite was the cappuccino bar with Justin’s yummy cookies!….I am looking forward to sailing on the Memento Amori again soon!!

Memento Amori was our home for 10 days. It was such a beautiful and well provisioned catamaran. Meal time was always special with great food and a beautifully set table.
Happy hour on the fly bridge with a hardtop cover was amazing. Breeze, view and shade coupled with fantastic libations- the recipe for perfection. Lots of fun toys to hang out on when we weren´t snorkeling. Captain and Chef were great. They were very accommodating and worked hard to make our trip special. We would definitely book this boat again.

Loved, loved, loved spending 10 days on Memento Amori!!!

We´ve been on lots of sailboats and have always fought for the moving shady spots. Memento Amori´s large shaded fly bridge was amazing!

Can´t say enough about the gourmet foods that Justin whipped up for us. Loved the fresh herb garden on board and the espresso machine was an added treat!

Adriana is an incredibly experienced captain, especially to be so young! And she makes some mean cocktails!!!

I would be living on the sailboat with them if life weren´t in the way. Can´t wait to go back next year!
