Captain Zander
During his childhood, Zander spent summers exploring all parts of Washington including the beautiful San Juan Islands and the Cascade mountains. He also heavily enjoyed sports like soccer and snowboarding when the colder weather settled in. He grew up with a family that had adventuring in their blood, from SCUBA divers and sailors to backpackers and explorers on both sides. When it´s time to relax, Zander´s favorite games included chess and billiards, which he still always loves to bring around for a friendly challenge.

Zander graduated with a degree in marine ecology and studied coral conservation in Thailand which he is still passionate about today. While in education he was a whale watching guide where he discovered the beauty of working with people on the water and sharing his love for the ocean. However, after sailing across the Pacific Ocean he realized that life aboard a sailboat is the best life for him and trained as a professional yacht captain.

With Zander´s diverse range of knowledge and experience he is very comfortable on any vessel he is skippering and his love for the ocean allows him to bring a relaxed and joyful experience to all his guests.

Chef Amanda
Chef Amanda´s passion for cooking and travel has taken her all over the world gaining a diverse set of skills. Her favorite place she worked as a chef was in the mountains of Ecuador where she was free to create and experiment with new dishes. Following this, whilst going to school for Studio Art she eventually landed in Hawaii where she was able to cook and apprentice under Master Chef Phillipe Chin.

Amanda´s love for the underwater world also let her explore new skill sets which led her to becoming a professional underwater videographer for Manta Rays and Dolphins. Love of the Hawaii islands and culture kept her there for 10 years and she now calls Lahaina, Maui her home. She has worked as a whale watching guide, marine naturalist, a diver for a semi-sub, a cook, a hostess and a boat captain.

Her dedication and hard work first allowed her to become first mate on a voyage to Tahiti, Palmyra Atol, New Zealand and various places around the Caribbean. Through her travels she has been able to learn various local delicacies that she loves incorporating into her cooking. Her drive and dedication has given her valuable experiences and knowledge which only travel and time at sea can provide.

Amanda spends much of her spare time in the water; snorkeling, freediving, and spearfishing. She enjoys BBQ´ing on the beach with friends, jumping off waterfalls, a good book in a hammock and playing chess. Fortunately, she has been able to blend her love for sailing, cooking, videography, free diving and marine education.

Amanda has worked as first mate and chef on various charter vessels from 40 - 60ft over the past 10 years and more recently together with Zander. Her cooking and menus have developed during her travels and vegetarian, tapas, vegan and gluten free requests can be easily accommodated. She enjoys creating healthy fresh meals with locally sourced ingredients and combines cooking with excellent customer service and a good knowledge of bar tending. Most importantly, Amanda´s diving and fishing skills mean there will be fresh fish on the menu!


Zander and Amanda have worked on crewed charter vessels together since they met. Arriving in the Grenadines in September 2022, they have over 3,000 nautical miles together operating crewed charters and are fulfilling their common dream to create unique experiences together in the Grenadines for their charter guests. Amanda has a warm personality, responsible nature, and excellent sense of judgement. This is matched with strong water skills and an eclectic knowledge of the culinary arts. Zander was born into a family of sailors and explorers and was sailing before he can talk. He has an calm and attentive personality with a wide range of knowledge about sailing and the marine environment. They look forward to welcoming you onboard NeuroSeas to experience the real Grenadines, the sailing, the marine life and the true caribbean culture.

NeuroSeas Guest Reviews

An Amazing Sail - Oct 2022

We had an amazing sail through the Grenadines. It was everything I hoped for and the crew were superb.

Amanda and Zander - Reviews March 2022 - On Charter together before joining NeuroSeas

Zander and Amanda provided outstanding sailing and customer service. Both were very knowledgeable about the islands, marine life and everything ocean. We were fortunate to see whales, turtles and bottlenose and spinner dolphins. Amanda led us on an amazing snorkeling adventure where we saw so many types of fish, sea urchins and turtles. Thank you for a great trip!

Zander and Amanda Reviews February 2022 - On charter before joining NeuroSeas

Zander and Amanda were simply amazing. Zander is a great captain and very knowledgeable and friendly. Amanda´s experience with ocean life and great attitude is infectious. They both went the extra mile to ensure we had a blast. One of the best trips of our lives!

Zander and Amanda were a fantastic crew and very friendly. They took great care of us! We were educated about the whales and got some great pictures. We thought the overcast and windy weather would inhibit our plans but it turned out great. Amanda showed us all kinds of underwater life and we were up close and personal with the turtles. The lunches and breakfasts were good too!

A Lifetime of Memories - January 2022

Thank you for an amazing voyage. Lisa is the best exploding kitten player and cook. David is the best Captain ever. I had a blast.

Thank you for a lifetime of memories. We wish you all the best and please look us up in Orlando. Also Thank you for feeding my babies for 10 days.

David and Lisa, thank you so much for such an amazing trip. It was so much fun to travel through the Grenadines with you guys on NeuroSeas. We enjoyed all the journeys and adventures we went on land too. The both of you are so skilled at what you do and have incredible skills that all-rounded the trips success. We hope your new year is filled with lots of joy.

A Dream Come Through - Dec 2021

The idea of this trip has been a dream of ours for a while - a real bucket list trip. Our expectations for the trip were high and we worried we could be disappointed because dreams don´t always translate to reality well. But we didn´t need to worry - you gave us a trip, a vacation, a memory that will last a lifetime and that met all our expectations. We thank you!

What a way to recover from a difficult year or two ... This experience was worth the wait. You are both amazing people. You are both amazing people. You are a great team and you are each so skilled at so many things. We sincerely hope we can stay in each others lives. We are hoping to set sail with you again and will really look forward to planning that trip & experience with you. You are both so well quipped to do anything you set your sights on doing. We wish you success in everything you chose to do, and we hope you always chose to dance when you are standing beside the ocean. (Lisa, you will explain this reference to David).

Thank you for everything & for giving us a piece of peaceful heaven for a week. Karen

The Best Sailing trip -Nov 2021

An Amazing Holiday - Nov 2021

You guys are the best Captain and Chef we have ever had! I wish you much success. No rush. Enjoy the Ride.

What an amazing holiday! So relaxing and well cared for. You guys rock! Thank you.
Thank you again. Your attention to us was amazing. We have come to thoroughly enjoy David asking us ´´may I offer you a drink´´. Lisas food and preparations and presentation was 5 star! Such a comfortable boat! This has been a cruise we will always remember. New friends, good food, sun and sea, blue sky, laughter, yoga, snorkelling and diving. Thank you

Thank you - July 2021

It was such a pleasure being onboard NeuroSeas for a week. Laughing, talking, sharing stories...This trip was much needed and I feel I have been ´´awakened´´. The ocean has always called to me and this trip has been amazing. Lisa is a chef extraordinare! The two crew work together so well and are just meant for each other. We hope to see you all again!

BEST Vacation Ever! July 2021

This was by far the BEST vacation I have ever been on. I really do not have words to express how great it was. This was mainly due to your team- David and Lisa. As someone who has a very intense and stressful job... and I make a lot of decisions and take care of people. I have always dreamed of a vacation where there were ZERO decisions to be made and I was taken care of. IT HAPPENED. David and Lisa were amazing hosts and I will consider them lifelong friends. The trip was safe, beautiful, well planned, well provisioned, and just plain fun. I want to plan another trip back!!!

The highlights:
Lisa´s cooking: It is 5 star. Nothing less. She is beyond resourceful and was able to provide us local fare.
David´s calm demeanor and ability to make recommendations. His ties to the local places was amazing! He was also a good leader. He made recommendations and plans that he knew we would enjoy. He learned our preferences, as did Lisa, fast.
Their social skills and hospitality is something I have never experienced at this level.
The boat was beautiful and a perfect amount of space for us
The Grenadines are one of the most beautiful places on this Earth. I will come back!
The COVID barriers -- taken care of by all of you. We were not getting our test results back and David made some calls to the doctor and you and BAM.... the results were there. That is GREAT service.

Cheers!

What an amazing, once in a lifetime adventure! June 2021

We could not have asked for better host - kind, full of information, fun, and curated the perfect itinerary. The food was spectacular and we will never forget our own private concert. We will be forever grateful for this experience.

We had a Great Time! February 2021

1. Crew Friendliness: Extremely friendly
2. Crew Knowledge: Captain knew the routes, the best places to harbor, and brought us to some terrific locations.
3. Quality of Service: Excellent
4. The Professionalism of Crew: They were terrific, but not so professional that they were unable to fit in and be fun
5. Value of the Cost + Expenses Charter: I didn´t pay, so not sure!
6. On-Board Cuisine: 4 star - actually, probably 5 star. Amazing food!
7. Destination / Location: Delightful! And a picnic on a small deserted beach one day that was breathtaking
8. Quality & Variety of Water-Sports & Equipment: Good enough.
9. Overall Satisfaction: VERY SATISFIED! We had a great time!

Could there have been a more perfect Sail?

We have had a terrific time with our own accomplished captain David and our creative chef Lisa! hospitality was the word of each day and we sailed, sang, snorkelled and enjoyed conversation. When can we do it again?!
Thank you for providing us with such a great boat and an exceptional crew! The bar has been raised for our next sail!

The best service we have ever received

I am writing this email to give my absolutely highest recommendation to Captain David and Cook Lisa. We had the pleasure of sailing with them on S/V Lagoon in the Grenadines March 7 – 14, 2020. Our last charter was on a crewed Oyster 56, and we felt this most recent trip with David and Lisa was the best service we have ever received.

Captain David was extremely knowledgeable, handling technical issues that would have turned us into port while we were under sail, allowing us to continue our vacation without any hiccups. He also offered nightly knot tying courses much to the delight of my husband and children! We had been the Grenadines previously and David showed us several new spots we hadn’t been to that really completed the vacation.

Cook Lisa handled the wide variety of dietary needs and requests expertly. We sailed with one friend who is dairy-free and two children ages 5 and 7. Many of our meals required several different options and all of us raved about everything we ate. Lisa also kept the boat incredibly tidy, as a mom of two, I felt like I was truly on vacation.
Thank you
(Review from previous catamaran Lagoon 45 - Grenadines)

Review of our sorely missed Captain David!

From my family’s first meeting with our captain, it was evident to me that his professionalism, skill and the manner with which he effortlessly, yet adeptly and even humorously ensured the expanded knowledge and seamless working in sync as a crew and as the family we are were enhanced by David‘s care and sincere concern and enjoyment of being pet of the family during one of many exciting games of UNO!

David is one of those rarest of treasures to experience whom endears and elicits such complete trust that he holds those in his care above his own well being and it’s known simply by being in his presence for a short time and without a word said it’s obvious the man‘s sincerity and generous humanity flash like a neon sign above his head yet his humble and selfless nature belies that flashiness with showing so clearly the natural humanity and care of this man for his job and for his great responsibility. Not for one moment did I fail to remember David to be a good and kind gentleman and when necessary, a diplomatic but decisive and respectful leadership that we all respected and worked to ensure the safety of those in this world I love most. David made sure of their safety and therefore I was endlessly thankful yet also knowledgeably at ease.
I thank you and I not only enjoyed and leaned from a consummate professional seaman but I feel I’ve also made a friend and will return regularly due to his care while in his custody. He protected my children as his own I’m certain he’d feel too but such extravagant character traits are admirable and made our trip so much more relaxed and fulfilling. I would recommend his services as captain without reservation.
(Review sent to broker from previous catamaran - Lagoon 45 - Grenadines)

A huge thank you

A huge thank you for creating such tasty, delicious meals for us last week .
A highlight of the day for the girls was the forthcoming meal!
We really enjoyed the balance and variations of your menus with fresh herbs, healthy juices etc which is not easy with restricted shopping. We really liked the fact that where possible you used foods that were local to the country also. Fresh and fewer air miles !
We were so pleased you and David also joined us for meals with your lovely smile, humour and chat .
Fondest wishes
(Review from previous catamaran - Lagoon 45, Grenadines)

The best possible recommendation!

Thank you. We stayed on board totally four days with Lisa in the Grenadines.
She was our hostess, made all meals and served us drinks before we even knew we wanted.
Lisa contributed a lot in order to make our trip around the Grenadines an memorable one!
She is very friendly and made the trip to an excellent journey. She has a natural way showing hospitality which made our holiday fantastic. The food she prepared was also excellent and she knew very well how to cook tasteful food for us.
She has not asked for a recommendation, but we all are so satisfied that we wanted to do it anyway– we would like to give her our crew the best possible recommendation!
