Perpetual Blue Crew Profile
Dwight grew up on the water sailing his entire life with both of his granddad´s being yacht captains before him. He has been delighting guests for over 20 years, imparting his infinite wisdom about all things BVI and, most importantly, always making sure the guests have a blast! He graduated from The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and holds his RYA Master sailing license. Gregarious, affable and always able to make guests smile, he is a true gem in the BVI!
Pia is a native BVIslander where she has lived all her life. Cooking has been a passion since a young age learning from her very talented mother and grandmother the ways of cheffing. Sailing has long been in her blood as well with several family members being yacht captains allowing her to be out to sea from an early age. Just after school her love of cooking led her to found Pia´s Sweets, a confectionary that produced some of the islands most sumptuous treats. After being land locked for many years with the sweet shop the ocean beckoned once more so she decided to bring her extensive cheffing repertoire to BVI island guests. You will love the diversity, presentation, and heartiness of her dishes - not to mention dessert! You will not be disappointed.

Sailing the Seas
Dwight and Pia
We can´t thank you enough for sharing your piece of the world with us. You taught us how to sail the seas, gave us great advice, ´give love to get love´, and shared amazing meals. Until we meet again. Love, Amy & Chick
Daddy & Pia,
You took us under your wings and treated us like family. We were excited to celebrate our 50th bash with our besties but we didn´t know we would have the best Captain, Chef and 1st Mate. You three made the trip feel like we were locals and could hang out with the Mayor. The meals were amazing, drinks were incredible and the tour of the sea was unreal. Until we meet again. Good luck to you two and keep making dreams happen! Love, Bobby & Amy
You are a wonderful person and made our trip xtra special. I ate more foods that I previously did not like - your cooking is amazing. We will definately reach out to you next time we are in BVI. Reach out to your goals, you will/can achieve anything. Michele & Steve, Maitin & Lisa, Debbie & Mitch
Didn´t Want it to End
Nothing short of amazing. We wouldn´t change one thing - except we didn´t want it to end. We so appreciated our crew was from BVI and made us feel like part of their family. It was such a comfortable and casual vibe - right for what we hoped for. I don´t know what they do for each charter, but they made it feel like they tailored our experience to the fun we were hoping to have. The food was to die for, and Pia was super attentive to our needs and wants. If we ever book a trip to BVI again, I would request Dwight, Pia and D´Mari. We loved that they were from the islands and knew everyone and everything about where we went.
P & D -
Thank you for the amazing week in the BVI! We have so many memories that we will cherish! The week full of delicious amazing food, I can only wish I could cook as good as you. We appreciate D taking us to all the best locations on the islands. Good luck to you both and all your adventures in life. You two are so cute and sweet together. Thank you again for the most awesome vacation! You should enjoy all this beauty!
Much love, Kevin and Kim
To our BVI family (Dwight, Pia and D´Mari,
You will hold a special place in our hearts - you all made this such an amazing trip for us. It is no small thing to let someone experience these islands like family. Thank you for being so welcoming. I hope one day we get to return the favor! Matt & Steph
Cane Garden Bay
Dwight and Pia,
We cannot thank you enough for helping make our trip such an incredible success! We are already planning our next time, here in BVI. We loved getting to meet all of your family and friends, especially one of our new favorite spots - Cane Garden Bay. The food was so fresh and absolutely delicious. You both have a gift of entertaining and welcoming strangers to making the feel at home. Till next time, and thanks again. Glenn & Terry, Jason & Lana, Dave & Susan, Scott & Heather

40th Birthday Celebration
Dear Dwight and Pia,
What can I say? You took us in when we were down and out. We love you so much for it. From fallen engines to pirate nights, you made us feel welcomed and tolerated our antics. You made us the most DELICIOUS birthday cake to boot! We will never forget you! Thank you for making this 40th birthday trip the most memorable. Love always, Kelly & Tim, Ellie & Geoff, Halle & Bram
We have had an amazing time with you. Thank you so much. We will miss you so much. We hope to see you some time soon. We love you so much. We will never forget you. From the Barrons and Brealys
Pia! You have a gift with making beautiful, delicious and unique meals! I´m so inspired! You run that kitchen. Thank you for sharing your food magic with us. Thanks Dwight for helping us explore, have fun and make the trip special! Gervase & Kevin
What a trip.
Just got home thru luck and connecting flights delayed. Again, thanks for a wonderful experience! My wife and kids loved it and Hal and Pia were fabulous
You made it happen! Thank you, thank you
We ended the week in White Bay,
I can’t give enough positive feedback for Captain Barzey and Pia. They made us feel like welcome guests to their home.
Blessings for a great day and week!
Captain Hal´s Smile
When we met I saw your nice big smile and immediately knew we were in for a wonderful trip. You took care of us and entertained us and made us feel safe the entire vacation.
Thank you for your educational snippets throughout the trip!
I hope you get to see your granddaughter soon and I wish you happiness always!
Hope our paths cross again soon!
Our group of 8 proved to be no challenge for Tanya even though our group coordinator confirmed only 6 passengers for our charter. Tanya managed to prepare delicious meals for 8 with provisions for 6 every day without ever disappointing us. From airy, velvety scrambled eggs to perfectly crisp bacon and fresh poke bowls to scrumptious sweets — we all wanted to take Tanya home with us. Not only were the meals amazing, they were plated beautifully and not a minute later than when expected. What’s more, she aided the captain in mooring and prepping our group’s trips to land amongst other things, proving she is an expert multitasker. Towards the end our charter when she was done artfully preparing our meals and leaving the galley in pristine conditions, we had an opportunity to engage with her more than we had throughout the trip and confirmed what we already knew: Tanya is a sweet, talented, adventure seeker who loves exploring as much as we do which made it extra special. She is an asset on any vessel. As is the Captain we were fortunate to have: Jacob Albano.
Family Adventure Out Of This World!
Took our family on our 1st charter and it was a blast. Learning to paddleboard (great video´s), diving & snorkeling, great fun. There was an underwater snorkeling spot Capt Jake took us to and it was unbelievable. After long days in the ocean we enjoyed evenings in the bean bag chairs watching the sunsets with a well made sun downer. Chef´s food was tasty and very well presented with a solid nod to seafood and italian cuisine which we love! Thanks for a fantastic week!
Great 2 weeks on Perpetual Blue
´We just got off Perpetual Blue after a 2 week charter and wow, it was fantastic! Capt Jake knew all of the best diving/snorkeling spots and even helped us learn to sail abit. Chef was amazing, food was outstanding - we are very picky eaters (whole foods kind of people) and he provisioned and prepared at an exceptionally high level. Yacht was great, loved the floating bean bag chairs and the underwater scooters which allowed for extended snorkeling/exploring (they last over an hour :) ) Thanks Capt, Chef & 1st mate, had a great time!´

Took the whole gang for my husbands 50th birthday party, it was incredible!
We´ve dreamed of a yachting vacation for years and I finally pulled the trigger, we couldn´t be happier.
From the moment we stepped on Perpetual Blue we were amazed at the level of detail Cap Jake and Chef T gave us. Jake was a rock star captain the food was amazing.
Fabulous food, delicious cocktails, water bean bags, sunsets, and finding great spots every day - all made us feel so special!
Many many thanks!
Capt. Jake Albano
I have had Jake as a private captain for my family several times over the past 3 years, and I would highly recommend him for any of your sailing needs. Jake is both very experienced and a true professional. I would not hesitate to hire him again.
Fair winds & following seas,
Jake Albano has crewed on our Tayana 55 ´Karina´ multiple times. Not only is he an excellent sailor and watchkeeper, he is also well informed on weather and the functioning of all electronics. Jake is always willing to help with projects/repairs that occur during a trip. He is a pleasant addition to any crew and keeps his berth neat and tidy. We would recommend him without reservation.
