We want to provide an exemplary charter experience whilst maintaining your vessel to a high standard. Safety always comes first, but that doesn´t mean our guests can´t have fun too! Are you interested in exploring the underwater world as well? We can guide you through the reefs while either diving or snorkeling just as comfortably as we navigate the islands above the water. We pride ourselves on making every charter a unique experience by catering to each guest´s preferences and requests.
Neither of us ever imagined we´d be living and working on a boat, but can no longer imagine life anywhere else! Combined, we have over 30 years of diving experience, over half of which is in a professional capacity. We met working for a dive charter company in coastal North Carolina. Caitlin had completed a degree in Marine Science from Rutgers University and was aiming to increase her professional dive experience while Jeff was a newly minted captain after many years working abroad in Asia and Central America as a dive instructor. In the past seven years, we´ve worked in the US, Fiji, and the BVI, transitioning from resort and dive shop management to running charter boats and haven´t looked back since!

March 2019 Charter

Jeff and Caitlin were great! Very professional and lots of fun. They interacted with our group perfectly. The boat is amazing and perfectly maintained. Food was awesome and made from scratch daily. We had several restaurant owners on board. All were impressed with Caitlin´s abilities in the galley.

Best Vacation Ever

Our charter was one of the best vacations we have ever done. The personal touches by the crew made it a great event. Their marine knowledge, especially, made a big difference whilst snorkeling - every session was very unique. Caitlin is a great chef and put special touches on each meal. Jeff is an extremely competent Captain,very focused on safety, but he also made some fun drinks! We can’t wait to charter again with Captain Jeff and Caitlin!
~The Unsers

Caitlin and Jeff are real Pros...

Ann and I just got back ...Jeff and Caitlin are head and shoulders superior to any crew that we have ever had.

Caitlin has a remarkable ability to create complex and subtle flavors which add several layers of depth to her meals.

Every happy hour Jeff served us a different cocktail creation, all of which were perfectly light and refreshing, and none of which I (a semi-professional drinker) have ever tasted (the setting...at anchor lounging on the new bolsters under the new fore deck shades...certainly doesn´t hurt the taste of the cocktails!) .

Caitlin and Jeff could draw a map of the details of every dive spot from memory and Caitlin has a deep fund of knowledge about of sea life and fish behavior. Every morning Caitlin had made the beds, cleaned the bathrooms and done some sort of magic folding the towels into animal shapes...before we had finished breakfast...we called her the housekeeping Ninja.

All that on top of having delightful personalities! Caitlin and Jeff are real pros.
~Steve and Ann

Perfect For Family Charters

The two of you are a treasure! Thank you so much for keeping us safe (a bit of a challenge with a 3 & 5 year old pair) and taking all of us on a tremendous adventure. But most of all, thank you for the warmth and caring and the amazing attention to gave to our children. They are going to miss you, as shall my wife and I. All the best - we hope this is ´see you later´ and not ´goodbye´- P, T, E, & P. Los Angeles, CA

Praise for Jeff and Caitlin

Jeff and Caitlin attended to our every need. They were the perfect hosts. They made us feel comfortable and safe and were so much fun to hang out with. We just loved them and would highly recommend the crew to anyone looking for the vacation of a lifetime.

Comments from previous Yacht for Jeff and Caitlin

Following up on our trip ... Jeff and Caitlin were exactly as described. Very personable with both the adults and kids. Provided amazing food, and a really delightful atmosphere to sail in and enjoy the BVI. The trip completely lived up to our high expectations.

Thanks again,
Zach

There is no better place to experience the BVI.
