Prepare to be captivated by Ken´s journey through customer service and hospitality. Born in Calgary, Alberta, his destiny took shape at the family´s steakhouse, ´Blackbeard´s.´ This unique pirate ship-inspired establishment fueled Ken´s longing for adventure.

His passion for scuba diving ignited in Mexico, leading to a transformative life path. At Club Med in the Bahamas, he embraced scuba instruction, but it was the British Virgin Islands that stole his heart. Five years immersed in diving and sail charters ensued.

Returning to Canada, Ken pursued real estate while never abandoning his love for diving and sailing. Purchasing a sailboat on Lake Huron, he established his own sailing school. But the call of the ocean led him back to the BVI, his true passion.

Ken shares his expertise and enthusiasm for sailing, diving, and marine life, creating unforgettable experiences. Let him transport you to a realm of wonder on the ultimate vacation.

Picture this: Julie, hailing from a captivating French town in Ontario, Canada. Her summers were filled with the ethereal beauty of the lake, indulging in swimming, boating, fishing, and camping. Yet, the cold winters left her longing for a life by the warm embrace of the ocean.

From her early days as a Developmental Service Worker to her experience in Customer Service, Julie always sought to provide the best service possible. However, her true awakening came when Captain Ken introduced her to the world of sailing.

For three enchanting summers, Julie lived on Ken´s majestic sailboat, learning the art of sailing. This experience taught her the importance of embracing life and happiness. Following her heart´s desire, Julie embarked on a journey to become a Chef, graduating with honors from Ashworth College.

Now, as a Crewed Yacht Chef and 1st Mate, Julie proudly lives her dream. Infusing her passion for cuisine with her commitment to excellence, she creates unforgettable experiences for guests onboard.

We celebrated our 30th Anniversary and it was truly AMAZING! Honestly I was a little afraid of the whole boat thing and from the minute we stepped on Ken and Julie made everything wonderful! Our favorite times were sailing and swimming, just being with our best friends celebrating life ! The views are breathtaking! Ken playing guitar and singing ♥ Thank you for your kindness and for working so hard for all of us! The food was spectacular! It is a vacation we will never forget! The boat is beautiful and thanks again for everything. Hope to cruise with ya’ll again! – David & Joanne - Springdale, AR

Cruising from spot to spot was one of my favs, I enjoyed the sun, the clouds, the rain, the food, music and even the quiet. The hospitality was plentiful and genuine, Jules & Ken made sure of that. Captain got us everywhere we needed to go, Julie cooked her heart out and it was delicious. We were celebrating my 50th birthday and it was a trip of my lifetime. I love this boat. The water was perfect everyday. Thank you to Captain and Jules for the wonderful gift of boat life, Cheers Mate. – Shelley - Tulsa

Ken´s knowledge of the islands was superb! Great snorkeling spots and the best beaches! Julie, I don’t know how you do it - amazing food! - You are not an “iron chef,´ you are the titanium chef!
And

What a relaxing and enjoyable vacation! Ken and Julie made everything so easy, the food – breakfast, lunch and dinner were beautiful, delicious and nutritious. All of the moorings were picturesque and Ruby One was the perfect fit for 3 couples. Thank you both everything.

We all had such a great time on Ruby One our captain and chef were very knowledgeable about all the islands and what an amazing chef. They were both very professional and a pleasure to be around. I had to fly out for a couple of days and the Captain was a big help solving logistical problems. We would highly recommend this boat and crew! We will for sure do this again, thanks for the memories.
