During the winter seasons, she went from sailing, to being a ski instructor all over Europe. This year, she is trading in her skis for the tropical waters of the Caribbean! She is passionate about sailing, water sports, diving, running, hiking and just enjoys being physically fit in general. She can’t wait to explore the Caribbean waters and showcase for guests the beauty that the islands hold.

Serenity 4.8 Guest Reviews

April 2023

We all had the most amazing time! Rain or shine. We appreciated how special both of you made this vacation for us. You are both superb teammates for catch phrase, and many more games and adventures! We will miss you!!!

- Adam Flamingo

Incredible Time

Tina was exceptional. Very charismatic and polite. Very informative, helpful. Always smiling. Her ability to handle the boat single handed was impressive. She came across as someone who was very experienced and totally professional. She was calm in handling the boat in what were sometimes difficult conditions.

We got to go to agenda with Tina on the first day. We covered all of the popular destinations – Anegada, Bitter End, The Baths, Normand Island, Jost Van Dyke etc. WE use paddle boats, underwater jets, snorkeling kit, etc.

Thea impressed us all with the range and quality of her cooking. Every meal was different. She did well to accommodate any dietary restrictions/likes/dislikes, and was extremely talented. Everyone was extremely complimentary on Thea’s meals.The meals were restaurant grade presentation and quality. Quantity was just right. Occasional snacks were wonderful.

Largely, Tina and Thea did a great job trying to accommodate our wish list. We understand provisioning is sometimes quite difficult to do in BVI, so we were OK if we didn’t get everything we asked for. If anything this was more than made up with the vast variety of cocktails that were made up.

Special thanks to Tina and Thea for making this the holiday of a lifetime. They really made the whole trip a dream. Thank you!

The Allen family

Tina and Thea,

Thank you for the most amazing week, this trip was unforgettable… And part because we almost lost it when we saw a barracuda. But more so because you both went above and beyond in your level of service and professionalism. Thea, the food was superb. As we told you, it was better than most meals (all that one) we had ashore & frankly better than what we cook at home!
We can’t believe how much we did over seven days. We thoroughly enjoyed every island and the variety of activities we took part in. We will be back!!

Words can’t express how incredible sailing around the BVI’s was. Thank you both for contributing so much to making this happen!

As stated above, the crew of Tina and Thea are very professional and pleasant. They knew what to do, how to do their jobs and confidently directed us. Your could tell they planned ahead for locations and moorings and dock space. Their suggestions on land excursions was accurate and very helpful. Tina and Thea are both Croatian so English is a second language. Their knowledge of English is excellent! I would highly recommend both of them to others considering a charter.

March 2022

Our vacation was beyond amazing!! Thank you!! Richard and I had not been on a vacation since 2020 with COVID took over. Your knowledge, attention to detail and overall engaging and friendly demeanor made this vacation extra special. You are PHENOMENAL!!

You made Susan, Richard and I feel so special. We needed to disconnect and lose ourselves in this most beautiful BVI and so we did because of you!! The new places you took us to, the guided tours, the great food, the time we spent with you, and my surprise birthday celebration are unforgettable memories we will treasure always!

We also loved all your toys - full face masks, underwater Gopro, paddle boards, scooters, and the that´s what she said card game... lol!

We can´t wait to visit the Rikija Lounde at the Kent Hotel with you and show you some fun places in Miami when you visit. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon and experiencing a new adventure (Croatia) as you are indeed the Captain of choice. We love you Captain Tina!! Thank you!! Till we meet again soon!

March 2022

Wow. Just wow!
I knew I would have a good time just because I was with Richard and Ann, but... This trip goes in my top 5 and I am ready to do it again with the same crew! Painkillers, conch, lobster, best of Anegada, was the best of the best! You all were more than we expected. Skipper, Captain, Nurse, Chef, Dishwasher, Crew, Plumber, Woman - very professional, but lovely person with a big heart. I applaud you and you are adored by all of us. Be strong girlfriend! Joyed meeting joy, cherish good friends! We are so luck to have met you all and thank you for helping us to celebrate birthdays that were very special. You are family now. Most of all know that life is short, enjoy all the moments, especially good people. Peace, health, and happiness!

February 2022

Thank you for such an amazing trip! You were/all the best captain. If you are ever in DC/Michigan, please give us a call so we have a chance to show you a great time! This was an unforgettable trip! I will definitely be practicing my wake boarding skills/jumping in case we ever get the chance to go with you again:) Every stop was amazing! The only thing that I would change is the amount of sunscreen I used - ROASTED! Thank you again for everything. Love you!

A really amazing, once in a lifetime experience. Sleeping under the stars, sailing under the sun, and snorkeling under the water. A wonderful and fun filled trip. This was the perfect combo of relaxation and excitement. Absolutely lovely!

February 2022

Wow! What a trip to remember indeed! Thanks to the crew we not only saw exquisite fish, coral, FLAMINGOS, swam with turtles and had our very own corona island moment, BUT we ate like kinds, never had to want for anything and had all the sports gear to play in the water. Not to mention, the crew were QUEEENS at limbo! Thank for for a very memorable trip, we drank all the red wine and we appreciate you both going above and beyond.

What a wonderful trip!!!

Serenity is the best boat I saw all week during our arrival in the bays. It is very comfortable, and the cabins are excellent. The variety and quality of arrival toys are amazing. Tina is an excellent hostess, she is always attentive and willing to cover all the requirements of her guests. In addition, we feel very protected by her dedications to trying to take care of the safety of all of us and is always ready to please us. The chef is a very sweet person and the meals very good, worthy of a 5-star restaurant. She was always trying to please us with her culinary treats.

Thanks to the crew, we are trying to repeat this trip next year if they are still the crew on this boat. Thank you very much, this has been an unforgettable week!

2021/Matea

Mattea was amazing! Her food was delicious and I admire the passion and dedication she put in her cooking
and presentations. She always made sure we were stocked up on food and never left us hungry. She also was
an awesome tour guide and took us to beautiful locations to explore and eat. We love you mattea!

2019/Matea

Tia was also amazing. We feel like we made a friend for life. Good was always delicious, waiting for us when
we woke up and the cabin was spotless. Anytime we needed to adjust something or changed our mind on
food she was as nice as can be and took care of it no problem. If it wasn´t for our skipper and host our trip
would´ve been completely different and a lot worse. They were both amazing!

2018/Matea

Wow, she can cook. She made some of the best food I have ever had in my life. Luckily she is from Croatia so
we really got to taste the real Croatian culture. She cooked everyday for us. Would wake up to a full spread of
amazing fruit and meats for breakfast. Then have an amazing Croatian dish for lunch or dinner. She also kept
the yacht so clean. We had 10 guys on the yacht so she did an amazing job with the amount of food
preparation and cleaning.

2017/Matea

By far the best meals I´ve ever had. She was the sweetest person and was so incredibly professional. Did
everything to take care of us. The whole crew adored her.

2016/Matea

Matea exceeded any expectation our crew could hope for from a hostess. The food was amazing. You could
tell how much effort she put in-using her mother’s recipes. She made us bookings as incredible restaurants
and helped us decide on the best tables to book on the nights out. She was also so much fun. Everything from
water balloon fights to getting those first drinks poured- she made it happen.
