Meet the crew!

Captain Jean Paul (JP): Your Captain aboard Source of Wander was raised in a Sea-faring Family. Having grown up in and around the Sea, JP’s affinity for sailing is in his blood. His first voyage with his father at age 6 cemented his love for all things Sea, Sailing and Ships. Decades later, Paul, was also so very fortunate be able to complete his father’s last voyage on the Sea, together, as father and son, a memory of a lifetime.

Rest assured you are in the best of care with Captain Paul. As his USCG License reads, Master of Sail, Steam & Motor Upon Oceans and Unlimited Pilots from Galveston Sea Buoy to the Houston Ship Channel Turning Basin, Capt. Paul is always willing and ready to share his knowledge with guests on board.

After 27 years as a State commissioned Houston Ship Pilot moving over 12,000 ships, he retired to his 46’ catamaran. Retirement did not last long as his friends and cohorts continued to want to sail with them. Paul hauled himself out of retirement in order to share his love of the water. He enjoys turning people on to the beauty, the jewels of the Virgin Islands, and some his favorite secret hideaways!. As Capt Ron famously iterated, “If its gonna happen…its gonna happen out there! Now let’s get out there!” Can’t wait to see you “out there” aboard Source of Wander

Chef Kendra has a passion for food and is experienced with entertaining guests rooted in her Latina background. Born and raised in Midwest Ohio where her father is from, her Panamanian mother allowed her the space and grace to work in the kitchen at a very young age. Entertaining friends is a favorite activity and pleasing people´s palates is the goal.

Kendra Wilt

Kendra enjoys traveling, meeting new people, and discovering new savory recipes from around the world especially the Mediterranean with healthy eating in mind. Previously as a baker and young mother, Cake by Kendra made special occasion cakes for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays.
Especially memorable is making her favorite flourless chocolate cake covered in homemade dark chocolate fondant she made for a gluten-free bride and her daughter Natalia´s quinceañera birthday. As a mother of a daughter with gluten allergies Kendra has learned to prepare food catering to food allergies.

Living in Panama, her mother´s native country for over seven years allowed many opportunities to expand my palate from Midwestern roots to her true Caribbean . Kendra has a keen sense of taste to ensure her food is well seasoned and packed with flavor. Kendra Vanessa met Captain John Paul while visiting Grenada the Spice Island for a family reunion. He invited Kendra and her mother to visit Source of Wander and since then have maintained a growing relationship. She was drawn to JP´s similar passion for entertaining and everything sand & sea. Here she´s able to fulfill her dreams providing guests with nutritious and delicious meals.

My small town Ohio neighbors will remember Kendra for her Cinnamon Rolls made to raise funds for her study trip to France. Vanessa is bilingual speaking English, Spanish, and also some French. She loves outdoor activities from hiking, cycling, swimming, and Stand up Paddle Boarding.

Kendra has her B.A. in Latin American and Caribbean Studies with Business from Florida State University Panama Canal Branch.
