Grant Surtees

Born and raised in Durban, on the east coast of South Africa, Grant lived around the water and mountains experiencing all aspects of the outdoors while growing up. Family vacations and weekends where spent taking part in water sports, fishing and riding off-road motorcycles. After finishing college he started a career in sales for Land Rover & Jaguar. While the company car was a great perk, he soon realized that he longed for the outdoors.

Looking for opportunity elsewhere, he gravitated towards yachting. Having a strong background with water sports and boats he found no difficulty adapting to that new life style which began in the South of France working on super yachts. He then made the move to the BVI working on catamarans and realized that the interactions with guests and being apart of something bigger, someone´s happiness and memorable moments was really what drove him.

Outside of yachting, Grant´s other passions are kitesurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing and golf. He looks forward to sharing those activities and stories with guests.

Dominic Horl

Born and raised in Germany, Dominic started his culinary training at a very young age in the prestigious Restaurant 17Fuffzig and continued his culinary journey through Europe in countries like France, Spain and Germany working in several Michelin Star restaurants like the Restaurant “Überfahrt” in Munich for the next 12 years.

Years spent at these world class restaurants gave him a extraordinary flavor profile and a high skill set allowing him to please every guest he welcomes aboard. In addition, his having lived in so many European countries with a great wine culture, wine is a big part of his life, of which he manifested into a Sommelier Degree. This is Dominic´s third season aboard yachts where he enjoys culminating all the above into the perfect bespoke experience for each charter.

Sunshine Baby 2 4.8 Guest Reviews

An absolutely heavenly week with Paula and Simon

An absolutely heavenly week with Paula and Simon on Sunshine Baby 2. The boat is new and luxurious and gorgeous, and the USVIs are breathtaking. But more than the setting, what really blew us away, was our crew. Paula and Simon turned this into the trip of a lifetime. We were Paula’s first all-vegan charter but you would have thought she was a completely vegan chef. Every single meal was 5-star quality. We are so spoiled now. How will we ever eat well again without Paula?? Right off the bat, you get the sense that Simon is just one of those people who is extraordinarily capable and can do anything. There was a storm our first day with very rough seas but we weren’t concerned even for a second. We trusted his judgement and skill without hesitation right off the bat. He also taught our 12-yr-old daughters how to wakeboard and spent hours and hours pulling them around in the dinghy, and doing it enthusiastically! Paula’s trivia game on the final night was the best. We became friends with Simon and Paula and miss them a ton. We´d love to take another charter in the future but we all agreed, it has to be with them and no one else!

They really made our trip the BEST vacation!

We set sail aboard Sunshine Baby II May 29 - June 5, 2022 with Simon and Paula! Our trip was amazing! We’ve already recommended this vacation destination, sailing and the best crew to our family and friends! We came into the trip with no itinerary plans because we wanted to leave it up to our crew, and they did not disappoint! The food was amazing, as well as the sailing and all of the laughs we shared with Simon and Paula! We enjoyed them being on board with us and getting to know them. They really made our trip the BEST vacation! We would do this trip 100Xs again with them! We miss them already!

Thank you for all of the incredible hospitality, adventures and memories that will last forever!

Thank you for all of the incredible hospitality, adventures and memories that will last forever! We are so grateful for you two!

Simon and Paula were unbelievable

We sailed on Sunshine Baby 2! It was amazing, Simon and Paula were unbelievable. They made my husbands 50th birthday sail better than we could’ve imagined!
The food, drinks and fun we had aboard Sunshine Baby 2 was above and beyond and we can’t wait to go back and sail with them again!

an experience of a lifetime!

Thank you so much for an eventful and exciting trip! We appreciate all of the hard work and time you both put in to make this happen and to give our family an experience of a lifetime!

We couldn´t have dreamed up a better trip or crew!

Thank you for everything! We couldn´t have dreamed up a better trip or crew!

thanks so very much for making this trip of a lifetime!

Simon and Paula, thanks so very much for making this trip of a lifetime!

incredibly impressed by the professionalism and hospitality

We sailed with Simon and Paula on Sunshine Baby II. We were incredibly impressed by the professionalism and hospitality! Both Simon and Paula went above and beyond their roles as Captain and Chef. They did not overlook a single detail to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable trip! Simon is an excellent captain as well as very friendly and personable- we felt like we were being hosted by dear friends! Paula’s meals are easily 5 star worthy both in taste and presentation!! We truly hope to sail with them again in the coming future!

It was perfect in every way!!! Highly highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing week on Sunshine Baby II with Chef Paula and Captain Simon!!!! We couldn’t have imagined a better week. This was our second group trip to the islands, first was chartered out of BVI and this one with Ocean Yacht Club out of USVI. Trips of a lifetime, that is for sure. Paula’s cuisine was exceptional!!!! Every meal was breathtaking! I don’t know how we go on without Paula’s cooking. Simon planned every day and every stop perfectly for our group!! We appreciate the level of detail and thought that went into the itinerary. Simon nailed it!!!!!! So well thought out. Thank you both for a wonderful week in paradise. It was perfect in every way!!! Highly highly recommended!!!

We were never disappointed.

We sailed with Simon and Paula on Sunshine Baby II. It was a fantastic trip and our crew were very accommodating and friendly. Simon was a great captain and made sure we had everything we needed to make our trip a success. Paula cooked some great meals and we couldn´t wait to see what her next creation was going to be. We were never disappointed. We would highly recommend Sunshine Baby and her crew. Well worth the cost.

This was the adventure of a lifetime with the most incredible chef + skipper

We lost track of time all week & were only reminded based on when Paulas amazing meals were served! And we never missed snack time. This was the adventure of a lifetime with the most incredible chef + skipper, Paula + Simon. The blue water, sunshine, amazing company & crew will leave lasting memories!

What made our trip the greatest was by far our amazing crew

Beautiful boat, islands, water and skies. What made our trip the greatest was by far our amazing crew. Simon & Paula are truly the best. It takes a special kind of person to make a group feel like they can relax and take in all the fun and beauty the islands have to offer. Thank you Paula & Simon, you’re officially family now.

you both are incredible people inside and out

When people ask about this trip, my only answer is incredible! Everything was incredible... the boat, the people,
the islands... However, what made it unforgettable was Paula + Simon! Paulas cooking was ridiculous! We never had a
watch on, just navigated our days around the meal bell. Every meal was beautiful and well thought out. Thank you for
making us feel like we were in your home. Simon, it didn’t matter what we asked, he did everything and anything with a smile. He is definitely the most competent sailor on these waters and made everything look easy! He would take the kids out tubing and wake boarding! Thank you both for everything, you both are incredible people inside and out.´
