Born to be a sailor, Tristan could say he had his sea legs before he even knew he had legs. His passion for freedom and love for the ocean and nature has always been a quintessential part of his personality.

Growing up in South Africa, Tristan became an avid sailboat racer, placing at a national level. This active lifestyle lead him to further explore the travel opportunities that can be provided stepping on board a charter vessel. His sailing career has brought him from Cape Agulhas, the Mediterranean, across the Atlantic, and now to the Caribbean.

Tristan enjoys spending as much time on the water as he does in the water, snorkeling and diving, and even over the water, playing with the videos he captures with his drone. Crossfit and hiking are other ways he loves to stay physically active and he always is up for a mental challenge in a game of chess.


A natural caretaker, Ceilidh captures a calming essence with her patient personality balanced with an enthusiasm for life and activity. Beyond her passions for the sea and sailing, she glows with excitement when sharing her appreciation for wine, food, coffee, art, and photography.

Growing up with Swiss and South African citizenship, it’s no wonder how Ceilidh became fascinated with the beautiful world and culture she finds in these passions. From providing exquisite wine tasting on a farm in South Africa, to becoming a Qualified Barista and Coffee Sensory Experience Expert in Honduras, she will surely take your taste-buds on their own adventure!

Ceilidh´s caring demeanor extends to the younger ones as well. Previously a live-in Au Pair, she is intimately familiar with the activity levels of children and always has playful way to keep them entertained, engaged, and well nourished.

Tristan and Ceilidh:

Tristan and Ceilidh met as most sailors do, at the local pub. The difference however, was that it was not love at first sight, but rather a return to an ancient friendship. A couple months into dating they decided to explore their shared passion for the ocean. They set out sailing across the world, starting in the frosty waters of Cape Town to beautiful Croatia. Pulled to a warmer climate in the Caribbean, Tristan and Ceilidh set off to sail in the waters of the British Virgin Islands, St Marteen, Belize and Honduras throughout 4 months. Landing in the Bahamas, they are ecstatic to bring their ambition for exploring and appreciating the natural world to the eyes and hearts of their guests.


Dominic fell in love with the sea and all it has to offer through diving. He has worked as an entertainer in Greece, mastering interpersonal skills, and spent a year multitasking as a waiter and bartender in South Africa. All of this culminating into a mix of good conversation and great drinks. Beyond the professional realm, He is passionate about diving, sea life, diverse cuisine, travel and sports.
