Captain Jeremy Hansberger

Qualifications:

-USCG 100 ton
-ASA Instructor 101-118
-PADI Staff Instructor/SSI Instructor
-STCW 10
-Food and Beverage Administrator

Jeremy was born in Sandusky, Ohio and grew up on the family farms. After high school, he started working with masonry and at 20 years old started his own company. He then joined to US Army a few years later to attend US Army diver course. Although he´d been on the water and islands of Lake Erie before joining the military, this was the point at which he knew he´d be on the water for a profession. After returning home, Jeremy moved to the Florida Keys to become a recreational dive instructor, spending over a decade boating and diving the keys. He next moved to Maui to continue to broaden his life experiences and professional aptitude becoming the director of dive operations at a large resort. Jeremy has continued to travel the world honing his skill set amassing over 5000 dives and multiple instructor level certifications. In addition to a thorough background in water sports and captaining, he also has 18 years in the restaurant and bar service industry. Jeremy´s years of experience and wide range of skills have led him to become a well rounded charter captain with over 50 charters in the Leeward and Virgin Islands.



Kylie Knibloe

Qualifications:

-STCW 10
-BS Marine Biology
-Kylie plans each of her menus around guest´s likes, dislikes, and dietary requirements, so each week is a little bit different. Kylie loves using fresh ingredients, she grows her own herbs on board, and with the help of Jeremy, and the cooperation of the ocean, she prepares a fresh catch meal for every charter. Common fresh catch´s include lobster, conch, and lion fish!


Kylie was born and raised in Buffalo, New York (GO BILLS!!!!!) Growing up Kylie always knew she wanted to be a Marine Biologist. In an effort to escape the chilly Buffalo winters and get closer to the ocean, she moved to Tampa, Florida.
Kylie enrolled in the University of South Florida and graduated in 2020 with her bachelor´s degree in Marine Biology. Being that this was her first time ever living on her own, Kylie quickly realized she could not survive off scrambled eggs and box macaroni and cheese for long. This is when Kylie began to teach herself how to cook. It took some time, but Kylie is now a skilled, self-taught chef with a plethora of recipes she loves to share with family, friends, and charter guests!
While in school, Kylie worked as a bartender at some of the local restaurants where she had the opportunity to train with ´Magic´ Mike Warner, an iconic figure in the bartending community. During this time, she was nominated for the title of Best Bartender of the Bay by Creative Loafing. Now in the Virgin Islands, Kylie has found the perfect position that allows her to express her creativity through food and drinks all while being in the environment she loves most!

Tortuga Guest Reviews

June 2022 USVI Charter

Bubba and Heather were wonderful hosts!
We so enjoyed their company. I´m not sure it´s even possible for Heather to cook a bad meal! Their trip was truly a unique experience and one I will think fondly of for the rest of my life!

This trip was so fun!
The food was awesome and they are so accommodating to everyone´s needs. We went snorkeling almost every day and swam with turtles. Heather and Bubba are such a sweet couple and have 100% become my besties.

You guys made our family escape a super success! We so needed to get away as a family and Tortuga made it possible, taking us on with almost no notice. You met and exceeded our expectations! Food was awesome and trip/route planning was geared to our interests. We wish you both the very best in the future and great success where life takes you!

February 2022 USVI Charter

Dear Tim & Siboney,

Thank you both so very much for making our vacation on board Tortuga so special and full of fond memories! We haven´t stopped thinking about our time with you and the gorgeous USVI since we got home, and we continue to look at our pictures and reminisce.

Tim, your experience and expertise as a captain and sincere desire to make sure we experienced as much as possible in a short week (including so many beautiful beaches) made us feel safe and special. You clearly paid attention to our likes and dislikes, and to every detail on the boat. You carefully studied weather conditions and forecasts to avoid too much wind and rough waters when choosing an itinerary, and you constantly checked with us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves, all of which made for a perfect charter. And when you were able to relax, we loved getting to know you better. Some of our fondest memories are of our after-dinner chats among all six of us.

Siboney, you are amazing. Not only was every single meal that we had beyond delicious, your energy, creativity and obvious love of cooking was over the top. And all from a small galley! It was clear to us how much you enjoy making your guests feel comfortable and special. Not only did you feed us like kings and queens, but you were a fantastic first mate/mooring ball expert. You and Tim make a great team!

When the charter began, we were excited about the week ahead but didn´t know what to expect. However, at the end we left feeling like close friends and with a new and wonderful perspective on sailing in the Caribbean. It far exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to do it again with you! Please feel free to share our message with anyone as we can’t recommend a charter with y’all more.

Your grateful friends,
Carolyn and Bruce

The perfect hosts, perfect weather. And he food!! oh my goodness Siboney has found her calling. The guys loved their scuba trips and we all loved the snorkeling with Captain Tim.
