Your crew, Paul and Jody, welcome you aboard!

Paul and Jody have been chartering together the past 10 years. Their love for the islands is evident when you first meet them and step aboard. Paul has been living in the Caribbean for the last 16 years, but hails from North Carolina. In addition to being a previous dive instructor and Aquarist at Coral World in St. Thomas, Paul holds his US Coast Guard Masters License. He also has CPR/First Aid and PADI Certifications. His love of sailing, tales of local lore, and genuine Southern hospitality will make your vacation safe, fun and entertaining. Paul loves to share his knowledge of sailing, the Caribbean lifestyle, and the unbelievable marine life below the surface.

Jody, a native Californian, has been living in the islands for the last 12 years. Her passion is delectable and beautiful food. From fresh breads and pastries to decadent desserts, she will present you with an array of goodies to tempt your taste buds. Her culinary style has developed from years of cooking and baking for friends and family. Jody naturally adapted to the charter environment, as is evident by her meals. She has also adapted her techniques to incorporate many dietary and health concerns, so your meals are planned just for you! Whether it´s a casual lunch served in the cockpit overlooking Sandy Cay or formal dinner served while anchored at Norman Island, she will provide a comfortable environment and superb cuisine, especially prepared with your preferences in mind. Her greatest pleasure is your satisfaction.

Jody is also a PADI certified Scuba Instructor and is a CPR and First Aid Instructor. Prior to arriving in St. Thomas, she worked as an Education Volunteer at the Los Angeles Zoo, Long beach Aquarium of the Pacific, and Jenkinson´s Aquarium in New Jersey. She used this knowledge to obtain an Aquarist position at Coral World where she met Paul. Immediately they both knew they had found their perfect match. This background and knowledge of all aspects of coral and sea life makes her unique. She is a people person and will lead you on dives or snorkeling excursions teaching and exploring the wonders of the underwater world.

Paul and Jody believe that great food, great drinks, great sailing, and great company make lasting relationships. As your crew, mates, and tour guides, they will direct you to the best shopping, diving, and snorkeling spots in the islands. They will introduce you to local characters, find the perfect beach bar for a cold concoction, and take you to the best anchorages for your perfect vacation. Whether its toasting a spectacular sunset in a secluded cove, snorkeling with the kids, hiking scenic trails or diving a sunken wreck, they will exceed your expectations.

Twilight Rodeo Guest Reviews

In a word relaxing!

In a word relaxing!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We just returned from a 4 night stay on the Twilight Rodeo and it was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. Jody and Paul greeted us at the Yacht Marina not far from the airport and our vacation began not more than 30 minutes after landing in St. Thomas.
Jody is an awesome cook - and we have a daughter who is vegan - she made every meal a gourmet one for us and our daughter. Nothing was ever too much trouble.

Each day we moved to a new beach - allowing us to see beaches on both St. Thomas and St. John. The kids went scuba diving two days - which Jody arranged all the details for. We slept, ate, snorkeled,- repeat. If you are looking for a completely stress free trip - this is a must. A trip we will always cherish and hope to be able to do again someday!

Paul & Jody,
We signed up for a Captain only charter (before you were actually on this boat!) and we got so much more!!! We are thankful that we got the email that there would be a change in Captain & first mate for this charter!!! We don´t even want to speculate what this trip would have been like without you guys! You both went above and beyond to welcome us abaord and deliver us a spectacular vacation!! We now know we have to come back for an all-inclusive to experience all of Jody´s fabulous cooking!!! We feel we are not only coming away from this vacation with great memories but we have also gained a couple new friends!! I would wish you luck with your new business venture, but with your guys experience & knowledge, etc.. who needs luck!! You are great and your compliments to each other are very touching!!

It was everything we had hoped for and more

Wow what an amazing 2 weeks on charter with Paul & Jody. We celebrated sending our last child off to college by taking this trip. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Jody´s cooking was over the top & every meal was fabulous! Paul was a great Captain and helped get lots of fish with Eric. (Mahi and Tuna) Yum... Thanks for the unforgettable trip!

A truly amazing time

What an absolutley prefect way to spend Thanksgiving week! I had a truly amazing time and enjoyed being able to unplug from our busy lives to enjoy quiet moments! The food was just fantastic & we could not think of any other spots (question 2) that would have made the trip any better than it already has been! Highlighted we catching the Mahi, seeing Sandy Spit/Green Cay & the Bubbling Pool, & spending the two days on Jost. Thanks for a truly fabulous trip, Paul & Jody!!
PS Awesome Eagle Rays in Christmas Cove this AM!
