Capt. Stephen Powell
Captain Stephen Powell grew up sailing in Newport Beach, California. ´My brother and I would spend the summer sailing in Newport Harbor, like a modern version of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. My entire family were lifeguards, sailors, scuba divers, pilots, and general Bon Vivants´, he said.

After graduating from the University of Southern California, Stephen traveled down to South Africa, to race and deliver sailboats, where he earned his Yachtmaster Ocean certification. Captain Stephen has sailed in all of the great oceans of the world and has logged in excess of 50,000 miles offshore, including two trans-Atlantic crossings and two Indian Ocean passages.

He holds a USCG 200 ton Master license and is also a PADI Divemaster and a private pilot. In 2017 he purchased his very own 41´ sloop in Palma de Mallorca, which he sailed across the Atlantic, through the Caribbean, and up the east coast of the USA. As a result of his extensive travels, Captain Stephen speaks fluent Spanish and can generally get by in a couple other languages as well. He will keep you entertained with tales of the high seas and even teach you a few sailing knots if you so choose.

Chef Celia “CC” Corbin

Chef and First Mate Celia, who goes by the nickname “CC”, was born and raised most of her life near the ocean in Southern California. It wasn’t until 2015 that CC gave up her corporate career as a Meeting & Event Planner and started traveling the world spending three of those months sailing across the South Pacific on a Lagoon 450. Traveling brought CC to earning her PADI Dive Instructor certification which then led her into the superyacht and luxury liveaboard industry where she worked in a variety of roles - one of them more recently being a chef cooking for 25 guests and crew combined in the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos.

After nearly 7 years working in the yachting industry, she’s now able to combine her passion for the ocean and focus on her creativity skills preparing modern fare cuisine. When CC is not on charter, you’ll likely find her traversing through mountains and enjoying the culinary delights of the country she’s in or continuing her education working toward her sommelier certification and yoga teacher training.

We’re pleased to have Celia onboard with her shared passion for the ocean and enthusiasm for food.

Stephen & Celia have crewed that same vessel, Esperanza II, together for two seasons and are very much looking forward to their third season in 2023-24 as professional crew on Valentine, delivering excellent service and guest experiences to discrete clientele. They both share their shared passion for the ocean with their guests, Celia with her Pan Pacific cuisine and Stephen by identifying sea life and their habitat on snorkeling excursions. Both are excellent divers, and have experienced some of the world’s best dive sites from Komodo, Indonesia, to the Seychelles, French Polynesia, and the Caribbean.

Stephen and Celia tailor each charter to the unique desires of each family. Some may choose an active charter that includes hiking, diving, wake boarding, and snorkeling, while others may be happy with a cold Caribbean cocktail and a good book. During diving expeditions Stephen & Celia find wild life to enhance the guests experience, and snap picture with a Go Pro so the clients have photographs to go along with their memories. On many occasions, they have organized boat concerts with local three piece bands, or steel pan players, that play on the aft deck while the guests float in the warm sea enjoying the music and a cold beer. The concerts have been a huge hit with guests for birthday’s, and other special occasions. Stephen particularly enjoys after dinner games with families, especially teens and children that need a good alternative form of entertainment to distract them from their Iphones.

While sailing from place to place Stephen will entertain guests with tales of ship wrecks, or the golden age of piracy, or history about the local islands. Celia loves to share her passion for food with clients, especially foodies and those who love the nuances in her amazing dishes. Previous guests frequently comment on how much value the crew adds to the charter experience, and their client reviews are universally outstanding.

Stewardess Caitlin Mahoney

Caitlin was born on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts and moved to Breckenridge, CO when she was 4 years old. Growing up in the mountains of Colorado was a wonderful upbringing that allowed her to explore skiing, snowboarding and a 15 year long figure skating career. Her parents are from Florida, so despite being raised in a landlocked state, every family vacation was spent in the sand, sun & salt water.

Caitlin was raised with the values of hosting social gatherings and creating memorable events to last lifetime, many times shared over a great meal. Her family owned a small fine dining restaurant in a beautiful ski town which held the space for celebrations including proposals, anniversaries, birthdays, and special holidays. Caitlin’s earliest memories include setting the restaurant up for dinner service, taking reservations, decorating for the holidays and on the busiest nights of the year working as a hostess. She has always loved the art of entertainment shared over a delicious meal and fabulous cocktails.

After 6 years of working as a concert marketer in the music industry, Caitlin made a career change and began working for a dive shop out of Boulder, CO. This new position opened her eyes to exploring the 72% of our planet which remains beneath the surface. Upon getting scuba certified she then went on to live in Cozumel, Mexico for a year followed by obtaining her divemaster and PADI Instructor certifications in Utila, Honduras. She met Stephen and CC last season in the Virgin Islands while she was working aboard another vessel as a chef. Caitlin looks forward to sharing her love for the ocean with you both above and beneath the surface and welcoming you aboard Valentine.

March 2024

Incredible food; every meal was more than 5 star. The most amazing spot I´ve ever been kitesurfing was Anegada. It was a dream kitesurfing with pink flamingos in turquoise water. The dive spot at Salt Island - the Wreck of the Rhone was really cool! Thanks for taking us to see all those beautiful places! We´ll never forget this week.
Very grateful,
Luisa, Alicia, Erich

February 2024

Words can´t express what a special week we all had on Valentine! Each stop was wonderful. Stephen, Cece & Rara planned a perfect mix of activities. Even with a small hiccup with the water on yacht, the fun kept going when Cece & Rara found us some unexpected fun at Nigel´s beach bar. But really the absolute highlight of the trip getting to experience the incredible meals prepared by Cece!!! She has such a culinary gift! We have loved this week and can´t wait to return!

Love, The Shows, Corings, Hebners & Codeys

February 2024

Wow! What a week! Stephen, CC, and Kate you made our trip unforgettable. The level of service you all provided was amazing. Every meal was five-star. Every stop that we visited was perfect. We loved all your stories and everything you taught us about the beautiful Caribbean. We are thankful to have gotten to know you and spend the week with you. We will be back.

All our best,

Olmsteds, Brooks, Quicks, & Berchilds

November 2023

This was my first vacation that I truly was able to 100% relax and not have to make any decisions. I´m a type A personality who plans every minute to the detail, but once you take your shoes off and step aboard everything is taken care of for you. The Valentine is comparable to many 5 star hotels that I have stayed at with all the luxuries. The boat is so roomy and beautiful and the service and food is outstanding. The crew is so knowledgeable about where to go each night and the ease of discovering each island on your own time. This is one of those trips/boats you can´t explain to someone. They just have to experience it for themselves.

Caitlin

Caitlin,

Where to begin? You two lovely humans helped to create some amazing core memories for our family. We will be forever grateful for the seamless way in which we slipped into the world of 3 Sisters. Johnny, Teagan, Claire, and I will cherish the magical experience of sailing, exploring, snorkeling, laughing, eating, and drinking and then laughing some more. Kudos to the expert guidance, exceptional meals, fun, and friendship. Gordon & Caitlin, you are both truly talented in every way!

We had much to celebrate and can´t imagine a better way to toast our new chapters - to open our stories & reconnect again some day. The McKitticks

Love & hugs,
Johnny, Sara, Teagan & Claire

An experience that far exceeded anything we could have possibly imagined or hoped for!

Thank you so much Captain Stephen for making our first overnight trip aboard a catamaran unforgettable! And to Chef CiCi for a group who are foodies- you left us very impressed with your culinary skills!
The Esperanza is a beautiful yacht and we were honored to have spent 3 wonderful days at sea. We could not have asked for a kinder crew. You both are so kind, thoughtful and caring.
Thank you for the incredible, wonderful memories- we will never forget this trip of a life time!

Fantastic!

What a fantastic four days in the U.S.V.I ! A huge thank you to Stephen and C.C. for taking such good care of us. Stephen knew all the good spots to see rays, turtles, fish and an unexpected live band performance on the back of a boat- so fun!
My favorite was the beautiful beaches! C.C. prepared the most amazing food- best chef ever!
We survived four days with two adults and five teenagers and are already planning out next trip with Stephen and C.C.! Sad to leave this beautiful place.

WOW!

What a great week. Food and fun was over the top!
Absolutely awesome!
on our week long adventure celebrating the life of our dear friend, we felt every ripple of his spirit egging us on to adventure and mischief! He was with us in rainbows, spotted eagle rays, sea turtles and nearly every fish on the card. Not to mention, dice games and shots, wrestling not the lily pad and rum punches in hand on the beach reminiscing on the good times.
BLOWN AWAY by every single meal chef CiCi and all of Captain Stephen´s stories.
Heaven on earth.
See you guys next year!

Awesome trip in every way

Thank you for the most amazing trip EVER! loved every second and can´t wait to do it again. So many amazing sails, meals, snorkel trips, storytelling, Disaranno pouring and all the desserts!
Thank you Stephen and CC for all you did aboard Esperanza to make it the most memorable week! It was just perfection! Food and EVERYTHING was just so delicious and amazing!

A bucket list trip!

From the moment we we stepped on the boat we knew it would be an amazing trip. We enjoyed Stephen´s knowledge of the islands and hit many of the ´hot spots´. Cece´s food was amazing! She quickly picked up on our picky teenagers preferences and catered to that. There were many unplanned events on our trip but you guys adjusted with grace. Thank you for a relaxing slowdown which our family needed very much!

Experience of a lifetime!

Going on a charter for the first time is a lot like going to you first day if school. Excitement is mixed with anxiety. Stephen and CC could not have been more warm and welcoming. Each of them did an exceptional job at putting us at ease, anticipating our every need and being so patient with our deci- sions that sometimes changed like the winds, as our journey through the USVI and BVI comes close, we will take home experience of a lifetime as well as two new close family friends Stephen, thank you for being our guide and great orator.
CC, you have set a new standard by which all other culinary experiences will be judged. We are so grateful for you both, thank you, thank you, thank you.

The Food - OMG!!!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience! Every day was an adventure. The kids absolutely loved snorkeling and diving. You took us to amazing spots. Our bad weather day was a success due to your quick thinking.
The food - OMG ! So much and all so GOOD! The surf and turf was a fan favorite and so were the yummy lunch pastas and wraps. Every meal was creative and cooked perfectly! I´ve never sen my kids each so much :)
We truly appreciate your kindness and hospitality and wish you both the very best in the future!

This Trip Was Unforgettable!

Many memories were made on Esperanza II that will last a lifetime. Thank you to Chef CC with her food that exceeded our expectations in every way! Thank you Captain Stephen for not only your knowledge of the sea but your knowledge and stories of any given topic we discussed.
A few of our favorites were diving the scuttled Willy T, walking and swimming The Baths, the Rum bar, scooters and dancing at Potters to name a few.
The best part not only spending time with old friends and making new ones but ere our fund quotes of the trip.....
Overall this trip was unforgettable.
We had an amazing crew and know that we are secretly the best guests of the season :) Thank you for the memories to last a lifetime!
