Meet the crew: Captain Aritz and Chef Lauren

Captain Aritz: Aritz lives for sailing and loves to share his passion for the sea with his guests. Born and raised in Spain, he spent his earlier years sailing and teaching kitesurfing around the world. After working as a kitesurfing instructor in Morocco, Egypt, the Netherlands, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, he realized that the best destinations are accessible only by boat and shifted his focus to becoming a Captain. Aritz now has over 50,000 miles under his belt. With 10 Atlantic crossings, 6 as Captain, you could say he loves to sail. He has spent three charter seasons in Greece and three in The Bahamas. He loves to share adventures of sailing and kiting with people.

Chef Lauren: Lauren was born and raised in Canada- the land of the great outdoors. She grew up loving the water- lifeguarding, wakeboarding, boating, and living on the lake. Lauren has over 8 years in hospitality working in restaurants and has spent the past three years working as a hostess, crew hand, and chef on yachts in both the Bahamas and Greece. Lauren is an avid kitesurfer, surfer, and sailor and completed her first Atlantic crossing. She’ll prepare fresh bread for breakfast, picnics on the beach, tapas at happy hour, and 3-course dinners to finish your perfect day on the water! Lauren makes sure the guests have protein-packed shakes, vibrant salads, and lemon fresh fish to fuel your adventures!

Captain Aritz and Chef Lauren look forward to welcoming you onboard and creating unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!

*A third crew member will be onboard for dive-orientated charters or upon request

Wind Chaser I Guest Reviews

Super Amazing Kite Boarding, Diving and Sailing Experience

The activity line up is over the top. Windy days you kite and the rest of the time you get to dive, snorkel, e foil and relax. I have done my fair share of traveling and this trip checks all the boxes and creates a few new ones! We have been 2 times for 2 weeks and plan on going back annually!

Epic Trip!!

Amazing amazing trip!!! Crew was awesome with communication and daily briefing!! Food was fresh and cooked with love! On daily basis we was choosing the best fit activities for that day (and there was alot to choose from).
Kiteboarding in exumas was mesmerized!! Soooooo beautiful!!! Can´t wait to do it again!! Thank you to Captain and all the crew!! You guys really made that trip EPIC!! And you made my bday extra special this year!! Thank you!!

Amazing trip!

Best vacation ever! Boat, meals and crew were exceptional! We went last week and had perfect weather. Highly recommend!

One of the best trips I’ve had :)

I had such an amazing and memorable trip. There were a range of activities to do - with something for everyone, yummy food, unbelievable destinations and such a lovely crew.

A wonderful experience on a great boat with a lovely crew

We had an amazing experience. Beautiful boat - extremely comfortable, great food and a wonderful crew that couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a wonderful experience.

A truly magical experience!

One of the most amazing experiences I´ve ever had, the locations, the boat, the incredible team, the fantastic activities and out of this world food make it something I will never forget. If you can go on a charter with these guys, you won´t regret it!

Everyone is super amazing!

´Aritz is an amazing captain and always makes us feel safe. He has really great knowledge of the Bahamas and sailing in general. Lauren is incredible and makes sure everyone is totally comfortable and fed and had enough time on the water! Javier is the man he is always keeping the gear organized helping people learn more about kiteboarding and always there with the dingy for rescues if the wind dies, and he is an incredible photographer and kiteboarding instructor. Ale is an incredible person on the crew with is amazing kite coaching and video editing skills. These guys really know how to capture the moment! Anastasia and Lauren are amazing chefs and the food was delicious everyday from breakfast to snacks lunch and dinner! They are really an outstanding crew. I know it cannot be easy to keep an entire group of active kiteboarders fed for 10 days!´

´All fantastic!´

´Really friendly. Amazing food. Crew couldn´t do enough for us, particularly Lauren in respect of food/meals. Very flexible -always focused on ensuring we were having a great time´.

I will do this again!

´The boat and experience was absolutely stunning. Actually this was the best Holidya I have had in years and I´m very thankful to have had a chance to be a part of this amazing trip´
