Crew Profiles:
Your skipper, Captain Kyle, has been in the salt his entire life. Growing up a New Englander, Kyle began working in the waters off the coast of New Hampshire in lobster boats, eventually finding his way into sailing tall ships. After attending Emerson College and graduating with a B.F.A., he soon realized it’s hard to make money as an artist. He then returned to the water and has been sailing professionally ever since. Captain Kyle knows these waters like the back of his hand having spent seven years chartering the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Now back after a two year hiatus working as a licensed officer aboard National Geographic expedition ships from Alaska to Baja California Sur, he longed to return to his roots sailing on a more intimate and personal scale. He strives to deliver a safe trip while ensuring his guests have the most fun and memorable time of their lives.

Your First Mate/Chef, Tim, has achieved his life’s aspiration. After working nearly a decade in landlocked, stressful kitchens, he was ready for a change. Tim began his career working under one of the United States’ top chefs, Carl McConnell. During this time, Tim honed his skills by working endless hours preparing James Beard-nominated dishes. After attending culinary school and furthering his education, Tim decided to leave the nest and see the world. He left the Midwest and headed for the seas, working for the prestigious eco-tourism company National Geographic Lindblad Expeditions. He takes pleasure in bringing guests together with his family-style dining approach or by wowing them with his expertly plated prix-fixe dishes. As an avid scuba diver, adventurer, and naturalist, Tim would love for you to join him snorkeling in the Caribbean reefs, then allowing him to prepare your favorite dishes as you enjoy cocktails staring out into the serene blue waters.

These two best buds met working on the National Geographic ships. While sailing the west coasts of North and Central America, they dreamed up a plan to explore the Caribbean while providing guests with expert-level hospitality. Their combined passions for water, excellent service, and having a good time have led them to partnering up and sharing these passions with their guests. Let them show you the captivating Caribbean waters and give you the experience of a lifetime.

Come aboard as their guest. Leave as their friend.
