Captain John~ A thirst for adventure and experiences encapsulate who Captain John is. Growing up in Michigan he developed a lifelong love of hockey and working on hot rods and classic cars with his dad. He’s earned a Master Mechanics degree; not to mention learning to surf, sail, and dive while living in Florida. He’s currently working towards his private pilot’s license when he’s not busy sailing the high seas. Being in the water or on it has become his chief form of recreation and relaxation, and he loves to share these passions with his guests. With over 75,000 nautical miles of experience in South America, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean and Florida Captain John is more than comfortable on the water. John even holds thirty-year speed records for both north and south-bound transits along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Working with Heather he enjoys crafting custom experiences for guests whether it’s finding amazing snorkeling, quiet coves, or sailing the days away.
Chef Heather~ A life-long Mainer who was born loving the sea and her state's nautical traditions. She was raised as all Mainers are to value hard work, enjoy dry humor, respect Mother Nature, and love all well-made things. Her grandmother fostered in her a love of simple, delicious meals with an emphasis on from-scratch making and baking with fresh, wholesome ingredients. In 2015 Heather was hired on a historic schooner - from the moment she stepped aboard, she was utterly hooked. Working onboard combined her love of sailing, hospitality, and the challenges of cooking from-scratch meals for thirty people on a woodstove in a tiny galley on a rolling ship. She returned for several summers to teach, but also to learn and improve her sailing, windjamming, and culinary skills. Working with John, Heather has learned how to chart, navigate, and work the systems on any boat. Seeking new waters and fresh opportunities, John and Heather became a delivery team, sailing thousands of nautical miles together. On crewed charters they create customized experiences for their guests: no two charters are the same. In their off time, they travel to new places to surf, eat, dance, and sail together. Their enthusiasm for life, adventure, teaching, and all things ocean make them perfectly suited to create a once in a lifetime experience for their guests.
