We learned the local way of life, and the amazing destinations that the British/U.S. Virgin Islands have to offer, and would love to share our expertise with you during your travels. We are truly passionate about our little chain of islands, and want to make sure that by the end of your day with them, you’ll have memories to last a life time.

Crew

Joe has an interesting story on how he got into the Charter Business. He graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2007 with a degree in business marketing, and began working in the corporate world as a recruiter. He worked in a cubicle for 3 years. There wasn’t a window in site, the fluorescent lights seemed to burn a hole in his soul, and he was being told he couldn’t wear certain things (even though he looked really good!)… As opposed to feeling good about being able to support himself on a decent salary he decided to quit his job right after the bubble burst shocking his boss and friends. He basically told his family and friends that this way of life sucks, and he was going to search for new opportunities in the Virgin Islands. Upon arriving he ended up getting a job as a crew member for a 65’ sailing catamaran that took cruise ship guests out sailing and snorkeling. His passion for life was instantly re-ignited, and he knew he had made a great decision making the move to the Virgin Islands. He worked for a year on the catamaran, met a super hot and cool chick named Amanda, and the two of them got hitched and started their own charter company! Joe has his captains license, is CPR certified, and has a true passion for boating in the Virgin Islands. Everyday he spends with his guests is enjoyed just as much by him, as his guests, and he is grateful for being able to make a living doing something he enjoys so much. He says this job should almost be illegal b/c it’s so rewarding and fun! Joe captains charters himself and also manages other captains for the business. He requires captains to have extensive boating knowledge/licenses for safety, and won’t hire anyone unless they’re passionate about the job. He and Amanda recently bought an old school bus which they plan on converting to an eco-friendly off grid tiny home that will be parked somewhere to be determined on the island of St. Thomas.

I was lucky enough to have an uncle who lived in St. Thomas when I was growing up, so I would spend her summers here in the Virgin Islands hanging out at beaches, camping, serving drinks (at a bar at age 10 no joke), and taking in all the natural beauty that these islands have to offer. I always knew that after college I would come back to the islands to live at least for a year, and then I would move back and start a big girl job.

This probably would have happened if I hadn’t run into an interesting guy one day at a local St. John watering hole known as Woody’s. It was here that I met Joe, and ended up riding the ferry back to St. Thomas with him and ending the night on a friendly handshake (Joe played it cool). We fell in love pretty quickly, got a dog, got hitched and started two business’s with one of them being this charter company.

Overall, I love my little chain of islands that I now call home, and cant wait to talk to you about your groups interests and how I can make your day the best day of your vacation.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Benner, VI.

Looking for a yacht charter in the USVI? Dream sailing destinations don’t come much dreamier than the US Virgin Islands. A Caribbean hang out with an American vibe, sailing in the US Virgin Islands, or USVI, is even easier with a Sailo yacht charter.

The US Virgin Islands archipelago consists of three main islands, St John, St Croix and St Thomas.
