Jeff and Sandy hail from Boston, MA (go Red Sox!), and have been sailing together for over 11 years. Their journeys have taken them along the East Coast of the U.S. and to many exotic destinations such as the Bahamas, Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Panama, St Lucia, Grenada, and the Grenadines.
Their thirst for adventure, love of the sea, and impeccable hospitality combine to bring their charter guests magical vacations with memories that will last a lifetime!
Captain Jeff’s ocean experience started at the early age of 12 while growing up in a small fishing town on the North Shore of Boston. He was scuba diving by the age of 14 and taking extra courses in Biology and working at the Woods Hole branch in Salem MA while in high school. He went on to double major in Biology & Chemistry at the University of Miami with the direction of working in the marine field. On this path he became involved in the marine equipment industry and boat building. After thirty years in the yacht industry, with over 40,000 miles sailed, he decided to move to the Caribbean and share his love of the sea firsthand through chartering.
He enjoys sharing his knowledge of sailing and diving, and has fun creating his famous “Captain’s Cocktails” for all to enjoy. With his guided tours and underwater photography you will get to experience more of the amazing reefs in BVI than you ever imagined.
Captain Jeff currently holds a commercially endorsed MCA 200 Ton Offshore (Unlimited Passenger) RYA Yacht Master license with all the required SMTC 95 safety training certificates. You will be glad to know that your Captain’s offshore expereince included many solo adventures, so no worries – you can choose to participate as much or as little as you’d like during your voyage, confident in your safety with his seamanship.
Your Hostess/Chef, Sandy has 25 years experience hosting events and catering to discriminating executive-level clients. Through extensive worldwide travel, she has acquired and replicated many unique cuisine creations. She enjoys experimenting with locally sourced produce, and her menu ranges from the heart-healthy to the over-indulgent – your choice! Sandy has also recently been published in the new charter chef cookbook, “Dining on Deck”!
In addition to providing culinary treats, she also offers yoga on board or on the many beaches we’ll explore during the voyage. She also has her acoustic guitar onboard with a repertoire of over 100 beach party songs for impromptu sing-alongs.
Your First Mate, Mango, is always on patrol watching for the next beautiful bird, fish, turtle or dolphin that will surely cross our path!
Jeff and Sandy are active patrons of the Boston’s Children’s Hospital and in 2012 their personal efforts raised in excess of $120,000 for research for pediatric heart valve replacement.

MAGIC INSPIRATION GUESTS COMMENTS
THANKS SO MUCH for a fun-filled, adventurous week! We all learned a lot about a different part of the world…..both underwater and on our many hikes on the islands. We really liked the choice of snorkeling stops (seeing the shark and swimming with turtles were simply incredible!). The kids also LOVED the tubing!!
Sandy, the food was DELICIOUS! Thank you for an absolutely impressive variety of dishes. We still can’t decide on our favorite dessert.
This was a trip we will always remember!

MAY 2012 – JONES PARTY
Magic and Inspiration truly happen here….Thanks for an incredible journey! We came onboard over-worked, over-tired, and over-stressed and are leaving relaxed, refreshed, and regretful for having to leave this paradise you provide. We have laughed much and loved every single moment.
Sandy, your truly gourmet meals have inspired us all. These are the meals one might expect from a 5 star resort – only better!
Jeff, you are a saint! Your patience with a boat full of women and returning to us all the items we lost overboard was amazing. We also found great comfort in your knowledge and expertise behind the helm as our captain.
Thank you both for the MAGIC! This was absolutely one of the most memorable and enjoyable weeks ever! You are both awesome in every way!
Holly, Ann and Terri
