Crew

Captain and Crew of Ocean Jedi, a 58 ft Cata Ballotta Caribbean Yacht Charter

Crew Profile

Frank and Denise hail from Reno, Nevada. (We know – How do you become a sailor in the middle of the desert?) They have been a couple for 23 years and married since April, 1998. Frank and Denise brought Ocean Jedi from the Pacific Coast of Peru through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean Sea where they have spent the past two years cruising the Caribbean and discovering all her beauty and bounty.

Although Frank is a true “desert rat” having been born and raised in Reno, Nevada his heart has always been with the sea.

Sometimes opportunity comes from the strangest situations. In 1991 Frank suffered a knee injury and for therapy took up swimming laps in the local pool. During one of his swims he noticed a scuba class and decided to give it a try. Frank was a natural, and quickly moved up the ranks to become an instructor for PADI and NAUI. His childhood dreams were always of the old sailors and he would visualize himself on their high seas’ adventures. Frank’s natural instincts and intuition for sailing are apparent in his smooth voyages. Frank loves sailing of any sort, whether it be racing or a relaxing smooth sail with friends and guests. He has sailed San Francisco Bay extensively, and he has served as Master and/or crew on several vessels in Kona, Hawai’i. Frank enjoys sharing his knowledge of sailing, the oceans and all her critters with his clients. If you are up for it, he would love to have you take a turn at the wheel under his patient guidance. Sharing the adventure is what Frank is all about.

Denise is a true “island girl” having been born on an island in the Azores. Before she could walk she was squeezing the sand in her toes and playing in the waves. Around the age of six she watched her first Jacques Cousteau documentary and declared that when she grew up she would be a scuba diver. In 1992 she accomplished that goal and fell in love with the underwater world. Denise continued her diving education and is now an instructor certified by Padi and NAUI.

She advocates for the ocean environment and has volunteered with the Manta Pacific Research Foundation, Kona’s Earth and Oceans day, and has participated in several hundred clean up dives. She spent a year in Kona, Hawai’i taking clients to swim with wild dolphins. As evidenced by her photographs she became “friends” with the dolphins and delighted in playing the “leaf game” with the spinner dolphins in Kealekakua Bay. Ocean Jedi provides Denise with the opportunity to live her dream while sharing her adventures with others.

OCEAN JEDI GUESTS COMMENTS
BVI – de la Vega family – tandem charter
What an amazing 7 days we experienced with Denise and Frank on Ocean Jedi. This vacation allowed us to have great family time, relaxing time, and plenty of activity. I loved the paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling (Denise is an expert) swimming in the most beautiful waters ever, and picnics on white sandy beaches where running seemed effortless. Denise’s cuisine was excellent…the food was varied, made to preference and looked like a masterpiece. Frank was alwatys happy to get us “hooked up” with whatever activitu we wanted to do (even driving the boat). They make a great team. Ocean Jedi is a beautiful vesselw tih luxurious ammentities and a simple, strong design. Thanks Denise & Frank. Hugs, Terri

Grenada charter
Had a wonderful vacation. Just loved Grenada, the hiking and the diving. Ocean Jedi is a great charter boat, so comfortable. You are both so hospitable and friendly. We’ll be back for sure. Thank you for everything. JP and family

Diving photos
A wonderful charter and excellent diving!

BVI – Return client
Hi Guys, Had a great time with you in the BVI. I thought last year in Grenada was great, but the BVI was fanstastic. I loved the diving and paddle boarding – sailing wasn’t bad either. Hey Denise – you gotta quit cooking when I come back. I had to loosen my belt a notch once again. See you next year. Happy trails, PZ

de la Vega – 2
I am still amazed by the space of the boat and the incredible speed. It was a great week for me and my kids and the food was fantastic. I probably gained a few pounds, but that is just part of vacationing. Keep up the good work. Hope to return soon.

Tyner – Wagener – Diving the BVI
Denise & Frank were such fantastic dive guides and such a blast to spend time with. My favorite dive was definitely the Rhone wreck. Thank you for an amazing first diving experience in the BVI – Jamie Wagener

Denise & Frank – WOW! World class experience. We had so much fun. We will remember this forever. Hope to keep in touch. – Ryan Tyner

Denise & Frank – I really enjoyed my short time with you. You both are the “total experience.” You made me feel great while diving and on the boat. Thank you. – Corey Tyner

Weir Family Charter – BVI – 12/27-1/3
We loved it. Frank and Denise are the best. A family with three teenagers and two adults and there was something for everyone. Four of us learned to scuba dive and my husband learned a bit about sailing. Kimberly loved the beaches. The food was amazing. WE WILL BE BACK! – Chris Hill
A great holiday is one where you lose track of what day it is. The only details that mattered were the 8 knots, 80 foot depths and 80 proof. Thanks for all the laughs! – Mike, Chris, Trevor, Michelle and Kim

Camilo Family Charter 1/5-1/5 2012
One of the best vacations I’ve ever been on! The food was amazing as were the accommodations. The diving and snorkeling were phenomenal and the itinerary and places we stopped were great. I never felt rushed or like I didn’t have enough time. AWESOME TRIP! – Thanks a million Denise and Frank – – – Shane Camilo

I had an absolutely amazing trip. Denise & Frank are both fabulous hosts who really love what they do. They give a fun sailing excursion filled with exciting activities in a a lovely and “at home” setting. I can’t wait for the next vacation on Ocean Jedi… “May the wind be with you” Denise and Frank. – – – Sinead Camilo

What an amazing vacation. Denise & Frank are the ultimate hosts. Everything was awesome including the food, diving, snorkeling and even the weather. Their knowledge of the islands (both USVI and BVI) is exceptional. They knew just the right spots to take us based on our goals for the trip. I can’t wait to come back. – – – Vicki Camilo

Rice Family Charter (Capt. Only) 1/15 – 1/22, 2012

Everhart/Nelson/Waldorf Charter 1/24-1/31, 2012
We ventured from the land of ice & snow to escape reality for a week. This was truly a “trip of a lifetime for all of us. Frank & Denise, our new friends, were exstremely hospitable & knowledgeable of the sea, boat, diving, snorkeling, sailing, fresh foods, delicious meals, fun expressions (Frank) and rum concoctions. We could not have asked for a better experience. We hope that if your travels bring you to Colorado, you will let us pamper you for awhile. = ) Love, Pinky, Sunshine, Pogo & Blow

Clukey/Kay/Bishop April 7-15, 2012
The boat, the climate & best of all Frank and Denise! Thank you for great cruising & great lunches, etc. You are two awesomely capable captain, first mate and chef. I always felt safe & royally treated. Such fun places you found for us to swim, paddle & socialize. You made it through the epizootic we shared with you. Hope to see you in Maine someday—the cruising is beautiful, the lobsters delicious and sometimes it is warm. Fran & Bob

Denise & Frank make an ideal pair!…whether helming or cooking or watching out for our safety. The side trips made our cameras ZOOM! The underwater fish were as colorful as any we’ve seen. After Denise’s food we are not lean. A perfect way to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Jim and Marietta

Matchett-Jones 2012
Could not have been a nicer couple on a fabulous boat. Everything met and exceeded our expections? Meals, cleanliness, itinerary—everything “top draw.” We will be back. Cathy & Kelly
Our week was great! Denise & Frank you could not have been more hospitable and welcoming! We thoroughly enjoyed the sights, the experience, the food and the company. We felt very much at home and would love to join you again and would love to have you join us on our boat in Georgian Bay! Randy & Joan

Zaludova Family Charter March 16-23, 2012
Denise & Frank… if only words could describe the time we had with you! Wonderful! …may say the time of our lives, proof of natural chemistry, as our parents don’t speak/understand English. Amazing people, amazing food, amazing mood. Every single second was “lived” to the very bottom of our hearts. Thank You, Monika, Zdenka, Ivanka, Karel
Blackburn/Collier/Clavenna March 2012

“We felt at home with Denise nad Frank right away. They hosted us with their warm welcome and caring attitude. The snorkeling was terrific and we will relish our undersea memories for a long long time.” The Tomlinson’s

May 2012
“WOW! Our family trip was the best it could be. Capt. Frank and Admiral Denise, you are amazing hosts. Our dive trips, snorkeling, shore excursions, food, island knowledge, dive knowledge, fun rum drink concoctions, sailing and people skills, compassion, kindness and all around people skills are stellar. Once we learned “the ropes” and started to relax our vacation was the best. We’ve done the Virgin Islands many times and this was by FAR the BEST! BFF.

“Thanks so much for the diving lessons, hospitality and the conversations. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Can’t wait to see you two again!” Amanda

JUNE 2012
“Frank & Denise you both truly get the meaning of family. You quickly meshed into our lives as if you were a part of our family, and in turn made our trip incredible! The snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, tubing, sailing and exploring were fabulous. The patience you both had with our girls and looking out for their welfare helped us to fully relax and escape. Thank you for making Jon’s 50th birthday trip everything that we expected and more! Please keep in touch. We hope to see you soon. Love Michele, Jon, Josie & Kylie.”
