Blue Pepper has 3 Crew members,Captain Justin Montgomery Summers (USA), Chef Karson Winslow (USA) and the Stewardess Liz
– Captain Justin –
Justin has worked hard to build a life that he doesn’t need a vacation from. He grew up sailing on lakes in Oklahoma but quickly took his love for the wind to the sea. He has called Hawaii home for 15 years, sharing his passion for the ocean’s inhabitants with people from all over the world. Justin strongly believes that you protect what you love and the best way for people to take care of the ocean is to experience it firsthand. In between charters Justin can be found on a variety of vessels from the helm of Sea Shepherd’s conservation fleet to the tiller of a wooden tall ship. Justin’s love of sailing started with dinghies as a boy and he loves to volunteer as a youth sailing instructor whenever he can. Justin is excited to take you on the adventure of a lifetime.
– Chef Karson –
Karson has enjoyed working in the galley for over ten years. She has cooked on a number of vessels including; tall ships, blue water cruising yachts, super yachts, race boats, science research vessels and charter catamarans. She is passionate about cooking and loves to make delicious and creative meals.
Karson has spent the last four years living on the Big Island of the Hawaiian Islands. Having traveled most of her adult life, she has picked up flavors and tastes of the globe. She enjoys most to make food with fresh and healthy ingredients. Her food takes inspiration from coastal towns of the Mediterranean Sea, zesty and fresh tastes of Thailand and Vietnam and fun fresh heat from Mexico and the Pan Latin region. She is a huge seafood fan and loves the access to fruit de mer the Caribbean offers.
Karson is well versed in dietary restrictions such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, paleo, keto, low carb, and can provide an array of substitutions to suit your needs. She strives to make your experience onboard full of fun, exquisite food and memorable times.
– Stewardess Liz –
Elizabeth is a creative and hard-working person who has always been great with people. We could describe her as someone who actively wants to help people enjoy their experiences wherever they may be. Onboard her job is to maintain a perfectly clean boat, be sure that the glasses are always full, and help Karson excel in the kitchen.
After 7 years of deep dedication for her family, her son Cade and her husband Cole agreed that mom deserved an opportunity to grow and gain new skills on board Blue Pepper doing this wonderful work making beautiful memories in people’s lives! Lizzy’s husband will take care of their house and their son, and Lizzy will go to work hard on Blue Pepper making sure that even the smallest details will be perfect during your stay. She worked as a housekeeper, sales representative, and a Primrose early education teacher. All this work experience came to complete the Blue Pepper team. Lizzy is an obsessive and organized person with professional and personal experience with kids and infinite patience with people. Nothing left to say but that the vibrant energy and lovely way that she does everything will make you feel special and relaxed, as a dream vacation should be!

BLUE PEPPER GUESTS COMMENTS
I wanted to reach out to congratulate you on the amazing crew you have, with Taylor and Denise, on your catamaran Blue Pepper. My family and I spent last week aboard and had the most amazing experience. I have done three other prior charters and none equates to last week. The catamaran is beautiful and has an excellent distribution of space to accommodate all 10 guests comfortably. On top of that, Taylor and Denise are definitely the best crew. They spent every second of the week making sure everything was perfect and they did so with great smiles at all times. Denise cooking is just amazing and she was so versatile in accommodating preferences. I would chose her cooking over any restaurant. Taylor was great about facilitating all activities onboard and on the islands and planned a perfect route for our trip. I don’t think they ever took a break from making sure the catamaran was just impeccable and everything running smoothly. The two of them together make a great team and made everyone of us feel so pampered as they took care of every single detail to make our vacation just perfect at all times.
Awesome trip, our very first Virgin Islands charter, this was excellent! Great food, drinks, and amazing service!
Steve and Cheryl
We have been doing charters in the Virgin Islands since 2012 and this has definitely been the best one ever! Taylor and Denise met our every need and want!

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip that was perfect for 1 years old, to 50! Denise and Taylor made sure that we always had the best food and drink, and ensured we had an incredibly memorable Christmas, one that we will never forget.

Captain/Chef Denise Made Our Honeymoon Amazing!
My wife and I are just getting back and settled from our honeymoon with Denise on Bella Vita and I just wanted to reach out and let you know how absolutely AMAZING it was. Denise is not only an amazing Captain but she is also an insanely good chef! We could not believe the food that she was preparing for us, how good it was and all done in a small kitchen! Before my wife and I left, I realized that we were really jumping into this blind and neither of us really knew what it was going to be like but Denise blew us away and we could not have pictured it any better. We are really hoping on booking her and the boat again at some point so I sure hope you hold onto her! Thanks for the perfect trip!
Jason & Kaitland
We can’t wait to come back in October. Denise is absolutely fantastic, and we want to adopt her! Our daughter, Madeline, adored her and tears flowed as we left.
Best. Crew. Ever! Their every waking moment was spent making sure we had as perfect a vacation as it is possible to have. The strict and unusual dietary requirements of two of us were not a problem; Denise’s food was imaginative and delicious. Everything was made fresh, followed the dietary requirements, and was of 5-star restaurant caliber…
