Captain Keith and Chef AJ, not only have a love of sailing, diving, and entertaining but also enjoy sharing these experiences with others. They made a commitment 5 years ago to create a strategy to exit their land based life and find a way to live their life on the water and find an opportunity to enrich others’ lives by sharing this wonderful adventure. They are excited to share with guests the adventure of sailing the beautiful waters of the Virgin Islands, exploring the underwater world, hiking and exploring, as well as unparalleled culinary experiences. Come join us for an adventure of a lifetime we can’t wait to share it with you!!!
CAPTAIN KEITH was bit by the sailing bug as a teenager; he first learned to sail Sunfish and Hobie Cats with friends on Big Stone Lake in South Dakota of all places! He grew up fishing, water skiing and boating on the lakes in SD and MN. Keith is an accomplished freshwater and saltwater angler and certified PADI SCUBA diver.
Later, he joined friends on charter in the BVI and discovered his passion for sailing keel boats and catamarans. In 2002, he put a picture of a 43’ Jeanneau Decks Salon on his refrigerator – 18 months later, he bought “Daddy’s Girl” – a sister ship of the one depicted on his fridge! Shortly after, he delivered “DG” to Antigua and then earned his Captain’s license and began delivering yachts coastwise, as well as to and from the Caribbean and along the seaboard. Keith has had the pleasure of skippering charters in the Chesapeake Bay and the Caribbean. Keith enjoys helping others discover their own “sailor within” and hone their skills.
Keith also has a background in the hospitality industry and loves to entertain. Whether manning the grill or the bar, Keith takes great pride in delivering an exceptional experience to guests. He is an accomplished amateur “Sous Chef” and Mixologist, and oenophile. He finds joy in serving and helping others.
CHEF AJ: Having grown up on the coast of North Carolina, AJ spent her youth on and in the waters of the Atlantic coastal area. She began her diving adventures at the age of 14 and became a PADI dive instructor at the age of 22. Sharing the underwater world with seasoned divers, new divers, and students is a lifelong passion. In addition to her years of diving she has also crewed on offshore fishing charters and is quite an accomplished angler!!
Sailing and boating was major part of her life while growing up. She spent her early boating years on pleasure boats and crewing on deliveries with her Uncle up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Most recently she has become an extremely competent sailor while crewing on deliveries from Annapolis to St. Martin, the BVI’s to Bonaire, and Annapolis to Charleston, SC. Her calm demeanor and “can do” spirit assures that all on board feel safe and are able to enjoy the experience.
AJ spent her college years working her way through school in the restaurant industry. This ignited a passion in her for food preparation, exploration and presentation!! She was also involved in the opening of a very successful restaurant in Charlotte, NC where she not only participated in menu selections and cocktail creations but also in catering for private events. This experience along with her time spent in the boating community will insure you experience a fabulous culinary experience in addition to an incredible sailing adventure!!

Wow! Just Wow!
We cannot even begin to tell you what an amazing time we had this week. Your hospitality was more than we could have ever asked for. You’re kind, patient, giving, and just plain good people. We came on this trip expecting to have a fun time. We never expected that it would be a life changing experience. You absolutely made Blake’s vacation by teaching him more about sailing. Watching him sail with such excitement and enthusiasm was so refreshing to see, and we have you to thank. AJ, I may have even learned a thing or two about cooking, and that’s an amazing feat by you since I usually hate it. I am now encouraged!
We cannot thank you both enough for everything! We don’t even hope to see you again, we WILL SEE YOU AGAIN! And we will absolutely keep in touch.
Love you two both,
Blake and Shannon
P.S. This trip is going to cost us when we get home. Keith was right – Blake does have a sailing addiction:)
Wow…Amazing first class!!!
This was by far the best trip ever, I/we cannot express the words to say enough words about Capt. Keith and Chef AJ. I travel for a living and plan events and this is one trip I will not forget…we will be back very soon not only because of an awesome trip, but to visit lifelong friends.
We love you guys,

Trip of a lifetime!!
Words cannot express how grateful we are for your hospitality this past week. We did not just rent a charter and crew…we were invited into your home and welcomed with open arms. This was truly a trip of a lifetime that we will remember forever. It will be hard to top it, so much that we may just have to do it every year! If you are ever in the Bay Area, please let us know! Muy Bueno!
Rich & Sabrina
Most amazing vacation (2018)
This has been the most amazing vacation I’ve ever had. AJ and captain Keith are wonderful people. They treated us like royalty. They know the best spots on the islands. It was relaxing, adventurous and very entertaining. We absolutely loved every minute. Can’t wait to come back.
Mary and Scott
Dear Captain Keith and AJ,
Thank you so much for taking us from the mundane to the magnificent! No rock was left upturned in trying to satisfy our every pleasure and need. This was a vacation we will never forget, but one we will praise and recommend forever!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Take care and happy sailing until we meet again!
Dave and Ailiene
What can I say except pure perfection. Keith and AJ you make the greatest team. We enjoyed every moment from the time we met on the dock to our tearful goodbye. We feel blessed that we had the opportunity to make new friends. Keith, your words at our “special ceremony” were touching and AJ you have the biggest heart of anyone we have ever met. Thank you for everything you’ve done to make this a memory we will cherish forever!!!
Don and Jill
Hands down without a doubt, sailing with Keith and AJ is a must. It is no longer a want but a need. Great hosts, wonderful boat, amazing food, diving and snorkeling, land adventures, Foxy’s, sunsets and sunrises. I can go on and on, but words do not do it justice. A week on the water with Keith and AJ will restore your soul, make you relaxed and will rekindle the romance in your life. It will remind you just how gracious and genuine people can be.
One of the best weeks of my life…
Probably one of the best weeks of my life! The boat was beautiful, food delicious, but the best part was the crew – AJ and Keith – you both made this trip by your kindness, attention to detailm always attending to our needs, and keeping our glasses “happy”. Thank you both for such a memorable experience.
Jon and Gloria
The time we spent with your aboard the yacht has been one of the most enjoyable experiences of our lives. We really appreciate all the attention to detail and the wonderful conversations we had throughout the trip. The food, cabin, and all the wonderful cocktails exceeded our high expectations.
Chris and Rita
Aye-chee-wa-wa! What a fantastic week! We loved every minute of our week on charter! Keith and A.J. are truly special in every way! Their attention to detail for making every passenger special is such a gift! We are blessed for getting to spend time with them! It was an awesome way to spend Christmas week and we will all want to do this vacation with them again!

New Years 2018
Thank you so much for an amazing Caribbean adventure! What an adventure we had – the girls learned to scuba dive on a beautiful coral reef and a sunken ship, snorkeling with a nurse shark and being pulled around by Persius. The attention and service were by far the most special part of the trip. Thank you for ringing in 2018 with us!

Keith and AJ were wonderful hosts for our week in the BVI’s. We had a fantastic week of sailing, snorkeling, diving, and dining. We visited the “hot spots” as well as more secret hideaways. Keith is an experienced, competent captain who knows the best places to go depending on the weather. AJ is a chef extraordinaire who prepared the most delicious meals. In addition, AJs skills as a dive-master helped my wife get comfortable with diving again after a long absence. It was one of the best vacations I have been on and can’t wait to go again.
After sailing for a week in the BVI’s with Keith and AJ, they had showed us a lot of the various islands and wonderful coves. We were totally confident in our Captain Keith and his first mate AJ. We still talk about this vacation and would definitely do it again. You can’t beat sunning on the top of the deck while sailing! This was definitely the best vacation for relaxing and having fun. Each day is a new and different adventure.
AJ was very professional in helping me learn how to scuba dive. I was nervous but she was able to calm and assure me. She was successful in helping me accomplish my first very exciting diving adventure! The underwater scenery and colorful fish were truly amazing.
Keith and AJ are a wonderful couple, easy going and fun! They were a significant part of the fun and wonderful BVI sailing adventure. This has to be on everyone’s bucket list!! We high recommend them!
The meals were amazing and delicious. They would pick up fresh food at our various stops and prepare some very tasty dishes on the boat. They also knew some awesome places to eat out, like my favorite lobster & crab! You really get to know some of the friendly local people and places to explore!
