Chris and Nikki are the owners and operators of Catamaran QUEST.
Captain Chris grew up in upstate New York, spending summers in St. Thomas living aboard his father’s sailboat and exploring the islands. He broke his first sailing record at the age of 8 and never looked back. Chris has spent the past 12 years living and working in the US and British Virgin Islands both on and off sailboats. He has chosen endeavors that impact the health of the ocean’s reefs and the sustainability of our environment – installing alternate power sources in the Virgin Islands where resources are especially precious; and co-founding the Caribbean Lionfish Safari group in an effort to protect the local sea life from invasive species. Chris has worked with organizations like REEF, CORE and NOAA to help map the island’s reefs and record it’s health and know species. His love and connection to the islands and sea shine like a beacon from the helm of Quest.
Nikki grew up in the Ocean State of Rhode Island. She too has always had a deep connection to the sea. Her early years were spent exploring the world relentlessly – fueled by a desire to immerse in new cultures, experience their people and sample their cuisine. She fell in love with the notion of living at sea while working as a Dive Master on boats in Thailand during the cold winter months. During the warmer months, Nikki focused on her career as a nutrition counselor where she excelled at sharing her passion for cooking. She believes great meals come from exceptional ingredients, time honored techniques and from experimenting with the freshest local foods and seasonal fare. Raised in a very Italian, food loving family, her most cherished memories are of sharing time with loved ones around the dinner table. She brings that same warmth and camaraderie to every meal aboard Quest.

I will never forget the days of pure bliss we spent sailing and diving the British Virgin Islands on the beautiful Catamaran Quest with our friends and gracious hosts, Captain Chris and Chef Nikki. The yacht was extraordinarily comfortable. Our cabin was roomier than I could have imagined and we slept the sweetest sleep and woke up to the most beautiful sunrises. What a feeling to start the day with a refreshing swim and Nikki’s amazing breakfast! Chris and Nikki took us to some incredible secret diving sites that were teeming with fish and healthy coral. I am an underwater photographer and always looking for abundant and healthy marine life. We really appreciated how well Quest was set up for divers. The aft diving deck is roomy and a great place to easily get into dive gear. Entry and exit was super easy, which was much appreciated by this lazy diver with creaky knees. In between dives we ate so much of Nikki’s gourmet cooking, took naps on the big trampoline up front, listened to favorite music on a great sound system, went ashore and explored the different islands. It was just The ultimate relaxation trip! The two things that really sets Quest apart from other charter catamarans is that Quest is surprisingly well laid out making the onboard experience unusually comfortable, even with a group of 6 passengers. Secondly, the crew, Nikki and Chris, are, besides being true professionals, some of the nicest, most easygoing, warm, fun and welcoming people we ever met! They did absolutely everything to keep us in a zone of pure bliss throughout the entire charter. If you get a chance to spend some time on beautiful Quest, do not hesitate! This is a unique experience quite in a class by itself, a euphoric dream that surpassed all our expectations. We can’t wait to go back again!

ABSOLUTELY LOVED QUEST!!!
I went on the Quest with my boyfriend and we absolutely loved it! We traveled around the USVI’s and the BVI’s and had a new experience everyday. We had the opportunity to scuba dive, explore caves, relax on the beach, experience the towns on land, and so much more. Nikki and Chris were wonderful hosts, not to mention the food was delicious! They were incredibly knowledgeable about the islands and were very accommodating. To top it all off, there was an entire family of dolphins that were riding on the waves from bow of the boat to welcome us home to St Croix on our last day. This trip was unlike any other and an invaluable experience.

I would have never dreamed of taking a trip like this and now I cant wait to do another. The catamaran was beautiful, extremely comfortable and well appointed. I had never slept on a boat and was a little anxious about it, but sleeping was great.The Crew, Nikki and Chris started out as strangers and I now consider them friends. The views were over the top amazing every day of the trip just got better and better and when you thought it couldn’t get any more serene than this, something else would come in to view. From the fish to the snorkeling, to the islands and then the food. All I can say is WOW! If you ever get the chance to take a trip on Quest don’t pass it up. It’s a once in a lifetime experience that no one should miss.
