CAPTAIN JESSE VAN WYK
Jesse grew up by the water in beautiful Cape Town surfing competitively, fishing and sailing. He completed his BSC in Marine Animal Science, after which he met his Fiancé, Amy Campion, his partner both on and off the boat. Captain Jesse is extremely comfortable in and on the water to say the least; he enjoys sailing, diving and water sports, but most importantly, he loves discovering beautiful anchorages for his guests to enjoy.
Amy Campion grew up in Durban, spending most of her mornings’ paddle skiing or surfing with her father. She also loves to dive, snorkel, and continues to expand her wealth of sea knowledge that guests also get to enjoy. Thanks to Amy’s passion for Caribbean marine animals, guests enjoy a dose of learning and exploring.
AMY CAMPION – Chef
Amy is an experienced Chef and versatile in catering to any dietary requirement. Before she started yachting, Amy worked, as a Graphic Designer. Though Graphic Design and Food might not seem related, they are in Amy’s kitchen. She utilizes her previous experience to design a carefully curated one of kind meal for her guests. She trained in a catering kitchen in Cape Town before landing her first yachting role. Amy continues her cuisine education by participating in local courses in the different ports she and Captain Jesse have visited.
As a team, Captain Jesse and Chef Amy have managed many charters for the last six years. They are exceptionally experienced in the Caribbean and Mediterranean waters. Currently, they are thrilled to formally invite guests aboard Sur L’eau.
NICO JANSE VAN RENSBURG – Deck/Eng
Born and raised in the southern tip of Africa, I spent many a holiday on safari with my family where my love for the outdoors has grown deeper with every trip. But even in these early days the attraction of water was strong, and I ended up pursuing that as an open water swimmer. After school the oceans started calling and I soon realised where my true passion lay. I started my journey of yacht training and diving courses. I worked for a time on The Sustainable Seas Trust vessel, Boaz. This enabled me to accumulate not only invaluable experience but also notch up some sea miles. Following this an opportunity opened up for me working for a fleet of large charter catamarans in the fascinating country of Turkey. Today, learning not only yachtsmanship but the skills required in the hospitality industry.
I am a now a qualified RYA Offshore skipper and also an enthusiastic PADI Dive Master. Enjoying every moment above and below the waves and I can’t wait to share the wonders of the Caribbean and the reefs with our guests.

SUR L’EAU GUESTS COMMENTS
February Charter Grenada To St. Kitts
I was recently onboard the Sur L’eau for a trip from Grenada to St. Kitts. I am writing to tell you about my experience on the trip in hopes that it might assist you with suiting travelers with the boat.
Unfamiliar with this type of travel, I wasn’t sure what to expect and somewhat anxious but I was amazed at the accommodations, activities, and hospitality on the boat. Whether underway or on anchor, the 4-member crew was attentive to make sure all of Sur L’eau’s amenities were available for our pleasure. It was obvious they had planned ahead for every event but weren’t so rigid that they didn’t take advantage of entertainment they thought we would enjoy. Advanced planning was evidenced by live entertainment onboard for birthday and anniversary celebrations, while alterations to the schedule allowed us to take in a blues festival on Mustique and a jazz festival on Bequia. It is this type of engagement with the guests and attention to the guest’s experience that sets this crew apart. Other excursions included lobster BBQ lunch on the beach, waterfalls, lunch on St. Lucia in view of the Pitons, shopping excursions, tour of a chocolate factory, boat ride up Indian River and I’m sure I’ve forgotten some others.
Dining is always a big part of a vacation and I have to say the chef on this boat did a fantastic job. Each and every meal was well prepared. Lunch prepared with a tuna caught while traveling between the islands was greatly appreciated by the guests.
Lastly, I would like to point out the size of the amenities in the staterooms. The bed, along with the shower, restroom and stowage were a very nice size, able to accommodate us very comfortably.
All in all, I can’t think of a thing I would change about my trip or the way these guys manage the boat and the guest’s experience.
January 2020 The Grenadines
Feedback to their broker:
“Our trip was spectacular! We had high expectations and those expectations were surpassed. It was truly an amazing and idyllic trip.
The yacht was clean (sparkly!) every day, decorated beautifully (beyond perfect), with amazing space that we all used as we wished and loved every inch of it. We all used the beanbag chairs throughout the trip at various times and all over the boat. And the hammock was a lovely surprise that we all sat in. The couches and settees everywhere were comfortable and we all used them in various places depending on the weather and our need to be in or out of the sun. There were excellent water sports available and we used them all! We snorkeled, went wake boarding and tubing behind the zodiac, paddle boarded and kayaked and used the Hobie paddle boards as well (my mom LOVED those things!). And, we floated and had fun on the rainbow unicorn and pink flamingo floaty toys. Great fun. The swim platform was very handy and fun to sit on as well. The towels to dry off were clean and fluffy and always available as we emerged from the water. And, they were often WARM for us at just the right moment.
The crew was beyond attentive.
We felt like royalty! The service was spot on and friendly. The crew was there when we needed them and invisible when they sensed we should be alone. They were friendly and kind and fun. They seemed to know what we needed when we needed something.
The food was amazing. The chef worked magic with the food and knew exactly what we liked! She was particularly attentive to my food restrictions and always prepared something a little different for me, but along the same lines as what she served everyone else. We ate so well and loved every bite! And, it was nutritious and the plates were always very pretty. As was the table! A different beautiful table setting for every meal. Everything was better than expected and I can’t imagine how they could improve on anything.
And, the wine and cocktails were spectacular! We enjoyed delicious wine with our meals and a fun, unique cocktail every day at cocktail time.
We were celebrating several milestone birthdays and they surprised us with a fun, decorated yacht upon our return one afternoon, along with a special dinner for the celebration. And, the chef made a special birthday coffee cake for one guest on our last morning for breakfast. She was incredible.
I don’t think I could gush any more about our experience. It was perfect. I would go back tomorrow if I could, and I know all of my family feels the same way. I would highly recommend this yacht along with the amazing crew to anyone wishing an amazing yachting experience in the Caribbean.
I’m glad they loved having us as much as we loved being with them all week.”
