Jonathan found his love for the water and the outdoors as an Eagle Scout growing up in South Carolina. In college he learned to sail in the Charleston Oceanic Sailing Association regattas. After graduating from the University of South Carolina, Jonathan moved to St. Thomas where he became the head bartender at the famous Duffy’s Love Shack and he fell in love with the Virgin Islands and diving. In 2011 he bought a sailboat and became a US Coast Guard licensed captain, spending the next seven years chartering and exploring the Virgin Islands. Jonathan and Katie are excited to share to magic of the Virgin Islands and create new adventures and memories with you aboard S/Y Yes Dear!
Katie is a small town girl with big world experience and is excited to bring her knowledge of food and fun to your vacation! With a background in catering, resort event planning, cafes and organic eateries, Katie has always had a passion for cooking and hosting. Her career brought her to the sunny island of St. Thomas, where she fell in love with the simple, sweet way of island life and met her future love and partner, Captain Jonathan Hardin. Soon after, the opportunity to cook on the water presented itself and she jumped into the world of yachting. As a luxury yacht chef and chief stewardess Katie was able to take her love of food and entertaining to a higher level. With three years of experience running luxury yacht charters throughout the Caribbean, she will amaze you with her incredible food and warm hospitality.

Fancy, Johnathan, and Pedro the pirate are the best ever. Literally the best boat trip I have ever been on! Charismatic and personable all the while they were just spoiling us the whole time. You would be silly to choose anyone else.

First I would like to say THANK YOU to Fancy, Jonathon and Pedro(black dog!!!) for one of the best days ever!!! The day was absolutely perfect! I was traveling with 3 friends and we wanted to be spoiled for the day and boy were we spoiled!!! From the minute we stepped out of the taxi until we step back onto the dock!!! Fancy and Jonathon really know how to treat their guests. They were so infornative about the area, great drinks(Pedro Punches, YUM), avocado appetizer and seafood boil. Everything was so yummy! The snorkeling spots were great and when I just wanted to take a break from snorkeling I floated behind the boat in a water lounger! They made sure my Pedro Punch was always refreshed. 🙂 Can’t wait to go back to St. Thomas so I can sail again with Happy Island Charters.

We spent a family day yesterday with Jonathan and Fancy on a sailboat , it was memorable!
You are treated like royalty and entertained with humor, food and
historical information about the area. We swam with turtles, snorkeled, sat in inflatable chairs in the water and sailed into sunset grille as a finale! Happy Island Charters is the only charter to use!
Thank you Fancy and Jonathan!!!

We sailed with Fancy and Jonathon and the amazing pirate dog, Pedro and had such a great day! With two teenagers and two senior citizens the brothers could not have been more fabulous! They were accommodating and made sure we had a most wonderful time on board their sailboat! I would highly recommend chartering them for half-day, a full day or more! The pizza place was delicious and a one-of-a-kind T-shirt since it’s not easy to get to it! A Big Thank you goes out to Christopher, Jonathon and Pedro! Keep catching those fish Pedro!

There are no shortage of charter boats in St Thomas. These guys are great! Jonathan, Pedro & Fancy will ensure you have a great day. They know the waters and the best places to stop and enjoy the waters of the islands.
