Captain Anna swapped a corporate career as a professional engineer for what she calls her blue office out on the Ocean. She loves to travel and the freedom of being off the grid on a boat. Anna has worked on a variety of boats from small 35ft dive boats and sail boats to 220ft super-yachts carrying helicopters and submarines. Her heart and environmental values however, is with sailing yachts. This is Annas second season in the BVI and she loves the variety of islands, each providing a very different experience for you to enjoy. As a PADI diving Instructor and kitesurfer Anna has a unique perspective on the BVIs from her experience of being on, in and under these waters and would love to be your guide. Her degree in Oceanography means she is on hand to chat with you about aspects of the Ocean and local sea life you may be interested in or not ever have realised about.
Courtney began her culinary and world travelling career from the time she was 5, sailing, surfing and hiking in California while learning to cook from her Grandfather. Her passion for adventure and food only grew from there! Knowing how much she loves the outdoors, and with studying Environmental science she realized that her career path would be her dream job of combining her two passions with fresh air and open seas on sailboats. With a wide range of specialties, including flavours from the American table, Mediterranean, and Caribbean; as well as gluten free and vegetarian diets Courtney is able to create a menu tailored to you and your guests.
Marton was 14 when he decided to start his adventure in the hospitality industry. After finishing school he realized this was the best way get to know cultures and places around the world.The first step was Ireland. He worked in one of Dublins best hotels as a bar manager, being awarded employee of the year 2 times in recognition of his excellent customer service. After a very eventful 8 years he decided to move away from cities and move closer to Mother nature. The next step was the sunny Island of Malta, South Europe and a year later to The Caribbean. Away from the city life Marton instantly fell in love with the island lifestyle and the sea, realizing the importance of having respect for nature. Martons motto is The best way to enjoy life is to visit new places, get to know new cultures so that you can feel at home at the same time. Respect yourself and respect everything and everyone around you.
