You all have exceeded our expectations. We all had such an amazing time. We never wanted for anything from the delicious meals to the many find and varied activities we were always happy! We appreciated all your recommendations of great things to do, and your ability to find new experiences for us since we have visited the BVI's a few times before. We would recommend you all to anyone visiting the BVI and we would never want another crew for ourselves. We so enjoyed having a crew of 3 so we could spend time with each of you. We are sad to leave the week went too fast. We will miss you all!!

Looking Forward To Our Next Adventure on Eclipse

We have been excited about coming onboard Eclipse for nearly a year now. When our friends told us about the catamaran experience we were ready to sign up. As we got closer we were a little concerned about the trip not meeting our expectations. As soon as we took our dinghy ride to meet Eclipse, we realized our concerns were way off base. Not only were the Captain and Chef attentive and helpful but, most importantly , they made us feel like family and members of the Eclipse crew. Waking each day to another fabulous meal followed by our story time and our plan for the day ahead just made the experience that much more incredible. Each day we sailed and explored somewhere new and just when you thought things couldn't be more fun and beautiful, the next day arrived. Each meal was expertly prepared and would have made any world renowned chef envious of their quality and presentation. Our only regret of the whole trip was that it had to come to an end. Eventually the real world came back to haunt us and we headed home, we knew we would be back. We were not just leaving a crew behind on Eclipse, we felt like we were leaving behind family. Until next time!

We keep having these amazing memories of the Blue Moon and you two. What a time of beauty and pampering. What you got out of that Galley was incredible, as were the daily Adventures. We count ourselves very fortunate to have been able to have the experience on the Blue Moon in the Virgin Islands with such attentive, professional and FUN people…THANKS for a DREAM come TRUE!!!

Captain Jack has intriguing historical stories about the Caribbean and Jaimey will guide you on snorkeling tours around the best reefs in the area. Jack is from the United States and Jaimey is from the cold north of Canada. Together, these two are a professional hard working team who are enjoying life to the fullest.

Captain Jack was born and raised in Annapolis Maryland sailing the waters of the Chesapeake. He started sailing as a young boy with his father. He studied Nuclear Engineering at the University of Maryland and after served in the US Navy as a submariner. After leaving the Navy, Jack worked for as a Nuclear Engineering consultant for 12 years during which time he obtained a Master’s in Business Administration from Johns Hopkins University in Maryland. Jack built sea miles doing deliveries and passages throughout his years in the corporate world. Finally, Jack decided to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a sea Captain and left the US. Jack single handed across the Atlantic and has completed many other crossings and long distance deliveries. Jack has also skippered numerous recreational vessels, including day sails and dive boats. Jack is passionate about being on the water, but even more passionate about sailing. He has spent the past 7 years in the Caribbean working in the private yacht industry, running day charters and Captaining term charters vessels with up to 10 guests. Jack has a contagious joy for life, and with his experience in sailing, determination and hard work ethic it is ensured that all guests will have a safe, relaxing and delightful vacation.

Jaimey’s love for warmth and water brought her to the Caribbean 6 years ago where she learned to sail. With Jaimey’s love for sailing and the water she is the optimal first mate and with fine dining and good food as a passion of her families, she could not help but have a natural affinity and love for cooking.

Captain Jack & Mate Jaimey are joined by Mel, your chef onboard Eclipse!

Mel

Mel has always had a passion with food…be it eating or making it. After graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s degree she had little interest in pursuing, she earned her Culinary Arts degree from the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Chicago. It was there that Mel was able to turn her passion into a career. After a few Chicago winters, however, she was ready to trade in her snow boots for flip flops, and that’s just what she did. Even more fortuitous, she was able to find a venue in which to channel her love of cooking in the Caribbean: cooking on charter yachts.

Mel enjoys cooking just about everything! She has a deep appreciation for all cuisines; be it comfort food from her own Midwest roots, to international zest, to healthy and light. Mel’s favorite way to cook is to take something “ordinary” and add a special flair to make it stand out from the norm.

Mel also enjoys sharing her passion with others. During her time working on boats she has written and published a cookbook, created an online support forum for yacht chefs (currently with over 200 members), and most recently founded Island Eats Culinary Adventures; an interactive cooking experience designed to teach others the fundamentals of cooking. Cooking has always been something she loves and is thrilled at being able to explore that passion in multiple venues.

Of course, working on a boat in the islands would not be as fun if she didn’t enjoy the activities! Mel loves scuba diving, snorkeling, water skiing, and just floating in the water. Her personal interests include hiking, running, yoga, writing, exploring new horizons, watching movies, doing crossword puzzles, photography and meeting new people.

Mel looks forward to meeting you soon and showing you what she enjoys doing most: cooking delicious meals for others!
