Yacht offers SCUBA and FREE-DIVING onboard.
Equipment rental can be arranged and be onboard in time for your charter. This will be for the cost of the guest.
Diving into the ocean while holding your breath is the most natural and accessible way to discover the beauty that lies beneath the surface. There is hardly a better way to learn how to freedive than on your charter vacation on 3 Sisters!
Your training will take place throughout the duration of your charter with daily in-water sessions wherever we go, as well as some theory and dry training practice onboard. Think of it as personalized instruction where you have the full attention of your instructor and the flexibility to learn at a more relaxed pace instead of being taught in a group on a fixed schedule.

Heiko, born and raised in Germany, is an RYA Offshore Yacht Master. He left his job in IT management in 2014 to begin his dream to travel. Initially intending to be away for about a year, he soon realized that going back to an office-based job did not feel right for him anymore. Since then he has travelled throughout South and Central America, Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa and Australia. During this time he visited 30+ countries, speed-hiked the Camino de Santiago, hiked up 5000m high mountains, learned to speak Spanish, went scuba and freediving around the world and had many more beautiful experiences above and below the water. He is also a free-divng and yoga instructor. Heiko loves to be out in the blue of the ocean and enjoys sharing his passions as a guide by creating safe and unique experiences.
Rebecca was born and raised in New York City but has lived all around the world since 2004. After graduating from NYU in 2002 with B.A. in Economics & Psychology, Rebecca worked at investment banks in New York and Hong Kong as a trading assistant. A trip to Australia in 2005 changed her life completely - she learned to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef and fell completely in love with diving. Two years later, she left the concrete jungle and trading floor for real jungles and sea floors.
She spent two months diving her way around the Philippines, three months on a marine conservation expedition in Madagascar and four months completing her Divemaster internship in Malaysia. Afterwards, life took an unexpected turn and she found herself living in Sweden for a year, where she discovered her love for sailing and life afloat. Still holding onto her dream to teach scuba and share the underwater world with others, she put her plans for sailing to the Caribbean on hold to become a PADI Instructor and has worked in Thailand, Hawaii and Indonesia. She loves life in the tropics, surrounded by water, nature and wildlife and thrives on sharing her passions with her guests.
Heiko and Rebecca met on Utila, Honduras while they were doing their Master Free-diver Course in 2015. Their love for the ocean, travel, exploration and discovery is what brought them into diving, and it is what has brought them into yachting.
They obtained their RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualifications together in Gibraltar, sailing thousands of miles along the coasts of Spain, Portugal and Morocco, dodging the infamous orcas along the way.
They are passionate about providing a highly professional level of service in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere while creating the most memorable experiences for their guests. They love getting to know you and tailoring each charter to your preferences and desires, allowing you to kick back, relax and enjoy. With a deep love and respect for the natural world, they maintain a strong focus on environmentally aware hospitality and best practices to ensure minimal impact on the environment.
The food is a big part of your experience on board and you can expect to be well taken care of by this food-loving duo. You will be treated to a variety of breads and baked goods, freshly baked on board by Heiko, while Rebecca will take you on a culinary tour around the world, creating fresh, flavorful dishes inspired by her many years of travel and living in different countries. They are happy to cater to a variety of dietary requirements.
Heiko and Rebecca look forward to welcoming you on board, showing you the wonders of the Virgin Islands and creating memories to last a lifetime!
You Two Were Perfect For Us!
Nor sure that words on a page will adequately describe how we feel about our charter. After a long year of cancelled travels - this was a great start to a new year. We weren't sure what to expect, especially bringing Drew (9) and Blake (5) along. You were perfect for us and made the whole week so comfortable.
We appreciate your attention to detail - so we didn't have to :). The kids are super thankful you anchored where the Easter Bunny could safely (and quietly) find us. You even left a light on for him!! You made my 41st birthday unforgettable with the snorkelling, the food and the scratch-made cake!
We knew this would be an adventure with the kids but are truly thankful that you two made their experiences feel as important as ours. You fed us so well and taught all of us so much.
The dinghy rides, beach time, hikes, snorkeling... it was all awesome! We swam with turtles, rays (even an eagle ray)! We had tarpon and barracuda sightings to accompany the colorful coral and fish! Each and every meal was thoughtfully made and the drinks were delicious! We cant wait to return and see more of what the USVI (and maybe the BVI's) has to offer. We may leave the kids at home next time but I'm sure they would disagree :).
Stay in touch - we plan to follow your adventures and see you again when we can!
A Lifetime Trip
We came on this trip with a plan and itinerary that differed from what we originally scheduled. Dut to Covi we had to push our trip back one year, travel to the USVI instead of the BVI's, and moved to a new charter company and crew.
Despite that, or maybe because of all that our trip was wonderful. The high winds made for some changes, but you both remained steadfast in providing signature service with quality, smiles and fun stories. We felt comfortable sleeping in, relaxing being silly and simple spending time together as a family - thank you for removing the stress of planning and having to think ahead - you allowed us to focus on the fund of just being together.
We head home tomorrow with a little bit of sunburn and far more stories to tell of our once (maybe twice) in a lifetime trip! We hope to be calling you again for a trip to the BVI's
Fantastic Trip! We had an amazing week and saw some fantastic fish snorkeling. Food onboard was amazing and plentiful.
Heiko was great with my daughter snorkeling and showing her different fish on the reef.
Rebecca's food was great, service was the best.
Thank you both for a great week. We can't wait to visit again.
If 6-star rating was a thing, that's what I'd rate this place. Everything here exceeded my expectations greatly. The food, the service and really just the personality of our crew. I hope to come back soon
The Perfect Antidote
Thank you Rebecca and Heiko. This past week has been perfect antidote for our journey over the last year! You spoiled us with the cuisine and all around. We will have fond memories of the sailing and snorkeling together for a lifetime. We really appreciated the kind hospitality, our escape to nature. Please look us up when your visit NYC.
Definitely Would Like To Come Back
Thank you Rebecca and Heiko. This week was so much fun and the food and drinks exceeded expectations! The time flew by. You guys did a wonderful job keeping me and my family entertained and comfortable. Definitely would like to come back.
We Don't Want to Leave!
What a fabulous week! Glorious weather, scrumptious food, nice flow of beverages and fellowship. Superb service with attention to detail. We don't want to leave!!!
Thanks for providing such a special time in our lives... one we will never forget and will talk about for years to come.
So Very Special
5 Star Service from the start to the finish. Every need was anticipated. No request was unmet. You gave us some of the best memories of our life and many of those memories included the two of you. We Can't wait to come back and see you again.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
Your attention to detail and your sincere comitment to the happiness of your guests are what made this experience so very special.
By Far the Best of 2020!
"By far the best part of 2020. Thankful to the crew for sharing their time and talents with our family. For making this the MOST SPECIAL HOLIDAY 'SEASUN' to remember. From the moment we stepped on board the 3 Sisters - we were welcomed with Royal VIP treatment (Painkillers and Dramamine) Too many great memories to list, but we all enjoyed the delicious meals. Theri attention to details make the experience elegant with fresh flowers, tablecloths and tea lights! Especially loved the home baked choc chip cookies and milk on Christmas Eve. All of the desserts were amazing!! I will never forget our hike on Christmas Day on Reef Bay up tpo the waterfall trickle and a refreshing fresh water dip and then passing by Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg's yacht on our way back to the boat! We learned so much and had so much fun. So sad to see it coming to an end. Cheers to raising sails on 3 Sisters!"
" From snorkeling the deep blue around Boobie Rock, to catching a barracuda, to hiking Ram's head while singing Christmas carols and enjoying all the meals and drinks, there are endless memories and moments that we were able to experience aboard 3 Sisters. THANK YOU"
"Many memories in 2020 ...and this was the BEST one, not only in 2020 but in all our family memories! Thank you for making it very special for us. Blessings to you!"
Truly a Marquee Experience!
It is hard to make the words that could show our appreciation for all the work, planning, and joyful execution that went into this wonderful week. This was a breathtaking combination of islands, views, water, coral, fish, turtles, stingrays, and even goats that would be difficult to duplicate. Michael and Casey, wow, what a team, seamlessly delivering the amazing experience of food and float. This was truly a marquee experience for us. Thanks for everything.
We Will Treasure This Time!
Truly a glorious week enjoyed with both of you aboard 3 Sisters. The islands of USVI and BVI were incredible. The islands and snorkeling locations you selected for us to explore were perfect. Captain Michael, we could not have been better cared for and served, your calmness and attention to every detail was so appreciated . And Chef Casey, the food and desserts could not have been better prepared and presented - it was truly a 5 star presentation! You both spoiled us each and every day. We will treasure the time we shared with both of you. The cherished memories of this trip will be retold many times for years to come!
Where to begin!
Where to begin! To say these will be the most amazing memories that will last a lifetime is an understatement. Everything was superb to say the least. The food, service, and just the two of you in general sooo awesome! I can't believe we visited eight beautiful islands! So amazing!!!
It was a perfect way to spend our 10 year! Keep doing everything the same, you guys rock! We will be back again.
Thank You For Showing Us This Gorgeous Place!
Considering that this was a last minute impulsive click on our iPad, we couldn't have dreamed of such a perfect vacation. Thank you so much for welcoming us to your "home" and being our BFF's, this week.
Casey, the food was over the top fantastic! So nice to be spoiled for a week!
Michael, your itinerary who perfect! Thank you for showing us this gorgeous place
Grateful Our Time Was With You!
We love you guys!!! What an absolute blessing & joy it has been this past week enjoying Gods beautiful creation on this awesome catamaran. You two are very talented! Grateful that our time here in the BVI was with you two. Thank you for all the AMAZING memories! We will cherish them for a lifetime!
Casey you are very gifted with food, you inspired us! Also hats off to both of you for crushing the mixology game! We have done LOTS of traveling (18 countries last year alone) but this week with you two on Three Sisters has been the best trip by far!
See you next time!
Twenty Year Dream Fulfilled!
My 20 year dream has been fulfilled. More fun that I ever expected. Great snorkel spots and great beach bars. Michael, you found the most protected spots when the wind came. Casey, the food was fantastic. Never dreamed I would gain weight on this trip :)
We will never forget everything they did for us!
WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN?! First off, I wish I could rate higher than 10 because the crew were the cats pajamas!! Mike was fantastic, made himself 100% a part of our group and ensured we had the most memorable week ever. He was professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond.
Casey spoiled us with every meal, cleaned up after us, kept us hydrated and carb loaded. Took care of us, partied with us, made sure we were all accounted for — by the end of the week we all called her mom.
Will never forget everything they did for us, literally made the whole trip SO worth it.
They Killed It!
Michael is an absolute legend and we were super lucky to have him as our captain, I would recommend him to anybody going on charter. Michael is super chill and was always down to let us chill and party and do our own thing. He also made sure we always got where we needed to be and had a plan for everything - showed us around all the bars and restaurants, got us to and from them safely even when we had partied too hard. In addition, he was a huge advocate and friend to each person on the yacht and made us all feel liked and cared for.
Casey was amazing! Her food was so delicious and she went above & beyond for everything we needed and we loved hanging with her. I thought she would be frazzled before I met her because it’s such a hard job but she absolutely killed it.
We'll Be Back!
Mike Wilson was extremely organized and so much fun. He got involved with everything we did and bought us together like a family. He was kind and was always so positive about everything. Absolutely enjoyed having him as our captain and will definitely request him as our captain next year. We'll be back.
Casey is a pro at keeping the boat in shape. She was simply amazing! Although we had several dietary restrictions on our boat, she made sure everyone’s needs were met. She was really helpful with her tips and knowledge of the islands/itinerary. She made it super easy. She’s an amazing chef!
