*****PLEASE NOTE:

Leslie and RJ and Mackenzie and Jace will switch out running charters on BelieveN this season.



RJ AND LESLIE



Leslie has a zest for life and loves meeting new people. She believes that strangers are just friends that she hasn't met yet. She enjoys exercising, telling stories, traveling and planning the next adventure.



Leslie was born in Nebraska, grew up in Virginia and returned home to "The Good Life". This is where she met her husband R.J., at a Nebraska Football tailgate. Their first adventure together was to the British Virgin Islands where they fell in love with each other and the boating life.



Her real calling was to be a rockstar but instead she became a nurse :). Leslie worked in surgery, trauma and then as an Oncology nurse. More recently, she has joined R.J. in their business doing occupational nursing and safety training.



She is considered by many, as a rainmaker. She can take an idea and run with it.



She enjoys cooking for friends and family. She has taken the Rouxbe Culinary course, studied in Thailand and is attending Yacht Chef training in London.



Leslie has two children and one amazing grandchild.



R.J.'s purpose is to have fun and live a life of adventure with passion while inspiring others. He grew up in Lincoln, NE and obtained a BS degree from Oklahoma State University and now owns a business in his hometown.



He is often quoted as saying "we only live once, let's do it right". He loves a new adventure and really is a genuinely nice human. He is always smiling and willing to lend a helping hand, support, or a compliment. Leslie has often been asked if RJ really is as nice as he seems and the answer is undeniably, Yes! He really is.



R.J. enjoys outdoor activities, investing, real estate, golf and snow skiing and is also a pilot.



Sailing and boating have been a big part of R.J.'s life as he has lived on a lake for the last 22 years. With a motorboat and sailboat in the backyard, it has been a lifestyle rather than just a hobby.



RJ and Leslie have shared many adventures over the years including fun trips like the Oktoberfest in Munich, Songkran in Thailand and the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota. They too are very involved in multiple ongoing fundraisers and philanthropic activities.



Their boat BelieveN came from such travels. Her red “N” pays homage to their Nebraska roots. They named her BelieveN, as a reminder to Believe in yourself. Pursue your dreams. Know that you are worth it. Take the leap. Sing the song. Make friends. Live a life – don’t just live. And whatever else you put your mind to, just don’t stop BelieveN



Please come on down and experience the life in this magical part of the world with us!





JACE AND MACKENZIE



Jace was born and raised in Chicago. He excelled at sports and schooling in his youth and became a staple on the Honor Roll and All State team for football. He chose Illinois State for college where he majored in psychology.



When confronted with the choice of footing the bill for grad school or entering the working world Jace took a job and within two years and a promotion or two he realized he wasn’t happy. He wanted to do something he loved and was passionate about. Hawaii was his answer. He moved to the Big Island where he fell into a snorkel job, swimming with dolphins during the day and manta rays at night. Since then, he has lived in various locations including St. Croix, Alaska, Bonaire, and Maui, working on his diving and boating. Jace now has over 3300 dives and is a Master Scuba Diver Instructor. He also holds a 100-ton USCG license and is proficient on a variety of boats including sailing vessels. He has delivered multiple boats in the past few years, accumulating over 5000 nautical miles. Jace recently transitioned from running day trips to doing term charters and is eager to share his passion for the ocean with you.





Mackenzie grew up in a small hill country town in Texas (before you ask, yes everything is bigger there). She attended Texas State university where she received her BA in psychology. How did she end up here in the Virgin Islands? Well, it all started when she met Jace on Koh Phi Phi, followed by a crazy backpacking trip through Asia; the rest is history.



Mackenzie loves to tell stories, and even won a regional competition storytelling in 4th grade, so ask anytime! Her passions are traveling, the ocean, sailing, scuba diving, hiking, and making people laugh. Mackenzie is a Alliance certified 200hr Yoga Teacher, and a PADI divemaster. She has eight years of experience providing a high level of customer service, working as a bartender, chef, and server.

Mackenzie looks forward to getting to know each and every person that climbs aboard BelieveN!



Jace and Mackenzie have traveled and worked together on various boats in Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean. Through great service, informative briefings, and an exploratory spirit, they are beyond excited to share their love for the ocean, diving, sailing, and the Virgin Islands with you!








Reviews:

Gracious Crew
Thank you for one of our favorite weeks ever! Your attention to detail of each guest is second to none. Our excursions were perfect and well planned. Now the food - best ever! Leslie knocked it out of the park with our meals.

Both RJ and Leslie have been the most gracious crew we could ask for and hope to bring our kids back to join us for another trip.
Was A Blast
You know that saying "third time's a charm"? Well it's true!! This is my third trip to the USVI on charter and it was the best trip YET! You two have the perfect personality for this. Chef Leslie is the BOMB. The meals were scrumptious.

Every activity was a blast from chillin' on the boat, to hikes, to going to dinner, to snorkeling - all of it ...super! I absolutely can't wait to come back SOON
Thank you for having us.
Incredible Week.
Just an incredible week! Really don’t know where to start… maybe because we can’t remember… just kiddin’ (kinda)! In all seriousness, this has been an unbelievable trip full of great times and incredible friends of old and new (Jace and Mackenzie)! We sailed the Virgin Islands and experienced things we never have before… swam with large sea turtles, snorkeled shipwrecks and visited historical sites among the islands!

Things were “smooth sailing” all week long, even after we almost ran out of beer on day 3 lol… the crew made more appear in no time and we were “howling at the moon” again as we watched the sun set and the “almost” full moon appear each night!

And WOW! The views!!! Hard to explain, so you’ll need to see it for yourself… beautiful!

So as we begin our return to reality and the crazy we live in 2021, we can’t thank Jace and Mackenzie enough for allowing us to escape for a few days and just enjoy life… island life!
We shared our taste in food/drink as well as our taste in music with each other and learned a lot!

We hope our hosts enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed theirs. Hopefully they can find their own getaway to Kentucky so we can return the hospitality. Either way, we are grateful and we will remember this trip to these islands forever!´
Turtles and More
We dreamed of clear waters and turtles... it was everything we wanted and more! Jace and Mackenzie found great coves, made great food and drinks (ask for the cucumber marg!) and were masters at rumikub. We had an amazing family trip. We hope to be back soon! Thanks for everything.
Great Week Above and Below The Water
An amazing week! Beautiful sails, sunsets, soiling and cocktails. Jace and Mackenzie were wonderful hosts - we were relaxed and enjoyed wonderful food, games and conversation. You guys are awesome!


A great week above and below the water. Jace was a great dive partner and Mackenzie had amazing meals! A week in paradise.


After a year of longing to go somewhere (anywhere) it turns out we chose the perfect vacation. Jace and Mackenzie made everything fantastic. The meals , the cocktails, the games and sun. Mackenzie makes a perfect margarita!
Kicking off the trip with a birthday cake for Alice was a love and beyond! Can´t wait to come back!
Beautiful People, Beautiful Place
We have had and an incredible week aboard Tortuga. This was our third and hands down the best experience yet in the Virgin Islands thanks to Jace and Mackenzie. They provided delicious meals, drinks, sunsets, hikes, diving excursions, and conversation.

Words cannot express how grateful we are for this beautiful week! Jace certified our 12 year old to dive and showed us some incredible underwater wonders along the way. Between dives we had some lovely sails, fun tours on the sub wing, spike ball contests, snorkeled with turtles, hiked pretty view points, floated with drinks, paddle boarded and ate like kings.

Mackenzie catered to our preferences and prepared delicious meals. Some favorites included tuna poke bowl, shrimp ceviche, eggs benedict, beet hummus and key lime pie. She also makes a delicious margarita!

Jace and Mackenzie also made it possible for us to meet up with friends several times along the way. We met several other families at Lime Out and anchored along the corner for the kids to mix it up with some water sports and the adults to enjoy sundown. They made it possible for us to meet up with others for beach games, cocktails on each other boats and dinner at Lavango.

We enjoyed every minute with these beautiful people and this beautiful place!
So Impressed!
We have had a wonderful time aboard! Captain Jace and First Mate Mackenzie have been the most wonderful hosts. So good with our kiddos. The food and drinks have been top notch. We are so impressed with their knowledge and expertise. This vacation has been a welcome relief to the daily stress of life. Thank you!!

One of Our Best Vacations Ever!
One of our best vacations ever! Everything was perfect. The boat, the locations, the weather, the food the snorkeling, subs all were amazing. Jace and Mackenzie were the greatest hosts and made this all possible. They were a terrific team and went above and beyond to make sure we had fun every day.

Jace was an excellent dive instructor and we had a great time exploring the reefs (finding different kinds of fish, turtles, eels, sharks, etc) We are excited to be scuba certified. Jace also was a great subbing driver :)

Mackenzie always made us feel welcome, and we loved all of our meals, snacks and cocktails. She made everything seem seamless, which made the vacation carefree.

This is a vacation that we will never forget. WE loved getting to know Jace and Mackenzie. We hope to sail with them again in the future!
Lots Of Memories Made
What an amazing week on Tortuga! Jace and Mackenzie were a dynamic duo! They really were so attentive to every need and were so gracious and the BEST hosts we could ask for! Jace was an amazing and encouraging scuba MASTER diver. We really enjoyed our Cartanza wreck dive were out favorites and we got to see a turtle! Mackenzie is a natural host and cook. She made us some amazing meals, tasty and presented beautifully every night. Amazing sunsets every night, great cocktails, always the perfect little coves to anchor for the night. All the things we will remember - lots of memories made abroad this week.
