In 2017, Paul and Alexa unknowingly began an adventure of a lifetime when they met working for Broadreach as a sailing instructor and scuba diving instructor respectively. During that summer season, they sailed up and down the Southern Caribbean leading groups of 13-17 years olds from all around the world. When parting ways after that summer, they knew somehow it was fate that they would come together again somewhere in the Caribbean. Since then, the couple relocated to Bequia running sailing charters on their own yacht and freelancing for various charter companies in the region.
Captain Paul was born in the UK but was raised all over the globe. From living in South Korea to the Devon countryside, his fascination with travel and other cultures began quite early on. When his family settled in Brixham, Paul and his father bonded through sailing. Soon that hobby became a passion and that passion became a career. In 2015, Paul broke free of his mundane English lifestyle and sailed across the Atlantic after answering an advert in the newspaper. With a group of three others, he sailed from the Canary Islands and landed in the Southern Caribbean. After exploring each of the diverse islands, Paul made Bequia his home where he captained numerous yachts from a classic 100ft wooden schooner to posh motor yachts (and his own catamaran Cataja). In his spare time, Paul volunteered for the Bequia Junior Sailors which encouraged young people to expand their knowledge and skills within the historical sailing community in the Grenadines. In 2019, Paul transitioned to freelance and captained a variety of boats throughout the Caribbean islands. Prior to his journey in the sailing world, Paul climbed the hospitality ladder. He worked in a variety of hotels, bars, and restaurants which eventually earned him a general manager role for several years in the UK.
Chef Lexy was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York but as an island girl at heart making annual trips to the Caribbean as a child, the sea has always felt like home. While living in New York City, Lexy had a career in event planning and marketing which she continued when she relocated to St. Vincent & the Grenadines working for the Bequia Beach Hotel. After a year behind the desk and the sea right outside her office door, Lexy quit her 9-5 to pursue her career as a yoga instructor and started her own company, Wild Thing Wellness. Alongside her yoga teaching career, Lexy acted as first mate & chef aboard, Cataja and freelancing with Paul on multi-day charters throughout the Southern Caribbean. As your chef, Lexy's tailored menus reflect her passion for creating meals that are healthy, fresh, and delicious. “Coming from a multicultural household my understanding of food has always been interlinked with company. So I’m so excited to prepare delicious food for guests to enjoy as they spend quality time together in some of the most beautiful cruising destinations in the world.” Each dish fuses luscious local flavors with global inspiration, and are truly prepared with love. Some of the best memories are shared around a table with good wine, good food, and good company and Lexy is excited to curate those memories for you!
As innate adventurers and people-people, Paul and Lexy's passions for travel and hospitality come together magically through the yachting industry. The pair have made the Caribbean their home for the past few years and they are so excited to share all their hidden gems during your time together. “We really put in the effort to make all our guests feel like family while they’re aboard they’re home away from home. Through sharing our love for food, sailing, island exploring, and even giving the little ones a turn on the helm, we create a high-end atmosphere that is also authentic and true to us so our guests truly enjoy a slice of paradise aboard Felicia!”
We had a lovely week on Felicia, sailing around St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John. The boat was very spacious and had everything we could want in the way of comforts and water toys. Paul and Alexa did a wonderful job charting our itinerary, finding beautiful locations for us to visit, and generally being very hospitable. Alexa’s cooking was terrific, and the meals generally great.

We had dangerously high expectations for our trip on the Felicia, but I’m glad to say the week far exceeded our best hopes. We spotted Felicia in the bay the day before we boarded her which was exciting and she looked amazing as we boarded her. There is little more exciting than being aboard her doing 13.5 knots as you dart between the islands
Paul and Alexa were the perfect hosts Paul has abundant energy and is an excellent skipper- very confident and professional. He’s also a superb host which is an impressive combination. He knows the boat, the waters, the islands and the locals and made sure everyday was fulfilling He’s also a very attentive bartender
He is superbly complemented by his ever smiling Alexa If there is a better chef in the Caribbean I’d be surprised Her range of cuisine was amazing and nothing was impossible!
The Felicia was an excellent way to see the islands Whether it was day trips to beaches, swimming, lunch or dinner, each day was an experience. Sparrow’s beach club on Union Island was a great afternoon with a lot of cocktails and lobster
Paul and Alexa, many thanks We shall be back
Dear Alexa and Paul,
We had the most wonderful time with you on the Felicia. I was always amazed how you kept your calm - with coping with us old folks!! Getting us on shore - and back on board.
I loved watching the sails go up. So we did the real sailing - cutting the engines - it was awesome!
Alexa is SO the best cook on the high seas. And Paul was such a kind, courteous, and helpful skipper. The best really!!!
We couldn’t of asked for more - I seriously recommend them.
With many thanks,
Bryan & Sara
‘What a great photo, sums it up perfectly - a happy group at the end of a lovely holiday! Thank you both for everything you did for us all. It was a blissful experience being on Felicia - you both have a wonderful ability to understand the varied needs of all your guests and accommodate them all to make a very special experience for the whole group. The sailing was exhilarating (particularly the last day’s sail back from Canouan!), Lexy’s cooking was exquisite. … and the Rum punches always arrived without fail just at the right moment!
It was just the most fabulous week- thank you both very much indeed.
Should you ever make it to Scotland a very warm welcome awaits you!’
With love from us both

Paul was the captain of Motor Yacht STAR OF THE SEA during some of the period that we represented the yacht on Yachtfolio and CYA. We worked closely on promoting the yacht and especially before and during the charters. Rarely I have worked with such an enthusiastic, friendly and helpful captain. His team respected and appreciated him, the yacht was immaculately kept, his knowledge of the area was fantastic, he was eager to share it with us, and the clients absolutely loved him. Please see the last report from a broker about a very successful New Year’s charter:
Our charter on Star of the Sea has ended, as you know. All went extremely well and my client is really happy about his vacation.
I must say Paul made it happen. It has been a tremendous pleasure to work with him he was always on the top of everything, calm, fast, spontaneous with an amazing attitude, I would love to recommend him and the yacht anytime you need, to any broker you want.
Many thanks again for recommending to me the yacht, and assuring me in advance the crew was phenomenal.
I look forward to working with you again very soon !!
Paul, huge Bravo for everything you did for the guests and for the amazing Captain you are. We need more like you.
Paul is trustworthy and an ideal captain to work with. I could not recommend him more highly and I look forward to working with Paul again in the future.
I would be very happy to confirm this recommendation verbally too.
Paul and Alexa were just fantastic and we had an amazing time from start to finish. The boat was pristine and a perfect fit for us. The food was excellent. Paul and Alexa were so knowledgeable, incredibly kind and patient with our kids, and very responsive to everything we needed.

We had the pleasure to sail with Alexa and Paul for a week around a cluster of Caribbean islands called the Grenadines. Before the charter Paul called us and we started to put together our dream trip. As they have lived in the Caribbean for many years they were able to guide our family through the process and set the stage for a very exciting trip for my husbands 40th birthday.
They were delightful to sail with. Fun but relaxed and consistently working hard to make sure we got everything we wished for. Alexa’s food was sensational, happily catering for our young children while also putting on delicious food for my husband and myself later in the evening.
As they have been living in the area they knew all the best spots. Were able to advise us on some terrific restaurants on our nights out and introduce us to some of their friends at some idyllic locations.
We were blown away and have made sure to tell all our friends of what a fantastic family holiday we had.
We will definitely be keeping in touch with Alexa and Paul and are already planning our next adventure away hopefully sooner rather than later.
We had the amazing opportunity to spend some time in Tobago Cays with Paul and Alexa and it was our best charter trip ever! The boat was spacious, well organized and clean! Our hosts were very professional and welcoming, and they made sure we were happy during the whole trip! They organized some excellent meals from breakfast, lunch to dinner and we had an amazing experience and are looking forward to the next one with them!
