James grew up on the coast of southwest UK which sparked a love of the sea, adventures and being active. After graduating from Loughborough University Business School, James worked as a trader in London.

He’s excited to take you to the most incredible spots in the Caribbean on your charter. James is more than happy to teach guests anything they want to know about boating alongside sharing his passion for the sea. James also enjoys keeping active so can show you his favorite trails and hiking paths if that’s your thing too. He’ll then make you your favorite cocktail to accompany an amazing sunset, so whatever charter you’re after, he's got you covered.

Growing up, Julia's family got her involved with cooking at a very young age. She eagerly and naturally continued to cook and work in various Parisian restaurants while studying fine arts and photography.

Julia finds her cooking to be a form of art that she continues to successfully develop and explore. She loves preparing fresh and healthy dishes and always tries to incorporate local delicacies from the current destination.

This will by Julia's 5th year in the industry working as a chef in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. She is passionate about her work and is eager to share her delectable creations with her guests.


Exceeded Expectations
Our charter exceeded our expectations in every area - I had a list of places and I wanted to see and things I wanted to do and Captain James made sure every box was checked! He was professional, hospitable, and fun to be around! In addition, Chef Julia created the most amazing meals every single day! The food was outstanding - so much so we cancelled some reservations and opted to eat on the boat instead because her meals were DIVINE! Our boat was beautiful and spacious. We could not have asked for anything more!

Great job James and Julia. Thank you, Raul
Bucket List Items
This was a bucket list for us. We expected it to be fun but it totally was absolutely a wonderful and extremely awesome trip. Our captain James and Chef Julia made it just perfect. They were always attentive and constantly making sure we had everything we needed. The food was delicious and over the top beautiful. James was the best captain ever. If you decide to take a trip of a lifetime please ask for James and Julia and by all means do it with Marine Max. No hidden charges and we were told upfront how everything would be. I can’t brag enough on this beautiful vessel and wonderful team. James and Julia … you are the best out there! Lots of laughs and fun.
Trip of a lifetime!
We completed a trip of a lifetime on March 3, 2024. We rented an Aquila 545 from Marine Max complete with Captain James & Chef Julia and toured the BVI’s. I can’t express how special this bucket list trip was. The food was amazing and Chef Julia just raised the bar everyday of our trip. We wanted for nothing and both crew members made this trip special for all 6 of us. The boat was the perfect size for 6 people and Captain James was amazing as well. I highly recommend booking a charter with the two of them. You won’t be disappointed and to us this was a 10 star review!! 😎
