Robert was born and raised in Australia, and for as long as he can remember, he has alwavs had a passion for adventure. Which the majority of the time, revolved around water; fishing, boating, snorkeling, wakeboarding, jet skiing. If it involved water, he was all about it!
After graduating with a degree in International Business he followed suite into a corporate job, only to realize that just wasn't for him. He took a chance to travel the world, which opened his eyes and in fact led him to boats.

Thank you for making this vacation so special for us and especially for creating a loving and beautiful space for us to heal, cry, and laugh again. You will always have a special place in our hearts and in our memories. Remember... California, Utah, and Florida have an open invitation to come and visit. Thanks again!

Thank you for embracing us with your hearts and your professionalism. Thank you for a great trip! You're the best!
Thank you for a wonderful week! You two are the best!
Tina & Matea,
This was our 4th sailing trip and without question, it was the BEST! And the reason it was the best is mostly because of your two! Not only are you both incredible at your jobs, but you are also so much fun!! You made us feel like family from day one.
Tina - This was more sailing that we have ever done on our other sailboat trips and you made it look effortless. What a PRO!
Matea - Your cooking and creativity in your meals is beyond compare. Looking at all the pictures of your amazing meals will make me hungry and long for your cooking.
We cannot thank you enough for such a perfect week on your traveling palaces, yes palaces because we all felt like kings and queens 24 seven. You have the patience of saints and the wit to keep conversations always lively. Everything and everyday was organized yet flexible to accommodate the wishes of 11 passengers. We all felt at home, and I strive to be a better cook after seeing all the joy you brought each and every meal! You coordinated meals and activities between two boatloads of people effortlessly. I’m not sure how you did it, but you even kept Larry in line. I think I can speak for us all when I say we truly enjoyed getting to know you all and can only hope we do this again someday. XoXo

P.S Great bed linens- thank you!
Tina & Matea,
Thank you for making this trip one in a million. From the moment we walked on the boat, you’re welcomed us with open arms, and we couldn’t have dreamed of a better crew to lead us on this adventure. You were so kind, creative, accommodating, funny, joyful plus truly the most fun part of our trip. It was such a gift to be able to experience the British virgin islands under your guidance. We are also blessed to have had such a perfect Christmas and there aren’t enough words to thank you for all you did this week. We will miss you dearly and cannot wait to get back on another trip with you soon. We love you, thank you!!!

Wow, what an incredible week sailing over Thanksgiving! The two of you made the week so special for all of us that we will never forget it. It has been so fun getting to know the two of you, hearing about your journey of how you got here and spending time with you. Thank you for being so adaptable to all the things each person in our group liked/didn’t like, and for every bit of detail you provided to make things special. Some of my top memories are watching the World Cup (England versus USA) together, Soggy, Dollar, Tina and Sarah teaching me to wakeboard. Jason and I going out and using the sub wing with Tina, our lobster dinners, movie night, and special thanksgiving feast Tia put together for us where we all shared what we were thankful for. You two are the best and we hope you can visit us in New Orleans/Colorado. Thank you again for everything and we hope you have a wonderful season ahead!

Tina and Shawn were incredible. It made out cruise!
Did you like the area you chartered in?
Our vacation was beyond amazing!! Thank you!! Richard and I had not been on a vacation since 2020 with COVID took over. Your knowledge, attention to detail and overall engaging and friendly demeanor made this vacation extra special. You are PHENOMENAL!!
You made Susan, Richard and I feel so special. We needed to disconnect and lose ourselves in this most beautiful BVI and so we did because of you!! The new places you took us to, the guided tours, the great food, the time we spent with you, and my surprise birthday celebration are unforgettable memories we will treasure always!
We also loved all your toys - full face masks, underwater Gopro, paddle boards, scooters, and the that's what she said card game... lol!
We can't wait to visit the Rikija Lounde at the Kent Hotel with you and show you some fun places in Miami when you visit. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon and experiencing a new adventure (Croatia) as you are indeed the Captain of choice. We love you Captain Tina!! Thank you!! Till we meet again soon!
Wow. Just wow!
I knew I would have a good time just because I was with Richard and Ann, but... This trip goes in my top 5 and I am ready to do it again with the same crew! Painkillers, conch, lobster, best of Anegada, was the best of the best! You all were more than we expected. Skipper, Captain, Nurse, Chef, Dishwasher, Crew, Plumber, Woman - very professional, but lovely person with a big heart. I applaud you and you are adored by all of us. Be strong girlfriend! Joyed meeting joy, cherish good friends! We are so luck to have met you all and thank you for helping us to celebrate birthdays that were very special. You are family now. Most of all know that life is short, enjoy all the moments, especially good people. Peace, health, and happiness!
Thank you for such an amazing trip! You were/all the best captain. If you are ever in DC/Michigan, please give us a call so we have a chance to show you a great time! This was an unforgettable trip! I will definitely be practicing my wake boarding skills/jumping in case we ever get the chance to go with you again:) Every stop was amazing! The only thing that I would change is the amount of sunscreen I used - ROASTED! Thank you again for everything. Love you!
PS - We are better at Jenga than Corey and T.Dog
A really amazing, once in a lifetime experience. Sleeping under the stars, sailing under the sun, and snorkeling under the water. A wonderful and fun filled trip. This was the perfect combo of relaxation and excitement. Absolutely lovely!
Wow! What a trip to remember indeed! Thanks to the crew we not only saw exquisite fish, coral, FLAMINGOS, swam with turtles and had our very own corona island moment, BUT we ate like kinds, never had to want for anything and had all the sports gear to play in the water. Not to mention, the crew were QUEEENS at limbo! Thank for for a very memorable trip, we drank all the red wine and we appreciate you both going above and beyond.

What a wonderful trip!!!
Serenity is the best boat I saw all week during our arrival in the bays. It is very comfortable, and the cabins are excellent. The variety and quality of arrival toys are amazing. Tina is an excellent hostess, she is always attentive and willing to cover all the requirements of her guests. In addition, we feel very protected by her dedications to trying to take care of the safety of all of us and is always ready to please us. The chef is a very sweet person and the meals very good, worthy of a 5-star restaurant. She was always trying to please us with her culinary treats.
Thanks to the crew, we are trying to repeat this trip next year if they are still the crew on this boat. Thank you very much, this has been an unforgettable week!
