MEET YOUR CREW:
Heiko, born and raised in Germany, is an RYA Yachtmaster Offshore. 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 a Freediving Instructor and PADI Divemaster. 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 in the financial services industry in New York and Hong Kong. A trip to Australia in 2005 changed her life - she learned to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef and fell completely in love with scuba 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 in 2009. She has worked in Thailand, Hawaii and Indonesia for a over decade in nearly every facet of the scuba diving industry, from guiding and instructing to dive center and resort management to working on a liveaboard. She loves life in the tropics, surrounded by water, nature and wildlife and thrives on sharing her passions with her guests.
Heiko and Rebecca obtained their RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualifications together in Gibraltar in 2020, 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. Rebecca will take you on a culinary tour around the world, creating fresh, flavorful dishes inspired by her multi-cultural background as well as her many years of travel and living in different countries, while Heiko’s swoon-worthy desserts will surely satisfy your sweet tooth. They are happy to cater to a variety of dietary requirements and in particular, specialize in vegetarian and vegan cuisine.
Heiko and Rebecca are back for their third charter season in the Virgin Islands after two very successful seasons running a total of 40 charters. This dynamic couple is excited to be on Tedavi for 2022/23 and look forward to welcoming you onboard, showing you the wonders of the Virgin Islands and creating memories to last a lifetime!

Perfect charter - You are both so kind to accommodate our every request!
Your hospitality is so appreciated. We enjoyed getting to know you and to hear your life stories. We have been in awe of your ability and expertise in the kitchen, at the helm, and all over the sailboat and ashore. One image I will never forget is Rebecca in warrior pose, positioned to nab a mooring ball. You are both so kind to accommodate our every request and handle our foibles with grace. As you conclude your maiden voyage on Tedavi, we wish you a 2023 on this gorgeous boat, a year ahead filled with discovery, adventure, good health, safe travels, deep dives into each other eyes.
AWESOME trip! The food made this trip fantastic!
AWESOME trip! Heiko was very patient with all the questions about sailing, diving and the reef. I enjoyed you sharing your knowledge and I also enjoyed eating all of the fantastic meals Rebecca made. Food can make or break a vacation for sure. This food made this trip for sure. Thanks for making this family trip of ours so fun, tasty and special.
What an amazing trip!
We didn't quite know what to expect and both of you exceeded our wildest dreams about a boat trip vacation! From the amazing breakfasts to desserts.. the meals were outstanding. You really need to assemble a "Rebecca Cook Book. The daytime adventures with Heiko were always memorable. He was always so patient and anticipated everything we all needed. We can't thank you enough for making this an amazing family vacation!
Heiko and Rebecca were unbelievable! From the first moment we stepped on board we felt 100% comfortable and relaxed. The accommodations were perfect and immaculate (The entire trip!) The food and drinks were exactly what you would want to eat on a tropical vacation. Heiko and Rebecca knew exactly what we wanted before we knew what we wanted. Heiko made us so comfortable in the ocean and gave us a five star snorkeling experience (MULTIPLE TIMES)
Rebecca's food was INSANELY delicious and was perfectly complimented with heinous cocktails/desserts. We will truly remember this vacation forever. THANK YOU!
The Best Vacation We have Ever Gone On!
As the father and planner of our family vacations, it is always difficult to plan a trip that all four kids will love. We have been all over North America together and my wife and kids all say that THIS was the best vacation we have gone on.
On this trip we got to experience the Virgin Islands. This is experience was because of Heiko and Rebecca. My kids think that Heiko is a super hero. He took us to places in the ocean that were truly amazing. He taught us how to hold our breath for 1.5 minutes and free dive to 25 feet. He even found our lost phone at the bottom of the ocean. He is a real life Aquaman!
In all of our vacations we have never had such awesome eating experience and that was because of Rebecca! Every meal, every snack, every dessert were truly delicious. The whole family is asking if we can do this trip again but only if we can do it with Rebecca and Heiko!
They really made this trip truly special. We all now consider them friends and we WILL see them again.
To say Rebecca and Heiko exceeded expectations is an understatement. A nice boat is nice boat but the crew makes it special. These two are fantastic! They made our family vacation so special from the 50th anniversary banner, cups and welcome champagne to the wonderful meals and snorkel trips. We would do this trip with this crew all over again!
The Best Crew To Have On A Boat!
Heiko and Rebecca are the best crew to have on a boat. Heiko was basically Aquaman and found all the sea creatures for us to see!
Rebecca was the most amazing chef, I looked forward to every meal the entire trip!
The entire trip was amazing from start to finish!
This has been hands down our best family vacation!
From day 1 to day 7 there was so much to see and so much fun had by all. It was amazing to have such a great duo Heiko and Rebecca!
Rebecca had the most amazing meals planned for breakfast, lunch, dinner and appetizers. to make all the member of our family happy with food, is one GREAT accomplishment!
Heiko thank you for all your help (and patience) with our crew. All the pointers on breathing techniques given were so helpful. You were the BEST dive master. All the things we got to see and learn about during our scuba and snorkel dive are unforgettable.
With a family of 6 it is rare that we all agree but without a question this will forever be our FAMILY'S BEST VACATION EVER (until next year and we see you guys again.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this such a memorable bonding family vacation for us.
Attention To Detail Is Second To None!
We had a wonderful time this week and you both played a role in the experience. The information you shared along the journey added a special touch. All of the food was amazing!!
Your thoughtfulness and attention is second to none!
What A Fabulous Vacation!
The attention to detail was impressive. Placemat changes; shampoo and conditioner bottle placement; bed making perfection; everything was thought of!
Our our hosts were incredibly generous with amazing food and fabulous wines.
