Jordan found himself drawn to the water and the islands from a young age.
He grew up in Dallas, TX as landlocked as can be, but he would daydream of the sun and the clear turquoise seas of the Caribbean. He made his way to the islands finally when he was 21 planning to just pass through for a year on to Prague; but the vibes, salt, and beaches grabbed his soul. He quickly fell into the boating industry shortly after moving and has loved it. 1 year turned to 2, and 2 to 7. Jordan cultivated some interesting island hobbies which include spearfishing, free-diving, and snorkeling.
In his off-time Jordan loves traveling as it is a strong passion of his and every chance he gets he jumps on a plane to discover unique cuisine, culture, sights and experiences and has explored 16 countries so far and counting.
Jordan is a USCG Licensed Captain with a sailing endorsement and STCW 95. As a day charter captain and a term charter Captain in the Virgin Islands, he has discovered the local hotspots and secret beaches he would love to share with you. Jordan’s vibrant personality and his eagerness to make sure everyone has a life changing experience is what sets him apart.
As a Montana native from a small skiing town in the Rockies, Alesha has always felt the need to travel the world. After graduating college she embraced her calling and chose a location out of a hat, bringing her to the pristine shores of St.Thomas USVI. It was in the Caribbean where Alesha found her love for working on the water where she excelled as a free diver, chef, mate, and captain. She has spent over five years catering her cuisine to showcase local island flavors while incorporating some of her Montana roots with comfort foods and home made classics. Her Caribbean meets the mountains fusion has a unique flair that’s sure to please. You’ll usually find Alesha diving for dinner, or begging you to come snorkel with her. This mermaid loves to share the ocean, and puts her heart into every dish for your enjoyment
