Our group of 8 proved to be no challenge for Tanya even though our group coordinator confirmed only 6 passengers for our charter. Tanya managed to prepare delicious meals for 8 with provisions for 6 every day without ever disappointing us. From airy, velvety scrambled eggs to perfectly crisp bacon and fresh poke bowls to scrumptious sweets — we all wanted to take Tanya home with us. Not only were the meals amazing, they were plated beautifully and not a minute later than when expected. What’s more, she aided the captain in mooring and prepping our group’s trips to land amongst other things, proving she is an expert multitasker. Towards the end our charter when she was done artfully preparing our meals and leaving the galley in pristine conditions, we had an opportunity to engage with her more than we had throughout the trip and confirmed what we already knew: Tanya is a sweet, talented, adventure seeker who loves exploring as much as we do which made it extra special. She is an asset on any vessel. As is the Captain we were fortunate to have: Jacob Albano.
Family Adventure Out Of This World
Took our family on our 1st charter and it was a blast. Learning to paddleboard (great video's), diving & snorkeling, great fun. There was an underwater snorkeling spot Capt Jake took us to and it was unbelievable. After long days in the ocean we enjoyed evenings in the bean bag chairs watching the sunsets with a well made sun downer. Chef's food was tasty and very well presented with a solid nod to seafood and italian cuisine which we love! Thanks for a fantastic week!
Great 2 Weeks!
We just got off after a 2 week charter and wow, it was fantastic! Capt Jake knew all of the best diving/snorkeling spots and even helped us learn to sail abit. Chef was amazing, food was outstanding - we are very picky eaters (whole foods kind of people) and he provisioned and prepared at an exceptionally high level. Yacht was great, loved the floating bean bag chairs and the underwater scooters which allowed for extended snorkeling/exploring (they last over an hour :) ) Thanks Capt, Chef & 1st mate, had a great time!"
