Owners and crew

 Captain Pat and Staci Kosick have lived and sailed in the Caribbean for many years and know the Islands as their own personal playground.  They totally restored a classic Chris Craft sailing yacht, owned and operated a successful day sail business out of St. Thomas for25 years and have a large following of happy guests.  They have always maintained an outstanding reputation on Trip Advisor.

 Captain Pat began in the cold weather of Wisconsin and as soon as he was old enough, he jumped on a ship joining the US Coast Guard in the Great Lakes.  Once he was free he began heading south.  His boating skills are exemplary and he is a well-respected captain in the Caribbean as well as being known as a true Caribbean storyteller!

 Some of his accomplishments include search and rescue, teaching boat safety to law enforcement agencies, as well as inspections of small crafts.  He worked on private yachts and managed charter boat companies.  He is a true Caribbean Captain  through and through. 

Staci is in charge of your culinary preferences and does an outstanding job!  She has studied throughout Europe and loves to please guests with fresh ingredients that are well prepared. She does all the book work as well.
