Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye (Bree) have each spent years running yacht charters all around the world from Southeast Asia to the Mediterranean. Now that they’ve joined forces together, they’re thrilled to welcome you aboard their new floating home in the Caribbean, Barefeet Retreat!
Jenn, a Texas native, has been sailing and instructing others on the sea since ‘09 when she taught dinghy & keelboat sailing at California State University, Long Beach. She has a strong passion for the ocean and fell in love with diving right here in the Virgin Islands. She took a brief hiatus from sailing on the water, to go below it working as a dive instructor. As Barefeet Retreat’s Captain & Dive Instructor, Jenn is thrilled to share her fascination of the sea with guests, always offering the most incredible views, both above and below the waterline.
Bree, our Florida gal, has a lifetime of passionate hosting experience and has always been a natural in the kitchen. After 9 years working in advertising strategy, Bree pivoted from her NYC desk job in ’17 & found new bliss working as a chef on the sea. She’s spent the last 4 years hosting charters at sea, programming wellness retreats on land, and sharing her skills as a host instructor for Quarterdeck’s host & skipper academy in Croatia. Entertaining is Bree’s forte and she finds it such a privilege to nourish her guests with mindfully curated meal plans using only the freshest and most wholesome ingredients.
Together, Jenn & Bree foster an incredible sense of hospitality and adventure on their charters. From the moment you step onto the yacht, you’re greeted with warmth and positivity. In addition to being partners in business, Jenn and Abrye are dear friends and a truly outstanding team. Clients have commented that they’re both an ideal mix of professional competence and outgoing fun. Jenn’s effortless humor paired with Bree’s natural maternal instinct will ensure that you’re smiling and satiated through the full duration of your yacht holiday.
