Rob and Belinda have been a couple for thirty years and have spent a large part of that time working together as a team.

They have a passion for world travel and adventure, and have the unforgettable stories to accompany their many unique life experiences. They both share a love of food and entertaining and will happily go the extra mile to accommodate guests.

Together, Rob and Belinda have vast experience on the ocean, their “happy place” as Rob refers to it. They spent four years cruising the world on their own catamaran with their two children and are anxiously awaiting their return to the sea where they can again set sail on Belle Vie.

CAPTAIN
Rob Bentley

Born in South Africa and growing up on the East coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, Rob has been a “water boy” his whole life. He is an accomplished sailor with over 30,000 sea miles under his belt on a range of vessels. This was achieved through skippering yachts and cruising along the African coast. Together with his family, he also spent four years cruising the East Coast of Africa, Indian Ocean, SE Asia, Indonesia, and Australia.

Rob has a passion for the ocean, and loves water sports. He is a qualified life saver, advanced diver and fisherman with a particular passion for salt water fly-fishing. He loves to go out and hopefully return with something delicious to toss on the BBQ. Mountaineering is Rob's other passion and he has hours of adventures on mountains spanning the globe.


When Rob is not out skippering and entertaining, you will see him working in the galley with Belinda. Cocktails and the BBQ are part of Rob’s regime, and he knows the perfect story to tell while you enjoy them!

CHEF
Belinda Bentley

Born and raised outside of Durban, South Africa Belinda has spent her life close to the sea, camping, swimming, scuba diving and fishing as well as hiking and climbing the inland Drakensberg mountains. She is a ‘people’s person’ and in addition to her culinary training, is also trained as a professional nurse, specializing in maternity.

Belinda is a passionate cook who has been influenced by travel and time spent in many different countries. She is particularly fond of Asian cuisine, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam, but also enjoys the Indian and Mediterranean influences. She loves to cook the ‘catch of the day’ as provided by Rob and pair it with local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. She enjoys bright and bold flavors, especially citrus notes which do well to compliment the Caribbean climate.

Waking up to fresh morning coffee and watching the sun set with drinks and appetizers are the absolute essence of life aboard and she can’t wait to welcome you!
