Cyrus Dietz (Captain/Chef), Kate Giebink (Captain/Chef) and Cocoa Salty Paws (Furry Fun Manager)
USCG Captain, PADI/SSI Certified Divemaster and master of baked goodies as well as a mighty fine cocktail, Cyrus started his love for sailing and deep-sea fishing with his father off the coasts of Cape May, New Jersey. That launched a love of all things outdoors – and he has the merit badges to prove it. His keen eye for planning has won him many spectacular experiences. A background in engineering adds to his ability to fit the tool to any job, always prepared with just the right gear for the next adventure.
USCG Captain, PADI/SSI Certified Divemaster and master of crafting a fresh fusion of flavors, Kate started sailing at the ripe age of 4 and she’s been on the wind ever since. Her first visit to the Caribbean was with her father, Dr. Scott Giebink, spending months at a hospital in Haiti helping children. The immersion in the warm culture led to her passion for crafting many more global treks and inspired her love for experimenting with global cuisine. Kate draws from a background in music, design and cuisine to fine tune the ambiance that completes each moment aboard CruiseNautic. And what goes better with the stars then the soft strum of guitar in a live moonlit serenade.
Cyrus & Kate’s love for adventure has led them in many years of whitewater rafting, canyoneering,
4-wheeling, sailing and more. Together, they completed the Bob Marshall Wilderness Open, covering 100 miles of Grizzly-bear-infested Montana forests on foot and packraft. Not only did they survive, they stayed together to take the adventure on to a new frontier. They embarked on an Atlantic crossing with their brand-new Lagoon 42, exploring France, Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands then landing in their new home seas of the Eastern Caribbean Islands. From the US and British Virgin Islands all the way South to Grenada and The Grenadines, their “backyard view” is in constant rotation as they explore all the magic these islands offer. This is where you come in. We’d love to have you aboard and share all the hidden treasures of the Caribbean as we sail out of the ordinary.
Our third mate, Cocoa Salty Paws. Let’s just say it was crew at first sight. Hailing from Grenada, Cocoa is a Grenadian Pot Hound who has been raised on catamarans since she was 5 days old. She hangs outside, in the salon and the crew stateroom. She never enters the guest staterooms or the port side hull. Cocoa is the perfect addition to our crew. She is entertaining, loyal and always has a full body wag ready to greet you.
