Salty Girl Catamaran Charter
Owner Operated & Sails with 2 US Coast Guard Captains, Ensuring Your Safety and Fun. Our numerous and current reviews assure you of a positive Caribbean adventure.
Although not unheard of, I hold 2 Licenses; earning not only a US Coast Guard Captains license, but also a Commercial Pilot’s, as well. Sailing and flying are in many regards similar. Passenger safety, comfort, and destinations are the focus.
I enlisted in the United States Army after obtaining my Eagle Scout status at age 17. The GI Bill enabled me to pursue my undergraduate degree in Aviation Flight and Management from Southern Illinois University. Both Tresa and I hold Masters Degrees. My career path did not take me flying, however, but to logistics with a wholesale distribution business. It was a three year plan to leave our life on the Canadian boarder in NYS, and transition to the Caribbean. Truly one of the best decisions of our lives!
The $100,000 refit on Salty Girl was mostly done by Tresa and I. If you would like to know more about boat systems on the ocean, just ask, as I will enjoy discussing them with you. The helm station can comfortably sit 3 people, so don't hesitate to come try your hand at the wheel. Interested in listening to music? You can choose the venue from my pre-made playlists or Bluetooth from your own devise. Our 9 speaker Fusion Stereo sounds terrific turned up loud! Please tell us if you are camera shy. I enjoy taking and sharing pics of your party!
I am excited to share my love of the Virgin Islands with you aboard Salty Girl. As a career New York State public education teacher, I know how important family vacations and couples’ retreats are. Let Salty Girl lead you on the perfect escape. Our goal is for you to feel the boat as your private resort from which to reconnect and explore nature. Options include snorkeling, snuba, fishing, kayaking, hiking, binoculars from the boat, or just soaking in the sun. However you choose to customize your day, know that your safety, as well as private time, will be foremost.
Meal time on Salty Girl is special. As the primary cook, I make sure every dish is home-made with an extra dose of love. Years of running an organic farm, feeding our children, and enjoying good food all lead me to the dishes prepared specifically for you and your preferences. Additionally, tasty recipes, from my classes with the Culinary Institute of America non-degree program, are served with local Caribbean favorites. My focus is on light healthy eating to fuel your adventures. I hope you enjoy my boat-grown microgreens! I am honored to have professional chefs and guests request recipes, so don't hesitate to ask!
Philip and I are very proud of the 4 adult children and one son-in-law we share. No grand kids yet!
