Capt. Richard Darling
Captain Richard hails from a small town in upstate New York near the Lake Ontario shoreline where he learned absolutely nothing about sailing! That is until he spent some college years in Daytona, then went back to NY and was fortunate enough to enter the racing scene where he purchased his own sailboat and hasn’t stopped sailing since. In 2003, Richard moved to the Virgin Islands and acquired his USCG Master’s License. Since then, he has worked in the charter industry as Captain or Engineer on various sailing and motor yachts up to 160 feet.
Calling St. Thomas home for more than 15 years. Richard has sailed thousands of miles through the islands and beyond, and he loves sharing some of the best kept secret anchorages and dive locations along the way along with his knowledge of the stars under the beautiful Caribbean night skies.
Chef Suzanne Carter
Chef Suzanne hails from Philadelphia, PA where she studied under some of the best Italian cooks on the east side. She learned at an early age that perfectly blended herbs and spices will bring your dish to the next level. Her family moved to St. Petersburg, FL where her eyes were immediately drawn to the sea. Through the years her need to be in the islands never waned nor did her desire to create mouth watering meals. Her dishes are best described as elegantly simplistic. A wide range of culinary styles beautifully blended with fresh local ingredients, a superb mixture of herbs and spices, and sprinkled with a pinch of Mama’s love will have you begging for seconds. But trust me, you are going to want to save room for dessert!
