Captain Francisco was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Lucky enough to be part of a big family who loved the water he spent his summers exploring every corner of the U.S., Spanish, and British Virgin Islands. Sailing, boating, and snorkeling together are the wonderful experiences that drew him to the water, and he loves sharing those secret spots with guests.
This active lifestyle gave way to a love for surfing, participating in local competitions and traveling abroad representing Puerto Rico. Windsurfing was a natural progression, as was his love of stand up paddle boarding and kitesurfing.
After spending many years enjoying his hobbies on the water, but working as a Sales Executive, Francisco decided to make the change and received his commercial captains license. He began with boat deliveries out of Puerto Rico for multiple companies. Francisco sailed up and down the coast of Puerto Rico, even helping after the devastating hurricanes of 2017. Exploring the waters he grew up sailing on, in this new way gave him a fresh perspective and he knew it was time to truly share his passion with guests.
Sailing on Tres Sueños is a culmination of all the rich experiences Francisco has had. Combining his wide knowledge of the entire Virgin Island chain, his love and experience sailing, and his incredible ability to instruct and encourage watersports from foiling to stand up paddle boards and beyond he is truly the captain to make a charter go from great to amazing.
Chef Elise Esposito
Born and raised in southern New Jersey just outside Philadelphia and Delaware. Elise has a strong Italian background with a love of food, family and travel. Her earliest memories start with cooking with her grandmother. They loved to cook authentic Italian dishes from scratch. Growing up in a large Italian family meant big Sunday dinners were a tradition in our household. This was the start of her love for cooking.
Elise studied Business and Economics in College while continuing traveling and exploring different culinary delights with every venture abroad. She soon moved to New York City to start a business career among the hustle and bustle of city life. She quickly found that her earlier love of travel, exploration of local cuisines, and sailing the blue green waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean kept calling her away.
Before long, she had traveled 35 countries and all throughout the states with some destinations visited several times only to find an intense realization that her heart’s desire was in sharing her sailing and culinary life experiences with others to create a memorable vacation adventure.
With years of knowledge acquired during her travels and with great passion, Elise creates healthy, deep flavored dishes and well-planned combinations prepared with the highest quality ingredients. My cooking style is healthy and pure with great flavor for the palate and prepared the traditional way but served with a modern twist for your enjoyment. Any diets and personal preferences are always welcomed.
Mate Troy Vile
Troy grew up in Philadelphia and spent most of his life traveling. Summers on the East Coast sailing, surfing and fishing; and winters skiing across the US and Europe. His sense of adventure came from his family’s love of traveling. As a child, Troy lived in London and by the time he was 20, he had sailed, skied, surfed, hiked, and fished in over 30 different countries. His most frequented location over the past ten years has been the Virgin Islands which has enabled him to build deep knowledge of the best spots the islands have to offer.
Troy looks forward to sharing his knowledge of watersports including the sport that makes Tres Suenos different from many of the other boats in the Islands, EFoiling. He fell in love with Efoiling the first time he tried it and was surprised by the easy learning curve of this product. Troy will help the passengers aboard Tres Suenos develop the same love for this new sport that he has mastered. Troy is looking forward to meeting you and ensuring you have fun on the water.
