Together, they make an excellent team - relaxed and hospitable, adventurous, yet responsible. Come aboard where they are always willing and ready to share their love of water sports, passion for good cooking (and great food in general) and endless fun aquatic adventures. Join them and get ready to walk away with some amazing stories to share and unforgettable memories within nature's little secret.
Born and raised on the western cape of South Africa, Theunis started sailing with his father at a young age and immediately fell in love with the ocean. The son of a Navy man, his childhood weekends were filled with regattas, fishing tournaments and fixing up their family boat. He set sail when he was just 18 and has since gained experience on many different vessels from motor yachts, sailing yachts, racing yachts and even tall ships. He's sailed all around the world from his birthplace in South Africa, the sensational Seychelles to the cold shores of Canada, the sunny Caribbean, tropical Thailand and the mythical Mediterranean islands.
Growing up on the ocean, naturally Theunis (T) developed a passion for all types of water sports. As a watersports coordinator and certified PADI Dive Master/Instructor Theunis leads his guests through endless aquatic adventures with patience and unparalleled ease. Theunis prides himself on offering an unforgettable oceanic experience. He strives to educate and foster a deeper ocean connection specifically tailored to each and every guest.
Rebecca grew up in the suburbs of Chicago right in the heart of the Midwest. She's a University of Illinois Business School grad with an extensive background in marketing and customer service in areas of Hospitality and Food Marketing.
Growing up in the Chicago food scene, Rebecca was a foodie by nature. Her eclectic pallet along with a passion for traveling led to the inspiration of most of her dishes. From the taste of American Home Comfort Food to Mexican Street Fares, Spanish Tapas and French inspired cooking. With a focus on fresh, local and sustainable products her dishes are sure to please and are specifically catered to your preferences.
