The Crew

About Chelsea.

Chelsea will be the one grinding through every last detail of your trip- making sure it is the best possible experience.  Technically the First Mate of Nai’a, she will be assisting the captain with sailing, cooking all the scrumptious food, mixing the drinks, chauffeuring guests and making sure everyone is as comfortable and happy as possible.  If you need a guide to a waterfall, she’ll gladly assist and photograph it, if you want to venture on your own, she’ll hand you a water.  The crew’s presence is how you want it.

Chelsea’s forte revolves around places to hike, swim, dance and eat. She has the International Yacht Training STCW10 certification (safety training, fire fighting, first aid, CPR, personal survival, personal safety and social responsibility.)

(His specs: Small powerboat and RIB master commercial certificate with Vhf license.  RYA day skipper non-tidal for sail and powerboats up to 18 meters. IYT STCW10: safety training, fire fighting, first aid, CPR, personal survival, personal safety and social responsibility.)

About Margo.

Born in the dumps, raised in the shelter… she makes the perfect pirate pup.  Margo is smart, sweet, alert and honestly, a decent surfer.  Every day is better with her endless love and greetings.  Crossing the Atlantic?  No problem.  Crossing paths with a chihuahua? Mmm… maybe we take a different route.
