Rachel & Rebeka

The Nauti But Nice team, can’t wait to welcome you to the BVI

Captain Rachel has always been happiest when she’s near the water. Her love for the water began in the swimming pool, where she was a competitive swimmer and eventually a coach. Then, with a desire for saltwater and the seas, she began working on boats, achieving her goal of earning her USCG captain’s licence. She is truly passionate about providing an incredible experience that is fun safe, exciting and relaxing.

Having lived in the Virgin Islands since 2017, she has grown a deep love for these islands and the people who live here. She is also a PADI divemaster and loves exploring the underwater landscapes as much as those above water. Having previously run eco boat tours in the USVI, she is quite familiar with teh local flora and fauna and eager to share her passion for the unique and beautiful ecology of the Virgin Islands. Her time and experience in the Virgin Islands has allowed her to find secluded beaches, enthralling bars, and teh friendliest locals. After a charter with Captain Rachel you will feel refreshed, invigorated, and in tune with the waves.

Chef Rebeka’s journey in the hospitality industry began with a degree in Hospitality & Tourism, which led her to work in renowned 5-star hotels in Austria. Fueled by her love for desserts, she dedicated time to work as a baker in a patisserie for a year, honing her skills in crafting exquisite cakes. Being a foodie and always cooking for family & friends, a new opportunity arose when she decided to explore the world of yacht hosting in Croatia, providing her with valuable insights into meeting the specific demands of yacht guests.

As a charter guest, you’ll find a great culinary experience with her as your Chef. Her passion lies in creating delicious meals from scratch, that will leave your taste buds delighted throughout your journey. She also has a positive attitude to accommodate all your dietary requirements, wishes, and cravings, ensuring that every meal is a delightful and personalized experience. What makes the charter experience she provides truly unique is the diverse array of cuisines she brings on board. Each day, you’ll get to savour a blend of flavours from different cultures, allowing you to experience a culinary journey like no other. From exotic spices to comforting classics, every dish is a celebration of global gastronomy, adding an extra layer of excitement to your charter.

Her specialty and most popular dish is her scrumptious and addictive banana bread. This seemingly simple treat is elevated with secret ingredients that make it truly exceptional. She’s always thrilled to share the recipe with guests who want to recreate it at home. Additionally, she is known for preparing an amazing shakshuka served with handmade pita bread, perfect for a hearty brunch that never disappoints. And of course, you can’t miss her signature paella, a tantalizing dish that captures the essence of Spanish cuisine. So, if you’re looking for a Chef who will pamper your taste buds with diverse and delectable meals, while providing a memorable and enjoyable culinary journey, then she is the perfect choice for you.

*If unforeseen circumstances prevent this crew from hosting your charter, another competent crew will substitute.
