Daniel & Carolina

The Outside the Box team, can’t wait to welcome you to the BVI

Captain Daniel, a biologist with a deep passion for sailing, has been living his dreams since 2004. His love for the sea, whales, dolphins, and sailing has driven him for over two decades. Throughout this time, he has served as both captain and biologist on charter and scientific research vessels.

Daniel’s enthusiasm extends to sharing his wealth of knowledge, stories, and experiences with guests and friends alike. Having spent five years residing on various Caribbean islands, particularly in the BVI and Saint Maarten, he leverages his expertise to collaboratively craft the finest itineraries and anchorages with his guests.

Safety is always a top priority for Daniel aboard his vessel, ensuring that his guests can relax and enjoy the journey with peace of mind. However, his greatest attribute lies in his ability to infuse joy, fun, and hospitality into every voyage, often through the inclusion of good music, sea activities, and warm camaraderie.


Chef Carolina was born and raised in Brazil, always immersed in the sea and nature. Her family embraced an alternative and liberated lifestyle, residing in a community where teamwork was essential. Consequently, Carolina developed a penchant for adventures and outdoor pursuits, such as surfing, snorkeling, camping, and sailing.

Her passion for cooking blossomed as she delighted in preparing meals for friends, infusing her dishes with a blend of good taste and artistic creativity. One of her signature creations is “Moqueca,” a Brazilian seafood dish featuring coconut milk, palm oil, and vegetables, served with rice and “farofa” (cassava flour, butter, and red onion). Carolina’s kitchen prowess thrives on her creativity, often incorporating local ingredients into her culinary masterpieces.

Her journey into the world of sailboats began when she met her current partner, Captain Daniel. Together, they form a harmonious and proficient duo. Carolina’s maritime experience includes roles as a chef, stewardess, and deckhand, with stints in Greece, at CLC, and aboard private vessels like Schooner Goleta Gringo, Cataman Farofa, and Catamaran Mr. Jazz.

With her youthful spirit, amiable nature, organizational skills, creativity, and unwavering motivation, Carolina finds immense joy in her work. She takes pleasure in seeing others happy and goes above and beyond to ensure her guests’ satisfaction.
