CAPTAIN JIM & MATE/CHEF LISA
U.S. coast Guard Licensed Captain Jim Ringland was born in New Hampshire and attended Northeastern University School of Engineering. He is an avid outdoors-man and while in New Hampshire enjoyed sailing, water-skiing, dirt biking, camping, and hiking. He has won awards for downhill skiing and jumping, marksmanship, swimming, and business management. Jim is also a certified Scuba Master Diver.
Jim owned a successful real estate business and an automobile dealership. He gave it all up to cruise the southern islands on a sailboat and began his career of yacht charters in Florida and the Bahamas. After chartering as a single Captain in the Virgin Islands from 1983 to 1987, he moved back to New England to develop real estate, where he met his wife Lisa.
Born and raised in Keene, New Hampshire, Lisa attended Franklin Pierce College for Business Management and Accounting. Also an outdoor enthusiast, Lisa enjoys sailing, snorkeling, and hiking. She is also a certified scuba diver.
Lisa’s love of cooking began at an early age with a stepfather who attended the New England Culinary Institute and enjoyed cooking side by side with Lisa and her brother while teaching them the art. After college, Lisa began to work for a local CPA and started her own catering service specializing in private cocktail and dinner parties in the clients’ home.
Captain Jim has enjoyed entertaining guests on yacht charters since 1983 as a single Captain, and together with Lisa in the Virgin Islands since the fall of 1990.
Captain Jim and Lisa have welcomed guests together on their yachts Renegade, Southern Comfort, Obsession, Runaway, and now Eclipse.

This was our 5th trip with this crew. Our first 4 trips were on their previous boat. We loved it but their new boat is even more spectacular!! We highly recommend chartering with them. Captain’s knowledge of the area and of boating is excellent. Chef’s meals are better than any restaurant in the islands. Everything she serves is fabulous. Everyone is always sad when our trip comes to an end. We will definitely book trip #6 with them. Do yourself a favorite and book this trip of a lifetime
WOW! The new Catamaran is Gorgeous and HUGE! We will always have a soft spot for the old boat, but this was definitely the step up in room and comfort that you said. Our two families all had a great time. Plenty to do for the adults and kids. Hadn't gotten on the paddle boards before and I was surprised how easy it was learning how to stand up and paddle - I was nervous the first time, but I am glad you talked me into trying it. Still love snorkeling in the islands, and there is usually lots to see, the turtles are there at our usual spots and I had never seen the wild goats on the one island before. The chef’s food - she is always able to come up with something new as well as our usual favorites. Every meal was gourmet and plenty of it. Just when you think you might be hungry, food just appears! And I won't mention the nice pairing of the endless supply of wines. Captain really knows his way around the Islands and was able to find new anchorages and new things to do for us even though this was our 5th trip with this crew The new boat Eclipse is absolutely AMAZING! I was happy on the old Power Boat but the new. Cat is modern, big, clean, neat and everything is new, and yes, it even "smells" new (you can still smell the leather upholstery in the main salon like that new car smell). Every boats Captain and Crew are unique, but sometimes it feels more like coming home to family when we get to the islands, Obviously we enjoy the crew’s company, that's why it's our 5th trip. But this new boat blows us away, and being able to bring the extra couple made it easier to fit all those that wanted to come. It's huge, comfortable and perfect for our group of 8. We'll definitely be back for #6!!
The Captain and Crew are amazing and treat you like old friends from the moment you arrive. The food was like a 5 star restaurant . We have chartered BVI for 10 years and this boat was spectacular with large cabins and endless amounts of room to relax .
We had a wonderful time! It was so very relaxing and well-planned. The crew were incredibly knowledgeable. We requested to really have more of a quiet, crowd free trip. They certainly delivered. We were in coves that were essentially private avery soothing. The captain took us all tubing as the coves were wide open and the chef prepared amazing dishes. I have a severe allergy to casein, a form of a dairy allergy. She researched and planned meals around it. I have not personally eaten that well in a long time. They were also very knowledgeable regarding dive sites. I was a little nervous diving the Rhone due to the currents, but they knew it extremely well and were able to describe and explain what to expect. When we were done, the kids would ask questions about fish and they knew every one. We also left with recipes. We have already created the crew’s homemade Pain Killer recipe. We would love to bring friends along next time. This crew went out of their way to really make this a fantastic vacation. The proof is in wanting to bring friends back with us to share in the experience. Just an overall very fun trip and one we will certainly do again!
Thank you so very much for everything you did for us and our family! We had a fantastic time. You provided us with a total BVI experience. This has been an incredible week! We've loved everything. Your knowledge of the islands, the best snorkeling spots ever made this such a complete vacation. You are both so genuine and accommodating to all of our varied wants and needs. We feel like we did it all - and loved it ever more than I imagined. Your meals were delicious and it was obvious that they were prepared with love! You are a wonderful chef...we will miss you. Hope to come back next year!!
