Captain Brad & Chef/Mate Kristi Marquart
Brad grew up in a small Mississippi river town in Missouri. After completing a degree in Biology at a liberal arts college it was time for some adventure, and he left the Midwest for a new life on the ocean. He joined a commercial fisheries management consultancy in Alaska, working on fishing vessels to provide precise and timely data regarding fishery health directly to NOAA. After working aboard 12 large fishing and fish processing vessels operating out of Dutch Harbor and Juneau, he traded the Bering Sea for the Rocky Mountains and moved to Denver, Colorado. There he started as a bioenergy researcher developing alternatives to mining coal, before switching gears and becoming an environmental scientist liaising between the oil and gas industry and state regulatory bodies. However, his previous life on the ocean had left a mark.
Upon meeting Kristi, the new team set out to reconnect with previous careers on the water. Denver provides perhaps the most landlocked American Sailing School in the USA, and Kristi and Brad took every class they had time for. They left Denver for the east coast where they assisted with a sailboat delivery, and then took to new careers aboard a 74 foot charter ketch here in the Virgin Islands, which led to Brad earning his USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license and moving on to operate charter catamarans. Now starting his fourth year in the term charter industry, Brad has also earned a nitrox scuba certification and enjoys sharing chef’s and guide duties with his wife. An innate naturalist, he loves identifying fish and watching their behavior. He loves life most when guiding snorkel and hiking excursions in the beautiful Virgin Islands and when winding down with our always-interesting guests after a memorable day.
Kristi has a diverse background within the charter boat and restaurant industries. Her culinary interest sparked at an early age in her family’s restaurant and brewery in Kansas, where she worked every position throughout high school and college. Eager to grow in the hospitality industry after graduating from KU, Kristi went on to manage three successful restaurant openings across the country with a company that believed in serving real food sourced from American farmers. She has always loved to cook for friends and family but it was her experience working alongside talented chefs and restaurateurs that ultimately groomed Kristi for her role as the chef aboard Sea Esta. Her cuisine style utilizes fresh ingredients that bring both color and flavor to the plate. She obtains high quality cuts of meat and locally sourced eggs, produce and seafood (when available). Her menus are made with her guests preferences in mind, and she loves the creative freedom of serving beautiful meals that become a conversation piece over the table.
Kristi also holds a Captain’s license, a bachelors degree in environmental science, a nitrox diver certification, and ten years of experience handling various boats along the coasts of California, Georgia, South Carolina, and throughout the entire Eastern Caribbean. This is her seventh season operating charter boats out of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Kristi & Brad are honored to call Sea Esta home and will ensure your vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.
Kerry is a qualified PADI Staff Dive Instructor. As well as teaching continuing education courses, she has greatly enjoyed introducing many new students to diving, including children. Kerry is a native of the UK and when not sailing and diving she enjoys riding motorcycles, traveling, and trying new activities.
Her passion for adventure is infectious and will open a whole new world to you, her special guest!

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We had a fantastic time & loved getting to know you! Everything was perfect - all the great food & drink - and all those bowls of chips!! Sorry we underestimated our liquor consumption…We will do better next time! From the fantastic food, snorkeling spots, the sub-wing fun, the flamingo in the bedroom, the trip to Fallen Jerusalem, the sunrise trek in the dark, the second wedding for Ron & Eileen (thank you so much for being such wonderful participants & sharing your special champagne with us that night)! We were so happy you met us at Maho (trusted us to be there) & we loved the fact that you allowed us to blow the conch shell every sunset even though it was one of your most prized possessions. We hope to sail with you again. Love ya! Kathy, Joe, Eileen & Ron
Words can’t express our gratitude for everything you both did to make our trip amazing. You both are so beautiful inside and out. When we look back at this trip, we will remember the beauty of the water and islands, but the most memorable will be the cooking and service you gave all of us. Thank you from our hearts for showing us your current home and showing us your love.
Our trip with you was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. Your hospitality, warmth, attention to detail were surpassingly good. The food was lights out delicious and the cocktails were super yummy. But the best thing was spending time with fine people like yourselves. Thank you for everything. We love you guys!
Truly a vacation of a lifetime and thank you for sharing your gorgeous home with us as we regroup and celebrate Greg’s 50th Birthday! Your generous spirit, incredible food, patience and amazing sense of humor allowed our family and friends to spend much needed time together. We will be forever grateful for your hospitality. Please think of us if your travels bring you to Austin as we’d love to do the same for you! Best to you in 2020 and beyond!
Had the most amazing time, thank you so much for everything. The food was absolutely stunning, the sailing was really fun, but the highlight had to be the tubing/waterskiing surrounded by beautiful scenery. Will miss being able to go diving so easily and seeing awesome underwater world. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.
I had the most amazing time on Sea Esta again. I loved the swimming, knee boarding,, snorkeling, and relaxing. Thank you so much for everything you did. PS: I will love to be here again, I love you Sea Esta.
