CAPTAIN KYLE & CHEF/MATE NICOLA
Captain Kyle has spent his life learning from the Ocean. He was raised by his mother Danita, a USCG 100 ton Masters Captain on the ICW of south Florida and beyond, and his Grandfather Sy, who lived in the Caribbean most of his life and survived hurricane Andrew at sea. Sy was an extremely talented tradesperson, and built his cement trawler himself from a bare hull, and taught all he knew to his daughter and Grandson. Kyleʼsʼ mother Danita was making passages to Panama as early as 18, later restored a classic 62ʼ wooden motor yacht to showroom condition among many other impressive accomplishments.
From an early age Kyle was responsible for driving and maintaining the dinghy, helm duties aboard his grandfather’s cement trawler on the Abaco Banks, and learned to sail in Abaco, Sailing Dinghies, and aboard his mother’s classic Cheoy Lee sailboat. His first license to operate a vessel unsupervised on the ICW was earned at 14, the youngest age allowed by law. He traveled between Florida, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and the UK all of his childhood and teenage years.
In his teens and early 20s, Kyle became a mechanic, learned fiberglass repair and fabrication and other skills, but gravitated towards a career as a professional guide. From Wave-runner and river tours in Charleston, Water-sports activities, Offshore sailing in the Gulf Stream, and Kiteboarding in the T&C and everywhere in between, Kyle has always enjoyed meeting new people and sharing his love of nautical thrill-seeking.
As far as hobbies go, Kyle enjoys Kiteboarding, Free-diving, Fishing, Diving, wakeboarding, Horseback Riding, Sailing, Traveling, Hiking, Drone Photography, and much more.
At 23 he purchased a sailboat in New York, restored her, and sailed her to the Virgin Islands over the course of 3 years. Along the way exploring the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Spanish Virgin Islands, and finally falling in love with the USVI and BVI. There he got his USCG 100 ton Masters certification, as well as Aux Sailing, Towing, Management and Leadership, STCW, and Advanced SCUBA certifications. From Captain School in Saint Thomas, he was recruited right away to run a 60ʼ luxury catamaran in the BVIs, where he enjoyed hosting his guests and showing them all that the Virgin Islands have to offer. During the off-season, he sailed to Grenada and ran charters in the Grenadines and Saint Vincent.
After 3 great years of making lifelong friends and offering “the vacation of a lifetime” Kyle finally found ReAction, a veteran Term Charter Luxury Catamaran. She is the perfect vessel to offer these exceptional vacations not just in the Virgin Islands, but all over the world!
Nicola hails from Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, the home of Shakespeare! Although she was born far from the ocean, she first scuba dived when she was just ten years old and from then she was entranced with the beauty of the ocean and of its therapeutic benefits. She holds a degree in psychology and is passionate about sharing the tranquility of SCUBA and the conservation of our oceans with all that will listen.
From working as an instructor and guide on board yachts in the Bahamas and the Virgin Islands, a five-star resort in Cyprus, and various other islands within Europe and the Caribbean she is never found too far from the ocean! She loves all water-sports and is particularly fond of swimming, with the aim of swimming across the English Channel in the next five years.
Nicola’s passion for cooking and travel shows in the beautiful meals that she produces. Priding herself on a fusion style from the many countries she has visited including heavy influences from Europe as well as Asia. She strives to make people happy through the meals she prepares by appealing to both taste and visual senses. Of course, she is happy to accommodate dietary requirements and caters to all palates. Her menu is generally focused on healthy delicacies using the freshest local ingredients available.
Away from the Galley and the water, she loves to explore new destinations and cultures. She has also read the vows for over two hundred weddings and renewals across the world from Haiti to Norway and Miami to New Zealand.
Nicola has worked within the customer service industry for over a decade and is looking forward to welcoming you aboard ReAction and helping to create an unforgettable vacation along with Captain Kyle. Sharing her absolute passion for the ocean and providing an unforgettable culinary experience she endeavors to deliver the very best experience to all guests in and out of the water!
Kyle and Nicola come together to form the perfect team to run an already well-known yacht and offer your family the very best vacation experience possible. You will never forget your time aboard YES DEAR, and it will be an experience to treasure, always!

The crew were delightful. Everyone was astounded at the meals and presentation of the food, and they were the Highest Quality! The vacation was fabulous we would come again in a heartbeat!
Really, there are no words to describe how amazing this vacation was. One of our very best ones ever! You made us feel like friends, not just guests & crew. In that spirit we INSIST that you visit us in California so we can wine & dine you and take you fishing on our boat! There is a yellow fin Tuna or Dorado with your name on it!
Our Dearest Yes Dear Crew- beautiful people, amazing week! We cannot THANK YOU enough for this experience! The food we have never experienced any so wonderful! Your knowledge of the boat, this area and places to stop and snorkel are unsurpassed! We are in love!! The “okay guys” clap will be missed! Until we meet again, which we will!
Where to begin? We came here to celebrate friendship and 50th birthdays and came away with so much more! From the very beginning your easy going and fun personalities combined with your expertise and professionalism made for a wonderful week. Although at 50 we are all feeling a bit under accomplished after listening to all of your incredible adventures. Chef, you are a true gourmet: the variety and presentation of every meal was 5 star! Captain, your knowledge of every nook and cranny of the BVI makes us all believe you are an actual descendant of Blackbeard himself! We truly hope to see you both again sometime in our near futures!
