CAPTAIN CAMILLE & CHEF KATIE
Originally from France and Italy, Camille (Right in the photo) has been an ocean lover and nature enthusiast from a very young age. She grew up in Italy where her weekends were mostly spent horseback riding, swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, sailing on lakes with her dad, and skiing in the mountains. After studying Business and Management in England and France, she moved to the Caribbean to work in marine conservation. There, she discovered scuba diving and started sailing more regularly. She fell in love with the ocean, which led her to pursue a life at sea in the yachting industry.
Over the past four years on Zingara, Camille has learned a great deal about boat handling, sailing, the good running of the vessel, and the industry as a whole. Her background as a lodge manager and horseback safari guide in Kenya, as well as a dive instructor in Costa Rica, forms a solid foundation for the high-level service she provides today. Camille knows the BVIs and the Southern Caribbean inside out, which allows her to choose the best possible itinerary and easily adapt to the guests’ preferences.
She is a very energetic Captain and is always excited to share her love for the ocean with guests. She’ll happily take them on adventures – whether it be underwater, above water, or on land. She always looks forward to giving the guests the best possible experience.
Katie (next to Camille) began cheffing professionally in 2016 for The Moorings in the Caribbean where she found a love for the culture and flavors of the Caribbean
She has been working in the Caribbean ever since, spending her downtime diving, hiking, and exploring all the BVI has to offer on the marine industry and towards another great passion: food and cuisine. Ed’s culinary background includes one of the UK’s best and busiest gastropubs, a 2 AA rosette restaurant as well as a Michelin star kitchen. Most recently Ed has been running the Conference and Banqueting operations at one of the most prestigious hotels in Southeast England, planning and executing wedding banquets and other large-scale feasts for up to 200 people.
After a fantastic summer working onboard Superyachts, Katie is now on Zingara and so excited to share her culinary creations with her guests.
Whatever your requests or requirements she is more than happy to tailor her menu exclusively for her guests every need, using only the freshest and most vibrant local ingredients Katie’s dishes will guarantee to wow
FIRST MATE ORIOL & STEWARDESS ALEXANDRA
Born and raised in Spain, Oriol (left in the photo) grew up between the mountains and the seaside. He is an open-minded and enthusiastic guy that will always be there to make you feel at home. His deep interest in discovering new cultures and understanding the unknown pushed him to study Diplomacy and International Relations in the United Kingdom. A determined lover of outdoor activities, he has been exploring the globe for many years. From the cold winters of the Swiss Alps to the hot eternal summers of the tropics.
Also a scuba diving instructor, his biggest motivation has always been the study and understanding of marine wildlife in order to share its wonders with everyone else. Knowing the importance that marine ecosystems have on the world, he has taken part in several coral conservation and propagation projects in Thailand and Indonesia.
Being a very attentive and joyful member aboard Zingara, Oriol will always be at your service and will love taking you on diving trips. Join him to explore the turquoise Caribbean Sea, its mysterious wrecks, or on a tour around its breath-taking jungles.
Born and raised across the globe, Alexandra (next to Oriol) rapidly developed her passion for adventure, as a young girl. She became a certified diver at the age of 12 and since that day, has fallen in love with the sheer beauty of the underwater world. Alexandra became a dive professional on Komodo island, Indonesia, where she gained extensive experience guiding and teaching in challenging dive sites with intense currents and conditions, but surrounded by the amazing reef and sea life that the Indian Ocean has to offer.
However, marine biology and ecosystem education are where her true passion lies. Alexandra has been involved with various coral conservation and rehabilitation projects worldwide. While based in Indonesia, she was responsible for the transplantation of fragmented coral to protected coral nurseries to encourage successful growth. She is a firm believer that we must protect our planet in order to enjoy our planet!
Other than her fishy friends, one of the main pleasures of Alexandra’s work is her customers. She is a real people person and takes great pleasure in looking after her guests alongside showing them all the wonders our world has to offer.
If it is diving in crystal clear waters or sipping on a wonderfully made cocktail, Alexandra is at your service to assist and ensure your dream vacation is exactly that……the dream, may you depart Zingara with many happy memories and a longing to return.

We had a fabulous trip. It was truly amazing! Crew was great. The captain picked up on our sarcasm pretty quickly and joined right in with us. It was fun with him being our same age. He was always helping the crew with whatever. Often times a hard worker in the kitchen too, was very quiet and soft spoken and often we had to tell her to smile but she was super sweet and obviously young so I can see how we were a bit intimidating. She would open up in more one on one type situations. She is a very hard worker! The stewardess was great. So funny and joked with us and always there to help and get us whatever we needed. She fit right in perfectly. The chef was amazing. Food was incredible. He said we were his fav group thus far bc we weren’t picky and we let him do his thing and finished our plates, lol! I was shocked how much time they spend in the kitchen. We enjoyed the times he could hang with us. Overall they were amazing constantly serving our needs. We ended the trip with the crew joining us for dessert and we all shared our favorite things from the week and it was really neat with crew sharing their thoughts too. We pretty much left the entire itinerary up to the Captain which he noted he appreciated that we trusted him. The stops were awesome. Weather was perfect and seas were calmest he’s ever seen. The boat was nice. Definitely was older and had its flaws at times bc of its age but nothing that stopped us from having a blast. The master room was amazing! I’m hoping we do another trip soon!
We were all talking over dinner tonight in the Miami airport about what an amazing time we had with you, this past week. Frankly, we were expecting the BVI's to be a bit war torn after the hurricanes, but were pleasantly surprised to see things nearly back to normal. The St. Thomas airport was in fine shape and the islands in the BVIs as beautiful as we remembered. Dinner on Anagada was great, the Soggy Dollar bar was a lot of fun and scuba diving in several very cool spots was a definite highlight. Zingara is a beautiful boat. Extremely comfy and your crew very attentive. We all loved the chef's cooking and the cocktails were tasty and plentiful. My family was pleased to see the BVI's as beautiful as ever and we appreciate you creating a wonderful week for us!!
Thank you all for making this such an amazing week for all of us! Zingara is such a stunning boat and with all of the amazing activities and delicious food and beverages. We so appreciate your efforts at making our birthday celebrations very special! We will miss all of you and hope to sail again soon!
What wonderful experience! The many places that you took us to and the many things we were able to see and do will be a splendid memory for years to come. By far, the best feature was the fabulous food. Day after day the chef knocked it out of the park! fresh bread, vegetables and main courses added inches to my waistline. The crew was cohesive and singularly focused on our comfort and satisfaction. They do it right on Zingara I would welcome an opportunity to sail with this group again.
Thank you for a DELICIOUS and ADVENTUROUS filled week! The boat and our attentive crew exceeded our greatest expectations. The diving, snorkeling and sailing showed us the BVI and Spanish Virgins as we’ve never seen before. Zingara is truly magical… our family has relaxed and reconnected… we will treasure our memories and hope to see you again soon!
Thank you so much for absolutely everything. It was the best experience and every day more memorable than the day before. Truly “World Class”.
We are back in Naples and missing the Zingara and crew. I am doing laundry and yes I must cook dinner tonight! Such a shock to my system after being pampered for a week! Mark and I had the best time last week! You all treated us as royalty! Your attentiveness and professionalism was accomplished in such a warm and friendly manner. Thank you to each of you! And thank YOU for the 5 extra pounds! Haha! The food was amazing! You are such a talented chef! Our crew has anointed me the "author" of the Zingara 2016 Cruise Cookbook! So if you would not mind sharing some of your amazing recipes, it would be greatly appreciated! Of course whenever it is convenient for you! Thank you for a perfect week and for the recipes!
What a fantastic week in a fantastic location, spent with fantastic friends, and a FANTASTIC crew. The crew made this trip absolutely wonderful from start to finish! They were always there for anything and everything!! Phenomenal food, drinks, and snorkeling sites every day. Our sincere thanks to Captain Lee, his lovely bride of one year, Nadine, Kieran and Michelle!! Great job by all!!
Our family had one the most wonderful charters ever with Zingara! We have been chartering for many years so I feel very comfortable saying that Zingara is top notch and this was our second charter with her. The crew took such wonderful care of us and anticipated our every need. We all had a ball and we look forward to chartering again ! The crew made certain every evening anchorage was comfortable for us. The food was amazing and even our pickiest eater was happy! Happy Sailing!
We will never forget this trip EVER and hope we can visit the boat and crew again someday, wherever they are.
