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 Colleen & Peter again someday, wherever they are.
Meeting and sailing with you both has been beautiful. We feel so relaxed and spoilt by your great cooking Colleen, and both of your ready to please attitude. We miss you already!

CAPTAIN LEE ADAMS & CHEF LEANNE HO-CHUNG
Lee’s interest in the Maritime Industry was installed in him from the earliest age possible, owing to his grandfather being Admiral Tom Hardiman of the Port Elizabeth Navy. While at a young age he took part in bay racing and lending a hand at the local yacht club. His passion for sailing grew and after school and much thought, Lee took to the oceans on a recreational professional side as opposed to the Navy. He joined a crew and raced across the Atlantic, where he took part in regattas in Antigua and St Maarten. In the USA he was able to establish himself as a valuable crew member aboard a classic Schooner that circumnavigated the globe, and after completing his maritime studies he was fortunate to take over as skipper and gained more experience in the engineering department. Lee is an active and enthusiastic person, he enjoys all water sports. The experiences he has gained through his travels along with a jovial personality creates a pleasant atmosphere which is enough to make any guest aboard feel right at home, ready to relax and enjoy themselves.
Leanne hails from the Bondi Beach on the sunny Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
There are too many specialities to mention, but with Leanne’s infectious happy vibes, ever present sense of humor and of course, incredibly presented, appetizing, delectable and mouth watering meals prepared from breakfast to dinner with everything in between.
Leanne has been in the customer service industry for two decades and has focused on yacht charters over the last 5 years. Leanne’s experience is extensive and varied ranging from Chef/First mate on private catamarans and term charter yachts to serving in fine-dining restaurants and bars, luxury hotels and B&B accommodation.
Leanne previously held positions as a chef, deckhand, restaurant supervisor, fine dining waitress/ bartender, personal chef and dive master in various countries around the world. All of these vocations have required exceptional people skills and social interaction, both of which come naturally.
Leanne is always willing to cater to any palate. Her passion for creating meals allows her to experiment with many different flavors, whether it be Asian or Mediterranean, North American or Caribbean. My main focus is keeping food as healthy as possible using as many fresh ingredients available. Of course, dietary requirements are always taken into consideration.
Leanne welcomes you on board Zingara and looks forward to providing you with a culinary experience you have never experienced before.
FIRST MATE – ANDRES/ STEWARDESS – CAMILLE
Andres is from Costa Rica. He grew up by the ocean in the Guanacaste region in the Northern pacific side of the country and started surfing at a young age. It’s when he started diving that he decided that his career would be linked to the ocean, its marine environment and its wildlife.
Through his past experiences in one of the biggest 5 star resorts of Costa Rica, Andres has learned how to offer high standards of hospitality that he hopes to put to good use in the service industry. Guiding and instructing diving have led him to follow his dreams of working by the ocean and his goal is to one day become a captain and run his own boat. Always with a smile on his face and a charming accent, he will be always be happy to share with you his love for the ocean and watersport activities.
Andrés and Camille met while working as dive instructors in Costa Rica. Their common passion, motivations and interests grew into a strong relationship and they decided to chase their ocean dreams together. Their combined experience and enthusiasm for outdoor and water-sport activities and the pleasure they have in sharing this with others make them a great team aboard Zingara. Andrés speaks fluent Spanish and English while Camille is fully trilingual in English, French, and Italian and can speak some Spanish as well. They are thrilled to be working on Zingara, to gain more experience in the service industry and to make guests enjoy life on the ocean as much as they do.
Zingara’s EPIC crew will give you the experience of a lifetime!
