Your Crew


Ivan – My love for the ocean started thanks to family holidays spent at the beach. Exploring, snorkeling, and fishing. Straight after high school, I chose to become a scuba diving instructor, which allowed me to travel, explore, and be exposed to different cultures.

Being out on the ocean makes me feel at ease, I like the mystery hidden in it and love the many possibilities to have fun in and on the water. My interests of mine include sailing, engineering, DIY projects, vintage cars, and genuine love and care for animals and plants.

Marisia – Growing up in Cape Town, with big waves and strong winds. Every Sunday morning you would find my family and me on the beach. We’d spend our time body surfing. Seeing the waves as challenges, conquering the fear of the size, reading the waves by moving with them, letting our bodies adapt to the cold waters, and focusing our minds on controlling our breathing. Sundays were my favorite, for the ocean taught me things I didn’t learn in school. When challenges come I treat them like a wave. Observe, evaluate, learn, and take it on headstrong.

Our story starts in the heart of South Africa in a small town called Potchefstroom. Marisia was studying hairdressing and Ivan just got back from working at sea on a 130ft motor yacht as Deckhand/Divemaster. We quickly bonded over our love for the ocean and meeting new people. We soon decided to move down west to old Cape Town herself, where Marisia continued studying and Ivan went back to sea on an 86ft M/Y Nordhavn as First Mate/Engineer/Relief Captain in Fort Lauderdale.

Marisia loved doing hair but now it was time for her other love, the ocean. She began studying the laws of the sea and learning everything she could about life onboard, and soon she was ready to join Ivan.

We pride ourselves on serving guests with high standards. We love creating the perfect vacation, sailing only to the best places -from the most famous bars to untouched secluded bays.

Best Catamaran Trip Yet!

This was our best catamaran trip yet. The crew were a fantastic crew who understood all we were looking for & had great knowledge to share & such enthusiasm for life! Our group of 6 all loved our time on Ether!

Absolutely Perfect

This trip was absolutely perfect and it was all thanks to Ivan and Marisia! We were absolutely spoiled and no other sailing trip will ever compare. We all got to experience new things and some of us conquered our fears of the ocean thanks to the calm and expert guidance of our crew. When we get home we will all forever be longing to hear the conch shell for the chef's spectacular meals. Please come visit us. Thank you for a week of unforgettable memories.

Unforgettable Week

This week has been incredible starting with the warm welcome and big hugs. It was easy to see your genuine personalities and bubbling energy. We knew you were the perfect fit for us! Chef-your attention to meals was over the top and much appreciated. I don't think we ate one thing that we didn't like. We also appreciated the variety of snacks set out for any time. Your enthusiasm for life is contagious never lose that ! You both made us feel at home and inspire us to return sooner than later. We will definitely miss you especially Monday morning when we are making our own breakfast! You are truly something special and we feel blessed to know you. We wish you all the luck. Thank you for the most unforgettable week and for letting us be part of your world. Stay in touch .

We just competed an 8 day charter with Ether and her crew and had a wonderful time. They are both kind and energetic people who are outstanding professionals. I would not hesitate in the future to book them for a repeat charter and hope to do so. I can highly recommend them for your next BVI trip.

So Memorable

Thank you for making this past week the most memorable, relaxing, and fun week ever! I feel so lucky to have gotten to know you both here's to more adventures together.

Forever Grateful

I just want to thank you both immensely for the wonderful week on Ether. You guys were the chillest, most down-to-earth pair of captains I could imagine and made our week amazing. Forever grateful for all the amazing food and calm leadership this week. Best of luck with everything you guys do in the future!

Treated Like Royalty!

The crew of Ether were just incredible. As I shared with them there is customer service and there is customer experience. Customer service is how you treat someone, customer experience is how that person feels treated. I believe I can speak for each and every one of us that were on the trip that they treated us like Royalty! The food was better than a 5 star hotel and their patience, kindness, and humbleness is unheard of in today’s world. If there is anything that we can do to pass on our gratitude to whomever they work for or our appreciation please let us know.  Again I lack the words to convey how amazing they were. THEY made the TRIP!!

Truly Dynamic Duo

A truly a dynamic duo. Two very important parts of the guest charter experience are professionalism in yachting skills and hospitality.
They excelled in both! Captain is a skilled sailor while cruising and is very mechanical, keeping everything clean and working. He is also an excellent dive master.  Chef is a skilled sailing mate and has top notch galley skills, preparing wonderful meals. What strikes me most is their happiness and rhythm as a working couple.
They run an excellent charter and it was probably the best I've seen in the last ten years as an avid charterer. Most notable is their local knowledge and their ability to make guests feel comfortable. They are truly lovely and personable people.

Absolutely Phenomenal

I sailed for a week in the BVIs with  this crew and cannot speak highly enough about their level of professionalism, service & most importantly- FUN. Captain gave us a very detailed low down on our itinerary each day, clearly showing the knowledge he had about the area. We were on a set itinerary that we had done previously, so when we asked about any new magic hidden spots to venture to, he was happy to comply. He took us to some of the most beautiful hidden grottos in the BVIs. Always with a smile or a quick witted compliment- could not have asked for a better captain.
Chef is also just an absolute ray of sunshine. I'm not sure that I've ever met someone with so much energy & levity- it's absolutely contagious. She served absolutely amazing food every single day, paying special attention to dietary needs, and even went above and beyond when my 30th birthday arrived on the last day of our charter. She not only baked an incredible cake, but had a competition series for the entire boat to participate in. Oh- and decorated my cabin full of balloons! She always has a smile on her face and is eager to help in any way you might need.
Overall this team is absolutely phenomenal at what they do. From technical knowledge, to amazing customer service- they provide everything any charter guest would need. I would highly recommend them to anyone or any company. They will not disappoint.

Wonderful Memories

I could fill the entire book with all the wonderful memories that you helped us create, but that would leave no room for others to journal their good wishes...

Thank you for feeding us some of the best food we've ever eaten, motoring us to every "must see" spot in the BVI and entertaining us with stories your own adventures. I feel like we came to Ether as customers, but left as friends.
We truly could not have had a more enjoyable vacation. Thanks for the memories.
