Your Crew

CAPTAIN PAUL AND CHEF/MATE URSULA

Captain Paul grew up fishing and hunting in the woods of Wisconsin. After graduating high school my sense of adventure took over and I left for Florida, where I worked at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, one of the highest-rated 5-star hotels in the world. Working at the Ritz taught me the high standards of customer service that I bring with me to yachting. While living in Florida my love of the sea grew, I learned to dive and started taking photography courses. After a few years in Florida, I left for Chatanooga Tennessee to open a restaurant.

In Tennessee, I joined the National Guard serving as a gunner on an Abrams tank. When not working at my restaurant or training with the Guard I would spend my time hiking through the Smoky Mountains have hiked over 300 miles of the Appalachian Trail. After years of working and hiking the sea started calling my name again, I applied for the Marine biology program at the University of the Virgin Islands and moved to the island, and purchased my first sailboat an Endeavor 37 2015. During my time At UVI studying Marine Biology, I was able to intern for Oceans Research in South Africa for a summer working with great white sharks and whales. After graduating I combined my love of the ocean and sailing and started working on yachts traveling from Grenada to Boston.

Ursula Schultz credits her parents for her love of food. Raised in the country her family’s property included a farm where she learned how to make cheese, butter pickle, butcher, and grow produce. My first experience with cooking was on a wood stove at seven making breakfasts for the family with fresh eggs and ingredients from the garden. At sixteen Schultz had a “career” day at her school where she worked alongside chefs at a french cuisine restaurant and by the end of the day, they offered her a position at the restaurant. A couple of years later, Schultz started her own catering business and ever since has been bringing “as good as it looks” meals to celebrities, families, and food lovers! Aside from her career as a chef, Schultz is a professional violinist. She has performed internationally with award-winning groups for Prime ministers, Royals, and music enthusiasts alike. Schultz offers an unforgettable experience on Playtime with an option to include both foods for the stomach and music for the soul.

Amazing Week

We all want to thank you for this amazing week. The islands are indeed one of the most beautiful places on earth. Beautiful islands, perfect beaches and many things to do. It’s a perfect combination of relaxing and being active with watersports and amazing hikes. Your catamaran is perfect, the best we saw during the whole trip. You can comfortably sit on the front sofa area, in the shady cockpit, on the special champagne deck, or on the flybridge with the breeze. Also the rooms are big and comfortable and way beyond our expectations. TOP NOTCH! Like always it is the people that really make the difference. Your service, your cooking and your good mood is beyond exceptional. But really special is your personal touch: you try to find out what we want and fulfil our wishes even the ones we didn’t say out loud. And you for that! You are also an inspiring couple. The life choice you both made, the joy you have in the ‘small things in life’, the body language between you two when you are sailing, the tender care that the captain takes of the boat….we could go on. Thank you so much! We will remember you and this experience forever and this certainly not be our last visit to your paradise!

Trip Was Amazing

The trip was amazing. We all had boat loads-ha ha- of fun. The grandkids loved the crew as did we all.. They did their utmost to make the trip memorable and succeeded. The boat was amazing. We can't thank you enough for your last minute pull the catamaran out of the hat trick. They took us to places we remembered from our past trips and some we had not been to. All in all it was wonderful. The crew, the boat, the food- everything. Evenings after the kids went to bed when we weren't too tired ourselves, were chock full of games and drinks. Taboo, Pass the pigs, and a dice game the crew taught us brought on the laughs. Watching Jonah think he was steering the boat when it was on autopilot was hilarious. They had the grandkids write notes and put them in wine bottles and throw them overboard. We have videos and pictures to document our Island jaunts, including conch blowing with "The Pirate".

Boat Was Amazing

The boat was AMAZING! My wife shed real tears when we got off the boat and sail goodbye to the crew. We had the perfect week on the boat. We were so impressed with every aspect of the crew. Great captains, cooks, hosts, tour guides, dive instructors and now friends. Thanks for everything, it was perfect!

Postcard In Every Direction

Once we left harbor I realized the next 6 days would be a postcard in every direction. I like to be active and between scuba diving, wake-boarding, stand up paddle boarding, and kayaking I had plenty to do. Each day was checking out a new beautiful and quaint island. Each meal was incredible, not just decent. It was a great bonus to have WiFi and be able to FaceTime with my wife and kids. A week that sadly flew by...

Favorite Vacation Ever

When I was trying to figure it out what to do for my 50th birthday, never did I dream it would turn out to be so magical & special.Planning it for 9 months with little understanding of the BVI & catamaran . There would have been no way imagine what a special trip & birthday it could be. Once we arrived , we were greeted by the sweet crew, our trip finally began to unfold & I began to relax & enjoy. The hostess/chef did everything to make our trip fabulous, special & her attention to every detail was just AMAZING. Her skill in the kitchen stole the show- no need to go anywhere else but "her table". Her kindness, trough fulness & generous desire to our trip so unique & my birthday unforgettful is soooo appreciated. I will never forget my 50th birthday! The captain, the master boat man always there to take care of me safely, got us to every beautiful location, made all our stops as different island seemless and was ready at a moment to put a SUP out, make sure that our wine glass were filled, music right and every detail attended to...an absolute delight to share this trip with.Thank you from the bottom of my hearts, this one of my favorite vacation ever!

Double Thumbs Up Experience

My week on Playtime exceeded any expectations I had. The crew were professional, friendly, extremely helpful and pleasant to be around. The cooking was A+. Any special dietary needs were worked with care and consideration. We had vegetarian and non-vegetarian and some gluten free eating . The boat comfortably slept 9 men and the crew! Sailing was a joy. The crew were also well experienced in the islands and were able to lead us to exquisite diving and snorkel spots. They were also superb diving instructors for first time divers like myself. On day four of our trip some of us swam out to a mother and baby dolphin that were passing by. The dolphins swam near us and circled around us for about 15 minutes. It was a definite highlight. The crew also had rapport with customs which made dealing with passports much easier and more efficient. It was an amazing week! My friends and I were taken great of by an experienced, kind, fun, and thoughtful crew! This was a Double Thumbs Up experience. 5 Stars!

Fabulous Experienc

In one word, our experience was fabulous. The crew fulfilled all our expectations, they were friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and most of all, created just the right atmosphere for a wonderful vacation. Playtime was in tip top shape, clean and spacious, just the right size for three couples. If you remember, I was contemplating asking another couple to join us but you hinted that it would be best for three couples, and I am glad you did. The food was great, thanks to the chef for exceptional culinary skills. Every meal was tasteful, beautifully presented, and just the right amount.  As far as the itinerary, we told the crew what we were interested in (mostly snorkeling, diving, sailing and just relaxing) and they guided us to right spots. All of us felt that we will have to get back.

Best Vacation

I wanted to take some time to thank you again for the great trip we had a couple of weeks ago. It was by far the best vacation I have ever been on and I think everyone in our group feels the same way. your hospitality was greatly appreciated. You both did an excellent job handling our crazy group. Every meal you prepared was excellent. Every place you took us was a great time. Everybody in our group enjoyed spending time with you. I can't wait to do it again. A trip in the BVI with you guys makes coming back to the real world seem like a bad idea.

True Trifecta

I want to take a few short moments to convey my utter respect to the yacht and crew. Finding talent is hard and they are quite a find. Young and responsible Captains, Chefs and Dive Instructors. A true trifecta. Our family just returned from what can only be described as the trip of our lifetime. The crew exceeded all expectations. From diving to dining, to dingying we had a blast. We were treated with friendly hospitality, professional courtesy, mechanical mastery, safety stewardship and local lore. I would recommend them to any of my friends gladly and will.

Best Experience

My family could not imagine a better crew. After spending a week with them, we found them both to have mastered all aspects of piloting, cooking, tour guiding, and SCUBA/snorkeling. They both have an even temperament and connect with both children and adults equally. Their meal preparation for breakfast, lunch, hors d'oeuvres, dinner and desserts were amazing in terms of being original, taste and presentations and every meal was so much better than what we experience with even the finest restaurants on shore. They are both experts in leading underwater adventures and were able to find and show interesting marine life that we would have missed on our own. They worked so hard all day long to provide us with the best possible experience.
