Your Crew


As a child, Ish anxiously awaited the arrival of summer when he would head to his grandparents’ cottage in Ontario. The waters of Lake Huron became the playground where Ish learned to sail his grandparents’ 16’ Wayfarer. On any given sunny summer day, he could be found out on the lake struggling to untangle himself from a rat’s nest of lines or being caught by a sneaky gust that caused him to capsize. Those first few years with the Wayfarer served as a foundation for a great passion for sailing. After graduating from high school, Ish attended Prescott College in Arizona where he fed an insatiable appetite for the outdoors. College orientation, a 3-week backpacking trip through a canyon in Arizona, opened a whole new world of outdoor pursuits and possibilities. Over the next 4 years, he filled his spare time with surfing, backcountry skiing, white water rafting, rock climbing, stargazing, campfire-ing, and howling at the moon! A desire to sail in saltwater persisted, even in the desert. Ish satisfied his saltwater cravings with a job living and working aboard sailboats in the British Virgin Islands. Over 6 summers with Sail Caribbean, a summer camp for teens, Ish served as captain, fleet captain, and program director. He was able to also fulfill his aspiration to work on a commercial salmon fishing boat in Alaska before finally realizing his lifelong dream of leading unforgettable charters for guests in the Virgin Islands. His time in the VI has given him outstanding knowledge of the local culture and natural treasures to be enjoyed here. He has a deep love for these beautiful islands and the surrounding waters and is excited to share this passion with each and every guest who comes aboard.

6 Star!

You two far exceeded all of our expectations! The gourmet meals and the presentations were six star. It’s hard to believe you can cook like that on a boat!  Captains mastery of making delicious and creative Island drinks had us waiting for cocktail hour every afternoon. Your willingness to work with us and cater to our every need was greatly appreciated. We have been to the BVI a number of times but every day you created new adventures and new memories. This experience has been on our bucket list for years and now you have us looking forward to doing it again with you two. Thanks for everything.

This is our first Charter and trip to the BVI, and our experience has been exceptional thanks to you too! Our daily destinations with water activities and shore excursions have been lots of fun! You are true captain and chef. Thank you for all your amazing meals made with love and so much attention to detail. I’m sure all of us have gained a pound or two! Your special drinks are delicious and thoughtful. Every meal and cocktail had a perfect presentation. Celebration of friendship and special milestones was truly enhanced by the Crew and the special touches you have provided. Many thanks.

Exceeded Expectations

This is our first charted vacation, and has exceeded our expectations! As sailors and water people, we knew we would enjoy the Water-sports and sailing, but the rest was unknown. You two have provided a five star experience in every way! We have felt loved and pampered. It has been fun hearing your stories (and your jokes) and getting to know you a bit, you do a fabulous job running this on sea hotel. We felt you accommodated our every request, set beautiful tables and made a main tropical drink. Chef extraordinaire your meals were a Michelin restaurant, quality; delicious, beautifully presented and we ate every bite. What a magical week, we will come again. Thank you so much.

Bucket List

We have been dreaming about this trip for years and planning it for over six months. While we are one of many charters, both of you have been forever woven into the tapestry of our family history when we reflect on fabulous "Bucket List" family adventures. We can't thank you enough for your hospitality, your hard work, and your company, We enjoyed every minute onboard the Southern Comfort. We wish you the very best and will miss you.

A New Bar Has Been Set!

You orchestrated the perfect week for our family. Every meal, adventure & shore excursion exceeded our highest hopes - a new bar has been set for our family vacations and I am not sure we will be able to beat this one without coming back to see you on the Southern Comfort again.

 by January 2024, Family Charter

I don't know what I expected, but it certainly was not this level of warmth and hospitality. It has been so fun getting to know you... and I should like to consider us friends. Thank you so much for making my dad's birthday. I know it meant a lot to him. You guys were so incredibly sweet.
Your attention to detail and ability to make each moment more incredible than the last is second to none. Thank you again and happy sailing,

Vacation Of A Lifetime

We are a group of four couples who have known each other for twenty years and we embarked on this USVI/BVI journey all having different levels of boating experience. This crew managed to exceed and enhance all our expectations!
Chef - The variety of menu and amazing food and presentation was exceptional. Your stealthy housekeeping did not go unnoticed. You are easygoing and welcoming, and the love you put into every meal is obvious. You are a gem!
Captain - Your knowledge of the islands and secret spots is amazing. Your love of nature and the marine world is infectious. Your relaxed and easygoing style fit perfectly with our group. Your quiet comedic timing is legendary and will always live on in our Southern Comfort quote list. You are the ultimate navigator and an outstanding captain!
Together you two make Southern Comfort the vacation of a lifetime!

Amazing Week

Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing week on board Southern Comfort. We have been wanting to visit the BVI for such a long time and couldn’t imagine a better vacation! How do you manage to entertain ages 13 - 83 and create a perfect family vacation is simply amazing.
Chef – we can’t decide which meal was the best as they were all beautiful and delicious. Thank you also for the extra special touches for the 83rd birthday meal and Father’s Day brunch.
Captain – every day was full of beautiful places, fun sails and incredible snorkeling and water sports. You knew just the right spots.
We will remember this week and the two of you always! Best wishes to you both and we hope you come visit us in Texas!
