Captain Jacek and Chef Maya
Meet the Crew
US sailing instructor, avid diver and water sport enthusiast Captain Jacek grew up sailing since age eight where he attended St. Petersburg Sailing Center in Florida racing Optimists. In high school, he went on to race Lasers and continued racing for Florida Atlantic University where he placed top 3 in several collegiate racing regattas.
Jacek continued to find his passion on the water and began working in the marine industry; becoming a captain piloting charters from New England to the Virgin Islands. Using his intimate knowledge of the Virgin Islands and local hot spots Jacek delivers a marvelously guided sailing experience.
First Mate/Chef MayaMaya's love for water and food comes from her background growing up in the Mediterranean. After living in beautiful (but landlocked) Utah for 14 years, she finally decided to go back to her aquatic roots.
Pursuing her dream, she moved to the USVI in 2015, and spent the winter working in the service industry and on different day sailing charters. Her passions are cooking, singing, and playing the guitar. Maya believes that there is nothing better than gathering friends over plates of great food and seeing their smiles and enjoyment as they eat, talk and relax around the table. Maya looks forward to sharing her culinary passion with you, and making your experience on LoveBoat unforgettable!
Together Jacek and Maya deliver a fun, relaxing, and adventurous experience. Sit back, relax, and enjoy an adventure of a lifetime!
