Capt. Richard Darling

Captain Richard hails from a small town in upstate New York near the Lake Ontario shoreline where he learned absolutely nothing about sailing! That is until he spent some college years in Daytona, then went back to NY and was fortunate enough to enter the racing scene where he purchased his own sailboat and hasn’t stopped sailing since. In 2003, Richard moved to the Virgin Islands and acquired his USCG Master’s License. Since then, he has worked in the charter industry as Captain or Engineer on various sailing and motor yachts up to 160 feet.

Calling St. Thomas home for more than 15 years. Richard has sailed thousands of miles through the islands and beyond, and he loves sharing some of the best kept secret anchorages and dive locations along the way along with his knowledge of the stars under the beautiful Caribbean night skies.

Chef Suzanne Carter

Chef Suzanne hails from Philadelphia, PA where she studied under some of the best Italian cooks on the east side. She learned at an early age that perfectly blended herbs and spices will bring your dish to the next level. Her family moved to St. Petersburg, FL where her eyes were immediately drawn to the sea. Through the years her need to be in the islands never waned nor did her desire to create mouth watering meals. Her dishes are best described as elegantly simplistic. A wide range of culinary styles beautifully blended with fresh local ingredients, a superb mixture of herbs and spices, and sprinkled with a pinch of Mama’s love will have you begging for seconds. But trust me, you are going to want to save room for dessert!

Richard & Suzanne,​ Wow! What a cruise. Our family was so lucky to be able to take a trip like this. But even luckier to have the two of you take care of us. It is amazing how two extremely professional people can also be so fun and able to blend in with our group. Suzanne – the food! I am hoping for many of your recipes – absolutely outstanding! I hope the boat owner knows how lucky he is to have you taking care of this beautiful boat. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and assistance while we were sick. If you ever find yourselves in Georgia – you are welcome.

– Best wishes,​ Linda & Jim

Richard and Suzanne,​ We loved meeting you both. Your personalities were a great compliment to our group. Having such an experienced crew like you we knew we were always safe, always went to the best spots, and always moored far away from the mosquitos! You are the perfect blend of five star service but not stuffy and engage in such a genuine way. We look forward to sailing with you again and wouldn’t want to have another sailing adventure without you.

​Richard and Suzanne,​ Thank you for making it easy for me with the diet restrictions. It was reassuring that you could work with what I could eat. Loved the variety, so many things I could eat. From when I first started taking to you about diet, I knew I didn’t need to worry. Thank you so much! It made a difference in my trip! Thank you again!

Suzanne and Richard,​ Fxxxg flawless. Literally everything from the first hello has been flawless. My expectations have been surpassed beyond belief and despite my healthy hesitation for and of the water, I can’t wait to come back. Mostly to hang with both of you. But the view is always pretty damn awesome (thanks for that, Richard).
