Captain Chris Robinson was born in St Thomas in 1971. Educated in Florida, his love of the Caribbean and his homeland brought him back to the Virgin Islands in 2002. After earning his USCG 50 Ton Master License, Chris began to pilot day charter yachts and term charter yachts.
Chris is a certified SCUBA diver, an avid fisherman and can show you all the great snorkel spots in and around the Virgin Islands - he has an extensive knowledge of the local flora and fauna.
Chef / mate Alexis Garrison learned to cook at a young age in her parents' restaurant in Mississippi. She spent her summers with her grandparents on the Gulf Coast where she was enrolled in a sailing school by the age of 7. Her family sold the restaurant and relocated to the Caribbean when Alexis was 18.
Alexis has experience sailing through the South Pacific and Asia. She spent a year aboard a whale watching boat in Hawaii but always returns to her first love, the USVI. Living in St. John for the last six years Alexis has split her time between sailing with her brother and friends and working in high end restaurants.
Working as your personal chef aboard catamaran Charme is a dream come true. Alexis can't wait to share not only her love of great food but also her favorite part of the world, the Caribbean.
Our family just returned from St. Thomas yesterday, and I just wanted to tell you what an incredible week we had. The vessel was outstanding, beautiful, roomy and nicely appointed. Our captain Christopher was terrific and Nicole was a sweet heart, not to mention a fantastic chef.
We fell in love with them both and miss them much. We saw amazing things while snorkeling (sea turtles, octopus, really cool eels, and a zillion other colorful fish and coral). The weather was perfect and sailing was dream like.
Catamaran Charme cradled us to sleep in the evenings. Our daughters (14 year twins) were amazed and completely content with everything and that's big! I knew we would have a great time but I must say our vacation far exceeded my expectations. We hope to do it again next year. Thank you for everything.
