John and Lisa met while working in London for a large charity helping children in need. Three years ago they gave up London's city life to work and travel through out Central America and the Caribbean, eventually settling in the British Virgin Islands.
They are a relaxed and friendly couple who will make you feel instantly at ease as they guide you through the azure waters of the BVI to unspoiled shores, secluded coves and sun drenched beaches.
John has always had a love of the ocean. A native of England with Irish and Scottish Heritage, John started sailing at the tender age of 11 and has been on the sea in some way ever since. He holds a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster ticket and has sailed extensively around the British coastline, Europe and the Caribbean.
John is also an experienced dive instructor and has, for the past two years, managed a dive shop in the British Virgin Islands where he has acquired an intimate knowledge of the islands both above and below the waterline.
He enjoys tailoring his extensive experience of the islands and their attractions to the individual tastes of his charter guests. His easy going nature blends naturally with the Caribbean way of living and his consummate professionalism will ensure your Caribbean adventure is safe as well as fun.
Lisa grew up by the Devonshire coastline in the South of England. She trained in the nearby Ashburton Culinary School in fine cooking and has worked in restaurants in London and Central America. She is an Advanced Open Water diver with a keen interest in marine life.
Lisa is a warm and enthusiastic crew member who is devoted to preparing creative, delicious meals at every sitting. She is dedicated to making your time on Genesis II a breathtaking experience and is always ready to run the extra mile to make your time on board an enjoyable one.
We had a great time and the vacation was everything that we wanted. We really enjoyed the entire itinerary, it was a great mixture of sailing and stopping on good beaches, some good water sports and we really enjoyed the diving.
John was fantastic, a great sailor and dive master, very natural and pleasant person, good fun, very hard working, very safety conscious, always trying to please us.
John was very good at getting us involved with the sailing and we all enjoyed this. John is a great dive master, we greatly enjoyed the diving and felt very safe with him. We had great laughs with the fishing.
