Operating in the Caribbean
Raised in the affectionally sung about “Sweet Home Alabama,” Corrai was cultivated in an environment of southern hospitality and a love for the outdoors. He studied those arts that glean the greatest insight into the human condition, Philosophy with a double in Psychology, and his background there has been an enriching factor in connecting to those around him while leading a safe and memorably articulated adventure at sea.
Creativity and problem solving are his passions and these can be witnessed in his conduct from designing renaissance flavoured maps of local waters, developing his own board game, surprising island patrons with honkey-tonk piano tunes on nights out, and culminating in his ability to tailor a personalized and unforgettable charter.
Master 100 Tons
PADI Rescue Diver
Born in Poland, Martyna grew up studying the fine arts and pursuing adventure across the European Continent. She then uprooted herself for Canada where she worked and managed her father's dive shop, leading successful trips as far as Caribbean waters. Her experience as a dive instructor landed her in the Bahamas thereafter where she was able to fill every role that could be asked of her. From dive master, engineer, cook, and first mate she earned herself the well deserved nickname across the fleet as "Wonder Woman."
In her free time she can be found free-diving to impressive depths, hauling back a spearfishing bounty that would earn a nod of respect from Neptune himself, and keeping her online, 5-star reviewed photography shop well stocked with new works of art.

If you enjoy boating, this is a trip for you. We chartered the “Oui Cherie” a 52 ft catamaran out of Red Hook, St. Thomas, USVI in April 2022 for a 7 day adventure through the BVI’s.
The crew we had, Captain Corrai and First Mate Martyna were the best at everything; navigating, diving, watersports, chef and bartender. They do it all. And the food was over-the top. Beautifully plated meals every night with cocktails and dessert. Lobster rolls, tuna poke, snapper, wahoo, filet migon and the list goes on. Fresh salads and fruit and did I mention the fresh baked bread. We were in food heaven. And what a sweet couple. They really ensured a worry-free vacation, plotting the best course, reserving moorings at beautiful bays, picking out beach bars, snorkeling spots, and the best restaurant for our one night dinner on land (Saba Rock). Couldn’t get more remote than that! They checked in with us about the itinerary and options everyday. We hit so many beautiful spots in Tortola, Norman Island, Cooper Island, Saba Rock, Virgin Gorda and so on. The scenery, the bays, the fish and the ocean are so exquisite. We did not want to leave and are just waiting till we can go back again to do it all over again.
Thank you Corrai and Martyna!

Dear Martyna and Corrai
Thank you very much for looking after us on our visit to the beautiful BVI. We had a magical time: the incredible scenery, the fantastic snorkelling, the sailing, the lessons on boat craft, Bushwackers, painwackers and, of course, Martyna’s cooking were all highlights.
The real highlight though was meeting both of you. Your kindness to all of us, your calmness and above else, your sense of freedom and adventure were inspiring and it is testimony to the impact you made that several days after finishing our sailing tour you are both still the centre of all our highlights from the trip.
We will hopefully all meet again but in the interim we hope you sail on with the wind at your back and enjoy all the freedoms and passions you hold so dearly.
With our best wishes

Thank you both for such an amazing, relaxing, and refreshing vacation! From the wonderful meals t the fantastic adventures you have allowed us to make such special and meaningful memories together. We are especially grateful for your never ending patience with Davis! Just think how many times you heard, "I have a question?" over the last week ;) We wish you both all of the best in your adventures-may they be filled with sunshine and following the seas.
Eric, Lauren, and Davis
Thank you so much for creating the most relaxing and energetically replenishing experience for us all, I've never felt so accommodated for on a vacation.
Merry Christmas! I am so blessed to have a family that loves to travel and go with the flow. When searching for this vacation I was looking for a trip that required nothing from me in regards to decisions (where are we going to eat today?) Wow all the planning and prepping that is put forth for an amazing vacation with zero responsibility for this mom.
Thank you Martyna and Corrai for creating an amazing space at sea for our family to unwind, reconnect, and just have some good old fun!!
Until next time
