Jeff & Valerie
Captain Jeff Black was born in central California where he grew up spending most of his time in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. He discovered his love for sailing in Key West Florida in his early 20s. Jeff received his 100 ton, sailing, and towing endorsed USCG captains license at the
age of 23. He ran his own offshore delivery Skipper business for the past 10 years bringing yachts all over the Atlantic seaboard and the Caribbean. Jeff has also worked as Chief Mate on a 125chartered Motor Yacht. He has an
abundance of experience in hospitality in both high end and day charters. Jeff has three wonderful children that he is very proud of. He has happily settled in St. Thomas, and is excited to take the helm on The Black Pearl.
Chef/First Mate/Master Diver Valarie Hughes was raised by the ocean on the West Coast of Florida and relocated to St. Thomas five years ago once her children were grown. Her
background in the hospitality industry along with her great love of the water made her perfect as the hostess aboard many high-end day sail charters. Her passion for the water extends to sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding. As a Dive Master she loves to share the majestic beauty of the underwater world. Wanting to further her time on Yachts she began freelancing on term charter Yachts, where she discovered her true calling. Valarie prepares her meals with love and enthusiasm - from organic and very healthy to southern and comforting - Valarie can cook anything and continuously WOWs her guests.See reviews

We had an absolutely fantastic time exploring the BVI aboard the Black Pearl. Tim and Valerie were truly gracious hosts - just genuinely wonderful people to spend a week with. Their knowledge of the islands is impressive and their ability to avoid the crowds proved remarkable as they shared some of their favorite secluded spots with us. The food was consistently delicious, delightful and professionally presented.
Tim and Valerie also kept a map detailing our itinerary that we were meant to take with us when we disembarked. Naturally, we forgot to take it. They brought it up to our hotel along with a thank you note. They really went above and beyond.
Our entire family agrees this was one of the best vacations we've ever taken. We'll definitely be back, next time we'll be scuba certified and we'll seek out Tim and Valerie to be our guides.
