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 20's. 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 125'chartered 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 WOW's her guests.See reviews

We had a great time hanging out with you guys and seeing the islands. This has to be one of the best trips we have ever taken: great food, gorgeous views, and good times.
Hope you guys are well and enjoyed some much needed time with family.

Thank you so much for the map with our itinerary! We had such a great time with you both.
Maddy is now in Washington DC with Caleb and Emily and Morgan came for dinner last night. They still havent given me photos of the trip However, here is one from my phone.
Take care and best to you both,
Rosemary and Neil
I Cannot believe it has been 2 months since our trip!! I apologize for being so late to write you a note back!!! Crazy how we go back into reality so quick.
All the amazing memories came back this past weekend when I got my shuttle fly photo album I made from the trip arrived in the mail!! The photos are so good and boy, am I glad I did my little journal each day of where we sailed, and little events we had along the way!!
When I tell other people who have been on similar trips, about our adventure and the two of you, WE TOTALLY had the Best time!!!! We were so fortunate and we thank you both for making that happen. We can't wait to hear from you and when we can start to look at making plans for our trip we discussed for next year.
Not sure if Dilep, Cheryl or Steph have sent you a note yet, but I know we all had an incredible week!!
I hope you are both doing great!
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.
