Chef

Chef Melissa Neidlinger has always had a passion with food, and after graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s degree she earned her Culinary Arts degree from the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Chicago. It was there that Mel was able to turn her passion into a career. After a few Chicago winters, however, she was ready to trade in her snow boots for flip flops, and that’s just what she did. Even more fortuitous, she was able to find a venue in which to channel her love of cooking in the Caribbean: cooking on charter yachts.

Mel enjoys cooking just about everything! She has a deep appreciation for all cuisines; be it comfort food from her own Midwest roots, to international zest, to healthy and light. Mel’s favorite way to cook is to take something “ordinary” and add a special flair to make it stand out from the norm.

Of course, working on a boat in the islands would not be as fun if she didn’t enjoy the activities! Mel loves scuba diving, snorkeling, waterskiing, and just floating in the water. Mel looks forward to meeting you soon and showing you what she enjoys doing most: cooking delicious meals for others!

Children of all ages are welcome aboard Eclipse!

Unbelievable trip and experience of a lifetime with 5 star food! Jack, Jaimey and Mel are a warm, friendly and fun crew. The service was never forced but always present. We all connected with you in a very genuine way. So, it was only natural that you became part of our trip and daily fun. Thank you Jack, Jaimey and Mel for the best trip our family had the opportunity to experience.

The boat was incredible. Waking every day to a gorgeous port, taking a morning swim, a fabulous breakfast and planning our next adventure with Jack was a great way to start the day.

You truly customized the trip to our interests, desires and however we felt at the moment. You catered to our spontaneous desires - "swim call" and fit in perfectly with our nightly euchre games. You were also terrific with the kids who I know appreciated Jaimey's guided snorkle trips and Captain Jack's water sport time. Then, it was always great returning from an activity to one of Mel's fabulous afternoon snacks.

We had been to the BVI before and in many ways you made us feel like it was our first time! We will be back and can't imagine sailing with anyone other than your crew.

You all have exceeded ournmexpectations! We all had such an amazing time! We never wanted for anything from the delicious meals to the many find and varied activities we were always happy! We appreciated all of your recommendations of great things to do, and your ability to find new experiences for us, since we have visited the BVI's a few times before.

We would recommend you all to anyone visiting the BVI and we would never want another crew for ourselves. We enjoyed having a crew of 3, so you were able to spend lots time with us!
We are sad to leave the week went too fast. We will miss you!

Holly and I have been excited about coming aboard the Eclipse for nearly a year now. When our friends told us about Captain Jack and Jaimey and the catamaran experience we were ready to sign up. As we got closer we were abet concerned that the trip may not live up to expectations. You know when you are excited for something for a long time and have those high expectations, many times the experience does not live up to it. As soon as we took our dinghy ride to meet the Eclipse, we realized our concerns were way off base. Not only were Captain Jack and Jaimey attentive and helpful but, most importantly, they made us feel like family and members of the Eclipse crew.

Waking each day to another fabulous meal followed by "Storytime" and our plan for the day ahead just made the experience that much more incredible. Each day we sailed and explored somewhere new and just when you thought things couldn't be more fun and beautiful, the next day arrived. Each meal was expertly prepared and would have made any world renowned chef envious of their quality and presentation. We actually dared to eat off the yacht one night to have some world famous spiny lobster at Anegada Island. While the lobster was fantastic, our entire group decided we were not going to cheat on Jaimey again as her meals were superior to even that lobster. Our only regret for the entire trip on the Eclipse was that it had to come to an end. Eventually the real world came back to haunt us and as we headed home, we knew we would be back. We were not just leaving a crew behind on the Eclipse, we felt we were leaving behind family. Until next time, we wish you both happy sailing and we're looking forward to our next adventure.

How did you enjoy your charter and crew?: Fantastic time. They accommodated our active lifestyle very well. Whatever craziness we were up for was fair game. As experienced, active water people, they gave us the appropriate freedom to explore while providing guidance to ensure safety.

Was the yacht clean, well maintained and comfortable?: New boat and the crew keeps it spotless. Very well maintained.

Quality of meals?: You taste the personality and care of Mel in the meals. She aimed to prepare food she thought we would like and hit the mark: fresh, clean and flavorful. We are generally not big dessert eaters but she cured that.... Great job on the food.

Would you take another charter in the future and where? Absolutely. We will definitely consider another trip on the Eclipse!!!

Suggestions for the boat or crew? Not really. They did a great job and the boat was perfect for us. They adapted to our desire for fun/casual interaction with lots of play time.

Reviews for Jack, Jaimey & Melissa aboard previous yachts:

We had a fantastic cruise, Jack and Jaimey are outstanding and we would highly commend them. Blue Moon is also a great boat.
