Jens & Ji

If you can't find Jens or Ji on board S/V Flip Flop preparing a gourmet meal or otherwise seeing to their guests, you are sure to find them nearby, in or under the water. Both have a strong passion for the freedom and adventure of sailing as well as the great outdoors and its wonders. They were both drawn to the ocean at an early age.

Originally from San Diego, Capt. Jens knew from the time of his first sailing lesson that his calling would be shaped by the sea. From Hobie Cat racing and scuba diving as a teenager, to serving as a Patrol Boat Captain in the U.S. Navy, his calling and connection to the ocean has always been there.

Once his service in the Navy was up, he immediately took up teaching sailing and delivering sailboats around the Caribbean. Eventually, he made his way onto larger luxury Yachts and found himself in places like the South Pacific, the Mediterranean and South America just to name a few.

After a few years on larger yachts, Jens decided that the more personal and friendly nature of smaller charter yachts was more to his liking. He loves one on one time with guests and teaching sailing to anyone who wants to learn.

Captain Jens has over 20,000 miles at sea. He is a U.S. Coast Guard 100 ton Master Captain as well as a PADI divemaster and is commercially endorsed as an Offshore Yachtmaster. He also has a U.S. driver's license that he never uses;)..read more

Jens looks forward to teaching you to sail. He also loves Kite Boarding and would be more than willing to take you to all of the Kite Boarding "Hot Spots" in the Virgin Islands while guiding you through the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean!

Jens and Ji have sailed and chartered together for many years. Along Eastern Seaboard of the US, and within the Bahamas, and around the Caribbean Sea. Together for many years and recently married here in the islands, these two are ready to show you the trip of a lifetime. They are a one-two punch of adventurous activity, and stellar service that will bring your charter experience to new levels.

The Peterson's met while traveling way out west in the American Rockies, and since then have been knocking on excitement's door and looking for fun in all the right places. These are two people who take learning and educating to the next level, while always striving to try new things and perfect their skills. Come aboard Flip Flop to learn new techniques or advance your experience in all of the charter activities.

Ji grew up in South Korea surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, enjoying its calming water, breezes, and seafood. She was lured by the sea, and it's mysterious charm, and eventually came to the US to study abroad and further her perspective. She has a degree in Education, and loves to incorporate that schooling into her work on board. After her studies, she spent time in the center of the world's yachting industry in Fort Lauderdale where she was certified in Super Yacht Interior Management, Hospitality, Food Hygiene, as well as Yacht Safety.

Ji has chartered on sail boats and super yachts which makes her attention to service well-rounded. Her culinary background is extensive and covers many different types of cuisine. While she prefers to experiment with Western variations in her cooking, she loves to incorporate her Eastern background providing authentic dishes like Bulgogi, Kim Chi, and fantastic Korean BBQ. Ji brings the flavors of the world to Flip Flop and to her charter guests.

Together, Jens and Ji are fantastic team, and deliver an unforgettable experience aboard the catamaran FLIP FLOP. Come down and have a blast!

Reviews for Flip Flop with Jens & Ji:

Ji, Jens and Flip Flop herself were phenomenal in every way. The five of us had the best trip of our lives and can't wait to return someday.

 Our Family enjoyed a wonderful week
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week on the Flip Flop with Jens and Ji. The food was fantastic - every meal - and we are hoping our jeans will zip up for the trip home. We were unlucky in terms of weather with very high wind and large swells. Due to this we were a bit limited to more sheltered areas. The crew did a nice job working around the weather limitations. It has been a great week of sun, snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding and especially eating! Thank you Jens and Ji.

The J Family - Appleton, WI

 Our memories are lifelong
Dear Jens & Ji,

Our family cannot thank you enough for creating an absolutely fabulous weeklong vacation aboard Flip Flop! The memories we have are lifelong, and we thank you for all you did to make that happen. The food was amazing, the boating, snorkeling, scuba, paddle boarding, etc.... was beyond our expectations. We hope our paths cross again someday.

 No words to describe the memories
Jens & Ji,

What an incredible week. There are no words to describe the memories we have made with our family. How incredibly blessed we are to be able to enjoy the magnificent beauty!! I feel as if I have been in the most amazing dream that lasted for an entire week!

Thanks, Jens, for being such an incredible Captain and playmate - especially with our kids. Watching them have new experiences thrilled my heart!

Thank you, Ji, for spoiling us with such fabulous food. It was so fun to watch and enjoy your meals... Too bad Mom has to be the chef when we return home...such a let down!!

Thank you both from the bottom of my heart for such an incredible memory. What a birthday! I will remember this week for the rest of my life!

Much Love, Sandi

 Cherished every minute...
Jens and Ji,

I've had such a blast this week... It will be a vacation I will always remember, and I have cherished every minute of it. Learning to paddle board and diving for the first time. I have seen things that I had only dreamed about in the past. Thanks for teaching me how to use our cameras and helping us capture those memories.

Ji, you have cooked some delicious food, and things that I probably never would have tried. I have now fallen in love with those experiences. Thank you again for such a wonderful week.

 Best vacation ever!!
Jens and Ji,

This was the best vacation ever!! Y'all always made sure that we were having fun! Between the snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking and paddle boarding, there was always something to do and see. Ji' food was absolutely delicious!

Thank you so much for being a part of our family for the week.

Love, Meredith

 Flip Flop did NOT disappoint!
For John & I, the most favorite part of any vacation that we ever take, is doing something "on the water" - so we knew that this type of vacation was something that was suitable to us. Flip Flop did NOT disappoint!

Jens was MOST professional; he takes his job very seriously - and as a passenger on vacation, that gave me great comfort and security - knowing that at ALL TIMES, he was appropriately responsible and professional!!!

Ji did an amazing job appealing to our taste buds; she made fantastic meals that we just devoured - and now have to work on our waistlines... or I do, anyways!! Both Jens & Ji ensured that we were not only satisfied with, but thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time on Flip Flop. They are an amazing crew!

As for the catamaran, itself, I was relieved to see that it looked "just like it did in the photos". There have been surprises in the past, where once you "see" your accommodations, somehow they look older; more "tired" than a photo represents, but not in this scenario. Flip Flop is clearly well maintained and I thought this boat was the perfect size for 2 couples and the crew. We had room - and as long as we stayed out of Ji's kitchen - when she was prepping - all good.

Donna & I were grateful that we never became the "Boat bleep, bleeps..." - we left that up to John & Larry to "mess up" and break the boat rules - haha...

We will be back...

 Absolutely great time!

The food was excellent. The BVIs are gorgeous. Would highly recommend! We are already thinking about a repeat trip next year! Thanks again!

 So much to remember, so many great memories
Remember that time:

- That time when frozen lemonade and coconut rum became the official drink of the Flip Flop

- That time when Jens took us to that really amazing spot... every day!

- That time when Yorkey cooked that amazing meal- delicious meal... 3 times a day, every day!

- That time on Anegada- what a gorgeous beach- when the rule was made "If you can't pronounce the drink, you can no longer order one!" Bushwhacked!

- That time when someone hurt their toe- oh wait... that was all of us!

- That time we stopped to dive/snorkel on a sunken ship and ended up swimming with a shark!

So much to remember, so many great memories, too many to tell here... I'll have to "tell you later!"

 The most amazing adventure- EVER!!!
The most amazing adventure- EVER!!! As a marine biologist, I truly enjoyed every expedition under water and the exploration above water- a voyage I will always remember. Thanks!! For Larry and Donna- this was their 2nd sailing experience- they stated this trip was their "FAVE"!!!

For John and Margy- this was the first... and definitely not the last! Jens and Yorkey- you were the best crew ever! We had so much fun and have you to thank. A great big Canadian hug to you!

Cheers,

John and Margy Nelson

 Best Holiday ever!!!
This week was one that will be in my top trips I've ever had on vacation. Jens and Yorkey are constant professionals yet they made us feel immediately comfortable and they are incredible fun! Jens proved just how good a Captain he is when both engines failed and he kept his cool and made fixing it all seem so easy. Yorkey made sure we had gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner every day- and I'm a foody so I know! We've done this trip many times before and they still found fabulous, fun new experiences for us. My face aches from laughing and my heart has found space for two special people in it- Jens and Yorkey :) I hope to see you somewhere in the world soon.

Hugs!

Margaret and Richard

This was our first boat trip, Jens and Yorkey looked out for us beautifully. Captain took us to some fantastic places and helped us to create great memories that we'll treasure forever. Yorkey prepared the most beautiful meals and made us feel so welcome and part of the Flip Flop family. We wish Yorkey the best of luck at gaining her Captains licence and hope that Jens enjoys a well earned break in the U.S.

Hugs and best wishes,

Carol and Andrew

Best Holiday ever!!!

Andrew

 \"The Best\" Captain and Yorkey, you guys ROCK!!
Loved every day of this trip. I know it wouldn't have been this enjoyable except with "The Best" Captain and Yorkey, you guys ROCK!! At first I had concerns about Captain always wanted to be naked. LOL!! He kept the boat fun and exciting. Yorkey is the best cook!! You made every meal with joy and love. I will keep you in my prayers that you will find a mate with the same spirit as yours. There is not enough words to express my feelings toward both of you. I will speak blessings over you forever. My prayer for Jens is that your marriage will be enjoyable, happy and full of love. Faith, hope and love and the greatest is love.

Forever and ever, your friend for life. xxxooo

Love ya'll,

David Hassell

P.S. You are always welcome if you are in the area of Texas. Please call!

P.P.S. Loved the lobster hunting and fishing. Thanks!!!

 You were wonderful hosts, guides and of course chef
Thanks Jens and Yorkey! We had an amazing time with you guys on Flip Flop. Our memories will definitely outlast any aches and pains from wake boarding, sling shooting and extreme base jump tubing :) You were wonderful hosts, guides and of course chef... the food was delicious! We look forward to coming back for a full week next time. We'll make sure we bring friends, a theme and of course extra glowsticks!!

Love, Laurie and Tim

 We had the best time
The Buckley's

We had the best time. I will never forget this amazing wedding for Mel and Marc and this vacation with you Yorkey and the Captain. You always looked out for me and fed us the most amazing meals!

Love you both, Mimi

 We really did start to feel like we were spending time with family
What a wonderful way to spend our 20th anniversary! Beautiful places, wonderful food and great company. We really did start to feel like we were spending time with family. Captain Jens went out of his way to make our vow renewal special, which we really appreciated. He was also a fabulous tour guide! Yorkey's food was amazing, her smile infectious and a joy just to hang out with! She was also a great role model for Bailey. I have a feeling she'll be talking about the fun she had with Yorkey for years to come!

Much love,

Kiel and Kristie

We had so much fun. Jens and Yorkey were so very nice and accommodating. The sailing, snorkeling and scuba were well planned. We all enjoyed it. The food was marvelous and not what we expected to have on a boat. YUM!

We don't want to leave! Love ya'll!!!

Bailey (11 yrs old): It was sweet! The only part I didn't like was nothing :) and Captain was great so was the chef she made a lot of good food! MMMM!!

 They did a great job!
We had a great time on our vacation with Jens and Ashley. For a new partnership, they did a great job! You would have thought they had been working together for a long time. Food was wonderful and plentiful, they were very flexible with us and made sure we spent time with our friends up in Bitter End. Jens was great with the kids and his energy with the hiking and water sports was really fun. Ashley and Jens made sure we saw and experienced as much as possible but in a very relaxed way. Thanks so much for all that you did to make this one of our best trips ever! Certainly it was our most relaxing.......thanks,

Shirley and Steve

 We totally enjoyed!
We totally enjoyed our sail boat vacation in the BVIs. The Flip Flop and Jens/ Ashleigh were perfect choices for our personalities and desires for this type of vacation. Very congenial, personal and near perfect hosts.
 Our trip on the FLIP FLOP was beyond any expectations!
Our trip on the FLIP FLOP was beyond any expectations! We had the most fantastic time. The boat was perfect and very comfortble for the whole family. Our every need was attended to and the crew were skilled, charming

and fun to hang with! We had wonderful dives, all learned to paddle board (one of the high lights) and used all the toys. Ashley's food was exactly to our tastes.... light, fresh, delicious! The only hard part was coming

home! and we really hope to be able to do a vacation like this again.
