Andrew & Michaela
Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela have been working on day sailing charters as Captain and Crew for 3+ years, exploring all throughout the US and British Virgin Islands. They have been spreading their passion for sailing, snorkeling, and all around adventuring to hundreds of guests from all over the world on a daily basis. Andrew and Michaela bring this same passion to the next level on Flip Flop, offering their guests an insiders look into the splendor of the Virgin Islands.
Growing up in suburban Chicago, Andrew might be considered a late bloomer in the sailing universe, but he knew his passion for the ocean was there from an early age. He moved to San Diego for college, and proceeded to take sailing lessons immediately upon his arrival. Starting off in boats hardly bigger then himself, his passion for all things ocean continued to grow as rapidly as his sailing experience in and around Southern California. Upon graduation from San Diego State University, with a degree in hospitality & tourism, Andrew decided to focus on sailing, and became a US Sailing Certified Instructor. He spent years on San Diego teaching sailors young and old the wonders of the ocean. Andrew returned to the Midwest, for years of sailing on Lake Michigan. Upon receiving his USCG Master Captains license, Andrew decided to move "Down Island" to pursue his dream of becoming a full time Captain. He is now excited to continue chasing his dream, and to share his love for all things ocean with all of his guests, as he continues to grow as a diver, surfer, chef, host, bartender, and most importantly lifetime sailor...read more

Captain Andrew and Michaela were terrific. They made this trip very special. They worked really hard to make everything work, always with a smile on their faces. Michaela cooked 3 excellent meals everyday - a lot of work! And they were always paying attention to the smallest of details. I can't stress how happy we were with them. I hope our paths cross again.
Flip Flop was in good condition, clean, all systems working properly.
Capt. Andrew made sure we hit all the spots we wanted to go, suggested great off-the-beaten-paths and interesting hikes.
With Sailing Directions, communication was easy, handling of documentation effective. We referred a friend.

I don't think it would be possible for a crew to be more friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating.
Flip Flop was indeed comfortable, clean, and well ventilated - Andrew and Michaela cleaned constantly and were quick to respond to any request. I believe that the interaction with the crew may have been everyone's favorite part of the trip.
The food was exceptional, and the menu adjusted to allow for one gluten-free and one fish-free diet. The presentation was as nice as any fine dining restaurant I have been to.
Captain Andrew did a great job. He adjusted the original itinerary to make appropriate allowance for weather and the desire of the group to spend time on beaches.
It was a great experience for all.

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.
