Gio, Renee & Jeff
Gio is a knowledgeable and friendly Captain who enjoys connecting people with the sea. Born and raised in London, his career began teaching sailing and windsurfing all over the world, before moving to Australia to become a marine biologist, conducting research and guiding marine wildlife tours. Eventually he bought his own 50ft sailboat and used it to sail documentary filmmaking expeditions thousands of miles around the Caribbean, resulting in work published by National Geographic. He is also an expert freediver and a PADI Divemaster. Gio takes great pride in ensuring the highest levels of safety onboard while helping guests to have the adventure of a lifetime.
Renee is a friendly Colorado girl passionate about creating healthy, first class dining experiences. After completing her degree in Education, she spent time teaching both physics outdoor pursuits. She has been working onboard sailing yachts for several years, mostly in the British Virgin Island and is also a PADI Dive Instructor. Renee places huge importance in connecting with each individual guest onboard her vessel, in order to identify and satisfy their own unique wants and needs. You will feel spoiled and well looked after under her care. Be sure to check out her sample menu.
Jeffrey has lived onboard boats, snorkeling, scuba diving, and exploring the island, since he was young. He is a skilled sailor and scuba diver, and works as Lolalita's PADI Dive Instructor, deckhand, dinghy-driver, dishwasher, and disco-dancer! He can't wait to fill your tanks (he swears his air tastes better than any other!) and lead you on your next dive! Jeff also holds a USCG Captain's license.See reviews

The service quality was excellent and the food even better! The boat was very clean and in great repair.
John, you were extremely helpful and prompt. I could not have ask for better service. I would use Sailing Directions again without hesitation!
Brian R, aboard Catamaran Lolalita sailing the British Virgin Islands
We loved the Lolalita and the crew. They were the best. They helped make our trip so memorable.
Lolalita was very comfortable. It was very clean and I loved how Megan attended to every detail to make sure we were well taken care.
We loved the food. Megan is a great cook and tried to meet our different preferences. We were constantly amazed of how she could come up with such delicious food.
Captain Ernie was in constant dialogue with us of what and where we wanted to go and do. He listened to our wants and tried to accommodate them as best as he could.
We weren't sure what to expect from our first crewed catamaran trip. We were very pleased with the whole trip. The Lolalita crew did all they could do to make our trip comfortable, fun and safe. We are still talking about how much we enjoyed the whole experience and especially how much we enjoyed meeting Ernie and his family. The cabins yet small but clean were very comfortable and the food was absolutely wonderful. Loved it. Ernie and Jeff were always there to lend an expert hand in assisting with our diving and snorkeling needs. The Lolalita is a beautiful catamaran and we will be back with Captain Ernie, Megan and Jeff. Thank you so much for a great trip. Will definitely recommend Lolalita.
