Tim Miller

Crew Trivia:

Tim has lived on boats for more than 1/2 of his life!!

Julie is a running "Cheetah" and is more than happy to show you our beautiful trails!

During the "off-season," when hurricanes threaten, we put McGregor II in the boatyard and head to the mountains of Evergreen, Colorado!

Captain Tim Miller hails from Colorado, where he graduated from C.U. with a degree in Biology. He has been teaching SCUBA diving since 1979 and is a certified instructor with PADI, NAUI, SSI and CMAS certifications. He spent six years teaching diving worldwide, including Mexico, Tahiti, the Red Sea and extensively throughout the Caribbean. With Tim, your snorkel and dive experiences will always be safe, relaxed, and unforgettable.

Capt. Tim has had his 100-ton U.S. Coast Guard license since 1986, when he departed the mainland and headed toward the Virgin Islands. After exploring these magnificent islands, he set up home base in St. Thomas aboard McGregor I and began showing family, friends, and guests the hidden treasures of the Caribbean. An avid sailor as well, Tim has made two Trans-Atlantic crossings on 100' sailboats. His other interests include horses, hiking, snow skiing, and running a small adventure camp for children.

Chef Julie Brown has been exploring the many coves of the Caribbean Sea for the past 15 years. Living in Southern California's wine country, Julie's culinary education specialized in the elegant balance of nutritional foods and fine wines. Her cuisine features fresh fish, tropical fruits & vegetables and, of course, mouth-watering desserts, such as the Captain's favorite, wild berry cheesecake. ..read more

Before joining McGregor, Julie's background in catering and her love for the sea lured her to the warm, blue waters of the Virgin Islands. Her interest in the underwater world began during her years at Mary Baldwin College and the Duke University Marine Laboratory. During her final year at the Marine Lab, she passed her days studying and training octopuses. An avid snorkeler and certified SCUBA diver, Julie is always on the lookout for her old eight legged friends.

Julie completed her culinary training at

Cook Street School of Culinary Arts!

Together, Tim and Julie make a fantastic team! They have been working on McGregor II for the last 14 years. Their extensive knowledge and love of the Virgin Islands ensures that you will have the best vacation of your life. While developing their charter yacht business, they have maintained and upgraded the McGregor so that it is now one of the finest vessels in the Caribbean charter fleet. Their success in the charter world is reflected by their repeat clientele! Over 80% of their guests have been back to charter McGregor at least 3 times!!

 Exceeded Our Expectations - New Years 2016/17
We could use those "warm' regards - it was -1 when we got home last night!

Our holiday on McGregor exceeded our expectations; which says a lot considering how excited we were for this vacation! The McGregor was beautiful - so lovely and well maintained. The pictures of the interior of the boat didn't do justice to the gorgeous wood!

We had a blast and Tim did a great job of helping us to set an itinerary each day. The girls loved diving with Tim and snorkeling was definitely everyone's favorite! Tim and Julie both went above and beyond and made us feel really special.

Julie's food was out of this world! She did a great job of serving meals that everyone loved - and they were healthy!! As a family with 2 in college (and full-time jobs during the summer) and 1 busy in high school we really don't share meals very often. Meal time was my favorite time - we enjoyed delicious food that everyone loved and we ate together (AND I didn't have to cook!).

At the end of our stay Tim asked us if we had any suggestions. We thought hard about it and we honestly couldn't think of a single thing that would have made our trip more special (well, Libby did say she couldn't get enough of Julie's bread:). My only frustration was my own fault... I'm ashamed to say I over packed. If only I stuck to your packing list!!

Thank you once again for all your help. We look forward to working with you again as well!

Happy New Year!

 Cant Imagine a Better Experience ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have lost count but I think I have had the pleasure of spending 6 weeks on the McGregor II. It has surpassed all of my expectations on every level. The food beyond amazing, the beauty above the water incredible, the life below breathtaking. Our every need is always catered to, from dietary restrictions, daily activities, and music selection. The Captain is a Dive Master and he literally held my hand for two years until I was comfortable and ready to dive on my own. The years that I have chosen to travel to other destinations have left me wishing I had spent my vacation dollars and time on the McGregor II. I wont miss out this year.

Julie and Tim,

Just wanted to say thanks again for a great trip a few weeks ago. We have not stopped talking about how unique and wonderful the trip was.

We are trying to convince Christine to go back again for her 50th b-day trip in 2 years. Hopefully, we would be allowed back on board and we dont get the We are booked statement.

You were both great hosts and we were extremely impressed with Julies cooking abilities and Tims serving skills you got all the foods correct and didnt spill one thing even with the McGregor swinging in the wind as it did especially on Friday night. The boat is in great great shape and runs like a charm all 45 tons of her.

We watched the video from everyone singing happy birthday and cannot believe how drunk and awful we sounded. It must have been worse for you and Julie considering you were sober (we think!!!).

I will make sure Tim and Tracie send you guys the box of goodies as promised for those slow days in port.

When you get a moment, even if that means waiting to the off season, we would appreciate if you can send the following recipes:

Ribs and BBQ sauce

Dressing from the salad on rib day

Tiramisu cupcakes

We are in Florida this week and will be making a jugful of Pain Killers for the beach. However, we will not make them Julie Strong because we are back in the states and her drinks exceed the legal limit!!!!

Take care and thanks again.

 Great time in the VI on McGregor II ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We have been on McGregor II numerous times and have never been disappointed. Tim & Julie work so well together they make the whole experience delightful and fun. Chef Julie not only serves awesome food but her presentation is OUTSTANDING! She makes it look so easy. Captain Tim, having lived in the Virgin Islands for 30 years, knows the area very well. Water activities are abundant; snorkeling, paddle board, kayaks, scuba, etc. Tim is a master diver and is very patient with first time divers. Julie is also a scuba diver so both make you feel very comfortable in the water. McGregor II is in A-1 condition due to their hard work. If you want to have a great time, book McGregor II...you will not be disappointed!

 New Year Charter
Our trip was amazing. It exceeded every expectation. All 4 of us are in a deep dark depression being back at home (lol)!!!! Tim and Julie were terrific! I can't really say there would be any point of criticism - we had a most wonderful time. Julie's cooking was first rate, from the breakfasts to desserts and every single thing in between. Tim was fun to have around, he was wonderful with the kids and seemed to (almost) enjoy entertaining them as much as they enjoyed him! Really, it was a perfect fit from our point of view! Thanks for all your help with this vacation, it will be one we will never forget!!!

You guys havent lost the joy in life!

Tis clear you love what you do. We hope you two and McGregor II will be cruising the Caribbean for years and years to come. We enjoyed celebrating our in-laws Keith and Sharons B-Days and 25th Anniversary. The kids, Gianna, Milana and Heston really have experienced the best the islands have to offer with you - Lee and I also loved living The Life for a few days and more than a few rum punches. Thanks for making our memories of this time on the planet earth AWWWSOMMME!!!

We love Yall - God Bless you both - Safe journeys always!

Dear Captain Tim and Julie,

What a week! Between all the snorkel adventures, excursions, swimming, jumping off the boat, beautiful beaches, and memorable bar trips (what may or may not have gone down at the Willy T). Im sure my family and I will have no shortage of great stories/memories from our week on McGregor. Not to mention Julies world class cooking every day. I think it is safe to say we were pretty spoiled, and Id be lying if I said I was looking forward to heading back to icy upstate NY. We shared a lot of stories and laughs, and there were definitely some wild nights. But normal is boring, right Captain Tim? Thank you so much for a great time! Hope to see you both again soon!

Dear Captain Tim and Chopper Cheetah,

WOW! How do we begin to thank you both for the BEST family vacation ever?! From the moment we first stepped aboard McGregor II, we know this was going to be outstanding. There were so many highlights that I could mention but I would fill your book. But the greatest part was experiencing it all with you both. Thank you for sharing your love of life, Sittin on Candy, grace, superior boating knowledge, respect for the sea and all its inhabitants and of course your religion. We feel blessed to know you and hope we can meet again. Please let us know if you ever come to Atlanta. Again, thank you so much...be good, stay safe and keep Sittin on Candy:...its working for you.

Cest Magnifique!!-Dont know how we could possibly better this adventure but we are going to try- we are coming back next year. I have never seen such beauty as we have this week- and we have done this nine times swimming with tarpon with Julie as big as we were getting over the fears of the water thanks to Tims expertise and assurances made for such a different pleasurable experience. The food was wonderful, so beautifully presented and so lovingly prepared to our likes. Thank you for a mega grand scale week on the charming and lovely McGregor. With love, smooth sailing and signing off until next year.

The Wegmans

 Andrew and Ann

In confirmation of our telephone call, we would like to confirm that we had a great time, and our only complaint was that we didn't book more days.

The boat is great, and is much more spacious than bigger sailing yachts. Having an outside dining room made meal times special, and the food was wonderful. Julie made everything herself, even the bread, and never 'bought in' anything, even the pastry was prepared fresh.

Tim had a badly sprained knee and was not as mobile as he would normally be. However, he and Julie compensated by sharing all duties, and neither one of them let this interfere with giving us a good time.

They are a very happy couple, and very into each other. Both were happy and smiling from the time they got up to the time we went to bed, remarkable when you take into account the pain Tim was in.

As you know, my 18 year old son came with us. We thought he would be bored as we tend not to go ashore. He had the time of his life, swimming and snorkling, and Timm taught him to water ski, up to getting onto one ski, and to scuba dive to a depth of 60 feet. His best vacation ever - his words, not ours.

Ann and I were slightly less energetic, but spent a lot of time snorkling and kayaking, and because Tim and Julie own the boat, everything works and is in first class condition. As someone who has owned three boats, from 28' to 43', I hate going on a boat which is not in good order. I have hired boats with berths, with or without crew, on the Broads, Loch Ness, the Shannon, Corfu, Florida and BVI, and can honestly say that McGregor is far the best, and after four tours of the BVI, both the boat and the crew were far better, even though we do not have any complaints about the rest.

Whether a booking is for two or four adults, or a family with children of any age, this one is the best, and we will be going again next year. We are also interested in a hire in the Med., and would appreciate any information on this, as I have convinced Ann that boating holidays, with a crew, is the best way to go.

Praise also has to go to you. Both of you are well in tune with your Client's needs, and work hard to ensure we have a good time. Thank you.

 MacKillops Family, December, 2004
Tim and Julies charters on McGregor II provide all the hoped for activities and amenities, but also so much more that is special and unique. Our two vacations with them have been perfect family getaways in all respects. They are the consummate hosts to adults and children. Yes, the boat is very spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. Yes, Tim knows all the best snorkeling, diving, sunning, and exploring spots, and plans the trip with us to minimize the sea time it takes to get there. Yes, Julies meals, snacks and desserts are out of this world, creative, using the freshest ingredients and making a gorgeous presentation. Yes, the bar and coolers are always well stocked. Yes, Tim is a fabulous instructor in all water sports, including snorkeling, diving, screaming, skiing, kayaking, and both Tim and Julie are insatiable card/board game players extraordinaire. Yes, the water gun arsenal is impressive and Tim makes sure there are many opportunities to test it. Yes, Tim is a calm and expert boatman and Julie a perfect first mate! Yes, Wed never charter with anyone else. BUT, how many trips also include helping our children retrieve a ripe coconut from an island, and cracking it in the spirit of castaway survivors. Or night snorkeling to Jethro Tulls Aqualung, live dancing around the boat to Santana and marathon games of Scattagories, Taboo, Cards, Pick-up-Sticks and charades. Or, Julie taking us hiking to incredible panoramic views. Or Tim making certified divers of us. Chartering McGregor II is a wonderful combination of gracious hospitality, meticulous service and zany camaraderie. Thank you Julie and Tim. Our family is better for the experience and we look forward to many more to come!

This was an awesome trip! I loved Julies cooking. Screaming was great! It was cool getting up on water skis. Jumping off the top of McGregor was awesome. My brother and I set a new record jumping off McGregors top deck. I jumped 63 times and my brother jumped 66 times. We had an awesome trip! THANK YOU!!!

P.S. Screaming is the source! Itll change your life!

This was a week to remember! It was greater than we could ever imagine. Thank you for all you did for us. We truly felt cared for. Tim, you make a great reverend! Thanks for assisting in the renewal of our vows on our 50th Anniversary. Julie, you are a super chef and gracious hostess. You and Tim make a great team. Thanks again!

 Orman charter

After an entire week on board, Im still trying to figure out where the boat elves are stowed! We dont know how you manage to facilitate, arrange, and take care of everything while getting in the way of nothing! Weve had the most fun and relaxing trip of our lives, all due to you two. There are many fabulous boats, maybe even one or two as cool as McGregor II, but no way is there a crew like Captain Tim and Julie! Absolutely unbelievable food, Julie and Tim, we cant thank you enough for all your expertise on toys, diving, beaches and general fun! Cant wait to come back.

Julie and Tim Thank you so much for an absolutely incredible holiday. We both agree that it has been the best vacation weve ever had. We leave the McGregor knowing that of all the choices we could have made to celebrate our 25th anniversary, we made the best choice possible. The both of you were charming and gracious in every way. Everything Nautical and Nice the both of you.

 It didn't take long for the relaxation of our spring break trip to wear off. We jumped right back on the busy Atlanta tread mill and I've not had a chance to respond to you about the McGregor. Sorry about that.
 
It was one of the best family vacations we have ever had. I've never been so relaxed. Captain Tim & Julie immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. Julie created wonderful meals. It was so nice not having to make decisions about the simplest things like meals for a week. Tim was great with the girls and had the eagerness of a camp director. He was good about explaining the options of the day and letting us pick things and places we would like to do and see. He took us to the best beaches, snorkeling spots and hikes. The McGregor is a great boat and just the right size for us. It was a pleasure to see and hear how much Tim loves his boat and career. We had a fantastic family experience and would highly recommend Tim & Julie & the McGregor to others looking for a special vacation.
 
Hope you had a good break with your family and I'm sure Ill talk to you soon.
