Colleen & Matt
Captain Colleen Korona
Having first arrived in the Caribbean on a private sail boat years ago, Colleen traveled and explored the waters of the Virgin Islands for over a year before immersing herself in the charter business. This is Colleen's 5th year running term charters and she knows where to go, when to go, and what is offerd at the various hotspots around the BVI sailing itinerary. She has all of the skills and passion to provide an exciting and memorable experience for Nadiya's guests.
Chef Matt Proto
Chef Matt has been cooking and creating in the kitchen for as long as he can remember and has spent most of his adult life in the hospitality industry. Matt has worked in every environment from fine dining to food trucks. Growing up in Florida, he spent as much time in the water as he did on land, either surfing, wake boarding, fishing ,scuba diving or doing any other activity that involved getting wet!. So when Matt landed in the Virgin Islands, it was no wonder that he felt right at home!
Matt immediately developed a passion for sailing and decided right away to combine his love of food with his love of the ocean, and began the next chapter in his life as a charter boat chef. Matt has also been an avid scuba diver for the last ten years and is currently a PADI Certified Dive Instructor. So when he's not in the galley cooking lobster, he's underwater looking for them!
Matt has spent the last two years exploring the reefs of both the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and knows his way around the best dive spots. He is also a certified Captain and holds a USCG 100 ton Master's license..read more
Captain Colleen and Chef Matt worked together in 2014 aboard a very busy Tall Ship sailing charter completing 20 week-long charters back to back - all while maintaining great service with humor and enthusiasm, providing amazing food, and ensuring that their guests had a totally amazing experience!
Colleen and Matt are Nadiya's dynamic duo with the perfect complement of skills to show guests the time of their lives

Colleen your masterful boat handling compared with the captains on the high seas and we were never disappointed with the stops chosen, and your desire to make sure we were satisfied was another positive.
Your knowledge of the area helped us to do the things we hoped to do. The snorkeling was fun and enabled us to see things weve never seen before. The Baths were spectacular as were the hiking trails. Both of you created a memorable week for us in so many ways. Your personalities cheered and motived us to attempt so many things. Every day was a new adventure that helped us to enjoy sailing as well as learning something about this part of theCaribbean. Thanks to both of you for giving us an unforgettable time with you and the boat.

Colleen and Matt are so great together and such a fun, engaging, gracious couple that we really REALLY hope theyll still be up for having us back next year. ~Julia Nord and family
The yacht was comfortable and clean. I must say I spent more time on the back of the boat then actually in the boat. The weather was great and the breeze kept things cool. As one picks what boat to be on I know pictures can be deceiving, and I don't put a lot of stock into them. While the boat was very nice, I would have traveled in a row boat with Colleen and Matt.
I can't imagine going to the islands and not being on a boat after this trip. One of the most stressful things about traveling for me is making sure the family is having fun and being fed good meals and not just junk food. Matt was a master in the galley. Who would have ever known you could have such beautifully presented and deliciously tasting food on a boat.
I had never sailed before and had no idea what to expect. Being able to turn travel, tours, sightseeing, and dining over to someone else is the ONLY way I will ever go back to the Islands. Colleen followed the kids around in the dinghy when they were sailing a little Hobie cat. She was so encouraging and they still talk about how they were stuck and going nowhere until she showed them what to do. Matt taught the kids how to knee board. Very patient and encouragin g as he went around and around again and again until they finally got it. You cannot go wrong with this pair. Thank you Colleen and Matt for an AWESOME experience. ~Toby Carmichael and Kids
Matt is a fantastic chef and was great with our kids as well - making them feel like chefs themselves, taking them snorkeling or just floating around on the lillipad. The food he prepared was amazing and he was always proactive in caring for our food/beverage needs.
I can not say enough good things about them and our experience in the BVIs - Colleen and Matt made our vacation unforgettable!! We consider them family now! ~Jim and JeanMarie Bridget, Morgan and Lauren
We were delighted each morning with healthy and beautifully plated breakfast, with local fruits each day. Matt introduced us to the many flavors of the Caribbean. Service was impeccable with beautiful place settings, great island cocktails and always gourmet entrees.
We were totally spoiled!My husband and I felt very confident with our captain as she showed us some amazing places in the BVIs. I could go on and on but I just wanted to shout out how experienced and knowledgeable our crew was in making our vacation one of the best!" ~Elisabeth
This was the best vacation we have had. The places we visited on this trip were absolutely beautiful! It has been relaxing and so much fun, too. Matt's food was awesome, and you guys were the best hosts. We cant wait for the next sailing vacation with you both!

Jamie and I feel like we have made two new friends!Thanks for helping us plan this trip! We could not be happier!
Jim and sherry were wonderful! They made the trip! We all felt very comfortable with them, very friendly and laid back. Could not have asked for anything better.
Nadiya was perfect. Very clean and decorated nicely. Ventilation was not a problem, perfect sea breezes through our hatch.
The food was amazing! Every meal and snack and dessert was very tasty with great presentation.
Every day and everywhere they took us just got better and better as the week went on!
Sailing Directions was very attentive and timely with emails and responses. I wish I could go again!
