Bryan & Ava
Captain Bryan and Mate Ava welcome you aboard Port to Vino, bringing their upbeat personalities, youthful enthusiasm and a great skill set to please and entertain their guests.
Entering into his fourth season, Bryan has quickly become one of the best and most popular young skippers in the BVI charter scene.
Bryan is a New Englander who has a strong background in the marine industry on Block Island. Bryan holds a USCG 100 Ton Master license, and has sailed throughout the Caribbean. He is a graduate of the University of Maine and has trained at the Maine Maritime Academy. With a chef for a father, Bryan grew up in the culinary world and has worked under top chefs such as Drew Nicastro and Trip Pearce and is as passionate about cooking as he is about sailing. Bryan is an experienced fisherman and a PADI Divemaster who loves sharing his knowledge of the ocean with guests.
With his easy smile, air of professional competence, and sense of fun and adventure, Bryan always gets rave reviews from his charter guests. He is familiar with all the local highlights, but can also direct you to those quieter anchorages and hidden gems the BVI has to offer.
Ava, a Texas A&M , is an experienced ocean sailor with over 6000 offshore miles including an Atlantic crossing and time in the Caribbean and in the Med. She is also an accomplished dinghy racer and was co-captain of the Texas A&M varsity sailing team.

With culinary training at the renowned Onion Creek Kitchens at the Juniper Hills Farm in the Texas Hill Country, Ava will be sharing chef duties with Captain Bryan. We think Port to Vino's guests will enjoy the menu and style variety that Ava brings to supplement Bryan's wonderful food creations.
Ava is talented in a myriad of water sports, including scuba, snorkeling, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and wake-boarding, and enjoys introducing Port to Vino's guests to these sports.
Ava and Bryan enchant everyone they meet, and they are sure to delight their guests aboard Port to Vino!

Bryan and Ava were great with a nice mixture of being attentive when necessary and providing privacy other times. They were very knowledgeable and our group was constantly asking challenging questions which they answered very well. Bryan and Ava are a wonderful complimentary team!
Happy Time was very comfortable and well ventilated. A/C worked well in cabins. Favorite aspect was the spacious back-deck eating area. We played many games, drank, and dined well in that locale.
Food and variety of menu was excellent for all meals. We had a tree nut allergy amongst the party and they dealt with that perfectly. Bryan is an excellent grill master and we had several meals that were grilled to perfection (tuna steaks stand out)!
We worked closely with the crew to develop an itinerary and each day we went over options based on different preferences in our party. Worked great!
Sailing Directions is always our first stop when looking at chartered yacht vacations. We have always had good service and specifically John Lane’s communications and support is top notch! I am frequently giving Sailing Directions contact information out to anyone expressing interest.
