Chris & Nikki

Chris & Nikki

Some people are just meant to live on or by the sea. There is an inner yearning that draws them there and that's just how this partnership came together. Both grew up in the north east of the US and committed themselves to "responsible" careers for much of their early adult lives. Eventually, each answered the calling of the tropics with a decision to move to the Virgin Islands. There they finally met, joined forces, and decided to pledge the their lives to exploring the Caribbean, and sharing their happiness and zest-for-life with travelers from around the world.

Captain Chris was raised in upstate New York but spent his summers in St. Thomas living aboard his dad's sailboat and exploring the islands. He broke his first sailing record at the age of 8 and never looked back. While sailing through the channel you'll often see Chris point to the summit of some remote island and proclaim "I peaked that" and he did!. BAREFOOT.

Chris has spent the last 10 years living and working in the US and British Islands, on and off boats. He has chosen endeavors that impact the health and sustainability of our environment - installing alternate power sources in the Virgin Islands where resources are especially precious; and co-founding the Caribbean Lionfish Safari group in an effort to protect the reef from invasive species. His love and connection to the Islands comes though on every charter; guests know they are experiencing something very special aboard QUEST...read more

Her passion for cooking combined with her nutrition background brings about a range of cuisine from sinful to heavenly. As the Chef aboard QUEST, Nikki designs charter specific menus that will make your mouth water. She believes great meals come from exceptional ingredients, time honored techniques, as well as experimentation with the freshest local foods and seasonal fare. Raised in a very Italian, food-loving family, her most cherished memories are of sharing time with loved ones around the dinner table. She brings that same warmth and camaraderie to every meal.

LuLu the cat is the ships mascot and normally doesn't venture out of the crew cabin while on charter.

Reviews for Quest with Chris & Nikki:

This trip has been absolutely amazing. Chris and Nikki are phenomenal! Everything was done to perfection. Can't say enough good things about our experience.

Chris and Nikki were amazing! We truly enjoyed our time spent with them. Their (Chris, Nikki & Lulu) presence and attention to detail made the trip perfect.

Quest was comfortable and well maintained. We really enjoyed the trampolines and the U-shaped couch in the aft. Many naps were enjoyed on both.

Nikki's food creations were beyond our expectations. We were never hungry. Her love for cooking was evident in her dish presentations and the deliciousness of the food.

The itinerary was perfect! We had ample time in each location. Chris was always willing to take us to shore to explore the local culture.

This was the best vacation we have ever had.

Quest is the way to travel!!!
Chris and Nikki, what a terrific charter! We had such an awesome time; from the amazing meals, beautiful locations and fantastic snorkeling to the education on sailing, exploration of the islands and the friendships we created. There is no better way to travel and no better people to spend it with. You know all the best places to go! Thanks for the great food, great drinks, great conversations and one of the absolute best vacations ever. Rest up, we will be back!!

The FUN Girls Trip
We had an AWESOME time!!
We loved the flexibility and all the extras. It was sooo relaxing and fun. The meals were sooo delicious and creative. Nikki was so nice to accommodate our "plant based with a side of bacon on everything" diet request. lol. Even in rough seas we had smooth sailing. Thank you both for such a great time in the BVI. We'll be back.

Yacht Quest customer review image
We've just had the most wonderful stay aboard QUEST for 6 days of paradise. From the swimming, bathing and snorkeling in crystal clear waters to exploring the Caves at Norman Island (rumored to be the very same written about in the book Treasure Island!) The real treasure here is this huge yacht and the attentive, knowledgeable crew. Captain Chris and Chef Nikki are just the right combination of great fun hosts and worker bees in the background making all our days wonderful while we just relax, eat, drink and indulge in the islands. The food was AMAZING and our favorite cocktails seem to magically appear just when we thought we might want one :) The Yacht itself is absolutely gorgeous. It's huge to begin with but the layout was more spacious than I'd have expected. This isn't the cookie-cutter production boats we've seen in the past - it's a custom classic and just feels special. We just loved every minute of it. Thank you!

I will never forget the days of pure bliss we spent sailing and diving the British Virgin Islands on the beautiful Catamaran Quest with our friends and gracious hosts, Captain Chris and Chef Nikki. The yacht was extraordinarily comfortable. Our cabin was roomier than I could have imagined and we slept the sweetest sleep and woke up to the most beautiful sunrises. What a feeling to start the day with a refreshing swim and Nikki's amazing breakfast! Chris and Nikki took us to some incredible secret diving sites that were teeming with fish and healthy coral. I am an underwater photographer and always looking for abundant and healthy marine life. We really appreciated how well Quest was set up for divers. The aft diving deck is roomy and a great place to easily get into dive gear. Entry and exit was super easy, which was much appreciated by this lazy diver with creaky knees. In between dives we ate so much of Nikki's gourmet cooking, took naps on the big trampoline up front, listened to favorite music on a great sound system, went ashore and explored the different islands. It was just The ultimate relaxation trip! The two things that really sets Quest apart from other charter catamarans is that Quest is surprisingly well laid out making the onboard experience unusually comfortable, even with a group of 6 passengers. Secondly, the crew, Nikki and Chris, are, besides being true professionals, some of the nicest, most easygoing, warm, fun and welcoming people we ever met! They did absolutely everything to keep us in a zone of pure bliss throughout the entire charter. If you get a chance to spend some time on beautiful Quest, do not hesitate! This is a unique experience quite in a class by itself, a euphoric dream that surpassed all our expectations. We can't wait to go back again!

I went on the Quest with my boyfriend and we absolutely loved it! We traveled around the USVI's and the BVI's and had a new experience everyday. We had the opportunity to scuba dive, explore caves, relax on the beach, experience the towns on land, and so much more. Nikki and Chris were wonderful hosts, not to mention the food was delicious! They were incredibly knowledgeable about the islands and were very accommodating. To top it all off, there was an entire family of dolphins that were riding on the waves from bow of the boat to welcome us home to St Croix on our last day. This trip was unlike any other and an invaluable experience.

I would have never dreamed of taking a trip like this and now I cant wait to do another. The catamaran was beautiful, extremely comfortable and well appointed. I had never slept on a boat and was a little anxious about it, but sleeping was great.The Crew, Nikki and Chris started out as strangers and I now consider them friends. The views were over the top amazing every day of the trip just got better and better and when you thought it couldn't get any more serene than this, something else would come in to view. From the fish to the snorkeling, to the islands and then the food. All I can say is WOW! If you ever get the chance to take a trip on Quest don't pass it up. It's a once in a lifetime experience that no one should miss.
