Jim & Sherry
Captain Jim and Captain Sherry have been traveling, sailing, diving and snorkeling together for the past 5 years. They recently spent 15 months sailing from Kemah, Texas across the Gulf of Mexico and island hopping the Caribbean chain from the Bahamas to St. Kitts where they learned to navigate the beautiful islands and have become experts at finding idyllic locations for their future guests to enjoy.
Jim is from San Diego, California where he grew up power boating Lake Havasu, fishing the Pacific and Sea of Cortez and has been surfing since a young age. He spent the first 25 years of his corporate life as an engineer building ocean going vessels. He finished his career as Director of Project Management in the oil and gas industry. Traveling the globe extensively and sailing the Caribbean has given him a knowledge and passion for meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. He has his 50 ton USCG Masters License and is a PADI certified dive master.
Sherry is from Houston, Texas. She retired after 23 years as a Legal Secretary and Administrative Assistant. Raised in the south, she learned the love of cooking and southern hospitality at an early age. She is at home in the galley, mixes a mean cocktail and looks forward to taking you to some of the best diving and snorkeling spots to be found. She has her 50 ton USCG Masters License and is a PADI certified open water diver.

We felt totally secure with Jim at the helm. Hated saying goodbye to them.
Would do the trip again in a heartbeat.

Thank you so very much for making our family vacation such an amazing week. The weather and water was perfect. The delicious meals were so elegantly presented and prepared flawlessly. I am definitely making the coconut rice as soon as we get home. Thank you for finding the perfect mooring for us each and every day. It was fun to stay at Ivan's and Soggy Dollar and New Years at Foxy's will always be memorable. It was a perefect, relaxing week.

We could not have had a better honeymoon!
Everything we needed ya'll made available to us . Also, everything we didn't know we needed. The sites, the food & the company was perfect.
Thank you for making Bitter End one of the more memorable parts of our trip.
This trip was exactly what we wanted, a a true Sirius Escape.
We can't wait to come back.
Love, Sarah and Joe
Captain Jim & Sherry -
Thank you for an amazing voyage. We could not have wished for a better trip for us and the boys....though a little less rain and a few extra days off work would have been nice!
Snorkeling the Wreck of the Rhone was a wonderful surprise. Emil enjoyed all of his snorkeling adventures with Captain Jim - the pirate caves, turtles, the eel at the aquarium were all a big hit!
The incredible views, beaches, and sailing were only rivaled by the great food. MMMM....those banana pancakes!
The memories of this trip will last a lifetime! So glad we chose Sirius Escape, Captain Jim and Sherry for this adventure.
Until next time....

Additional comments on your charter?
This trip was exceptional. Our group was very entertained during the entire week. We had differing ages in the group, but there was always something for everyone to do (or just relax and do nothing!). Jim and Sherry were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us information on the history and local lore of each location, made every effort to ensure we always had plenty to eat and drink, timed the meals at our request to accommodate our plans throughout the day and suggested ideas for outings. We had a great time and we have many stories to tell for years to come.
We've chartered through the 'Big Name' companies but now that we have discovered Jim and Sherry we will go with no one else. Wherever they go, we will follow! We had a wonderful family week and visited new places and learned more on this trip than all prior trips combined. The food was amazing - Sherry is a magician - and Jims knowledge of the local history gave us a new perspective on the importance of this area.
The hospitality shown to us by Jim and Sherry was unsurpassed and we are grateful for discovering there two new friends. We will be counting the days until we re-unite on the waters in paradise.

Kim did an excellent job letting you know how great our week was and how amazing we think you both are. For your own unique ways you are perfect at the "jobs" you do on the boat. A GREAT team!
Sherry your calm, soothing way of handling the mooring and anchor lines relaxed us and amazed us. Not to mention all the terrific meals you provided - three times a day and seemingly effortlessly. Jim, we know you were a big help to Sherry in the grilling and presentation.
And Jim, you are obviously a master managing all the many "Boat Jobs". What a relief it was to have you behind the wheel. You certainly made us feel at ease, in all situations. BTW, I want you around if I ever dislocate a body part (Great job at Saba)
I could go on and on, but quite simply, you both made this one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations Rob and I have ever had. Thank you for all you did to help make our week with dear friends (old and new) the BEST ever!!
Sharon and Rob
Thank you to the furthest star in the sky, the deepest creature in the ocean and back. We will cherish each moment here for a lifetime.

This trip has been amazing!
While the scenery is unbelievable, what made this trip so special is ya'll. - everything was so relaxed, but at the same time both of you were so professional. he food was delicious along with the presentation.
Jim's suggestions on places to go and see was so much fun and the sailing was wonderful.
Thanks for a trip to remember for a lifetime - such special memories.
Vicki and Rex.
Never ever could we have imagined this trip, not in our wildest dreams.
Thank you to Jim and Sherry for memories that are going to last a lifetime.
Welcome to our FAMILY!
Rusty and Buffy
We are happy to be the first - seconds! Once again, this has been a simply AMAZING trip. Enjoyed revisiting some places as well as seeing some new places for the first time.
The food was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! We didn't expect anything less.
Words cannot express how much fun we had. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Continue to keep in touch, We will miss you both!
Love Ya David and Jamie
Thank so much for an amazing week in the BVI's. We enjoyed going to all your little "gem" spots. The hospitality, food attention to ALL details and the fun stories made the week. Thanks for the guided tour around the Baths. The snorkeling there and at the "Aquarium" was my favorite. I appreciate Sherry and her "BS" meter....I think she may be my soul sister. Definitely my kindred spirit. The respect and love for each other is contagious and was evident in everything you guys did. I wish you the best in your new marriage....and I will keep up with you guys. Hopefully we can hook-up for an adventure around St. Martin in 2018.
Hugs and Love,
Kim and Bryan
Thank you so much for a wonderful week. Our first trip to the BVI's and it could not have been any better. We so enjoyed the fellowship with you both through out the week. Sherry, your culinary skills are impeccable. Jim, your knowledge of the islands helped make snorkeling, touring and all our adventured great. We will miss you but hopefully can keep in touch. Please come visit. Good luck in your marriage. You are both wonderful people and are very blessed to have each other.
Tim and Lisa
Thank you for the most Amazing, Absolutely, Fantastic week of our lives!!!!
David and Alison
Thanks you so very much for an absolutely amazing experience!
We really appreciate what great care you took of all of us.
The food was amazing and thanks for accommodating our special requests.
The insider knowledge of the dive/snorkel sites made them even more fun.
You guys are both wonderful!
We will see you again soon!
Jim, Cheryl, Alex, Hillary, Nicolas and Dominic Mentone
Great Incredible People
Loved it PERIOD!
What really made the trip though was the crew. Captain Jim and Chef Sherry had the experience and attitude that made this one of the best trips we have ever been on. Jim was able to craft a great itinerary and then change it on the fly as we dealt with the New Years crowds and our ever evolving desires for the trip. He was able to do a great job of showing us the many sides of the BVIs and we cant wait to go back again and explore some more. Sherry made sure we were well feed with gourmet meals every day with everything from fresh scones for breakfast to scallops and bananas foster for dinner and dessert. What she is able to create out of that tiny kitchen is amazing. What I was most impressed with was both their attitudes towards the kids, they were amazing dealing with 4 smaller kids on a boat. At one point the adults were on the beach relaxing watching Captain Jim have Light Saber battles with the kids on the boatboth Jim and Sherry really went above and beyond.
We really cant wait to go back.
Lynn and Mike
Jamie and I feel like we have made two new friends! Thanks for helping us plan this trip! We could not be happier!
We are sitting here trying to figure out where to start, realizing that there is no proper place to do so. How do you summarize something so special and memorable? We should start by thanking you both for the countless laughs, stories, games, meals, service, knowledge, drinks, wonderful memories and your FRIENDSHIP for this trip. You made what we already knew would be an amazing vacation and turned it into the experience of a lifetime! To say that expectations were exceeded would be an understatement. We are so impressed with everything and couldn't be happier. We will never forget our time here and we will certainly never forget YOU! Thanks for making it special!
