Meet the Crew

Brian & Stephanie Johnson

Brian, originally from Alaska, spent summers home from college sport fishing and managing the family fish market. He decided the winters at home were too cold so in 1997 he made his way down to the Caribbean Virgin Islands and learned to sail.

Since then he has captained several charter yachts, both power and sail up to 100ft. Brian holds a 200ton Masters License and is a PADI Dive Instructor. He has a strong desire to make sure every guest sees their week as a vacation of a lifetime. His childlike energy and great story telling allow him to create a charter to suit adults and children alike. Brian’s knowledge of the islands, anchorages and dive sites will guarantee you a unique charter week.

In Brian’s free time he likes to free dive, travel and enjoy all the water sports the islands have to offer.

Stephanie is originally from Oregon where she grew up and went to college at Oregon State. She holds a degree in Marine Biology. She is also a Dive Master

Stephanie joined Brian in 2001, the year after she discovered the charter industry. Since then she has worked on boats as large as 130ft in the process of honing her culinary skills. She takes great pride in listening to what her guests like in order to create a charter menu they will remember.

In Steph’s free time she likes to run, take photos, and plan the next travel adventure.

Brian and Stephanie bought Sublime in 2006, the same year they got married. They have put hours of time into Sublime trying to make her the most comfortable charter boat in the Virgin Islands. Their love of chartering shows in all the details they provide to each charter. Their goal is to make every charter….Sublime.

Brian and Stephanie are joined by a third crew member for charters of 8 passengers and dive charters.

Reviews for Sublime with Brian & Stephanie Johnson:

The crew made the airport pickup and drop off incredibly easy for us, they were ready with food and were always attentive to what we wanted to do during the trip. Brian was great about presenting multiple options for the day.

The food was fantastic? The paid close attention to what the kids wanted to do and were a wealth of knowledge on local history, facts and figures. We really enjoyed snorkeling with Stephanie who has a background in marine biology.

Sublime is a beautiful boat with plenty of room to be comfortable. We liked the fact that there is a bathroom for each bedroom. They obviously take great pride in the condition of the Sublime.

The food was awesome? Way beyond our expectations. They really took the time to review our preferences

It was our first trip to the USVI and BVIs. Brian picked nice out of the way places to visit which is a plus with a Captain that has worked in the area for 15 years.

We hope we will again meet them
Brian and Stephanie are just beginning the adventures on Sublime. Here are some references from former charter guests while aboard another yacht.

We thoroughly enjoyed the entire journey with Brian and Stephanie. Brian was a real entertainer, catching big lobsters for our dinner, etc. Stephanie was a fine chef, satisfying our taste and meeting our special request without any hesitance. We hope we will again meet them on a sail boat in Carib in the future before not too long.

Thanks again and with best wishes, Joe Iwahana
