Captain Lee & Crew
Captain Lee’s interest in the Maritime Industry was installed in him from the earliest age possible, owing to his grandfather being an Admiral of the Port Elizabeth Navy.
While at a young age he took part in bay racing and lending a hand at the local yacht club. His passion for sailing grew and after school and much thought, Lee took to the oceans on a recreational professional side as opposed to the Navy.
He joined a crew and raced across the Atlantic, where he took part in regattas in Antigua and St Maarten. In the USA he was able to establish himself as a valuable crew member aboard a classic Schooner that circumnavigated the globe, and after completing his maritime studies he was fortunate to take over as skipper and gained more experience in the engineering department.
Lee is an active and enthusiastic person, he enjoys all water sports. The experiences he has gained through his travels along with a jovial personality creates a pleasant atmosphere which is enough to make any guest aboard feel right at home, ready to relax and enjoy themselves.

Michelle is your stewardess aboard Zingara. She is an ocean girl coming from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A place where her passion for the ocean and underwater life grew throughout her upbringing. Working in 5 Star resorts in Puerto Vallarta as a dive master and photographer has allowed Michelle to follow her dreams of working by the ocean whilst working in a service industry.
Kieran and Michelle began working together in Mexico as Dive instructors and underwater photographers. It was here that a great working relationship was forged and they have continued to work successfully together in a variety of roles. Conducting a research project in the Turks & Caicos on humpback whales which resulted in record breaking encounters and unbelievable new data collected again showcased their talent. Once the whales left the Turks and Caicos Kieran and Michelle decided to head south and begin a new adventure in the British Virgin Islands.
They joined Zingara in early 2015 and now they combine their experience, passions and enthusiasm for water sports and diving aboard Zingara. Underwater photography is one of their main interests and in their free time they love to spend it capturing underwater life in photos and videos. Join them diving on Zingara to share the underwater world with them. They are both fluent in English and Spanish and are happy to converse in either and aspire to one day run they own yacht but in the meantime they’re working and gaining experience on their dream boat.

The crew were absolutely excellent in every single aspect of the trip! Rich and Lisa’s commitment to our enjoyment, experience and safety was awesome. Nothing was too much trouble; they gave us a 5 star experience of the highest standard, from the moment we arrived to the second that we left.
Zingara was in fantastic condition. Spotlessly clean and equipped to the highest standard and extremely comfortable. Our favorite aspect was hanging out on the top deck during afternoon sails and again with after dinner drinks.
The quality of the food and variance of the menu, was the biggest single surprise of the trip. We are a well-travelled group and the food was among the best we have ever had! Rich is truly an excellent chef, wonderfully supported by Lisa. The cuisine was amazing!
Could not have asked for more from the BVIs - stunning!
We would use you guys again without hesitation and Rich and Lisa would be our absolute preference to stay with again. They made the trip!
As you can tell from our comments we were hoping for the trip of a life time to celebrate my wife Dee’s 50th birthday and the trip exceeded every single expectation we had! Our group has literally travelled the world and the consensus of opinion was this was the best trip any of us had ever done. We will remember the trip for a very long time.
