Meet the Crew

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.

Chef Tyron "TJ" grew up in his father's restaurant and trained in a French restaurant. After stints in Cape Town as a Master Butcher, as chef for a private yacht in Spain, time as a private chef for a high profile family in the US, TJ returned to his yachting career aboard charter yacht Zingara in the Caribbean. ..read more

Deckhand Kieran is from the UK, his experience comes from previous roles world wide working as a dive instructor in many 5 Star resorts and liveaboard vessels. Starting from a young age Kieran sailed, kayaked and dived throughout the Mediterranean growing his passion for the ocean as well as learning valuable skills key to the successful running of a sailing charter. Running conservation camps in Fiji also taught Kieran the importance of a balanced marine ecosystem and he is happy to share with you his knowledge of corals, fish and other marine life.

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. Zingara is a great opportunity for them to serve to a high standard of hospitality as well as allowing them to sail, dive and be on the ocean.

Recen guests aboard catamaran ZINGARA said:
The staff on the Zingara was amazing from the time we stepped onto the boat to the time we left. Our group needed some extra help with travel arrangements and the crew didn't hesitate to accommodate our needs. (Some people couldn't get into port on time for departure so they rerouted and picked us up on another island!) It made us feel at ease knowing the crew would help and arrange our various arrivals. Daily we woke up to smiles and unprecedented service. The meals were OUTSTANDING and touched on every guest's dietary needs and wants. The crew was jovial yet very professional making us feel at home and comfortable! I wouldn't ask for another crew! Thanks again for a trip of a lifetime!" (Jessica & Chris Cunningham)

Thank you for a wonderful time.

The ten days on Zingara could not have been better.

One complaint, your chef and crew, they caused me to gain 10 pounds. How is that possible in ten days. George also gained a lot. I guess the food must have been crazy good and the drinks just kept on coming.
All your staff was great, constantly offering more drinks and looking for ways to please us at every turn.
I have had a couple of captains before, on my 60' sport fisher, and by far you were the most professional and concerned for both the safety of the boat and the passengers. It showed in your anchoring, tying up to the other yacht, or avoiding a rainstorm on the way to our next anchor spot.

Thanks again for an unforgettable time.

Lee,

I just wanted to give a HUGE THANK YOU to you and your staff for the trip of a lifetime this past June on the Zingara! It was simply the best family trip we have ever been on!
This was my first time on a BVI trip and I was simply blown away. First off, the Zingara and its accommodations are simply First Class - but then you and your crew take the experience to another level and truly make the trip a once in a lifetime event!
Chefs Leanne's talent for creating amazing food to satisfy all kinds of tastes and preferences is unparalleled – not to mention her infectious laugh and outgoing personality made her an absolute joy to be with!
The crew were simply endless in their pursuit of accommodating each and every one of us and making sure all were taken care of – all of the time - no matter the situation or activity! Their attention to the smallest of details was outstanding! Not to mention they are just fantastic people and a pure joy the be with and around – especially in hanging out with us [err, putting up with us] late into the night only to get up early to do it all over again!
And thanks to you for your experience and professionalism – first off in dealing with the slight change of pick up port plans we needed to make due to flight delays and cancellations - and then for taking us to the most beautiful spots in and around the BVI and taking care of us in general all week. You are great captain and it was a real pleasure being with you and getting to know you!
This was a trip we will always remember – in large part because it felt like we had lifelong great friends acting as our captain and crew! Thanks again for a fantastic week and we all look forward to joining you again one day soon! Cheers!

Lee,

We want to thank you for a wonderful trip this June on the Zingara. It was the perfect family trip for our large group. From the beautiful accommodations to the fun and professional crew to the unbelievable food. It could not have been nicer!

You took us to the most beautiful stops. It will be something that we will always remember. We all look forward to our next trip with you one day soon!

Dear Lee, Kirin, Michelle & TJ:

We are still ‘floating’ from this most amazing adventure in the BVI’s. There were so many highlights from our trip - the different islands we sailed to each day, taking advantage of all the activities the Zingara had on board - snorkeling, paddleboarding, scuba, tubing to name a few! But what made this trip really special was the level of service we all encountered, which enabled each of our families to spend the relaxing, quality time we all very much needed! The food was amazing and so was the boat itself. Thank you for being so accommodating and fun to be around. We all really enjoyed ourselves and cannot wait to go back to the islands! Hope everyone had a great vacation off the boat and enjoy all of the tours for summer. Take care!

Fondly,
Erika, Harrison, Reilly, Logan & Olivia

New Years week guests aboard ZINGARA wrote:
We are experienced yacht charterers, as we have been many boats with many different crew. First of all, the boat. Zingara is a perfect layout for 8 or 10 people (we had 10). There is plenty of space and different areas on the boat to spread out. Not only that, but she is provisioned well with many toys and activities. The SCUBA equipment in particular is new and very nice, which is important. The new owners have put money into the boat and it clearly makes a difference. Nice linens and towels, in addition to the little things that make a boat nice are all on board. Of all the boats we have chartered, Zingara offers the most for the best value.

Now, on to the important part of any charter, the crew. I can say unequivocally that this is the best crew, across the board, and that each one of the four individuals on board with us were the best at what they did of any crew we have ever had.

Let me start with the chef, Teej. We had very different tastes in our group, from kids who only wanted kid food, to adults who will settle for nothing less than the best fine dining. We also had a few picky eaters and a shellfish allergy. At the end of the trip, EVERYONE of the 10 of us said that EVERYTHING they ate from Teej was the best food they have ever had, not just on a boat, but anywhere! Teej was so good that all of us are fighting over having him come to our homes when the charter season is over to cook for us personally. The meals were all creative with great flavors, and perfectly proportioned (except for the monster cookies). Teej never said no; if one of the kids wanted a PB sandwich, it would appear. Everything, from breakfast to lunch to appetizers to the amazing dinners and deserts, were Michelin star quality.

Next, Kieran. The hardest thing to do in a confined space for a week is to keep the kids (ages 7-14) entertained and interested. Kieran did that wonderfully. At every stop all of the toys were instantly in the water and Kieran was ready to go with whatever they wanted to do. And he never got tired, if they wanted to be on the dingy for 4 hours, Kieran was there with energy and a smile. The new things he introduced us to were great, including the HaliJump, the SubWing, and the secret cliff jumping pool, all highlights. And I havent even talked about SCUBA yet, Kieran was awesome with the SCUBA, encouraging dives every day. By the end of the trip, he had certified two new divers, gave resort lessons to two more, and did multiple dives with the three pre certified divers. From beach dives to more advanced, everyone LOVED the diving. I can not say enough about Kierans great spirit, temperament, and energy.

Kieran was accompanied by Michelle, who is simply wonderful. I will start with the diving, Michelle loves to dive too and she was involved with all the dives. It was helpful to have both Kieran and Michelle on dives as we could break up the group based on skill level. From the boat standpoint Michelle was always on the spot. There was never a towel out of place, a glass half empty, or what you needed not instantly available. The fact is, Michelle is just a VERY nice person, and pleasant to be around at all times. She was warm and made the entire group welcome and comfortable. And, she was pretty funny!

Finally, Captain Lee. From the time we got on the boat, everything was about us, and what we wanted. There was never a no said the entire time we were there. Not only that, but any side comment was heard, and acted on. So when one of us wanted something to eat that wasnt on board, Lee snuck away and that afternoon it was on board. He truly listened and cared about us and what we wanted. He put together a great trip and at each stop showed us new and interesting things (remember, we have been to the BVI many times). Lee is so pleasant to be around and was really vested in making sure that each one of us was having a great time. It was clear that Lee was passionate about us, and passionate about Zingara. That passion was infectious and really made each of us have the trip of a lifetime.

The personality of the crew makes a charter, and when 14 people are together for 7 days on 80 of boat, it is the personality of the entire crew that makes the trip work, or not work. Not only did this crew make the trip work, but they made it the best trip we have ever taken, both for each individual, and as a family. I would highly recommend this crew to anyone looking for a wonderful week in the Caribbean.

Lee, Michelle, Kairan and TJ,

The best way to describe how GREAT our trip was this past holiday is "Nobody wanted to get off the boat". I think if the next week wasn't booked, we would of all stayed on.I don't think they make a better captain anywhere in the world. The crew was wonderful and was on top of everything. I told Michelle one day that we truly appreciated how they knew when to be around, but also not be right on top of us all the time. We didn't appreciate the 2-3 pounds we came back with to Texas from TJ's delicious food!!! The water sports were wonderful on the boat. My great niece and nephew up to myself had so much fun. Looking forward to our next adventure together.

You can be sure we will book again. All our best,

Jamie, Bert, Brett, Zachary, Natalie, Jenn, Cary, Eli and Sophie.

Dear Neil:
Glad to hear from you: We have all had a very hectic time since we returned from Zingara . The gratuity was all of our pleasure, yourself Karen, Reita & Gys made the whole trip wonderful.
The boat Zingara was itself a dream as were the other facilities, the diving, thehobie cat etc, and of course the wonderful scenery and location. Not to mention great food and copious wines.
The thing that made the trip for Judith & I, was the huge effort that you all made to make us welcome and happy on board. Nothing was too much trouble for you, you were all so professional, smiling and willing to help with the slightest whim. Never a sharp word, just a lovely calm happy and ultra helpful smiling approach. You were brilliant with Mike`s boys.. We all had a great time.
So what more can I say excepthope to see you again soon and, most sincerely, very many thanks to you all for a superb trip.
Kind Regards

Reviews for Zingara with previous crew:

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.
