After years of sailing throughout the Caribbean and The Bahamas, Belize and southern California, Hank knew that the beautiful cruising grounds of the British Virgin Islands is where he was meant to be. It became harder and harder to go home after each sailing adventure and he finally started a 5-year plan to make this paradise "home". It seemed crazy at times as he was selling all of his life possessions and leaving a career behind, but this experience has far exceeded anything he could have imagined.
Hank was born in Miami Beach and grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He holds a USCG 100 Ton Master License, is a PADI Certified Advanced and Rescue Diver and has obtained his Marine Safety STCW 95 and First Aid training. He enjoyed a successful career in the hospitality business for over 20+ years with two national restaurant chains specializing in multi unit operations, food safety, marketing and consulting.
During this time, Hank moved throughout the United States and Canada, before ending up in San Diego where he fell in love with the ocean and became an avid surfer, sailor and water sport enthusiast. This love of water sports led him to adventures in Hawaii, Costa Rica, South Africa and throughout the Caribbean. Hank's enthusiasm, experience and relaxed personality will add to an unforgettable vacation on Feel the Magic. "I just love giving our guest an experience that will last a lifetime in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I welcome you to join me to a life that you hear Buffett and Chesney sing about."

The crew were very friendly and attentive. They worked their butts off making sure we were having a great vacation (which we did). I enjoyed talking with both of them about their previous lives and what led them to this charter service on Feel the Magic.
Was Feel the Magic was very clean, the beds were bigger than I'd expected and the breezes at night through the hatches were delightful. We used A/C on the first night so the kids could settle in but after that it was all sea breezes.
The food was very good. Micheale did a great job meeting our requests on the preliminary sheets and came up with some wonderful meals based on those ingredients. Often when on vacation, you feel guilty about eating poorly, but we had some amazing meals that I know were very healthy (although I may have had a few too many second and third helpings). The kids always found something they liked and if Micheale noticed they weren't really eating something, she offered to make something different.
We did the bulk of our long journey during the second day to get ahead of some weather swells and were very happy with the route that was chosen. Hank knew many of the nooks and crannies of the islands and brought us to many special places that he knew we'd enjoy. I'm glad we got to see so many different islands as it gave us an idea of which we'd like to focus on for return trips.
Everyone agrees that it was our best vacation ever. I wish we could do it 3x a year.
