Bonnie and Steven both hold Advanced Open Water PADI dive certifications Her early career included waitressing and eventually managing several fine dining restaurants in Pittsburgh where she worked under several renowned chefs developing her own gourmet style of cooking. She presents a very eclectic menu from down home "comfort food" like fresh baked sourdough bread and chocolate chip cookies to organic free range beef tenderloin, fresh fried snapper to Fetuccini Alfredo..She uses all natural, non-processed ingredients and is as concerned about making healthy food choices as she is about over the top quality and taste. Both she and Steven love sharing their very active lifestyle and will gladly teach beginners how to snorkel, kayak and paddle board.

SECOND MATE & MASCOT: Sailor Dog

Sailor is aboard for both New England charters and charters in the Virgin Islands.

Sailor is a 1 yr old, 10 lb. Bichon Frieze/Toy Poodle mix that is in charge of making sure all the cushions on the boat are equally comfortable.

She is an extremely friendly, completely non-aggressive, people lover that is hypoallergenic to boot.

Reviews for Paradigm Shift with Steven & Bonnie Carroll:

We loved Steve and Bonnie they were perfect and the yacht was perfection. We loved everything including the puppy, Sailor. The food was excellent every meal was great and we had plenty of snacks.

Sailing Directions made this experience easy. I, like most people, have a crazy busy schedule and having everything handled took the stress out of planning the trip.

We feel in love with experience. Best vacation ever and we can't wait until we get to sail again.
