John & Shirelle
My name is John Crafford. I grew up in Cape Town South Africa. As a child I fell in love with the ocean surfing and sailing around Cape Town. After 11 years of having my own construction company I decided to follow my dreams and go sailing as a career. As a captain I have worked on sailing yachts and power boats from 11m to 30m. Even went to France to work on super yachts but could not get my sense of adventure satisfied until I started doing deliveries. Crossing the Atlantic a few times I got introduced to the Caribbean and chartering. I fell in love with the industry. In 2012 I started chartering from 11m to 30m yachts. My love for the ocean led me to become a PADI dive instructor. I met Shirelle as a suggestion as a new 1st mate and chef. I was not only blown away by her professionalism and culinary expertise but her warm, caring personality and love for life and the ocean also stole my heart.
My name is Shirelle Paris, I grew up in a small green town in Israel. I always loved nature. When I was 20 I started studying natural medicine therapy and moved to a small beautiful town on the beach full of surfers and sailors and started sailing. Since then I'm in love with the ocean. When I graduated from college I decides to go with my heart and went sailing in the Pacific ocean. I saw beautiful places and worked on different kinds of boats doing everything that needed doing like first mate, deckhand, cooking and hosting. I came to the Caribbean, to focus my career on what I really loved doing and I'm thankful for the opportunity. I love everything about the Caribbean and this is where I met John, my love and the most charming, considerate, knowledgeable, kind man and Captain I ever met. Cooking was always a natural thing for me. My mother is an amazing chef and she taught me how to cook from the day I was born. We used to invite a lot of guests and making meals a celebration of life and international culinary experience. For me cooking is art and a way to give love and joy to people..read more

We had such an amazing trip. The boat is beautiful, and John and Shirelle were the most wonderful hosts. They made our trip fun, were knowledgeable and easy going about where we should go and what to do each day. Shirelle is such a talented cook. They were very flexible and helpful when deciding our route and always made sure we were well fed!
The yacht was beautiful. Very airy and well stocked with everything we needed. We loved the back seating area and upper deck seating areas.
The food was absolutely delicious. There was plenty of it, a wide variety each day and Shirelle was great with dietary requests.
Given this was our fifth charter we were pleased to try some new areas and snorkel spots. Everything was really great. We had a wonderful time.
