Meet the Crew

Tyler & Erika Boruff

Tyler and Erika love being on, in or under the water. Committed to exceptional guest service, this crew will make sure your vacation in the islands is one you will never forget.

Tyler and Erika meet in college where they worked at a dive shop and ran a dive club together. After college they set off to face the corporate world - Tyler as a production manager for Aramark Uniform Services and Erika as a logistics manager for Target. Hectic travel schedules and long days left them missing each other and the water. After years of climbing the ladder, they realized that there was no monetary amount or level of success that could match the time they were missing with each other. So they decided to get married and move to the islands where they could claim back the missing time and build their lives as newlyweds.

Island life suited them as they enjoyed sailing, diving and exploring the BVI and USVI. After being land-based in the BVI, working at a local dive shop, they decided move into chartering.

Tyler and Erika love living and working full-time on the water. For Tyler, it’s the perfect platform to share his passion for the water by helping guests enjoy snorkeling or diving, water sports, fishing and sailing. Erika loves being able to help craft custom itineraries while providing delicious dining experiences to accompany the perfect vacation.

Both Tyler and Erika are scuba instructors and instructors for first aid and CPR. Tyler is a certified Red Cross Lifeguard. Both of them have taught swim lessons as well. Their strong background in water safety makes them capable of providing an extra level of security to all of their guests. ..read more

They were voted “Best Crew in Show” in their category at the VI Professional Charter Association’s 2017 USVI Charter Yacht Show. Combined, their southern hospitality and love for fun will ensure your vacation here in the islands is full of unforgettable memories.

Captain Tyler: Tyler is always on the move and ready for an adventure, he is a man of many hobbies and easily relates to others. He grew up fishing, boating, wake-boarding and water-skiing. When he was ten he sailed for the first time and he quickly became hooked. In college he worked a wind surfing and scuba instructor. His passion for being on the water followed him to the East Coast where he owned his own fishing boat and served as a first mate/instructor on several dive boats.

Tyler has always been an out-doorsman whether it’s hunting or backpacking in the mountains of North Carolina, where he calls home, cave diving in North Florida or free diving in the Keys. He satisfies his land-based tendencies by hiking around on the islands and finding the best jumping spots to plunge into the ocean. On the water, he enjoys throwing out a line or diving for lobsters in the USVI. In the water, he is an avid free diver and exceptional at fish identification.

He is no stranger to hospitality. Tyler has years of experience in guest service management and is even a licensed bartender.

As your captain, Tyler will make sure you have a fun, safe time on Viramar. He is dedicated to helping his guests create unique memories. Tyler will work with you to make sure your trip is full of destinations and adventures that fulfill your island vacation bucket list.

Chef/First Mate Erika: Erika has a love for entertaining which she demonstrates by pouring custom cocktails and whipping up creative eats. When Tyler and Erika decided to get into chartering, she went back to school to earn her professional chef certification through Roubex Cooking School. She is also a certified food safety manager by the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals and a licensed bartender.

She worked in event planning for three years and coordinated trips for groups as large as 40. She has helped plan pig picking, oyster roasts and even a couple weddings. She became the ultimate trip host – making sure her guests were not only organized, but also entertained and well-fed. Her background in logistics and experience in food prep helps her when it comes to planing meals for guests during their stay. She is comfortable working around dietary restrictions and flexible to meet your needs.

Erika is also a scuba instructor and loves to lead underwater excursions when she is not in the galley. She is easily excited by turtles and squids - you can often find her on dolphin patrol or chasing a stingray during a snorkel. Her favorite part of any island has to be the goats, which she will happily show you on island tour days. She enjoys fishing with Tyler and anything involving being outdoors. Erika also enjoys writing, taking photos, reading and playing guitar. She is always down for a good time, new adventure or anything involving wonderful food.

SCUBA DIVING WITH VIRAMAR:

Tyler is a NAUI Course Director, SSI and TDI Scuba Instructor. Erika is also a NAUI Scuba Instructor. They both are avid divers with a passion to grow the sport and share their love of the ocean. Whether you are already certified or just coming to try it out, scuba diving will enhance your vacation and maximize your in-water time.

The Virgin Islands are home to many beautiful reef dives and several interesting wreck dives. Tyler and Erika have extensive knowledge of the USVI and BVI dive sites including the spots not often frequented. Divers can expect warm waters year round with visibility often more than 60 feet. On Viramar, we dive directly from our boat and offer a large swim platform for easy access in and out of the water. Each dive, the crew will assemble your gear, guide your dive and help assist your entrance and exit from the water.

Committed to your safety, there is an Emergency Oxygen Kit onboard and both Tyler and Erika are trained in O2 Administration, First Aid and CPR procedures.

Amazing and magnificent...
It's hard to find words that accurately describe my experience which don't sound like generic exclamations or empty superlatives. Amazing. Magnificent. Splendid. Awesome. These are all passable and yet, somehow only hint at what I felt during our week-long journey in the BVIs.

Tyler and Erika are very special. Both are smart, experienced, funny, skillful, caring, knowledgeable, and charming. Extremely capable apart, yet a fantastic team together. I will forever measure other boat crews against them - my litmus test for how it should be.

Erika just knocked it out of the park when it came to food. Not only was her menu selection spot-on with our tastes, her execution was among the very best - especially considering it all came from a tiny kitchen rocking to and fro! She is also a very competent first mate - always at the ready to moor the boat, furl a sail, help a diver out of the water, batten down the hatches, or drop the anchor.

The always affable Tyler was a diligent and discerning captain as well as divemaster. He excelled at making decisions to maximize both our enjoyment and our safety. With a diverse group on board - some divers, some snorkelers, some landlubbers, etc - it was no small task for him to select pleasure stops, land excursions, and overnight anchors/moors that suited everyone, but did so with aplomb. Plus, he makes the *best* painkillers ;)

This was my first trip to the BVIs. I wasn't sure what to expect in the aftermath of hurricane Irma but let me be the one to tell you that the spirit of the people that work these waters and live on these islands, is indomitable. It may not be the same as it was a year ago, but those changes did nothing to attenuate our joy of being there.

In closing, let me not try to wrest more-nuanced adjectives from the English language and just simply say what really matters. We had so much fun. We were happy. We laughed. We marveled. We dove and ate and sailed and soaked up the sun. And we made new friends. This trip was perfect.-Peter B.
Where to begin...
Where to begin... This trip with Tyler and Erika was more than I ever could have imagined. The food that Erika whipped up was not only amazing tasting, but healthy (our request) and beautiful! Tyler was always there with an amazing story and a good laugh, in addition to being knowledgeable, a fantastic dive master and an outstanding captain. Throughout the trip we played tons of games they had on board, did 7 dives, learned the basics of sailing, had great shore excursions and had plenty of time to relax and take in the atmosphere. Usually my husband, Peter, and I try to never go to the same place/vacation twice, but we are already talking about how to fit this into our 2019 plans. Tyler and Erika, See you Soon! (and tell the Flamingo Hi for us)" -Jill B.
Memorable Caribbean holiday...
The absolute highlight of our trip to America - thank you Erika and Tyler for a memorable Caribbean holiday! Erika created the most amazing meals for us - we never went hungry and she was so obliging for the fussy little members of the family - she was creative and never ceased to amaze us with what she was able to produce in the little kitchen! Tyler made an excellent captain, involving the kids in sailing between the islands and being very informative. He found us good snorkeling spots and Thomas and I so enjoyed our dives with him. The kids have confirmed it to be the best part of our holiday and we thank both Erika and Tyler for their patience and time they spent with the kids, the games of Uno, knot tying lessons, etc. It was a REAL holiday and we have returned home with many happy memories. Thank you for everything! -Cathy M.
Dream come true vacation...
Dream come true vacation to the BVI and USVI! We sailed with the talented and very knowledgeable Tyler and Erika Boruff! They made our trip just perfect for us! We explored the sea, the land and several unique parts of Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and St. John. It is tough to capture it all in pictures, but it will be memories that we treasure for a lifetime! Sadly we saw the devestation that the hurricanes brought and are happy that we could support the essential tourism of this area as they rebuild. We will be back!" -Stephanie Y.
Best trip ever....
Best trip ever...thanks to our Captain Tyler Boruff and Chef Erika Boruff! Literally crying that we had to leave! Fantastic food, tons of fun stops and and managed to get all required dives in for Boe and Nic's diver certification." -Jennifer R.
Beyond amazing...
In all our charters, Tyler was absolutely the best hands down...especially for the divers. He's a real gem. Erika went beyond perfect! Just an amazing young lady. They were flexible, but we mostly stuck to the itinerary we started with because it was best anyway. First time to paddle board and Tyler was the perfect teacher! Even my 82 year old hubby did it! Yay!!

Beyond amazing! Erika bent over backwards to find everything we asked for and more. We've sailed half a dozen times, including bareboat, and this was by far the best. -Patty S.

Reviews for Tyler & Erika Boruff aboard previous yachts:

Tyler and Erika were both great. They both showed extensive knowledge and we were always sure we were safe and well cared for. Professionally, they were spot on.

But what really was terrific about both Tyler and Erika was how they personally invested themselves into sharing their local knowledge and other skills to help our family have the best trip possible. Whether it was the cooking, or the scuba training, or the ushering us around the great spots they suggested- they made sure we had a fantastic trip. Perfect.

The boat was great- very clean, and very comfortable. I loved sleeping outside under the stars (with my daughter) a couple nights, and the dinghy made getting out and about an easy experience.

The food was fantastic, it was expertly prepared and a lot of obvious thought put into matching our tastes.

We loved the (active) itinerary that we enjoyed, and the destinations were special and fun. Tyler and Erika obviously listened to what we thought made sense, and then made sure our stops fit in the most entertainment possible.
