Captain and Chef on Yacht Sweetest Thing

Captain Jackson and Chef Chelsea hail from Westminster, Massachusetts and have been working together for 6 years. Their passion for sailing and the culinary arts allowed them to win a competition to serve our guests on Sweetest Thing.

Captian Jackson is a fish biologist, dive master, diesel mechanic, eco-tour guide and all-around "adventurer". Hailing from coastal New England, Jackson spent summers on the water teaching sailing, giving tours, learning maintenance and honing his craft. He received a BS in Fish and Water Sciences from UMass in 2013. Later that year, the couple moved to San Diego, where Jackson earned his 50GT Captain's License and went on to operate dive boats, manage a fleet of over 70 watercraft and in his spare time, lead educational kayak and bicycle tours in the bay area. Jackson's credentials and love for the outdoors, education and sailing promises guests the enjoyment of a captain who is informative, fun and safe!!

Chelsea Lashua describes herself as having a strong passion for people, travel and food that comes from a childhood sailing up and down the New England coast with family and spending weeks cruising the crystal waters of the BVIs. In college, Chelsea studied Communications, Tourism and Hospitality Management, including a semester abroad in Italy focused on Italian cooking classes. This experience, combined with 5+ years in the high end restaurant industry, has given Chelsea the proper tools to offer a first class vacation experience. She loves to cook everything and anything, and while her favorite meals to prepare involve seafood, Chef Chelsea combines her cooking knowledge with a uniquely-styled creative touch to create stunning results.

The food is spectacular. The hospitality is attentive but warm. And the accommodations are spectacular. Come join Captain Jackson and First Mate Chelsea on the vacation of your lifetime, in the lovely and serene charter capital of the world - the Virgin Islands.

Most of our guests comment that their time aboard Sweetest Thing is the best vacation they have ever experienced. We are especially accommodating to families, with sleeping accommodations for up to 8. We have three queen suites, each with its own A/C unit and private bathroom, so a couple’s getaway will provide the perfect mix of private time with the love of your life, and social time with your friends. Our DVD flat screen swings out, so you can watch inside or from the cockpit. Fish lights in the stern are certain to attract large tarpon for your late night entertainment.
