MEET THE CREW - 2019/20 SEASON
Captain - Brian Christiansen
Chef - Elena Gandillon

Share in the unique experiences of the Virgin Islands that Elena and Brian craft for you sailing aboard the spacious, wind-powered vessel, Black Tortuga.

With close to a decade of experience taking people “into the wild”, Brian shares his sense of adventure with guests. Raised in Utah and frequently found at sea, Brian is confronted with questions as to how he became an ocean-going captain. Most people forget there is a small ocean, the Great Salt Lake, in his desert home. His father taught him a love for all activities in and around water. Reading sea-faring novels from the golden-age of discovery inspired him to lust for the horizon and he eventually made his way aboard expedition ships plying all the planet's waters. Alongside working for National Geographic Expeditions, he operated specialty charters through the Lesser Antilles on his own sailing vessel. As a USCG 100ton rated captain, his attention to detail and professionalism are integral to safe operation of the vessel. As a fellow human with passions in outdoor pursuits, he is a perfect companion for fun activities if you want to try your hand at at anything from surfing and kiteboarding to freediving and kayaking. Holding a degree in film-making, working as a videographer and being a reward winning photographer; he can create, upon prior request, a media package of the events that make your trip remarkable.

Elena's spirit awakens in the open. After traveling to over thirty countries, her instinct draws her to beautiful and isolated places. Her love for nature led her from jagged mountain peaks of Switzerland into the deep blue of the Indo-Pacific. She became a PADI certified scuba instructor in Komodo so she can share her love of undersea life with others. Join her for some scuba diving or become certified while onboard and see what the hype is all about! Growing up in an international household, her culinary influences are mainly French and Swiss with added spice from her travels, specializing in creating heart-warming dishes from the simplest of ingredients. She aspires to cater her dishes toward individual diets and has perfected eco-friendly, plant-based menu selections. Placing great importance on the dining experience, speaking three languages, and versed in the art of conversation makes spending time with her a joy, no matter where you are from.

Elena and Brian met in Raja Ampat diving and sailing and are fully committed to spending every moment in each other’s company with their first love, the water. Blending luxurious yacht life and connecting with nature in easy grace, they ignite voyagers' passion for Caribbean beauty. Sailing in consistent winds on the azure waters of the Virgin Islands while visiting white sandy beaches with quaint hideaways is a perfect way to charter.
Come join them aboard Black Tortuga for the wind-powered charter of a lifetime. You will go home with more than memories - you will have inspiring stories of rewarding experiences.

With Elena and Brian, you are guaranteed an unforgettable week. As a team, they are perfectly matched to make your tropical getaway magical.

Reviews:

Epic!!
Our time on Black Tortuga was AMAZING! Cruising around St. John and out to Flanagan Island was so beautiful. I will never forget the dives, snorkel, noodle floats, meals, fruity drinks, and sunsets. EPIC!!! Night dive watching the octopus feed was a bucket list moment. Every second was pure bliss.
An Amazing Team

You are an amazing team. Thanks for all the fun laughter and creating the environment for our family to bond and spend quality time together.

Thank you for your passion for the sea and these beautiful islands. I appreciate the extra care and effort in making what were already amazing meals, edible for me with all of my allergies. First trip ever that food was a highlight of the vacation and I felt included when it was time to eat. Casper and I enjoyed our trip immensely. Thank you!

You guys are soooo AMAZING! this trip will forever be so memorable because you made it so great and so fun for me and my family! Brian you are so much fun and so cool teaching us new things and about the history of the islands was one of my favorites. We really enjoyed you hanging out with us and keeping us busy and filling up our days with fun. Elena, your cooking was incredible and so beautiful. I always looked forward to our meals and snacks :). I loved your passion for everything and the ocean and life itself! I love learning new things from you and everything you say sounds so amazing about places and things you have done! You both are incredible and I'm so thankful for this trip and getting to meet you. Dont' change anything. I loved it all.
Trip of a Lifetime!
Thank you for the trip of a lifetime! I love your passion and knowledge of the sea. Having you two as company was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for being so patient and kind.
Amazing Trip!
I was amazing! The only complaint is it went way to fast! Food was amazing, company/sailing/stories....all made for the perfect get-a-way.
Will remember forever!

Indelible Memories!
the need to taste life is etched in our brains. It is on trips like these where the flavors come alive. We are all here to experience, to touch, to feel, to listen, to love. All of these sensations lead to feeling. We were all so lucky to feel and experience these these past 7 days - a paradise which has thankfully left indelible memories for the entire clan. We are grateful for your excellent guide services and stellar hospitality.
What an Epic Journey!
This was one of the best weeks of our entire life! From the magnificent food and insane feats that Elena pulled off meal after meal to the non-stop adventures Captain Brian engineered. We so appreciate all the love, laughter and adventure. Thank you for including us in one of the most magical moments of our lives.
Witnessing your engagement and New Years Eve was legendary! Thanks for becoming friends! We wish you nothing but love and adventure and we cannot wait to return for another epic trip on the Black Tortuga.
Happy Everything!
Friendly and Fun To Be Around
He is strong and healthy and very fit and an awesome Captain. I have watched him do amazing physically-demanding feats.... On top of all this, he is friendly, fun to be around, out-going, and has a well developed sense of humor. Brian has a real positive outlook on life and is always upbeat
Excellent with Guests
He was excellent with guests – helpful, friendly and fun; letting his natural personality shine through, but was always respectful and a professional Captain.
Everything we Expected and More
The experience offered in writing seemed too good to be true. In reality, the trip was everything we expected and more. My opinion is that Mr. Christiansen does excellent work under all conditions.
Elena shares her passion for the ocean, diving and fine cuisine. She is incredibly patient and lots of fun to be around.
