Captain: Mike Marier
MEET THE CREW:
Mike and Julie met soon after high school and have been inseparable ever since. While raising their family, Mike & Julie took family vacations up north which always meant time on the water boating, fishing, skiing, biking and lots of great memories with the family. They also traveled to tropical destinations to escape the cold winter months. When they took a family trip to the Virgin Islands they knew they would be back for good at some point. They bought a sailboat in Florida after their family was raised, spent time there and made the jump to come back to the islands after selling their home and everything they owned in 2019. They have run successful charters in the Virgin Islands ever since.
Mike grew up in the land of 10,000 lakes and took full advantage of as many opportunities as he could to hit the lakes.
As a boy and young man he spent many summers up north at the family cabin taking advantage of all water sports. It’s here that Mike developed his love of being on the water. Mike has been an entrepreneur most of his life and has, along with Julie run a personal training business, owned a fitness center and worked in the oil fields. In his free time, Mike enjoys working out, reading and 'wrenching' on things. Mike looks forward to showing his guests a great time and all the amazing experiences the islands have to offer.
Julie was born in Minnesota and moved to California as a young girl. It was then that Julie fell in love with the ocean and the peace and serenity it brought her.
Julie’s love of cooking and food started at a young age as her mother was a wonderful cook and teacher and had Julie in the kitchen with her. Because of her early start, Julie worked in the service industry in many different fields after moving back to Minnesota. Julie loves to cook a wide range of foods but her favorites are comfort style, using fresh local ingredients. Julie’s hobbies are crocheting, cooking, working out with Mike and people watching :).
Julie looks forward to having you and your family join them for an unforgettable experience.
They hope to help others create lasting lifetime memories in their dream destination.
“The common template of stories that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, is victorious in a decisive crisis and comes home changed or transformed.”
Not all heroes wear capes - some wear tank tops, flip flops, wetsuits and fins.
You catered to our every whim, and thanks to Julie's amazing cooking, we are going home fat and happy.
You might have to drag us off this beautiful boat and we HOPE to make this an annual trip with you.
Hope you will come to Miami so we can wait on you!
Not enough thank yous!
All of the meals were AMAZING! So many delicious and unexpected treats and eats.
The services you both provide made us feel at ease and such an absolute treat to feel so pampered. Every single drink and dish was prepared perfectly! Thank you for all your hard work, dedication to us and our friends, and especially thank you for making this a true TRIP OF A LIFETIME!!! One we will never forget!!!
I had high expectations for this trip and every one was exceeded beyond belief. From the time we stepped on the boat Mike and Julie treated our group like we were VIP's. They brought us to THE BEST spots in the USVI, prepared 5-Star meals and served THE BEST drinks! Rum punch and the painkillers were spot on.
Thanks for the trip of a lifetime and one that we will NEVER forget!
Superior meals prepared by Chef Julie!
5 Star service - 5 Star meals

We return with many memories and hope to return one day soon!

There seriously aren't enough words to describe how wonderful y'all have been at making this the most amazing vacation EVER! The beautiful places, awesome company and the phenomenal meals made by Julie! Everything has been the absolute best ever! Thank you so, so much for everything. We will absolutely be doing this again and wouldn't do it with anyone but you two! Y'all are the BEST! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
Thank you for the experience that has been genuinely UNREAL. I wish we could freeze time and stay forever in this dream of a week, just snorkeling with turtles, enjoying five-star meals and hospitality, and soaking up the sun and the great company. This place in and of itself would be pretty incredible but experiencing it with y'all really took it to the next level. The itinerary, your on-point music, the impeccable service, the myriad of adventures - we really cannot thank you enough for the hospitality and patience and friendliness. And I'm not kidding when I say y’all should have a cookbook of all of the incredible meals!
We will miss the beautiful sunsets, watching the fish at night and the most gorgeous beaches we have ever seen.
Thanks for one of the most tremendous trips we have ever taken!
This trip was planned a few months ago and our expectations grew with time.... Well, now that we are almost done (last night) I can easily say you have exceeded our expectations! From best food ever to safety, from great sailing places to perfect execution of itinerary. The places we visited were beautiful, a good variety of empty bays and crowded, blue water and white sandy beaches. Your service was wonderful, from coffee to dinner desserts. Julie is a 5 star chef.
In my deepest self I truly appreciate you being as wonderful to my family as you were.
What an amazing trip! We have just done our very first Charter! Captain Mike and his lovely wife, Chef Julie, were fantastic! Every day brought a new adventure with destinations catered to what we wanted to see. As a family of 4, with 2 teens – getting us all to agree upon an itinerary for days on end– is a monumental challenge, but they met and exceeded our hopes! As each day passed, we actively worked with Mike and Julie to tweak this or that – to fit our mood and energy level. Each port had its own unique flavor, and we each had our personal favorite – from white sand beaches, to swirling water pools – I don’t think any of us expected the variety contained in such a small patch of the world. Mike really seemed to be able to steer us to the best locations for us, while Julie kept us eating like royalty along the way. I do not exaggerate when I say that at least 2 family members (maybe more 😊 )were caught licking their desert plates. It was that good. Julie also helped us navigated some of the down times, bringing in fun activities (my kids are card sharks, who knew?) to get us to laugh and extend the fun way after sundown.
In summary: Everyone was smiling. Everyone had fun. Everyone loved the food. Basically ….. the best trip ever! Goodbye Cruises, Hello Chartering!
Captain Mike tailored the itinerary to our daily preferences including snorkeling , island excursions , virgin beach swimming and sometimes simply hanging out onboard with a cold cocktail and good music.
Boat toys were great especially the floating mat which can provide hours of silly entertainment.
And the Meals.......WOW. Julie is an exceptional cheff. I am a food guy and Julie did not disappoint.
Breakfasts were amazing with Julie always combining fruit and fresh ingredients tailored to each guest’s portions. Lunches and dinners were spectacular with pastas, local seafood, steaks, ....etc. Resort style dinning on a boat. Need I say anymore.
Their knowledge of the area was very comforting and made our trip effortless.
I would highly recommend having a team like Mike and Julie to make a Virgin Island Catamaran tour complete and successful.
