Captain: Laurent Geslin
Captain Laurent Geslin
Laurent grew up in Paris, France. Urban life did not deter this water baby, who learned to swim and sail a Laser 420 as a child, and to scuba dive at the age of 12, with level three qualifications at 16 years old. He moved to Switzerland when he was 22 years old, purchased a Laser 2, and spent all his free time trimming the sails on Lake Geneva.
Laurent graduated college with a degree in economics and enjoyed a long career in the Swiss private banking industry as a stock exchange trader and operations specialist. In addition to his job as a banker, he co-owned a dive shop and school. Laurent is a high-energy individual that thrives on keeping busy, so he also played bass and guitar in a local band. Laurent is a qualified PADI Dive Instructor.
In 2015, Laurent and his wife Astrid decided it was time for a life change. They bought a catamaran and set off to sail the Mediterranean Sea. They skimmed past Gibraltar in 2016, spent two months in the Canary Islands and three months in the Cap Verde Islands before crossing the Atlantic. It was love at first sight when they reached the Caribbean, and they’ve decided to stay for quite a while.
Laurent is an expert Captain who enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for Caribbean sailing with his guests. His motto: living your dream is always better than dreaming your life. Charter ISOLABLUE with Laurent and Astrid. Isn’t it time to live your dream?
Chef Astrid Geslin
Astrid had an enchanting childhood. She grew up with her brother and sister close to Luzern, in the heart of Switzerland, near the Alps and next to the Lake of Lucerne. Nestled in this picture-postcard landscape was her parents’ restaurant. Even as a very young child, Astrid loved to help with the cooking. Growing up cooking, serving and eating fine food proved a joyful inspiration. However, whether they be lakes or seas, water has always been her passion: sailing, diving, windsurfing, and swimming. Astrid is a qualified PADI Dive Master.
For over 20 years, Astrid worked in Geneva, Switzerland as a Human Resources executive. One of the great benefits was the extensive, international travel the job required to start-up offices in Zürich, Paris, Milan and elsewhere. In between these working adventures, she and husband Laurent spent as much time as possible sailing their boat across the waters of Lake Geneva. Astrid obtained Sailing Certification for Lakes, then passed the Swiss Certificate of Competence for Ocean Yachting. It was a perfect time to sail to new horizons.
Astrid is always happy to receive guests and share moments of discovery and joy. “Every charter is a rewarding, new, enriching experience made of encounters, good humor and fun,” says Astrid. “I speak fluent French, English and German, some Italian and Spanish. I try to welcome our guests in their own language and make them feel at home. I’m passionate about fine food from all over the world. My recipes are inspired from Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, but always with a French touch.”
While Astrid’s cooking consistently earns rave reviews, guests needn’t worry about gaining a couple of extra pounds. Astrid enjoys leading a workout, from on-deck yoga to a lap around the yacht, to a go on the water toys. And fun is always her leading motivator.
Astrid was awarded FIRST PRIZE at the Grenada Yacht Charter Show 2018 Culinary Contest! Well done Astrid!!
I wanted to present the 3 different colors of Grenada:
green for the fertile land;
yellow for the wisdom, sunshine, and warmth of Grenadians and
red for the people’s courage and vitality. The people here are what make the Island of Spice so unique.
The specified ingredient was Tamarin juice. My idea was to create a Tamarin reduction which I added in all three finger entrees.
We would like to thank you for playing a central component in our first annual “friends group” bucket list. Your kindness, hospitality, fantastic meal preparation and graciousness can’t be matched. You have a lovely yacht that will surely serve as a measure for comparison for any future boating adventures we may consider. We would also like to thank you for allowing our non-scuba” companion to have a go at exploring the below the water world. You truly provided us with a lifetime of memorable experiences.
Best of luck and thank you again!
The “G” Party
The crew was professional, accessible and accommodating! Our interactions with Astrid and Laurent were delightful. They accommodated our wishes without hesitation.
The yacht was well maintained. Everything was in great condition, very clean and well-maintained. (I have had a great deal of sailing experience on a variety of boats for over 50 years.)
The quality and presentation of the meals was Exquisite! The meals and presentations exceeded those we have had in fine restaurants and every bite was delicious!
We were satisfied with the cruising itinerary. They offered recommendations and feedback on destinations and were totally open to our requests.
Not to be repetitive, our experience went well beyond our every expectation! Beautiful yacht, wonderful hosts and an unforgettable experience! Our experience with Astrid and Laurent Geslin on Isolablue was extraordinarily wonderful!
The “M” Family
We arrived unsure of what to expect. We found paradise! Every meal an exquisite work or art. Every anchorage or mooring private and peaceful. Every vista breathtaking. Glorious sunrises and sunsets, star filled moonlit skies to soothe one to sleep and blue, blue water filled with life to open one’s eyes to what is all around us!
Thank you both for sharing a small piece if your world with us! Your skills, expertise and advise all deeply appreciated.
We will never forget the wonderful memories that you have helped to create, this has been and absolutely wonderful experience, shared with beloved family and new friends.
P.S. This morning I joined a gang of tarpon on the hunt.
P.S.S. May you always have a good laugh remembering the bathing suite incident when you drop people off at the Baths!

The "G" Family
We loved the area that we sailed, the islands are colorful, the anchorages comfortable with great views on nature, the snorkeling great with many many fishes and a great diversity of corals.
Astrid and Laurent were outstanding! First of all very professional, very precise with security (on boat, while snorkeling, while diving), but then also experienced sailors, naturalists with a great knowledge, award winning cook (Astrid) and barkeeper (Laurent). They made all our dreams come true. They are very precious people and we are more than happy to get to know them.
From a Happy Guest
The yacht is comfortable, clean and spacious. Very well shaded with many comfortable places to spend the day.
The yacht is well ventilated and also equipped with ventilators and a/c.
The food was superb and well presented. You would not think you were on a yacht. Incredible, what Astrid performed in her kitchen!

Astrid and Laurent were outstanding. First of all, very professional, very precise with security (on boat, while snorkeling, while diving), but then also experienced sailors, naturalists with a great knowledge, award winning cook (Astrid) and barkeeper (Laurent). They made all our dreams come true. They are very precious people and we are more than happy to get to know them.
We were concerned to come to this area, on a foreign ship. We were very worried in regards to the quality, the sailing and cleanliness of the ship, the competence and hospitality of the owner couple and general concerns about whether the Caribbean has still anything to offer us. So we are all the more pleased that the holidays were a complete success.
The ship is very well equipped, both nautical and comfortable. The couple has been chartering for a while, which is reflected primarily in the ship's command, but also in many good facilities for comfort and sun protection. There are also full snorkel and diving equipment, as one wants it to be. The ship is sparkling clean. Safety is not just written in big words but also lived all the time. In addition to the impeccable navigation, we very much appreciated the accompaniment with the dinghy during our snorkeling trips, be it because of the possible current or because of speedboats.
Our wishes regarding our sailing program were taken seriously and fulfilled wherever possible. For this, the two even took on the burden of a night trip. In addition, they surprised us with many beautiful places that we did not know from our time. They adapted to our thirst for discovery and spared no effort to move diligently the ship from place to place or even to include a snorkel passage in the morning before the departure. They even organized our shore excursions, which was very helpful.
Astrid and Laurent can be distinguished from the great mass of charter providers, this specially in the area hospitality / kitchen and diving. Astrid offers a very unusual luxury in the dining area: multi-course meals, very lovingly prepared with fresh ingredients and nicely presented (I was amazed, what she all prepared on fresh vegetables, we did not even dream about). We thought before the cruise that we would not choose a catamaran because of the food. I still think so, but the cuisine just tasted incredibly good, was a lot of fun and did us all so good. Laurent is a PADI dive instructor. He knows perfectly the beautiful snorkeling sites, looked for and found sharks for us and made it possible for me to dive with his calm and safe nature (I have not dived for 15 years!).
Astrid and Laurent love their lives and radiate that too. They are very open to their guests, totally uncomplicated and very professional. We have had so many inspiring conversations, laughters or simply spun « sailor’s yarn », that they really grew so close to my heart. I can highly recommend them to you.
I have dreamed of this trip, and you can certainly take it from me, that it was such a beautiful success.
Very Happy Clients
#1: Angry owls in their nest (there is some ham and grilled bread added to the veggies)
#2: Happy crab (some ham over cheese sandwich and again the 3 veggies Louis likes)
#3: Friends walking in the plate (only veggies)
# 5: Little bird in his nest (veggies over eggplant pancakes)
# 6: Pirate ship (with a lot of watermelon)
We had imagined our vacation before our arrival ... But it was not counting on your generosity and your kindness. Isolablue is a very comfortable catamaran to live on and we felt completely at ease. The day-to-day life will be difficult after having traveled so many miles. Astrid you have feasted us with your excellent dishes from morning to evening and the pretty culinary decorations for our "Loulou" were amazing. You radiate happiness and that's great to see. Thank you for these moments, these breathtaking landscapes, these helpful tips ... We leave enriched from this vacation and convinced that we like the boat life, especially since no one has been sick and we found now our sea-legs.
Let’s go .. All we have to do is just sail away! We will get organized and develop our plan to have a life as fulfilling as yours. One thing is certain, we will be happy to see you again and share a thousand new things hoping to offer you a little rosé on our future catamaran, ah yes a beer for Astrid.
Good luck friends and see you soon
What a fabulous week! I will never forget my wonderful
birthday celebration and lobster lunch on Tobago Cays, it was a very special experience. I cannot find the words to express it.
We feel very fortunate to have met you both. Astrid, you have set the bar so high I fear I will have to go to cooking school to be able to compete with your restaurant quality meals. We cannot wait for our next trio aboard Isolablue! (for cooking lessons!)
The “P” Family
Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing, exquisite vacation for all. Although we did not see the “great white”, you have had the luxury of being on board with at least two great whites (and growing).
Isolablue and your warm, generous hospitality & entertainment joins the “one thousand places to visit” before you die. We are pleased we added to your musical repertoire - Tobago Cays lobsters, Mustique, Bequia, Canouan diving are memories we shall blissfully remember in our dreams and family reunions.
Thank you both so much for making our vacation of “firsts” a memorable and spectacular trip!! The mahi mahi catch was definitely a hit, along with the school of dolphins, Jim’s much anticipated tial dive and the island pain-killers & rum punch were all incredible, but it was the two of you that brought it all together to culminate into out top 3 trips ever!! Your dedication to your guests, the meals, my spa visit and St. Vincent tour are just a few of the details that speak to the level & your expertise and professionalism. Can’t wait for the book!
All the best,
The “V” Family
Note from Broker:
I am pleased to say both sets of guests said they had a wonderful time and really enjoyed everything. I have also made my colleagues aware and to not hesitate to offer Isolablue for their clients, feel free to also use me as a reference for other brokers.
The yacht was very comfortable for a family of 5 and extremely well organized, clean and welcoming. We loved the itinerary route and the time spent at each spot. The sports and leisure activities/equipment on board were all great!
The food far exceeds expectations, and this is from a family who have traveled the world dining at the finest places. Astrid really works hard in the kitchen and all meals were truly memorable and tasty!
Our broker was always on hand to assist and very friendly. We highly recommend it and plan to join Isolablue again one day. 5 Stars all the way around!!
The 'B' Family
Too many thank you to list. Your unending hospitality was so appreciated. To go on a vacation and truly relax and be taken care of is a dream. To have that happen in the hands of such accomplished people - a pure treat. Getting to know you as friends and having the opportunity to experience a bit of your current life - pure joy. You both welcomed us into your home as strangers, but ended as friends.
We will figure out a way to take another trip under your care again. The experience was delightful, the good superior, the governing of the boat so competently organized, all the pieces created a very memorable vacation - one we will talk about for years. Thank you both. I truly hope our paths cross again.
Astrid & Laurent,
This past week has been one of the best and most memorable weeks of my life. I would not change a single thing about our trip, besides extending it :) I feel like every moment was perfection, largely due to your amazing hospitality. From almost the first moment I walked on Isolablue, I felt completely comfortable to be totally myself. From playing games to telling weird cat stories, I felt like we had already known you for years.
Thank you, Laurent, for certifying me as a PADI Advanced diver. You were an amazing instructor and guide and I truly think the night dive was one of my top 3 favorite moments of my life. Also, your boating skills were amazing and put us all at ease during our voyage.
Astrid, your cooking - wow. Every meal was mind-blowing. You’re absolutely a culinary genius and I’m afraid all my meals will seem boring after your feasts. Also, thank you for being my 2nd mom during the trip :)
Thank you both for such an amazing week. We’re not just customers, crew, or even just friends, I feel now we are family.
We will all miss you dearly.
Happy sailing, Love
Astrid & Laurent,
I can not thank you enough for making our vacation with you so much fun among family and I. It didn't take best a start time with you to know this was going to be a special trip. Your boat was very comfortable, you had all the water toys and a great itinerary. but from my perspective the critical element was you. You started as captain and crew and ended up as friends.
The fact that Astrid is a world class chef was cherry on the cake. We will talk about her masterpieces for a long time.
Thanks again. I sincerely hope that we keep in touch and that our paths cross frequently.
Dear Astrid & Laurent,
I would write this in French but I don’t know if I can express it well enough.
I am still swaying with the waves :) Thank you so much for the fantastic voyage on the sea!! There were so many moments and experiences we had together that were so memorable in such a very short time. For me, this trip was an actual gift from God. I believe He has blessed your lives and that He blesses others through you. Your hard work and generous care did not go unnoticed. There were things done and said that were from your hearts that have touched me and changed me in special ways - a sweet « undercurrent » that is without words. I am not exaggerating nor do I want to « put you up on a pedestal ». None of us are perfect but what gifts you have, you have shared that with us: your hospitality, your fun, and most of all for me, your genuine kindness. Thank you. Merci pour tout et que Dieu vous bénisse. Please come visit us in California.
Laurent and Astrid were extremely good and conscientious hosts. They worked hard to make every detail fall in place for us to have a good experience.
The boat is in impeccable condition, the food over the top in presentation and taste and the concern for our enjoyment ever present.
The boat itself is a very comfortable layout -she did say the sharing of one starboard toilet -a ( a personal choice they made to create the bigger master shower on the starboard side) works better with family vs two couples. There is clearly one stateroom that is roomier overall ( one Todd and I were in) though all three were able to sleep two. -it was very comfortable and though it had nice air conditioning, if we had wanted it, the sea breeze at night was our preference as the hatches were perfectly placed to enjoy the air. The deck in front was very comfortable and even had a couple chairs -we preferred the trampolines which they had replaced with a very nice feeling product-one that does not leave you with big criss cross marks ! :). Bryn’s preference was the bow!
It showed how much they love their boat and their life. They enjoy sharing what they have with others which made it easy to be in their home.
Laurent and Astrid are both captains, dive masters and cooks. They felt that was important in their business in case one had an issue that they could switch jobs and the clients would still be taken care of. Amazing couple. Not only that, but they work well as a team and clearly enjoy each other. It was hard to say goodbye even after only a week. We all felt that friendships were made! We would certainly use them again.
Astrid’s food was over the top. Each meal was outdoing the one before. A piece of art. We felt excited for each meal and were sometimes speechless when consuming it as the tastes were so amazing. It was incredible -the diversity of her meals and the presentation. She loved to plate her food like art. We were in awe that she could do that with her small kitchen. A master of provisioning!
They were extremely careful to pay attention to our wants as he picked locations for us.
He was able to make it so Bryn moved to the Advanced dive level during the trip. That was a plus. They also enjoyed diving together. He was very clear and she a happy student!!
For my sister, who speaks French, it was extra special. We also found out Astrid’s mother tongue is Swiss German. And, they speak a bit of Italian. ( I can’t say enough about how much they bring !)
Our favorite spot was the Tobago Cays -swimming around and with turtles was a special treat. Esp for Bryn. She found one turtle that didn’t mind being touched.
I would highly recommend Isolablue-it was a great trip.
Now, thank you so much for finding this boat for us and for so diligently working with me to make it all come together. You certainly were a big part of pulling this off. So, thank you.
I think we are now all hooked on this type of vacation. And, I hope to work with you again. Thank you for all your time dealing with my details.
Wow – Could not imagine a better way to ring in the New Year than with you both, on a beach, enjoying lobster, champagne, music…..Our family has had such an amazing week with you both. Nowhere in the world, have we had such incredible hospitality.
Astrid, your fun company and amazing cooking skills are very inspirational. My new goal is to learn to cook like you! Amazing!!
Laurent, thank you as well for the constant enthusiasm with my divers and the tasty evening cocktails. Everything was so special, perfect and we can’t wait to join you again on another family trip of a lifetime!
Le voyage était formidable! Merci beaucoup. Thank you so much Laurent for the incredible sailing, diving, music and dancing. The hospitality, food and wine were wonderful and we can’t wait to come back and sail with you again.
Thank you for all of the funny memories and great music!
Thanks for the great dives and great food and company!
Thank you for all the wonderful food and funny, funny moments!
Many thanks for making our dream a reality. This trip with you was simply magical, and in addition to discovering new paradise islands, we met two very beautiful people, and enjoyed every anecdote or experience you shared with us, just like the culinary delights of the Chef! We are already longing to come back for new adventures around Antigua. Good luck and see you soon, Pascale & Christine
Tuna and Mahi Mahi, Rum, Nap, Diving, Good little dishes, Hugs E&G
Astrid has a love of Hippos - hence the story!
You have found your way of life, enjoy it! We wish you "good luck" for the rest of your trip. May this adventure be rich in emotion, discovery and encounters. A&P
The sweetness of the blue and white of our cruise, Softened strawberry red, banana yellow. A&L sweet harmonious blend. We boarded their beautiful home, Charmed by Isolablue, we were waiting for the time to leave, the harbor and to be amazed. Delicious foods prepared by magic.
The choice of beautiful places for our anchorages, Everything was dreams and invitation to travel,
Delicious meals and evenings with candles. Cradled by the waves and their light ripples. We slept in our cabins, like angels. Lucky to have, with you, nice exchanges. For those sweet moments of happiness, a thousand thanks.
Aventure, Country, Sharks. A sample of words describing your adventure. We love you and hope to share many more great moments with you.
