Chef/ First Mate
Captain: Ray Bryan
Captain Ray Bryan grew up skiing and hiking the Sierra Nevada mountains and has been sailing for 35 years. He holds a 100 ton US Coast Guard Captain’s license and is a avid diver and snorkeler. Ray has degrees in Mechanical Engineering, holds a Professional Engineering license, and has a very successful engineering firm specializing in product development for over 25 years.
First mate Jennifer met Ray skiing and shares his love of the outdoors. Jennifer taught school and has been a school administrator for many years, but her love of the sea and sailing has called her to a different life. Ray and Jennifer have both worked hard to fulfill their dream of sailing their own charter yacht in the Caribbean. Their goal is to insure you relax, enjoy your time on board, and experience the beauty of the Caribbean.
We CANNOT say enough about Ray and Jennifer. They welcomed us aboard Jalapeno with open arms and graciously shared her with us for our week away. Their attention to detail was second to none. All of our wants and needs were taken care of, from planning months ahead to the last time we stepped off the boat. All aspects of the trip -- from the islands we visited, to the delicious food they prepared for us, to all of our activities -- were completely centered around our interests. Ray and Jennifer made it a priority to make sure our experience on board went well above our expectations!
We can't wait to sail with them again!!!
The Jalapeño was in tip-top shape, clearly owned and maintained by intelligent and detail oriented people.
We were spoiled all week. From Bloody Mary second breakfasts to treks to fabulous lobster restaurants via Zodiac Boat. Top notch across the board.
We would absolutely recommend the trip to family and friends. My one word of caution is that an extremely tall person (I am 6'4") could be challenged in the front bed with a tall partner (5'8") due to the shape of the bow of the boat. Doable but tight. There is a second bedroom just feet away.
We had an amazing trip and adventure and recommend the Jalapeño and Ray and Jennifer highly!
Jalapeno is a beautiful boat! She is comfortable, spacious and full of character. Jalapeno is well-loved by her owners, Ray and Jennifer, and well equipped and provisioned. Anything you could want or need is on board. I believe there is a tremendous advantage to chartering from someone who owns the boat. Ray and Jennifer know all the nuances of Jalapeno and every day flowed seamlessly into the next. Safety was a priority and we always belt VERY safe and secure even on "windy" (for us!) days.
Our itinerary was "loosely" discussed before we started. We did hit all our "must see" locations. Being flexible enabled us to discover some amazing spots that were off the beaten path. Ray has some "secret" spots that included one night with not another boat in sight! We stargazed in one of the darkest places I've every been, saw the water glow with phosphorescent creatures, did a little hiking, paddle boarding, scootering on Anegagda and lots of snorkeling (which was amazing). We saw brilliant coral gardens, and Ray showed us sea creatures that we never knew existed. We held furry (and slimy) sea cucumbers, sea biscuits, sand dollars, conch and more. Ray found lobsters, rays and turtles and took amazing underwater pictures for us. I could go on and on about the snorkeling, it made us all want to get SCUBA certified. Ray is very familiar with the islands and when there were too many boats at one place, he always had a plan B (or C or D...)!
Ray and Jennifer are really fun and interesting hosts. We learned about the history of the islands and heard great stories about the locals and islands. Speaking of locals, it seems like Ray and Jennifer know them all--restaurant owners, bartenders, and various other island characters. Food and drink on the boat was wonderful and plentiful, and we had some very nice French wine every night. Afternoons we were treated to rum punch, margaritas and painkillers (or painkiller juice only for our 16 year old daughter).
