Captain: John Mikulka
A thirst for adventure and experiences encapsulate who Captain John is. Growing up in Michigan he developed a lifelong love of hockey and working on hot rods and classic cars with his dad. He’s earned a Master Mechanics degree; not to mention learning to surf, sail and dive while living in Florida. He’s currently working towards his private pilot’s license when he’s not busy sailing the high seas. Being in the water or on it has become his chief form of recreation and relaxation, and he loves to share these passions with his guests.
With over 75,000 nautical miles of experience in South America, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean and Florida Captain John is more than comfortable on the water. John even holds thirty-year speed records for both north and south bound transits along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Working with Heather he enjoys crafting custom experiences for guests whether it’s finding amazing snorkeling, quiet coves, or sailing the days away.
A life-long Mainer who was born loving the sea and her state's nautical traditions. She was raised as all Mainers are to value hard work, enjoy dry humor, respect Mother Nature and love all well-made things. Her grandmother fostered in her a love of simple, delicious meals with an emphasis on from-scratch making and baking with fresh, wholesome ingredients.
In 2015 Heather was hired on a historic schooner - from the moment she stepped aboard, she was utterly hooked. Working onboard combined her loves of sailing, hospitality, and the challenges of cooking from-scratch meals for thirty people on a woodstove in a tiny galley on a rolling ship. She returned for several summers to teach, but also to learn and improve her sailing, windjamming, and culinary skills. Working with John, Heather has learned how to chart, navigate, and work the systems on any boat.
Seeking new waters and fresh opportunities, John and Heather became a delivery team, sailing thousands of nautical miles together. On crewed charters they create customized experiences for their guests: no two charters are the same.
In their off time they travel to new places to surf, eat, dance, and sail together. Their enthusiasm for life, adventure, teaching, and all things ocean make them perfectly suited to create a once in a lifetime experience for their guests.
Really, nothing to complain about besides me ruining my phone and Mark, not my Mark, but the other Mark with us, stepped on a black sea urchin and got all the needles in his foot and toes. We had to call an ambulance. We were at Oppenheimer Beach. They didn’t treat him though. Said they would dissolve on their own, and they did.
We snorkeled several times and saw lots of sea turtles and stingrays and got to hold a sea urchin and huge starfish. Lots of yummy food and drinks....I could go on and on. Will post more pics on my Facebook page in a day or two when I have time to go through them all.
I’m ready to go back next summer! Thanks again for helping me with this trip!!

We had an amazing trip with Capt John & Heather! They went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. They even toured us around Anegada in a jeep/truck for the entire day when they could have had the time to themselves! The food was amazing! Who thought you could prepare gourmet meals in a TINY kitchen with no stove! And the portions were perfect. Not too heavy. Best of all, they are both experienced sailors so we had many beautiful sails with them! We were pleasantly surprised at how well they knew the USVI and BVI islands, as they are somewhat new to the area, but you would never know by the knowledge of snorkel spots, restaurants, island history, etc that they shared with us. We would definitely sail again with them!
Heather and John are true professionals. From the moment we met them the hat two main focuses, safety and comfort.
Both of them took time to make sure all were having a good time and were quick to inform us of how to safely enjoy all aspects of the boat and the islands we visited.
Multiple times we had to take a dingy to the islands, here is were their experiences dealing with guests who are not proficient with getting in and out of a dingy was very evident. Never once did I feel unsafe or nervous.
Heather is an amazing chief. Breakfast and lunch was served on the boat and each one was better than the next. Always request her chorizo tacos omg they were good...
I can’t imaging not requesting this dynamic, professional and extremely fun team for my next trip...
