Captain: Philip Cerne
Salty Girl Catamaran Charter
Owner Operated & Sails with 2 US Coast Guard Captains, Ensuring Your Safety and Fun. Our numerous and current reviews assure you of a positive Caribbean adventure.
Although not unheard of, I hold 2 Licenses; earning not only a US Coast Guard Captains license, but also a Commercial Pilot’s, as well. Sailing and flying are in many regards similar. Passenger safety, comfort, and destinations are the focus.
I enlisted in the United States Army after obtaining my Eagle Scout status at age 17. The GI Bill enabled me to pursue my undergraduate degree in Aviation Flight and Management from Southern Illinois University. Both Tresa and I hold Masters Degrees. My career path did not take me flying, however, but to logistics with a wholesale distribution business. It was a three year plan to leave our life on the Canadian boarder in NYS, and transition to the Caribbean. Truly one of the best decisions of our lives!
The $100,000 refit on Salty Girl was mostly done by Tresa and I. If you would like to know more about boat systems on the ocean, just ask, as I will enjoy discussing them with you. The helm station can comfortably sit 3 people, so don't hesitate to come try your hand at the wheel. Interested in listening to music? You can choose the venue from my pre-made playlists or Bluetooth from your own devise. Our 9 speaker Fusion Stereo sounds terrific turned up loud! Please tell us if you are camera shy. I enjoy taking and sharing pics of your party!
I am excited to share my love of the Virgin Islands with you aboard Salty Girl. As a career New York State public education teacher, I know how important family vacations and couples’ retreats are. Let Salty Girl lead you on the perfect escape. Our goal is for you to feel the boat as your private resort from which to reconnect and explore nature. Options include snorkeling, snuba, fishing, kayaking, hiking, binoculars from the boat, or just soaking in the sun. However you choose to customize your day, know that your safety, as well as private time, will be foremost.
Meal time on Salty Girl is special. As the primary cook, I make sure every dish is home-made with an extra dose of love. Years of running an organic farm, feeding our children, and enjoying good food all lead me to the dishes prepared specifically for you and your preferences. I am honored to have professional chefs and guests request recipes, so don't hesitate to ask!
Philip and I are very proud of the 4 adult children and one son-in-law we share. No grand kids yet!

Thanks for your knowledge of the islands, that made it fun. The food was delicious and your hospitality was the best!
Accommodating our 3 generations on two boats with blended meals, trips, and suggestions for what to do where was a big help in making the trip more fun.

PS I get the biggest kick watching my kids enjoy the snuba! They LOVED it
From our first hug on the dinghy dock to our last moments, your hospitality showed no bounds! We all thank you with grateful hearts for such a truly wonderful family trip. Salty Girl is a BVI treasure... beautifully appointed and very comfortable. You have both mastered in making everyone feel at home and getting folks into their comfort zones while sharing your abundant knowledge of your beautiful islands. Your love for what you do exudes in every moment. Tresa, our bellies were kept full with all your delicious cooking. You both made sure that your home felt like our home and completely spoiled us. It was truly just a wonderful experience from start to finish!

Thank you so much for a wonderful Honeymoon! The week we spent with you flew by but was jam packed with so many spectacular adventures, fabulous food, and memories we will never forget. You knowledge, hospitality, generosity and love of the sea make us come back again & again. See you on our 1 year anniversary.

As a diabetic, Tresa made sure I had the appropriate food at the right times of the day. The locations we visited were spot on for what we wanted to do. Tresa and Philip made us feel like we were the only people on board. Our first anniversary will be here soon!

Brad & Linda,
My kids (above)! The girls agreed to come on an adventure with me! Tresa and Philip were amazing with every detail! From a welcome note to an explanation of absolutely everything we could have asked for a more productive, relaxing, eventful, happy trip! We love you Salty Girl!
We loved everything about our time aboard Salty Girl. The boat is beautiful and very clean. Plus, it has everything you could need to have a great time snorkeling, kayak, paddle boards, and more). Both Philip and Tresa are extremely knowledgeable of the islands and created our custom itinerary for us based on our preferences/had tons of interesting information to share. We were brought to remote areas that are hard to access via car and had the best time snorkeling with sea turtles, hiking to beautiful vistas and more.
The food we had was delicious (we had fresh homemade pasta and bread for dinner!) and Tresa went above and beyond to accommodate for my vegetarian needs during our stay. Both Philip and Tresa were kind, caring, and enjoyable to be around. We felt safe aboard the ship at all times and enjoyed every second of exploring the US Virgin Islands via boat, which was totally different experience from seeing it from land.
If you are looking for a charter, you should definitely book these guys. We hope to be back one day.

This trip had been one of our bucket list trips for years. Originally planned as an anniversary trip turned into a family vacation. We are so glad we brought the kids along. Reading their comments on the previous page show us that it was a trip of a lifetime for them as well. What a week it has been! You were so kind to welcome us into your home and show us your "neighborhood". We have enjoyed the hikes, fishing, snorkeling and views! We enjoyed getting to know y'all and listening to knowledge about the sights. The boat was amazing with all of the comforts of home. Thanks so much for a great trip. Thanks for your patience with us and the kids. You were wonderful hosts.

You two are nothing short of amazing! Our family had a magical time on your beautiful Salty Girl. We enjoyed all of Tresa's delicious meals - all homemade - ice cream, bread, pasta and the beast loaded nachos and pain killers! I loved hearing Tresa and Philip explain all of our surroundings - the islands and their history. Thank you for being so kind, generous and welcoming to our family. We will never forget our time on Salty Girl - we'll definitely be back for more!

Our family came together in closeness on Salty Girl and in 'the gorgeous Virgins." Simply relaxing and beauty.
Crew: Philip and Tresa work together as a kind and coordinated team; always focused on safety, but with the special warmth and hospitality. Tresa made the best meals of our trip. (Ice cream, homemade pasta, waffles and my favorite: tuna seared and a delicious salad. My kids (17, 19, 20) gobbled up everything too.
Salty Girl: There are surprisingly many places for a family of 5 to sit and lounge on this gorgeous and solid vessel. We loved stargazing into the night... shooting stars, satellites and good conversation.
Meg, Mike, Chris, Jenny and Josie
Tresa and Philip were very knowledgeable and fun to be around. We had a great itinerary for us and the kids, we felt very safe and we had an amazing time!

You both are the greatest hosts and looks after our every need. The seal was healing, beautiful and called to us. It was an amazing adventure to last a lifetime. We will be back... time & time again. We are so grateful for a most perfect day.

Meals are prepped on the boat and made from scratch. No one, young or old will ever be hungry on this cruise. Every meal is freshly made each day. The best meal is the Linguine and white sauce is haven. She makes the noodles and sauce on board that day. Every meal is wonderful and a heavenly experience.
This crew can take you to the right bay to find that special gift for the Family members and mother in law. Maybe visit the floating bar with music.
We could not ask for a kinder host and thoughtful crew (Army Family) of two. Everything is perfect and thought out. We will return.
