Captain: Chino Chonowitz

MEET THE CREW:
CAPTAIN: CHINO CHONOWITZ
CHEF: NOA NEUMANN

Chino always had a passion for travel and the water. He grew up in a small village in Israel surrounded by rivers and nature. As a young adult, restless and ready to travel, Chino took himself off to Africa for a year and decided then that he needed to come up with an idea of how to combine work and travel. While in South Africa he was exposed to the yachting industry in Cape Town and the prospect of becoming a charter yacht captain. Chino returned home with a dream to sail in the Caribbean. He received his 100T captain’s license and began working for a charter company running sailing charters in the Mediterranean.
Noa grew up in Jerusalem in the mountains and as a child she always enjoyed water sports and swimming. As a young adult she traveled to the USA, Central America and the Caribbean for just under 12 months. Noa then completed her degree in social work, met Chino and made the wonderful decision to join him.

Noa comes from a huge family with many cousins and their children. Her family’s favorite pastime is getting together around the dining table with numerous family members for meals every weekend.
Since the age of 16, she has worked in restaurants and coffeeshops as a waitress, bartender and a manager. She loves the hospitality industry and it’s a huge part of her personality. Her love and passion for cooking has grown immensely since working on charters. Her cuisine is Mediterranean based incorporating influences from her trip to Central America and the Caribbean.

After Noa and Chino met they were offered an opportunity to work together in the Caribbean. They worked in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for a year and then for a further 5 months in the northern Caribbean. Together, they completed more than 25 charters.

Chino loves boats, is an experienced captain with great patience and is always keen to teach others how to sail. He is also an avid fisherman with loads of experience in fish preparation having worked in aquaculture for a year. Chino loves nothing better than to assist guests with fishing from the yacht offering a sea-to-table experience with the catch of the day.

Chino and Noa are positive, friendly and engaging individuals who work extremely well together ensuring that you will have a 5-star experience, with great food, excellent service and loads of fun.
They love games and love to play and teach new games that they have on board. Be aware of Chino’s winning streak!
Both of them are scuba divemasters offering scuba onboard. Both love sport and exercise, and if you are an early bird, you'll catch them exercising on the bow of the boat. They have equipment onboard and will be more than happy to lead guests in a workout session (with or without equipment) or lead a Pilates class if preferred. These sessions would either take place on the boat or on the beach.

Chino and Noa can’t wait to have you onboard True Story and share this beautiful part of the world with you.

Reviews

What An Impact You had On Us1

"This is the first charter where we truly feel like we will be leaving our family behind when we depart. We hope you know how amazing you both are and what an impact you had on us in just a week's time."

"You guys were absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for all you did to make this charter so much fun for all of us. We will miss you guys!"

" You are now our favorite crew and we don't just say that to anyone! You made us all feel welcome and created such a fun charter! for us all." 
Gourmet Meal and Wonderful Smiles!
Thank you for the Walker Family Dream Vacation! Noa and Chino are the best crew in the Caribbean! We will always remember the amazing gourmet meals complete with floral garnishes, paprika tullies and all of the homemade breads. We are definitely taking new recipes to Indiana! We will miss Chino's wonderful smile and competitive game nights. Hiring the two of you was our best decision ever! We will miss you and think of you often! maybe our paths will cross again someday!
The Best Crew!
What a great trip! Thank you for making it a wonderful week for us. it was wonderful to spend birthday celebrations and Father's Day on your boat. You are a fantastic couple! Noa's cooking was terrific! Love all the homemade breads, crepes and main courses. Chino has to be the best captain in all the USVI and BVI. We are looking forward to coming back again!
Wonderful Week.
Thank you both for a WONDERFUL week.
the food was amazing. We are all going home a little larger. :) We enjoyed all the snorkels and activities. We will miss the family meetings and game time. Master Chef was a huge hit and we loved Noa letting us share her kitchen. Everything was fabulous!!! We miss you guys already
One Of The Most Talented Chefs
We cannot express through words how much we loved our time on True Story. We along with our family of 7 adult children are seasoned travelers. We all were blown away with the attention to detail for our happiness that Noa and Chino extended to us. 
The carefully navigated week by Chino and Noa allowed us to dive every day at a different location. Chino was  always a step ahead of the plan.
It was very hard not to beg Noa to come home with us. She is one of the most talented chefs we've ever had and a delight to be with.
We planned a murder mystery dinner one night that they helped me orchestrate, and it could not have been more fun.
The True Story was the perfect size for our party of 9 adults. Each room had very comfortable mattresses, sheets and towels. The master was very roomy and had plenty of space. The size of the boat gave us a very smooth sail even in the rougher waters when sailing to new destinations. We had a very meaningful time and would rate it a perfect "10".

Two Of The Nicest People We Have Ever Met!
We had the pleasure of chartering with Chino and Noa. This was truly a trip of a lifetime! My husband and I were traveling with 4 teenagers that were very active. Chino and Noa made us feel at home from the moment we stepped on board. They became like family in the short time we had with them. The food was excellent! Noa definitely took our experience to a whole new level with her excellent cuisine. Chino was always keeping the kids entertained with water sports and his awesome dice game.They are both amazing with kids and two of the nicest people we have ever met.
We hope to keep in touch with them and would definitely love to travel with them again. We love them both as they made this a trip to remember."
You Guys Are Epic!
We had a great trip. You guys are epic! We loved the trip.

No words!! Thank you for the experience, the most amazing that we have ever had!

Thank you so much for an amazing time. Both of you do such a great job. Hope to be back soon.
We Absolutely Loved Our Experience!
We absolutely loved our experience. Your hospitality was beyond our expectations! You thought of everything to make us happy and always did it with a smile! You are an amazing duo and we wish you many happy years ahead. Thank you for the spectacular cuisine to the great itinerary. Looking forward to our next visit.
It was incredible!
What a wonderful experience. Your smile, knowledge and enthusiasm made our trip an adventure. We enjoyed your choice of locations and nightly coves. We looked forward to each meal for its variety, multicultural taste and freshness, not to mention the presentation.

The cocktails were never ending! We have done these trips before but never with such a great crew. We hope to see you again on our next cruise.

It was incredible!
Made Our Charter Exceptional
You both truly made my 60th birthday a trip to remember! Having never met us before our departure you both really stepped up and made our charter exceptional!
Thanks for making memories.

Fantastic - Personable - Great Chef - Great Captain
Nothing Short of Magical!
Our week on True Story was nothing short of magical and exceeded our expectations on every level. Captain Chino and First Mate Noa are truly gifted at what they do. They made us feel right at home and relaxed from the moment we set foot on the boat until we sadly had to say our goodbyes at the end of the week.

True Story is like a floating villa that is equipped to make your trip as relaxing or as action packed as you’d like. Chino and Noa were effortlessly able to accommodate our entire group as we all engaged in different activities, including stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba, fishing, and tubing behind the dinghy. Each day brought us to a new gorgeous location and a new adventure.

The kids loved experiencing the transit sails either from the dolphin seats or the nets, occasionally getting splashed or happily getting drenched by a quick passing tropical rain burst. Some of the trip highlights were swimming with dolphins in Brewer’s Bay, scuba diving for lobster near Caneel Bay, paddling in Magen’s Bay, and tubing at dusk in Rendezvous Bay.

Each night we laughed and celebrated the day during Captain’s Cocktail Hour, where the adults enjoyed exquisite cocktails made by the captain and an amazing platter of hors d'oeuvres from Noa, all while enjoying 360-degree sunset views from the fly-bridge.

The food on our charter was also exceptional and led to many recipe requests. Pleasing the adults with delicious meals that are beautifully plated was one thing; however, winning over the group of picky kid-eaters was arguably the harder task. Noa easily delivered on both challenges and did so with a smile and with no visible stress. Her patience and love of the children was impossible to miss throughout the week.

In Summary, our time on True Story was easily one of our best and most memorable vacations to date. In addition to lifelong memories, we feel like we made wonderful friends in Chino and Noa and can’t wait to return to True Story.
