Hi Guys! I’m Captain Thomas. Everyone calls me Tommo. I was born and raised along the beautiful East coast of South Africa. The ocean has been a place where I have found the best in myself. I’ve surfed my whole life and competed in Skim boarding, eventually being introduced to sailing through my uncle.
I then got my captain’s ticket after high school and traveled 2/3rds around the world on a 70ft schooner with eight crew, 5 of which were from PNG! Thoroughly bitten by the sailing bug, I then moved onto a catamaran, helping as a 3rd to run ten pax dive charters for a company called Trade Winds for a year.
My proven ability allowed me to become the captain of running charter yachts. Looking for new challenges, I moved to bigger motor yachts and big sailing yachts as Mate and Bosun chartering all over the Caribbean. I’ve always had an enormous passion for meeting new people and experiencing the best of what the world has to offer. My team and I look forward to meeting you and showing you the best charter we offer.

I am a real small-town girl with big girl dreams. Growing up in one of South Africa’s smaller towns, entertainment and opportunities were limited. However, for a curious and imaginative young mind, possibilities abounded.
Seaside holidays especially fed my imagination and settled my soul. A deep affinity for the ocean developed – it’s a feeling of coming home; the vastness humbles me, along with a peacefulness that cannot be reproduced elsewhere.
As a child, baking was my introduction to the galley. Later, as a student, I practiced my cooking skills with my sometimes unsuspecting friends.
I have always been fascinated and intrigued by food, the flavor profiles, the presentation, and the sheer sensory experience of a dish.
When I realized nothing was holding me back, I took the leap of faith and decided to live my dream of being a Chef on a yacht in the Caribbean.
As a chef, I have found that I’m unafraid and adaptable to trying various cuisines. My charter experience has enhanced my ability to cook for many eating preferences. I am also lucky to be able to continue to learn and try new things every chance I get.
I’m an industry professional with qualifications such as a Super Yacht Culinary Course, Health and Safety Certificate, and my Divemaster qualification.
My zest for life and spirit of adventure – both in and out the galley – keeps me motivated and propels me towards the luxurious world of charters, cruises, and maritime cuisine.
