Captain Michael Plotner – Qualifications: -“USCG 100ton Masters -AEC1 -AEC2 -Powerboat Level II
–PADI Dive Instructor -STCW 95 -ENG1″
Raised along the banks of Lake Erie in Northwest Pennsylvania, Michael had a life-long affinity for bodies of water. Boating and fishing were among his favorite pastimes. His passion ultimately led him to California where he attained his education at Edinboro University before pursuing a career as a maritime professional. Chief Engineer on a 160′ schooner, Michael applies his knowledge and skill to provide guests with the utmost quality service- something which became clear when we toured one of his most recent projects this past September. With years spent working aboard various vessels, it’s easy to see why he stands out among other professionals. Nothing leaves this man uninspired and it certainly translates to his guests!

Born in San Antonio Texas, at the age of 13 Sara moved her parent’s 41′ Morgan sailboat with her family and spent another five years roaming all around the Eastern & Western Caribbean while she learned Spanish, Surfed, Sailed, & Lived a Life on the Ocean. This spurred her passion for maritime which has helped her serve over 12+ years of Maritime experience! Currently being the Chef onboard it would be an honor to please you with gourmet cuisine & appetizers served just how you like them! For adventure and/or if you are looking for exceptional service. Come see why Sara lives up to this standard every day aboard FLOATATION THERAPY in the USVI!
In conclusion, Michael and Sara first met on board a 160-foot sailing yacht in NYC while working as crewmembers. It took them no time at all to click. They had a strong connection both personally and professionally, as well as compatibility during rough seas. For two years they sailed together; exploring America’s coasts, the Caribbean, Bermuda, and just about everywhere else they could go before deciding to settle down in Florida. Now they’ve been sailing together for three years and are passionate about helping people find bliss out on the water aboard these magnificent vessels!
We recently chartered Floatation Therapy for six nights in the US Virgin Islands and we could not have been happier on our charter. Captain Mike and Chef Sara were absolutely exceptional and we loved our time with them. From the very beginning, it was clear that they wanted to make sure that our trip met the desires of the whole group. On our pre-call, they asked great questions, were professional and had great communication and were incredibly responsive.
Throughout the entire experience, they both were friendly, professional, kind, calm and just really, really good people. They listened to us and created an itinerary that was exactly what we were looking for and made sure that every experience was a positive one – from reserving moorings, reservations, finding great snorkel and dive spots, recommending great restaurants, connecting us with taxi drivers, etc. They absolutely went above and beyond in every situation.
Chef Sara’s food is incredible and she made some of the best food we’ve eaten. She baked bread (sandwich bread AND the most amazing banana bread we’ve ever tasted), made homemade pizza crust, created a wonderful blueberry compote from scratch, pickled her own jalapenos and just made everything wonderful without cutting any corners. Her salmon dish and curry pork dish were two of our favorites and we seriously commented after every meal how delicious the food tasted.
I also commented that the meal table always got very quiet once the food was served because we were all loving it so much. Most importantly, Mike and Sara are just good people. We loved being around them and enjoyed having them a part of our vacation. We will absolutely be rebooking with the two of them in the future!-The Cornell Family
Mike and Sara were stellar. They anticipated our every need, and responded to every request…immediately. Mike was an amazing bartender and skilled sailor and diver and Sara a very accomplished chef and all around fun interesting travel mate. They were relaxed and welcoming and made us instantly comfortable on board They went above and beyond to make this adventure everything we had hoped.
I’d have to say it was a 10 (out of 5 stars) for us all. I wouldn’t change one aspect of our time on board!
We hope to book w Mike and Sara next February but have to get the rest of our party on board first. I will be reaching out for sure. Cannot wait!-The Griffiths
For Mike and Sara – our amazing crew who saw to our every need, from drinks to food!! Sara’s gourmet cuisine (5 star chef) to Mike’s maritime experience with navigation anchorages and life on board in general. Mike and Sara’s incredible knowledge of sea life and boating from years of experience is difficult to match. We could not have asked for a better crew on such a well appointed and awesome boat! It was a perfect vacation. Hope to see you again for a repeat experience!-Tricia
We know it would be a fabulous trip, but the experience surpassed our already high expectations! Sara and Mike – you are an incredible team that created and environment so calm, so perfect, so peaceful, and so satisfying! The food was divine! Snorkeling was spectacular…and the sailing was ideal… full of big winds blowing just the right way! We appreciate how you anticipated every need and offered lots of options to ensure each of us had a spectacular vacation! Thank you so much Cynthia for sharing your beautiful boat and crew! Looking forward to our next adventure together!!-Heather and Phil
