Gio is a knowledgeable and friendly Captain who finds his fulfilment in life by connecting people with the sea and enjoying their experiences vicariously through them. Born and raised in London, his career began teaching sailing and windsurfing all over the world, before moving to Australia to become a marine biologist, conducting research and guiding marine wildlife tours. Eventually he bought his own 50ft sailboat and used it to lead documentary filmmaking expeditions thousands of miles around the Caribbean, resulting in work published by National Geographic. He is also an expert freediver and a PADI Divemaster. Gio takes great pride in ensuring the highest levels of safety onboard while helping guests to have the adventure of a lifetime.
Renee is a friendly Colorado girl passionate about creating healthy, first class dining experiences. After completing her degree in Education, she spent time teaching both physics outdoor pursuits. She has been working onboard sailing yachts for several years, mostly in the British Virgin Island and is also a PADI dive instructor. Renee places huge importance in connecting with each individual guest onboard her vessel, in order to identify and satisfy their own unique wants and needs. You will feel spoiled and well looked after under her care.
Abi is an experienced and creative chef who creates dishes inspired by Asian, European, American, and Mexican cuisines; the tasty result is her very own fusion of flavours from around the world. She began her career running a southern-American style, soul food kitchen at a restaurant in the heart of her hometown, Bristol, UK. She then took on the position of head chef at an award-winning gastro-pub, catering for 200+ guests. Later she began developing her acute skills in fine dining, beautiful plating, fermentation, and pickling as chef-de-partie at a high-end restaurant called The Ethicurean. Being an adventurous soul, her desire to travel took her next to Tulum, Mexico, where she worked as a private chef for a premier spa & retreat. Her most recent adventure has her joining the crew onboard Lolalita where she is now able to combine her passion for cooking delicious food with travel and a sense of adventure.

Gio and Renee,
Thank you so much for an amazing week. I know I speak for the entire family when I tell you we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Your sense of adventure and attention to the kids was as much a part of the trip as the boat herself. Everything was fantastic!!
Thank you for the wonderful slideshow and please forward along any additional pics you might have.
I have CC'd Sue and the girls on this and we look forward to staying in touch with you both. Good luck to you both and we wish you calm seas ahead. I hope our paths cross again soon.

We had a fantastic time on Lolalita!
The crew accommodated all of our needs and desires in order to make this trip unforgettable, especially for the kids. We threw a big birthday bash for our V.I.P. family member (stuffed animal Beaver) that included a customized, homemade beaver cake from the chef, streamers, and even fun hats! For Easter, first mate Renee created an easter egg treasure hunt that had everyone, even the adults, laughing and exploring. Each place that Captain Gio took us to was even more beautiful than the last. In the end the only issue was that we didn’t have enough time - so the crew let us extend our trip by 24 hours just to squeeze in even more fun and relaxation.
Thank you, Lola! - Jason
