About PELICAN

Operating in the Caribbean

Pelican charters for up to ten guests in the beautiful, warm clear waters of the British Virgin Islands This exciting catamaran is one of the most successful charter yachts in the Caribbean, offering a high degree of luxury at a very affordable price, and she uses her space so efficiently that she seems larger inside than other catamarans of her size, having the room of a conventional 80-foot sailboat.

The rest of this website will tell you all about Pelican and her outstanding crew. No other catamaran has more activities, more amenities, or offers better value for the money. We hope that you will choose the award-winning Pelican for your next yacht charter in the Caribbean. Contact us through your favourite yacht charter broker.

Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for PELICAN
Captain: Paul Porter (31)

Paul Porter, 29, has had a love for life on the water since a very young age – sailing, surfing, competitive kite boarding and scuba diving. Being near or on the water has always been of great importance to him. Captaining boats up to 65 feet and hosting guests aboard is second nature to him. In 2010, Paul acquired the S/V Seaker, an Islander 30 moored in Seattle, Washington. After six years of ownership he has restored her from the keel up, learning many useful skills along the way. Paul has had the opportunity to lead sailing charters alongside his chef, first mate Eva Mrak-Blumberg in their home waters of the Puget Sound to Italy, Greece, Croatia, Sweden and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. You can also find Paul and Eva sailing the US Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands year round aboard S/V Pelican, a 58ft catamaran based out of Saint Thomas.

When not living a nautical life, Paul works in New York City as a documentary photographer and lighting director in the fashion industry. He is also a well recognized teacher of outdoor photography, kiteboarding and sailing who happily shares his knowledge and experience to guest on board.

Chef-Mate: Kristen Berg (31)

Kristen grew up in Colorado. She grew up hiking, camping and skiing and will tell you that her love of the outdoors was set in stone at birth. Visiting Hawaii every year as a child led to her love of the water. She was a certified Open Water Diver by the age of 14.

Kristen is no stranger to the galley. She has always loved cooking and has worked in or around professional kitchens since she was 16. In fact, after finishing college and Colorade State University, she worked with celebrity chef Tyler Florence in the Bay Area of California where she helped him open three different restaurants and two different stores. Working closely with the chefs as well as the Sommelier’, she gained a very firm grasp of what it takes to make an amazing meal with top notch service!

Surfing, sailing, snorkeling and being near the ocean are some of her earliest and fondest memories. That, combined with her love of gourmet cuisine ultimately led her to where she is and what she is doing… Hosting, guiding and spoiling the guests aboard Pelican!

From Kristen:

“I could not pass up the opportunity to combine my two passions in one profession! I get to meet amazing people from all over the world, cook gourmet meals and travel the islands at the same time! I’m still waiting to wake up!”

Just wanted to send you a short note about our BVI charter. Paul and Kristen were awesome. The trip in itself was great and very worth it but the two of them took it over the top. Please relay our feelings to the boat owners also. I am speaking for all eight of us that went on the charter. We have highly recommended both your company and the boat and crew to our friends.

Thanks,

Tom

First of all it was a fantastic trip we enjoyed the week with the boys and girlfriends and the surprise was a hit. Eva and Paul were the perfect fit for us and the boys. We had amazing meals and we did lots of stuff whether it was heading into shore to visit a bar or using the toys on the boat. We told them we would be doing a write up on trip advisor for them as well.

Guests aboard PELICAN in early January, 2017, said:

Missing you guys already. Thanks so much for being such wonderful hosts.

You 2 made our trip with your delicious food and the entertainment/skill of Captain Paul. There was just the right amount of relaxation and activities. The guys and gals tell everyone it was the best trip of their life, and they have all been to Asia, Europe and Mexico, etc.

We really enjoyed our stint at the helm.

Thank you for sharing your love of BVI with the Murphys!

Paul and Eva are tremendous. It's not easy to welcome new guests into your life, andthey did it with grace and ease. We see the USVI/BVI trip as one of the most amazing and rewarding trips we take every year. To have trusted crew that have a genuine concern for our well being - in addition to some exceedingly brilliant meals - I'm honored to have their company. And yes, he's a brilliant photographer. And yes, Eva cooks up a storm. Bravo!

We had an amazing vacation aboard the Pelican. The boat is clean, newly renovated and absolutely beautiful sailing along the water. Paul is an amazing captain. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of sailing. We learned a lot and it was so great that he was willing and interested to teach us about sailing and he is a lot of fun! Eva is an amazing chef! I still dream about her incredible meals. From her special cocktails at sunset to her pulled pork that she was making for days, I had some of the best meals of my life. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was absolutely beautiful in presentation and had incredible flavors. She also makes sure that she knows the likes and dislikes of everyone on the boat so that she can ensure that everyone has a great meal every time. This was our second boat vacation and again we loved every minute of our trip!

...For me, I say without hesitation that this was the greatest vacation of all time. It actually felt more like two trips: an exotic adventure crossed with a five star food and wine excursion. 

 ...The Boat – so much larger than expected. The rooms were two to three times larger than the beds. The showers were large even though we chose to use the outdoor showers after exiting the water. We found that the community areas were perfect to hold all nine of us and there were also many places to hide and get some alone time when needed.

...Paul – Paul has this amazing knack of anticipating our needs. When we wanted adventure, he gave us adventure. When we wanted to get off the boat, get off the boat, just hang and relax, he always was one step ahead of us. He was so accommodating and could easily transition between this first class butler/attendant, adventure surfer/guide, DJ, bartender, and all while safely navigating the BVIs! 

 ... Eva - She spoiled us with super creative, beautifully plated dishes. I literally could not wait to see what she prepared next from breakfast to lunch followed by a post activity snack and dinner. ...Every meal had different proteins, varied ethnicities, fresh veggies, and amazing flavors. She constantly surprised and taught me so much about new combinations and techniques. Long story short, Look up the Pelican/EVA/PAUL for some amazing food, adventure, relaxation and safe non sun-burnt fun in the BVI’s. We cannot wait to sail with them again.

Our kids still ask about Paul and Eva. They were amazing teachers about the craft of sailing and all things BVI. Safety came first; they made it fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents. They took all of our (often disparate) plans and wishes into consideration and did so openly and graciously. Christmas 2016 was among the best for us (maybe the single best?) and Paul, Eva and Pelican deserve credit and many thanks for that!
