DECK & SYSTEMS
SEA of LOVE is now including as part the charter package, 2 days of 2-tank rendezvous diving on all 7 night charters. If the guests are non-divers, one of the dives will instead be a resort course. (That means the first day would be the resort course plus a single tank dive and 2 tank dives on the other day.)
SEA OF LOVE Crew Profile
Captain Joe Cazana has been sailing for the past 35 years. He learned to sail in 1975 after not being able to sail back the rental hobie cat and then the next day capsizing the same.rental cat in the channel off Waikiki Beach in Hawaii. He thought lessons might be a good idea.
Soon after the lessons he began bareboat-chartering in the BVI. Much like most bare boaters we see today, he didn’t have all that much experience. However he was a quick learner, he always brought the boat back and never capsized again.
In 1985 he began diving in the BVI recognizing the beauty of this whole new world opening up underwater. He traveled all around the Caribbean exploring its beauty.
So year after year of sailing he perfected his ability growing upon a wealth of experience. He began doing deliveries from NY to the BVI and back and does them to this day.
In 1992 inspired by his success he felt it would be nice to share this great sport with others and became certified by the ASA (American Sailing Association). He taught sailing on the Hudson River n NYC and also in Long Island Sound off City Island.
In 1994 he again, impressed with his abilities thought to get his Captain’s license as it would enable him to share his better boating experiences with others by sailing a boat for them as in being a charter boat captain in the BVI.
Well time went by as the wife was not ready to move south. Capt Joe in his on gong spirit to contribute to the sailing community joined in 1999 the NYPD Harbor Auxiliary and patrolled the NYC waterways, watching for boaters in distress. In 2002 Capt Joe moved his services to the Coast Guard Auxiliary as he was more interested in boaters in distress than catching that occasional bad apple in NYC.
Recently Capt Joe, hearing a call for help from Reef Check BVI, brought along his diving experience and answered with the same desire to contribute and protect those very reefs that brought so much pleasure to him and the people he entertained in the BVI.
Carol began sailing in 1995 with several sailing clubs in the NYC area. As her passion for sailing grew, she bought her first sailboat a 1982 Dufour 35 ft monohull. along with her husband Capt. Joe Cazana. Together they sailed around the NY area, in the Hudson River and Long Island Sound. In 2006 she bought her 2nd boat, a 44 ft Lagoon catamaran for charter sailing in the BVI. Carol with a flair for cooking has augmented her talents with many courses at the Culinary Institute of NYC.

Guests aboard SEA OF LOVE in July, 2015
Joe and Carol were wonderful hosts! Everything was exactly as they said and there were no bad surprises - only good surprises! We did a 7 day sailing trip around BVI with them and it was wonderful. Joe captained the boat and his wife Carol cooked us wonderful meals, made us great cocktails and waited on us the entire time! Most relaxing trip I've ever been on! This was my first time on a sailing trip and was a little nervous but everything turned out better than we could have hoped! Thanks Carol and Joe!...
Lana and Daniel Leonard
This was our first time visiting the BVI and first time staying on a boat overnight (and we chose to do so for 6 nights on the Sea of Love)! The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish. Carol and Joe not only took care of our every need with excellent food and service, but they made the whole experience special by teaching us about the islands, about sailing and their experiences while living and sailing the BVIs. Couldn't have asked for a better trip…
