His Virgin Islands restaurant career also included a stint as the food and beverage director at the famous Bitter End Yacht Club in Virgin Gorda. He parlayed his knack for entertaining and cooking, and 35 plus years of sailing experience into a very successful daysail business that he has run for the last 15 years, currently sailing out of Secret Harbour Beach Resort.

Chef Amanda Terry hails from South Texas, where friendly and generous Southern hospitality is a way of life. Growing up at the tip of the state next to the border and the Gulf of Mexico has given her entertaining and cooking style a definite Tex-Mex flair. Taking delight in making sure her guests are comfortable, well-fed and entertained, she honed her skills in B&Bs, boutique hotels and luxury fishing lodges from Austin to the Bahamas to the Virgin Islands.
