Captain Derek Watkins

I was born and raised near Boston in a town called Reading, Massachusetts. I enjoyed spending time outdoors and playing various sports. During the summer, I used to go to a family campground near the White Mountains in New Hampshire. However, as I grew older, sports took over my life.

After graduating from Reading Memorial High School, I decided to pursue my passion for sports. I attended East Stroudsburg University in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, where I played college football. A few years later, I found myself living in Wells, Maine, and decided to pursue a different path. Following in my grandfather's footsteps, I became a bartender. This decision completely changed my life, allowing me to fund my love for traveling and adventure over the next 25 years.

During my time as a bartender, I not only mixed drinks but also acquired various other skills. I worked as a carpenter, a skis and snowboard technician, an Alaskan fisherman, a paint salesman, a tour manager, and even ran my own muscular therapy business. Throughout my journey, I called different places home including Boston, LA, Sitka Alaska, Aspen Colorado, Squaw Valley/North Lake Tahoe, New York City, and St. John in the US Virgin Islands.

However, my life wasn't all about work. I made sure to make time for fun and rekindled my love for the outdoors. I became passionate about activities like backpacking, snowboarding, mountain biking, and traveling. I had the opportunity to visit incredible places such as India, Nepal, Central America, and various states in the USA.

In 2003, I came across pictures of a place called Maho Bay on the island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands. Although I had knowledge that St. John or the US Virgin Islands existed, those photos left a lasting impression on me. I had the intention to visit several times over the years but it never worked out.

Eventually, while in New York City, I decided it was time for a change. I purchased a one-way ticket to St. John and on my very first day there, I secured a job as a bartender. However, it was on the third day that my life took a significant turn. I was invited to go sailing, an experience that would completely transform my life.

From the moment I set foot on that sailboat, I knew I wanted to learn how to sail and become a captain. Fast forward to today, and I have achieved that dream. I hold a USCG 100 Ton Masters License with Sailing Endorsements, along with CPR and First Aid certificates, and my STCW-95 qualification.

One quote that resonates deeply with me is from J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece, 'The Fellowship of the Ring.' Within the pages of this epic tale, Gandalf imparts his timeless wisdom to Frodo, saying, 'All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.' These words have been a constant source of inspiration in my life, motivating me to seize each day and make the most of every moment."

Now, in my 8th year in the US Virgin Islands, I am ready to assist you in executing your dream trip in a safe and knowledgeable manner. My primary goal is to ensure that your journey becomes a beautiful and unforgettable memory. You have chosen how to spend your time, and I am here to welcome you aboard!

Our fav memory or recommended activity snorkeling, watching the sunsets, listening to the sounds of the water in the moonlight, jumping off the top deck riding in the dinghy and sailing from one cove to another and of course meeting by Brianna - the best! Our goal for our annual family trip is to create memories to last a lifetime and this trip most certainly accomplished just that! Life at sea is pure magic and Derek and Brianna were the best crew we could have hoped for!
July 2023
This was an unforgettable vacation for all of us and we are so grateful for Chef and Captain Derek's hospitality. All of their accommodations were on point. If only we had listened to Captain Derek about going to the Baths before 7 am before the tourist shuttle boats came in. I think my favorite meal was the snapper which was out of sight! I know a few of us disagree on what our favorite meal was, which only means that every meal was fantastic. We appreciate all the luxurious touches - the great quality, reef friendly shampoos and soaps. Having our towels our to dry and finding them all folded up, organized by person in the morning. This team went above and beyond to make us feel at home, safe and entertained the whole week. Please give our best to starfish alley and turtle town. Forever grateful
March 2023
We had a wonderful time! I was very nervous about being on a boat for a week. I hadn't been sailing for years and I have been dealing with health issues recently. There was nothing to worry about! D & H were so considerate and responsive that the week was a relaxing adventure the entire time. Snorkeling was a big hit with us and I knew of the best spots and the best things to look for. I learned some great turtle spotting techniques and snorkeling tips. The food was excellent and it had such interesting things to say about the dished and the broad focus of knowledge and inspiration. The jerk chicken and lamb chops were probably our favorites. They were both such great company – friendly and attentive. We owe them so much for our very special time. P.S. I forgot to mention the Painkillers!
March 2023
We had an amazing time celebrating my friends 60th birthday! We have been to the Virgin Islands many times and it has easily become one of our favorite destinations. Living on the water was a very different and fabulous perspective. Trip of a lifetime! The yacht was a perfect vessel for us, and our crew - Captain Derek and his first mate were so much fun, knowledgeable and skilled both on and off the boat. Thank you for a memorable 7 days, and for taking such good care of us!
January 2023
The trip was absolutely fantastic! From start to finish, Derek and chef took care of our every need. The food was amazing – chef fusion of southern soul and Caribbean was to die for. She was very flexible to satisfy our palettes. She is also an extremely friendly, outgoing and generous...we loved hearing her stories. Derek, was an amazing captain. He 100% met our desires to be in less than populated areas, hike to get experience and he was phenomenal tour guide on snorkeling expeditions! We saw so much memorable life in general but he was able to point out things we never would have noted on our own. His great guide on land as well.
January 2023
This was our second time on charter, the first was in the BVI. What a great trip! Captain Derek and Chef were excellent hosts. And for the record, that is the correct spelling of her name. St. John was much more peaceful than I expected. The National Park has done a great job of preserving the area. We hike to snorkel and Derek showed us some great spots. Far and away the best snorkeling we have done. His knowledge of the reef and sea life, and hiking made the week educational. Chef knows how to cook! You will not be disappointed. I honestly cant pick a favorite meal, it was all very good. Derek and Chef made a good time. We can't wait to come back again but for now its back to New England. Thanks again. Craig, Nicole, Chatham, Benjamin, Cooper and Foster

Our fav memory or recommended activity snorkeling, watching the sunsets, listening to the sounds of the water in the moonlight, jumping off the top deck riding in the dinghy and sailing from one cove to another and of course meeting by Brianna - the best! Our goal for our annual family trip is to create memories to last a lifetime and this trip most certainly accomplished just that! Life at sea is pure magic and Derek and Brianna were the best crew we could have hoped for!

This was an unforgettable vacation for all of us and we are so grateful for Chef and Captain Derek's hospitality. All of their accommodations were on point. If only we had listened to Captain Derek about going to the Baths before 7 am before the tourist shuttle boats came in. I think my favorite meal was the snapper which was out of sight! I know a few of us disagree on what our favorite meal was, which only means that every meal was fantastic. We appreciate all the luxurious touches - the great quality, reef friendly shampoos and soaps. Having our towels our to dry and finding them all folded up, organized by person in the morning. This team went above and beyond to make us feel at home, safe and entertained the whole week. Please give our best to starfish alley and turtle town. Forever grateful

We had a wonderful time! I was very nervous about being on a boat for a week. I hadn't been sailing for years and I have been dealing with health issues recently. There was nothing to worry about! D & H were so considerate and responsive that the week was a relaxing adventure the entire time. Snorkeling was a big hit with us and I knew of the best spots and the best things to look for. I learned some great turtle spotting techniques and snorkeling tips. The food was excellent and it had such interesting things to say about the dished and the broad focus of knowledge and inspiration. The jerk chicken and lamb chops were probably our favorites. They were both such great company – friendly and attentive. We owe them so much for our very special time. P.S. I forgot to mention the Painkillers!

We had an amazing time celebrating my friends 60th birthday! We have been to the Virgin Islands many times and it has easily become one of our favorite destinations. Living on the water was a very different and fabulous perspective. Trip of a lifetime! The yacht was a perfect vessel for us, and our crew - Captain Derek and his first mate were so much fun, knowledgeable and skilled both on and off the boat. Thank you for a memorable 7 days, and for taking such good care of us!

The trip was absolutely fantastic! From start to finish, Derek and chef took care of our every need. The food was amazing – chef fusion of southern soul and Caribbean was to die for. She was very flexible to satisfy our palettes. She is also an extremely friendly, outgoing and generous...we loved hearing her stories. Derek, was an amazing captain. He 100% met our desires to be in less than populated areas, hike to get experience and he was phenomenal tour guide on snorkeling expeditions! We saw so much memorable life in general but he was able to point out things we never would have noted on our own. His great guide on land as well.

This was our second time on charter, the first was in the BVI. What a great trip! Captain Derek and Chef were excellent hosts. And for the record, that is the correct spelling of her name. St. John was much more peaceful than I expected. The National Park has done a great job of preserving the area. We hike to snorkel and Derek showed us some great spots. Far and away the best snorkeling we have done. His knowledge of the reef and sea life, and hiking made the week educational. Chef knows how to cook! You will not be disappointed. I honestly cant pick a favorite meal, it was all very good. Derek and Chef made a good time. We can't wait to come back again but for now its back to New England. Thanks again. Craig, Nicole, Chatham, Benjamin, Cooper and Foster
