Captain John

A thirst for adventure and experiences encapsulate who Captain John is. Growing up in Michigan he developed a lifelong love of hockey and working on hot rods and classic cars with his dad. He’s earned a Master Mechanics degree; not to mention learning to surf, sail and dive while living in Florida. He’s currently working towards his private pilot’s license when he’s not busy sailing the high seas. Being in the water or on it has become his chief form of recreation and relaxation, and he loves to share these passions with his guests.

With over 75,000 nautical miles of experience in South America, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean and Florida Captain John is more than comfortable on the water. John even holds thirty-year speed records for both north and south bound transits along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Working with Heather he enjoys crafting custom experiences for guests whether it’s finding amazing snorkeling, quiet coves, or sailing the days away.

Chef Heather

A life-long Mainer who was born loving the sea and her state's nautical traditions. She was raised as all Mainers are to value hard work, enjoy dry humor, respect Mother Nature and love all well-made things. Her grandmother fostered in her a love of simple, delicious meals with an emphasis on from-scratch making and baking with fresh, wholesome ingredients.

In 2015 Heather was hired on a historic schooner - from the moment she stepped aboard, she was utterly hooked. Working onboard combined her loves of sailing, hospitality, and the challenges of cooking from-scratch meals for thirty people on a woodstove in a tiny galley on a rolling ship. She returned for several summers to teach, but also to learn and improve her sailing, windjamming, and culinary skills. Working with John, Heather has learned how to chart, navigate, and work the systems on any boat.

Seeking new waters and fresh opportunities, John and Heather became a delivery team, sailing thousands of nautical miles together. On crewed charters they create customized experiences for their guests: no two charters are the same.

In their off time they travel to new places to surf, eat, dance, and sail together. Their enthusiasm for life, adventure, teaching, and all things ocean make them perfectly suited to create a once in a lifetime experience for their guests.

My husband and I had the best time with our daughter and son-in-law sailing on the Appledore! What an amazing way to spend an afternoon. Captain John and crew Sydney and Jack were engaging and entertaining. We laughed, enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine, drinks and each other's company. John shared the history of both the boat and the Camden community. We would do this again in a heartbeat!
2019
The sail was excellent, saw a variety of excellent views, it was very smooth going. My favorite part of the sail was the crew. Captain John is very knowledgeable and has a terrific sense of humor.
2019
We've been sailing on the Appledore every summer for 20 years, and the crew never disappoints. Particularly Capt John and his crew, they are excellent and made it a fun trip. Even learned things about the area we never knew.
2019
Fortunate to have picked a beautiful day to sail. The Captain and crew were awesome and engaging. They paid attention to detail and guests. Captain was very informative and genuinely cared about what he does. Worth the price of admission!! Two thumbs up!!!!
2019
I took my students of the Appledore for our class field trip. Everyone was so amazing and kind. Captain John taught them about sailing and answered all their questions. Truly a great experience for my students. Everyone was professional, but still knew have to have fun.
2019
Captain John warmly welcomed us on the dock and introduced us to Gino the first mate and Phil the deckhand. Captain John was very informative on the history of the schooner we were on among others in the water around us. We had a long true sail due to the great breeze this time of year. The crew handled her like champs and everyone around had a fantastic time!
January 2020
John and Heather were fantastic! They are not only professional and accomplished sailors, but are friendly, thorough and accommodating. First class service all the way around. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on Rumba, and are already planning another trip with them. Scott
January 2020
We had a great week of island hopping aboard the Rumba – we did seven different islands in our seven days. The boat’s accommodations were very nice and we had plenty of fresh water for showers and such. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with us all of the time, providing some high winds and multiple squalls. The good news was that the boat could sail really fast and we got to see multiple rainbows. I will give Captain John a lot of credit for always finding us a really calm harbor to sleep in. The crew made a lot of really good recommendations for where to visit, and then which bars or restaurants to go to once we got there. They also found us a bunch of really interesting places to snorkel. First Mate Heather did a really nice job with food prep on the boat – I especially recommend the ginger scones and the Mexican street corn. I would also like to thank Heather for her infinite patience while answering all of my questions regarding how to sail. Overall a great trip – I highly recommend the Rumba and its crew. Scott C
January 2020
This was my first trip like this. I had always wanted to take a cruise on a catamaran and island hop. Thought it would be an amazing experience and this trip was. Heather and John are true professionals. From the moment we met them the hat two main focuses, safety and comfort. Both of them took time to make sure all were having a good time and were quick to inform us of how to safely enjoy all aspects of the boat and the islands we visited. Multiple times we had to take a dingy to the islands, here is were their experiences dealing with guests who are not proficient with getting in and out of a dingy was very evident. Never once did I feel unsafe or nervous. Heather is an amazing chief. Breakfast and lunch was served on the boat and each one was better than the next. Always request her chorizo tacos omg they were good... I can’t imaging not requesting this dynamic, professional and extremely fun team for my next trip... -Kharl

Name: Deb Yacht: RUMBA with John Mikulkac and Heather Monroe Charter Dates: 2020-02-03 16:00 to 2020-02-10 12:00 Area Cruised: Virgin Islands Overall Rating: 5/5 1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Absolutely!! 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Absolutely! 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Absolutely! 4. Was the food good and well presented? Absolutely! It was amazing in taste and presentation! 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Absolutely! 6. Additional comments on your charter? We had an amazing trip with Capt John & Heather! They went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. They even toured us around Anegada in a jeep/truck for the entire day when they could have had the time to themselves! The food was amazing! Who thought you could prepare gourmet meals in a TINY kitchen with no stove! And the portions were perfect. Not too heavy. Best of all, they are both experienced sailors so we had many beautiful sails with them! We were pleasantly surprised at how well they knew the USVI and BVI islands, as they are somewhat new to the area, but you would never know by the knowledge of snorkel spots, restaurants, island history, etc that they shared with us. We would definitely sail again with them!
July 2020
The trip was great. We loved John and Heather. They were very knowledgeable and fun. We felt very safe in their hands. One of the highlights was getting to sail to St. Croix. They put up the sails and turned off the motor and the wind took over. It was amazing! Buck Island over there was awesome, too. Beautiful water and sand. We had the beach all to ourselves. Really, nothing to complain about besides me ruining my phone and Mark, not my Mark, but the other Mark with us, stepped on a black sea urchin and got all the needles in his foot and toes. We had to call an ambulance. We were at Oppenheimer Beach. They didn’t treat him though. Said they would dissolve on their own, and they did. We snorkeled several times and saw lots of sea turtles and stingrays and got to hold a sea urchin and huge starfish. Lots of yummy food and drinks....I could go on and on. Will post more pics on my Facebook page in a day or two when I have time to go through them all. I’m ready to go back next summer! Thanks again for helping me with this trip!!

This was my first trip like this. I had always wanted to take a cruise on a catamaran and island hop. Thought it would be an amazing experience and this trip was. Heather and John are true professionals. From the moment we met them the hat two main focuses, safety and comfort. Both of them took time to make sure all were having a good time and were quick to inform us of how to safely enjoy all aspects of the boat and the islands we visited. Multiple times we had to take a dingy to the islands, here is were their experiences dealing with guests who are not proficient with getting in and out of a dingy was very evident. Never once did I feel unsafe or nervous. Heather is an amazing chief. Breakfast and lunch was served on the boat and each one was better than the next. Always request her chorizo tacos omg they were good... I can’t imaging not requesting this dynamic, professional and extremely fun team for my next trip... -Kharl

Name: Deb Yacht: RUMBA with John Mikulkac and Heather Monroe Charter Dates: 2020-02-03 16:00 to 2020-02-10 12:00 Area Cruised: Virgin Islands Overall Rating: 5/5 1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Absolutely!! 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Absolutely! 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Absolutely! 4. Was the food good and well presented? Absolutely! It was amazing in taste and presentation! 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Absolutely! 6. Additional comments on your charter? We had an amazing trip with Capt John & Heather! They went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. They even toured us around Anegada in a jeep/truck for the entire day when they could have had the time to themselves! The food was amazing! Who thought you could prepare gourmet meals in a TINY kitchen with no stove! And the portions were perfect. Not too heavy. Best of all, they are both experienced sailors so we had many beautiful sails with them! We were pleasantly surprised at how well they knew the USVI and BVI islands, as they are somewhat new to the area, but you would never know by the knowledge of snorkel spots, restaurants, island history, etc that they shared with us. We would definitely sail again with them!

The trip was great. We loved John and Heather. They were very knowledgeable and fun. We felt very safe in their hands. One of the highlights was getting to sail to St. Croix. They put up the sails and turned off the motor and the wind took over. It was amazing! Buck Island over there was awesome, too. Beautiful water and sand. We had the beach all to ourselves. Really, nothing to complain about besides me ruining my phone and Mark, not my Mark, but the other Mark with us, stepped on a black sea urchin and got all the needles in his foot and toes. We had to call an ambulance. We were at Oppenheimer Beach. They didn’t treat him though. Said they would dissolve on their own, and they did. We snorkeled several times and saw lots of sea turtles and stingrays and got to hold a sea urchin and huge starfish. Lots of yummy food and drinks....I could go on and on. Will post more pics on my Facebook page in a day or two when I have time to go through them all. I’m ready to go back next summer! Thanks again for helping me with this trip!!
