Certifications: PADI Divemaster Certificate.
Nationality: British
Languages Spoken: English

Fiona hails from Oxford, UK and grew up in a small country village next door to a farm. She has a degree in television production, but has worked in the hospitality industry since she was 14. Following a few years in event management in London, she moved to Australia and fell in love with the sea. She spent two years working on a dive boat in the Great Barrier Reef before moving to the yacht industry, and started her career on superyachts in the Mediterranean and the Bahamas.

Education/Certifications: BSc Marine Sciences; 200T Captain’s License, GMDSS, Marine Engineering Certification, PADI Dive Instructor.
Nationality: British
Languages Spoken: English, conversational Spanish

Born and raised in Plymouth, England, Paul Nelson grew up in the city but loved to hike the great outdoors. Prior to embarking on a yachting career in 2012, Paul spent more than a decade as a dive instructor on both small and large vessels. He also spent six months sailing liveaboards, delivered a yacht across the Pacific, and worked as a white boat captain for a luxury island resort in the Bahamas. When not at sea, Paul enjoys hiking, rock climbing and solo travel. His favorite place to be in the world is under water, where you’ll find him cave diving or teaching others how to scuba dive.

Chef - Florinda Baptiste
Education/Certifications: Bachelors of Science in Culinary Arts Management & Food Science, Johnson & Wales University, Providence, Rhode Island
Languages Spoken: English

Chef Florinda Baptiste was born in the city of New Providence, Bahamas, and lived a few blocks from the beaches and docks. As a child, she loved reading and arts & crafts.

Flo graduated from Johnson & Wales University and embarked on a culinary career that included posts as Executive Sous Chef at Luciano’s of Chicago and the British Colonial Hilton in Nassau, Bahamas. Her introduction to the world of yachting was in 2009 when a captain was seeking a chef for a two-week assignment. The trip was a success and sparked a new career path. Since then, she has worked on M/Y Adventurer out of Port Aransas, Texas and M/Y Temptation out of Charlotte, North Carolina. Although the Bahamas remains her favorite place in the world, she adores traveling to new destinations and sampling cuisine from other cultures. Food is not just her job, it is her true passion.

My family had an amazing day out on the water. I can not say enough positive things about the crew. All went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and happy! This was my first charter but certainly won’t be the last.
December 2019
Fantastic boat and crew. We were very pleased, thank you again for finding this boat for us.
March 6, 2020
We had a great time. The boat was quite nice, but our experience has always been that the crew makes the trip. These guys were awesome . . . Fi and Paul spent a lot of time chatting with the girls, FC was always around and made everyone comfortable (which is great for a Captain), and Flo made a birthday cake on the boat . . . which was completely consumed. We would highly recommend them to anyone.
March 15, 2020
Dear FC, Fiona, Paul and Flo, It is sad to be writing in this because it means we have to leave. It was such a great pleasure to be on board with you this past week! You made us feel welcomed and at home the whole time :) Thanks for the amazing adventures – diving, swimming with turtles, jet ski and snorkeling for shells. What a week! We will stay in touch and hope to be again soon!
June 23, 2020
Today was so much fun! The weather was perfect and everyone was so nice! We are sad to leave but so glad we were able to spend the entire day on the water and out on the jet skiis!! We had a blast and cannot wait to return to get Scuba certified. We loved the crew! We saw so many fish and we were glad to feed them for the first time in 3 months! Cannot wait to return. Thank you for all of your hard work. Thank you!

Dearest Crew of Equinox WOW! It’s difficult to put words together to describe how wonderful of a time we all had with you this week. Thank you so much for making all of our birthdays so special! Fi, where do we start? Your beautiful smile and cheery personality was a delight to be around. From the table decorations to the party decorations everything was perfect. Taking Jenny shell hunting may have been her highlight of the trip. Paul, like your personality, unnecessary words don’t need to be said. You are an incredible guide and your knowledge of the water are superb. Thank you for capturing all the wonderful memories for us. You did a fantastic job making sure we were always taken care of. Flo, It was awesome seeing you again and once again you totally outdid yourself. Every meal was better than the last. Best food we have ever had, you are a true artist and an absolute gem! We cannot wait to see you again, soon!! And FC, WOW You are an incredible captain! You made us feel like we owned motor yacht Equinox from the wonderful conversation to your great piloting skills we can’t wait to be on board again soon. Thank you for helping us forget about COVID.
