Owner description: Captain Cook offers exclusive private sailing trips with a culinary touch. Come and sail with us and enjoy the feeling of having a private yacht with your own personal crew. Both Captain Adriaan and Cook Sandra have over more than 30 years of sailing experience, as well in Europe as the Caribbean. Their passion for sailing, preparing nice dinners, and the love for exploring strange coasts made them start their own business 'Captain Cook'.. The name not only refers to the two owners, as well as Captain James Cook, the famous 18th century explorer and cartographist. He inspires them to seek for the unknown, but then in a 21th century setting on a luxurious modern yacht.

My husband and I booked simmertime for our day in port on a cruise for a relaxing day trip and we got just that!
We took a taxi right from the port to the boat. We had a little trouble with the taxi not sure where to drop us but eventually he figured it out. We spent 58€ round trip on taxis which was unexpected.
Adriaan and Sandra did a great job making us feel welcome and pampered on the sailboat. The amazing food that Sandra made for us will never be forgotten! And Adriaan's attention to detail made it a perfect day!
While on the boat we got to swim in 2 different spots and also received a sailing lesson.
We thank you both for your hospitality and genuine love you have for the sea!

I can't thank Sandra and Adriaan enough for such a nice relaxed trip out on Simmertime. Our group of 9 were made to feel really welcome as we sailed to some nice spots to swim in the sea and take in the great views. The food prepared by Sandra was delicious. Thank you very much!!!

Sandra and Adriaan are more than just a great captain and fantastic cook, it’s like you’re out for a day with old friends. They make you feel so welcome and Sandra spoiled us with her amazing cooking. What a great way to spend a day out on the water!

My husband and I had a wonderful day with Adriaan and Sandra! Sandra prepared a honeymoon cake for us which was a sweet surprise. The day started with glasses of champagne, and we sailed out to a quiet bay for lunch. Sailing was lots of fun, and Andriaan was very patient explaining to us the techniques. More importantly, he has a good taste of music ;) Sail away is now one of my favorite songs! My favorite part of the day is the lunch. Sandra is the best cooker on the island, you have to try the salad, prawns, mussels, chicken wings and so on so on!

Lots of thanks to Captain Cook who made our honeymoon a memorable one :). Keep in touch!
