The Crew

Captain Zander
During his childhood, Zander spent summers exploring all parts of Washington including the beautiful San Juan Islands and the Cascade mountains. He also heavily enjoyed sports like soccer and snowboarding when the colder weather settled in. He grew up with a family that had adventuring in their blood, from SCUBA divers and sailors to backpackers and explorers on both sides. When it’s time to relax, Zander’s favorite games included chess and billiards, which he still always loves to bring around for a friendly challenge.

Zander graduated with a degree in marine ecology and studied coral conservation in Thailand which he is still passionate about today. While in education he was a whale watching guide where he discovered the beauty of working with people on the water and sharing his love for the ocean. However, after sailing across the Pacific Ocean he realized that life aboard a sailboat is the best life for him and trained as a professional yacht captain.

With Zander’s diverse range of knowledge and experience he is very comfortable on any vessel he is skippering and his love for the ocean allows him to bring a relaxed and joyful experience to all his guests.

Chef Amanda
Chef Amanda’s passion for cooking and travel has taken her all over the world gaining a diverse set of skills. Her favorite place she worked as a chef was in the mountains of Ecuador where she was free to create and experiment with new dishes. Following this, whilst going to school for Studio Art she eventually landed in Hawaii where she was able to cook and apprentice under Master Chef Phillipe Chin.

Amanda’s love for the underwater world also let her explore new skill sets which led her to becoming a professional underwater videographer for Manta Rays and Dolphins. Love of the Hawaii islands and culture kept her there for 10 years and she now calls Lahaina, Maui her home. She has worked as a whale watching guide, marine naturalist, a diver for a semi-sub, a cook, a hostess and a boat captain.

Her dedication and hard work first allowed her to become first mate on a voyage to Tahiti, Palmyra Atol, New Zealand and various places around the Caribbean. Through her travels she has been able to learn various local delicacies that she loves incorporating into her cooking. Her drive and dedication has given her valuable experiences and knowledge which only travel and time at sea can provide.

Amanda spends much of her spare time in the water; snorkeling, freediving, and spearfishing. She enjoys BBQ’ing on the beach with friends, jumping off waterfalls, a good book in a hammock and playing chess. Fortunately, she has been able to blend her love for sailing, cooking, videography, free diving and marine education.

Amanda has worked as first mate and chef on various charter vessels from 40 – 60ft over the past 10 years and more recently together with Zander. Her cooking and menus have developed during her travels and vegetarian, tapas, vegan and gluten free requests can be easily accommodated. She enjoys creating healthy fresh meals with locally sourced ingredients and combines cooking with excellent customer service and a good knowledge of bar tending. Most importantly, Amanda’s diving and fishing skills mean there will be fresh fish on the menu!

Zander and Amanda have worked on crewed charter vessels together since they met. Arriving in the Grenadines in September 2022, they have over 3,000 nautical miles together operating crewed charters and are fulfilling their common dream to create unique experiences together in the Grenadines for their charter guests. Amanda has a warm personality, responsible nature, and excellent sense of judgement. This is matched with strong water skills and an eclectic knowledge of the culinary arts. Zander was born into a family of sailors and explorers and was sailing before he can talk. He has an calm and attentive personality with a wide range of knowledge about sailing and the marine environment. They look forward to welcoming you onboard NeuroSeas to experience the real Grenadines, the sailing, the marine life and the true caribbean culture.
