Capt. Glen Hurd

A sea gypsy with a wanderlust soul, Captain Glen is a Canadian born, American expat that has been based out of the Virgin Islands for 20 years, and calls his world voyaging sailing yacht home. Glen lives to travel, exploring the world and diverse cultures, thriving on good vibes and positive energy. Nurturing his lifelong love of the water, his sailing adventures include the entire Caribbean Sea, Central & South America, Panama Canal, South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Southeast Asia, Indian Ocean, Red Sea, Suez Canal, and Mediterranean. Having had thousands of salty nautical miles slip under his keel, Captain Glen makes it a priority to custom-tailor your adventure to your specific needs and desires, ensuring this is your trip of a lifetime!

Raised in Oakville, Ontario, but never adjusting to the freezing temperatures of his homeland, Glen immigrated to the United States at the age of 20, and continued progressing to the little latitudes through a highly successful career as a professional hotelier. Along the journey, Glen has successfully managed various luxury boutique resorts throughout the Caribbean, including the islands of Vieques, Puerto Rico, Virgin Gorda, Bermuda, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Dominica, and Nevis.

Throughout his epic adventures, Glen’s heart has remained in the Virgins - home to the finest sailing in the World! - where he has returned to share his love of sailing and passion for the sea with you. Glen has an extensive and intimate knowledge of the waters, people, and places of the entire Caribbean, especially the Virgin Islands (U.S., British, & Spanish). His familiarity includes all the anchorages, snorkel and dive sites, land and sea highlights, hiking locations, and beach bars to share with you. He has been fortunate to develop countless friendships and acquaintances, with locals and expats alike, throughout the VI and Caribbean.

Chef / First Mate Alex Hurd

Born upon the edge of the Baltic Sea, along the beautiful coastal beaches of Poland, Alex, grew up in a small seaside town, where her love of the sea began. Alex considers herself lucky to have been raised in a home where the allure of the ocean was ever present, and with parents who taught her a respect of the water, an appreciation of new opportunities, a love for travel, and an appetite for culturally rich food. Passions that have determined her life!

Fortunate to develop her passions into her work, Alex was employed with a Tourism and Event Coordination Agency. Organizing tours all around the world, and showing people the beauty it has to offer, the biggest reward was witnessing her guests enjoying their time and getting hooked on travel! Worldwide adventures have taught Alex that local communities best demonstrate their culture through cuisine, by tasting the food, and simply having a great time! Extensive travel, along with living on a yacht, has taught Alex the importance of fresh ingredients, creativity in the galley, and has inspired her delicious and unforgettable meals. Alex is very happy to share all of that with you!

Presented an opportunity not to be missed, Alex realized her greatest dream come true, and biggest challenge of her life, embarking on an epic sailing adventure to the far side of the world. Upon partnering with Captain Glen, Alex came to discover a life to suit her style. Ot once, feeling natural and right at home, settling into the fulfillment of a happy life, living in paradise down in the islands. The ultimate expression and appreciation of this is experienced in the Virgin Islands, where Alex takes great delight in sharing wonderful meals, island adventures, great conversation and laughs, delicious cocktails, and beautiful sunsets with her guests!

Stewardess Lyndsay Tubbs

Lyndsay Tubbs grew up as a small town farm girl in Central Minnesota. Her natural spirit to grow bigger brought her to the Twin Cities to complete a degree in Business Marketing.  Seeking the warmth of an environment that suited her best, she left the Midwest for a new life in the sun and sandy beaches of Florida. Tampa Bay is where she settled into home for the next 10 years, working at an alternative newspaper in outsides sales in order to learn the heart of the cities and meet the friendly pirate people of St.Petersburg and Tampa.  With a love of movement and outdoor activities, she was motivated to become a Certified Personal Trainer and complete a Stand Up Paddle course for instructors, so she could share her love of health and outdoor happiness.  Utilizing her training skills and knowledge of the local area, Lyndsay ran outdoor fitness retreats in St. Petersburg, FL, training clients on the beach and in the local parks.  Often their retreat days included a stop at the local farmers market, where she could share her knowledge of wholistic nutrition and food. As a compliment to her love of service and new cuisine, she worked in hospitality at a destination hotel, The Don Cesar, where she was happy to meet people traveling from all over the world.

Seeking a change and adventure after a hurricane that adversely affected the Gulf Coast, a call from friends in the yachting industry sparked her interest to move to the East Coast of Florida and learn about boats and a life at sea.  They promised her combined skills of fitness and a long history in hospitality would shine in the yachting industry, and the transition was successfully made.  While working on boats, she was able to simultaneously grow her wellness career by gaining her certification in yoga instruction through a travel yoga company that shared her belief in living your best life through movement, travel, good food, and an inspired heart.

Her professional yachting experiences in particular, have stimulated her passion to connect, grow and explore the world and people around her.  She has a desire to alchemize happiness in every aspect of life, utilizing her role as stewardess and wellness expert as her palette for creation. An outdoor girl at heart, Lyndsay loves hiking, outdoor adventures, camping, fishing, travel and treasure hunting for all the unique finds that wash up on the shores of the islands.

A six year resident of the Virgin Islands, Neen, is now Chef and First Mate aboard her beautiful home, S/V Valhalla. As a Midwest Ohio native and lifelong traveler, she enjoys creating a wide and exciting array of dishes for your enjoyment. Her creations and methodology have been influenced by cuisines of Lebanon, Japan, Italy, Korea, Denmark, Austria, France, the Philippines, the American South, Southwest, and Midwest and of course, her current home, the Caribbean Islands.

In addition to traveling and experimenting with food, Neen dedicated much of her life to the study of fine art. Upon moving to the Caribbean, she found an intense love for life on the water, and so, transitioned her work from paper to plate. “In the past I created art you simply looked at, now I create art you smell, touch, see, taste, devour and even sometimes hear..” One of the most rewarding elements of life on the water for Neen is life IN THE WATER! As a certified Dive Master and avid snorkeler, she will be your guide in the breathtaking underwater world of the Virgin Islands. You may even be lucky enough to snare a lobster for lunch! If not, try your hand at catching a Mahi Mahi, Tuna or Wahoo to be enjoyed as ceviche, tartare, tacos... the options are limitless with Chef and First Mate Neen.
