MEET THE CREW:

Mike and Julie met soon after high school and have been inseparable ever since. While raising their family, Mike & Julie took family vacations up north which always meant time on the water boating, fishing, skiing, biking and lots of great memories with the family. They also traveled to tropical destinations to escape the cold winter months. When they took a family trip to the Virgin Islands they knew they would be back for good at some point. They bought a sailboat in Florida after their family was raised, spent time there and made the jump to come back to the islands after selling their home and everything they owned in 2019. They have run successful charters in the Virgin Islands ever since.

Mike grew up in the land of 10,000 lakes and took full advantage of as many opportunities as he could to hit the lakes.
As a boy and young man he spent many summers up north at the family cabin taking advantage of all water sports. It’s here that Mike developed his love of being on the water. Mike has been an entrepreneur most of his life and has, along with Julie run a personal training business, owned a fitness center and worked in the oil fields. In his free time, Mike enjoys working out, reading and ‘wrenching’ on things. Mike looks forward to showing his guests a great time and all the amazing experiences the islands have to offer.

Julie was born in Minnesota and moved to California as a young girl. It was then that Julie fell in love with the ocean and the peace and serenity it brought her.
Julie’s love of cooking and food started at a young age as her mother was a wonderful cook and teacher and had Julie in the kitchen with her. Because of her early start, Julie worked in the service industry in many different fields after moving back to Minnesota. Julie loves to cook a wide range of foods but her favorites are comfort style, using fresh local ingredients. Julie’s hobbies are crocheting, cooking, working out with Mike and people watching :).
Julie looks forward to having you and your family join them for an unforgettable experience.

They hope to help others create lasting lifetime memories in their dream destination.

Hero’s Journey:
“The common template of stories that involve a hero who goes on an adventure, is victorious in a decisive crisis and comes home changed or transformed.”

Not all heroes wear capes – some wear tank tops, flip flops, wetsuits and fins.

What people are saying

Thank you both for hosting such a wonderful trip for our family. Hero's Journey is a beautiful boat. The primary cabin is huge and was such a treat for my wife and I. There was plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy meals, play cards, read and take in the spectacular views. The food was delicious and the service was flawless. We are grateful for all the spot on activity recommendations. This was our first charter experience and we can't wait to come back and do it again!

The scenery was breathtaking, around every corner and curve was another adventure. And while the peer fellowship was fantastic, one of the most consistently fabulous aspects about our trip was the meals. Julie did an absolutely outstanding job in meal variety and preparation. I went on this trip thinking I may actually push back and saw it as an opportunity to maybe even lose a little weight… what I found was myself looking for and wanting seconds, sometimes thirds every time we sat down at the table. Julie had pre-planned a week’s breakfasts and dinners. She prepared a variety of dishes that allowed me to try some foods I may not usually consider. She always served us timely, warm meals and adjusted easily to our slightly adventurous irregular schedule. Her selections looked fantastic, they were delicious; the aroma drew you in and she was prepared with sides and all the trimmings that enhanced the experience even more. It was such a wonderful way to begin and end our days. On a 1 to 10 scale I’d give Julie a 15+!! I highly recommend you letting her guide your culinary adventures, just sit back, relax and prepare to be delighted.

Thank you for a great week and for making my 40th birthday so special. We've always wanted to do this and for a while there we didn't think it would happen thanks to COVID. This was our highlight of the entire year! Julie's food is amazing. You should publish your recipes. We are definitely hooked on sailing now and hope to come back soon. The next time with our Kiddos though! Thank you again for great memories, hospitality, and one amazing vacation.

We have recently returned from our awesome vacation on board with Mike and Julie. We expected it to be exceptional but were overjoyed as it was even better. Besides the gorgeous weather, warm sun and even warmer water, the first class treatment was a perfect topper.
Captain Mike tailored the itinerary to our daily preferences including snorkeling , island excursions , virgin beach swimming and sometimes simply hanging out onboard with a cold cocktail and good music.
Boat toys were great especially the floating mat which can provide hours of silly entertainment.
And the Meals.......WOW. Julie is an exceptional cheff. I am a food guy and Julie did not disappoint.
Breakfasts were amazing with Julie always combining fruit and fresh ingredients tailored to each guest’s portions. Lunches and dinners were spectacular with pastas, local seafood, steaks, ....etc. Resort style dinning on a boat. Need I say anymore.

Their knowledge of the area was very comforting and made our trip effortless.

I would highly recommend having a team like Mike and Julie to make a Virgin Island Catamaran tour complete and successful.
