Captain: John "Whitey" White

Max and Whitey (Maxine and John White) have a long history in the charter industry. Whitey is originally from Perth, Australia and Max from Utah but they have made ‘the Caribbean’ their home. After arriving on their cruising boat in 1992 to get married at Cane Garden Bay, they began their chartering career. They have hosted guests on large catamarans in the Virgin Islands, down the island chain and even a few years of ‘adventure chartering’ in the San Blas Islands of Panama and in Belize. The most recent years have been on a private yacht exploring the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and Belize. They are excited to now be returning to the beautiful British Virgin Islands where chartering began for them.

Captain Whitey takes the helm as he sails you around the islands. He knows all of the anchorages intimately and will customize the itinerary to the guest preferences. He is known as the entertainer and his primary goal is to make sure his guests on Nutmeg have the best vacation in their life. He holds a RYA Yacht Master Ocean license and has been a PADI Dive Instructor for 24 years. Whitey has a passion for teaching, whether it be snorkeling or scuba diving, or introducing people to anything regarding life on a boat. At night you can expect more entertainment with interesting ‘Whitey stories’ of his many travels while being served his original and classic beverages from the bar.

Chef & Mate: Maxine White

Chef Maxine White

Originally from the land-locked state of Utah, Maxine had never been sailing until she met Whitey in San Francisco. She quickly took to it and before long she quit her job in the San Francisco Financial District to sail away under the Golden Gate Bridge with Whitey. Many sea miles later they were married at Cane Garden Bay, Tortola. Max has since completed over 45,000 blue water miles.

First Mate and Chef Max brings her years of extensive traveling to inspire her meal preparation on Nutmeg. Max likes to use local and fresh ingredients and her primary culinary specialties are Latin and Caribbean as well as Asian and Mediterranean cuisines. In past charter boat shows, she has won awards with her Tamarind Duck! Max is also an avid diver as a PADI Dive Master for over 20 years. She especially likes to show her guests the underwater world and knows the best of the snorkel spots in the BVIs.

While sailing on a Nutmeg charter you can expect to have a specialized and relaxing sailing vacation!

A family aboard catamaran NUTMEG for New Years 2020-2021 said:

Bottom line: I would not hesitate to recommend Nutmeg or its crew to others.

Max and Whitey are very easy to be with, and were great with the children. We all enjoyed their company, and they made us feel at home on Nutmeg. The food was fantastic and varied. There were not many instances in which someone did not fully clean their plate. Max made special effort with the food for New Year’s Eve, with lobster for lunch and steak for dinner. She also accommodated our youngest child with her preferred chicken when seafood (not preferred by her) was served. We ate very, very well.

As you know, the crew agreed to take the “drop down” forward cabin, leaving the four main cabins in the rear for our family of five. I did not previously appreciate what a significant difference this would make. It made the boat feel larger for us than it otherwise would have felt and provided some privacy that we may not have had otherwise. Their willingness to accommodate guests in that way really makes a significant positive difference in the experience.

Thanks for setting us up with the Nutmeg and its crew. We had a great trip.

Max and Whitey:  THANK YOU again for such a wonderful trip. Your skill, experience, creativity, passion, personal chemistry – and the fact that you’re just great human beings, all made this a unique, memorable and superbly enjoyable experience for Melanie & I. I think I can safely vouch that Pete & Vera’s experience was the same.

Catamaran NUTMEG's guests in the Grenadines for early August said:
We had a wonderful time with Max an Whitey. Everything was beyond our expectations, the catamaran was beautiful and spacious and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect holiday!!! Max and Whitey were absolutely wonderful: Whitey full of energy and with a great Aussie sense of humor and Max, the quiet force accompanying him, she made every meal truly wonderful: the food was delicious, varied and healthy!!! We were truly pampered (even our beds were made when we weren’t watching!!!), and we really appreciated their huge amount of experience both with sailing and in life. We miss them already!!! If we ever decide to sail again in the Caribbean we would choose them again, without hesitation!!!! Thank you for everything!!!

It was possibly our best vacation! Certainly it ranked right up there. Whitey and Max are really a special crew, really great people with whom we all bonded very quickly. They go out of their way to make everyone feel at home in their home. We all loved it and thank you so much for gently nudging me to choose them.
