Captain: Shawn (31)

Shawn’s love for the ocean began when he was only a few months old on the coast of North Carolina. Shawn grew up in Carolina Beach, NC where he learned to read the wind and waves and developed a passion to share his love of the ocean with others.

Shawn graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2011 with a degree in Marine Biology. Shortly after college, Shawn moved to Nicaragua to pursue his love of the ocean and worked as a Captain and surf guide for NicaSurf tours.

Following a couple great years in Central America, Shawn moved back to the states to continue his life on the water. In doing so, Shawn has spent the past 5 years working aboard world class super yachts. In which time, he has obtained his USCG Captains License as well as his American Sailing Association Certification.

Shawn and Autumn love to spend time on the water, whether it’s diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddling or sailing. They are excited to bring their captain and crew knowledge of charter yachts to give you a sailing vacation you won’t forget.

Chef-Mate: Autumn (31)

Autumn was born in Michigan where she grew up swimming in the freshwater of the Great Lakes. After high school she studied massage therapy and yoga in Costa Rica where she fell in love with the salty ocean and travelling to new places. In 2013, Autumn moved to Florida to become a yacht stewardess. A job that would take her to many exotic places, even all the way back to lake Michigan.

For the last five years, Autumn has worked on multiple world class yachts in which she collaborated closely with five-star chefs from around the world. Learning from her yacht chef coworkers, she has developed a passion for creating exciting and healthy dishes that create memories.

Shawn and Autumn met in September of 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where they were both searching for their first superyacht jobs. A week later, they found separate jobs on different boats, starting three years of long distance dating. In December of 2016, they decided it was time for an adventure and decided to travel New Zealand for a year together in a campervan they renovated themselves.

Just wanted to send you a short note about our BVI charter. Paul and Kristen were awesome. The trip in itself was great and very worth it but the two of them took it over the top. Please relay our feelings to the boat owners also. I am speaking for all eight of us that went on the charter. We have highly recommended both your company and the boat and crew to our friends.



Guests aboard PELICAN in January, 2017 said:

First of all it was a fantastic trip we enjoyed the week with the boys and girlfriends and the surprise was a hit. Eva and Paul were the perfect fit for us and the boys. We had amazing meals and we did lots of stuff whether it was heading into shore to visit a bar or using the toys on the boat. We told them we would be doing a write up on trip advisor for them as well.

Guests aboard PELICAN in early January, 2017, said:

Missing you guys already. Thanks so much for being such wonderful hosts.

You 2 made our trip with your delicious food and the entertainment/skill of Captain Paul. There was just the right amount of relaxation and activities. The guys and gals tell everyone it was the best trip of their life, and they have all been to Asia, Europe and Mexico, etc.

We really enjoyed our stint at the helm.

Thank you for sharing your love of BVI with the Murphys!

November 2016 guests aboard Pelican said:

Paul and Eva are tremendous. It's not easy to welcome new guests into your life, andthey did it with grace and ease. We see the USVI/BVI trip as one of the most amazing and rewarding trips we take every year. To have trusted crew that have a genuine concern for our well being - in addition to some exceedingly brilliant meals - I'm honored to have their company. And yes, he's a brilliant photographer. And yes, Eva cooks up a storm. Bravo!

We had an amazing vacation aboard the Pelican. The boat is clean, newly renovated and absolutely beautiful sailing along the water. Paul is an amazing captain. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of sailing. We learned a lot and it was so great that he was willing and interested to teach us about sailing and he is a lot of fun! Eva is an amazing chef! I still dream about her incredible meals. From her special cocktails at sunset to her pulled pork that she was making for days, I had some of the best meals of my life. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was absolutely beautiful in presentation and had incredible flavors. She also makes sure that she knows the likes and dislikes of everyone on the boat so that she can ensure that everyone has a great meal every time. This was our second boat vacation and again we loved every minute of our trip!

...For me, I say without hesitation that this was the greatest vacation of all time. It actually felt more like two trips: an exotic adventure crossed with a five star food and wine excursion. 

 ...The Boat – so much larger than expected. The rooms were two to three times larger than the beds. The showers were large even though we chose to use the outdoor showers after exiting the water. We found that the community areas were perfect to hold all nine of us and there were also many places to hide and get some alone time when needed.

...Paul – Paul has this amazing knack of anticipating our needs. When we wanted adventure, he gave us adventure. When we wanted to get off the boat, get off the boat, just hang and relax, he always was one step ahead of us. He was so accommodating and could easily transition between this first class butler/attendant, adventure surfer/guide, DJ, bartender, and all while safely navigating the BVIs! 

 ... Eva - She spoiled us with super creative, beautifully plated dishes. I literally could not wait to see what she prepared next from breakfast to lunch followed by a post activity snack and dinner. ...Every meal had different proteins, varied ethnicities, fresh veggies, and amazing flavors. She constantly surprised and taught me so much about new combinations and techniques. Long story short, Look up the Pelican/EVA/PAUL for some amazing food, adventure, relaxation and safe non sun-burnt fun in the BVI’s. We cannot wait to sail with them again.

Our kids still ask about Paul and Eva. They were amazing teachers about the craft of sailing and all things BVI. Safety came first; they made it fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents. They took all of our (often disparate) plans and wishes into consideration and did so openly and graciously. Christmas 2016 was among the best for us (maybe the single best?) and Paul, Eva and Pelican deserve credit and many thanks for that!
