When it's time to play in the water, you have many choices. You can paddleboard on one of our two boards (the longer one accommodates two people), lounge on our tube, floats and noodles, or paddle our 3-person kayak. Snorkeling is a favorite activity in the Bahamas – we have snorkels, masks, adjustable fins and vests available for your use. You may also head to the beach to sun, stroll and swim.
Captain David was born and raised in Durban, South Africa, where he was introduced to sailing before emigrating to the US in his teens. He has taught numerous troops of scouts sailing, the ways of the sea and life aboard a ship. He is also an abstract expressionist artist whose vibrant, joyful work (www.davidmilton.com) has been featured in galleries across the Caribbean and U.S. (He painted Ubuntu’s colorful mast and other elements.) His calm, relaxed disposition will help you feel at home during your time aboard.
First Mate Lori dreamt of cruising since taking a sailing trip to the Bahamas in her teens. She’s the reason her family bought Ubuntu and took to sea. Nomadic by nature, she has lived in Iceland, France, and across the U.S. Her graphic design and editing company travels with her. An avid learner, she speaks several languages and brings a passion for learning on board – from sea creatures’ traits to environmental awareness to cuisine. Her easygoing enthusiasm is directed toward making your charter unforgettable.
Scrumptious healthy food has always been an important part of David’s and Lori’s lives. They both love creating international culinary dishes, and use the freshest local ingredients available to delight the palate. They happily accommodate special dietary requests in creative ways.
- We had such a great time aboard Ubuntu! We found her very comfortable both at sea and at anchor, and her shallow draft allowed us to explore wonderful coves and bays. Additionally, we enjoyed beautiful, healthy meals and the best crew in the Carribean! We look forward to another stay with you. ~ Francis
