Captain Jeff Black was born in central California where he grew up spending most of his time in the Sierra Nevada mountains. He discovered his love for sailing in south Florida in his early 20’s and has been on the water ever since.
Jeff has worked as an offshore delivery Skipper for the past 10 years, bringing yachts all over the Atlantic seaboard and the Caribbean. Jeff has happily settled in St. Thomas and is happy to take the helm on Black Pearl.
Chef/First Mate Valarie was raised by the ocean on the western coast of Florida and relocated to St. Thomas five years ago once her children were grown. Her background in the hospitality industry along with her great love of the water made her perfect as the hostess aboard many high-end day sail charters. Her passion for the water extends to sailing, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, kayaking and paddleboarding.
Wanting to further her time on yachts she began freelancing on term charter yachts, where she discovered her true calling. Valarie prepares her meals with love and enthusiasm – from organic and very healthy to southern and comforting – Valerie can cook anything and get “WOW’s” from her guests.
Captain Jeff and Chef Valarie are ready to welcome you aboard and show you the very best sailing vacation under our beautiful sun.

What We Like
Caribbean charter yacht Black Pearl is a beautifully decorated and maintained Lagoon 44 catamaran that features the upper fly bridge, forward bench seating, spacious covered cockpit dining area with wet bar/ fridge and icemaker. This charter catamaran is ideally suited for families with the large master suite taking up the entire starboard side. There is so much room aboard this catamaran – guests have the choice to congregate comfortably together or enjoy relaxed private time alone. Chef Jen is well known for her excellent cuisine and her flair for presentation. She is able to scale her cuisine up or down, be it total gourmet or “down-home” comfort food that the guests prefer.
Hands Down the Trip of a Lifetime
We had an absolutely wonderful time aboard the Black Peal. It was xuch a delight to spend the week with this crew! They were totally equipped and skilled to make our adventure unforgettable! Jeff and Val make an amazing team.
Val was above and beyond. She was always there to make our stay even better. She is culinarily gifted! Both her presentation and execution were always perfection. She had no issues with our diet restrictions which made us very comfortable and happy. She and Jeff were a total delight to spend 8 days with. It could not have been any more amazing.
The Black Pearl is a beautiful well-maintained vessel. The crew kept the boat in the best condition and made sure to tidy up even our quarters daily which was awesome. Our itinerary was absolutely a perfect mix of gorgeous secluded beaches mixed with a bit of local bar party time!! It was the best of all worlds in paradise!
I miss Val and her cooking since the day we left! We can’t wait to come back for another adventure!Hands down, this was the best trip of our lifetime. It felt like a dream to spend our engagement moon in absolute paradise- with such a wonderful crew- aboard a beautiful boat!!!~The Shultzs
I Cannot Recommend Them Highly Enough
The boat was clean, comfortable and decorated in a pirate theme and it was kept clean for the entire charter. There was never anything left out of place. Captain Jeff and Chef Val are fantastic. Perfect for our family. They were knowledgeable and engaged which led to an amazing itinerary and easy camaraderie. If they can pull it off with twin 8 year olds and my wife’s workout requirements they can handle anything. I cannot recommend them highly enough. The best food on the entire trip was aboard the vessel, and we ate a number of expensive dinners ashore. Every meal was excellent. Presentation was picture book. The meals also reflected the requests we made
The best food on the entire trip was aboard the vessel, and we ate a number of expensive dinners ashore. Every meal was excellent. Presentation was picture book. The meals also reflected the requests we made in the preference sheet perfectly with the added wrinkle that my wife and I don’t eat carbs which made Val’s efforts even more complicated. She handled it flawlessly.~The Phillips family
The Crew was Fantastic
We had such a great time during our yacht charter and Jeff and Val were very instrumental in making that happen. Jeff is a great captain and tour guide. We had total confidence in his ability to show us the best the islands have to offer. He would give suggestions on where to go and what to do and his recommendations were spot on. He provided us with a great mix of boating/snorkeling/beach time/sightseeing all of which made for a very balanced, wonderful yacht charter week.
Jeff was patient and funny and flexible and showed a high level of skill in his job which made us all feel very comfortable. Val’s personality, cooking and bartending skills greatly contributed to our week in paradise. The meals were wonderful and the cocktails were tasty. The fact that she served us with a smile at all times was noted and appreciated. Val was pleasant, helpful and professional without being too formal. She is very good at what she does and we enjoyed her company. We would recommend this trip to anyone interested in a Caribbean yacht charter. And we would definitely recommend The Black Pearl as the crew was fantastic.~The Churchills
