530 Royal Cape Crew

Captain Jim Kozar is a USCG licensed master captain, PADI certified rescue diver, former fine dining General Manager and a heck of a nice guy. Growing up in southern California’s surf culture, he has lived all over the world- from New Zealand to Newport and understands the art of travel like few do. His first long-term yacht crew position was on an 85 foot ketch, sailing from California to Rhode Island via the Panama Canal. He gained extensive knowledge of the Caribbean by delivering and wintering sailboats from Florida all the way down-island to Grenada and points in between. After running Chart House restaurants for years including the St. Croix, St. Thomas and Puerto Rico locations, he settled in St. Thomas as General Manager and bought his first boat, Jester. His Virgin Islands restaurant career also included a stint as the food and beverage director at the famous Bitter End Yacht Club in Virgin Gorda. He parleyed his knack for entertaining and cooking, and 35 plus years of sailing experience into a very successful daysail business that he has run for the last 15 years, currently sailing out of Secret Harbour Beach Resort. Through his sailing connections and community, he found himself the captain of Twilight Rodeo doing term charters for both the Jester and Twilight Rodeo.

We had a fantastic time. Holli and Jim were just unbelievable! I have never chartered a boat before, so really didn’t know what to expect with a crewed boat. Holli and Jim set the bar pretty high.
The Wards

One of the best parts of the trip was the incredible food!!! So fresh and healthy while still being yummy! And so much of it! We really couldn’t believe the great meals and the variety that came out of that small kitchen! Very impressive!

We had one in our party that has serious food allergies and they really worked around those very successfully. It was very much appreciated!We really enjoyed Jared and Savannah…great personalities and a lot of fun to hang out with. It was a fantastic trip and we will book again.

Annie and Kris

Thanks for an amazing week touring the virgin islands. Your attentiveness and thoughtfulness made it truly special from the amazing food to the perfect destination spots. We’re already brainstorming our next trip with you!

Kim and Phil

You provided us with the most awesome vacation we’ve ever experienced. We have lived here for 17 years, but you still took us to new places and showed us new sites all while working so hard to make it look so easy. The way you work together assured our total relaxation. Thank you!

Lawson King

I wanted to write and say what a wonderful trip we took in mid-October. The crew spent time giving us our own personal tour and allowed us space to explore as we wanted. This was everyone’s first visit to VI and BVI in which it exceeded our expectations.The chef’s cooking was excellent and very flexible to one of our party guest who was experiencing some medical issues. All of the requested items from drinks to food expectations were on point.

The Captain put us in the prime spots to see the islands, bars and beaches along with providing excellent boatmanship and safety while we were aboard. Their experience and knowledge of the local customs, safety and islands allowed for us to relax and enjoy this beautiful place. Thanks again for a perfect 5 days and we will definitely see y’all again.

The Cohoes

What a way to spend a week! This was by far the best vacation we ever experienced and exceeded all expectations. Thank you for taking such good care of us, keeping us safe, preparing us such delicious meals and showing us all the BVI’s have to offer. We will never forget this week. A true escape from reality.

The Stone Family

We wanted to thank you both so much again for your generosity and flexibility in accommodating our trip over Thanksgiving We honestly had the time of our lives! Every day was such an amazing adventure. The crew were so wonderful.

They shared stories, made us laugh, and made amazing meals (which my boys are still talking about). The memories made over our vacation will stay with us forever, and I really want you to know how much it meant to us. We hope to somehow make this trip again, and have already given your information to friends that are interested in the same.
