You’ll love the salon with its exceptionally spacious layout. There’s both indoor and outdoor dining, depending on your preference.
Guests adore our HUGE nets in the forward bow for lounging about and enjoying the sea spray. The stern provides a fully equipped dive deck / swim platform, also great space for yoga or sunbathing.
Meet the Crew
Captain Chris Brizzolara & Chef/first mate Nikki Assalone
Some people are just meant to live on or by the sea. There is an inner yearning that draws them there and that’s just how this partnership came together. Both grew up in the north east of the US and committed themselves to “responsible” careers for much of their early adult lives. Eventually, each answered the calling of the tropics with a decision to move to the Virgin Islands. There they finally met, joined forces, and decided to pledge the their lives to exploring the Caribbean, and sharing their happiness and zest-for-life with travelers from around the world.
Captain Chris has spent the last 10 years living and working in the US and British Islands, on and off boats. He has chosen endeavors that impact the health and sustainability of our environment – installing alternate power sources in the Virgin Islands where resources are especially precious; and co-founding the Caribbean Lionfish Safari group in an effort to protect the reef from invasive species. His love and connection to the Islands comes though on every charter; guests know they are experiencing something very special aboard QUEST.
Nikki was a revered nutritionist, yoga instructor and wellness coach prior to joining QUEST. Her passion for cooking combined with her nutrition background brings about a range of cuisine from sinful to heavenly. As the Chef aboard QUEST, Nikki designs charter specific menus that will make your mouth water. She believes great meals come from exceptional ingredients, time honored techniques, and experimentation with the freshest local foods and seasonal fare. Raised in a very Italian, food-loving family, Nikki’s most cherished memories are of sharing time with loved ones around the dinner table. She brings that same warmth and camaraderie to every meal.
An avid scuba diver and Padi Divemaster with 1000’s of dives under her belt, Nikki began falling in love with boating while playing and eventually working on live-aboard dive vessels in Thailand. Her dive addiction took her around the globe where’s she’s collected experience in world class diving from the frigid Pacific Northwest BC to the balmy waters of Borneo.
You’ll experience both Chris & Nikki’s love and respect for the ocean whether they are sailing you from island to island, serving up delicious food and drinks, or guiding you in a dive or snorkel for a peek at the wonderland below the surface. Their passion for the Caribbean lifestyle is so contagious; you wont ever want to leave.
