Captain Gavin Van Der Berg
Gavin grew up on the coast of Kwa Zulu Natal in South Africa
The ocean has always been an integral part of his life, even as a young boy. Free diving is his greatest passion as well as surfing and most water sports under the sun. Gavin’s parents, also very keen sailors, were his motivation and inspiration to get into the yachting industry. Having been around boats since the age of five, the boating world became his natural choice of career, where he went on to acquire the qualifications to become a certified sailing instructor. Another future goal in mind is that he is determined to fulfill his ultimate dream; to one day sail around the world. Gavin holds an RYA/MCA Yacht Master Ocean Qualification as well as a Chef City & Guilds Certificate in Catering. Some of his current sailing accomplishments are, across the North and South Atlantic, circumnavigated the Baltic Sea, two seasons in the Caribbean, two seasons in the United Kingdom and France and up the East Coast of Africa, Durban to Kenya as well as stops in Madagascar. Gavin also attended chef school as he has a keen interest in food. Fishing and diving are some of his passionate other hobbies. Gavin looks forward to showing you and your guests the thrilling beauty of the BVI, making your dream Caribbean vacation experience and memories one in a lifetime ...
