The Life CruiseNautic.

Nomo FOMO.

We came to this world of sea crossing water folk in search of the next big adventure. We quit life as we knew it and bought a factory-fresh, Lagoon 42. We sailed her out of La Rochelle, France without trial and a crew we had only chatted with online. We explored France, Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands then hopped the big pond to our current home seas of the Caribbean. Our “backyard view” is in constant rotation as well as our adventures.

Through it all we have gained great knowledge on what originally felt like a great mystery. How do you break free from the norm and live your dreams, your grand adventure? While we have not spotted the illusive Jaguar Shark just yet, we have experienced a whole new life with daily adventure.

What is your grand adventure? We want to help you go for the gold. We offer customized onboard experiences as well as planning and advice for others seeking to break free from the daily grind to live their dreams. Send us a line and let’s chat on your dreams. In the meantime be sure to follow our sailing adventures as we sail out of the ordinary.

Friendships that span the globe and a revolving ba Friendships that span the globe and a revolving backyard view, who could ask for more?

The last couple years have been filled with grand adventure. We sailed out of France on our factory fresh #Lagoon42 in fall of 2018 to cross the big pond and settled into a new life afloat in the Caribbean. 
For all the magnificent beauty that surrounds us, life is not always perfect. There have been moments of fear, moments we have longed for basic land based conveniences and even tears missing the comforts of family and friends.

Then you find yourself in paradise and those moments are outweighed with the good...a magical night dive, meditating in the sound of the surf, watching the joyful eyes of someone experiencing it all for the first time and setting sail toward infinite horizons. You discover you are now part of “the club”, uplifted by water folk who understand the ebb and flow of this life. You are solidified in the truth that magic is found in sharing the journey.

Somewhere out there, someone else is dreaming of taking this leap. If we can help even just one person, we will do it with complete transparency. Take a sail with us, we will share our stories. When you are ready to take the leap, you too will already have friends on the water. Give it a try, it is worth every moment. #Sailoutoftheordinary #Thelifecruisenautic

Crew Reviews

CruiseNautic is a Trip of a Lifetime!
If our family could give Kate and Cyrus (your CruiseNautic crew) a 6 out of 5 we would! Our family of 6 spent an incredible week with Kate and Cyrus and their puppy Coco over winter break cruising the BVIs.

Their Boat. It's an absolutely gorgeous brand new 42 foot catamaran with plenty of places to relax, soak up the sun, read a book and enjoy mealtime with the family.

The Food. Amazing! Kate and Cyrus provide 3 creative and delicious meals a day including Cyrus's special baked goods (breads, cookies, pies, muffins and more!).

The Service. Kate and Cyrus are so incredibly accommodating and never stopped asking if we needed or wanted anything. They make the Fours Seasons staff seem almost average.

The Trip. It was all expertly planned out and we felt so at ease with how professional and safe Kate and Cyrus are with the boat. They took us to such great spots where we could use the paddle boards, kayak and snorkel gear right from the boat.

If you've ever considered doing this type of trip, reach out to CruiseNautic, you won't be regret it.

Brian U. | Trip Advisor ReviewNorthbrook, Illinois

Snorkeling, swimming and great food!
If you enjoy boating and water activities you should consider chartering a custom cruise with Kate and Cyrus @ CruiseNautic.com. They designed an itinerary specific to our group's interests and abilities. We relaxed as we sailed to tropical islands, swam snorkeled and kayaked in crystal clear aquamarine waters and visited unique island destinations.
Their catamaran was a beautiful new vessel with comfortable living spaces skillfully sailed by its owners.
Kate and Cyrus were wonderful hosts catering to our every need. Kate was constantly chopping fresh ingredients to make each meal an event. Cyrus wowed us nightly with his desserts.
We highly recommend chartering with CruiseNautic. It will be a vacation you will never forget!

Lorraine P. | Trip Advisor & Facebook ReviewHarrisville, Rhode Island

Sailing with Kate and Cyrus was an incredibly memorable experience. Every night we enjoyed another bay to snorkel- kayak and enjoy an wonderful sunset, eating wholesome, freshly made delicious dinners.
Everything was fabulous and therefore there are no complaints.
You do want to be comfortable on the water, during our day excursions we had fun but at times we bounced around.
Would I do this again - absolutely- would I recommend to friends- I have many times already. We will defiantly catch up with Kate and Cyrus in a different location.

Rhonda K | Trip Advisor ReviewOakville, Ontario

If you plan on sailing the British Virgin Islands and you DO NOT sail then CruiseNautic is the absolute best way to go!! Kate, Cyrus and their cutie dog Cocoa are a fabulous trio!!! They provided a fun, relaxing and safe itinerary for the 6 of us. My husband and I along with our 4 kids (17,17,15,14 yrs) had the most magnificent vacation. They were able to tailor the trip to our needs by providing a variety of activities (snorkeling, tubing, SUPing, kayaking, movie night and so much more). Both Kate and Cyrus are captains and chefs...there was never a lack of drinks nor food that’s for sure!! Wow can they cook!!!! This vacation has surpassed our expectations and we can’t wait to sail with CruiseNautic again!!!! I believe I forgot to mention they have a brand new luxurious catamaran!!! Extremely comfortable accommodations!!! We miss them already!! Definitely doing this again. ❤️

Melissa U. | Facebook ReviewNorthbrook, Illinois

Thanks again Kate and Cyrus for an amazing week cruising in the BVI we’ll never forget. Can’t recommend highly enough for families looking for a luxury holiday ‘out of the ordinary’. From jumping off the Willy T to swimming with turtles, every day was an adventure! Hopefully we’ll get to return soon.

Mike R. | Facebook ReviewEngland

I had a great time sailing with Kate and Cyrus 🙂 also really enjoyed the steak and the microbrew. Thanks you guys! Looking forward to more fun times like that in the future with you both.

Bob G. | Direct ReviewPrinceton, MN

Their experience and expertise put my mind at so much ease and I had the most amazing time on their boat, being that I've never been on this kind of boat before. When it comes to hospitality and meals they are an A+ plus plus. The food was was amazing and I feel like I have lifelong friends now. I would definitely recommend them to all of my family and friends.
