Meet the crew for season 2021/22: Captain Jonah and chef Nicole

Captain Jonah: Born & raised in Colorado, Jonah grew up with a love for the outdoors. After studying Architectural Engineering at the University of Texas, Jonah worked in commercial design/build construction in both Dallas & Denver. After going on a sailing vacation, Jonah fell in love with life on the water and two years later, he traded in corporate life for a Yachtmaster license.

Jonah’s first sailing vacation changed his life and now he strives to create similarly incredible experiences for guests throughout the Caribbean and Mediterranean. While not at the helm, Jonah is an avid backcountry skier and backpacker who enjoys cooking alongside Nicole and sharing a meal with new friends, and preferably at sunset!

Chef Nicole: Originally from California, Nicole has always felt most at home while out to sea and exploring new horizons. Growing up in a very active sailing family, Nicole’s family vacations were often on the water exploring the Channel Islands off California’s coast. After heading to the Pacific Northwest to study Fine Art at Gonzaga, Nicole settled as a teacher in Seattle who spent all her school breaks traveling to new countries.

As Nicole’s love of travel grew, so did her love of exploring local flavors. It wasn’t long before she was inspired to learn cuisines from other cultures; making it her mission to take cooking lessons from locals in each of the places she visited and returning home to share new dishes with family and friends. After 7 years of these summer adventures, Nicole realized it was time to take a leap of faith and officially traded in her classroom for the galley, working as a charter chef in Croatia. It was there she met her partner, Jonah, and the rest is history!

Today, Nicole is passionate about helping her guests make memories and crafting the vacation experience of their dreams. When not in the galley, Nicole loves to snorkel, paddle board, dance, and hike with Jonah. Together, they can’t wait to show you the gems of the Caribbean onboard Mariel!
