WHO WE ARE
We’re a couple of swashbuckling goofballs currently traveling the world and hosting sailing adventures on catamarans in beautiful destinations.
Soon we’ll be moving aboard Neverland to sail a world circumnavigation, exploring incredible places, connecting with and hosting other adventurers, building a collaborative creative outlet to share our experiences, and promoting ocean conservation.
John - Captain
Eryn - First Mate, Yogini, Chef
My name is John and I’ll be your captain on this adventure.
All my life I’ve craved adventurous exploration of this incredible planet that we call home—my curiosity is endless! After “adulting” for more than 20 years and spending way too much time behind a desk, I’m thrilled to finally be able to escape to Neverland.
I’ve been sailing for almost 10 years in many of the world’s most iconic sailing destinations, including Australia, French Polynesia, and all over the Mediterranean,
Scuba diving and exploring under the sea is another passion of mine, and as a PADI Open Water Scuba
I’m so excited for the next phase of this company and this dream with the most incredible partner I could have ever hoped for. Eryn and I can’t wait to share our adventurous fun with you!
My name is Eryn and I'm the Admiral of this adventure. John likes to joke that he's in charge of the boat—and I'm in charge of everything. (While I don't know about all that!) I do know we make a great team - and you have to admit, Admiral Eryn has a pretty cool ring to it.
I've loved boats and being on the water for as long as I can remember. My summers growing up revolved around tubing on Lake Michigan behind my grandfather's bowrider and playing King of the Hill with my cousins on a makeshift island of floating rafts. When my grandparents decided they were done with winter and moved to Florida, my parents followed suit and we left Chicago to keep playing on the boat stay close to family.
Always a motor-girl, my first sailing experience didn't occur until the winter of 2014. I immediately fell in love with the movement and quiet nature of sailing. Since the inception of Neverland Cruises, John and I have hosted trips in Turkey, Spain, Italy, Thailand, French Polynesia, and the Virgin Islands.
I have a passion for healthy, fresh food with a twist of comfort. I love taking cooking classes every new place we travel, most recently Thailand and Cambodia. My current favorite meals are maple-glazed salmon, or spicy papaya salad, and my famous cinnamon green smoothie.
I recently attained my RYT-200 yoga teaching certification on the lush island of Koh Samui, Thailand. I love to flow through dynamic vinyasa-style sequences and end in deep soothing yin poses that will leave you floating through the rest of your day. Whether I'm teaching yoga on Neverland, up in the mountains of Colorado, or somewhere in-between, my most heartfelt desire in teaching is to spark a little of that magic waiting patiently within us all.
This adventure is challenging, fascinating, awe-inspiring and absolutely once-in-a-lifetime. I wake up every morning excited about what's coming next, and no matter what we're doing or who we're with, I aspire to carry that excitement everywhere we go.
