John's Bio
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, Caribbean, and Andaman Seas. After completing sailing school in the Virgin Islands, my first official week as a skipper was in Croatia where I had chartered a catamaran and filled it with adventurous (and very trusting!) friends. We sailed, dove underwater caves, scaled rock walls, and cliff dived. We cooked great feasts and had floating dance parties under the moonlight in secluded coves. We had epic bike rides along the coast and toured wineries in convertibles. More than anything we simply reveled in the wonder of it all! Since that incredible and memorable maiden voyage, I’ve been organizing sailing adventures all over the world.

Scuba diving and exploring under the sea is another passion of mine, and as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor I’d love to help others learn to enjoy the magical underwater world that awaits! Neverland will be seeing some major upgrades to enable us to independently visit and dive some of the world’s most remote and unspoiled locations. I’m also learning more about freediving and spearfishing and can’t wait to start catching more of our meals.

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!

Eryn's Bio

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 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 signature cinnamon green smoothie.

I attained my RYT-200 yoga teaching certification on the lush island of Koh Samui, Thailand, and my Yin yoga certification in Bali. 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.
