On Aqua Life we want nothing but the best for our guest. Service and great dining is important to the charter and we have a couple different chefs on standby that we can hire to make every charter a custom experience.
Chef is freelance.
We know you're going to want to eat out a few times at local restaurants and we can discuss which days you'd like to do this when you arrive and what works with your schedule.
French pressed coffee, hot cocoa, water and juice we do have the ability to make cappuccino and lattes as well
Avocado and Poached Egg Caprese- This is poached eggs on a bed of avocado and wheat toast topped with sautéed onions and tomatoes with a drizzle of Balsamic glaze. Our owners love this healthy breakfast that gets them ready for the day.
Continental style breakfast- We typically set up toast, waffles, muffins and bagels with a selection of jellies and jams and cream cheese and honey. Bowls of Yogurt and granola and dishes of fresh fruit and a dish of boiled eggs. We can add more items to this, it is just our basic continental layout.
Fish and grits or shrimp and grits- Whenever our guests catch fish we love to cook their fresh catch and this is a great hearty breakfast to prepare you for a day of activities. If the weather wont allow fishing we have frozen grouper and shrimp as back up. Cheesy grits topped with fish or shrimp and a savory taso gravy. I can also add fried eggs to this if you'd like as I know many clients enjoy breaking a creamy egg yolk over their grits and gravy.
Killer Quiche- Spinach mushrooms and onions with chunks of chorizo and bacon baked into a flaky pie crust and served family style with fresh fruit and toast
Mascarpone Stuffed French toast- Thick slices of fresh baked bread made into decadent french toast stuffed with cinnamon sugar mascarpone and fresh fruit drizzled with maple syrup.
Honey Garlic chicken skewers- Marinated honey garlic teriyaki chicken grilled over our deck grill and paired with delicious, fluffy jasmine rice and topped with roasted broccoli and sesame seeds
California Turkey club wraps- Savory tuscan turkey breast wrapped up with chipotle mayo avocado lettuce bacon and provolone cheese. This is a great option for a beach picnic when paired with a fruit salad and Matt's famous Redneck Caviar. A dip/salad loaded with Black beans, shoe peg corn, onion and jalapeno.
Buffalo chicken pinwheels- These are a mild buffalo marinated chicken salad with cheddar cheese wrapped up into pinwheels with flour tortillas. I love to serve these with salsa, queso and a vegetable platter with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
Philly cheese cake sliders- Seared thin sliced deli beef with onions, peppers and mushrooms topped with provolone cheese and baked to goey, savory goodness. Paired with a variety of chips to pull from and a big green salad.
Honey mustard chicken bacon salad- A delicious main dish salad with an unbeatable combination of grilled honey mustard chicken, smoky bacon, creamy avocado, juicy tomatoes and spicy red onions on a bed of fresh crisp greens.
Roasted Pear Salad- Arugula topped with dried cranberries, blue cheese and walnuts stuffed inside a roasted pear with a lemon and honey dressing. A refreshing lunch for your sun filled days.
Happy Hour Appetizers:
Bacon wrapped pineapple skewers served with pork spring rolls and a sweet and spicy dipping sauce
Spinach artichoke dip with pita chips and crackers

Fancy Pants Chicken- A tasty, gorgeous, chicken dish with spinach, mushrooms, & prosciutto cooked in a white wine sauce that your family will love, paired with parmesan pasta and a side salad
Pesto Pork Tenderloin- Fresh pork tenderloin with a pesto rub marinated to tender deliciousness paired with pepper couscous and a 3 greens casserole. Individual ramekins of 3 savory greens in a béchamel sauce topped with crispy toasted panko.
Jamaican curry shrimp- A Caribbean favorite! Shrimp sautéed in a sweet and savory yellow curry over a bed of rice finished with a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
Mini Beef Wellington- Beef Wellington is a preparation of filet steak coated with pâté and duxelles, which is then wrapped in puff pastry and baked. Topped with al dente asparagus and manchego roasted cauliflower.

- TestimonialsSubmitted July 3, 2018:We had an amazing week on Aqua Life. The yacht is in great condition and is perfectly appointed. My wife and I and our boys (ages 12, 15 and 17) can't stop talking about how it was the best vacation ever!It was great to have the tender for exploring, fishing and snorkeling and we loved using the waverunners to cruise around and wakeboard. When we weren't on the water, we were spending great family time on the flybridge or in the saloon listening to music, playing cards or monopoly, or watching amazing sunsets!The crew was outstanding. Captain Tiago knew all of the right spots to take us to all around the Abacos and made every excursion a fun adventure. Claudia is the sweetest and made sure that we were always comfortable when we were on the yacht and all of our needs were met. She was great with our boys and we all lover her.One of the highlights of our week was Karaoke night with the crew. We all let loose a little and were laughing all night.The entire crew were always present but never smothering. They are definitely very experienced and knew exactly how to maximize our enjoyment on and off board.I'd highly recommend Aqua Life and can't wait to book our next charter on it!Thanks,Alan Mendel

My family and I had an amazing experience where we wanted for nothing and could simply relax and unwind as a family! I look forward to future charters with you and would not hesitate to recommend you based on our recent experience. Considering the myriad of adjustments that were made just prior to the start of our trip you made it happen with no problems encountered.
Again, Thank you for a great, worry free adventure!

Re: Charter Trip on the "Aqua Life"
My wife and I wanted to thank you for all of your assistance in scheduling our most recent trip to the Abaco Island aboard the AQUA LIFE yacht. It definitely was a memorable trip, and the crew was most accommodating in planning an itinerary tailored to our likes/dislikes all the way to the islands we preferred to visit. The Captain and crew were extremely professional, attentive and always available to assist us. And I cannot say enough about the quality and taste of each meal prepared specifically for us. The food was spectacular! The entire trip from the scheduling of the charter to the fine service provided by the crew and meals were extremely impressive, which would encourage us to plan trips in the future. We look forward to future charters with you!
