- Crew ProfileCaptain: Jordan Gibson
Jordan was born on the East Coast of New Zealand. From a very young age he would spend every weekend fishing, sailing and surfing. After finishing school, he became a snowboard instructor in NZ and then followed the winter season to Park City, Utah. Feeling the warmer weather, and the love for the ocean, yachts began to call his name; he made the move from solid water to liquid. With traveling being a major part of his lifestyle, he jumped at the opportunity to work onboard yachts, and has continued to develop his skills ever since. He has been part of a very successful charter yacht for the past five years, and has developed a large array of skills and experience that he is putting into his own program. Spending large amounts of time in the Caribbean, Bahamas and the North East Coast of America, he has great knowledge of these cruising areas. Jordan and his wife, Nichola were head hunted by previous charter guests to run Pura Vida and have put their heart and soul into making this the best experience on the ocean. The crew bring the meaning of “Pura Vida” to life on the ocean, and want to share that experience with everyone that comes on board…Stewardess: Nichola Gibson
Nic, who grew up in the south east of England, has been in the yachting industry since 2013. Since her early years she has been brought up around water and quickly learned to love everything it has to offer. With a love for the ocean and a keen interest in marine conservation, she completed a 4-year Zoology degree at the University of Manchester. Wanting to focus her studies towards marine conservation and with a love for travel, Nic undertook a 6-month placement as a research assistant studying the dolphin population in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand - which in turn also provided her first opportunity to live and work on the water. After graduating and then stepping into the retail world for a year, at a British chocolate company, Nic was then given the opportunity to step into the yachting world. She began her career as a stewardess onboard a busy 130ft charter yacht, giving herself and her husband Jordan the chance to work together. Having gained the valuable skills and the experience necessary to provide an exceptional service to guests, herself and Jordan were then giving the chance to establish and run their own program onboard Pura Vida as a Stewardess and Captain team for the past year. Excited to welcome you onboard and show you all PV and her crew has to offer, Nic will ensure your vacation is one to remember.Chef: Kate Freeman

Jay was born and raised in South Africa, where after finishing school he started up his own landscaping and irrigation company in his hometown of Alberton. After four years of successfully running his business, he sold his company and found himself a job in yachting as a deckhand/engineer onboard a 52ft motor yacht. Having found an industry he was excited about and wanted to pursue, he continued working his way up on yachts covering many areas including, engineering, being part of a dive crew and working as a fishing guide. Most recently he completed two years as an Operation & Maintenance Manager on a private island in Panama - a country he grew to know and love. Having enjoyed a variety of roles throughout his career in the yachting industry so far, Jay decided to return to an engineering role onboard Pura Vida to extend his knowledge and skills, and also have the chance to explore new destinations. Jay enjoys fishing, diving and hunting and never lets an opportunity slip to have fun outdoors. He believes that a day in Africa can cure just about any problem but has found a different type of African peace right here on the ocean. Come share this with him onboard Pura Vida and be sure he will be there to help every step along the way of your vacation.
