...for a sailing adventure are what Margaret and Taylor embody. This is their fifth season working as sailing professionals together and eighth year as a duo afloat, recently becoming the proud owners of the sailing yacht Ebb & Flow.
...through fun and curated adventure. Their service is crafted through many years of local knowledge and authenticity in their passion for sharing joy. From diving for conch that is later served up as ceviche to guiding a first time scuba diver, providing lasting memories in the world’s most special places is an opportunity this team is always grateful for.
To fuel a business and lifestyle that spreads meaningful joy, shares our passions, impacts our local communities positively, and encourages environmental stewardship.
Taylor grew up in Central Virginia, splitting summers between driving ski boats on the lake and traveling in the family RV to every state with a road to it. After earning a business degree from Appalachian State University with honors, Taylor pursued a passion for living outside of the box. Playing in a touring rock band transitioned to extended trekking in South America, which led to bartending in Breckenridge, Colorado. After a few years of the ski bum life, the dream of setting off for points unknown in a sailboat started to form. He jumped head first into sailing and within a short period he was a licensed captain living aboard and traveling on his own boat.
Margaret also hails from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and has sailing in her blood from her father, who captained classic windjammers in Maine. She began traveling internationally early on and developed a love for traditional recipes and an appreciation for the way a good meal can bring families and friends together. Margaret attended the National Outdoor Leadership school before earning her bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She is a certified yoga teacher and passionate scuba diver. Don’t miss the opportunity to slow down and appreciate nature’s bounty or learn cooking techniques with Margaret.
This is our fifth season working as sailing professionals and eighth year living aboard boats together, recently becoming the proud owners of a home, a business, and a yacht all in one fell swoop.
We've always had a connection over water, literally. We met in 2014 on the James River in Virginia somewhere between Lynchburg and Richmond. In some form or fashion, we were always on or near the water - we just can't get enough. Fortunately, we share a common thread to be radically independent and explore this beautiful world.
The concept of purchasing a yacht to owner-operate sprung from an opportunity to help meet the charter needs of a guest, though it has grown into so much more. We were crazy enough to do it and this journey is one of the most rewarding (and challenging) pursuits we've ever endeavored. We've chosen a path that allows us to pursue our business and our lives in ways that we can design with clear intent.
The name "Ebb and Flow" is inspired by the moon's effect on water. Moreover, it symbolizes the natural rhythms in life. We take this concept to heart, applying it in many aspects of our business. Through the process of growing as entrepreneurs in a world always "hustling", we strive to challenge the status quo and to foster greater awareness in pursuit of a meaningful life.
We balance each other. Taylor is incredibly hard working, Margaret is playful and spontaneous. We recognize that our time is precious and unpredictable. We Ebb when we need and we Flow when we can.
Thank you for being apart of our journey. We hope to see you soon, out on the water, of course!
We appreciate your interest and will get back to you as soon as possible!
