Crew Profile

Capt. Terry “TC” Carter is a fourth generation Floridian who has spent most of his life on or around the water. While growing up on the sandy shores of St. Petersburg, he developed a deep love for the sea and began feeling the calling of distant shores. After his service in the US Air Force, he moved back to the Sun Coast where he started an entertainment company specializing in providing music for a wide range of audiences. When you couple that with his enjoyment of mixing a delightful libation, it quickly becomes evident he is drawn to ensuring a good time is had by all. His passion for orchestrating a festive experience has melded itself beautifully with his desire to live on the ocean. The consummate professional combined with the quintessential entertainer is certain to leave you wishing for one more day on your Caribbean getaway.

Chef Julia Ray grew up in Michigan surrounded by the Great Lakes. She developed a love for boating and sailing on frequent family outings on Lake Huron and the many inland waterways that are abundant in Michigan. Julia was introduced to the Virgin Islands as a child on the first of many annual family vacations more than 30 years ago. Julia learned to cook and entertain while assisting family members during daily meal preparation and by assisting with catering numerous gatherings. Julia has also worked in the restaurant and hospitality industries. She holds degrees in both accounting and social work and although she had a successful career in the corporate world, she left it all behind in 2013 to realize her dream of living in the Virgin Islands. She has since been employed as mate and chef, sailing throughout the islands.

Energetic and personable, Julia loves to meet new people and share her enthusiasm for the islands while ensuring their comfort and safety aboard and in the water. She is certified in first aid, CPR and fire fighting. She spends much of her spare time in the kitchen, preparing and perfecting new recipes for friends and family to sample. Julia delights in spoiling guests with gourmet meals and tempting treats. She prepares a wide variety of meals and remains flexible in her meal planning to ensure the freshest and best quality food is offered to guests. Julia takes much pride in her ability to work with guests to accommodate special diets and food allergies and develop menus that will leave everyone satisfied!

Charter Yacht SHANGRI LA Guest Reviews

July 2022

From the moment we stepped on the boat, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We really won the lottery with TC and Julia! All our needs and wants were well attended and it made for a very relaxing week. TC took us to all the Mose beautiful places around the island. Lots of gorgeous views and great snorkeling - truly incredible to see! Julia’s cooking is AH-mazing. I can hardly fit into any of the clothes I brought aboard. We never went hungry or thirsty! Thank you for a memorable week. It was everything we needed and more! The Boothby Family

June 2022

What can we say - you saved our vacation! We are so thankful for your willingness to scoop us up last minute and show us such a wonderful time - we are truly grateful to have the opportunity to sail with you and are so happy we were able to experience such a lovely time. The food was excellent, the ride comfortable and peaceful, and the experience phenomenal. It was just what we needed and we couldn’t feel more relieved, gracious, and at peace having spent the last week with you! Thank you!! Danielle & Michah

April 2022

TC & Julia - It’s so hard to put into words how wonderful this trip was! From the food, the laughs, swimming with turtles, beautiful sunsets, shooting stars and top class hospitality…our trip would not have been what it was without the two of you!! Thank you for caring as much as you do! And next time, we’ll bring Alicia’s sippy cup. :-) Ben & Alicia Joey & Tiffany

March 2022

To Captain TC & Julia - Sometimes it’s not about the journey or the destination…but about the people you meet along the way. Six friends came together to escape the stress of life in a truly beautiful place; but we quickly realized that it wasn’t the beauty of the islands or the sea that made this trip so completely amazing. It was both of you!! TC, your concern for our group’s safety and comfort was always always your number one concern! You are an amazing captain and I think we’ll all be laughing at your “character voices” and funny jokes for years to come. You started as our captain and quickly turned into a friend. Julia, Julia, Julia…your cooking is out of this world! Absolutely everything you made us was something you’d expect at a 5-Star restaurant. Your passion and love for cooking is displayed in every meal you make. The offer still stands to come to Michigan. :-). Thank you for your hospitality, your friendship and for 7 days on the water that none of us will ever forget! You guys are the best!! The Michigan Crew The Ross’, The Miller’s, The Irwins

March 2022

To Captain TC and Julia we’d like to say thank-you for allowing us a glimpse of your life aboard the Shangri La. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed seeing things above and below the water that were fascinating and memorable to us. By the amount of work that you both put into our cruise, we realize that this is more than a job for you and Al and I will remember this trip for a long time. We consider you friends and we thank you so much for the experience. Sincerely, Al & Betty Damiani “The greatest experiences you will ever have in life, are just on the other side of fear.” ~Captain TC Carter Our greatest experience was on the other side of the plane ride to the Shangri La! Thank you so much for a week of wonderful time, and food! Muchas Gracias! It was wonderful, and all I can say is you guys made our vacation very unique and exciting. Julia’s food amazing, TC entertaining amazing. 100% wonderful experience. God Bless you Sandra & Al Gillis

February 2022

Well what a magical week we have had on board Shangri La! We have done our fair share of bareboating and cruising and truly cannot remember a better experience. We got to do all the things we love – sailing, snorkeling, fishing and even got to experience the most incredible sunrise of my life. The food was delicious, fresh, well prepared, homemade seasonings and nerves and made with love by our chef Julia. TC was the consummate host - attentive, warm focused on providing a perfect day! Most importantly we laughed and laughed and laughed. We have made new friends with Julia and TC… And will be back to try and replicate this magical week. We leave refreshed and with our souls a little lighter than when we arrived.

It is hard to find the right collection of words to describe our stay on Shangri La. It has truly been an unforgettable experience that will go down as the best vacation I’ve ever been on. Beautiful scenery, ample family time, peak relaxation, unbelievable food, laughs, new friends… the list goes on. TC and Julia were a pleasure to be around and by the end of the week it felt as if we were one big family. Cheers to a remarkable week and experience.

Rise - Breakfast - Play - Read - Lunch - Play - Appetizer - Play - Dinner - Rest - Repeat God was I in need of a vacation - and you guys delivered. The food, the sights, the accents were all just so amazing! There is really nothing like beautiful scenery and good company! Thank you! Izzy Sun - Sea - Yacht - Wee…had the perfect recharge to balance two years of COVID restrictions. What 7 days in Nature’s Paradise can do to revive and bless the eyes with beauty. The venue is nothing short of amazing. Julia and Captain TC, thank you for the endless, delicious, creative and stunning meals and dishes, and playlists. Your smiles and banter created inclusive energy and good vibes 24/7. We look forward to the repeat soon!! Endless thanks! Caroline, Roger, Izzy & Luci

February 2022

The Crew, Capt TC and Chef Julia were fabulous, very friendly and welcoming. Both of them were very knowledgeable in their areas. We had an issue with the generator and it was handled well. The crew quickly devised an alternate plan to keep us entertained during the repair. I felt the the quality of the accommodations and food were wonderful. The Shangri La is beautiful and very comfortable and Julia’s food and presentation were fabulous. Both Capt TC and Chef Julia were very professional, but also very approachable and friendly. I felt very comfortable and confident with both of them. Since I was lucky enough to be a guest on the cruise I can not comment on the value of the cost of the trip. I do feel very lucky to have been included in Cathy’s birthday celebration though 😁. I don’t think I can say enough about Chef Julia’s cuisine. It was not only delicious, but absolutely beautifully presented. She worked tirelessly and everything she did was wonderful. Coming from the snowy Midwest it would not take much of a change of climate to make me happy, but the beautiful Virgin Islands never fail to impress with it’s beauty. I think everyone was happy with the water sport options on the boat. Snorkeling was very popular. The floating pad was used and the paddle board was tried. Overall it was a great experience. TC and Julia really helped make the trip very enjoyable. They both worked so hard, but were so friendly and attentive to all of our desires and needs. I can’t think of one most memorable highlight. The entire trip was such a gift. TC was so entertaining and yet very in tune with his duties on the boat. He handled the day to day running of it with knowledge and handled the problems without causing any stress to us who did know know about the workings of a boat. Julia is just wonderful. She is an artist in the kitchen, but also helped with the boat without missing a beat. Both of them worked constantly to make us have a fabulous trip. They are both great assets to your company. One other note. We caused a delay to the start of the trip. Because of an airline delay, we missed our connection to St Thomas. This meant that we could not get there until the next day. Capt TC and Julia altered their planned schedule to allow for our delay and still entertained the group that had arrived on time. We appreciated their efforts and their ability to switch up their plans to allow for the change.

February 2022

Sun, sea, yacht, wee..ha! This was the perfect recharge to balance 2 years of COVID restrictions. What 7 days in nature paradise can do to revive and bless the eyes with beauty. The venue was nothing shot of amazing. Julia and Capt. TC thank you for the endless delicious creative and stunning meals and drinks. Your smiles created inclusive energy and good vibes 24/7. We look forward to the repeat soon! Endless thanks!

February 2022

We have all had a fabulous time with you both. TC you are a great captain. You make sailing look so easy and you managed the boat so well. You were also beyond entertaining. I think you have moved from second to the best captain in the islands. Julia you are so talented in the kitchen. Not only in your delicious food, but it is all so beautiful. You are an artist in the kitchen. We will all remember our time with you both, but wish it could have been longer. Thank you for all your efforts in making it a wonderful time. The Rheiner Family

January 2022

We have all had a fabulous time with you both. TC you are a great captain. You make sailing look so easy and you managed the boat so well. You were also beyond entertaining. I think you have moved from second to the next captain in the islands. Julia you are so talented in the kitchen. Not only is your food delicious, but it is all so beautiful. You are an artist in the kitchen. We will all remember our time with you both, but wish it could have been longer. Thank you for all your efforts making it a wonderful time.

January 2022

Julia and TC, Beautiful, amazing, relaxing, stunning and delicious don’t seem to cover it! As you have read in the prior few pages - this has been a perfect experience for our family! A better birthday present could not be had. Indeed, these are lifetime experiences that will forever be remembered! I thank you!! Mark Leiss

January 2022

What a week. A sizably round of applause to our two hosts - Julia and TC - who created a sublime environment for our family to disconnect, and reconnect with ourselves, each-other, and the beauty around us. Julia and TC - your hospitality was unending, and our trip wouldn’t have been complete without you. Here’s to the next journey together. Sam Polito

January 2022

I guess my whole family is going to take up this book now and I already wrote one for the family, but decided I needed to write one from just me too. As a busy college student who stares at her computer all day and night as a computer science student, I never really get the chance to unplug. I don’t think I’ve ever read as much as I have this week, and it’s been amazing. I really do love to read, and I just never have the time. Three books in one week is a new record! I can’t say I’m looking forward to the 4 degree weather that awaits me in Boston, but I will forever remember this amazing trip. Thank you for everything. Avery Leiss

“Sounds of the wind or sounds of the sea make me happy happy just to be me” June Polis This little poem sums it up - We all really appreciated the time on Shangri La tp “just be.” I think we didn’t even realize how everyday life crowds out time to sit and think, and watch and observe nature. The sky, the sea and each other. Being able to do all of that while being completely spoiled and taken care of by TC and Julia was truly special and made it an experience we won’t forget. TC immediately made us feel welcome as did Julia (except for on the mat) :-) They both let us know what the basic daily structure would be and other than that, let everyone to choose how to spend their time. The family could all relax and give it up to the expertise all around in captaining the boat, and in offering us one delicious meal or snack after the next. I truly enjoyed the whole experience and will miss you guys when we leave. Thanks for making the week the absolute best! Jamie Leiss

January 2022

Julia and TC. Beautiful, amazing, relaxing, stunning and delicious don’t seem to convey. As you have read in a few pages, this has been a perfect experience for our family! A better birthday present could not be had.

January 2022

Amazing. Incredible. Outstanding. 10 out of 10! Julia and Captain TC are fabulous hosts. We have been pampered and feted like never before. Julia’s culinary skills are off-the-charts…each meal is perfect. And she is such a lovely person…warm and inviting. TC is a great Captain. Safely getting us to the perfect place each day…sharing the history and stories of those places…and making sure we are safe and well-cared for. In the hospitality business, it’s difficult  to be nice to everyone…let alone being nice 24 hours a day for a week…but Julia and TC made it look effortless. A GREAT experience. We WILL be back!

January 2022

Thanks for an incredible week! Getting the family together in this beautiful part of the world was incredibly special for us. Very sad to be leaving to go home to the cold and snow, but with great memories to see us through to the next time! The Hermann Family

January 2022

We can say with great certainty that this is one of the best vacations we have ever had. How nice it was to unplug and enjoy the fresh, warm air as opposed to the single digit temperature we have at home. Both TC and Julia were more them wonderful; TC with his impeccable captaining, dancing, and stories, and Julia with her amazing meals, knowledge of reef life. We truly are so grateful for the amazing company you brought us this week and the beautiful sights you’ve shared. Sorry about all the mess...next time we'll bring our own paper towels.

December 2022

Wow! What a magical week we have had on the Shangri La! We have done our fair share of bare-boating and cruising and truly cannot remember a better experience. We got to do all of the things we love - sailing, snorkeling, fishing and even got to see the most incredible sunrise of my life. The food was delicious - fresh, well prepared, homemade seasonings and herbs made with love by our boat mama (aka Julia.). TC was the consulate host - attentive, warm, and focused on providing the perfect day. Most importantly, we laughed and laughed and laughed! We have made new friends in Julia and TC…and will be back to try and recreate this magical week. We leave refreshed and with our souls a little lighter than when we arrived. Curren & Ashley

New years 2021- Lets Play Two

The trip was great. And the crew (TC & Z) were absolutely amazing. TC really knew his stuff, about the islands, sailing, and the boat, and was super focused on ensuring we were enjoying ourselves! Z's cooking was amazing - she really did a great job exceeding expectations and surprising us with meals everyday, which is not easy given the closed quarters. and they really made us feel comfortable aboard the ship. I would 1 million % charter with this crew again - they were awesome. The boat itself was very clean and did not "feel" 4 years old. Best, Rob

February 2021- From Lats Play Two

Brokers Comments 2/6-2/12 The Boat was clean beautiful as pictured . what I enjoyed was the food and drink. Our Captain was the best he was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and funny. the itinerary was fantastic and our Chef exceeded all expectations; she was absolutely fabulous the meals was better than most restaurants the crew were such great hosts. We can't wait to be back

March 2021- From Lets Play Two

Dear TC $ Suzanne Start to finish…best vacation ever! Your hospitality is unmatched. You made us feel so comfortable in a setting we’re not used to. We rate the food a solid 10/10. A floating 5 star, all-inclusive resort! Your kindness and passion for this lifestyle show clearer than the water. Our activities were very enjoyable - we always had something to do…from snorkeling to sub-0winging. Thank you lots for the funny accents, jokes, and the entire Caribbean experience. We hate to leave, but we’re excited to see you guys next year! -Jeff, Jordan, Avery & Dylan

March 2021- From Lets Play Two

TC & Suzanne We had trouble coming up with the right words to describe the amazing trip we had with you. We know we aren’t the most normal family…Our family members being an amputee, one with seizures, one that loves the water, and one who is a workaholic. You all took care of us from the moment we stepped out of the cab. Your genuine kindness, respect and fun-loving nature made this the trip of a lifetime (and we have taken a lot of trips!). The food, the drinks, the fun - amazing! The only downside is the expectation of the food delivery and prettiness :-) Thanks for beating Gavin up on the tube. Grace will be talking about her fruit punch from the captain for a long time! We will definitely be back to find you both in the future, so please stay in touch. Thanks for caring about all of us. No detail was left undone. Thanks for the memories! We love you both! -Jeff, Elizabeth, Grace & Gavin (Casper)

April 2021- From Lets Play Two

With this being our first charter, we had high expectations. After planning for months, we hoped that we had not an unachievable bar for excellence. We couldn’t be more happy to say that our week on Let’s Play Two was way better than we imagined! Not only were TC & Suzanne first-class hosts, the quality and presentation of the food reflected that of a 5-star restaurant. Our itinerary suited us perfectly, and the steps that were taken to ensure our comfort were appreciated. We are now heading back to Detroit where we will soon begin planning our next charter in the VI’s. Thanks for all the memories!! -Dave Damian & Krista Sohm

July 2021- From Lets Play Two

My family and I just spent a great week with TC and Suzanne on Let’s Play Two. In my business, we always hear the complaints, reasonable and unreasonable, but rarely the compliments. It’s always good to find areas for improvement but I also like to know who’s doing a great job. Those people are the lifeblood of our company and they aren’t easy to replace. Both Suzanne and Terry were fantastic. Boating can look easy but it’s not. They made it seem effortless. Their relaxed demeanor just made everything better but I could tell that no detail was overlooked. My wife has a food allergy, but Suzanne had no trouble working around it. I’ve had great meals in great restaurants but her food was consistently as good and usually better, pretty amazing on a boat. I think you have something pretty special with those two. We had a great time and look forward to doing it again soon. -David

This was our long awaited trip due to cover and it was certainly wort the wait! The boat was pristine the entire trip. The sailing was amazing and every snorkel spot was better than the last. Amanda’s food was over the top. Special desserts were loved by all, especially the kids. They will miss the milkshakes, Shirley temples (Graham), and the treats each night on their beds. Graham can’t thank you enough for going the extra mile for the fishing rod. We will treasure our special shells from Brewers. So many fun activities. . . paddle boards, wake board, party mat, endless stories, history, and great recommendations on lunch spots. Any family would be lucky to have this amazing experience with you all on this gorgeous boat. This is truly a trip we will never forget with memories to treasure for a lifetime. We hope one day to sail again with you and hear Captain Keith say “The Pool is Open” and Chef Amanda says “Bon Appetite.” Cheers! Dave, Mindi, Graham, Jane & Kate

What a fantastic week its been on the Shangri La with Keith and Amanda! Our family of five had a wonderful time snorkeling, swimming, sailing, exploring, and of course dining on fabulous food and delicious cocktails. The ease and pace of life this week was just perfect. Thank you for all you both did to make this vacation fantastic! All the best, Mike, Alison, Madeline, Laura and Ellie

Wow! What an amazing trip we had aboard Shangri La! My wife Carolyn semi-surprised me with this adventure on my 60th birthday with our three boys John, Chris, and Sam. We sailed, explored the islands, swam, snorkeled, sub-winged but mostly we ate and were treated like Kings and Queens! Never before have we been spoiled like this. Chef Amanda’s cooking was to die for. Every meal and every detail was not only delicious, but it was presented with grace and style. Plus, a warm and friendly smile! Captain Keith’s hospitality, local knowledge, and expert seamanship was exceptional. The boat was kept spotless and ran like a top. Keith’s mixology skills weren’t too shabby either. Both he and Amanda kept us well hydrated to say the least. Thank you both for a wonderful vacation. We had a few days away that we will never forget and I’m sure we’ll be back again to visit this little piece of paradise. Smooth sailing on your future adventures and I truly hope our paths cross again. Cheers, John Princeton, Mass.

We are wrapping up a wonderful journey, sailing with you and the warm and hospitable Caribbean Sea. Our Captain has been blessed with good winds, our chef has seduced us with her culinary musings. Our paths crossed for a few days, full of generosity, thoughtful attention, and care. Thank you again for the time shared and a time of gifts. God’s speed on your next journey - the truth and joy of life is in it. The journey, not the destination. -The AXXXXX Family

We had an extraordinary experience! Fabulous service, Captain Keith and Chef Amanda always present and filling our wishes from our minds “even my strange habits of coffee with nonfat milk and non flat” water. Chef Amanda always on the go preparing the most delicious dishes. Captain Keith always up for some fun! Thank you for taking care of the kids and allowing them to have the time of their life! “I am not a woman of words, but being a German, I mean what I say and keep to my words and promises.” -Edina, David, & Luke Great time!!! Loved the drinks! Would come again. -Barron (age 10)

As we wind down this unbelievable excursion or shall I say, escape, I’d describe it as a once in a lifetime experience. So much more than a trip or a vacation. Whether it be fabulous accommodations (boat - Shangri La itself), the breath taking water and National Park setting, or the exceptional crew - Captain Keith and Chef Amanda, it truly combined to be the greatest mentally and emotionally uplifting experience. The memories we have made will with stay with us forever - the laughs, the conversations, the sailing! The snorkeling, the tubing!! Captain Keith and Chef Amanda were there at every turn making sure we had any and all we needed and were enjoying every moment. Many thanks to you both! We hope to make it aboard again!! Melanie and Lee -Nashville, TN

We had an amazing week on Shangri La! Captain Keith and Chef Amanda kept us safe and full! Amanda’s cooking was amazing. Everything was delicious. The challenge of feeding 7 individuals with very different tastes was not an easy task! Every day was a new adventure. Captain Keith made sure that we had just what we needed. Three generations together on the Shangri La will long be remembered by all! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Our first family boat trip and Wow, it blew away any expectation. Captain Keith and Chef Amanda are incredible. With a vegan and one picky eater, they made sure every meal was catered to each person’s liking. The food is 5 star! Mahi mahi, pad Thai, Caribbean chicken salad and desserts that never stopped! Plenty of activities and Capt. Keith always happy to do anything at any time. He picks the perfect locations and ensures everyone is happy! Daily drinks (especially the painkillers) and afternoon snacks were a hit. Always refreshing and very tasty! Capt. Keith and Amanda never stop moving, never stop caring for our experience. They are the ultimate hosts! Always building interesting conversation and full of local information. We could not have asked for a better family trip and assure you we will be back! Thank you thank you for the wonderful memories we will forever cherish! All the best, Tim, Leslie, Quinlyn, Timothy and Luke

Just finished an amazing breakfast of eggs, bacon swirls, grits, French toast, and mom’s. Listening to Jerry Jeff Walker. . . trying to extend our trip as long as possible before we start packing. We had the most amazing trip. So many memories. The most amazing scenery. Celebrating two milestone birthdays. Incredible food and drink, but the most memorable part of our journey was our amazing crew, Captain Keith and Chef Amanda, thank you for everything. Always sailing, always upbeat. Right by our side the whole time. It’s always about the people. Always. Thank you for everything. Especially for the cool peppermint cloths. Those were amazing. Hope to see you again soon. If you are ever in Austin, look us up. Best, Allan & Maria

I have decided to call our experience on Shangri La “The Ritz Carlton” of charter boats! Keith and Amanda are extremely attentive and intuitive to guests. The boat reminded me of being on a Disney Cruise because of the constant cleaning they do! They keep the boat very organized and do all the tidying up for you. We will have very special memories from the trip and thank Keith and Amanda for their kind hospitality! Food & Drinks: 10/10 Favorites: Fish Tacos, Pad Thai & Rum Punch -Ashley & Lance
