JC - Your Boating Coach

Venmo for Gratuity: @Javan-Cooper

Independent Captain | PADI Instructor | ASA Instructor



Hey there!

I'm Coach JC, and I'm a sailing instructor. I love to teach people how to drive their boats, because it's so much fun. The best part is that you get to spend the day on the water, and you get the added bonus of getting your sea-legs!

It's true that driving a boat can be scary at first—but it's also super easy once you get the hang of it. And once you do, you'll be able to sail around and explore like no one else can. That's why I love teaching sailing classes: I get to help people gain confidence in themselves, while also having a blast doing it!

If you'd like to learn more about my sailing classes, please feel free to reach out!

I look forward to showing you the beautiful British Virgin Islands.

  • Muchas muchas gracias for a great week 💛 One step at a time on the boat to get more out of my head and become the confident, more fearless, assertive boss lady I am in the rest of my life. I can guarantee I’ll be closer to that Michelle next time we meet! 😎 M.G. November 2022

  • I personally wanted to say how much I appreciate your skills and heart. You are a true gentleman and a great captain. C.T. May 2022

  • Javan was part of our family for 8 magical days cruising, snorkeling, dining, and general touring of the BVIs. He was professional, courteous, effective, and congenial in satisfying our many requests for the ideal mooring locations, meal reservations, and visiting “the right locations”. We would ask him to Captain / guide us on our next BVI charter. J.M. April 2022
