Captain Wade & Chef Tippee Ball
Tippee & Wade are no strangers to the water or to entertaining friends and family. And they are very excited to be on the Caribbean charter scene! There is nothing they are more passionate about than watching friends and family enjoying their Lagoon 450F and making memories.
Their motto is “Dream it. Then do it”. And that’s exactly what they are doing. Both have an entrepreneurial spirit and love the challenge of a new adventure. They both retired early from the corporate world after 30 years and immediately started an online business and began to execute on their dream of owning a catamaran and chartering in the Virgin Islands. Both love to travel, but the Virgin Islands stole their hearts a few years prior when they were married on St John, so this is where they decided to execute their dream!
A funny story they tell is that when they met, Wade was an “all power” toy aficionado. He owned several “power toys” including a power boat. Tippee had developed a passion for sailing in her 20’s while sailing off the beach in Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina. And she preferred the quieter art of sailing versus power. When first asked about sailing, Wade’s response was “I don’t sail, I like power and speed”. That all quickly changed when Tippee planned their first sailing adventure off the coast of South Carolina. He loves to shut off the engines on their lagoon 450F and just listen to the wind. And as they say “the rest is history”.
Wade and Tippee have five children, ranging in age from 20-30 years old. Four daughters and one son. They also have three grandchildren. When they aren’t sailing or traveling, spending time with them is their favorite thing to do. They also love to fish and Tippee usually catches the biggest fish! But Wade is ok with that as long as it’s something she can cook for him.
Tippee’s love of cooking was inspired early in her life by friends and family who shaped her culinary talents. She continues to actively educate herself and learn new flavors and techniques in her culinary art. Her famous pasta with Italian Gravy is a frequently requested item from friends and family.
Wade has always loved the water, owning boats since college. Since falling in love with sailing, he has been actively educating himself on both the art of sailing and has received his captain’s license. Wade is an avid DIY’er and has ample opportunity to use his talents on the boat.
Whiskey Business also has a third crew member. He’s a four legged crew member who greets guests and enamors them with his piercing blue eyes. “Bo”, part husky and part gray hound was rescued by Tippee when he was three months old and is very emotionally intelligent! He’s never met a stranger and he might just be your favorite crew member.
Tippee & Wade believe that experiences and adventures are the best gift you can give your family and friends. And they love being part of helping others make memories to last a lifetime. They look forward to helping you and your family or friends make amazing memories on Whiskey Business!
