Captain Cory Busichio

Cory and Emily both have a strong love for the water and anything fun in the sun. Together they make a magnificent team and will go above and beyond to make your vacation memories last a lifetime.


Cory's passion for water sports started at a young age while growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, a few miles from Annapolis, Maryland, the Nation's sailing capital. He has over 20 years of experience skippering, racing, teaching and captaining sailboats and is willing to show anyone the ins and outs of the sport. He has been cruising the Caribbean since the late 90’s aboard large sailing catamarans and can share his extensive knowledge of the islands, restaurants and culture with you. With a passion for cooking and 3 years in the restaurant service industry as a craft cocktail bartender, he and Emily will provide first class dining and beverages while accommodating any customer requests or needs. As a team, they share responsibilities in the galley preparing meals and catering to their guests.

She has always had a passion for the water which began behind a boat, wake-boarding and water-skiing.

Together, they ran a successful standup paddle board and kiteboarding retail store in St. Augustine, Florida and married in 2017. Their passion for travel, kitesurfing and scuba diving lead them to chartering catamarans for their clients in the Bahamas where they quickly realized they wanted a lifestyle change. They are both USCG Certified Captains; Cory with his Master License, Auxiliary Sailing Endorsement and STCW, Emily with her 6-Pack and STCW.

They would love to have you aboard one of their sailing vacations. Their unique experiences, certifications and qualities will ensure you have the best possible vacation in the Virgin Islands with a laid back, professional couple who put safety and customer satisfaction first.

Sailing in the islands is amazing! The temperature is awesome, the water is beautiful with the different shades of green, and there are wonderful places to see and explore. But what really made this the best vacation ever, with out a doubt, was Captain Cory and Emily. Their life experiences lend perfectly to taking care of their charter guests. When you combine their time in the service industry, their time spent growing up on the water, and owning their own water sports store, it uniquely qualifies them to provide a level of service unmatched by any charter boat available. Some days on our trip we wanted to do everything and some days we wanted to do nothing but relax. They were prepared everyday to make sure what ever we felt like doing was a accommodated and memorable. I don’t know if I can put into words just how amazing the food was! We tried at the end of our trip to determine the top 3 meals of the week which in the end was an impossible task. We had picky eaters, individuals who would try anything and even a vegan on board. Emily catered to everyone’s needs flawlessly with 5 star level food.

  Our trip started getting on a boat with Captain Cory and Emily and at the end of our trip it felt like we were saying goodbye to two new friends. When I do this again I am more interested in booking a trip where ever they are sailing and less about the destination.

Hey Jack & Cory - hope y'all had a quiet and restful weekend!  I can assure you our crew was taking it easy after last week.  WOW what a great time!  Donna and I wanted to say a huge thank you again for everything you and your teams did for us last week.  It was truly a trip of a lifetime and one that will be hard to beat.  (however there is already talk of another adventure once the BVI reopens!)

I want to be sure we get the word out about how great you and your crew were last week and how well you worked together.  The teamwork was seamless, the food and coordination of happy hours was amazing, activities were exactly what we were looking for, the live music - wow that was a blast!  So many great memories!

You guys absolutely killed it last week so don't be afraid to ask!  Our group are more than happy to get the word out!  Let me know.

ATTN,

My name is Dave Wood / my wife is Regina Wood … and we sailed aboard the Euphoria this past week (FEB 21-26).  I wanted to take time to briefly write … and advise you as to what a world-class experience we had.  Our reason for the trip was to celebrate our friends’ 50th birthday / we had seven couples in total (was a tandem cruise with Tellstar).  Despite our crew’s extremely high expectations for this trip … the end-result far exceeded our hopes on every single level.  The vessels are magnificent / the venue is unmatched.  We also had excellent weather – and I know that greatly adds to the experience.

As one of three couples to sail on Euphoria that week … we were especially impressed by the crew:  Cory & Emily Busichio.  Team Busichio’s commitment to delivering such a grand experience made the difference here – hands down … and here are a couple of reasons why.

  1. THEY ARE GREAT AT WHAT THEY DO:  Exhibiting an acute attention to detail – no point of order was too small / nothing was overlooked to ensure the best experience.  These guys care about delivering excellence / ensuring Euphoria’s guests have the best possible experience.  Two examples here:  (a) our group really enjoys live music.  So how do you pull this off in a COVID-centric / very remote USVI environment?  A somewhat bizarre / challenging request indeed.  But Cory came thru by locating / booking the band “After Irma” who regaled our group with a brilliant 2.5 hour live performance on the fantail of Euphoria (for some of us it was the highlight of the trip) … and (b) I was hoping to find a little bar / haunt in Cruz Bay where I had spent some good memories back in 2003.  The goal was to grab a quick libation and buy another T-shirt.  As promised … I caught a ride to shore … found the place but it was temporarily closed.  The jaunt still made for a very fun side excursion.  Two days later … and totally unbeknownst to me … Cory had made his way back to Cruz Bay and found the bar when it was open / he bought me the T-Shirt I was seeking.  Totally unnecessary … but you can imagine how that gesture made me feel.
  2. THEY ENJOY WHAT THEY DO:  Always seen with smiles on their faces …  Cory & Emily seem to relish in their roles – which are quite challenging when you think about it.  Catering to so many different preferences can be a tough task.  But they do so with ease.  No examples are more illustrative than (a) meal time.  Emily’s meals are brilliant:  the presentation / the delicious quality / the variety.  You can tell she greatly enjoys “WOWING” her guests with these endless options.  And I have never been so happy to sit down to eat.  And (b) the amount of time Cory & Emily spent chatting up / enjoying / interacting with our group.  It not only made for a great vacation – but it made for an excellent way to make new friends.


So as we return to reality … I want to thank you all for such a great time!

We will plan to come back again soon!

To the management team for the Euphoria,
I want to express how much we appreciated the excellent crew of the Euphoria.  You have an accomplished crew that were warm, confident, accomplished sailors, funny, energetic, amazing hosts and certainly people that I would want to represent my brand.  The owners should feel very confident that they are doing a fabulous job representing your firm and caring for your vessel.
We had a perfect week made exceptional by the care and engagement of a tremendous couple, Cory and Emily.  Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.
Best,

What an amazing adventure on our Euphoria Trip.  Cory & Emily - you really outdid yourselves - Who knew it was possible that 2 people could be so talented from Captain to fishermen, divemasters, yoga instructors, chefs, bartenders, entertainers and "therapists".  We loved getting to know you both and hope to see you soon. - Same time next year?  - Heart, The Smyth Crew

This was the best trip ever!!! Food...outstanding! Words can not describe this vacation... simply the best! Both of you are the best hosts ever. Thank you for everything and we will be looking for future charters with you both!

What an unbelievable ship and crew. Cory and Emily are the best hosts ever. They catered to everything we asked for, and set up an unbelievable itinerary. We saw it all, and they took into account what we were after during the entire cruise. The food was amazing!! You will not go hungry with this crew. All the presentations were right out of a magazine, with a ton of variety. Every plate, snack and were completely devoured. From fresh seafood (caught during the charter), short ribs to die for, to midnight spaghetti and meatballs, you will not be disappointed. I will warn you that we all gained 10 pounds on this tour. I will tell you that having a great charter is completely dependent on having a great crew, and these two are the best! We will be seeking them out for future charters.
Thanks for all the great memories, laughs, and all around fun Cory and Emily.
