MEET THE CREW

Capt. Kyle Billik


Captain Kyle has spent his life learning from the Ocean. He was raised by his mother Danita, a USCG 100 ton Masters Captain on the ICW of south Florida and beyond, and his Grandfather Sy, who lived in the Caribbean most of his life and survived hurricane Andrew at sea. Sy was an extremely talented tradesperson, and built his cement trawler himself from a bare hull, and taught all he knew to his daughter and Grandson. Kyleʼsʼ mother Danita was making passages to Panama as early as 18, later restored a classic 62ʼ wooden motor yacht to showroom condition among many other impressive accomplishments.


From an early age Kyle was responsible for driving and maintaining the dinghy, helm duties aboard his grandfathers cement trawler on the Abaco Banks and learnt to sail in Abaco, Sailing Dinghies and aboard his mothers classic Cheoy Lee sailboat. His first license to operate a vessel unsupervised on the ICW was earned at 14, the youngest age allowed by law. He traveled between Florida, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and the UK all of his childhood and teenage years.

In his teens and early 20s, Kyle became a mechanic, learned fiberglass repair and fabrication and other skills, but gravitated towards a career as a professional guide. From Wave-runner and river tours in Charleston, Water-sports activities, Offshore sailing in the Gulf Stream and Kiteboarding in the T&C and everywhere in between, Kyle has always enjoyed meeting new people and sharing his love of nautical thrill seeking. As far as hobbies go, Kyle enjoys Kiteboarding, Free-diving, Fishing, Diving, Wake-boarding, Horseback Riding, Sailing, Traveling, Hiking, Drone Photography, and much more.


At 23 he purchased a sailboat in New York, restored her and sailed her to the Virgin Islands over the course of 3 years. Along the way exploring the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Spanish Virgin Islands, and finally falling in love with the USVI and BVI. There he got his USCG 100 ton Masters certification, as well as Aux Sailing, Towing, Management and Leadership, STCW and Advanced SCUBA certifications.


From Captain School in Saint Thomas he was recruited right away to run a 60ʼ luxury catamaran in the BVIs, where he enjoyed hosting his guests and showing them all that the Virgin Islands have to offer. During the off season he sailed to Grenada and ran charters in the Grenadines and Saint Vincent.

After 3 great years of making life long friends and offering “the vacation of a lifetime” Kyle finally found ReAction, a veteran Term Charter Luxury Catamaran. She is the perfect vessel to offer these exceptional vacations not just in the Virgin
Islands, but all over the world!

Chef Nicola Greenaway


Nicola hails from Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, the home of Shakespeare! Although she was born far from the ocean, she first scuba dived when she was just ten years old and from then she was entranced with the beauty of the ocean and of its therapeutic benefits. She holds a degree in psychology and is passionate about sharing the tranquility of SCUBA and the conservation of our oceans with all that will listen.


From working as an instructor and guide onboard yachts in the Bahamas and Virgin Islands, a five star resort in Cyprus and various other islands within Europe and the Caribbean she is never found too far from the ocean! She loves all water-sports and is particularly fond of swimming, with the aim of swimming across the English Channel in the next five years.

Nicola's passion for cooking and travel shows in the beautiful meals that she produces. Priding herself on a fusion style from the many countries she has visited including heavy influences from Europe as well as Asia. She strives to make people happy through the meals she prepares by appealing to both taste and visual senses. Of course she is happy to accommodate dietary requirements and caters to all palates. Her menu is generally focused on healthy delicacies using the freshest local ingredients available.

Away from the Galley and the water, she loves to explore new destinations and cultures. She has also read the vows for over two hundred weddings and renewals across the world from Haiti to Norway and Miami to New Zealand.

Nicola has worked within the customer service industry for over a decade and is looking forward to welcoming you aboard Yes Dear and helping to create an unforgettable vacation along with Captain Kyle. Sharing her absolute passion for the ocean and providing an unforgettable culinary experience she endeavors to deliver the very best experience to all guests in and out of the water!

Kyle and Nicola really deserve special recognition. They were a last minute crew change that took us on at a time when most crews were already heading south. They had little time to prepare for us and yet, pulled off a fabulous trip.

Life Doesn't Get Any Better!

Hands down the best vacation ever! Kyle and Nicola are just fabulous hosts as they chartered me and my friends around the beautiful Virgin Islands. Each day we stopped at a new snorkel or dive spot. ReAction was everything we expected and looks just like the pictures. My favorite part was the hammock Kyle put up on the front fo the boat - I even slept there one night! Kyle was great at being flexible on where we went and making excellent suggestions on what beaches were best on which days and what restaurants served excellent local cuisine. Make sure you try the local lobster. Nicola always had a mug of coffee ready for me as soon as I woke up and the meals were great. Between the food, the drinks, the salt water and sunshine, and good vibes, you will not regret booking a sailing charter on ReAction.

Love, Love, Love
We have been sailing with Kyle on two separate trips and are scheduled to go again this Christmas and cannot wait! Kyle is an amazing captain and person and we just can't go too long without seeing him! Kyle has been sailing forever and knows his stuff!! If you want an experienced, safety conscious, fun and accommodating crew, this is your boat! the trip itself is magical. Everyday is a new adventure ...waterskiing, snorkeling, dinghy slingy, bar hopping, island exploring or just hanging out on the big mat! We are planning on getting scuba certified on this next rip just to add to our adventure. Playing games at night and dance parties are super fun too! My 20 something year old children were apprehensive before we went on the first trip. Their concern was close quarters and they thought they would be bored. They were so wrong! You can be as active or lazy as you want to be! They beg to go back every year! The food and drinks prepared on the boat are amazing. We actually make Kyle's breakfast frittata at home now! this is a perfect trip to spend quality time with your family!

My Favorite Place

Thank you for an amazing trip. The BVI is my favorite place in the world so thank you for making my return trip so great. The food was incredible and Kyle you have great taste in music (I have added many more songs to my beach playlist)
