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!

TESTIMONIALS
April 2021

Thank you again for all your hard work in making a wonderful charter experience for our clients!  We look forward to working with you again soon!

Captain Kyle was obviously no spring chicken when it comes to sailing, and he and Nik were VERY knowledgeable when it comes to the best places to find any sea creature you could imagine. They are the "dream team" when it comes to sailing, watching out for each other and tag teaming duties when necessary. We were astounded by the difference in travel by yacht or by land. There is no way we would have experienced the Virgin Islands the way we did by car! They taught my kids how to sail and how to tie knots. Kyle and Nikola had a seemingly endless supply of energy and always engaged with our family as if we were family of their own! They even spent their spare time playing card games with us in the evening! Kyle was always ready and willing to give us a dinghy ride anywhere we wanted to go, and Nikola is a SPECTACULAR chef! There was not a meal, drink or snack that was even close to a let down! We have decided that any other yacht vacation we would take would be a huge let down if Captain Kyle and Nikola were not our crew! We love them like family and are so thankful they were part of our vacation! Jessica did a great job matching our family with the perfect crew!

Our experience on Yes Dear could not have been better! The yacht is beautiful, Captain Kyle is professional and very experienced, and Nik is an extraordinary chef! What a beautiful world they were able to show us! We are so grateful for the opportunity to travel with them!

We just had the most amazing trip on Yes Dear with Kyle & Nicola. Couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect trip. There were 10 of us and we ate & drank & partied and relaxed to our hearts content! It was hard to choose between Nicola’s Painkillers or kyle’s! And the food was amazing. She made the most delicious homemade key lime pie for one of our Groups bday. And the tuna poke... I can go on & on. She even catered to our group with one person who didn’t like seafood & one vegetarian with ease!! Yum!! Can’t go wrong with this boat & crew!

Ok, my wife and I got invited for a week cruise on this beautiful sail/motor catamaran. We had no idea what to expect, but knew we were hoping for blue water and a great time.
Our hopes were answered and came early on! We arrived at the dock and boarded this luxury 58’ cat with the owner and his wife, 2 great additional couples and the BEST crew ever (if your not on a diet!!)
I cannot thank “The Captain” KYLE and his first and best mate NICOLA who prepares, dishes and serves the best and most presentable unique local island favorite cuisines.
We spent time relaxing, sailing, splashing around on the stern trampolines while under sail. Days also included shore stops on beaches, random remote dives for fish and lobster, and a lot of excellent blue water snorkeling.
While moored, early evenings and some lunches included a run to shore for local restaurants and shops.
I am looking forward to booking again and check out additional swim spots

To the “2 crew of you”, thank you very much for such a memorable fantastic time. Your yachting knowledge was far beyond what I had anticipate. You both worked so hard non stop. First up and last out, catered to all four couples request for food, drinks and entertainment. You two are incredibly wonderful individuals that really work great together!! We will always wish you the best.

First of all, what a SERIOUSLY cool boat!! WOW!! And to go with it... a SERIOUSLY GREAT crew!! LOVED Captain Kyle and Nicola!! WE had such a great time with them and we absolutely look forward to seeing them again!
I have to say, we all were very impressed with Captain Kyle's knowledge and sailing abilities. Everything he did was so effortless.... if you take a vacation with Capt. Kyle on "Yes Dear", you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.
Now.... let's talk about the gourmet food.... What Nicola can do with food all week long on the boat, is nothing short of amazing!! Everything she prepared was absolutely delicious and there was absolutely no shortage of her gourmet meals! (My personal favorite, Nicola's home-made key lime pie!)
The scenery speaks for itself.... you are simply in paradise. So its your choice to relax, swim, snorkel, fish, eat, drink, all while marveling at God's wonders.

"Yes Dear", the crew and the Caribbean was simply a incredible experience!
