Hearty and delicious food awaits you aboard the Tree of Life. Start your morning with a cup of our fresh perked custom coffee blend from Dean’s Beans organic, fair trade coffee. Dean, owner of Dean’s Beans, is a friend of the captain and occasional crewmember as well. He has developed a custom “Tree of Life” blend just for our guests. We hope you enjoy it and you may take home a pound of the blend as a gift from Dean. Breakfast may be enjoyed on our beautifully varnished mahogany deck dining table or below in the main salon, in the comfort of our luxurious cabin. Breakfast choices may include freshly baked mango muffins or homemade banana nut pancakes. Fresh island eggs and oatmeal along with organic sausage and fresh fruit will delight your palate. We strive to offer locally sourced produce and ingredients.
For lunch, enjoy savory fish chowder or a hearty vegetable soup accompanied by a variety of fresh salads. Our chef delights in preparing creative dishes such as choice cuts of meat, line caught seafood, pastas, roasted vegetables and crisp salads. Another favorite for lunch is the light and delectable quiche served with fresh cut fruit and salad. Save room for dessert! Out of the oven baked cookies and pastries will add a sweet touch to end your meal. Dinner is a special time aboard the Tree of Life. As the sun sets, our guests can relax and may partake in a glass of wine or local beer.
The chef utilizes local foods to create unforgettable meals. Fresh fish, meat and poultry combined in creative recipes using herbs and spices will nourish your soul and delight your mind with unforgettable memories. The chef will indulge you with tempting dishes using local foods, healthy grains, and organic vegetables when available, creating delectable dishes.
Dinner is served on board every other night. The remaining nights, our guests can explore and dine at the many wonderful restaurants that dot the shores of the beautiful islands and ports we visit. For those who prefer to dine on board more often, arrangements can be made at the time of the charter reservation.
Soft drinks, bottled water, wine and local beers are always ready in our deck cooler. Help yourself to these at any time of day or night. Our chef can accommodate special requests and food restrictions if these are communicated prior to provisioning the vessel.
Water gear and toys
While at anchor, take a ride in one of our two inflatable dinghies. Take a row in the classic Trink dinghy that we keep on board. To satisfy the daring in you, set the sail and sail away but be sure to be back for dinner since you wouldn’t want to miss the chef’s special! We also have a paddleboard for the adventurous. Snorkel gear is available for everybody as well. Fishing gear is on board for those who choose to fish. Who knows, maybe you will catch that evening’s dinner. Scuba diving is available through our diving partners.
