Meet your crew.
Nim and Fabiola Hirschhorn
Captain Nim is a US Coast Guard-certified captain and an experienced PADI Divemaster. He has sailed extensively throughout the Caribbean: the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos, and several areas of the world’s other great waters – including the Mediterranean, Aegean, Adriatic, and the Andaman Sea…and even through the Suez Canal and across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to the United States.
Nim is a former information technology executive and an Israeli Air Force combat veteran. He began sailing the Mediterranean at age 12, and became certified in open-water scuba diving while a teenager – becoming a divemaster not long afterward. Nim is also an award-winning mixologist. He’s known for his ‘endless stories’ and LUNA’s guests describe him as “naturally hospitable and welcoming.” Nim is fluent in English and Hebrew (and can nod and understand more Spanish than he will admit to!)
Chef/First Mate Fabiola is an Island girl with a European heritage – who literally grew up on sailboats. She has undergraduate and graduate degrees in business, and worked for many years in Wealth Management before moving full-time to life at sea.
Fabiola's love of food and creative cuisine began early – raised in a family of amazing cooks, she received as a gift her first cookbook at the age of eight and has had a fascination with delicious food ever since. She has successfully catered high-end parties and corporate events. She also has training in all aspects of food safety and hygiene.
As an award-winning chef, Fabiola enjoys infusing healthy, fresh, local ingredients into fabulous international dishes learnt from a life well-traveled and a love of global cultures. Her delicious recipes have been featured in several magazines. Fabiola delights in tailoring the menu and creating special moments for each group of guests aboard. She is an expert at creating the perfect atmosphere for guests onboard LUNA. Fabiola is fluent in English and Spanish and is a USCG Master Captain.
Together, they are ready to host you in the adventure of your lifetime!
