who organise your dream vacation

Nicola Van der Berg

CEO & Co-Founder

Nicola Van der Berg, the founder of D’Berg Travel Co. has been living in the British Virgin Islands since 2015. After extensive travel in her younger years she finally decided to settle down in the beautiful Caribbean with her husband and two kids.
After working as charter crew and charter concierge for 8 years she decided to follow her dreams of owning her own travel company. She is now a qualified CYBA broker. With Nicola’s experience and knowledge of both the British Virgin Islands and the charter industry, together with her passion for travel this seemed the obvious route for her. Nicola loves to plan guests’ vacations and will organise everything down to the finest detail in their itinerary, if requested to do so, to make their experience seamless and one to remember for a lifetime!

Gavin Van der Berg

Charter Captain, Industry Expert & Partner

Having been around boats since the age of five, Gavin’s parents were in the process of refitting a boat for a circumnavigation. Due to a tragic accident which lead to the loss of his father, this dream had to be put on hold.

The boating world became his natural choice of career, where he went on to acquire the qualifications to become a certified sailing instructor. Gavin inherited the dream and his ultimate goal is to one day sail around the world. Free diving is his greatest passion with hobbies including surfing, fishing and most water sports under the sun. Gavin has been a charter captain in the British Virgin Islands for the past 8 years and knows the waters better than most. Gavin holds an RYA/MCA Yacht Master Ocean Qualification as well as a Chef City & Guilds Certificate in Catering.

Some of his current sailing accomplishments are, across the North and South Atlantic, circumnavigated the Baltic Sea, eight seasons in the Caribbean, two seasons in the United Kingdom and France, up the East Coast of Africa, Durban to Kenya as well as stops in Madagascar and not to mention a surf/sail trip in Indonesia.

Customer Feedback

a word from our valued guests

Gavin and Nicola deliver the experience of a lifetime! We sprung a surprise wedding on them just a few weeks prior to our trip but during COVID this seemed problematic. Then came Nicola to the rescue. She became the best wedding planner I could ever have dreamed of. Gavin and Nicola gave us the best experience possible and are truly two of the most amazing people we’ve been blessed to meet.
