Our food is prepared from locally sourced,
fresh ingredients

Food is an important part of what we offer aboard Catalyst & Westward. We believe that it helps create the strong spirit of community that we actively cultivate on our vessels. Prepared from fresh ingredients, purchased locally from Alaskan, San Juan, and Mexican farmers and fishers, we do our best to avoid processed foods. Instead, we use as many organic ingredients as possible.  We embrace the idea of eating locally and using green practices whenever possible.

Our Chefs

Tracie Triolo Westward Chef, Captain 100 Ton Masters, 200 Ton Mate, First Aid, CPR

Tracie grew up in Boulder Colorado where she developed a passion for food, music and the outdoors. She began working at an early age in her family’s restaurant and spent most of her spare time, playing music, skiing, backpacking, and refining her backcountry cooking skills.

Her summers were spent in a remote cabin on a large lake in northern Wisconsin, where boating, swimming, canoeing, fishing, and harvesting wild edibles consumed most of the long days. She received her culinary arts degree through the New School for Social Research from the New York Restaurant School in Manhattan. She worked in many upscale restaurants, as chef Garde Manager for Fairmont Hotels and as a restaurant chef for the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco before finding this life of living and cooking on these beautiful classic yachts year-round in Alaska, the San Juan islands and Baja.

When she last lived on land, it was in Mendocino County California and worked on the catalyst in Alaska during the summer months. During the school year, she would teach woodwinds at the Ukiah School of Music and played piccolo and flute with local symphony orchestras and Baritone Saxophone in jazz and funk bands. Tracie used cooking on charter boats as an excuse to return to southeast Alaska every summer and the money earned to support her decadent musician lifestyle the rest of the year. Now that we’ve added a winter season in Baja she works with us year round.

Michael Neswald Catalyst Chef

Michael began his cooking career at the age of fifteen, busing tables and washing dishes at a historic steakhouse in Canyon Country, California, where he grew up. Since moving to Oregon in 2011, he immediately fell in love with the Pacific Northwest – its wild native ingredients, local farms and beautiful vineyards.

He has proudly worked under some of Portland’s finest chefs including Scott Ketterman of Crown Paella, and Johanna Ware of Smallwares. With the support and blessings of his mentors, he further trained as a stagier at Attica in Melbourne, Australia, as well as Michelin two-star Narisawa in Tokyo, Japan.

Now aboard the Catalyst, he is excited to share his cuisine with the Catalyst’s wonderful guests and embrace the new challenges of working in a rolling galley. Nature being the one thing that makes him happier than cooking, he feels at home on the beautiful waters of Alaska.


Menus change every trip to accommodate the individual needs and desires of our guests and to utilize the local ingredients that are available at that moment. We base our purchasing decisions on what is fresh and beautiful and not on what is on sale at a giant food distributor. For example, on one trip we had guests from Singapore who really missed Asian food when traveling, and another guest with a nightshade allergy, so menus were created that worked well for all.

    On this trip we had many special dietary requirements. One guest was on a vegetarian diet that included eggs and dairy, another was a pescatarian who did not eat eggs or dairy, two were lactose intolerant, and one other ate no seafood. The rest of the guests were devout omnivores. But there was more common ground than first imagined. Everyone on board really enjoyed food, and our meals together included lively conversation with new ideas about how to eat well despite dietary restrictions. These menus worked well for all with only a few omissions and substitutions.
