The whole trip was fabulous! The crew was stellar. The boat was beautiful and the food was wonderful. We can’t rave enough about our experience. This boat is especially good for anyone who wants to do scuba diving. Captain Ian so enthusiastic about it and all the equipment is state of the art on the boat.
Thank you for your help coordinating our trip.

It has been a marriage made in heaven. Peter and Libby are that rare combination of consummate professionalism, a caring spirit of service and personal charm. Without a doubt, the most satisfying charter crew I have experienced.
Though Peter did not grow up sailing, he is today a superb seaman, mechanic and shiphandler. Though Libby is herself a vegan, she handles the whole range of cooking with skill. But her vegan dishes, like composed salads, fully satisfy, with their range of flavors.
The boat is a good sailor, its finish far more sparkly than one might expect for its age and truly fitted with every possible gadget and modcon. But above all, their constant regard for our comfort and well being is what makes them so special.”

“Hi Sarah, What a fabulous trip! Thank you for all the personal attention putting this together. The crew always makes a difference and CJ had a fabulous group onboard. We loved every minute and we were an energetic bunch and couldn’t wear them out.
A bit of a trade off with a catamaran as to big water sailing…. but we enjoyed every extra inch of space . That was a treat to experience! The food was divine….. CJ went out of his way to find activities…… next time we might charter in a more remote part of these islands …… sounds like CJs next charter is in the atolls here which would also suit us! Our new family Karaoke song will be “ Joy to the World” this was the best family trip we’ve had in years…..!!! I think we may have my husband “ hooked” !
A million Thank Yous XOXO”

“Captain Peet and Kate made sure that our experience on the Exodus was an excellent adventure. First there is the yacht. From the moment we walked onto the boat we knew it was something special. The care Peet and Kate take with the boat is obvious. The quality of the food was also a surprise. Kate takes great care and presents each course as an artistic achievement. My kids are not picky eaters, but our family has lots of diverse diets – vegetarians, avowed carnivores, non-fish eaters, etc. Kate managed to please all of us, and there were no leftovers.
Most importantly, and key to our great week, is that Peet and Kate are great hosts and great fun. We read many reviews and scoured crew bios since we knew the crew could make or break the trip. It only took us a day to realize that we had made the right choice. Peet is incredibly organized, knowledgeable and interesting. He offered options and ideas for destinations, but never dictated – it was “our trip.” He showed us the quieter areas of the BVI that we wanted to see, but mixed in beach bars and action for the kids.
Favorite moments include Peet bringing us coffee at 6:30 am each morning on the flybridge and greeting us with smoothies after snorkeling trips, Kate cheering on my kids as they jumped from the top of the boat, Peet taking our kids paddleboard skiiing using the dinghy, and Peet letting the rope go as our kids drifted far away in the floating island. Instead of wanting to get off the boat, we were always happy to be there. That is probably the very best endorsement.
Thank you for helping us choose such a perfect boat for our vacation. You cannot go wrong with this boat and this crew. We have already discussed booking our second trip next year and can’t wait to go back.”

It was truly a “dream vacation”! The boat and crew exceeded our expectations in every way! It was a score of 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.
The crew was exceptional – truly outstanding. Each of the crew members were so professional, kind, helpful, friendly – every step of the journey. My kids adored them as did all the adults. The food was amazing. The adults and kids all agreed that the meals on the boat were much better than any restaurant we went to.
The Maitai boat was gorgeous and worked perfect for our family. We loved the boat!! We were all so sad yesterday the trip was over.
Sarah, thank you for guiding us to such a fabulous boat with such an amazing crew!! We very much appreciate your help with the process. Please pass on to the crew how wonderful they are and our thanks to them and you for making this trip so incredibly special.

“Sarah, the whole charter was an absolute success. The Decompression is a 5 star resort with a 5 star crew. The attention to detail on all aspects of the trip was superb. The menu and preparation of the food was first class. I would highly recommend the Decompression for any future charter.

“We want to thank you for yet again another exceptionally wonderful trip! The crew on Ocean’s Seven 2 were beyond fabulous!
Caroline, Gautier’s wife, was by far the best chef we have ever encountered anywhere in the world at any restaurant or special place. Three meals a day never ceased to amaze us, and she was so adept at adjusting to some of our food preferences as a diverse group.
The six teenagers had a wonderful time, They had tons of fun and lots of laughter generated on their own. Gautier was wonderful with them taking them out to waterski and tube at a moments notice. The kids thought he was wonderful with his sense of humor and kind smiles.
Thank you for finding such an amazing boat and crew for us. It will truly go down in our history books of special times together.”

“We had a wonderful charter. Coral was a wonderful adventure in herself, offering a unique and authentic sailing experience, with a great deal of charm and excitement.
The itinerary was excellent, with beautiful sailing in 3-6 hour legs that were fun and manageable for the kids, as well as a great variety of lovely islands and cultures. Finally, food was delicious and the crew was excellent. Professional, hard-writing, thoughtful, hospitable and great fun.
We are also very appreciative of your knowledgeable and patient help in putting it all together. We’re looking forward to our next cruise!”

We had a wonderful time onboard Campai and really appreciated these unknown islands. It is nice to be alone in a bay and not with a lot of others. Diane’s food is always amazing tasty and fresh. We discussed next year and await Barney’s suggestions.”

“Our charter on the Catamaran Shida was out of this world, Captain Nando went out of his way to accommodate us and even in slightly rough weather he had the perfect plan and we nestled down in Ishia in a beautiful village to wait for the sun to reappear and continue our cruise along the Amalfi coast.
Nando is from the area and gave us first class information about the area and many choices on where to go and what do do. The food on board was amazing and skillfully prepared by our chef, its couldn’t be been more authentic Itialian and we all loved every minute of being onboard Shida. We would like to recommend Shida to anyone that wishes to charter a great Catamaran in Italy.”

“Thank you for your efforts in arranging our charter of IBIS for 13 days at the end of July. My son and I had a wonderful time. Capt. Robert and his wife Nellie Marie provided excellent service both as sailors and in making arrangements aboard and on land to assure us of a fun and comfortable time. The vessel itself was in near “bristol” condition and sailed easily and well. The accommodations in our private cabins were outstanding. Finally, I have never eaten food so tasty aboard any sailboat. Robert is a real chef and his food would be Zagat rated at 26 or 27. These people know their job and do it very well. They get a “10” for service and value.” – IBIS
“The trip could not have been more perfect, the yacht the area and the crew were all outstanding. Captain Jackson did now all those hidden places you had talked about and we were very happy with his abilities and expertise.
The chef created wonderful meals and all 8 of us enjoyed the new eating adventure each day. The stewardess and deckhands helped us with everything and anything we needed. The four equal cabins worked very well and our whole charter party was very happy.
We definitely want to book again for next year and as soon as possible please.”

“Bob, I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you what an amazing time we had on Ciao Bella. Your boat is spectacular in all respects (and it sails like a dream). The state of the art amenities were perfect and we had a great vacation. We especially loved your crew–Chris and Kate.
Chris is a tremendous sailor, very relaxed and incredibly respectful of the boat and the guests. I would sail with him anytime and anywhere. What can I say about Katie–an amazing cook, amazing sailor and all around terrific person. It was all I could do to prevent my wife from hijacking her to come home with us! “

“This boat is awesome! The crew is so nice and are really fun. It is so big and nice you can relax. Water sports were very fun and the snorkeling was awesome!
Everyone was very kind, charming, and thoughtful.”
