Everything about  the trip on YES DEAR was fabulous.  Andrei worked out an itinerary that included some out of the way spots as well as the more well known stops that we specifically wanted to see.  Leizl kept a stream of delicious meals and snacks going so that I am sure everyone gained weight over the week.  Together Andrei and Leizl were great fun and we exchanged numerous fun stories.  Having been on several similar crewed charters in the Bahamas in the past, this was by far the best.  Can’t wait until we can do it  again.  Regards, Clint

Christina, Just wanting to give you a response on how the cruise aboard the OCEAN SEVEN 2 went:

First let me say something about the crew: simply fantastic !!!

The captain Gaultier: knowing exactly what to do, always there for anything, (and even having a secret that he only gave up 3 days after probably having a laugh: he understood everything we were saying in Portuguese since he has spend some time in brasil already)

The chef Caroline: simply outstanding, the food was always exceptional and the attention to all our details and wishes were great, only one complain: how can I justiy going to eat in ok restaurants here after having one week of feasts?

The first officer Martin: excellent character, always there to teach the kids and to have fun with them

Both hostesses were very good as well.

Thank you for everything

We had a wonderful family vacation on the SEA OF LOVE. We celebrated a 60th B-day on the trip. We had such a good time being together and experiencing the islands in the BVI. We Loved snorkeling, diving and swimming at the beaches and off the boat. Carol attended to our every need and fixed us fabulous meals!!! It was so relaxing and fun!Family games at night and enjoying the wonderful breezes were loved by all. Thank you Carol & Joe!!! Best Regards & Hugs! from Tammy.

Wonderful trip! No problem satisfying every ones’ interests and tastes. Carol & Joe are great hosts. Can’t wait to come back! Loved every minute of the trip. Aloha, Dave

Great trip. Carol is an incredible cook and host. It was wonderful to see so many different places in one trip – Lindsay

Thank you for this AMAZING VACATION! I had lots of fun on the Sea Of Love. Hoping I can do it again with you guys J Thanks for doing the virgin drinks and they were really good and it was fun being your assistant. Alex

What a great vacation! The perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. The diving was incredible.with great marine life and an awesome wreck dive to mix things up. Carol’s cooking and bar tending were exceptional and joe’s island knowledge led us to all the right snorkeling spots and beach front bars. I can’t imagine a better sailing vacation destination than the BVI and the Sea Of Love was the ideal, care free way to experience the islands. David

Thank you to Carol & Joe for your gracious hospitality – We’ll have wonderful memories for years to come. J of our vacation on the SEA of LOVE catamaran.

We are now back from Belize and in Houston at full speed working. The chartering experience was great. The catamaran IMPROMPTU was very comfortable and quiet well kept. Charlie was amazing!!! He made the trip worth our while. He is a great captain!!!

Roan was very nice and accommodating. They get along very well and made us feel great on board. The itinerary worked great.

We were very pleased to spend the day at a very nice resort in San Pedro with nice accomodations. We were able to catch up on our world cup over there and take a nice long bath. I was able to cook home made pizza on board from scratch and made a sea food paella for every body. We sailed, fished, dove, and swam in the ocean. We visited a bunch of different islands. We had sashimi on board after we caught a tuna and then again after we harpooned some lion fish on the reef. For my kids and myself a vacation very difficult to beat. We sure would like to return and sail with Charlie again. Thank you very much for making it possible and for adapting to the different circumstances and set of events. Thank you again.

[Our charter].. could not have been better.  We had a blast with Xavier, Claire and Frank.  They were professional and fun and the boat was perfect for us.  The gang can’t say enough good things.  Thank you for your help and we’ll definitely keep you in mind for the next time.  If you happen to know of a boat that could possibly take 12 people send me an e-mail,

Hi Gail!!! Yesterday I was catching up on many things, but yes!!! Everyone was very pleased with the transportation, the boat, the food and specially the music!!!  We all danced and had a great time… perfect to celebrate the past year’s successes!

Everyone was very nice, polite and helpful, but wanted to point out CARLOS (Whose last name I ignore). Carlos went beyond his duties to help us out with a situation we had with a guest.

Our guest had issues with getting sick on boats, and Carlos took the guest and my colleague to the pharmacy so the needed medication could be purchased, making our dinner perfect!!!!!

Thanks a lot for all of your help! I too, look forward to working with you again! Warm regards,

Dear Tony and Lela, we had an absolutely wonderful time on the BELLINE II. “The best vacation I have ever had” was a frequent comment heard among the guests on the boat.

Our path around the BVI was as follows:
1. 1st night – Norman Island.
2. 2nd night – Peter Island
3. 3rd night – Virgin Gorda North Sound close to Saba Rock
4. 4th night – Anegada
5. 5th night – Monkey Point on Guana Island
6. 6th night – Little Jost Van Dyke
7. 7th night – Marina Cay

We sailed to and from Anegada. It was great. There was lots of wind and big swells to and from Jost Van Dyke so we motored those legs.

Brand and Jayde were an excellent crew. They both worked very hard at welcoming us and making sure that we had everything we needed and that everyone was enjoying themselves. They shared their knowledge of the area and had great suggestions of things to do. Everyone very much enjoyed getting to know them. We felt safe in Brand’s capable hands as our Captain and Jayde’s food was fantastic! She fed us like royalty.

If I was Brand’s and Jayde’s employer, I would definitely consider them to be “keepers”!
