“Everything with the trip was really good. I could start telling you every detail but it will be too long….. Jim and Aurora made our trip  a very pleasant experience. We enjoyed the route the captain suggested. Everything was smooth and effortless on his part so that made us enjoy and feel like a truly real vacation.  Glad we did this trip and deep thanks to you for coordinating and arranging this wonderful trip.

I also wanted to tell you that even though we had a little bit of concern about the situation on the islands,  it all worked out perfectly. The trip, I could say, was more exclusive without tons of boats around us. We had the whole ocean and islands to ourselves !!! Lots of snorkeling with plenty and beautiful flora and fauna. I totally recommend this trip to anybody who wants to enjoy a wonderful sailing experience. Relax, have fun and be happy.

The hotel we stayed at for one night was the only thing you could tell there was a storm because of the use of a generator at night but that was not an inconvenience at all. The weather was perfect.”

“We were so thrilled with our vacation, the crew knew all the best places to to take us which were still beautiful and not showing damage from the hurricane.    One of the best things about the trip was that there were so few boats around so we had many of the places to ourselves such as The Baths, Trunk Bay, and snorkelling at The Caves.  We even got to sit and have a cocktail with Foxy himself at Jost Van Dyke!  I would highly recommend the BVI at the moment and would encourage anyone to go”

“Veronica was crucial to the success of our vacation. She is extremely attentive to the little details, thoroughly communicated our preferences to the captain and crew so they were prepared with our dining and entertainment desires and arranged all of our transfers seamlessly.”

“We had an incredible time on the Avalon and in the BVIs. “

Our meals were fabulous! We were blown away by the food and the presentation of the food. There was plenty of food for every meal including gourmet snacks and desserts! Our drink requests and food requests were all met and exceeded our expectations. Carla and Marie worked wonders in the kitchen. They were very cheerful and sweet as well as efficient. I miss them already and sincerely hope that I can plan another trip with the same crew of Alex, Carla and Marie!

The boat exceeded all of our expectations and we are already recommending it out. I actually gave someone your email and phone number today Veronica!

Veronica, you were very helpful in answering all my questions regarding the boat and I think I had so many that no other information was needed.

Thanks for all of your help!”

Catamaran Avalon in the BVIs - June 2015

“I just wanted to thank you for the greatest trip of a life time!!”

“We really didn’t know what to expect having never been on a boat longer than a few hours at a time- My husband was reluctant to go as every one of his experiences on a boat has ended with him being incredibly sick.”

“This trip out did our greatest expectations! The crew was amazing tailoring to our every wish- the food was above 5 star and it was incredible to us how this could be accomplished with such a small kitchen. Each day was better than the next and we have never been more relaxed in our lives. If anyone ever needs a reference please do not hesitate to have them call us. I hope one day we can take this trip again.”

“Re-entry has been tough!”

“Ronnie, you could not have matched us any more perfectly. Ian and Jody were the perfect hosts, the perfect captain, playmates, chefs, bartenders and now we are proud to call them friends!”

“Thank you, thank you! We are so very grateful that we had you to “discover” them for us. I could go on and on about how wonderful the trip was, how delicious the food was, how clean and well kept that boat was, how fabulous the cocktails were and how special Ian and Jody are!”

“You are the best and so are they! Again, thank you!”

“We had the trip of a lifetime”

“Just a short note to let you know how wonderful the experience was on Lady Dominique 2 last October”

“As you know, a small group assembled for my friend’s 50th and what a time we all had! Between the snorkeling, swimming, beaching, sailing, eating, drinking, laughing, hiking, relaxing, reading and on and on it was a magical week. The boat was absolutely perfect-comfortable, air conditioned, clean and well kept. The catamaran (as opposed to mono hull) makes a huge difference in stability and comfort. For those of us who were less comfortable on the water, the sailing was smooth and the boat managed brilliantly.”

“The captain was top of the line. Helpful, experienced and very cautious. Safety first but he was most helpful in ensuring that we all enjoyed the various activities that we hoped to do. The captain knew when to be there and knew when to let us be. We all felt a sense of privacy while at the same time well cared for in all respects.”

“The chef was terrific. We had asked for a relatively healthy menu and that’s what we got! Veggies, fruit, fish, chicken. All fresh and prepared daily.”

“Really, The week was terrific and I highly recommend it to both sailors and non sailors. It’s a great way to spend time with friends or family.”
