CAPTAIN CONNOR & CHEF/MATE BRIANNE
Connor grew up in southern Colorado, part of a large family that was always on the move. Taking to the mountains and forests at a young age he grew up hiking, hunting, fishing, rafting and diving into anything that involved open skies and fresh air. From there he continued to express his love of nature when he pursued a BS in geology from the University of Wyoming. Two weeks after he graduated what was supposed to be a temporary hiatus in the Virgin Islands turned into the discovery of a new home. After he took his first job on a 52 ft Gold Coast Cat the rest, as they say, is history. Four years later his cummulative knowledge of top tier hospitality and boating work have allowed him to pursue his new found love of sailing, never ending horizons, and sunsets.
Since she can remember, Brianne’s dream was to work on the water. Hailing from a small city in NH, Bri made her way up to the White Mountains every weekend. Hiking, kayaking, camping were just a few outdoor activities that sparked her interests. After graduating with a master’s in physical education and health education, Bri took a chance and moved to the Virgin Islands in search of a life of adventure and learning. Her passion for the beauty and serenity of ocean living landed Bri a job working day charters upon her arrival to the Virgin Islands in 2013. She has since worked as a chef and first mate in the term charter industry and can’t wait to show her guests the ins and outs of the Virgin Island son Better Days.

When your kids look at you on the last day and say "I'm so sad this trip is over," you know it has been an incredible experience with lifelong memories. From the moment we stepped aboard the welcoming smiles and introductions, the delicious food, the humor and the overall vibe was specular. We are a family of 6 who have traveled on numerous vacations near and far, and this has definitely topped them all!! So, a sincere thank you to the crew for a successful giving is a magical journey. This is true paradise!
Our time aboard Better Days exceeded our expectations day after day. Everything we top notch from he delish dished prepared by Bri to the sailing and water games with the crew. Each day brought a new adventure from snorting, sailing, paddle boarding, exploring the Baths, Indian rock, Bubbly pool and White Bay. We made so many memories as a family aboard the boat and were truly grateful to spend Thanksgiving with the crew. What was the most impactful part of exploring the USVI and BVI was the genuine hospitality and kindness extended to all of us. We felt spoiled and at home from day one to the very end. You truly made the trip better. It's not everyday that we meet people like you both and we feel lucky to have spent time aboard Better Days with you! I think it's safe to say we will be back to the Islands and would love to sail with you again. Until next time we meet be safe and enjoy the sun, the sea and the sand (and the dolphins) We can't thank you enough for making with the best week of the year. All the best to you both.
As a busy family of four (kids ages 13 and 11) who likes to travel a lot – we rarely have time to sit down and write a review. In this case, we felt it absolutely necessary to let you know about our recent trip aboard Better Days. You are in good hands with the Captain. His sailing and island knowledge are impressive and it’s easy to see his genuine love and passion of all things outdoors related. His attention to detail is second to none. He proved to be very safety focused in every aspect of boating from sailing, to driving the dinghy and pulling our daughters wake boarding. He also planned our stops at Willy T’s and Soggy Dollar accordingly to avoid the rowdy drinking crowds that both places attract at times in order to ensure the best experience for our entire family. As recently certified divers and having expressed an interest in doing quite a bit of diving on our trip, he did not let us down. We would mention diving and before we knew it he had a spot picked out and had our dive gear set-up ready to go. He took the time to research the dive spot and brief us to be sure it met everybody’s comfort and skill level as well as personal expectations. During each dive, he kept a close eye on us all and pointed out ocean life that we would have otherwise missed. He took his role as dive master seriously and it was very much appreciated as it put us all at ease and allowed us to enjoy each dive to its fullest. It is also worth noting that his navigational skills under water are top notch as after every dive we would come right back to the mooring line. When asked on the first night of our trip what we hoped to do, learning to sail was near the top of the list. He took time to explain the basics and the ways in which the wind affects the sails and how one must adjust accordingly. Much to our delight, we were given an opportunity to raise and lower the sails a time or two. His patience and sincere passion for showing us all things both under and above the sea made for a remarkable trip. The chef surpassed any and all expectations of meal preparation, presentation and flavor. Our family was able to try new foods and experience comfort food in new and exciting ways thanks to her expertise. She was very flexible with us on meals and even went off her prepared meal plan one night to try her hand at making cauliflower wings for us. Our youngest daughter loves to cook/bake and she was such a sweetheart allowing her to help in the kitchen. When we had oranges for a snack one day our daughter mentioned how she’d love to try to make chocolate covered orange peels when we got home. Moments later and much to our surprise and our daughter’s utmost joy, She had a recipe pulled up and the girls were making them to serve with ice cream for dessert that evening. She was an amazing guide of our snorkeling adventures and for our on shore excursions - from hiking up the hills of Salt Island, walking on the beaches of Cooper Island, touring the Baths of Virgin Gorda, and exploring the Bubbly Pool - her enthusiasm and sense of adventure created memories that will last a lifetime. Both Captain & Chef are such a sweet and warm hearted couple who have contagious smiles and evident passions for living their best lives. Our trip was made complete by having them as our crew. Together they work seamlessly and make for a first-class experience. The boat was kept immaculate 24/7. It is easy to see that both the Captain & Chef treat the boat as if it were their own. Impressively, they went about and kept the boat neat and tidy without us noticing it. While we were eating our breakfast, or out enjoying the morning sun on paddle boards, kayaks or on the deck of the boat, our beds were being made, showers and bathrooms cleaned, and towels were replaced. When we would wake up in the morning the boat was as spotless as the first day we boarded. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to say THANK YOU to the yacht & crew for sharing with us the best vacation we could have ever dreamed of! We look forward to hopefully joining them both again soon for another trip around the (Leeward) islands.
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience and we know many more “Better Days” to come. The food was amazing, the guided tours made the experience so much greater, our dream of sailing and being in the beautiful Caribbean Islands fulfilled. Our family is very appreciated to your wonderful service, kindness, and training to sail. See you soon. Enjoy the charters until we are back.
We had a fantastic week vacationing on Better Days was awesome...considerate, thoughtful, and fun. We snorkeled, hiked, paddle boarded, kayaked, went scuba diving, sight seeing, sailed and wakeboarded. The chef cooked us amazing meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The chef's food was delicious. The crew made this one of our best family vacations. We can’t wait to come back
Every moment on this trip was exciting. The views of the BVI were spectacular and breathtaking and we never once felt seasick. This was a dream come true and would recommend it to anyone. We tell all our friends about this trip and can't stop talking about it. On a scale of 1-10, we'd give this trip a solid 10. Our captain and chef were incredible as well, and we left feeling like old friends.
