Our Amazing BVI Adventure was truly a “once in a lifetime” experience! The boat was perfect and offered a wide range of water sports to accommodate all eight of us and allowed us to adapt to the great diversity of our needs, as we motored and sailed through the BVI’s. With all the creature comforts and activities offered, the highlight of the trip was the gracious and professional crew! One of our trip goals was diving in the BVI’s. The Captain, certified dive master, crafted excellent dive plans that gave us the opportunity to fully experience the variety of underwater life all around the reefs. He was knowledgeable of reef life and was able to point out the many different highlights of the various creatures, plus the unique features of each dive site, like sunken ships, geographic anomalies, and current dive conditions. For those on the boat that were not divers, The captain created opportunities to snorkel, paddle board, or use the water scooters. Another highlight of the trip was the phenomenal chef. Everyone savored the many delicious meals. The meals and snacks could not be resisted. The crew made the experience. Always focused on safety and making each experience unique and memorable. This experience can only be described as FANTASTIC!!! What a wonderful time. You two were great. Enjoyed very much. Thank you so much.
