We just took an incredible family trip to St Thomas and St John and chartered on G2. The boat accommodations were wonderful for a family of 5 (adults). The crew were such a blessing- serving us with amazing home cooked meals, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and hiking. They took us to see the beautiful yet secluded bays on the islands. They were a joy to be around for our 5 day vacation. We can't wait to go back soon!
From the moment we were welcomed us on board G2 with painkillers and a scrumptious platter of snacks and fruit we felt pampered, and we knew they were committed to us having a fabulous time with them out on the water. First off, a few words about the food. To say it is restaurant quality does not do the chef’s culinary delights justice, since there are many mediocre restaurants in the world. Each of the wonderful meals we were served were truly exceptional. The stuffed mushroom appetizers, crepes with three fillings, marinated steak salad with home-made tostones, and chicken roti were all big favorites with our family. The chef thoughtfully reached out to us before the trip and asked us for our meal preferences — and she happily accommodated the requests we made. We loved the food so much we asked her if we could take photos of her recipe book before leaving. G2 is a great boat. With five cabins and three different gathering or lounging places (including a cool rooftop great for sunsets) it feels spacious, even with 8 or 10 people onboard. The boat sails beautifully and fast for a boat of this size. It was especially relaxing to sail downwind with just the large “gennaker” sail (kind of like a spinnaker). The boat is well equipped, with a great sound system you can connect your phone to, along with fishing rods and water toys like paddleboards and floating mats. Our boys had tremendous fun being pulled around on the paddleboards with the dinghy and surfing in the wake wave. The captain is a terrific and fun captain. He definitely places everyone’s safety first, but making sure everyone has fun is a close second. He clearly has a lot of sailing expertise, which we found he was happy to share with us. The crew were both eager to share their love and knowledge of the islands with us, from pointing us at great places to snorkel to telling us the background of some of the places we saw. In the pandemic era we are currently in it’s worth pointing out that Karl, Nikki and the management company have gone to great lengths to keep guests healthy and safe. The boat was immaculately clean, and they keep onboard a stock of disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks (for going ashore). Given the events of the past few months our family definitely needed a great, relaxing vacation, and the crew delivered in fine style. We would not hesitate to highly recommend them and G2 to anyone looking for a fantastic time on the water.
In a word, our trip was just Fantastic! One of the best vacations we've had as a family. We saw all the highlights of BVI. The boat was really clean, the rooms were spacious, and it had everything you'd want including the scuba. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to use all the toys more often. The crew was the best. Very friendly, very helpful, and very professional. The chef is a great cook and she exceeded all of our expectations (eggs Benedict!). She even tried Mexican for the first time and it was great! The Captain is a real pro and his knowledge of the area was a real asset, especially to avoid the crowds and the swells (no one was sea sick!). He had great suggestions but never pressured us to do anything. Even his daily napkin folding lesson was optional! Glad we got to snorkel with the huge manta ray on the last day!
My wifes and my experience on the yacht exceeded our expectations. Not having done one of these before, we didn't know exactly what to expect, although some of our friends who had been on a similar charter, gave us some good insight. We had a fantastic time. I dont know if there are any changes I could suggest to make the experience any better. The crew could not have been better hosts. They guided us on what we should take advantage of, being so familiar with the area. They were extremely attentive to our needs and very accommodating when we adjusted plans that had been set. The captain worked very hard balancing each of our own preferences. The chef worked tirelessly to make sure we were fed and our accommodations were clean and fresh. The meals that she prepared were absolutely delicious. None left the table hungry. I would have zero hesitation in recommending this crew and this yacht to any of my friends. Thanks and hope to do this again real soon.
Thanks so much for taking us on a trip of a lifetime. We enjoyed going on a new adventure everyday. Your hospitality was beyond our expectations!!
This trip was the trip of a lifetime! I never dreamed how spectacular it would be. Your attention to detail and hospitality can't be beat. The food was amazing and the boat was impeccable! Thank you so much for celebrating our 40th birthdays. Thank you so much for an amazing week, it was beyond my expectations. Everyone should experience this at least once in their life!
What an amazing trip with 2 of the most gracious crew and now friends. From our initial greeting I knew that we would be well cared for. Seeing all the sights and gaining at least 10 pounds. What a gift you two are! The passion you two have for making sure that each person on the trip had a memorable experience will stay with us forever and ever. Thank you for such an amazing holiday with friends.
Our trip on Altesse was magical. Of course the islands provide the foundation, with natural beauty at every turn, but to top it off the yacht is lovely and immaculate, with open deck spaces and multiple, comfortable cushioned areas for conversation, reading, sunning and afternoon naps. The four staterooms are spacious, comfortable and private.
