Our charter was one of the best vacations we have ever done. The personal touches by the crew made it a great event. The marine knowledge made a big difference during snorkeling-every time was very unique. The chef was great and put special touches on each meal. The captain was very focused on safety, but he also was so much fun and made great drinks. We can't wait to charter again!
Just got back from an AMAZING week on Port to Vino! The boat is incredible and gorgeous, and Captain Jeff and Chef Caitlin are absolutely wonderful!! We sailed, snorkeled, dived, hiked and bar hopped our way around the entire BVI -- even got to swim with dolphins -- all while enjoying Caitlin's amazingly delicious, fresh from scratch meals and Jeff's specialty cocktails. Port to Vino was spacious, comfortable, incredibly well appointed and tastefully decorated. Jeff and Caitlin even arranged a spectacular tour with BVI Adventure Tours for us when they found out we had a gap day before flying out. I cannot possibly recommend it more highly. A truly unforgettable experience!!
The crew were great, very professional and lots of fun. They interacted perfectly with our group. The boat is amazing and perfectly maintained. Food was awesome and made from scratch daily. We had several restaurant owners on board; all were impressed!
What a privilege to spend a week on Port To Vino. We are grateful and loved the BVI. The trip was among our best food experiences ever with no better place to do it.
Ann and I just got back from a week aboard Port To Vino...The crew are head and shoulders superior to any crew that we have ever had. The boat is beautiful and we really enjoyed the added features of the blue underwater lights for the dinghy and really cool lounging bolsters for the trampoline. The chef has a remarkable ability to create complex and subtle flavors which add several layers of depth to her meals. Every happy hour Captain served us a different cocktail creation, all of which were perfectly light and refreshing, and none of which I (a semi-professional drinker) have ever tasted (the setting...at anchor lounging on the new bolsters under the new fore deck shades...certainly doesn't hurt the taste of the cocktails!) . The crew could draw a map of the details of every dive spot from memory and they have a deep fund of knowledge about of sea life and fish behavior. Every morning they had made the beds, cleaned the bathrooms and done some sort of magic folding the towels into animal shapes...before we had finished breakfast...we called her the housekeeping Ninja. All that on top of having delightful personalities! The crew are real pros. They make the experience aboard Port To Vino is something very special.
The personal touches by the crew made it great. Our charter aboard Port To Vino was one of the best vacations we have ever done. The personal touches by the crew made it a great event. Their marine knowledge, especially, made a big difference whilst snorkeling - every session was very unique. A great chef who put special touches on each meal. An extremely competent captain,very focused on safety, but he also made some fun drinks! We can’t wait to charter again on Port To Vino.
The boat and crew were exactly as described. Very personable with both the adults and kids. Provided amazing food, and a really delightful atmosphere to sail in and enjoy the BVI. The trip completely lived up to our high expectations.
Our getaway aboard Port To Vino was one of the most memorable family vacations we have ever taken! The crew are smart and friendly and know the islands inside and out. Just as we had hoped, most of our days were spent snorkeling, sometimes guided by one of the crew , who know the waters very well. And (again) just as we had hoped, evenings were spent stargazing, playing games and planning the next day’s activities. Between activities, homemade meals and snacks were five star. We are foodies, but we never thought the food would be so unique and delicious! We hope to be lucky enough to make more memories on Port To Vino.
