After years of bareboat chartering; This crew and yacht has converted us! Knowing the anchorages, snorkelling spots and finest dining (right on board!) has made us understand chartering done right. Thank you for giving us a fabulous week– you rock!! Come visit us in New England when it is warm! Absolutely fabulous week in paradise – a little piece of heaven – thank you so much!!
We didn’t just survive, we thrived! What an amazing week – from activities to amazing cuisine to delish drinks – we loved it all! Thank you to this crew for giving us such an incredible week! ***** rating and we wish we could stay!
Thank you for a wonderful week of adventure. If we could take the chef home with us to cook for us we would. All our meals were wonderful, breakfast, lunch & dinner! Great captain & cool as a cucumber when the dingy stopped running and we had to row back to the boat. He was a great participant in the What Do You Meme game! The crew was very flexible with our itinerary and had great suggestions. We tried to get them to let us stay on as part of the crew but unfortunately that would have required them to cancel the rest of their charters! We would definitely book another charter on Slivochka
We are three reasonably well traveled couples who just finished a most extraordinary and delightful vacation, sailing with Slivochka through the British Virgin Islands. This week long cruise on the yacht Slivochka far exceeded our expectations making it one of our best vacations ever. The three most important factors in chartering a full-service yacht are the crew, the boat, and the itinerary. Beginning with the crew, they were outstanding. Prior to our arrival they had telephoned to discuss our plans. Upon arrival they warmly welcomed us on board Slivochka with cocktails and snacks. They were both so friendly and hospitable that by the end of our cruise they were a part of our family. The captain was an extremely competent and knowledgeable captain, always finding sheltered anchorages for us to swim and snorkel. He also made all the arrangements for any shore excursions that we enjoyed. For anything that we wanted we simply had to ask the captain. The meals were exquisite. She is a fantastic cook and each day’s offerings included fresh produce and salads, deliciously prepared grilled fish or meat and even some imaginatively created themed dinners. A special memory was when they joined us on Anegada for a lobster dinner in an outdoor restaurant under the full moon. They were such accommodating and congenial traveling companions who took such excellent care of us that we were sad to bid them farewell. The second consideration was the yacht Slivochka. This is a 59-foot sailing catamaran with extremely comfortable lodging for the guests. Each air-conditioned guest cabin included a walk around queen-size bed, and in-suite head and very adequate storage space. The main deck area was spacious with indoor and outdoor dining areas, and there was a comfortable reclining area next to the bridge. On board were kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment and fishing gear for our use. The yacht was spotless and very well maintained. We had planned the itinerary with the crew. This included stops at Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and back to St. Thomas. In addition, we had many side excursions for snorkeling and exploring the beautiful British Virgin Islands.
We have charted several boats in the past in the Virgin Islands but they all pale in comparison to sailing on Slivochka. We give them our highest recommendations and hope they will be our crew for any future excursions
We just returned from an amazing week long private charter in the BVIs on the Slivochka with a great crew. It was one of my favorite vacations ever and first ever chartered yacht experience. The captain worked with us in the planning stages to find out exactly what our interests were and charted the perfect itinerary for our week. He found the most awesome places to show us the amazing beauty of the BVIs. He gave us options throughout the trip and accommodated everything our group wanted to see and do. He guided us on snorkel and hike excursions and was a wonderful host. The chef was equally knowledgeable and also made suggestions along the way of things to see and do. She also joined us snorkeling, but happens to be a trained dive master. She was the most gracious host, and made our week extremely comfortable. However, her gourmet cuisine was something we looked forward to each day. Her skills as a chef allowed us to dine as if we were at a 5 Star restaurant. She also consulted with us before the trip about our food preferences, and her menu for the week exceeded our expectations. I frankly don’t know how she was able to prepare what she did on board because each meal was simply amazing. She does so much behind the scenes that I don’t know when she slept. Together, they are the perfect team and made our week at sea the most memorable and outstanding vacation, that I will be booking our next charter with them. Thank you to this crew for all that you did for us. We loved getting to know you and being on board Slivochka. "
We had planned to do this unusual vacation for 5-7 years and we selected the best crew and catamaran, our children loved you guys.You shared so many of your stories about your lives and interacted with us all of the time. It was great to have you do this and make us feel so at home! We felt that you are an extended part of our family. We were comfortable and at home all the time! Captain your great sense of humor – you challenged the kids and I to competitions, nice – it wasn’t a job it was something that you liked to do. You are very talented at what you do. You shared with us various tasks and gave us all mini lessons on sailing! Each and every meal was far superior to what we have imagined it to be, can we take the chef home with us? Please keep in touch.
We had an amazing time! The boat was very well appointed and perfectly accommodated our group. The crew were incredible. They were knowledgeable, interesting, professional and just fun to be around. She is an amazing chef and all of her food was delicious. We were all baffled by how she cooked such gourmet meals in such a small space. The captain did an excellent job leading our dives and providing a fun and safe environment for all. This really is an incredible vacation for anyone. It is so relaxing, rejuvenating and a genuine break for day to day life. The meals were so delicious that one of the kids wanted to propose to The chef! The food was perfect. The chef did an amazing job working around the needs of someone with a nut allergy and a pescatarian. The meals were interested and beautifully presented. She was very mindful of our preference sheet. The yacht was beautiful. It was clean, well-maintained and well appointed. They provided toiletries were high end and very much appreciated. Everyone loved the Sun Bum sunscreen and it was soo nice not to bring all that along. The cabins were comfortable and the AC was great. We loved sitting on the upper deck on our sails. It would have been a bit nicer if there was a little more shade up there but it was not a issues. It was nicely situated next to the captain and it provided a nice opportunity to talk with the crew while crossing. There were plenty of other shaded options on the boat. We loved the coffee machine, snacks and fruit that were always out and available. It was also super helpful to have the "lost & found" basket and the sunglasses basket. Great idea! The games and books were also a nice touch. Our diving was a highlight for our family. We did two dives that were very fun. The crew worked seamlessly to get the equipment out, get us oriented and prepared for the dive. The captain did a great job reviewing skills (especially for our kids), the dive plan and signals before were dove. We loved both the Indians Dive and the octopus wreck dive. The pace was a perfect balance of relaxing and active. We loved swimming, snorkeling, diving, reading, paddle boarding, playing games & hanging out. The cruising gave us the perfect amount of downtime between all the fun.
On a beautiful sunny day in late-January 2020, six friends boarded our yacht in St Thomas to sail around the British Virgin Islands for a week. A bucket-list item for some of us, we could not have been more excited ... and we were not disappointed! Free Ingwe is more spacious than you might imagine. Each couple had their own bedroom with Queen-size bed and private bathroom with shower. On deck, there is plenty of room to spread out ... grab a cozy corner to read, sit at the back table to play cards, or take a position upfront to watch the world go by. Life in the BVI is very casual, which could not be more suitable if you are looking for a laid-back, stress-free getaway. I could not be happier about our week and I would recommend this adventure to everyone looking for a relaxing holiday filled with beauty, lots of water activities, great food, and a lot of laughs! The Captains knowledge of the islands was imparted throughout the trip as we moored at our various locations, explored the sites, snorkeled, and spotted delightful sea and land creatures. The food we ate onboard served on the outdoor deck, was delicious, especially paired with a cocktail or two. We can not wait to return!!
