The owners should rename this beautiful boat "GRATEFUL" since anyone who is lucky enough to be aboard will be eternally grateful for such a wonderful experience. Captain Andrew, Chef Michaela and First Mate Caroline exceeded any and all expectations for our once-in-a-lifetime vacation in the beautiful BVIs.
The crew is warm and welcoming, the meals we had were beyond delicious, and the boat itself is luxurious and comfortable. The memories we made on this trip will last a lifetime!
(Review is from crew’s previous yacht) We had an absolutely amazing time. We loved everything from snorkeling, diving and sailing. The service and the food were terrific. The service and the food were terrific. Thank you for taking such good care of us. We were delighted that you guys were our crew!
Our trip was centered around our grandkids ages 6, 8, 13 and 15 and they had the time of lives! Every detail was taken care of by the crew - they engaged the kids In activities, played games with them, prepared feasts with the kids and showed them a wonderful week in the BVI. The crew are incredibly smart, outgoing and take care of Twin Flame in unmatched skill. We can’t wait to sail with them again. The kids all cried when we left the crew and the boat - adults shed a few tears too. What a memorable time that will live on in our hearts forever, until the next time - keep your head up, Bro! 😂🥰
All we can say is "What a crew"! You are all amazing and were in perpetual motion and able to anticipate our every desire. The crew is absolutely five-star! The best thing is all of the crew's hidden talents that just may show up upon request. Love these guys. Thank you all for such an amazing experience! These memories we will hold onto for a lifetime.
Our trip was too short! We already miss the blue water, amazing scenery, gourmet food and good company. This trip was so special and we can’t wait to do it again.
It’s hard to put into words how amazing that trip was, but I will try. Here are some thoughts:
First off, the crew was amazing. The captain is great; a wealth of knowledge and experience, great sense of humor, patient (especially with the teenaged boys) and kind. I enjoyed talking with him and thought he took a real interest in our group, which was a bit diverse. He was extremely attentive to everyone on the boat, always asking if we needed anything, and even serving coffee. I didn’t expect that level of service from the captain, but the best thing about him was just talking with him. The deckhand, was a real pleasure. Everyone loved her, the adults and kids. She was fun to dive with and was awesome keeping the little and big kids happy on the water. Very patient and helpful at all times! Since she was always around on deck, I seemed to talk with her the most. I could just tell through our conversations that she is just a really nice, amazing person. A special shout out to the crew for putting up with little kids (8-9 yrs old), teenage boys, and my daughter’s boyfriend who I even find annoying! And, my brother-in-law and I could be just as childish as the kids sometimes too!
The boat was very nice. It was well-kept and clean. Sailing was a lot of fun and we enjoyed when the captain put up the sails and aloud us all to help with driving. I’m not sure we could ever do another boat after experiencing the Tranquility.
The weather was mostly awesome other than some clouds the first day and a bit rougher seas that day. However, it was mostly sunshine all week and very calm.
I thought the captain did a great job designing a route to allow for great diving, but also allow the non-divers get in the water and have fun. We also loved the bars we stopped at – Willy T, Saba Rock, Bitter End, Foxy’s Taboo, Foxy’s, Ivan’s, Soggy Dollar. We also went to the Baths. It feels like we went everywhere anyone would want to go, some places I haven’t even mentioned. I’m not sure what we could have missed.
o Seeing constant smiles on my youngest son’s face all week, as well as his two cousins of similar ages. It was a real joy seeing the 3 of them enjoy the water so much all week long.
o Spending quality time with my brother and sister in law all week that I don’t see that often. I would say the same for the time I spent with my college friend.
o Just sailing from anchorage to anchorage, enjoying the scenery, and mostly relaxing with my wife during those times. We also would find time alone in the morning with our coffee/tea before the rest of our group woke up. The mornings before breakfast when it was quiet was awesome.
o Multiple dives and snorkeling
o Foxy’s and Soggy Dollar
o Best painkiller goes either to Foxy’s Taboo or Andrea on the boat. All were good though and we tried them all! My brother-in-law tried to tell me Ivan’s was the best, but I couldn’t trust his judgement at that point in the day…
Everyone from my group loved the experience. The BVIs are more amazing than I really even thought. Sailing was even more fun than I thought. At the end of the day, the crew made the experience. I couldn’t imagine being stuck on a boat all week with a crew that had a different approach. Thanks so much!
We had a great week!. The boat is clean and comfortable, we enjoyed the outdoor lounge spaces and the convenience of electric heads, water maker and AC! Water toys were so much fun. The crew make a great team and are a pleasure to have as a crew. We enjoyed spending time together and learning about each other’s backgrounds. They picked great spots for scenic views, snorkeling and hiking! We even got to do some bird watching. We felt very comforted knowing we are in good hands under sails or on the anchor. The chef went above and beyond to accommodate our food and wine preferences. The meals were well planned and delicious! Stuffed French toast, empanadas and burgers were kid’s favorites, adults also enjoyed chicken curry and special egg rolls. Home-made desert with every dinner was an unexpected treat! It was a perfect start for 2022 and we hope to sail again soon!

We know it would be a fabulous trip, but the experience surpassed our already high expectations! Sara and Mike - you are an incredible team that created and environment so calm, so perfect, so peaceful, and so satisfying! The food was divine! Snorkeling was spectacular…and the sailing was ideal… full of big winds blowing just the right way! We appreciate how you anticipated every need and offered lots of options to ensure each of us had a spectacular vacation! Thank you so much Cynthia for sharing your beautiful boat and crew! Looking forward to our next adventure together!!
REVIEW FROM PREVIOUS YACHT: We cannot begin to thank you enough for an amazing trip. I am not ready to return to reality. But, knowing we can come back for another trip is comforting. It was a wonderful trip and wonderful to enjoy time with this wonderful crew!

The crew were great! I would definitely recommend them to anyone with kids. The food was awesome but I quickly realized I was over eating by mid-week. 😉 The boat was awesome! They added a rain screen around the back of the yacht this season and it made all the difference because it was rainy. As you said, the showers were short lived, but definitely enough to get things wet. The rain screen allowed us to stay dry on the back which was great. I noticed many other boats didn’t have one but I think it’s a must have.
(Review of crew’s previous yacht) Words fail. I cannot begin to say what this week has been for me; for us. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. From the moment we stepped on the boat, it was amazing. The food- incredible, creative, tasty, inventive. Chef- thank you for taking all of our crazy needs/wants and crafting meals that were superb! Captain- your patience, sense of humor, and attentiveness is beyond appreciated. We are grateful for every single minute of this week. Thank you!
Thank you for such an amazing experience. The crew really spoiled us this week! We felt so comfortable and relaxed. The crew is a great team
We cannot express in words how much fun we had this week traveling through the Exumas with you! Thank you so much for this fantastic week. We had the best spots and lots of good times on the boat. We cannot believe the week is already over. It was such a fabulous trip with wonderful food and great adventures. Thank you for making this adventure a memorable one!

Thanks for breaking in my sea legs. You are beautiful and lovely, but not as lovely as you are within. It is the crew that makes this vacation. Never change! We appreciate the patience and love you and everything you put into our hearts and bellies. Thank you for the memory of a lifetime.
We could not ask for a better vacation! A knowledgable captain and artist in the galley. You guys are super hosts. I am personally very grateful for the gift of your company and skills you have given to my family. I wish you all the success and happiness in the world!
The crew were fabulous. They exuded warmth and friendliness and made all of us feel most welcome onboard. We fell in love with them! We felt completely at ease with both crew members. It was readily apparent they knew what they were doing. Considering there were 10 guests and just two crew members, the service was outstanding. They worked tirelessly to insure we never lacked for anything. They were unfailingly pleasant, polite, friendly and helpful. The chef served so many delicious and varied meals (and oh, so much food) that our eyes popped – shortly before our stomachs! Everything was delicious. Barefeet Retreat had a large mat it put out behind the boat which the kids loved. The captain took them tubing on two occasions and they snorkeled throughout the trip. The noodles were most welcomed by the adults. Shaun and Hayden also used the paddleboard on a couple of occasions. Mary even rode the tube once. Our satisfaction was High, high, high. The catamaran was roomy enough for 10 and I can vouch for the ample size of our shower. Everything on board was quite comfortable.
Not sure how to even begin to review our 10 day trip with Capt Karl and Chef Nikki. The boat was immaculate and very well maintained. The bedrooms were spacious and the living area extremely comfy to lounge while sailing or just to hang out. There is enough room to lounge in the front, back or up top if you need space. Capt Karl is very knowledgeable of sailing and is willing to teach you along the way if you want to learn. He is also an amazing photographer and would take pictures of us on our hikes and around the boat. Chef Nikki, there are no words for her cooking. Every meal we had was as if we were eating in a fine dinning restaurant. At the end of our trip she even offered to provide some of our favorite dish receipts. Both Chef Nikki and Capt Karl have been in the area/profession for a long time and their knowledge of the area is amazing. Our group learned a lot about the area and sailing while on our trip. The next time we charter, we would go back with this crew in a heartbeat.
We are and will be forever thankful for this incredible journey through the waters of the exquisite USVI. You showed us more than we could have imagined from either land or water-absolutely stunning. Our family’s celebration of birthdays and precious time together will be in our hearts forever. Thank you for your amazing ability to make this trip the best. The meals you delivered are out of this world. Thank you for taking the time to select fresh, healthy and incredibly beautiful dishes for us. We always felt safe with the captain, who took us to incredible places. Best wishes to both of you!.
Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation - it was the best ever and I smile every time I think of the wonderful week. I loved being on Copper Penny and will definitely do it again. You both made the experience unforgettable and were such great hosts. I love some of the pictures you took and can't wait to see the others. I didn't take any but I know some of the other girls did. I'll keep in touch.
Aqua waters, white sand beaches, colorful fish, shining tarpon, struggling coral, laid-back beach bars, floaty nation, fruity cocktails, light breezes, mighty liars’ dice, seriously competitive charades, lazy afternoon naps, fantastically yummy meals, beautiful boat and superbly capable captain.Thank you to this crew for everything! We are so luck to have landed with you and look forward to another trip with you both. Combining superb seamanship with gracious hospitality isn’t trivial….and you two make it look effortless. We look forward to our next adventure together!
We had an amazing trip! I will say that it was very stressful in worrying about testing positive prior to the trip but fortunately, we all made it and had a blast! The crew were amazing hosts! A great captain who had a calm demeanor even when the belt on our generator blew up and we were without power for 2 hours. He found a spare belt and had the boat up and running quickly without any hiccup in the schedule. The chef’s cooking was so good that even our picky eater who would prefer chicken fingers over a fancy meal, loved everything she had to offer. It was also pretty cool that she grew up in St. Johns and knew all of the best places to go. One of the coolest things we did was see a band playing on the back of one of the catamarans. We pulled up some floaty’ s and a cooler of drinks and had a great time. After the band was done playing, we visited Pizza Pi IV which was a floating pizza “food boat???” It’s going to be tough to top this trip!
I personally wanted to say thank you again for the vacation like no other. I had “firsts” in two areas of life. One new thing a year is my life goal… so yay!! From all of us thank you. We could not have asked for a better crew. Outstanding!! Let us know if you ever need a referral. Fair Seas to you always
We have absolutely loved our experience aboard Sea Boss with you both. You embraced our family with your warm spirits and created the most relaxing and fun vacation we could possibly imagine. Your sincere intention to create a memorable and enjoyable experience for all was evident in every detail. From the thoughtfully designed itinerary to the exquisite meals - taking into account all of our eating quirks! We loved and noticed every wonderful aspect of the trip; beautiful table settings, on demand bumps on the tube, meals to die for filled with healthy and fresh ingredients. (how is that even possible on a boat?), tasty cocktails, perfect land excursions to stretch our legs, captains corner, patient time hanging out with our remora fish, kindly helping our kids (and us) learn about boat life and paddle board rescues!! At the end of the day life is about the connections we make and the experience we have together. You have given us the gift of the chance to form memories and family bonding that will last a lifetime. We are so grateful.
We have just enjoyed the most incredible week with Dragonfly and her crew. We have been blown away with the 5 star service and will remember this trip forever. The food is just incredible, I will miss it the most! We have been so well looked after and completely spoiled. Thank you so much!
We all want to thank you for this amazing week. The islands are indeed one of the most beautiful places on earth. Beautiful islands, perfect beaches and many things to do. It’s a perfect combination of relaxing and being active with watersports and amazing hikes. Your catamaran is perfect, the best we saw during the whole trip. You can comfortably sit on the front sofa area, in the shady cockpit, on the special champagne deck, or on the flybridge with the breeze. Also the rooms are big and comfortable and way beyond our expectations. TOP NOTCH! Like always it is the people that really make the difference. Your service, your cooking and your good mood is beyond exceptional. But really special is your personal touch: you try to find out what we want and fulfil our wishes even the ones we didn’t say out loud. And you for that! You are also an inspiring couple. The life choice you both made, the joy you have in the ‘small things in life’, the body language between you two when you are sailing, the tender care that the captain takes of the boat….we could go on. Thank you so much! We will remember you and this experience forever and this certainly not be our last visit to your paradise!
Spending a week with you on Location was better than imagined. Both our families were able to see the Exumas in a way many can't, eat world class food and enjoy the time together that is hard to find nowadays. The catamaran was ideal in every way and the tender made little trips off the boat fantastic. We even caught a grouper! The boat was ideal, but adding you two to the trip makes it worth doing again! Thanks for everything you did!
