Today is such a bittersweet day as we head home. The crew was so incredible, we all just fell in love with them. The food was phenomenal and Gracious?? Well she is in a class of her own, so gorgeous! Please thank the owner for allowing us to enjoy, for a short time, his slice of heaven and a great hand picked selection of great wine.
This trip has been a lifetime dream for me and you made it beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you!

Non-stop adventures, divine cuisine, stunning settings - It was from start to finish a magnificent experience. All the best - The Family
We have had and an incredible week aboard Tortuga. This was our third and hands down the best experience yet in the Virgin Islands thanks to the crew. They provided delicious meals, drinks, sunsets, hikes, diving excursions, and conversation. Words cannot express how grateful we are for this beautiful week! The captain certified our 12 year old to dive and showed us some incredible underwater wonders along the way. Between dives we had some lovely sails, fun tours on the sub wing, spike ball contests, snorkeled with turtles, hiked pretty view points, floated with drinks, paddle boarded and ate like kings. The chef catered to our preferences and prepared delicious meals. Some favorites included tuna poke bowl, shrimp ceviche, eggs benedict, beet hummus and key lime pie. She also makes a delicious margarita! The crew also made it possible for us to meet up with friends several times along the way. We met several other families at Lime Out and anchored along the corner for the kids to mix it up with some water sports and the adults to enjoy sundown. They made it possible for us to meet up with other for beach games, cocktails on each other boats and dinner at Lavango. We enjoyed every minute with these beautiful people and this beautiful place!
What a great Captain! He was engaged in every aspect of the boat not just driving from spot to spot. And the chef was a great chef and wonderful personality. All of her meals were outstanding in flavor, and the presentation was on point. You will never go hungry with her around. Indy was great as well. We were her first charter, and she handled everything like she had been in the field for months. Mare Blu was a very nice motor cat. There was plenty of room on the boat for a party of 6-8. The front of the boat did not have a net which made for a lot more room. All of the chaises and cushions were very soft. The beds were very comfortable with very soft sheets which is very important to us. Our itinerary worked our really well. After breakfast the crew would start the day laying out the map figuring our next stop. We were a little worried that we would not be able to get off the boat much because of the pandemic, but this is not the case. There are several places to get off have a walk, drink, or bite to eat. There were plenty of activities to enjoy on the boat. Our son enjoyed the BOB the most. You have about eight different things to choose from, which is more than enough.
You two made our trip so special. We went to the most unique places and saw amazing wildlife and ate the BEST food we have ever had. ❤️ We wouldn’t have been able to see the sights we saw without your knowledge of the various islands!! Thank you soooo much for a great trip.
We had an amazing vacation aboard. The boat is clean, newly renovated and absolutely beautiful sailing along the water. We had an amazing captain. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of sailing. We learned a lot and it was so great that he was willing and interested to teach us about sailing and he is a lot of fun! The chef was amazing. I still dream about her incredible meals. From her special cocktails at sunset to her pulled pork that she was making for days, I had some of the best meals of my life. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was absolutely beautiful in presentation and had incredible flavors. She also makes sure that she knows the likes and dislikes of everyone on the boat so that she can ensure that everyone has a great meal every time. This was our second boat vacation and again we loved every minute of our trip!...For me, I say without hesitation that this was the greatest vacation of all time. It actually felt more like two trips: an exotic adventure crossed with a five star food and wine excursion. ...The Boat so much larger than expected. The rooms were two to three times larger than the beds. The showers were large even though we chose to use the outdoor showers after exiting the water. We found that the community areas were perfect to hold all nine of us and there were also many places to hide and get some alone time when needed.
The captain had an amazing knack of anticipating our needs. When we wanted adventure, he gave us adventure. When we wanted to get off the boat, get off the boat, just hang and relax, he always was one step ahead of us. He was so accommodating and could easily transition between this first class butler/attendant, adventure surfer/guide, DJ, bartender, and all while safely navigating the BVIs! The chef spoiled us with super creative, beautifully plated dishes. I literally could not wait to see what she prepared next from breakfast to lunch followed by a post activity snack. Our kids still ask about the boat and crew. They were amazing teachers about the craft of sailing. Safety came first; they made it fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents. They took all of our (often disparate) plans and wishes into consideration and did so openly and graciously. Christmas 2020 was among the best for us (maybe the single best?) and the crew deserve credit and many thanks for that!dinner. ...Every meal had different proteins, varied ethnicities, fresh veggies, and amazing flavors. She constantly surprised and taught me so much about new combinations and techniques. Long story short, for some amazing food, adventure, relaxation and safe non sun-burnt fun in the islands. We cannot wait to sail with them again.
Thank you for such an AMAZING week! We started as passengers and as the week went on, we became more like family. Your hospitality and kindness were truly appreciated. Dani - you have mad skills in the kitchen! We loved your creative and tasty dishes - and your delicious cocktails! WELL DONE! Thank you, Ryan, for your great commentary throughout the week and always leading us in our off boat excursions. We felt so safe knowing you were in charge! Please look us up if you ever want to visit Minnesota!

Ocelot sailing experience is truly amazing. Between our 3 couples, we have traveled the world and this week with this yacht and crew is our favorite travel experience. The moment you board the boat, they make you feel at home. The boat has an abundance of lounging areas that allowed all of us to find places to relax and enjoy sailing. The captain is a knowledgeable captain, taking us to islands, snorkeling spots, and luxurious bays each day. Last but certainly not least, the chef’s cooking is delicious! She has a sweet way of catering to each guest and for us she was truly the gem of the Caribbean. This is the trip you can’t miss. Can’t wait to sail again.
Super fun and relaxing vacation with Abundance Yacht Charters sailing around the US Virgin Islands! Stayed in a different bay each night with days filled with sun, beaches, hikes, snorkeling, paddle boarding, delicious on board food, and fantastic views!
Unfamiliar with this type of travel, I wasn’t sure what to expect and somewhat anxious but I was amazed at the accommodations, activities, and hospitality on the boat. Whether underway or on anchor, the 4-member crew was attentive to make sure all of Sur L’eau’s amenities were available for our pleasure. It was obvious they had planned ahead for every event but weren’t so rigid that they didn’t take advantage of entertainment they thought we would enjoy. Advanced planning was evidenced by live entertainment onboard for birthday and anniversary celebrations. It is this type of engagement with the guests and attention to the guest’s experience that sets this crew apart. Dining is always a big part of a vacation and I have to say the chef on this boat did a fantastic job. Each and every meal was well prepared. Lunch prepared with a tuna caught while traveling between the islands was greatly appreciated by the guests.Lastly, I would like to point out the size of the amenities in the staterooms. The bed, along with the shower, restroom and stowage were a very nice size, able to accommodate us very comfortably. All in all, I can’t think of a thing I would change about my trip or the way these guys manage the boat and the guest’s experience.
Thank you both for the most perfect vacation EVER! We seriously loved every second. We were so bummed when the trip got cancelled back in April due to covid, but this was so worth the wait! The cooking is incredible and it will be missed - your unbelievable birthday cake, pizza rolls, homemade bread, pasta carbonara, and all the rest. We loved the captain and his ukulele playing, snorkel tours, "scurfing" skills, and everything you did! We are also so happy-so many laughs!
The charter was great. Everything worked out like a charm. No issues or complaints whatsoever. We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. Wind when we wanted it. None when we didn’t. Sunny and balmy every day. We did just about everything one could do on a 1-week BVI cruise. The crew were an excellent choice for our group considering we had kids from ages 9-56 — they were highly enthusiastic and energetic and extremely professional...
We lucked out with the boat...Everything was effectively brand new due to their complete refit last year. The scuba equipment was top notch and literally had never been used. Cabin accommodations and all heads were contemporary, clean, and comfortable. Between the fore-deck, saloon, fly bridge, and “back patio”, there was ample room for 8 guests and all their stuff to spread out.
The captain is a phenomenal and enthusiastic dive instructor/master. We felt very comfortable with his skipper skills. He’s a fun and educational captain, sharing local knowledge, experience, and stories while keeping us safe on and in the water.
The chef is also a wonderful hostess. Every meal was perfectly tailored to our group’s tastes. Meals were delicious, healthy, satisfying, and beautifully presented. It’s a testament to her culinary skills that she could convince a 9-year old to devour fish poke or chicken coconut curry like they were lucky charms. She kept the boat spit-spot the entire time—a challenge with 4 adults and 4 kids. She did not skimp on anything and was ever ready to make another Painkiller, refill your water bottle, or pour another glass of wine.
In their precious few minutes of downtime, both the crew joined in our fun, be it snorkeling, scuba diving, kite boarding, sundowners, or just playing a hand of nertz or bananagrams.
We’ve done a lot of charters in the Caribbean and had been to the BVI on 3 other occasions. This was by far our best experience and would highly recommend Viramar for either novice or experienced sailors.
Recommended for: action-sports people, scuba divers, families, young charterers.
Highlights: diving the Chikuzen wreck. Jumping off the rock in Virgin Gorda. The last day on Cooper Island Beach Club.
$31,000 + expenses
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!
Wonderful week with three boisterous children. The chef managed to feed myself, a fussy eater, and a difficult child (well done). The captain was amazingly patient with all water sports, they had a full week. Every day something different. A great time had by all. Well done Lady Fiona and her crew.
Gypsy Princess is a fantastic boat! Every amenity and tastefully decorated. The captain is amazingly competent and in addition to making sure one had a great time he assured everyone was safe – on the boat, getting in and of the dinghy. I enjoyed just watching & learning. The chef provided terrific and varied meals, presented beautifully, and she is a delightful person. She is also a top notch 1st mate. All in all a beautiful trip in the gorgeous locale!
Pegasus IX is such a beautiful boat. All the comforts of home and then some.
My recent week aboard Maverick far exceeded my every expectation. I had high hopes for a unique adventure, however I never could have imagined the experience provided by Pat and his absolutely outstanding crew. Each exceeded any level of professional I have experienced. Our every need was anticipated in advance of our asking. Every request accommodate...and then some ! The food was some of the finest I have ever enjoyed. The chef is a joy. She made each hour of each day a memory to never forget. As for Pat, I could write pages of positive commentary. The captain is outstanding. His concern for the safety of the yacht and the passengers was always evident. His skills are reflective of someone far older. He insured that everyday was filled with an array of options for our choosing. Nothing was an imposition and every request granted with a smile and a pleasant attitude.
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.
To the crew of NAMASTE a beautiful ship and a great group. The captain for always answering my questions and for his knowledge. The crew for always having a smile and helping hand and also answering my questions. And the chef for her smile an each every wonderful meal!
We are wrapping up a wonderful journey, sailing with you and the warm and hospitable
Caribbean Sea. Our Captain has been blessed with good winds, our chef has seduced us with
her culinary musings. Our paths crossed for a few days, full of generosity, thoughtful attention, and care.Thank you again for the time shared and a time of gifts. God’s speed on your next journey - the truth and joy of life is in it. The journey, not the destination.
