GREAT ADVENTURE is a modern, bright, and spacious crewed catamaran available for luxury charter vacations in the Caribbean and based in the Virgin Islands.
GREAT ADVENTURE is a Lagoon 450 and is fully air-conditioned. The spacious cockpit comfortably sits all guests around an ample table to make dining al fresco a pleasure. There is a ventilation hatch on the bridge deck, that funnels a cooling breeze into the cockpit area. 3 Queen ensuite cabins provide spacious accommodation for all.
For such a spacious yacht, she is surprisingly nimble, and the gulping-shaped bridge deck makes her very comfortable underway, no slapping or slamming aboard this beauty, and you can hop between islands in under an hour, or choose to spend longer under sail. The choice is entirely yours during your cruise through the Virgin Islands.

CAPTAIN SEAN & CHEF/MATE LIZ
Sean began his sailing career in Sausalito, California where he bought a boat to live aboard. He was quickly in awe of the lifestyle and realized that he wanted to be in the boating industry. Sean went to the east coast to be a deckhand on the tall ship S/V Liberty Clipper doing week-long charters for up to 24 guests in the Bahamas. After completing that journey, his next position was as a deckhand on George Patton’s sailing yacht, S/V When and If, where he sailed from Quebec to the Florida Keys. He was quickly offered a position as Captain due to his variety of skills, attentive care for the ship and crew, as well as his captivating presence with guests. While Sean remains the relief captain for When and If, he has continued his sailing career joining M/Y OLOH transiting through the ICW and east coast as well as joining the educational vessels S/V Adventuress and SSV Geronimo. Sean enjoys every experience he has on the water watching a sunset and spotting marine and wildlife. He is drawn to continue his career in the USVI and BVI for the unique diving excursions and the opportunity to sail in one of the world’s most beautiful locations.
Elizabeth (Liz) grew up as a competitive swimmer inspired by the healing benefits of water. She moved to Florida to be by the ocean and to be near her grandmother who passed away shortly thereafter from Alzheimer’s disease. Elizabeth enriched her life in Florida by achieving success for eight years in a career helping people with cognitive impairments as well as providing guidance to caregivers. Her compassion led her down a path as an Eldercare Advocate to help people in the hospital to ensure a safe discharge with a focus on their quality of life. Elizabeth developed a weekly yoga and meditation program to help relieve stress and enhance memory stimulation for both patients and their caregivers. She also led multiple yoga classes in the community that focused on holding a calm and safe space for beginner to advanced practitioners. She is on the next chapter of her career and wishes to connect with people through sailing to incorporate similar healing benefits that yoga embodies. Not only does Elizabeth want to show people fun and memorable experience, but she will also create nourishing meals to satisfy your taste buds and enhance your vacation.

The crew were amazing! My family and I were first timers and we are now counting down the days to our next trip! We adore them. Anything you want they will deliver on!! Can’t say enough about the trip, the boat and the crew!!
All of the food was AMAZING! Especially the pastry dishes. The crew was professional and courteous and always there to help. I loved the big yellow duck :) The shrimp and the salmon were me fave! - but truly all of the food was great. Must see list - the baths and soggy dollar. Thanks for an amazing experience. The crew were excellent hosts! They never sit down in tending to their guests, I don't see how they do it. Food was amazing!
We had a blast! My grandkids LOVED it. They want to go again in a couple of years! The crew were great with kids with all the water sports. The food was amazing! The chef was awesome! The boat is beautiful. Thanks for making this happen for me! Another check off my bucket list!
This was truly life changing experience! Thank you! Chef you are an unbelievable cook and anticipates your clients every need. Captain you are safe and creative captain whose small choices made all the difference in the trip. Thank you both and you know you always have family in SC~
This was the perfect vacation. When we booked, we just randomly selected Great Adventure, how lucky were we??? The crew were the best crew we could have asked for!! They treated us like royalty. We felt so lucky each day. Diving with the captain was exciting, but at the same time so peaceful. He has a calming way about him and we felt safe with him. Each site he took us to was different, but equally beautiful. The food, well what can I say, the chef was a great cook. Each meal was beautifully presented and delicious. She also finished them off with a yummy dessert. I'm still wondering how she did it all on our boat. I wish I could let you know which one was better than the other but all the food was wonderful! Both of them were so knowledgeable about, our surroundings and environments, sailing, diving, they were so informative. We really can't thank you enough. You are so kind and well caring. We will definitely do this again because of your wonderful hospitality. If you move to a bigger boat we will follow! We will have to visit you in Newport! Captain thanks for entertaining Twin, that's a job in itself. Thank you Thank you Thank you. We hate to leave.
We just got home last night from our trip on the "Great Adventure" We had a fabulous trip. The boat is really set up physically for "hosting" 3 couples easily. There are multiple places to "hang out" when we wanted to be together or when we wanted more private time. More important than the boat however was that our crew are a really nice couple. They may be young (in fact they are younger than our kids) but they are energetic and as focused on service, safety and making sure we all had a great trip as any crew could possibly be and all six of us could only give them an unqualified 100% A+ rating. .They really were fabulous and genuinely nice couple. Just wanted you to give you this input since they are relatively new to the charter business. Thank you also for your help setting up our charter. Everything worked like clockwork. We will be back.
Thank you so much for four fabulous days on the yacht. Our only regret was not booking longer!! Enjoyed the amazing snorkelling and water sports! Especially loved Bobby's scuba initiation. You are a lovely couple, very engaging and taking care of all our needs! Food was amazing and so were the you tube videos.
Thank you for the most amazing vacation. The food and destinations were incredible, but truly the best part was the friendships we developed with yall along the way. Nothing could beat The Captain’s stories with chefs frequent interruptions. You guys are amazing. We had the best time and look forward to doing it again very soon. Best Wishes and happy voyages
Thank you for a wonderful trip! You have been professional and friendly throughout the whole week – particularly with a large group of women which can be challenging.
Thank you so much for everything over the past week-the food was absolutely fantastic thank you for being so accommodating to all the groups intolerances (aka mine) and mike your margaritas are fantastic! ~ We couldn’t have asked for a better family trip- it is truly a trip we will always remember! Thank you!
