Your Crew

CAPTAIN ISH AND CHEF/MATE TBA

As a child, Ish anxiously awaited the arrival of summer when he would head to his grandparents’ cottage in Ontario. The waters of Lake Huron became the playground where Ish learned to sail his grandparents’ 16’ Wayfarer. On any given sunny summer day, he could be found out on the lake struggling to untangle himself from a rat’s nest of lines or being caught by a sneaky gust that caused him to capsize. Those first few years with the Wayfarer served as a foundation for a great passion for sailing. After graduating from high school, Ish attended Prescott College in Arizona where he fed an insatiable appetite for the outdoors. College orientation, a 3-week backpacking trip through a canyon in Arizona, opened a whole new world of outdoor pursuits and possibilities. Over the next 4 years, he filled his spare time with surfing, backcountry skiing, white water rafting, rock climbing, stargazing, campfire-ing, and howling at the moon! A desire to sail in saltwater persisted, even in the desert. Ish satisfied his saltwater cravings with a job living and working aboard sailboats in the British Virgin Islands. Over 6 summers with Sail Caribbean, a summer camp for teens, Ish served as captain, fleet captain, and program director. He was able to also fulfill his aspiration to work on a commercial salmon fishing boat in Alaska before finally realizing his lifelong dream of leading unforgettable charters for guests in the Virgin Islands. His time in the VI has given him outstanding knowledge of the local culture and natural treasures to be enjoyed here. He has a deep love for these beautiful islands and the surrounding waters and is excited to share this passion with each and every guest who comes aboard.

Spectacular Time

Thank you so much for a spectacular time! Although I arrived home to a full house and Thanksgiving preparations, how could we not miss the warm Caribbean and pampering we received on the Southern Comfort! From the time we arrived on the boat until the time we had to leave, you made our trip exceed any expectations that I conjured up in my mind. The catamaran was very well maintained and beautiful. A great vessel for respite from the daily grind.
The sailing, snorkeling, hiking, diving and swimming were just the adventures that our group were looking for. The crew were great Captains, cruise directors, chefs and staff. We were all amazed at the spectacular service provided to 8 people by just the 2 of you. The food was so delicious and diverse. Quite a feat in a small kitchen! You are quite an amazing chef. I’m still waiting for the cookbook! Everything you served was fresh, flavorful and visually delightful! A foodie paradise, if you will. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone. You both made our first sailing experience an extraordinary adventure!Thank you for everything and please keep in touch. You are wonderful people who we really enjoy and admire. Take care and have a healthy happy holiday season.

5 Star Hotel On The Water

Thank you! Food and service was top notch - a 5 star hotel on the water. More importantly though was your genuine friendship and graciousness. Your endless work ethic and making sure every need is met always is only overmatched by your loving, genuine personal touch. We had a wonderful time but we are sad to leave such special new friends! Come to Colorado - you are home. Dive Master, thank you!!! Some of the best diving ever! We will never forget! Really perfect diving!

Heartbroken To Leave

I'm not much of a writer, but I'll try anyway. This has been such a wonderful week. I'm a bit heartbroken that it's ending and that this is the last day we will ever spend on this boat. The ocean has become our "happy place", but just how happy a place that truly is depends entirely on who we spend the days with. Chris & I have truly cherished getting to know you two. Your kindness and joyful attitude have made this a very special week indeed. I could go on about the wonderful food and the SCUBA and the weather. But the truth is that our favorite part was the two of you. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, favorable winds, and good sailing. I hope our paths cross again someday!

5 Out Of 5 Stars

The whole family considered this to be a once in a lifetime kind of vacation and I have to say that it was one of the fastest seven day vacations that I have ever experienced. The crew and the Southern Comfort catamaran did not disappoint. They made us feel comfortable from our first planning conversation to our first step onto the Southern Comfort and each and every day until it was time to sadly say goodbye. The food - holy moly can the chef cook! We ate three delicious (and kind of healthy!) meals a day and each and everyone of them was outstanding. What a surprise it was to get that kind of cooking out and about the USVIs! The sailing - the captain is a terrific captain and made us feel safe and sound on both the SoCo and it’s dingie! He was also very patient with our questions and responded very deliberately yet in ways that were easy to understand. We really felt that the crew were a great combination and complimented one another very well. We would give them 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend them to future vacationers.

Better Than We Imagined

What an amazing week! This trip was more than we ever imagined - mainly thanks to the two of you taking such good care of us. You made sure we got to do all the things, see all the sights, enjoy all the delicious foods and tasty drinks, and make all kinds of memories that will last a lifetime. You've inspired us to try new things and it will be fun to see these college girls try all your recipes! Hope you know how much we appreciate you both and are glad to have you as a part of the family. We'd love to share some of our Southern hospitality with y'all if you're ever in Georgia, so we can spoil you a little. Keep living the dream and making everyone else's dreams come true along the journey.

We Felt So Special

No words can fully describe the special week we had with you both. We knew this trip would be an indulgence and it really was in every single way all of us felt indulged, special, looked after and cared for! From the sushi that greeted us, to the soufflé we ended with, to the endless cocktails. The deliciousness for our bodies and the peacefulness for our minds was the perfect antidote to all of our busy lives! We will all treasure the continuous laughter and joy we experienced with incredible snorkeling,hikes,exploring all the different beaches (and bars).You both are truly gifted for making us feel so welcomed to your sea home. We can’t wait to come back. There have been so many incredible and hysterical memories, from the rap music, coffee talk in the morning and to many other indulgences to comment on. We love you guys and thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

Extremely Impressed

First, the trip was everything that we dreamed it could be-an amazing week of fun, relaxation, great food, and beautiful sights. We wanted to snorkel-a lot. We snorkeled on gorgeous spots everyday, sometimes as much as 6 hours in the water. The crew know where to go and when to go based on weather conditions. We were expecting to at least hand up our towels while on vacation, however the crew took care of our every need and repeatedly told us that this was our vacation to relax and enjoy. The food was amazing-extremely fresh, exceptionally prepared, well planned and coordination with previous meals, and plentiful for our 3 teenagers. My family is now in detox as they revert to my average cooking. I actually got the comment after we got home, "Too bad you can't cook like the chef, Dad." We can't imagine coming back to the Caribbean and not go on charter with anyone but them. We were comfortable with them right away. They determined what we wanted our vacation to be like on our first day and tailored our trip to our wishes throughout. I was extremely impressed with their knowledge and skills, couldn't recommend them more highly!

Fabulous Week

Absolutely amazing week. Fabulous boat!!!The best catamaran in the islands. Crew was phenomenal! Captain answered all my 700 questions and the food was top notch. Gourmet meals three times a day, each one better than the last. Had an amazing trip. Already planning our next adventure aboard.

Well Done!

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!

More Than We Dreamed Of

We find ourselves drifting back to our days on “Stop Work Order”!!! Our experience for 6 days is one that is somewhat hard to put into words because was everything and so much more than what we dreamed it would be. We arrived at Red Hook and were greeted by smiles that made us feel like close friends meeting. Boarding Stop Work Order pretty much took our breath away as it sat sparkling in the water and waiting for us was a bottle of “bubbly” chilled and ready to sip as we departed port. The yacht was immaculate and we were shown to our staterooms which we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of room each stateroom had. The crew had everything ready for the “kings and queens”!! I say that as that is how we were treated by them. Every detail was in place and for the next six days Dani and the captain would take us to destinations that we will remember for a lifetime. The food was 10 star quality prepared fresh each day. What the chef puts out of that galley is simply amazing along with the perfect presentation. The four of us were celebrating our wedding anniversaries, so she apparently caught wind of that and made a very special steak dinner with the most delicious chocolate cake including candles, It brought us to tears. They are definitely a team who work well together and care about their guests on board. We came home with two new friends as that is how we all felt while sailing the BVI with this crew. They were informative, fun, loving, and showed a passion for their work. It did not go unnoticed by any one of us. We thank you so very much for everything. It will be in our memory forever and we feel blessed to have had this wonderful opportunity with you and your staff. We love them and hope to see them again.
Thanks for the Memories,
