| SAFARI GUESTS COMMENTS|
| This experience will be hard to beat!|
|We have sadly finished our week with Safari. I wanted to say what a great time we had. Safari was a really fabulous boat - stylish, immaculate and very well laid out and equipped. Stephen and Erin were a wonderful crew - highly competent and very attentive and hospitable but at the same time laid back and not intrusive. We felt in very safe hands with Stephen, and Erin is a really excellent cook. We have become converts to crewed catamarans but suspect this experience will be hard to beat. |
| Thank you for a wonderful trip!|
|Thank you for a wonderful trip. We were off to a shaky start with the high winds (for a family of landlubbers!) The good news was that we knew we were in very capable and experienced hands. The itinerary you planned for us was perfect, and the one modification we made (staying 2 days in Marina Cay) worked out so well. Thank you for your investment of time making sure our vacation was the best it could be. We were always one step ahead of those bare boaters in getting the best moorings! Gotta love that during the busiest week of the year! We had a great, relaxing time – kids and parents Happy New Year. Love,|
Ian – Thank you for taking care of us so well this week! I am very impressed that you could consistently please everyone (age 6-44+) with your delicious meals. We will be talking about them for a long time.

| Thanks for a truly memorable vacation!|
We like the Boat! We like the Captain! We like the food! This was our first charter experience, and it was really wonderful. The boat is very nicely appointed and was very comfortable, but the attention to our comfort really made the difference. The itinerary was just perfect, and gave us a great taste of the Virgin Islands.
Ian - The food was a nice surprise. You really exceeded our expectations, and I’ll be trying to replicate some of your sauces. Amazing that you could pull it off in that tiny galley.
Ed – What a great experience getting to sail the boat, and take the helm! You picked just the right spots – Cane Garden Bay and snorkeling Monkey Point, diving the Rhone – It was all great! Thanks for a truly memorable vacation.

| Your knowledge and competency kept us all feeling safe|
| ates, |
As I have learned this week of the thirst for treasure over the centuries in these islands, I have reflected on the notion that the best treasure is what you take with you everywhere – the love of your family, your faith in what you believe in, and the memories and experience gathered over your life. I can tell you that I have added substantial booty to my chest this week.
Ed, the care and warmth you have invested in our journey has been as welcome as the first happy hour libation, or Ian’s appetizers that satisfy and offer promise for the delectable meal that ensues. Your knowledge and competency kept us all feeling safe, and ready for whatever unfolded. Your guided tours and tales of the islands enriched our immersion into this unique part of the world. I felt how sincerely you wanted us to have a great week, and you delivered. Thanks Cap’n.
Ian, the fruits of your skilled labor will stay with me longer than I care to contemplate. Your ability to keep our ravenous kids fed and entertained was remarkable. You are a rock star to them and a friend to us. Thanks for the memorable and healthy meals and good cheer. Best of luck with the boat! With gratitude to our fine crew,
P.S. What a fine boat! Perfect for our family –
| We found it all here!|
Blue Water, Blue Sky, Brown Booze. We found it all here. Skipping island to island, we didn’t land too many fish, but many a memory from wind surfing to “catch phrase”. From scuba diving to fine dining, From Willy T’s family album to some wacky Rasta’s at Foxy’s, we did it all. It nearly brought a tear to daddy’s eye when he was reunited with his old hat at Foxy’s. I took my first scuba trip 50 feet below the waves, and entered a world I had never imagined was available. Jenn, MC, and Mom all baked in the sun and read something near 20 books. Jumping off the bow of the boat brought great laughs and splendid pictures. Though we didn’t find any pirates booty, we had an exceptionally awesome time, and I can’t wait until we come back. The food by chef Ian was superb, and the captaining by White Bearded Ed was great. Teri provided a wonderful smile, and great help w/Ed and the windsurf board. One Love, Brudda

| This was our Honeymoon…|
This was our honeymoon, and it was definitely special. We had planned this trip for awhile and it definitely met all our expectations. We came with no plans, just to relax, and we were definitely in good hands. The snorkeling was great, and we even got to see a shark! Thankfully we were on the boat :-) We accomplished our task of relaxing. Also, the food was amazing. Thanks for everything.

| Awesome Trip |
|We had a great time sailing with Captain Stephen and Erin! The Safari was beautiful, clean,well laid out and absolutely perfect. The places we visited and the fun we had made us want more. So many great beaches, snorkeling and fun bars were part of this tour. Stephen and Erin certainly know the best spots and know so many of the locals,that we felt very welcomed in every place we visited. Lobster at Sydney's...Foxy singing a Canadian song for us...it just doesn't get much better. Thanks for the patience in teaching us a little bit about sailing and showing us the "ropes" over and over. We hope to be back with the whole family. |
