Our last week aboard the Guiding Light far exceeded our expectations, thanks to Shane. Shane quickly built relationships with Trevor (15) and Miranda (19) and we all enjoyed Shane’s sense of humor, knowledge of the Virgin Islands and different marine life, and his cooking! He pushed us out of our comfort zone and we had an absolute blast all week. Thanks for making this a trip of a lifetime – connecting as a family was our goal and it was a great success! Looking forward to our next adventure...

yacht description
Guiding Light offers an affordable captain-only charter - with the best part being Captain Shane. What a lovely guy! Renowned for his bread making skills - which we can attest to - he will also cook three dinners for you whilst onboard. He has tons of experience and will offer sailing courses should you want to try your hand at the helm. Accommodation is in three queen sized berths. There are three bathrooms so the port aft cabin shares with Shane. He has transformed the other aft head into a HUGE shower. Guiding Light has plenty of deck space to spread out and relax.

Why book Guiding Light - THE CAPTAIN - did we mention that we liked Shane?! This would be the perfect introduction to chartering in the BVI. Shane is knowledgeable on local history and will go above and beyond to ensure that you have a vacation of a life time and become one of his many repeat guests.
