  • First days are always filled with great anticipation of the adventure that lay before us. And a grand adventure is what we had. This crew of two made me feel like royalty. Captain Troy sailed this boat with the skill of a man with many years of experience. He maneuvered the boat with skill and grace of the sea turtles I saw moving effortlessly through the water. First Mate Jody enhanced our voyage. She brought an air of refinement that I have seldom experienced. I believe Emeril Lagasse would find it impossible to meet the standard that Jody set.

    To the A team from Seal team 6: Thank you for treating us to an amazing trip. It is one for the record books. Jody, your food is outstanding and we totally understand why you pick the sea as your home. Troy, your captain skills are impressive for such a young man. We have made memories we will talk about for years to come. Until next time.

Eli now will continue to talk of Chef Jody’s cooking and I don’t think Jace will forever think no one can ever be cooler than Captain Troy. We will forever cherish the memories and pictures from this trip. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    Thank you for an amazing experience! From the moment we stepped onboard and were greeted with Jody’s hospitality and painkillers! and Captain Troys safety forward! and pragmatic 3 square rule – we knew we were in the right place. The personalized attention, the Michelin star quality dining, the snorkeling, diving, sailing and of course the evening games will forever be part of.
