Our family of 4 recently chartered “Blue Horizon”. In a nutshell, from start to finish it was a great experience.
Blue Horizon was beyond comfortable for our family of 4 and it became our floating BVI home. My wife and I had a spacious master BR with a nice queen bed, plenty of space and large bathroom with separate shower. Our daughters had a smaller but still comfortable stateroom with a queen bed and nice bath. The boat has excellent spaces inside and out. We particularly enjoyed the aft open dining (with room for 6) and sofa. The fly bridge also had a nice area with a bar/separate fridge and BBQ. It also has a nice Sonos sound system as well as TVs in every room (that we never turned on…).
Captain Alex could not have been better and spoiled us to no end. Captain Alex knows the boat and the BVI like the palm of his hands. He has a very relaxed personality and is great to deal with. Although I tried to help in anchoring/docking etc., he did it so well by himself that eventually I just said “relax and let him do it”.
Even though we have visited the BVI multiple times, he had very helpful suggestions and was very responsive to our preferences. He was also amazing at helping with water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, paddle boarding and with the included Sea Bob. Lyn (chef/mate) was also spectacular. First, she is a great human being. Then the quality of ingredients, variety and preparation of the meals was remarkable. She completely tailored every meal to our low carb/healthy style including chicken, pork, grilled steak and lobster. Oh and lets not forget “happy hour” with her delicious home made salsa and a cheese/avocado dip that were both addicting. We submitted our wine and liquor preferences and they were waiting for us on arrival. Finally, she kept the entire boat perfectly clean and organized. We were truly blessed to have this crew, will miss them but also know that we will see them back next summer.
