    Wayne and I want to thank you for a wonderful adventure / vacation. It was absolutely amazing! The memories we have will last a lifetime.

    Captain Paul, all the places you took us starting with the first night in Red Hook to the last night at Lavango everything were amazing. The hike up to Rams Head and jumping off the front of the boat were two of my highlights. Wayne thought snorkeling through the coral reefs was his favorite. Everything we did was fun and memorable.

    We hope to be able to sail with each of you again. Hopefully BVI will open back up and we can have another wonderful adventure on Playtime or whatever may be your next boat. Keep us aware of any new developments.

    All of us felt that we will have to get back.

    Captain, Our Captain… our Captain Paul, the best! Thank you for sharing your love of the seas, for creating a “Playtime” world that values caring for others, sharing the islands, and bringing out the best in others along the way.  May the friendship we have started carry on for years to come.
    Thanks again

    Thank you for a wonderful week! The snorkeling, walk up Rams Head, and the sporty sail from St Croix were great experiences. Gene and I love sailing the USVI and BVI and look forward to being back.

    An amazing trip had by all-from private beach walks, to scuba trips in the most amazing places, to sailing, and the most fabulous food, drinks, and service. This trip was once in a lifetime!
    Our crew was more than awesome and became family! We cannot possibly thank you enough for sharing this boat and this week with us. Here’s to the most perfect start to a new year! We will be sailing with you again.

  • We had a wonderful time on the charter. After postponing our trip for a year and a half, we were over-due for a real vacation with the family. The boat was spectacular and Paul & Ashley were great. Playtime was comfortable, especially the brand new cushions throughout the boat. It’s apparent that the owner and Paul pay attention to every single detail in order to ensure smooth sailing and luxurious comfort for all the guests. Captain Paul was AMAZING! We had many different excursions and things we wanted to do. Paul was attentive and made sure that both adults and kids each had individual experiences as well as a great family experience. For example, our oldest son wanted to scuba, our youngest son wanted underwater photography, my husband wanted a secluded beach and I just wanted lots of painkillers and sunshine! Paul delivered and then some. He was gracious and constantly asked for feedback in order to ensure a relaxing charter. Paul suggested that we venture on a four hour sail from St. John over to St. Croix and we were not disappointed. Paul knows the islands and where to go to truly live and breathe ‘island time’ away from the tourists, even allowing us all to share in the experience of seeing baby turtles (5 days old) and an octopus. Ashley was wonderful as well. She effortlessly juggled meals that consisted of various requests and she always left us in awe. Her culinary expertise and her excitement for sailing and traveling was out of this world. I do need to circle back with her and get her recipe for turkey meatballs!! We are already thinking about our next charter in 2023 and we hope to be able to reconnect with Paul when that time comes. My youngest son is anxiously awaiting Paul’s response to connect over Skype this week to finish editing the underwater photos that they took (and Paul was trusting enough to let my son use his underwater camera). I am so thankful to Paul for giving this gift to my son. Paul is a true teacher and his passion for sailing, Playtime and connecting with nature left all of us wanting more.
