Chartered a week on the “Dolphin Splash” catamaran. The boat was in excellent condition after a complete refit following Irma. The 44 foot cat had plenty of room for our family of five adults. We were picked up in St. Thomas and then sailed to the BVI’s. It was nice not having to go through customs at the airport because we arrived in a US territory, and it is less expensive to fly into St Thomas than Tortola.
We had the best crew in the Caribbean. Captain Andy is an accomplished sailor who preferred sailing to motoring (not always the case on charters). We could do as much or as little actual sailing as we desired. He knew all of the great anchorages and was very familiar with all of the shore attractions. Unbelievable, what a great diver and snorkeler he is. Biology background gave him immense knowledge of the undersea life. He is very safety conscious and I felt very comfortable with my family diving with him.
Pevon was equally amazing. Her meals were awesome. Three hot, gourmet meals a day, plus appetizers and drinks. Everyone in our household are foodies, and we all raved about the meals. Wine selection was better than I anticipated. Liquor was all top shelf. It’s my first sailing vacation that I did not lose weight. Pevon is also a reliable first mate and assisted with the sailing of the yacht.
Both had charming personalities and made the vacation awesome. My family fell in love with them and a few tears were shed at goodbye. I would sail with Andy and Pevon again anytime. Again, Best Crew in the Caribbean!
