Our voyage on the Foxy Lady was nothing short of spectacular. All of our (lofty) expectations were exceeded. Within two minutes of boarding the spacious catamaran, we were enjoying champagne and oysters. This set the tone for the duration of the trip.
The Foxy Lady is long and wide. There are so many comfortable places to situate yourself that you can choose based on sun, wind, and/or view. With eight of us, there was enough space for us to really spread out, if we wanted. The cabins and heads were also very comfortable, with more than adequate storage space. There is a bar, refrigerator, and coolers; all within just a few steps if you ever needed a beer, soft drink, or painkiller. Note that while you could always help yourself; one of the crew was always asking “do you need anything?”
The food was simply amazing. We could not stop raving about the fresh cut fruit (every morning), the fresh fish, grain bowls, steak, lobster, etc. Every meal was a special treat and we felt that we were in some magical restaurant on the ocean. Bex deciphered our “spec sheet” perfectly, and every palate was totally satiated.
I’ve saved the crew for last, as they were the primary reason for our happiness all day every day. Rob, Bex, and Dani were the most gracious, competent, and amicable hosts you could ask for. Rob was the “Captain Extraordinaire”. He knew all the best snorkel spots and would direct you in getting the perfect go pro shot at every spot. In addition to manning the helm, he did a bit of everything on the boat and was very knowledgeable about all things BVI. We actually had our daughter’s boyfriend join us two days in, and it was totally unplanned. This meant going off the scheduled itinerary and route to pick him up. Rob just said “we’ll make it work”, and he did. Effortlessly. Bex was our Chef (Head Chef?) who was responsible for us never having a bad bite. No exaggeration when I say everything we ate was excellent. Her timing, portions, and mix of foods was perfect. She even baked an unbelievably tasty chocolate cake for my daughter’s birthday. Dani was sort of a jack of all trades. Always smiling, and always there to ask if you needed anything. She made excellent cocktails, made sure the food was right, and helped with everything to do with sailing the boat.
As mentioned, we had a great time. The crew really made our trip as good as it was. If we do this again (pretty sure we will), we would search out Rob, Bex, and Dani and book whatever boat they are on.
