Our family of 4 (kids are 12 and 14) had the best time onboard REACH with Dave and Naomi! We’ve been to the BVIs a few times before, but exploring the islands on the amazing 50’ catamaran with SUCH AN AWESOME CREW was absolutely the BEST!! We were able to explore BEAUTIFUL bays, EXCITING snorkeling and swimming spots (Maho Bay (STJ), Indians, Baths, Anegada, Caneel Bay (STJ)), and FAVORITE hot spots (Willy Ts, CocoMaya, Soggy Dollar), just to name a few!
REACH was such an amazing boat with space to chill and socialize! The flybridge was SO great to feel the breeze while sailing. We even learned a few sailing tips from Dave on our trip to/from Anegada! We also took advantage of the comfortable trampoline with bean bags and seating area on the bow. Plenty of space for full sun, full shade, or a mix of both!
REACH had loads of activities as well. The adults enjoyed lounging on the floating mat and paddle boards while the kids loved the sea scooters, tubing and knee boarding! The entire boat had plenty of space especially in the master cabin PLUS each kid had their own cabin with queen bed and bathroom.
The BEST part of our trip was the CREW! Dave and Naomi provided such a welcoming and relaxing environment for our entire family. They work so well together with such fun energy!
Dave planned a route that EXCEEDED all our wishes! He even found a way to accommodate water activities for the kids on the afternoon when mom and dad stayed a little longer at Soggy Dollar, making everyone HAPPY!! Each day, we landed in bays with great views and snorkeling. We were able to see turtles, rays, and loads of various fish, as well as amazing coral! He provided sailing tips for the adults with both of us taking the helm for a bit PLUS he was constantly entertaining the kids with fun activities!
Naomi was SO sweet and such an AMAZING chef! We love exhilarating food experiences and Naomi’s meals are WELL BEYOND 5 STARS!! She was able to create the most EXQUISITE meals accommodating the family’s food intolerances and preferences! Every meal was VISUALLY STUNNING and ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Our favorites were the stuffed pasta shells, pad thai and handmade spring rolls, beef short ribs, and poke bowls! We also loved the cocktails from both Dave and Naomi, especially the WONDERFUL surprise cocktails at cocktail hour!!
It was SO FUN hanging out with both Dave and Naomi and learning more about them! A few fun quotes from the trip (albeit some of these are inside jokes):
I LIKE TURTLES!!
YOU LOOK NICE! YOU LOOK LIKE YOU LIKE CHICKEN AND RICE!!
THIS DOESN’T SUCK!!
Thank you DAVE and NAOMI for making our first (but definitely not our last) family yacht charter such a MEMORABLE experience! We will miss you until we meet again!
