We’ve never been on a boat charter before, so we had some apprehension going in. We have two girls (19 and 20) and two boys (16 and 17), so we were concerned about everything from will there be enough to eat, will the kids like the food, to will there be enough activities to keep them occupied?
Keagan and Olivia made us feel right at home from the minute we walked on the boat. About an hour into the charter, we’re already at Maho Bay jumping into the clear blue water and when we get back on the boat, Olivia has prepared the largest Charcuterie board I’ve ever seen!… so delicious! In fact, every meal was just amazing. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton St. Thomas immediately before going on this charter, and we ate at many top restaurants… I truly thought Olivia’s meals were far better. More flavor, better presentation, larger portions (so much food), and much better service. We really looked forward to every meal. Olivia was also an outstanding tour guide as well… taking us snorkeling in some of the reefs, going on a hike with us, and personally escorting us through the shops on St. John.
Keagan was equally outstanding. He was always looking out for us in the water. He even jumped in the dingy to check on our boys who had ventured out a bit too far for mom’s comfort. He was always making sure we had everything we needed from floats to snorkel gear to drinks. It was just outstanding service. He orchestrated everything perfectly, ensuring we were leaving early enough to get the best spots at Salt Pond and Lime Out. He quickly built a relationship with all of us, and we all looked forward to talking about what we saw that day and the itinerary for the following day.
The Seadog was also an outstanding vessel. Keagan & Olivia clearly keep her in top notch shape. Everything was pristine, clean, and well maintained. I love the layout of the boat as well. There was plenty of shaded space upfront for afternoon naps, the open air galley ensured we always had a good breeze, and the upper deck was outstanding for star gazing.
The kids are already saying “I wish we were back on the boat” and “Can we do this again next year?… but only with Keagan and Olivia.” 🙂 Teenage kids are really hard to please… so there is really no better endorsement I can give. I appreciate Keagan and Olivia for truly making this a trip of a lifetime.
