We had an absolutely amazing time on our charter. The boat was beautifully appointed, comfortable and very spacious. We loved all the “living” space.
John and Shirelle were wonderful hosts too. They were warm, kind, professional and friendly. They were attentive without being intrusive, a perfect balance. We enjoyed their company very much. We were greeted with champagne and a Congratulations banner and streamers for the girls. They took all of our pre-charter preferences to heart, even found good wine and coffee for us. Everything was perfect. They had plenty of energy to keep up with our active family too, including during what seemed to be the world’s longest tube ride (much to our daughters’ delight). They took us to beautiful spots for snorkeling and hiking. Our girls also bonded instantly with Shirelle. John was thoughtful and even made an extra unplanned stop when I mentioned we had been at Foxy’s years ago and I wanted to see it again. He was an excellent captain and Shirelle was a great first mate and chef.
Regarding the food, Shirelle’s cooking was truly incredible. Before this trip, I prepared myself that the food would be adequate, but we were blown away by the quality of each and every meal, snack and drink prepared lovingly by Shirelle (and John’s grilling skills were top notch). Shirelle even baked our family’s favorite cake to celebrate the girls’ graduations and served birthday pancakes, a family tradition that I briefly mentioned during our pre-charter call.
This was truly a vacation of a lifetime and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Thanks for your help in setting us up on the perfect boat with the perfect crew for our family. We will cherish these memories.
