Our family recently had the pleasure of an 8-day trip on Island Hoppin' in the BVI. The boat itself was impeccable, clean, and ready for our adventure. It was stocked with everything we could imagine for water activity (scuba tanks, SUP boards, kayaks, yoga mats, and even a wakeboard and water skis!). We were able to dive 7 days with divers' experience levels ranging from beginner to very experienced. Jamie, the captain, was also our dive guide and comfortably navigated us on a variety of sites ranging from reef dives to wreck dives, in various conditions.

Susannah did a remarkable job in preparing beautiful, healthy meals (and great desserts!) in a fashion more worthy of a restaurant kitchen instead of a boat's galley! Jamie and Susannah listened to our thoughts and wishes for the trip, they were engaged and involved, non-stop, in making our experience memorable, and we truly could not have asked for better guides or a better boat to takes us through an incredible BVI sailing and vacation experience!...

yacht description
Island Hoppin' is a really lovely 2018 Lagoon 52 catamaran – at the 2018 crewed yacht show she won "Best in Show" – so well deserved as the yacht is pristine and the crew are wonderful.

Layout is four queen cabins plus a bunks room, each with en suite bathrooms that feature separate showers. Normally the crew will take a queen cabin but, if you prefer, they will swap and use the bunks room. The lounge area includes the galley so you can sit back in the comfortable leather sofas and watch the chef prepare your mouthwatering meals.

This yacht has tons of outdoor space with plenty of areas to either have privacy or accommodate a group. The upstairs "third floor" flybridge is always the most popular spot being the perfect place to relax, enjoy sundowners or keep a look out for dolphins when underway. Forward there is another seating area with comfy lounging cushions. The huge cockpit at the back of the boat can easily seat 8 guests for al fresco dining.

Why book Island Hoppin' - UNDERWATER GEAR – Captain Jamie is a dive instructor so 3 dives/week/pp is included in your charter fee. They can also offer resort courses and even certification if you have completed the online course before arriving. PLUS they have two water scooters - your own underwater propulsion unit for snorkeling and diving! So much fun!
