GUEST REVIEWS

5/5
There is something magical casting off from shore and leaving the land behind as you set out on an adventure on the ocean. Our family wanted to experience a sailing vacation for Christmas. Cap’n Blaine hoisted sail, took us to beautiful bays, showed us the underwater coral gardens blooming with tropical fish. Cap’n Blaine’s first mate and chef extraordinaire, Vanessa constantly surprised and delighted us at meal time. We asked for seafood and Vanessa served it in spades. But she kept us guessing with a wide range of recipes, she also whipped up a vegetarian alternative for our friend.

Every day was an adventure. Christmas lunch we ate tacos at a floating restaurant called Lime Out in Coral Bay. Definitely the most fun way to eat tacos. Cap’n Blaine knows these waters. From where to moor and where to snorkel. He knows the history of the islands. He’s a good skipper and a good bloke.

The Virgin Islands are beautiful, the water is clear and warm and there’s lots of sea life. One week is not long enough. Even so, we came back to shore happier and healthier and the better for seeing the world from a different perspective
