What an amazing adventure! You took us from St. Thomas to Caneel Bay on St. John, on to Norman (Pirates Bight) to Cooper Island, to Prickly Pear island, to Scrub Island then home again to St. Thomas. Along the way we stopped at Pussers at the the East End of Tortola, and Willy T’s. We snorkeled around the Indians and the wreck of the RMS Rhone (ghosts!!)You made sure we got to the Baths and Devil’s Bay National Park on Virgin Gorda (super cool and beautiful).
You both picked out cool landmarks as we cruised by, Brandon’s island, jumping manta rays, turtles and dolphins! In the evenings, after a full day of sun, water and delicious meals from Beni, we played UNO around the table while we listened to the water lap against the boat. Mia beat us over and over. I think we were all a little sad on the way back to St. Thomas but you buffered that by dropping us at the Soggy Dollar for some more beach time. You helped celebrate my 49th Bday w/ VERY spectacular peppers and a lovely B-day dinner with all of us. Beni & Ziggy, you two were the top of the trip, making sure we were safe, comfortable, incredibly well fed, entertained, informed and comfortable. I know that I enjoyed watching you both work together as an incredibly capable & loving couple. You did a great job making the kids comfortable and laugh. We wish you so much joy, success, and loving adventures & would love to sail with you( or just visit when you come to D.C.) again. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Big hugs, Ingrid, Christian, Jonathan & Mia

Our family is Vegan SOS (no salt, no oil, no added sugar) Benita did an amazing job cooking , preparing and presenting a wonderful wide variety, beautifully presented and amazingly tasteful food. Every morning, lunch and dinner was a treat for all of our senses. Lukata was an amazing captain making sure all of us were happy and doing active/fun things . For example using the under water scooter, towing the kids behind the RIB motor boat, snorkeling, lounging in the water, setting us up with movies on the tv, playing Monopoly or card games, etc. We were looking for the experience of a lifetime before the kids go off to college and we found it with Benita and Lukata. We owe you both a sincere debt of gratitude. We hope you both live long, happy , prosperous, lives with much love, Christopher, Colton, Carina, Tiffany

Dear Lukata & Benita , our vacation to the Virgin Islands was OVER THE TOP!!! You two were the best hosts our 25 year anniversary celebration. All of your special touches did not go unnoticed. The table was set beautifully each day and each day was made even more magical with your decorations with ABOVE & BEYOND service . I’m not even sure where to begin as of describing the meals that were so lovingly prepared with the freshest of fruits and vegetables from the family farm and seafood cooked to perfection!!! You even took into consideration our love of steak and cooked the tenderest portion surrounded by the medley of flavors the sautéed spinach and the best home fries ever!!! AND THE LOBSTER!!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!! We knew that we were in for a treat when the cheese board welcomed us on board. Lukata you showed us the very best secluded spots to make each adventure better than the last. You set a perfect private beach day for our anniversary. You had the toys ready for us to paddle board, float and even an underwater motorcycle. (So cool)!! Your bartending was exquisite ! Over all you both made us feel like family. TRULY! We look forward to sharing our experience and traveling with you again soon! Love you both dear family! Joy and Brent Moye, March 10, 2024

On behalf of our group, I want to thank you so much for the hospitality, time and energy that you exerted to make our first crewed charter experience an amazing one. We felt safe, attended to and left feeling like we were long time family friends.

We would like to share what stood out as amazing from our vacation that we hope you continue:

The overall cleanliness of the main cabin and dining area
Again, your attention to our safety and health
The beautiful fire dance show!
We loved the water toys!
