BVI Beyond all our expectations!
April 30 2022
Dear Bruce, Begona and Jess,
Thank You Thank You Thank You!
This was an incredible week mostly because your hospitality onboard made it so special. From the meals to the activities to the local knowledge to the sailing skills, it was beyond all our expectations. The boat is beautiful and the BVI are Paradise… but without this stellar crew it would only have been half as good.
You three make AMAYA the best Charter yacht in the Caribbean. Thank you! The Nunez B, W, H and E
BVI So much fun exploring
Thank you so much for an incredible vacation. The children had so much fun exploring this beautiful catamaran. The adults enjoyed it very much as well. The frozen drinks and the food were incredible as well. Exploring the BVI with the Amaya crew was an overall amazing experience. We hope to be back very soon. The Acosta and Carmony family
Simply The Best
Dear Amaya March 26 2022
This past week has been perfect. We could not have felt more welcomed each and every day. Every meal was delicious – so much that our 11 and 13 year old, found themselves not only trying everything but eating it too.
We have never taken a trip like this before and plan on making it annual. The BVI’s are simply beautiful . Amaya has all the frys. Everyone loved the Seabobs. To say we admire Bruce, Begona and Jess is simply an understatement. They are simply the best! We feel so blessed to have gotten a week with them. They made our trip for sure. Thank you & and much love. Kath, Scott, Will and Emma - Connecticut
Dear Bruce, Begonia and T,
From the moment we stepped aboard Amaya we started having a lifetime experience.
The Amaya is beautifully furnished down to every detail. But the best was being pampered and catered to nonstop. T you were constantly making sure we had everything we needed at all times. Begona I felt like we were eating at a top rated restaurant for every meal. And Bruce you were so attentive to our ever changing plans and were so patient answering all our questions.
We all feel as if we will never have such a beautiful and peaceful experience again. (But we hope we do)!
With much gratitude and fondness Beth, Kristy & Joey, Efraim & Chana
Trip of a Lifetime
Best crew ever. Trip of a Lifetime. Thank you very much for your hospitality. You run a great yacht. Bruce took special care. Begona fed us like royalty. Jessica treated us to lovely drinks and care. You are all so darling. The Barretts and Danielle.
The Amaya is beautiful but the team is spectacular. What a week. 5 star food thanks Begona. Fresh organic gorgeous flavors. She should have her own restaurant. Jessica is a master mixologist and she kept us hydrated and happy the whole trip😊.
And of course Captain Bruce at the ships helm. He was a wonderful Captain and we felt safe and secure as he mapped out the perfect tour of the BVI.
Thank you all for your outstanding attention to detail and your dedication to service. You made our week a most memorable time.
I had not idea what to expect when I was invited to join this trip. The Amaya is a beautiful boat but the hospitality provided by Begona, Bruce and Jessica help to make this an exceptional trip. Thank you all so very much. Dana.
Service was Exceptional
Bruce and Begonia,

Trip of a Lifetime. Thank you! Hollymore & crew
Happy New Year - with kids
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the most incredible week on the most luxurious boat with a world class captain and crew. This is our third charter and it was by far the nicest boat and the very best service. Bruce, the captain, was so accommodating and bent over backward to meet our every need. Begonia was an outstanding chef. Not only were her meals delicious and presented beautifully, she listened 100% to our pre-charter menu requests. Tihana makes an excellent pina colada and is wonderful with kids. The kids loved cooking and hanging with the crew.
