Amazing time in the BVI!!!
Our family of 4 recently chartered “Blue Horizon” from VMY. In a nutshell, from start to finish it was a great experience. 1. Booking/Coordination:Amanda was amazing and very responsive to my numerous emails :) We were able to tailor the charter to our specific needs, including crew, food and liquor, RIB rental to better use “water toys” as well as places to visit. 2. Boat:Blue Horizon was beyond comfortable for our family of 4 (might work for up to six plus crew)- it became our floating BVI home. My wife and I had a spacious master BR with a nice queen bed, plenty of space and large bathroom with separate shower. Our daughters had a smaller but still comfortable stateroom with a queen bed and nice bath. The boat has excellent spaces inside and out. We particularly enjoyed the aft open dining (with room for 6) and sofa. The fly bridge also had a nice area with a bar/separate fridge and BBQ. It also has a nice sonos sound system as well as TV’s in every room (that we never turned on...).3. Crew:Captain Alex and Lyn could not have been better and spoiled us to no end. Captain Alex knows the boat and the BVI like the palm of his hands. He has a very relaxed personality and is great to deal with. Although I tried to help in anchoring/docking etc., he did it so well by himself that eventually I just said “relax and let him do it”. Even though we have visited the BVI multiple times, he had very helpful suggestions and was very responsive to our preferences. He was also amazing at helping with water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, paddle boarding and with the included Sea Bob. Lyn (chef/mate) was also spectacular. First, she is a great human being. Then the quality of ingredients, variety and preparation of the meals was remarkable. She completely tailored every meal to our low carb/healthy style including chicken, pork, grilled steak and lobster. Oh and lets not forget “happy hour” with her delicious home made salsa and a cheese/avocado dip that were both addicting. We submitted our wine and liquor preferences and they were waiting for us on arrival. Finally, she kept the entire boat perfectly clean and organized. We were truly blessed to have this crew, will miss them but also know that we will see them back next summer:)4. Places to visit. We focused on Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda. At JVD enjoyed our fave Soggy Dollar Bar- an institution since 1970. Love Savannah in VG as well as Coco Maya. In short, a unique vacation full of great moments!
Great New Year Charter
Captain Bareboat Blue Horizon
First of all please be mindful of the fact that my family had never taken a boat trip like this before. So we had reservations but I rallied the troops and off we went !
Second, our family takeaway really was we didn’t know just how great it would be if we did not have Captain Alex. He is a pretty special individual... and made our trip that much better. It was fun to watch him operate.
As for the boat it was fabulous of course.
I would summarize like this...
Everything from the reservation process through the trip itself was smooth. The boat and Captain Alex allowed us to see things that few others could experience. Every stop was unique - the setting , the restaurants , the bay , the island you name it. And when we do it again it will hopefully Captain Alex and Blue Horizon
