Cory and Emily both have a strong love for the water and anything fun in the sun. Together they make a magnificent team and will go above and beyond to make your vacation memories last a lifetime.
Cory's passion for water sports started at a young age while growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, a few miles from Annapolis, Maryland, the Nation's sailing capital. He has over 20 years of experience skippering, racing, teaching and captaining sailboats and is willing to show anyone the ins and outs of the sport. He has been cruising the Caribbean since the late 90’s aboard large sailing catamarans and can share his extensive knowledge of the islands, restaurants and culture with you. With a passion for cooking and 3 years in the restaurant service industry as a craft cocktail bartender, he and Emily will provide first class dining and beverages while accommodating any customer requests or needs. As a team, they share responsibilities in the galley preparing meals and catering to their guests.
Emily comes from a family of charter boat captains. While being raised on Tybee Island, Georgia, she was taught from a young age everything about the charter industry; inshore/ offshore fishing, dolphin eco-tours, fossil hunts and enjoys educating others about the natural eco-systems. She has always had a passion for the water which began behind a boat, wakeboarding and water-skiing. She has 15 years' experience in the restaurant service industry, working at one of the nation's top restaurants, learning from award winning chef's, managers and wine sommeliers. Emily is also a certified Yoga instructor and loves leading practices on the beach, paddle boards and sailboats. She'll help center your mind during one of her practices in the world's most beautiful setting.
Cory and Emily fell in love the summer of 2012 and have been attached at the hip ever since. Together, they ran a successful standup paddle board and kiteboarding retail store in St. Augustine, Florida and married in 2017. Their passion for travel, kitesurfing and scuba diving lead them to chartering catamarans for their clients in the Bahamas where they quickly realized they wanted a lifestyle change. They are both USCG Certified Captains; Cory with his Master License, Auxiliary Sailing Endorsement and STCW, Emily with her 6-Pack and STCW.
They would love to have you aboard one of their sailing vacations. Their unique experiences, certifications and qualities will ensure you have the best possible vacation in the Virgin Islands with a laid back, professional couple who put safety and customer satisfaction first.

Our word for the trip: PERFECT
Thank you so much for a trip with a lifetime of memories as we celebrate Anna's graduation. The diving was spectacular. The mountain top reservations at the great Murphy's house for three-- and the view, we will never forget that. The quiet anchorages were just what the doctors ordered to unwind and unplug. The food was delicious and something we looked forward to everyday. Blessings, The Sward's

What was the most memorable highlight of your yacht charter vacation? Hard to put down just one- the food, sunset hike/picnic over Waterlemon Bay, scuba at Mingo Cay and the Ledges.
Any additional comments you would like to make regarding your vacation experience? It was a fantastic experience. The perfect trip to celebrate our daughter’s graduation. Capt Cory and Chef Emily were wonderful. The food was fantastic-every meal we were impressed with Chef Emily’s creativity and skill. Lisa is having some issues with gluten. Emily went above and beyond in creating meals that Lisa could eat- and they were 5 star. My daughter, Anna, said before the trip that one of the things she was looking forward to was the food- she was not disappointed.
We loved the scuba. We are newly certified divers and they made us feel comfortable and safe. We appreciated Capt Cory giving us an itinerary based on his experience- he didn’t disappoint. The trip was perfect for us- we were content to spend time on the boat relaxing/reading while also spending time snorkeling, hiking, scuba, etc. We would definitely sail with Capt Cory and Chef Emily again.

I don't think I've ever been so excited to see two people I had only known for a week, and this has been the BEST WEEK EVER!! Every single day was perfection, beginning with the most magical & amazing engagement I could ever dream of. We have truly enjoyed spending every day of our vacation with you two (and your top- notch food and service). Things we loved: tacos @ lime out, lobster everything, catching & eating our first Wahoo, giving Cory a hard time about the mahi, massages, water island, boat & float concert, drinks in Christianstead, dancing after dark... Things we hated : Leaving :( Until Next Time (hopefully many more next times) - LOVE YA'LL Chris Willams & Jennifer Marlar
Amanda and Joe Talbott - This was a trip of a lifetime! Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your knowledge of the island. Bamboovi was definitely my favorite store and please keep the white flags for future use :) Cheers and please come visit us in Cali!

This week has been amazing. I had no clue what to expect, bubt you guys and Euphoria exceeded our expectations. The view, the food, the adventures, the service.. Such an awesome vacation. Might bring the kids next time? We cannot wait to follow your instagram adventures and we will be your first customers on Emily’s cookbook. Thank you also for our VI lessons and the introduction to Mexican train.
Thank you so much for such an amazing week. We had a blast diving, snorkeling, kiting and fishing! The food was phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation, we hope to see you stateside at some point!

What a wonderful time we had. You are simply amazing! The service, attention to detail “so special” all the time, something we don’t see often.
You are a great team and extremely professional!! Every meal was simply delicious.
For sure we are looking forward to our next dream vacation on this beautiful Sunreef; Euphoria, with you both!!
Thank you for everything, you are really the best! Our vacation was perfect!
Words cannot describe how thankful we are to both of you. You made our vacation truly one to remember. Thank you for all the special little details and the amazing service. We look forward to sailing with you again soon.
We have too many words to say about this wonderful week, it was perfect. I wanted to spend time with my kids, alone, without interruption before they leave the nest for good, and it was heaven! Getting to know you two was icing on the cake. I have memories of this week that I will carry with me always. After the last year and a half we all needed to reset, recargue and refocus. Euphoria gave us the safe haven we all needed. With you all, I felt so safe and protected from everything which is what we needed.
I will carry Euphoria, Emily & Cory in my heart always. I will never forget this time and I cannot wait until next time. I didn't even have time to mention the FOOD! OMG, the BOAT! Amazing. The most comfortable boat imaginable.
December 2021 (New Years)
This has been a trip of a lifetime for our family! So many firsts for our kids from water skiing to knee boarding, catching 2 huge mahi all while sailing through paradise. It has als been such a relaxing week for me and Graham which is hard to come by when traveling with 4 kids. Words can’t express how much we appreciate all you two have done for us this week. Emily- The food you lovingly prepared for us all week has been amazing. We are all a few pounds heavier! Cory- the martinis have been the ebay I have ever had! And you have been so fun with the kids, taking them tubing, skiing, wakeboarding, etc.. What fun to celebrate new years with you and an early birthday celebration for Ry and Graham. Thank you for making all these special memories for us! I could go on but the kids want me to leave room for them. You two will be in our hearts forever and we will definitely stay in touch and see you again! Thank you again for this incredible experience!
I try to center our life around little moments that create big memories! You both have impacted our lives and I hope we have done the same for you. As we continue to write our family story, we will look to add more more moments/ memories and find a way to plan Part II! Until our next sail together!
Thank you so much for the fun and joy you have brought to us. You made every minute special and fun whether it was an amazing meal, or getting thrown off the tube. You helped make so many amazing memories for us over the week and I had so much fun! Turtles, water skiing, snorkeling, shell hunding, sailing, new years ball drop, and even cheese touch wouldn’t have been possible without you guys. You helped me forget about my stressful life back home with gym & school and remember that there is more than that & there is so much adventure out there. So thank you for all the amazing things you helped us do this trip. We will be back soon! We’ll miss you, keep being the best charter out there!
This vacation has been nothing short of phenomenal, and I can’t imagine a better pair to share it with. You guys have done more than I thought 2 people were capable of, and we were able to feel like our lifelong friends. Emily, I will never forget your delicious meals, and I have to come back for a few more double date scubas. Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you so much for curating such an outstanding trip, fit with meal after meal of delicious food, awesome scuba dives and incredible water activities/ hikes, we loved being whisked from thing to thing without a moment of boredom! It was great having such knowledgeable and talented individuals at the hel0, and I so enjoyed hearing all your stories throughout the trip.
So when we booked this trip I really didn’t know what to expect. I figured epic family vacation. This cruise and crew shattered my expectations. Gorgeous aqua water, gourmet meals & snacks, I give it an 11/10. I’m so gonna miss this!
Loved everything you did to make this week joyful and special, from the secret lobster holes to the fabulous food to the Christmas caroling from the tender. The only bad thing about the week is that it had to and and we must leave you behind. Please do look us up if you come to Austin - would love to show you our corner of the world.
Thank you for making our trip of a lifetime truly memorable and special. The food was amazing as was everything. The diving was off the hook and the sailing was the best. Thank you so much!
What a fabulous trip! The snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, boat jumping, fishing, sailing, “Captain Ron” - and the food! Just spectacular all around! Thank you so much Cory and Emily for being such amazing guides and hosts on this journey. Already looking forward to our next adventure together!
We would like to thank you for giving us the most incredible adventure we have had as a family. The fond memories will stay with us forever. Favorite things were the exceptional food at every meal, snorkeling the reefs and playing backgammon.
Thank you so much for an amazon week. We planned this trip in 2019 before covid, before baby #4. You both were so great towards the kids and also put up with us adults! Here’s what we loved about this trip: Mom- The Food! (Ribs), lameshur day, sunsets & snorkeling. Dad- Sunrise & sunsets, Food! Amazing meals, great sunning sports & the best happy hours. Kids- Snorkeling, sleeping on the boat, swimming, boat jumps, tubing, kneeboarding, desert!
Thank you again for being such great hosts, we loved being on charter with you and all that came with it. We can’t wait to be with you again, please come visit us in Florida!
Thank you so much for a really great trip! I had so much fun tubing, kneeboarding, water skiing and snorkeling, I hope to see you again soon. It has been an amazing trip!
Best family trip ever! It was worth the wait, thank you for everything.
Thank you for a wonderful week of sailing, snorkeling, hiking, fine dining and an occasional beverage. It was an unforgettable way to celebrate the 60th birthday of three very special women. We hope to charter with you again.
Bravo! Thank you for an amazing experience, may the fair winds always be with you.
Thanks for making our 60th so great! Nothing like and “Emily adventure”
Thank you for an amazing trip and celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary! Your attention to our every need was awesome! God has truly blessed you both with gifts of kindness, respect, patience and a love for your job and each other. This has been a trip of a lifetime for us but hopefully not the last. Blessings to you and your future adventures! With appreciation, wonderful memories- Chuck and Diane
Thank you for the best vacation ever! The food was extraordinary, and the service was second to none. Thanks for being so chill and flexible with us, you’ve truly made this week on of the best in my lifetime. Come see us when you’re back in GA!
Best trip ever! The boat is absolutely wonderful and the service you gave is beyond. We loved every minute of our time with you. Food was spectacular - prepared with lots of heart. Thank you for making our 2021 family trip so memorable. You’re awlays welcome in Tulsa!
On behalf of the kids, thank you for everything - we couldn’t have dreamt of a better experience.
P.S. Thank you for the delicious gluten free food.
We can’t thank you enough for such excellent hospitality and a wonderful trip. We were so impressed by your kindness and thoughtfulness… and the food was to die for! We wish you all the best and hopefully get to see you soon again. P.S May the night watch continue to keep you safe!
Great trip, fantastic food, fun and friends. Diving was beautiful, thanks Cory and Emily for everything!
We can’t thank you enough for the most fantastic vacation! Everything was perfect! You are both wonderful, we would not change a thing. Thanks for the best 50th birthday Rob could ever ask for!
Super time aboard Euphoria! Top shelf service and guiding our activities and places to see. Fun time snorkeling and seeing Cory catch his largest lobster to date. Emily proved so understanding of Melanie’s grilled cheese diet. Thanks again, met as crew/ client, left as friends.
There is so much to be said, you both are so wonderful. From day 1 to day 8 you have exceeded our expectations. This was the first and not the last long-term boat charter with a personal chef and captain. Emily, your cooking is just phenomenal!, delicious and presented beautifully. Love all your personal touches you have done with the table, flowers, even your sunscreen holder. Thank you for answering all the questions! Cory, thank you for how well you have captained the boat, you do a great job, really enjoyed chatting about sailing, your cooking is wonderful also on the green egg. The two of you really make Euphoria what it is. We can’t wait to see you soon in either Kentucky, Texas or FL!
Nate and I will forever be grateful to you two for making our 20 year wedding anniversary celebration better than we could ever imagine. I truly feel like we made life long friends with you both, can’t wait to see you in Texas soon!
You two are rock stars! Can’t wait to sail with you again and show you around Texas. Thank you for all the special treatment and love. Cheers to your journey together and sharing some if it with us!
We really can’t go on enough about how this vacation - and you both - exceeded our already high expectations. Before we left, whenever stressed we would imagine being here and would feel better right away. I know I will do the same long after we return. Thank you for taking such thoughtful care of us. When you feel safe you can step out of your comfort zone and reap the rewards. The FOOD - wow! We entertain and know what it takes and were even more impressed with the organization, provisioning, prep, presentation and flavors!! Oh! And the cocktails, all amazing and perfect for the setting. Thank you for your help making Sheldon’s birthday special, always a challenge for me but harder while traveling. Lastly, your professionalism, from the handling of the boat to ensuring the comfort of your guests, to acting as dive masters is unmatched and worthy of respect. Thanks for the lifetime of memories, hope to see you soon on future adventures! Sheldon & Diane
Sheldon and Diane said it all- you both exceeded our expectations in all ways. Boat was spectacular, food was off the charts, and you both were fantastic hosts. Cory- thank you for risking your arm and hands to catch fresh lobster. Thank you both for unforgettable diving and night snorkeling. We hope to cross paths again soon.
WOW! What a blast! Just - the food - every meal better than the one before, and having to adapt to the food allergies of the girls, the meals were creative and beautiful.
Second- the locations, all the bays you picked to anchor were great and they offered so much to do above and below the waves.
Third- y’all- so accommodating to our wishes, making sure we were happy and enjoying ourselves, your positive attitude is infectious. Thank you! Kathryn, Scott, Whitney, Kelly and Jessi.
Thanks for a fantastic week! You guys were awesome and thought of everything. The kids had a blast with the water sports and the food was fabulous. It’s going to be hard to go home and cook after this experience. Thanks for your endless patience with hours of tubing and wakeboarding. Scuba was incredible and definitely a highlight but phase 10 will forever be one of our most memorable experiences! Emily I will forever think about you when playing it in the future! We had an amazing experience and loved getting to know you both, thanks for everything!
We are all so happy and grateful that we decided to take this trip with you on Euphoria! You both are exceptional at your jobs and are truly living the dream. Thank you for all your patience with us and answering a one million questions. WE loved absolutely everything about this amazing adventure. Thank you for guiding us on this trip of a lifetime. Much Love always from your Wisconsin crew.,- Christensen's- Hannah, Chris, Mike, Max, Britney, & Cal
The Schaners have had a wonderful and much needed vacation. Thank you for making every detail from the rose on the bed to opening up the sails and every bite of food amazing. We have loved making new friends and look forward to welcoming you into our home. Cheers, hugs, and everything the best for the two of you. Love Julie & Paul
The entire trip has been amazing! Food, friends, adventure, music, history, snorkeling with turtles, a cocktail every day.... EVERYTHING. Thank you capt Cory & Emily for the trip of a lifetime.
-Woody & Reggie
My name is Dave, my wife is Regina … and we sailed aboard the Euphoria this past week (FEB 21-26). I wanted to take time to briefly write … and advise you as to what a world-class experience we had. Our reason for the trip was to celebrate our friends’ 50th birthday / we had seven couples in total (was a tandem cruise with Tellstar). Despite our crew’s extremely high expectations for this trip … the end-result far exceeded our hopes on every single level. The vessels are magnificent / the venue is unmatched. We also had excellent weather – and I know that greatly adds to the experience.
As one of three couples to sail on Euphoria that week … we were especially impressed by the crew: Cory & Emily Busichio. Team Busichio’s commitment to delivering such a grand experience made the difference here – hands down … and here are a couple of reasons why.
THEY ARE GREAT AT WHAT THEY DO: Exhibiting an acute attention to detail – no point of order was too small / nothing was overlooked to ensure the best experience. These guys care about delivering excellence / ensuring Euphoria’s guests have the best possible experience. Two examples here: (a) our group really enjoys live music. So how do you pull this off in a COVID-centric / very remote USVI environment? A somewhat bizarre / challenging request indeed. But Cory came thru by locating / booking the band “After Irma” who regaled our group with a brilliant 2.5 hour live performance on the fantail of Euphoria (for some of us it was the highlight of the trip) … and (b) I was hoping to find a little bar / haunt in Cruz Bay where I had spent some good memories back in 2003. The goal was to grab a quick libation and buy another T-shirt. As promised … I caught a ride to shore … found the place but it was temporarily closed. The jaunt still made for a very fun side excursion. Two days later … and totally unbeknownst to me … Cory had made his way back to Cruz Bay and found the bar when it was open / he bought me the T-Shirt I was seeking. Totally unnecessary … but you can imagine how that gesture made me feel.
THEY ENJOY WHAT THEY DO: Always seen with smiles on their faces … Cory & Emily seem to relish in their roles – which are quite challenging when you think about it. Catering to so many different preferences can be a tough task. But they do so with ease. No examples are more illustrative than (a) meal time. Emily’s meals are brilliant: the presentation / the delicious quality / the variety. You can tell she greatly enjoys “WOWING” her guests with these endless options. And I have never been so happy to sit down to eat. And (b) the amount of time Cory & Emily spent chatting up / enjoying / interacting with our group. It not only made for a great vacation – but it made for an excellent way to make new friends.
So as we return to reality … I want to thank you all for such a great time!
We will plan to come back again soon!
Hey Jack & Cory - hope y'all had a quiet and restful weekend! I can assure you our crew was taking it easy after last week. WOW what a great time! Donna and I wanted to say a huge thank you again for everything you and your teams did for us last week. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and one that will be hard to beat. (however there is already talk of another adventure once the BVI reopens!)
I want to be sure we get the word out about how great you and your crew were last week and how well you worked together. The teamwork was seamless, the food and coordination of happy hours was amazing, activities were exactly what we were looking for, the live music - wow that was a blast! So many great memories!
You guys absolutely killed it last week so don't be afraid to ask! Our group are more than happy to get the word out! Let me know.
To the management team for the Euphoria,
I want to express how much we appreciated the excellent crew of the Euphoria. You have an accomplished crew that were warm, confident, accomplished sailors, funny, energetic, amazing hosts and certainly people that I would want to represent my brand. The owners should feel very confident that they are doing a fabulous job representing your firm and caring for your vessel.
We had a perfect week made exceptional by the care and engagement of a tremendous couple, Cory and Emily. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.
Could not agree more with Matt’s note (and as you probably saw on charter we don’t always agree J). I’ve described the trip as “Epic” which is saying a lot. We’ve had a lot of great trips and many of them with this group of friends so expectations going in where high and you guys KILLED IT! Emily, Sara, Blake and Jake were absolute joys. So lovely and easy to be around. The food was next level, cocktails were probably too good, activities perfect, company wonderful and boats spectacular. I lead a team in the service industry. I know the importance of references and we’d happily be one for any of you, any time. Thank you for all you did to coordinate the trip so everyone could be together as much as possible and had equal experiences regardless of where we ate, drank, or passed out. We miss you all already and really hope that if your travels take you to Atlanta, Austin, Denver or Breckenridge you will look us up. The offer was genuine. Let’s do it again soon!
Sailing in the islands is amazing! The temperature is awesome, the water is beautiful with the different shades of green, and there are wonderful places to see and explore. But what really made this the best vacation ever, with out a doubt, was Captain Cory and Emily. Their life experiences lend perfectly to taking care of their charter guests. When you combine their time in the service industry, their time spent growing up on the water, and owning their own water sports store, it uniquely qualifies them to provide a level of service unmatched by any charter boat available. Some days on our trip we wanted to do everything and some days we wanted to do nothing but relax. They were prepared everyday to make sure what ever we felt like doing was a accommodated and memorable. I don’t know if I can put into words just how amazing the food was! We tried at the end of our trip to determine the top 3 meals of the week which in the end was an impossible task. We had picky eaters, individuals who would try anything and even a vegan on board. Emily catered to everyone’s needs flawlessly with 5 star level food.
Our trip started getting on a boat with Captain Cory and Emily and at the end of our trip it felt like we were saying goodbye to two new friends. When I do this again I am more interested in booking a trip where ever they are sailing and less about the destination.
What an amazing adventure on our Euphoria Trip. Cory & Emily - you really outdid yourselves - Who knew it was possible that 2 people could be so talented from Captain to fishermen, divemaster's, yoga instructors, chefs, bartenders, entertainers and "therapists". We loved getting to know you both and hope to see you soon. - Same time next year? - Heart
Emily & Cory,
You two made this trip very special for our whole group! The food was wonderful and snorkeling was amazing! We enjoyed every moment thanks to you.
-Pat & Patty
Emily & Cory-
It is difficult to find words to express how enchanting this experience was. I'm pretty sure I'll be smiling for weeks & will be revisiting the memories for years to come. The two of you were incredible hosts. Thanks for all you did & for making this a fantastic vacation.
- Pete & Angie. - Tom & Nichole
What a fantastic week! C & E were so welcoming. They made us feel at home. Emily's meals never disappointed. The attention to detail for each guest like & dislikes made for a relaxing & enjoyable week. No better way to bring in the New Year!
Thanks so much for a perfect week out on the water. The snorkeling was amazing and the food was even more amazing! You guys are perfect hosts. We can't wait to sail with you again soon.
Thank you for an amazing week. The food & your service is world class. The "Daily Drink", incredible dishes and all around caring and delivery of it all was perfect. Great time with great friends and that makes even better memories. Thank you and can't wait to come back.
- Kurt & Tammy, Tom & Lori, Dan & Carol.

What a tremendous experience we had during our time on Euphoria! Aside from the fact that Euphoria is a beautiful catamaran, we also had the great fortune to have Cory and Emily as our crew. It was our first time in USVI and with their knowledge of the islands, every day was flawless. They were tirelessly accommodating to our activities (fishing, kayaking, floating, hiking, snorkeling, paddle board yoga, etc). The food was a show stopper every time and their attention to detail is top notch! They even went above and beyond to plan a special anniversary dinner celebration that really showcased their creativity, skill, and knowledge of good food. Whether it was the cocktail of the day, the catch of the day, picnic on the beach or just a beautiful day of sailing, this vacation proved to be a great retreat, escape and a fun time to spend with friends. Cory and Emily are consummate professionals and go the extra mile, in an effortlessly, friendly and relaxed way. Thanks for the adventures and the memories of a lifetime!

Thanks for sharing the pictures and for making our vacation one of the best! - Jeff & Kristin
This was the best trip ever!!! Food...outstanding! Words can not describe this vacation... simply the best! Both of you are the best hosts ever. Thank you for everything and we will be looking for future charters with you both!
What an unbelievable ship and crew. Cory and Emily are the best hosts ever. They catered to everything we asked for, and set up an unbelievable itinerary. We saw it all, and they took into account what we were after during the entire cruise. The food was amazing!! You will not go hungry with this crew. All the presentations were right out of a magazine, with a ton of variety. Every plate, snack and were completely devoured. From fresh seafood (caught during the charter), short ribs to die for, to midnight spaghetti and meatballs, you will not be disappointed. I will warn you that we all gained 10 pounds on this tour. I will tell you that having a great charter is completely dependent on having a great crew, and these two are the best! We will be seeking them out for future charters.
Thanks for all the great memories, laughs, and all around fun Cory and Emily.
Thank you for making this a trip of a lifetime. You introducing snorkeling to us was a gift. Your cooking is fantastic. Most of all, your welcoming demeanor is priceless.
Thank you for being the best part of our trip with your service, knowledge and kindness. This was our bucket list trip to celebrate two amazing birthdays and you made it a trip of a lifetime. So many new memories to be kept and shared forever!
Great Food, Great Service, Great Sailing, Great Location!
It was so fun doing yoga with you Emily, it was really fun sailing with you Cory and I love your cooking!

It was a pleasure getting to know you both. We look forward to our next Trip on the fabulous boat Euphoria with both of you again.
Lots of love,

Cannot stress enough how breathtaking this week has been. Your knowledge about not only your navigation of the islands and sea, but everything in between, sets you apart from everyone else. Service was incredible all across the board. Food was insanely good, and we can't thank you enough for one of the best weeks of our life. We will miss your fun -loving personalities.
Thank you so much!

What an amazing week! Cory and Emily did an amazing job with food and sailing. Great time snorkeling at the Indians, lovely picnic lunch at Soggy Dollar. Awesome sunsets and an all out great time. Thanks for all.

Dream Vacation aboard beautiful Euphoria! Fabulous weather the entire trip, along with amazing meals.

Mobile five star restaurant in the most beautiful place in the world. Thank you so much Cory and Emily
I leave this boat with great sadness. Hard to leave such amazing people, after an amazing week in an amazing part of the world.
Talk about amazing! I have explored the world, 25 countries and counting and this experience tops the charts. We explored the British Virgin Islands for 10 days with Capt Cory and I still find myself daydreaming about this adventure. The waters were the most incredible blue and living aboard a boat is now at the top of my bucketlist.
Cory was an outstanding captain. He was knowledgable about the different ports and had all the best recommendations on what to do and knew exactly where to take us. He is an incredible sailor and even taught us a thing or two! All in all, he made the experience absolutely unforgettable.
There were 10 of us aboard and I can speak for everyone and say that this was an unmatchable experience. Years later, I rave about this adventure and have already starting recruiting friends to join me on another trip with Cory and his wife!
Seriously -- magic!
Best Sailboat Trip Ever!
Best sailboat trip ever! Cory and Emily took care of every detail so I could relax and enjoy the experience. I highly recommend this trip and I look forward to sailing with them again!
Cory and Emily Are The Best
My wife and I enjoyed a week long cruise with Cory and Emily in 2018 at the Islands. They did a great job commandeering the ship, knowing the islands well, and ensuring our needs were met. Their extensive experience on the water made the trip stressless and fun. We enjoyed kiteboarding, snorkeling, fishing, island hopping and more. A great week for sure with good food and conversation, and one we’d highly recommend to anyone. If you want to get away with a wonderful couple who will make you feel at home right away, Cory and Emily are the best!

Our sailboat trip through BVI was by far one of the best vacations I’ve ever been on! I can confidently say that it wouldn’t be this way if it weren’t for our captain, Cory, to show us every memorable location throughout the islands. We laughed, drank, ate great food, fished and scuba dived. I definitely plan on doing this trip again with my wife in the future!

Cory & Emily rocked!!
I was lucky enough to have Captain Cory and Emily in charge of our charter in the Abaco Islands. New to kiteboarding, they made sure to take me to the safest spots and their one on one instruction was personalized and professional. Together, the boat was run like a well oiled machine, they always had a plan and the food was five stars. We caught fresh fish everyday and they took us to the best bars, restaurants and beaches.
Cory has an extensive knowledge about sailing and even taught this merchant seaman a thing or two as he let me skipper the boat.

I have taken three trips with Captain Cory. I can not say enough, what an amazing experience each trip has been. First of all, I had never been sailing before, but Captain Cory’s level of knowledge and experience sailing in the BVIs left me feeling completely at ease that everything was taken care of. He was focused on safety first, and that reassurance allowed us to truly enjoy our vacations. Cory and Emily have such fun and engaging personalities. We enjoyed interacting with them during our trips. They were open to suggestions for menu options and the food was always AMAZING! One of the most memorable days for us, was an impromptu stop at Sandy Cay. A small island that has a short hiking path around it. We quickly realized that we were the ONLY people on the island. Sandy Cay was ours for the day and we enjoyed it to the fullest. Emily even took advantage and turned our lunch into a picnic lunch on the island! We felt like royalty that day. It was so relaxing and such a special treat to feel like you had the island all to yourself. We also enjoyed the activities offered, such as diving the R.M.S. Rhone and kiteboarding lessons! There was never a dull moment on the trip. I think what really stands out the most is the true professionalism that Captain Cory and Emily exhibit at all times. They are what made the vacations memorable for us and we hope we get the opportunity to sail with them again!
