“The week went so fast, thanks to Sara and Mike’s planning and hospitality. We felt very safe in Captain Mike’s sailing hands and very satisfied thanks to Sara’s amazing cooking. They knew all the best coves for sun and fun at the beach. They picked great dive spots and even found a lobster on our last day to serve up for a delicious lunch. We enjoyed Mexican Dominos and shots of fireball. It was an extraordinary adventure!!” -Kelly and Rob
“What an awesome week, we had such a wonderful time on Floatation Therapy. Sara and Mike were amazing - all planning and anticipating our needs before we did. They really went beyond we couldn’t of asked for anything more. We loved the diving especially Tektite and catching a lobster on the last day. We are ready to come back next year and do it all over again!! You also made us forget about covid and all the problems of the world. Couldn’t ask for more! Sara’s meals were delicious and plated beautifully! Thanks for everything!” -Clair and Mark

You did a great job captaining the Floatation Therapy Yacht! Thank you for keeping us face. It was fun to have the wind behind us and raise the jib. We appreciate that you had some ideas of where to go and what to do in the USVI. Thank you for hiking with us and snorkeling with us. Thanks for the many rides on the tender boat to the beaches, snorkel spots, and to dinner, You also listened to our wants and ideas.”
You served us so well! You were a rock star in the galley with creative menus of healthy and delicious meals. I will never forget the stuffed bell pepper lunch the first day, the lemon garlic shrimp & zucchini noodles, crab cakes on Salemon Beach and steak and scallops over cauliflower rice! You work long hours with a sweet spirit to meet our needs and our wants. Thanks, too, for assisting Mike on the vessel and tender boat.”

January 2021 USVI Charters
#FLOATATIONTHERAPY The name says it all. If you are looking for a charter that creates a place of peace whether exhilarating adventures w hikes, dives/snorkeling, or serene bays and beaches basking in the sun Floatation Therapy along with its great crew is the place to be.
They had fresh unique dishes and some fabulous favorites. Cappacinios with breakfast, simple snacks after snorkeling, appetizing lunches, more snacks if you like, and of course, opulent dinner followed by decadent desserts. And always on hand a cocktail or two or three!
The crew, Mike and Sarah, helped us plan and create the experience we wanted. A getaway with no shopping, no work, low carb menu, and no stress. Beginning in Caneel Bay, snorkeling at Henley Bay (awesome), Trunk Bay - beautiful beach to bask in the sun (underwater snorkel trail interesting), Cruz Bay - off to our one dine out, Leinster Bay - hike up to Annaberg Sugar Mill (light hike, history, and butterflies among the Nokia trees), another beautiful restful visit to Caneel Bay among the sea turtles, then off to Salt Pond Bay - light hike through Salt Pond (a lesson in salt and ecology in itself) to Drunk Bay (a transition from simple beauty to splendid rock/ reef/fossil exploration) - with luscious mangroves, rolling green hills - a dramatic sea crashing among the rocks. On my next trip, I plan to hike Ram Heads Trail, which I hear is spectacular.
Thank you, Mike and Sarah, for an awesome adventure and all the therapy I could ask for. You'll see me again!!
