The food was one of our highlights. Lori made the best breakfasts, smoothies, snacks, lunches and dinners. She really went above and beyond. Her 'rendevous wraps' were especially tasty. Sean also made a mean painkiller that kept us coming back for more!

6. Additional comments on your charter?
Where to start...Sean and Lori were incredible. The attention to detail Lori and Sean brought was truly 5 stars. Lori's incredible food, Sean's amazing knowledge of the islands, the history, and the marine life, allowed us to fully appreciate the Virgin Islands and what they have to offer. The food...the drinks...the are no words to describe. We were never left hungry or thirsty and everything was so tasty! My mom always said to finish your plate, well with Lori's dishes, that wasn't even a second thought. The thoughtfulness put in by both Lori and Sean for birthday celebrations, anniversary celebrations really showed how great of people they are and the willingness to go above and beyond (that homemade fudge cake we still all dream about). Thank you both again! You made this trip something we will always remember.
What a wonderful way to escape and relax during a crazy year! Rendez-vous was an amazing boat but Lori and Sean made it a true experience. They went above and beyond to ensure we had the best vacation from the incredible food to their unique knowledge of the islands, they made us feel right at home. We cant wait to come back!
Highlights : Rendez-vous wraps, Sean's painkillers, sunset views, sea turtles at Maho Bay, dinner at Longboard in Cruz Bay, snorkeling at Christmas Cove, tacos at Lime Out.
We were only the 4th group to charter this boat. Everything about it was new/clean/comfortable. Cabins and decks had plenty of room for our family of six to spread out on and Sean and Lori clearly invest a lot of time ensuring the boat is well cared for. Captain Sean projected confidence as a captain and dive master. He was all about safety at all times while making sure we were having fun in the water. Lori is a thoughtful hostess, everything we wanted magically appeared in our hands before we had even asked for it. Her cooking was delicious; snacks and drinks were on point. She even did an intro to scuba for my four kids which they loved. In summary, boat and crew are first class. We would definitely come back and sail on Rendezvous again with this crew!
AMAZING! Everything about Sean and Lori's adventures on Yacht Rendezvous is beyond special. The food was delicious, the views-epic, I highly recommend this trip for any family or friends adventure
We sailed on a relatively new 46' Lagoon, Rendez-Vous, for a full week. Because the BVI‘s remained closed for the pandemic, we sailed around St. Thomas and St. John for the week. We had to scrub our sail to St. Croix because of the winds, but we hope to return to do that next time. We were able to explore a different cove every night and had some nice side trips to St. James, Buck, and Water Islands. The boat was a great size for our family plus the crew was spotless and had all of the components and amenities that we needed to be able to relax and be comfortable while on board. The head/bathroom was fine, the shower was better than expected and the bed was comfortable. We used the AC at night simply because the bedrooms got hot with the windows closed and we discovered that a rain shower in the middle of the night was likely and we couldn’t keep the windows open. The boys sometimes slept on the deck in the open air. Other than doing some land hikes and a little bit of shopping, we spent the entire week on the boat since there was really no need to have to get off the boat – other than to check out the beach or snorkel or to go into town for a few hours. Our crew of Captain Darrin and Chef Isla were fantastic. Captain Darrin was an experienced sailor, and because he grew up locally, had great knowledge of the islands. Every night, we had a meeting with Captain Darrin and Isla to make sure that we knew what the plan was and could provide input into what we were going to do for the next day. Isla is a private chef on St. Thomas, and she cooked amazing food for us every day – which is no small feat with three large boys. There was plenty of food on board, plenty of snacks, and plenty of drinks and alcohol. The only thing we had to stop for was gas and ice a couple of times. There’s also pretty much everything on board for water sports. There were paddle boards, snorkeling gear, and floats. We felt safe in the water the whole week, and the water and snorkeling were incredible as expected. Overall, we had a blast and a perfect vacation. Captain D, and Isla, and Rendez-Vous were amazing. We will be recommending our friends and will be back again. Specific recommendations on what to bring… Bring high SPF sunscreen if you need it. There is typically some on board, but we were glad we had extra. We did not get seasick and didn’t use any Dramamine, but sea bands seem to do the trick for the gentle rolling in the coves. We only packed t-shirts, shorts, flip-flops, swimsuits, sneakers for hiking, and a sweatshirt for the trip home. We were able to carry on and avoid long lines at the airport and be able to breeze through customs by not checking baggage. We found that saved a couple of hours in all directions. Specific recommendations on where to go… We have been to the BVI’s before and expected to miss the snorkeling and beach bars there. We did not. The places around the USVI’s are so beautiful and awesome, we were in a different, amazing spot each day. Just spending time on the boat, swimming, chilling, or reading was a perfect way to spend the day. The Eastern side of St. John is mostly a national park and quiet. There are some great hikes to break up the time on the boat. The hikes to the old sugarcane factory and to Rams Head are fun. The snorkeling off of Little St. James next to the Epstein compound is fantastic. Snorkeling (or diving) over the wreck at Buck Island is cool. We ate one meal off the boat at Greengo’s on St. John and it was great. Fortunately for us, we had Isla’s great cooking on board. Check out Honeymoon Beach on Water Island (Honeymoon Beach on St. John is nice too) and make sure you eat at Dingy’s."
