I thought the vessel was perfect for the size of our party, and the sleeping accommodations very comfortable and efficient. I really appreciated your ability to think on your feet with the swell that came in from the north, and although we missed the Baths, you came up with another game plan that was terrific. You and Andrea have an excellent knowledge of the key BVI spots and we were glad to experience most of them.
A good mix of responsible seamanship and artful bartending made for a really fun and relaxing time. Would love to do it again sometime!!
Food/Meals = were astonishingly delicious. Fresh and wholesome with taste to die for in each meal: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. In fact, Jen's preparation and presentation of our meals rated FIRST CLASS in all categories! We truly looked forward to her each and every meal!
Captain-ship: Michael knew everything about the waters and the yacht. Our sailing was superb in every way and we felt secure and safe!
Yacht comfort was superb. Four bedrooms for the five of us: My husband and I, and our three adult sons shared accommodations. Ample bedrooms with showers and the yacht was in tip-top condition. Clean and so comfortable with our dining area a perfect setting outside. We enjoyed movies as well as the area inside being well suited for family time, games and conversation.
The waters and islands in the BVI's and USVI's are incredible and so wonderful to enjoy.
Summary: We would love to vacation again with Captain Michael and Jennifer Lang - Ad Astra - and we recommend it highly!

I just wanted to take a few minutes to review our experience on our recent trip on "Crazy Horse". As I mentioned, the Catamaran was in good shape for the age and the crew was exceptional in every way. Michael and Jenn made our trip an extremely memorable one. We have been on a lot of great trips over the years, but all 4 kids said it was the best one we have ever done. Lisa and I agree!! Both Michael and Jenn were very accommodating, attentive and pleasant to be around for the entire week. They sort of became part of our family. Jenn's cooking was unbelievable, each meal was perfect and exactly what we wanted. It was a wonderful surprise to have that kind of cooking and food presentation each day and at every meal. Along with the food, both Jenn and Michael made sure we had any kind of drink we wanted, along with a few of their special drinks each night. As for Michael, he did a great job of moving us around the BVI's. We were able to stick with our itinerary and got to see a lot of great places we had not been to before. He also became a tour guide and family photographer throughout the trip. Our family really appreciated all the photos taken and given to us in a slideshow at the end of our trip. It was a nice touch. They both seem to love what the do and are very passionate about it. So, if I had to rate them, I would give both of them an A+ for how they took care of us and made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. When we decide to come back and sail again, we will definitely search for them and try to join them for another great memory.
Michael and Jenn, Thank You!
Thanks again for setting this up last second. We had a great time and created a family memory that will last a lifetime.
I've never wake boarded in a more beautiful place.
We have traveled with many leaders, but have never experienced such dedicated and capable leaders. A wonderful trip!

Thank you for a beautiful tour of the BVIs. Some of my personal highlights: snorkeling at Cockroach Island, Hanging out at Sandy Cay, view from Hogs Heaven, Sailing from Anegada to Jost, and for culture a dominoes game in some random bar at Cruz Bay. Great meals! Gorgeous waters! Something for everyone ages 18-90!
For Jennifer and Michael,
Here's to living your dream, finding your tribes and traveling outside the system! Thank you for a great week of exploring the BVI, amazing food, and one technical miracle after another! Best wishes with Ad Astra, your own boat Anomalous, and an enjoyable year ahead.

Thank you so very much for guiding us thru our 1st visit to the BVI's. We will remember each and every moment! You far exceeded any expectations we may have had and them much much more!We all appreciated your efforts in taking us to places that we didn't ever know we wanted to see-so many laughs (mostly due to Jan and I being 'so funny." Both of you were so professional and make everything seamless-always calm! We will always remember this adventure! Keep on smiling and living such an adventure everyday together! You are welcome to our home in Canada anytime.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
