The crew were amazing. Absolutely exceeded our expectations. We were a bit nervous about it as we had not done a charter before and since it was just the two of us it was important that we spent the week with nice people. They were super fun and friendly and certainly made us feel very comfortable. They accommodated our needs and were flexible to adjust things as the week went on. Can’t say enough good things about them. Learned a lot from Greg about sailing in blue water and we had a great, relaxing vacation.
The boat was immaculate and they keep it in incredible shape and very clean.
The food was fabulous – Vanessa is a very good cook and she was very creative. Great tastes, fresh food and beautifully presented. Very talented.
The BVIs is beautiful area we have not been before and will definitely go back. We will definitely be doing another trip in future – hopefully next year.

This was the best trip ever! You guys were wonderful hosts! The food was exceptional, the locations were beautiful, and the sailing was excellent. Thank you for taking us on our first Blue Water Passage to St Croix! The fishing was great, too. Thank you for the wonderful trip, the wonderful service, and all the marvelous experiences!
David E, aboard Sailing Yacht Blue Passion sailing the British Virgin Islands
We really enjoyed our crew. They were the perfect combination of attentive and fun. We learned so many things from them, it was really fun. They were very charming also. The kids really liked the water sports!
The boat is very clean and laid out well. The inside is very bright. The bathrooms worked really well and were well lit. The front two cabins need more air maybe.
The food was perfect. Kate enjoyed her oatmeal in the mornings. It was so spectacular to have people make meals for you and decide what to eat. Everyone enjoyed the food. I especially liked the fish. Everyone loved the breakfast.
We were very happy. This was a really wonderful vacation. All 5 of us had a good time.

A typical day..
Breakfast will be served in the cockpit. During breakfast a Skipper's brief will take place. Greg will talk about the day to come including the weather, things to look out for and the day's stops. Then lift the anchor and begin the first passage. You can help us sail the boat, soak up the sun with a good book or fish from the stern - the choice is yours.
As soon as we arrive at the lunch stop, dive straight in and enjoy a snorkel safari or kit up in the SCUBA gear and dive into the clear warm waters to see the beautiful marine life. When you have worked up an appetite, come back onboard for a delicious lunch, whether its fresh fish caught an hour before or an exquisite meal prepared by Vanessa the Chef.
Once again, lift the anchor and start the second passage on a plotted course to a sheltered bay for the evening.
On arrival cool off with a swim and have a cocktail while watching the sunset. The dinner will be prepared and served under the stars by the Skipper and Chef.
