Ryan & Dani Querry
Growing up in the countryside of Ohio, Ryan was introduced to the great outdoors from the very start. Whether he was playing football or baseball, boating on the many nearby lakes, or taking family fishing trips to the lakes of Canada, he could be found enjoying what nature had to offer. While he always knew that he loved the outdoors, it wasn’t until he moved to the Caribbean in 2012 that he found his true passion of being on and in the sea. Upon moving to St. Thomas, Ryan immediately began his journey into sailing and diving. He now holds a 50 ton captains license with a sailing endorsement and is also a certified Dive Master with extensive knowledge of the area’s best dive sites. Ryan loves to share his knowledge of the Virgin Islands and create a memorable experience for all!
Dani has an adventurous spirit that is bound to rub off on those that she comes in contact with. Also growing up in Ohio, she spent her time being very active whether it was playing softball, golfing, fishing or, most of all, being in or near the water. Her first trip to the Virgin Islands at age 17 made her realize that one day she would trade the ponds, lakes, and chlorine for the open ocean. She made that trade in 2012 and has been immersing herself in the Caribbean culture ever since. Her favorite way to spend time is showing her island home to others, allowing them to experience the wonders that it can offer. She has adapted her “comfort food” upbringing to allow her guests to experience not only the beauty of the island but to taste it too!..read more
Ryan and Dani were married in 2012 and immediately set their sights on an adventure. While Dani was familiar with the Virgin Islands, their honeymoon was Ryan’s first visit. It was love at first sight and 4 months after they were married, they were living in the Caribbean, fulfilling their dreams of adventure and sunshine. Their passion for people and love of the water creates both an adventurous and a welcoming environment that is felt by all. After 8 years together their teamwork is impeccable both on the deck and in the galley. Experimenting and providing not just a meal, but an experience, is something that they truly take pride in. Your taste buds are sure to be pleased and your memories to last a lifetime!

Jason G, aboard Catamaran Frangines sailing the British Virgin Islands
It will be hard to accurately put into words, the incredible performance of both Ryan and Dani on our trip. I know I speak for everyone when I say that every aspect of the trip was a success because of them. Between Ryan's calm and professional demeanor as captain and Dani's outstanding work as chef and fist mate, we all had the best time on this vacation. Every member of our party would be happy to give glowing recommendations to this crew.
This is no exaggeration when I say, anyone looking to charter a crew in the BVI would be hard pressed to find a better crew than Ryan and Dani Querry. No one in our entire party would even have the smallest complaint about the way they took care of us. 5 stars on every level.
The boat itself was clean and well maintained.
The food far exceeded all of our expectations. Besides tasting incredible, Dani's presentations resembled eating at a five star restaurant each day. All of us begged for her recipes and plan on cooking them at home. Dani's cooking was the highlight of the trip. Every day she surprised us with her meals and appetizers.
Our pre-planning and preparation with Sailing Directions was perfect. Everything went according to plan.
Ryan and Dani are the best kept secret of the BVI charter crews. Look no further if you need a crew. You just found the best.
Ron S, aboard Catamaran Frangines sailing the Virgin Islands
The entire cruise was fabulous! Ryan and Dani could not have been better. They focused on us and our needs. Rick and I both had some physical disabilities and they were always available to help us in and out of the dinghy, up and down the swim steps, in and out of the blow-up chair, etc.
Dani is a wonderful chef. Not only was her food delicious, it was always presented very attractively.
Frangines sailed like a dream. We had perfect wind every day and the crew handled the boat perfectly. The boat was in great condition when we arrived and was well-maintained the entire ten days. There were many comfortable places to rest, read and relax. Both the US and British Virgin Islands are great cruising areas. We enjoyed the scenery, all the anchorages the crew chose and the shore excursions as well.
Sailing Directions was very helpful and supportive throughout the process. We will certainly recommend your agency to our friends.
Richard N, aboard Catamaran Frangines sailing the Virgin Islands
Dani, your cooking is AMAZING. We enjoyed every meal and we will miss your delicious food when we go home.
Ryan, keep the dab alive!!! Thanks for sharing so much of your knowledge of this area with us and always keeping up with all of our questions.
Thank you for an amazing week. This was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. I really enjoyed the food, I have never eaten so much food in one week. I also loved Ryan's stories about the islands. I hope we didnt scar your eyes with our terrible dancing especially the wobble. I really like how you knew everything about the islands. My favorite part of the trip was Ryan's reaction to my beer cuzzie that said "Yes, I am a bitch, just not your bitch.".I am going to miss playing board games all the time, even at 7 am. I am also really going to miss asking really stupid questions and Ryan's amazing bar tending skills and Dani's Bushwackers. I loved tubing, I had not went in a long time. Thank you for putting up with me being a vegetarian and making me different meals. Make sure the dab stays dead. Sorry about leaving the shower running for three days, we were going to tell you but we kept forgetting. Also, i am sorry for playing the same playlist over and over, I was the only one with a good one.
P.S. Ryan, you look like my gym teacher.
Thank you somuch for an amazing week. Your knowledge of the islands made it easy to never touch my phone. You always knew the best snorkeling spots and bars to go to. Also, the drinks you made were probably the best I've ever had especially the bushwacker. One of my favorite parts was when Ryan told stories. I knew it was going to be a good story when you stopped talking for a second and laughed before continuing. Thanks for also putting up with my annoying questions and my awful dancing to the wobble. I cant thank you enough for not dabbing and keeping it dead. i hope it didnt bother you too much that we were playing board games every second of every day. Another amazing part of the vacation was the food. The toast was incredible and I'm really going to miss it. You did such a good job at making delicious food and everyone enjoyed it. I ate until I was so full that my stomach hurt. This vacation was my favorite one I've ever been on even if it wasn't with my family. You both were always happy to help us with whatever we wanted.
We loved playing cards and exploring/snorkeling the islands. You both were so accomodating and thanks again for taking Jake sailing. (He flipped me and him off of a hobie cat in the BEYC!!!!! LOL.). We wish we could stay for another week and have endless palomas.
Thank you for creating a wonderful atmosphere. You both go out of your way to serve. Ryan, your great knowledge of the islands combined with Dani's cooking talents equals a winning combination. This trip will be a cherrished memory for years to come. We will tell our friends to book a charter with Frangines!!!!
Thank you for taking us to the BEYC - our honeymoon spot. Everything from the lobster at Sidneys, the beautiful beaches on Anegada, the huge Barracuda that Makenna reeled in. the fun day at the soggy dollar, the comfy bean bags for lounging on the front of the boat, the breezy christmas winds, and too many other things we experianced. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommendyou to anyone and everyone.
Yacht Rocking Smooth
Thank you for the trip of a lifetime aborad Frangines. Everything was perfect. The food that Dani prepared was fantastic and the dives that Ryan took the group on were excellent. The dive on the RMS Rhone was the best dive I have ever been on. You made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and I couldnt be happier that we chose to charter with you guys. All the best to you both and hope to meet up with you in the future. Feel free to contact me if you are ever on the west coast.
Thank you so much for making this sailing adventure aboard Frangines so absolutely memorable for us! We shall always remember it as our daughters first official dive trip, and what amazing dives weve had! Emma will learn soon enough how lucky she is to have seen some of the worlds most interesting dive sites including the Rhone (amazing)! With Ryan as our dive master, we always felt safe and secure. Ryan, thank you for your kindness and your patience. You made sure to keep our kids engaged and added so much to their enjoyment. One evening that will definitely stand out is when Ethan made it his mission to catch 16 minnows after he had made a deal with Ryan who promised to then catch a tarpon. Ryan followed through and Ethan could not have been happier!
Our enjoyment aboard Frangines was amplified with all the delectable dishes that were served! What a culinary experience, from presentation to variety to the wonderful flavors. Thank you, Dani, for putting so much thought and effort into every meal. Although you made it look so effortless, your organization and efficiency did not go unnoticed.
Our trip was the perfect combination of discovery and activity, and relaxation. We slept in in the mornings, we enjoyed snorkling, diving, paddle boarding, swimming, and of course the entertaining launches from the Dinghy!
We enjoyed every minute of our trip with both of you. You certainly made sure we were well taken care of. Every day you brought us to a new picturesque bay, which we enjoyed while sipping on your award winning Caribbean Mule or playing a game of Back gammon.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! WE will cherish these memories forever! Who knows we may be back next year when Ethan is old enough to complete his diving certification! It was wonderful getting to know both of you we wish you continued success in your future endeavors.
Thank you so much for an amazing experience! Every day was an adventure, I couldn't have asked for a better time! The food was amazing every meal! I had so much fun getting to know both of you and learning about the culture of each island. My favorite day was riding the scooters in Anegada and visiting the different beaches! Thanks again for the amazing memories that I will cherish for a lifetime!
I don't think there is a better way to explore the BVI's than aboard Frangines with Ryan and Dani! The trip was relaxing with a very cool history lesson every once in a while as we sailed the Caribbean. Thank you for the awesome dives Ryan and the amazing 5 star meals Dani!!! Anegada was the highlight of our trip and we were honored to be considered adventurous enough to take on the scooters throughout the island! What a way to see that unique place. Again, the trip of a lifetime, thank you!!!
The comments of my family says it all but most importantly, confirm what I had hoped for in this trip! It was a trip of a lifetime, we shared, we joked, and we explored all of the best spots! We definitely look forward to joining you again soon! Divemaster Ryan, thank you for making our dives so safe and amazing! Your attention to safety was much appreciated and it allowed Gina to be reassured that her boys were in experienced hands. The shark was cool, the Rhone was the highlight! Truly hope to stay in contact you guys! Oh, and Dani, thank you for the incredible meals and cocktails! Awesome time!
P.S. I still cannot find Mars ;)

Thanks for all of the Pina Coladas and peanut butter sandwiches!
Best vacation ever! Thank you all so much for catering to all of our needs! Dora, Diego, suitcase, wallet, and boots will miss you ;)!
This was the best time I have ever had! Thank you both so much for everything! We will all (except for Beau) miss you and this trip!
I loved the interaction between Ryan and Dani! So sweet! Not only are they a great team together, they made our trip fun. Ryan is really knowledgeable about the area, places to see, shop and eat. I always felt safe in his hands. Frangines is a beautiful boat, it felt so luxurious! As we cruised into the ports, it was obvious that we were on the best boat out there. It was fun to celebrate Dennis's birthday on board. This has been the most relaxing cruise we have ever taken! THE BEST!!!
- Art and Darlyeen
As the mother of these two wild 10 and 12 year old boys, I enjoyed watching them water ski, wakeboard, dinghy launch, and even had fun participating in the Willie T jump, snorkeling, boat jumping, and constant laughter!
The dinners also exceeded our expectations by far - with every meal being a fabulous surprise. The attention to detail with a beautifully set table and the presentation of the meals impressed us time and time again! As we spend our last morning aboard Frangines and reflect on the past week, we are reminded how blessed and lucky we are to have sailed on Frangines and found Ryan and Dani! Returning to our regular lives will certainly be a challenge but it will make planning our next trip back here even better as we will know the relaxation, excitement, adventure, laughter, and tremendous fun that awaits us!
P.S. The Easter baskets were awesome and SO thoughtful! You are the best!

My favorite thing I did was dinghy launch.
My favorite food was the cheesecake.
I liked The Baths and the bubbly pools.
I liked skiing and wakeboarding.
I liked the cool surprises Cap'n Crunch had.
I made great memories.
I would love to come back.

P.S. Thanks for allowing Andy to swabby the deck!
- Debbie and Andy
You two are amazing!!! I will dream about the food for months! You are both so fun and kind and really made us feel at home on your boat! We loved every moment and appreciate all that you did for us!
Thank you for the time of our lives! The food, the pampering, the fun, and the dancing! It made me one happy lady! The trip was absolutely unforgettable! I felt like a queen instead of like a regular woman/mom. We hope to be back sooner rather than later. We love you!!! Please send recipes!
P.S. We loved the place settings and fancy napkin folding "the magic touch"!
- Terry and Susie
Had a fantastic time! Went to a bunch of great places in the BVI and dove the Wreck of the Rhone twice!! Food was excellent and was the best 30 year anniversary ever!
What a great way to experience the BVI! Everything was wonderful! We will certainly do it again!
Paul and Tracy Colonna
We had a wonderful trip in the BVI on Frangines! Food was great and you both are so welcoming and accommodating! When I get home, we will not know how to do anything for ourselves....
We started out on day one... LA folk embarking on an adventure in a more simple and stunningly beautiful surrounding. We could not have known what awaited us or how amazing our guides would be in welcoming us into new settings with open arms and patient hearts. Poor Dani had her work cut out for her with two ultra healthy females who loved their hot showers. I hope they both witnessed that, at least by the end, we had it down. The way you were hosts made us feel like an extended version of our home. As teachers, guides, and amazing chefs, you exceeded our expectations beyond belief. I know it may be hard to be stuck at sea with the same 5 people for 7 days, but I hope we provided you entertainment and some good company along the way. I truly cannot imagine any other guides that would have been more perfect for our multi level needs, crazy group. It was a perfect fit and we will never forget it! - Jen
P.S. Especially thank you for our reheated coffee, attention to the bathroom, and any other quirks you may smile about in our absence.
Never been to the BVI'S but the beauty and people will make a must to come back! It's going to be hard to transition back to regular life again after this wonderful adventure! Our hosts, Captain Ryan and first mate/chef extraordinare made the trip even more special. They made us feel like royalty. Thanks for ensuring we had the great time that we were looking for! - Chris
Awesome time! My favorite part was the tubing. The whole trip was great! I had so much fun. My favorite dessert was the key lime pie! - Kristina, Age 11
Dani had clearly paid close attention to our food, drink preferences, and each meal was well planned and enjoyed by all. She had been initially concerned about a completely vegetarian menu for an entire week but she came through with shining colors!!
Ryan commanded the boat with expertise and was always happy to go on another dive, snorkel, get out the paddleboards, and take my daughter wake boarding. On our dives, I felt completely safe and in competent hands - his review of important concepts and points before heading out for our 1st dive actually assessing our abilities.
As for the boat, accommodations were more than adequate with rooms spacious, well functioning heads, and tons of outdoor comfortable seating. She sailed beauty and even when under motor, the noise was not annoying, as on some other boats.
As for Dani and Ryan - they are a great team with comfortable banter between them always and each of them helping the other one out.
We could not have asked for a nicer crew or more comfortable boat for our week in the BVI's. Thank you Ryan and Dani!! - Jessica Sternthal
What's the best way to spend a week of winter vacation?! A WEEK ON THE FRANGINES WITH RYAN AND DANI!!!! Every day was filled with amazing activities and great food. Meals were incredible and everything seemed to be taken care of. Dani was up to make any meal and Ryan was up to take us on any dive and/or snorkel. Thanks so much for such an incredible trip and such find memories. Do we have to leave???? - Jonah Sternthal
An incredibly grand experience...I doubt any other crew could have been better, S/Y Frangines is a lovely boat, with more amenities than expected. Days of lovely sailing, followed by shelters anchorages and mooring gs provide memories to be cherished. We'll highly recommend it to others at home! And the FOOD!!! - RICK
We had a fantastic time on Frangines with Ryan and Dani. They were awesome hosts and made our family cruise something we'll always treasure. Great food, great sailing, and great destinations! A perfect vacation! - Marin and Jeffrey
This was a Huge event for us as it was the first family vacation and reunion with my husband's side of the family! We had such a great time on Frangines! It started off with Captain Ryan serving the signature Frangines cocktail! The beautiful remodel of the boat was completed just in time for our party⛵️!
Every meal on board was delicious and picture worthy in presentation! A Highlight for us personally was the opportunity to dive at The Bathes! Also Waterskiing on our own private beach at Iguana (Guana) Beach!
We loved all the space on the boat with the beanbags in front it was so comfortable to sail! The attention to detail with our meals, our drinks, and all of our daily activities we're very thoughtful.
Thank you for making our trip so special and comfortable. It will never be forgotten!
Thank you! This was a fantastic time in every way. The food was just perfect. We didn't have Captain and First Mate, but new and endearing friends. THANKS!!
On a scale of 1-10... 15! Capt. Will and Nikki made a perfect team and gave us the time of our lives.
This trip was AMAZING!! The boat was phenomenal. Comfortable. Fun. Spacious for our dance party. Nikki and Will took care of us like no other. The beaches and cays we stopped at were heavenly, and the food NIkki made was over the edge. We could not have asked for a better or more fun trip. Thank you a million times.
This trip was perfect in every way! Every view was a postcard. The wind, the water, & the rain, my favorite spot was the chairs in front on the bow riding the waves, or just relaxing in the hammock. I couldn't have asked for more. Will and Nikki took care of us beyond expectations. The food was amazing! It was delicious and perfectly timed! We awoke every day to fresh brewed ice tea, our belongings lovingly folded- what can I say- pure bliss!
Tim M, aboard Catamaran Frangines sailing the Virgin Islands
Brooke is a fantastic 1st Mate. Always friendly and seeing to our family's every need.
Cliff is a great captain and more on the reserved side, which was not a problem at all. He worked well with the kids teaching them the basics of scuba diving and water skiing.
The accommodations are bigger than they look in the photos. Our family of 5 had no trouble. Brooke kept the cabins clean. The A/C in each room was a plus. Never had any trouble sleeping.
Meals were awesome and plentiful. She even got the girls to try fish.
We didn't realize how close the USVI and BVIs are. The trip was perfect for a 4 night / 5 day tour. The Baths are a must see. Pulling in to different bays to swim, snorkel, and spend the night was very relaxing. Going ashore for an evening was a nice touch.
Sailing Directions offers great communication and excellent service.
