The saloon area features separate dining and lounging seating areas, and an entertainment center with stereo system, television and DVD player. A cocktail bar is situated at the entrance of the saloon area, so drinks can be served directly inside or out in the cockpit area. A fully equipped galley and utility area is located starboard. Crew quarters are located forward starboard, next to the galley. GOOD VIBRATIONS accommodates eight guests in four queen state rooms, each with individual temperature controls, flat screen TVs and private ensuite head and shower.

Don Fung Fook
Please accept our invitation to experience what it would be like to choose your vacation of a lifetime aboard catamaran Good Vibrations. Set your watches to tides and the winds, instead of appointments and deadlines. Leave the traffic lights, rush hours and commuting behind. Let the view through crystal clear waters determine whether to snorkel a colorful reef, or fish for tuna or wahoo while cruising the pristine waters of the Caribbean.
CAPTAIN DON FUNG FOOK
Captain Don started sailing when he was 14 in the "Land of Many Waters" - his native Guyana. He moved to the Virgin Islands in 2004 and immediately became involved in the yachting business, operating the motor yacht for the owner of Guana Island. Don is a keen traveler and says he is a "foodie, not that you could tell by the slender shadow he casts! Don regales in playing table tennis - challenge him only if you dare!
CHEF PETRA HESS
Petra Hess is as beloved for her five-star cuisine as for her jovial character. Her friends describe her as having an infectious laugh, an outgoing personality and a generous heart. Petra has always been high-energy. As a child, she won trophies for equestrian jumping and admits she still loves to jump off heights, which perhaps accounts for her pleasure at piloting small planes. She graduated culinary school, studied cooking in Milan, Italy, worked with French and Italian chefs, won bartending awards, including a prestigious competition in Berlin. She has managed and owned restaurants in Paderborne and Bielefld, Germany. ..read more
Today what Petra loves most of all is Caribbean yachting, and sharing her passion with her charter guests. She says that her cuisine is her art. Preparing delicious meals, pairing them with the perfect wine, and seeing her guests' enjoyment, is her pinnacle of success. While she can prepare pretty much everything to perfection, her favorite is fresh, delicately seasoned fish and seafood.
Petra has been getting rave reviews as a yacht chef for 24 years. Charter guests on board Good Vibrations should prepare to gain a few pounds during their charter, or to increase their daily workout. Either way, repeat clients will advise you never to forgo anything that Petra prepares, or you'll be missing out!
CHIEF STEWARDESS JOSEE LABONTE (unavailable summer season)
Josee grew up surrounded by the urban beauty and sophistication of Montreal, Canada. The city is set on an island in the St. Lawrence River, so her love of water is no surprise, nor that her favorite pastimes were fishing, swimming and boating. When Josee has free time she still loves water sports, but also enjoys cooking/eating, reading, gardening and ornithology.
Josee speaks fluent French and English and loves the French lifestyle. She enjoys the British Virgin Islands for their beauty, fun places to go and warmth of the local people. St. Barths is also a favorite, a French island where she can feel truly at home. Josee has always been a traveler and has extensive experience in the hospitality industry. She is an expert at anticipating the needs of her guests and insuring that they are happy.

Stacy & Brian
Its the last night of our charter, sailing around the BVIs on Good Vibrations with Captain John, Petra and Josee. We had such an amazing week I dont know where to start!
Since the moment we stepped on the boat, my husband and I, along with 3 other couples that are all good friends, have had an awesome time. Everything to do with the boat was expertly handled by John and we felt so safe with him at the helm. Petra was such an amazing chef; the food was just to die for. Josee as our hostess was always available and kept things neat and tidy and was the perfect bartender. The three of them work so well together and kept us entertained all week. They took us to the best places in the island. We could not ask for a better vacation. We cant wait to come again! Thank you!
This has been the trip of a lifetime from the beautiful scenery to the amazing cooking. The snorkeling was awesome and we were able to see all the places we wanted. We so appreciated all the hospitality & fun. Hope to come back again soon!

Jim and Kelly
The crew was first class. They knew exactly where to go, when to go and what to do when we got there. It was amazing to us how many folks knew Petra and how many folks she knew. On shore, or passing another yacht in the water, many folks seemed to know here and wished everyone well. Here cooking skills are incredible. We NEVER had a meal that was not over the top. She was great.
Jose' was amazing. She was always there to get us whatever we needed and would never let our glass run dry, no matter what it was filled with. She truly cared and was concerned about our happiness and well-being. Wonderful mate.
Captain Don was a breath of fresh air. He kidded around and was always working on something aboard to make it better. He was more than accommodating in taking us ashore or wherever we wanted to go. He was a history book of the homes on the islands and the vessels in the water.
Again, I cannot stress enough how great our trip was. We will definitely plan another. Maybe this time with our children. Thank YOU for doing everything in your power to make this trip possible.
Steve & Claire
You guys rock. You always knew where to go and what to do and how to do it when we got there! You're a great team. We love you
Steve and Claire
This has been a fabulous trip. The islands, the food, the company has been wonderful. Each stop became our next favourite so each time and stop was better than the previous. Our trip that was equal was white water rafting the Grand Canyon twice. You took such great care of us each day.
Thank you for a wonderful trip. Debbie and Chuck.
Thank you again for taking such good care of us.
Dave, Michelle, Sophie, Ron Sonia, Sarah and Jacob.
Don was also a joy - calm and competent, thoroughly knowledgeable, always in good humor, terrific company
