 A Perfect Honeymoon
Thank you for a perfect honeymoon aboard HYPNAUTIC! From exploring new islands (Cooper) to scooter adventures (Anegada), everything was absolutely wonderful. Pixie, we really appreciate how you anticipated our needs and cooked the most amazing meals. You set the bar really high for when we return home! Thank you for your advice and guidance on this trip. You are so much more than just the chef. Jose, we learned more from you in the past 7 days than the past 7 years! Thank you for making this trip both fun and educational- even though we didnt master the couples knot.

We will definitely be back - hopefully on an annual basis! Cant imagine sailing with anyone else - you are the best!~Jenn and Mikes Honeymoon

 We Felt Right At Home
Thank you so much for a wonderful charter! Weve been wanting to do this for years and it did not disappoint. The food was great and the hospitality perfect. We felt right at home from the time we stepped aboard. What more can I say than we had a perfect vacation. Thank you for catering everything to exactly what we wanted. - Solis Charter

 We appreciate Your Hard Work and Dedication to Your guests.
Life is short and precious. So too was our adventure wth Jose and Pixie. It takes a rare personality to master the confluence of professional Captain/Mate, colorful local historian, gourmet chef, wonderful conversationalist and friend! We appreciate your hard work and dedication to your guests. The seed has been planted for many more future sunsets in the islands. At our next 10 year anniversary well walk the plank at the Michael Beans show!

- Taylor Charter

 A Winning Combination for an Awesome Vacation
Words cannot describe the memories we take away in our heart from the moment we boarded the HYPNAUTIC. Capt Jose and Chef Pixie welcomed us with open arms. The attention to detail and wonderful service provided by the crew was better than we had ever expected. Joss planned or route based on our needs and wants perfectly. He was knowledgable about every place we traveled and provided great local stories. He took time to play games with the kids every night and was a great bartender for the adults. Pixies food was absolutely delicious. Our family looked forward to each meal. No matter what we needed the crew was there to make sure it happened. They are a winning combination for an awesome vacation.The Stewarts will be back!!! - Stewart Family

 The Parents Had as Much Fun as the Kids

Our week aboard your boat was wonderful! We no have so many great memories. The food all week was terrific and Pixie was great at making food for the more picky eaters." Jose was filled with knowledge about all the islands and knew the best places to go for our family. Jose always kept the kids busy with snorkeling, skiing and tubing but the parents had as much fun as the kids. The Margaritas were epic and every morning we awoke from our deep slumber to the smell of a delicious breakfast. According to our kids if anyone did a trip like this on any other boat with any other crew they would just be insane! - Bowman Family

 An AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, ONCE IN A LIFETIME Vacation!

Thank you both for a fabulous 40th Birthday celebration charter! We all had a super great time. The snorkeling was incredible and all of the different places yall showed us were perfect. Pixle always kept us fed with delicious and creative recipes. As a foodie I especially appreciated that. This was an AMAZING, INCREDIBLE, ONCE IN A LIFETIME vacation and worth every penny! You two are wonderful hosts and I will always remember the week we spent together with great fondness. - The Jacksonville Girls Charter

 You are both great representatives of the Caribbean way of life!
Our week aboard exceeded our expectations. We felt at home from day one and appreciated the friendly atmosphere. Pixies menu was exceptional. Jose has so much knowledge about every aspect of sailing and the islands. Everything was perfect...the weather, snorkeling, food, accommodations, conversation. You are both great representatives of the Caribbean way of life!- Pierre and Vicki
 This Journey Has Brought the Pirate Out in Me!
This has been the best trip of my life without exception. Checked another one off the bucket list. We love our trips to the mountains but this journey has brought the pirate out in me! We couldnt have asked for a better crew in the most beautiful place on the planet. Pixie, the food was absolutely amazing. Cheers to you...until we meet again!

February 16-23, 2016 - Anderson Charter

  This Truly Has Been a Life Changing Event

Thank you so much for all you did for us this trip. The food was the best! Ive never felt more safe and welcomed...EVER! We wish you guys all the best and hope we can be friends in the real world. There is no other crew I would have wanted to be a part of this than you guys. Thank you for taking us under your wing and then letting us fly! Than you for opening our eyes and giving us a whole new perspective on life. This truly has been a life changing event.

~Jansen Charter

 It Was A Fabulous Journey
What a wonderful week we had on Hypnautic with you and our friends Al and Anne. Als said it all in his note to you, we could just write ditto! We want to add a special thank you to you both to being so friendly and attentive to our every need. You catered the trip to Lynn who had sailed a lot and Frank who was a first timer.

We really appreciated how knowledgeable you are in explaining the history of the various sites and also when you admitted not knowing the answers to some or our questions. Jose you provided a steady even ride even when there were swells.

Pixie you have endless energy, Thank you for the delicious meals compelling us to eat more than usual. Five meals a day: fruit, breakfast, lunch, appetizers (enough for a meal) and dinner. Every thing was yummy and remarkable considering the one oven.

Other highlights included great snorkeling. You took us to the best spots - we saw turtles, rays squid, tarpon, barracuda and loads of beautiful Caribbean fish. Thank you for always bringing our toys to us, the standup paddle boards were a hit. You found a dancing spot for Al and we all enjoyed that and the quiet coves for peaceful evenings. Thank you for expertly timing our passages so that we hit the sites before the crowds arrived.

All in all it was a fabulous journey. Thanks to the two of you! ~Lynn and Frank

 Your Continuous Level of High Service Made Our Trip Special
Thank you for a tremendous week. You are superb hosts. Anne and I embarked on the trip with Lynn and Frank, two close friends who we rarely see. He had hoped to enjoy a fun and relaxing week. Our expectations were exceeded. No matter which watersport we wanted, snorkeling, water skiing, paddleboarding, kayaking or swimming, the necessary gear magically appeared upon request and disappeared upon our return.

Then there was the food: plentiful and delicious and hard to resist! Pixie is a great cook. The best fish tacos on the planet, subtly flavored mouth watering parmesan onion biscuits and Pixies special peanut butter pie are just a few examples of the countless great dishes we enjoyed for our four meals each day. If you want to lose weight a week on this boat is not the way to do it!

We always felt comfortable, and we loved being pampered and appreciated having a captain who quietly kept us safe. Your willingness to accommodate our every desire and your continuous level of high service made our trip special. It was remarkable how you could magically appear to satisfy our every whim yet completely vanish when we wanted to be alone on a craft about the size of a garage. I could go on and on but the simple fact is we had a wonderful week and the two of you played a huge part in making that happen. Thank you for a such a special week.~Al and Anne

 The Most Wonderful Honeymoon
From the bottom of our hearts , we thank you for the most wonderful honeymoon we could have ever imagined ! It far exceeded our expectations ! We came as strangers , we leave as friends !Until next time. ~Dan & Leigh Anne

 A Tremendous Team
Thank you both so much for making our Honeymoon " THE BEST VACATION EVER " !

We so appreciated all you did for us throughout the week .We couldn't have lucked out on a better Captain + Chef .You 2 are amazing people and a tremendous Team ! It was a pleasure getting to know you both and we look forward to sailing with you again in the future, Frederick + Kathryn

 Memorable Experience!
We had a fantastic honeymoon week aboard. It was our first time doing a term charter and it turned out to be a great experience. The weather was great.. we improved our snorkeling, paddle-boarding and tarpon feeding skills. Beautiful sunsets and the right balance of adventure and relaxation. Pixie cooked amazing meals, and Jose was extremely knowledgeable about BVI and sailing, and we felt safe the entire trip. Thank you for a truly memorable experience!
 Thank you!
Great weather, great food, beautiful islands and water...shared with bet friends! How Blessed we are. Thanks for taking such good care of us. It truly is paradise here. Thanks again!
 Special week on Hypnautic!
Truly a trip of a lifetime! The BVIs were beautiful but it was your warm hospitality and fun nature that made our week on the HYPNAUTIC so special.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

March 22-29, 2014

March 15-21, 2014

Leo and Amy - You guys are Great! We couldnt have asked for better crew. Adventures on land & sea..you took care of all of our needs. Truly a trip of a lifetime!

March 1-9, 2014

 Thoroughly Enjoyed the trip
Where to start....We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on HYPNAUTIC. Leo and Amy are thoughtful hosts..prepared for everything you wish to do...and they are fun! Your attention to our needs was wonderful...were not surprised you are always booked!We would definitely do this again and recommend HYPNAUTiC to our friends

Up on the bow with the wind and water in our faces..

Topping the evening off with six bottles of wine and Shut the Box

Island hopping with the best crew...ever

Many places we had not seen before..

Amy, your cooking was amazing. Everything was delicious...

This is it, Leo!

Every day better than the last...

Loved every single minute!

Yes, we will be back!

... The Best Vacation Ever

 The trip was too short!!
What great hosts - never a thought or desire that you had not already anticipated. You made the trip fantastic! Amy, you really should publish a cookbook - everything you made was so good and healthy...and the presentation was terrific! Leo, you kept us safe and took us to so many wonderful spots. I do have one complaint..THE TRIP WAS TOO SHORT! We would have loved more time with the both of you, the yacht and the water. I will always remember my 65th.

February 2-9, 2014

 Everything was wonderful!
The charter was awesome! Everything was wonderful! You are the perfect crew. This was more than a charter....this was an opportunity to make incredible new friends. God Bless.

January 7-15, 2014

 Great Boat...Fantastic People

New Years 2014

 Can\'t wait for our next adventure!
We cannot believe how quickly our week of sun and fun passed. Once again we cant thank you enough for your laughter, hospitality and amazing week of island exploring. John was very excited to again practice his dinghy rescue skills...and Amy dont be surprised if you see a few of your delicious dishes are copied on my Facebook page! We cant wait to plan our 3rd adventure together!

December 8-15, 2013

 We have to say this has been the best by far!
This has been our 7th summer holiday on a yacht and we have to say this has been the best by far. USVI and BVI make a difference. The weather, the water, nature, the wind, the fish...but what made the real difference, though, was you two. You treat your guests in a natural manner that makes you feel at home from the first minute. Amy, your food is great...made with love...and follows the preferences of your guests...top quality. Thank you. Leo, your recommendations were always spot on, always preserving relax as your first objective and you were never tired...very impressive. Amy and Leo, you together make us look forward to repeating this experience again.

July 1-13, 2013

 Exceeded our wildest expectations!
This trip was a bucket list adventure and exceeded our wildest expectations. Leo are a welcoming captain and eager to tutor a bunch of one time sailors. Amy, your outstanding meals matched your labors on the boat. We could not have found better hosts. We look forward to seeing you again.

June 23-30, 2013

 We truly couldn\'t have asked for more!
Its hard to put into words the experience we had this week. From the second we talked on the phone, and then when we first met, we knew wed chosen the perfect people to share our 20th Anniversary and first time in the BVI. Amys meals and instant friendship will never be forgotten. Leos knowledge put us completely at ease knowing we could do as much or as little as we wanted was perfect. Crazy memories of the Soggy Dollar and Willy Ts! We truly couldnt have asked for more.

June 8-15, 2013

 The week has definitely exceeded our very high expectations!
Thank you for a fabulous sail around the BVI. It has been a pleasure and delight in getting to you know both. We feel as if you are now part of our family. Leo, our boys will never forget you letting them be your crew mates. The week has definitely exceeded our very high expectations.

May 22-29, 2013

 Each day got better as you took us to different hot spots!
We had an absolute blast on HYPNAUTIC. The boat is awesome and more importantly you are both fantastic people. You did everything possible to ensure we had a great time. Each day got better as you took us to different hot spots.You guys made us feel like family and by far one of the best vacations weve ever taken and will certainly be back.Food and drinks were delicious and the photos we took are priceless.

May 4-11, 2013

 We were still surprised with new places weve never seen and gourmet dishes weve never had!!!
To our dear Leo and Amy, we have chartered HYPNAUTIC 3x and you both continue to exceed expectations. I guess when you discover your favorite hotel/restaurant you really dont want to go anywhere else...it now even comes equipped with great friends. We were still surprised with new places weve never seen and gourmet dishes weve never had. Waterskiing in the beautiful private cove was the tops! It was truly a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous experience.

April 25 - May 3, 2013

 So many fun memories!
Dear Amy and Leo. I cant even begin to tell you how much this trip has meant to us. It has been one of the best experiences of my life. So many fun memories. You guys are the best. We love you both.

April 16-23, 2013

 Love Amy, Love Leo, Love HYPNAUTIC!
We loved you on Day 1, its Day 5 and Im eating the most amazing anitpasta salad, drinking great wine and laughing. This was an amazing Honeymoon. We laughed so hard with amazing friends. Perfect! Love Amy, Love Leo, Love HYPNAUTIC!

April 9-13, 2013

 Such a fantastic job attending to every detail!
Thank you so much for a fabulous 8 days. You did such a fantastic job attending to every detail. Thanks for beng open and sharing with us. It was great getting to know you and sharing our stories with you. Leo, thanks for the waterskiing...WOW! Amy, the food was great and you make it seem effortless. Your wooden sign in the salon says it perfectly....Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends.

April 1-8, 2013

 Great food, Great Boat, Great Waters!
Many thanks for such a fine week aboard HYPNAUTIC. You were both such perfect hosts. It is great to find people who are so good at something and who enjoy it so much. You are both such good company and the experience was terrific. Great food, Great Boat, Great Waters!

March 22-29, 2013

 Thank you for welcoming our family as new friends!
Captain Leo and Admiral Amy we cant thank you enough for an awesome week. It was a great experience and we all want to thank you for welcoming our family as new friends and members of the HYPNAUTIC crew. We especially enjoyed the snorkeling and our SCUBA experience, exploring the islands and beaches, and grandma taking a hand at the wheel.

March 10-17, 2013

 So wonderful, So fantastic, So great, So stupendous and So magical!
Captain Leo and Chef Amy this trip was So wonderful, So fantastic, So great, So stupendous and So magical to be aboard HYPNAUTIC to celebrate both our anniversary and a 70th Birthday. It was truly a special fun filled week with you both that made it So exciting.

March 2-9, 2013

 We feel like we have gained two wonderful friends!
We cant thank you enough for making our honeymoon such a memorable experience. We will never forget the full moon party, our massages at Bitter End, our lobsta dinner and dancing with Sammy (with a capital S) and being part of your first whale sighting on the boat.We feel like we have gained two wonderful friends.

February 22-March 1, 2013

  To say every aspect was perfect would be an understatement!!
Wow, I honestly cant begin to describe what an exceptionally awesome experience we had cruising on HYPNAUTIC. To say every aspect was perfect would be an understatement. Having sailed before in the BVI, on the very best yacht (we thought), it was unimaginable that our experience then could be trumped....but you did it!

February 4-11, 2013

 The itinerary was great and Amys cooking was amazing!!
We had a great time and would like to thank you for the awesome memories. The itinerary was great and Amys cooking was amazing. Thanks for hanging out with us for family game night. Your hospitality and generosity will stay with us forever.

January 18-25, 2013

 Im not sure if we can ever say Thank You enough!
To say this was the best family vacation ever is an understatement. You have not only been incredible hosts, you have become lifelong friends. Im not sure if we can ever say Thank You enough.The food was phenomenal...the scenery fabulous..but your kindness, generosity and hospitality will never be forgotten.THANK YOU,THANK YOU.

December 21-28, 2012

 We had high expectations for this trip and you both exceeded them by many counts!
Leo & Amy, We had high expectations for this trip and you both exceeded them by many counts! We could not have imagined a more exhilarating week of sailing, amazing food and fantastics conversations. The boat is more beautiful and comfortable than we could have imagined. Sleeping on board each night and looking up at the stars through the hatch was an unforgettable experience. Thank you for opening yourselves up and sharing your experiences here in the islands. I hope that can do this for many years to come so we can keep building up the great stories.

December 8-15, 2012

 This was the most amazing....!!!
Best week ever!! I know everyone remembers their honeymoon but this was the most amazing way to spend it...barely wearing shoes, waking up and diving in the sea...swimming with turtles, lobster with Sam (with a capital S..the man with a plan). Amys amazing meals, Leos Vodka Tings and navigation skills (even under water!) and the most genuine hospitality. You two really made the trip. You work so hard to make sure we had the best time ever...and we did! We wish you many easy charters and the most happiness. We will definitely call you when we are back in February - we entered as strangers and left as friends!

P.S. If you cant read my writing, blame the Willy T Shot Ski :-)

November 24-December 1, 2012

 What a wonderful week!
Captain Leo and Admiral Amy...What a wonderful week to put life back in perspective. Our batteries are fully charged, ready to meet civilization but we will be back! Thanks for your patience, good humor, wonderful cooking, attentiveness, and superlative hosting. Please get HYPNAUTIC to New England this summer so we can do all this over again...where the lobsters have claws.Some people come into your life for a short time....you are part of it forever. Thanks for a spectacular 15th Anniversary renewal of vows.

 The week was a true escapee!
Leo and Amy, The week was a true escapee! It feels as if we were on HYPNAUTIC for a month by what we did. Our experience could no have been any better. We look forward to seeing each of you again...even if the next time might have to be on land. However, we do hope to spend another week on HYPNAUTIC next year. Thanks for everything!

 One of the BEST vacations we ever had!!
Six women, all of us related, and all with very strong opinions. Yikes! What were we getting ourselves into?? Well, what we got ourselves into was one of the BEST vacations we ever had!! Im pretty sure we used every water toy aboard - tube, skiis, snorkels, kayaks, floats - some were first timers and what great memories! Amy, your meals were perfect - you are truly a miracle worker. Leo, you are an awesome captain and a 1st Class guy! Thank you for making us feel so welcome. I can say that none of us want to go home...

 A trip of a lifetime!
After 10 years of marriage we treated ourselves to now what we know as a trip of a lifetime. This trip has exceeded our expectations in every way possible. Words cannot describe the total enjoyment we have felt. We are heavy eaters and every meal was VERY satisfying. Amy you have a special talent in the kitchen. I hope we can take many more trips on the HYPNAUTIC in the future.I have never felt more comfortable and catered to before. We wish you all the best in the world.

June 3-8, 2012

You work endlessly to ensure your guests have a great time. You welcomed us into your home and treated us like royalty. We will gladly return for a future voyage and will recommend HYPNAUTIC to everyone!

 Most awesome honeymoon!
We had the most awesome honeymoon. Thanks so much for making the start of our marriage so special! We are leaving with many few brain cells than we arrived. Please visit us when you are back North. We would love to host you for a few days. We will certainly be back with some great friends to share another week together.

 The journey of our lives!
Thank you for the journey of our lives. It was Fantastic! The memories of this trip will last forever. We appreciate the manner the entire trip was conducted. Leo and Amy became our good friends and were unbelievable hosts. Hopefully we will be able to do this again someday.

April 7-14, 2012

 Cant possibly get any better!
I couldn't have dreamed up a better week than this. Every moment I thought it cant possible get any better but it did! The location, the activities, the food and the companionship were all exceptional. Leo and Amy make the perfect team. Thank you for the best vacation I have ever had.

The HYPNAUTIC is so comfortable and Leo and Amy are amazing. This vacation has been relaxing and fun and filled with delicious meal and drinks. I cant wait to be back.

I have never felt so comfortable, relaxed, and at home on a vacation before. From the delicious food and drinks to all of the unique places we visited and Amy and Leos great company, there isnt one thing I would change.

A lifetime of memories in less than a week! Everything was perfect would be correct but it doesn't address the heart and soul and love we experienced this week. Amy and Leo - you felt like family. Thank you.

April 1-5, 2012

 We now consider them family!
Best trip ever. Leo and Amy made us feel right at home the minute we stepped aboard. They are so generous and kind. So much so that we now consider them family. Life is filled with experience and Leo and Amy have given us a memorable experience that will last a lifetime and desire for more good times together. The connection was quick, the pace relaxed, the experience was deep. Thanks is just too small a word.

March 17-23, 2012

 This is the most amazing HYPNAUTIC vacation!
Our second time on HYPNAUTIC was even better than our first! This time we booked 9 nights instead of 7 because we felt cheated with the travel days and what a great idea that was. This is the most amazing HYPNAUTIC vacation anyone can imagine. The Virgin Islands are amazing, but the crew is what makes the difference. Leos sailing skills are superb and he custom tailored the itinerary perfectly to our tastes Amys culinary delights will please the most discriminating palette. They both aim to please and exceed expectations. We look forward to many more vacations aboard with Leo and Amy.

February 19-28, 2012

 HYPNAUTIC!!!
Our very first of hopefully many weeks to come on the HYPNAUTIC. We had no idea what to expect, but we were blown away by the professional , caring , attentive, accommodating crew! :-) We now think of the crew as our dear new friends. THERE ARE NO ACCIDENTS. We ended up on this boat with Leo and Amy for a reason and we were truly blessed. THANK YOU is hardly enough to express our appreciation. We are going home 2 very spoiled Michiganders. We wish Leo and Amy continued success in charters and in live and love!

February 1-8, 2012

 \"What an amazing experience\"
. Leo and Amy are tremendous hosts - totally accommodating, generous and kind. They anticipated our wants/needs in a way that no other place/trip in our experience has. Leo is the best captain - knowledgeable about all local sites, and excellent sailor and all around fabulous guy. He put together a fantastic itinerary understanding exactly what we were looking for. Amy is a complete magician in the kitchen - how she manages to produce restaurant quality (in taste and presentation) in a galley that size is beyond us. Every day was a new adventure from snorkeling to water-skiiing to cock-tailing (a lot..thanks to Leo's tasty concoctions). Leo and Amy were like family at the end. WE look forward to staying in touch as they were sincerely great people who really cared that we had a wonderful time. The boat was spotless and very spacious.

January 7-14, 2012

 Beyond our expectations!
Leo and Amy gave us spectacular 7 nights and 8 days of heaven. Their competence and attention allowed us to completely relax, enjoy nature and bond as a family. The charter went beyond our expectations. Captain Leo and Chef Amy could not have been more accommodating...so pleasant, calm, funny and interesting. This was our first charter and I know it will not be our last given the joyous time we had. We will be back!

December 27-January 3, 2012

 A dream!!!
The food was simply incredible and the kindness, hospitality and care for our comfort and attention to every detail made it a holiday beyond compare. HYPNAUTIC was a dream. The boat was immaculate and well stocked. Leo and Amy are incredible hosts and new friends. Amy understood we are discerning diners. In regard to meal prep, we upped what in Olympic diving is called 'the degree of difficulty' with Elyse's gluten allergy. Amy earned Straight A's nonetheless.

December 18-26, 2011

 Memorable from the moment we came aboard!
HYPNAUTIC was memorable from the moment we came aboard. Leo and Amy anticipate your every need. More gracious hosts cannot be found. Leo and his puzzles..Amy and her amazing food...including her sensitivity and extra preparation to accommodate a vegetarian in our group. A full moon party, great snorkeling, blue skies and clear water are just a few of the things we enjoyed experiencing. We look forward to our ''2nd time''!

Reviews for Hypnautic with previous crew:

Jose & Pixie were AWESOME. The menu exceeded our expectations. Pixie was amazing. Very happy with service from Sailing Directions.

Robert W, aboard Catamaran Hypnautic sailing the Virgin Islands

I have literally made life-long friends. Jose and Janet were extremely friendly and fit in very well with our group. We loved spending time with them. Both were very attentive and seemed to know exactly what we needed at any particular time. I very much enjoyed staying up late and talking with Cap'n Jose about various topics. Everything we wanted was provided. Jose and Pixie offered us very good suggestions as we made our way around the islands.

Hypnautic was very well maintained. It was amazing to me how clean Jose and Pixie were able to keep the yacht with the six of us constantly moving about, snacking, drinking, lounging, etc. I was very impressed by this. I think my favorite aspect was our mealtime and all of us sitting around the outside table. Lots of great conversation. I also very much enjoyed being up on the bridge with Cap'n. I loved the wind in the face and the amazing views.

Pixie is an amazing chef. I could tell that heart and soul was put into each dish. I enjoyed talking to Pixie about how she came up with some of the dishes and how she likes to take time to think of and practice making new dishes. I can't wait for more Pixie meals!

The Virgin Islands couldn't have been better. It was exactly what we wanted. The only thing I wish I had different was MORE TIME!

This trip was well worth every single penny. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves to disconnect from the real world and just relax and be stress free for a week. Great re-charge of the internal batteries that are required to operate in life.

Aaron H, aboard Catamaran Hypnautic sailing the Virgin Islands

Jose and Janet were definitely friendly, knowledgeable, attentive, and accommodating. They went above and beyond my expectations. They were always asking if we needed anything, and were happy to respond to any questions or requests that we had. I couldn't imagine a better pair, and I look forward to sailing with them again!

The Hypnatuic was clean, comfortable, and well ventilated. Jose and Janet were up and about cleaning the boat every day. My favorite aspect of the yacht was definitely the dining area, where we spent time at least three times a day haha. Many wonderful conversations were had, and we loved getting a chance to watch Janet cook through the window! I also loved the bedding, super comfy, and plenty of storage space.

The food was no words short of AMAZING. Janet was such a great cook and always ran on time. The dining area was always clean, accessible, and well presented. Janet did a great job of creating a menu of items that suited our needs and fit our requests. There was always enough! And a great variety :)

We saw so much in what seemed like such little time, it was great! We hit all of the spots on our list within reason without feeling rushed. Every day was new and exciting, just as we requested.

This was a life changing experience. To stay a week on a boat may seem intimidating to some, especially myself who had never slept aboard a boat before. It was completely worth it, I can't imagine seeing the islands in any other way. Definitely pack your Dramamine if you experience a little sea sickness like I do! But it was completely manageable and did not take away from the experience.

Our group will certainly be requesting to sail with Hypnautic again.

Aaron H, aboard Catamaran Hypnautic sailing the Virgin Islands

The crew were outstanding, over and beyond the call of duty to make sure all our desires were met.

Hypnautic is very clean, not only when we arrived but they were cleaning daily to keep everything attractive.

The trip was fabulous. Leo and Amy are great hosts. Everything was perfect.
