Guest aboard Maha on June.3rd charter
Wow! What a week! Total relaxation, and a fabulous time aboard the Ma Ha! Harvey and Marley did an outstanding job of making us all feel totally at home, pampered, well-fed and taken care of. The kids loved tubing and snorkelling in the many beautiful bays we visited. The sailing, the service, the activities and the scenery all add up to an amazing week we shall never forget. Thank you, Harvey & Marley, you were both great hosts! Cheers, Kara, Richard, Parker, Logan and Riley
Wonderful family vacation! Having the Deniston/Hu clan together for a week was a special birthday treat. Only made better by the Ma Ha, Harvey, Marley and the beautiful scenery. Thanks for treating us so royally! Safely travel your dreams. Kathie & Andy

I just can’t find the right words to describe this special week. The boat is so well maintained, and our hosts were so incredibly thoughtful and accommodating, it truly was paradise. The food was incredible and was served up with Marley’s beautiful smile. She is an extraordinary chef. No words to describe how fortunate we feel to have spent this last week on Ma Ha under the professional care of Captain Harvey, who is part tour guide, part activity director, part bar tender and excellent table setter!! He also plays a mean game of Zilch!! Thank you, new friends, for a magical week!! Dave & Becky
Some people live life, and others illuminate it. So grateful how Marley and Harvey illuminated our sail. They never made it feel like it was a job for them – an experience that was truly incredible. The kindness that they showered us with from delicious meals to all the activities Harvey supplied us with, truly we humbly received. We were blessed beyond measure, our cup runneth over. Dr Rob & Sheri
First sail in The BVI could not have been better. Ma Ha – Amazing, perfectly maintained and a beauty with a big blue sail. Captain Harvey – Looked out for us, and made every moment of our trip great! Captain, bar tender, tour director, friend, he does it all. Marley – we want her to write a book of her recipes. Every meal was delicious and beautifully served. The entire trip has exceeded our expectations. Thank you Marley & Captain Harvey. Ralph & Patti.
These were the good times, and Marley & Harvey helped us to have them. Marley – talented and creative dishes, scrumptiously omitting an ingredient to which I am allergic. Captain Harvey – His knowledge of the area is profoundly helpful. Possibly his greatest strength is a calm, positive and delightful demeanour, and he has regard for our safety. Ward & Tatelle.

What an incredible week!! Everything about our charter exceeded our expectations. The Ma Ha is a beautiful boat and was very clean and well maintained. Harvey & Marley went above and beyond in every way. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, they proactively anticipated all our needs and wants, Harvey knew all the perfect places to take us, and they were always professional and fun! We will remember this trip forever and hope to return! Thank you! Greg & Lisa
This week has been an incredible adventure! Every stop ashore has been wonderful, from beaches to snorkelling to bars. The BVI is so beautiful and colourful. It has been very fulfilling to spend so much time with my family. We went SCUBA diving for the first time, which was the experience of a lifetime. The Ma Ha is an awesome boat for us to spend this time on. It is very well maintained and in perfect condition. Harvey & Marley are wonderful!! I didn’t feel like I was on a vacation with crew, but with friends instead. I will only want to travel the BVI if Harvey & Marley are aboard. Scott & Leigh
This week has been one of the most incredible adventures of our life. From the very outset Harvey & Marley were incredible hosts, and the week only got better from there. They truly have felt more like friends than hosts. Harvey is an incredible Captain and tour guide, and Marley’s cooking was to die for! When we return to The BVI in the future, there is no doubt whose boat we want to be on. Cheers!! Chris & Lindsey
In 2011 Wayne & I sailed with Harvey & Rabbit. My dream after that was to bring my sons and their wives down here to experience paradise. This week fulfilled all my dreams and more. We miss Rabbit, but Marley has stepped up to where Rabbit left off. Wonderful food, clean rooms, beautiful views and good drinks. We will be back!! Lisa & Wayne
Guest on charter for April.22nd charter
Now this is what I call a vacation!!! We had an amazing time! Snorkelling, sailing, tubing, or just hanging around the deck, Harvey and Marley made our time on board the Ma Ha one to remember. Harveys’ pirate skills (and Star Wars ones too) are going to be missed. Marley’s yummy meals and great company made us feel at home. Thank you!! Ericka and Peter
Wish we could stay longer. Thanks for all the fun sailing. The kids really enjoyed all the toys… some of the adults did to. The never-ending supply of food and drink was much appreciated. Marley, thanks for accommodating the picky eaters. I liked the watermelon gazpacho and the breakfast sandwiches. HB, Emma, Hadar and Matthew.
On this beautifully blue week, we have all had a great time with the tubing, paddle boarding and other fun stuff. The best thing however was making friends with Harvey and Marley. Marley has done a good job making good food and Harvey has also done a good job keeping us kids distracted with fun stuff. Thank you whoguys, so much for this lovely week. Ben J

Dear Marley & Harvey
Thank you so much for an amazing vacation aboard the Ma Ha. At first I wasnt sure if having our entire family trapped on a boat was a good idea but it ended up being an incredible experience and my favorite getaway yet!! The food was fantastic and I still dont know how you were able to prepare it all in a little boat kitchen. I had so much fun snorkelling, jumping off the boat, paddle boarding, laying in the bean bag chair, and going to Foxys. We got to do a little of everything! Thank you and I wish we could stay longer. Maddie + Julia
Thank you so much for taking a hesitant group and helping them to love sailing. Everyone agreed this was the best vacation and we should have done the whole week. Mission accomplished! I LOVED the sailing on the windy, wavy day! You are a great Captain. Marley you certainly do have a magic kitchen. Every single meal was fabulous. I have a lot of work to do when I get back to Vermont. Thank you also for keeping an eye on the girls, showing them a good time, and witnessing Allies first round of drinks! I hope to come back for a longer adventure, and see even more of the beautiful BVIs Shelley & Jack.
Thank you so much for such an amazing trip! I dont think I could have asked for anything better. You both are so kind and made this such an amazing experience. The food was amazing and I had so much fun. Thanks so much, Allie

Dear Harvey & Marley Moon
Thank you for a truly fantastic week!! We came down 3 years ago to The BVI and had the trip of a lifetime. I never thought we could have an EVEN BETTER time the 2nd time around. The boat is in awesome shape and I slept like a baby and ate like a King every day. You guys are awesome! Harvey was extremely knowledgeable and patient with us, accommodating every persons requests. Marley made sure we were never hungry and made the boat a home. Thanks again Craig
Dear Harvey & Marley
I wanted to say thank you for everything which made our vacation in The BVI unforgettable. We visited beautiful & wonderful places and the itinerary was everything that we would have dreamed about. The friendly atmosphere was great, and your professionalism made everything relaxed. Marley we enjoyed all your great cuisine you should be proud! Harvey I enjoyed your cocktail mixing skills! In summary, activities, itinerary, food & drinks were great! I would recommend you to anyone. Cheers & Best Regards Mark & Melanie PS I loved your guided tour of The Baths and The Bubbly Pool, thanks Harvey. AND thanks to Marley for always locating my sunglasses.
Thank you Harvey & Marley (Moon) for chaperoning us around paradise. Top 5 experiences Secret jump @ The Baths, The Bubbly Pool, Snack time (dont forget the cocktails), Trunk Bay, Harveys daring rescue in the current. We had an unforgettable time. Thank you, Thank you! Chris & Dave PS the color coded water bottles are genius.

Outstanding, awesome, breath-taking, magnificent, wonderful, amazing, stunning. This is how we would describe our trip. Even before we stepped on the board the Ma Ha, Captain Harvey answered our many questions and strove to personalise our vacation. Weary from our travels, Harvey took us to a secluded bay with pristine turquoise waters where we enjoyed a swim with turtles and a spectacular lunch.
Meals were unbelievably good -each and every one- truly gourmet. We still cannot believe the meals and snacks that Marley was able to prepare in her tiny kitchen. My kids are still trying to negotiate a deal with Marley for her to return with us (the secret salmon sauce & eggs benny will not be forgotten!) We hiked, snorkelled, enjoyed the splash of the waves on the trampoline, floated on the paddle boards and ate dinner under the stars. This trip was better than could be imagined. Marley & Captain Harvey. Thanks for the memories!!! John, Ingrid, Tori, Bella & Johnny.

Thank you for your amazing service! Marley - all your meals were so delicious. My favourites included eggs Benedict, pumpkin French toast, the daily snacks and the beautiful table settings throughout the week. I loved your artful fruit platters, towel creations and fancy deserts. Harvey, thank you for all your efforts to take us around the amazing BVIs. It was a great combination of relaxing and seeing the sights. Personal favourites were snorkelling at the Indians, hike to the bubbly pool, hike around Virgin Gorda, sailing the seas, all of the awesome beach bars, wake boarding, your daily surprise cocktail.. so pretty much everything. Our whole group felt so well cared for all week and it was so nice having you both in charge so we could unwind and relax from our busy lives. I would highly recommend friends to charter the Ma Ha with you! Thank you again for everything! Caroline and Mike, Vancouver, Canada. PS the beds and pillows were very comfy and we loved all the boat toys, floats, paddle boards etc.
Guest on Maha for New Years!!
Dear Harvey & Marley Thanks very much for such a wonderful week. Everything was so nice, and our family had one of our best vacations ever! We loved life on the Ma Ha, and both of you made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Harvey your knowledge of The BVI, and the great islands and natural wonders really gave us a special experience. Marley Moon I cant believe how awesome each meal & snack was! We felt like we dined in a 5 star restaurant each day. Hugh
Captain Harvey/Marley Moon You are forever remembered as the main part of one of our best family vacations. Thank you so much for making it so special and for lasting memories. Kim, Hugh, Brian, Peter & Sam.
Guest on Maha for Christmas 2016
This was the trip of a lifetime for the Dial family! Our first time to The BVIs and it was absolutely PERFECT!! Form the moment we stepped on the boat Harvey & Marley were the perfect hosts. They made us feel welcome, comfortable and completely spoiled for the entire week! The boat was always fabulously maintained and clean very luxurious!! Harvey was always there when we needed something, but seemed to know when to give us our personal time as well. I loved that he always asked how our day was and of course our response was always It was perfect! We loved the toys the paddle boards, the kayak & the snorkel gear. Next time I promise to water ski J And the FOOD. Chef Marley made beautiful meals every day both healthy and fresh and presented beautifully. We felt like we were at a 5 star restaurant for the whole week! Thank you Harvey & Marley for an incredible week and a vacation we will never forget. We loved getting to know both of you and will be back soon we hope!! We will be recommending you to our friends and family with 100% confidence. Much love Sara
Ditto what Sara said. This was the BEST trip EVER!! Made even better by getting to know Marley & Harvey and the wonderful Ma Ha. Thank you for giving me and my family a soft place to land. Patrick J
I do not want to get off this boat! It was the best trip of my life, what an adventure! I was a little nervous at first to be on a boat for a week, but that quickly changed when I met Harvey & Marley! They are incredible, and are responsible for all the fun we had! Harvey was a great Captain, and made life really easy for us. He was very funny and now I can say I have a friend in The BVIs. Marley was just as great! She is so outgoing and fun to hang out with. She also makes the MOST AMAZING MEALS. I swear its like being in a 5 star restaurant. We had so much fun being on the Ma Ha and spending a great trip together. Thank you Harvey & Marley! Tyler
Guests aboard Maha for a Oct.16th charter
The 6 of us enjoyed a wonderful week with Captain Harvey & Chef Marley. At all times we felt at ease, safe and well cared for. Capt. Harvey is very knowledgeable, pleasant and engaging, as well as an extremely competent captain. Chef Marley is also lovely and engaging and ensured we had plenty to eat. The food was great, and Marley is an accomplished chef.
We never felt rushed, yet were taken to so many lovely spots like The Baths, The Indians, and The Bubbly Pool. Harvey & Marley kept us well informed and accommodated our requests all while ensuring we didnt want for food or drink. They are a great team, and we would love to sail with them again. The Canadians. Lisa & Dave, James & Barb, Terry & Brenda

Captain Harvey & Rabbit
This was the perfect escape, and by far exceeded expectations. We had high hopes for an amazing time & experience, but were not prepared for how incredibly cool and completely tranquil it was. We loved diving the caves, Willy T's, Paddle boarding The Baths, Sandy Spit etc. We will ABSOLUTELY be back, but ONLY if we can have Harvey & Rabbit as our crew - they absolutely ROCKED! Best crew ever and unforgettable experience - Thank You!! Chris & Pam
A dream come true!! Thank you so much for the most wonderful BVI experience. Everything was first class. I can't imagine how Rabbit came up with so many great eating presentations. We were truly spoiled all day every day. Harvey's knowledge of the islands and guiding us to the best sights in the islands was above and beyond. Thank you Ma Ha for a vacation above all vacations. A dream come true. Chris & Sarah
WOW! Exceeded every expectation at every level. Can't thank you enough for helping us kick start Tom and Chris' next 50 years. Trust me, you will be seeing us again, real soon. Many thanks xoxo Meg & Tom

Dear Harvey & Rabbit
What a relaxing week for us! You both made us feel very comfortable and taken good care of. So accommodating. The food was fantastic, and the sailing great. We could not ask for a better week. Sincerely Linda & Dick
Our thanks for a wonderful - relaxing week. Every detail was covered, from drinks in hand to gourmet food beautifully presented. We can even attest to the calm and efficient handling of an accident on board. Rabbit with the first aid kit, and Harvey guiding us to the nearest hospital - even preparing a bag of sandwiches, water and a coat for the cold ER. We returned to ice cold 'Painkillers"! The weather was perfect and smiles all around as we sail our last day - and appreciate the great vacation. Thanks Sherri & Richard
You could not have been any better at what you do. Two great people doing everything you could for your guests. Wonderful food and SIX star service. Thanks for your wonderful experience. Chuck & Ilsa

What a wonderful week! You were fantastic throughout and really made the trip so very special. We were so impressed with how well you adapted to our pace and needs and how well you made us feel welcome. Thank you so very much. Jon & Laura Hantho, Toronto, Canada.
I'll make this short and sweet. This week has been one of the best of my life. Your teamwork, character, and energy was delightfully contagious, making this week non-stop fun. I am so grateful for our time together and look forward to the day we reconnect and see each other again. Sincerely James Hantho (add me on Facebook)
This week has been one to remember. Together you two made it fun, relaxing, and filling. Seriously, I didn't think it was possible to eat so well at sea. Your dry sense of humour, and ability to manage Karl and I made the trip for us. I hope to see you in the future and wish you the best of luck in the New Year! If you are ever in Virginia or Atlantic Canada, give me a ring. Love Elling & Karl
To the dream team.....
Thank you for making Ma Ha feel like home for the Hantho family. The memories we've made this week will last us a lifetime and leave us smiling and laughing time and again. We are beyond grateful for all that you did to make us feel at home, relaxed, safe, and very very full. You deserve an award of some kind for being the absolute best at sea - it has been a privilege to sail with you into 2016. Thank you for everything. Much love Kirsten.
To the British Duo.
Thank you for making this week unforgettable! We could not have asked for a better crew...seriously!! You were both so accommodating, helpful, funny and beautiful people and I wish you guys all the best. You are the best crew to have if people want the trip of a lifetime :) Thank you again for everything and if you need anything from us we would be happy to help as well. If you are ever in Toronto, don't be a stranger! Love Maddie.

This has been the vacation of a lifetime! Kerri and I had never been on a catamaran vacation before, and were quite nervous on what to expect. From the moment we arrived at the port, until the time we returned, Harvey & Rabbit took care of us. The week long vacation at sea was simply amazing. Harvey & Rabbit went above and beyond, taking us to remote scenic areas, explaining the history of the islands, and preparing the most amazing meals! I truly believe our vacation would not have been half the trip if it werent for Harvey & Rabbit. Thank you so much for the amazing week. Chris & Kerri
Thousands of boats traverse the BVI, yet one stands out among the fleet. THE MA HA! Harvey and Rabbit turn the Ma Ha into a 5 star floating property. Harvey takes pride in his sailing skills, guided tours and knowledge of the BVI. Rabbit spoiled us with her tremendous meals and desserts. What really made the trip so amazing is they both shared conversations and laughs with us the entire week. Great vacations are made through meeting great people. We were fortunate enough to meet Harvey & Rabbit, who took a nice boat and beautiful location and made it a great vacation. Thank you! Steve & Mary
What a truly amazing trip! From the beautiful Ma Ha, and ideal weather to the spectacular scenery, this vacation exceeded our expectations. However, what made this week really wonderful was Harvey & Rabbit. They spoiled us the entire week. Rabbit made the most delicious meals that were works of art, and Harvey bought us to amazing spots on the island that we probably wouldnt have seen on our own. He shared stories of the areas and even took us on some of our hikes. Words cannot describe how fortunate we feel, and how much we have enjoyed this trip. Thank you Harvey & Rabbit for making this the best vacation we have ever been on. Bert & Laura
Guests aboard Maha in April,2015
When our friends told us they were getting married in The BVI we thought AWESOME!, when they said we were going to charter yachts for a week after the wedding, we thought AMAZING! BUT really we had no idea how fantastic the trip would be, and how hard our crew would work to make everything about the experience truly exceptional. Most of us have never been on a charter before, and were a little unsure what it would be like to spend a week in close quarters with each other and two complete strangers! But from the minute we stepped on the boat, Harvey & Rabbit made it feel like home. A super fun home! With insanely good food! Dont get me wrong Harvey is a great Captain, and he made us feel like we had our own personal guide to The BVI. Its always a pleasure to watch someone work who is so obviously a world-class expert, but the reality is that Rabbits cooking stole the show! Ive never seen a group of 8 New Yorkers applaud every course of a meal as a chef described it, but it happened 3 times a day on the Ma Ha. Harveys cocktails are pretty good too. The boat had everything we needed and then some, and I cant imagine how we could have possibly had a better time. I cant believe we have to get on a plane tomorrow!! Chad
I feel so fortunate to have stumbled into the good luck of being under the care of Harvey & Rabbit for my first charter experience. Their impeccable service, calm, cool, collected manner no matter the circumstance, and exceptional good humor made for a perfect match for our group, and enhanced our trip more than we ever thought 2 strangers could. We are leaving with full bellies and full hearts, completely spoiled by Rabbits phenomenal cooking and Harveys island expertise. The gorgeous Ma Ha was a most welcoming and excellent home for us during our adventure through The Caribbean. Thank you so much! Steph, NY
What an amazing experience! Having never been on a chartered boat before, I truly had no idea what to expect. What a pleasure to land on the best boat with the best crew in The Caribbean. Harvey & Rabbit are a great team the demeanor is welcoming, accommodating, friendly and very helpful in navigating all that the Caribbean has to offer. Harveys cocktails of the day (along with Rabbits famous banana daiquiri) were a surprise and a major hit! What can be said about Rabbits cooking? Every meal was exceptional from the terrific breakfasts and the awesome lunches (love that burger!) to the wonderful 3 course dinners and oh the ice-creams! The Ma Ha is a glorious vessel to have the honor to be aboard. My only hope is to have the opportunity to board again in the future. Thank you Ma Ha! Thank you Rabbit! Thank you Harvey! Dylan, NY
It has been nothing short of euphoric while at see on the Ma Ha. I cannot imagine a better crew than Harvey & Rabbit. The sea was a perfect blue, and the company easy. The cocktail of the day was a wonderful surprise each sunset, and Rabbits food may have spoiled us for life. All days will be a little less bright, and a little less warm as we venture home. Thanks. Connor NY.
This trip has exceeded my expectations far and above. Thank you both so much for the gracious hospitality that made our trip so wonderful. This is our first charter experience, and we would love to do another one going with you both as our crew again. Harveys warmth and wit plus Rabbits expert culinary skill makes this experience beyond amazing! Ill sure be thinking and dreaming about the crystal clear open water, dazzling sun, and glistening night sky for months when I am back in Brooklyn. Thank you so much for being part of this amazing experience. Cheers! Judy, NY.
Guests aboard MA HA in March, 2015
What a fabulous week! Thank you Harvey & Rabbit for making this trip one that our family will remember for a lifetime. You took care of our every need bringing us the smoothest most beautiful anchorages, showing us magical snorkeling reefs and pristine white sandy beaches, cooking one 5 star gourmet meal after another, always offering a drink or a towel and tidying up after us, and even providing the perfect Caribbean weather (out-sailing any storm we saw). The boat was in terrific shape, and your level of service and attention to detail made us feel like we were at a very high-end resort. It was a real treat to spend a week on Ma Ha. Thank you for making it so special. We hope to see you again here in the islands, or if you ever visit San Francisco.
We have become spoiled spoiled beyond words!! Having bare boated many years, often with sleepless nights, worried about the anchor, or sweating over a hot stuffy stove, the Ma Ha and her crew of two, Harvey and Rabbit (Cara), have ruined us. Our standard of sailing will now be measured by the unbelievable cooking of Rabbit and her array of three course meals, her incomparable snacks, and an endless supply of novel and tasty ice creams. Our unflappable captain Harvey No Worries Rogers sailed to our every whim, served an endless supply of tasty and refreshing libations and was always ready with a water toy, snorkel or towel for our every activity and endless swimming. Even familiar anchorages became new and novel with Harvey and Rabbits local knowledge and friendly connections. Ma Has beautiful state rooms, ample living space and numerous lounge spaces made for a relaxing vacation filled with great joys, satisfying sails and endless water sports! Thank you Harvey & Rabbit!!
If you cant already tell, we had an amazing time on Ma Ha this week. The fabulous boat and all its fun toys were only a small part of what made our vacation so special. The two people that had the biggest impact on our lovely experience were our amazing captain and chef Harvey & Rabbit. You two made sure that we had the best food, fun and sun possible, so thank you! Ive loved being on your boat and hope that I can make it back again. If not though, good luck and thanks again for an unbelievable trip in the BVI!

It is with greatest sadness that our adventure with you is over. Thank you for your kindness, hospitality and making our epic family vacation PERFECT! While it is difficult to narrow down all the great experiences, meals, snorkelling, skiing and relaxing were top of my list. We hope that we can repay them when you decide to come to New Hampshire so we can do the same for you. With much love

Dear Harvey & Rabbit
I cant begin to thank you enough for a most fantastic vacation. To see the joy in my familys faces is wonderful. Your temperament with the children was nothing short of extraordinary. We will remember this trip forever.
