Your Hungarian crew welcomes you on board!
Captain Tamas Hamor learned to sail 10 years ago when he was living in Spain, running his very successful construction business, and sailed all over in the Mediterranean. Before becoming a sailor he owned two bars and worked as a bartender, so nobody can make you more tasteful cocktails than him!
The first mate/chef Sara is a girl with many hats. She started to sail when she was 5 years old on the beautiful lake Balaton, in Hungary, than later on the Mediterranean as all her family members are sailors. She is also a lawyer but gave up her office to be out on the big blue. She is an excellent chef, with lots of Hungarian dishes on the menu (as the world famous gulash soup) or can set up any diet-plan if you wish.
The lovely couple started to sail together more than 4 years ago from Europe, sailed across the Atlantic ocean couple of times and lived/worked as crew for an international company in the Caribbean for a year. Since than they started their own charters from Central America through French Polynesia not to mention New Zealand and Australia and logged over 50,000 nautical miles. They are both PADI certified and Sara is a dive instructor offering PADI open water course right off the boat!

Thank you for all that you did in answering all of our questions prior to our trip too. It was all extremely helpful and helped us to make the best decision ever in selecting Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!
We had a vacation of a lifetime!!!! Everything was absolutely perfect!!!! I don't know if I have the words to describe the memories that we created during the last week. These could not have been possible without Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!! Tamas and Sara were so gracious and welcoming from the very beginning They opened up their home to us and the services they provided were excellent!!! We so enjoyed getting to know them. We enjoyed everything about the trip. Some of the highlights included:
Tamas and Sara's approach to their jobs. They are positive and passionate about what they do and it showed up every minute of every day. Their attitudes, smiles and laughs were contagious!!!
The delicious food that Sara prepared was incredible!!!
The ever flowing drinks that Tamas prepared for "Happy Hour" were wonderful. Something different was prepared every day!!!
Our Happy Hour on the 4th of July had a special Red White and Blue theme drink along with some American Corn Dogs!!! So fun!!!
They were extremely knowledgeable about sailing which put us at ease of course. So we appreciated their expert sailing skills!!!
They were also very skilled at diving. We appreciated their patience with us since we are beginner divers. The dive spots they selected were perfect for our level of diving experience and we greatly appreciated them taking it slow and easy for us.
Their answer was always yes. No matter what we asked to see or do, they always said YES. So we did everything we wanted to do!!!
And, the boat is too cool for words. Every place we stopped, we had so many people asking about the cool features of the boat. It was awesome!!! It was very comfortable and our beds were made and bathrooms were cleaned daily!!!
They took us to places on the islands that we didn't even know about such as Sydney's, Bubble Bath, Saba Rock etc..
I could go on and on but these were just a few of the highlights of our trip. It was truly the best vacation Richard, Jennifer, Travis and I have ever had.
Tamas and Sara are a very energetic couple and they are what made our trip both adventurous and luxurious all at the same time!!! It was everything we wanted and then some!!! I just can't say enough good things about Tamas, Sara, The Pearl and our vacation.
Thank you again for getting us in contact with Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!
If you ever have any specific questions about our fantastic trip, don't hesitate to contact us.
It's Monday, so I guess we better get to work so we can start saving up for our 2nd Vacation of a Lifetime. So when we contact you, just know that we will not be interested in any other crew or boat. So go ahead and make a note that we will only be interested in booking Tamas, Sara and The Pearl!!!
Thank you again,
Richard and Linda Hay
Wanted to thank you with your help for our trip. We had a great time on the Pearl. The Captain (tamas) and first mate (sara) would wonderful. My family had a great, memorable and fun trip. I was sick the entire trip but still managed to have a great trip. Tamas and Sara were wonderful in every way. The Pearl is "their" boat/home and it showed. The boat was spacious, the activities were exactly what we wanted when we wanted them. Overall we could not have asked for a better trip. I heard that the weather the week before was not too good and the week after was not too good so we planned it perfectly. Thanks for your help and wanted to let you know what a great time was had by all. Also, Windward passage was fine for a stopover and Oceana for dinner was excellent.
Best to you
Yes, it's their job to be accommodating and friendly and with a high end charter, we expected no less. But Tamas and Sara were so much more than that. The pre-charter preference sheet we filled out that asked what foods we liked, alcohol we liked, and what kind of activities we enjoyed was thoroughly looked over before they provisioned the boat for our week and it was obvious! Sara prepared meal after meal that we all loved! She knew Jake loved chicken, Ciera's favourite was vegetables and lamb, Randy's favourite was steak and over the course of the week, all 6 of us had our favourite food PLUS loved every meal she made! We joked with Sarah every meal, "how can you top this one?" She even accommodated me with my preferred breakfast shake of papaya, peanut butter, spinach and yogurt! Sara is such a wonderful cook and presents each meal with class. I think we all gained at least 5 pounds but we made a pact among our family that we could not complain about gaining weight or we would have to do a shot of tequila! (we still had to do a few)
Tamas knows what he's doing on that boat! We loved that he was willing to explain the sailing, the cleaning, the maintenance... whatever we wanted to know. Some sailors can be a bit conceited, but Tamas was knowledgeable without being a prick. He was always willing to "entertain" with the water sports, or pumping up the kayake, tube, etc.. Ciera and Ian really enjoyed having him take them diving.... We noticed and appreciated how hard both Sara and Tamas work all day, and even with that weariness they must have felt, they were always pleasant!
We felt better the nights that we got them to go out with us or sit down and play a card game and have drinks with us... they sooo deserved it by the end of a day! They are a fun couple and our family enjoyed our week aboard Pearl and we have some Fantastic family memories !
Thanks you too for helping arrange the whole thing.
