Rick C, aboard Catamaran Something Wonderful sailing the British Virgin Islands
Paul & Isabella were wonderful. Very professional and knowledgeable. They made our vacation a memorable one.
Something Wonderful is beautiful. Clean, great layout. Love the light grey tones. Very serene.
Super impressed with the food. Bella is extremely talented. There was not a meal that we didn't enjoy. It was actually hard to pick just one as our favorite.
We loved the itinerary in the BVIs. Had a good mix of beach and snorkeling and watersports.
John at Sailing Directions did a great job of getting back to us with any questions we had before and after booking. Very professional.
We had been looking forward to going back to the BVIs with our kids since we loved it so much the first time we went. It was as beautiful as we remembered. Our children really enjoyed the vacation. Great family time. The boat was even nicer in person than online. It is very spacious. Has plenty of space to get sun if that's what you want or shade if you prefer. The fly bridge is incredible. Gives you so much extra room to lounge around. The color scheme is very soothing. It is super well-kept and clean.
Paul and Bella are incredibly professional, friendly, attentive and accommodating. They made our vacation memorable from start to finish. Paul is very knowledgeable of the islands. We loved everywhere he suggested we try. Bella is an incredibly talented chef. Every meal was amazing. We looked forward eagerly to each one and to this day have a hard time picking our favorite. If we were to return to the BVI's again we would without hesitation book Something Wonderful. My suggestion to anyone looking to charter. Look no further. Book this boat ASAP. You will not regret it.

What an amazing Christmas week and an honor to be your first guests! The memories we all made this week will last a lifetime.
Graeme, Lauren and Zayne all went above and beyond to ensure we were fully pampered and happy every minute. They were always ready to do anything from getting movie night set up, water sports with the kids, running us into beach bars, serving yummy drinks of the day (Z Island Rum Punch) and on and on . . . . They helped us make some extra special memories that we will cherish, while getting photos of the whole week so we can take them home.
Something Wonderful REALLY was just that and we cant wait to spend our next time with these wonderful people on this absolutely perfect boat!
