Its rare that Ill take the time to write a note of praise, but this definitely deserves it.
Thank you very much for pointing us to Storm Petrel and to Phil Levine. Storm Petrel was a comfortable and very safe vessel. It would have been incredibly easy to spend far more than one week on her.
My wife and I dont even know where to start with regards to Phil. Our daughter (five years old) rarely expresses her emotions. She still cant stop talking about how incredible Phil was during the trip. She was terrified of heeling at the start of the trip, but Phil worked with her throughout the week and by the end she couldnt get enough of the tipping. Our son (nine) said he had the best time in his entire life. Between seaweed fights and helping our son torture his sister (which she enjoys), Phil let our son take part in the running of Storm Petrel. His confidence levels have definitely been boosted. The number one question out of both of our kids mouths is When do we get to see Phil again? Ive never seen anyone able to interact with them the way Phil did.
Phil turned the piloting of his boat over to me shortly after boarding her. He was there when I needed him and in the background when I didnt. He almost made me feel as if Storm Petrel was my boat and he was the guest! This is exactly the type of experience I was looking for. I would never have considered asking him to watch our kids while my wife and I spent some time together. I didnt have to. He offered to do it on multiple occasions! Phil was not our host while on board he became a friend of our family.
The long and the short of it is that we had an incredible week. Thank you for arranging it.
Sincere and warm regards,
We had gourmet candle light dinners on the deck (just the two of us) with wine and the best service of any restaurant in the BVI! Laura's culinary skills are really amazing especially with the tiny kitchen she was working with. We loved spending time on the deck in the evenings with Phil and Laura and truly appreciated the way they made us feel right at home.
Two thumbs up, 10 out of 10 and we would definitely charter with them again. Thanks for connecting us with such a good team.
