So competent and capable
Wow!!! We highly recommend Jackson & Chelseathey are VERY young, but so competent and capable and they took great care of us.
They didnt have to, but sent a cab for us at the airport, so that we would have a familiar face to help us.
They give a map to the group with our dive sites and moorings for the day & nites markedgreat touch.
They go out of their way to make sure we are doing what we wanted, and are kept informed of what we are going to do, etc.
They also shared some new locations/moorings and dive sites that we hadnt explored before.
Thank you

M Family
Wonderful memories that will last a lifetime
Captain Jack and Chelsea,

Thank you so much for a fantastic vacation! We all had the best week ever! Your skills and guidance really helped us to feel relaxed and safe in our journey. You are both very kind and professional. Thanks for playing along every night during our family tradition of highs and lows. This vacation will definitely be one of our all time highs!

You helped us make some wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Jack, thanks for letting John play captain and especially for taking him lobster diving ☺ that made his trip! Chelsea, every meal was delicious and beautifully presentedno exceptions! Our bellies are full and happy. Great week, thanks again!
-John, Jill, Casey and Kayla
To say we had a great time would be a vast understatement
I wanted to send a HUGE thank you for connecting us with the Sweetest Thing Catamaran and crew. To say we had a great time would be a vast understatement. Jackson and Chelsea were not only a perfect fit for our group, they're hosting abilities were top notch.

We were met by Jackson at the dock and invited aboard with drinks in the making. Chelsea's energetic smile and abilities with that very small kitchen is AMAZING. We were not only offered 3 meals a day, the appetizers, munchies, deserts and everything else were off the charts. (Yes we can be picky at times, but we didn't miss a thing offered throughout the trip.)

While traveling through the islands, the ship always seemed to navigate with ease under Jackson and Chelsea's direction. We were excited to see a new bay, hideaway, or just a coastline change each and every day. Often times several times a day. (In some strange way I actually felt sad for the people we would come across as their view wasn't changing several times a day like ours....) To be honest it was like nothing we had experienced before.

If I had to explain why someone would want to choose the Sweetest Thing over another ship, well how about: Awesome drinks always on tap (blended, shaken or stirred)(Painkillers, Bushwackers and more), amazing chef quality meals (baked, grilled, seared and then some), DESSERTS.... enough said, navigation of island stops that keep you begging for more, dive locations that felt like you're dropping into a pet store aquarium, and, most importantly, a crew that kept raising the bar for fun and entertainment.

We started the trip with a smile but ended with the best memories we've ever had travelling. If someone is even close to considering this ship or crew, do not hesitate. Book it immediately!! Otherwise someone else will be having your trip of a lifetime instead.

Thank you​ so much, we will be booking again in the future.

Todd, Valerie, Jay & Eve

Best week of my life
Thank you so much for the best week of my life. The food was the greatest thing ever, and I can't believe all the stuff we did in so little time. I am very glad we got the best chef and Jack of all traits! We will miss our chef and Cap Tomatoes. We will miss you guys and don't ever forget I have DIBS on joining the crew first. Thanks <3

This experience has been by far, the best trip I\'ve ever made
Thank you so much Jack and Chelsea for an amazing vacation. This experience has been by far the best trip I've ever made. It had everything from cool snorkels, scuba dives, wakeboard, catapults to the water, and just plain relaxing. List goes on and one. Besides crazy fun activities and all out fun, the food was amazing (best part - DESSERT) delicious, and also pretty presentation. Thank you Jack & Chelsea for a great vacation. #BetterthanDubrovnik.

Just being nice and fun
Thank you for everything you did for us this trip. First of all Chelsea, the best food I have had ever in my life. The seafood, meat, and especially the desserts. Then also, just being nice and fun. Then Jack, the man of many skills including telling jokes, monkey, captain, wakeboard instructor, dishwasher, firefighter, etc.
Dubrovnik forgotten...
Thank you for putting up with us this week. Helping us dive, snorkel, or sling shooting us up into the air. Throughout this trip I have forgotten all about Dubrovnik (compliment). Thank you for everything (especially the coconuts)

Memories & stories forever
Thank you so so so so much!! for being an AMAZING crew and friends!! Please be in touch!! You will be in our memories and stories forever :). Hope we can ketchup later!
We only had an idea of what this trip was going to be...
To say you two have gone above & beyond is an understatement. We only had an idea of what this trip was going t be. The navigating of beautiful sites, bays, bars, etc. was amazing. Jackson, if this little 47' is any indication of your skills, I see a 60'+ in your future. Don't give up the thought of bartending, however - bushwackers, root beer & rum, & everything else we consumed was AWESOME! Chelsea, your presence definitely keep Jackson going. For every day of this trip, you turned out AMAZING food. I mentioned so many times I might not have chosen it on a menu, but your prep of all meals was delicious. I now have a much broader idea of meals to cook.

For the both of you, never forget to take time to spend with just each other. Valerie and I are first friends, then second a husband & wife. We are so lucky to have this and hope others do too.

We wish you both the best of luck with wherever your travels take you. Thanks a bunch

Todd & Valerie
One word - WOW!
One word - WOW! The two of you made this trip amazing. The attention to detail, hospitality, and just the way the two of you working with each other with such ease.

Jack - the drinks yummy! Can't beat being served Bushwackers on an island hand delivered! Key Lime pie!!!

The food - delicious. The ports beautiful. Thank you for incredible memories. Looking forward to doing this again!

Jay & Eve
Just the vacation that we needed!
Incredible Trip! Thanks for all the memories!

Fantastic Week! Jack & Chelsea were an awesome team. Can't wait to come back!

Just the vacation that we needed! Wonderful memories... Jack and Chelsea made our trip extra special!

A lifetime of memories in 1 week!
A lifetime of memories in 1 week! So much great food and drinks, including the wonderful "Sweetest Ting!" Chelsea is fantastic - you really should write a cookbook!

Great paddle boarding and snorkeling. Learned some sailing "stuff" (some more than others). Survived our multiple injuries :). Oxtail at Cane Garden. Y'all are great crew and I hope you have a lifetime of fun and memories on the water.

We had an absolute fabulous vacation
We had an absolute fabulous vacation aboard the Sweetest Thing. I truly believe that we made the correct decision on both the boat as well as the crew. Brad and Leslie were really terrific, and we had a great time with both of them last week. They were both so accommodating and the food never disappointed. It was so nice not having to worry about what we were going to do for the day, as they always had it planned out for us. I personally was very relaxed from the moment I stepped aboard. Normally I worry about work when on vacation, however I really didn't care or think about it at all during this vacation. I don't believe any of us wanted the week to come to an end. I certainly would recommend the Sweetest Thing with Lesile and Brad as crew to anyone. They will not be disappointed.
Without a doubt one of the best vacations EVER!
Without a doubt one of the best vacations EVER! Brian and I had an awesome time. Brad and Leslie were so incredible. The food was delicious and Leslie is an incredible cook, I've never eaten so much or had so much to drink and I agree with Sue, we must have gained at least 10 lbs. We loved spending the week with Sue, Craig, Crystal and Todd, best group to travel and vacation with. Thank for booking us with the "Sweetest Thing" .

We had a great time as well. We absolutely enjoyed Brad and Lesli. She blew me away with her Gluten Free Meals. I for once didnt feel like the freak at the table and I never got sick. I think Craig and I both gained about 10 lbs. I would highly suggest her for anyone that needs Gluten Free Meals. She did state that she has accommodated other people with dietary restrictions as well.

Just wanted to say Thank You! Crystal and I had a Great time on The Sweetest Thing, Brad and Lesli were awesome! I know the rest of our group had fun as well.
This was a first for Crystal and I, and something we will do again. The food on the cruise was also very good!
Captain is a Pleasure!
The boat was exactly as indicated...captain is a pleasure and his 16 year old daughter, Emily, was great with the grandchildren. He did a great job of keeping us away from the crowds of spring break and doing the cooking as well!!

Reviews for Sweetest Thing with previous crew:

Our crew, Jackson and Chelsea were fantastic. They were very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. They shared information about the islands and Chelsea's food was healthy and delicious.

Sweetest Thing was more spacious than we expected. It had A/C although we opted to keep our port hatches open for the fresh air. It was clean. We were traveling with 2 kids and it was nice they each had their own cabin and their own bathroom, each with a shower. The whole yacht was kept clean and tidy.

The food was perfect. We enjoyed every snack, entree and dessert. Chelsea always added a little something to add to the presentation. It matched our preferences perfectly.

The itinerary exceeded our expectations. We covered more territory than expected. We could relax comfortably in the sun or shade while sailing. And every stop had something a little different to offer. Jackson informed us of our choices and we were always happy we took his advice on what to do.

Thanks for your help. We had a fantastic trip!

Carolyn B, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

You were great. The boat was great. Chelsea and Jackson - beyond words. My research was spot on, plus a million percent.

Stacey S, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

Chelsea and Jackson were beyond friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. From making sure all our favorite snacks were aboard, drinks cold, to listening to what kinds of activities we wanted to do and offering to make special stops along our planned itinerary or taking the kids for extended tubing rides.

Sweetest Thing was incredibly clean and well ventilated. We loved the back sun pad, the bean bags in front, the comfortable rooms, the lounge areas/tables. It was all great. But Jackson and Chelsea made it the best it could possibly be.

The food was incredible! We joked we were handing out Michelin stars. Breakfast, lunch and dinner and of course the desserts were all absolutely amazing. Just absolutely stunning! Incredible what Chelsea does in the small galley kitchen. I researched this aspect extensively, and her reputation is 100% accurate.

How to put into words. Best vacation ever. It was absolutely breathtakingly amazing! And when we saw something we wanted to experience – Jackson was quick to say: “would you like to stop and check it out?” Just perfect.

Sailing Directions was great. Incredibly responsive. Thanks for everything, John. Website was the best out there, in my opinion. The best search engine out there.

The kids had a marvelous time. Everyone had the best time. When this request for a review came in, the kids were quick to say: “Make sure you give Chelsea and Jackson the best for everything!” It was truly a spectacular experience.

Stacey S, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

Brad and Lesli did an outstanding job as captain and first mate. They were very friendly and attended to every request in a polite, courteous and efficient manner. The boat was well provisioned exactly as we had requested on our preference sheet. Brad even took special requests for his runs ashore. We couldn't have asked for a better crew! Brad's experience as captain gave everyone aboard a sense of security and calm. He really seemed intent on making our days in the Caribbean the absolute best. He succeeded!

Brad and Lesli were constantly cleaning and did an excellent job with respect to the boat. Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the cabins, they were comfortable and well ventilated.

Lesli's presentation at dinner was as good as in any high-end restaurant and her desserts were simply outstanding!

The area we sailed is rated as among the most beautiful on earth. We all certainly concur with that assessment.
