Captain Mike and Terri,
We had an absolutely wonderful time - you were both so incredibly generous and fun to "live" with! We packed a full weeks worth of island hopping and activities into 6 days (well actually 5 days)
-Jost Van Dyke
The beaches were tremendous, the snorkeling was amazing, the restaurants pleased everyone (even our 16 year old son).
Thank you for creaking memories

We Did Everything We Wanted & Much, Much More!
We just finished up another perfect vacation aboard Elixir. This was our second time doing a captain only charter and Elixir was just as we remembered it, truly amazing!
Captain Kevin is fantastic; he is very skilled at his craft, professional and fun! It was so refreshing to have a captain that made us feel very safe while at the same time being a welcome member of the group and joining us in laughs! Kevin's knowledge of the Virgin Islands helped us build such an enjoyable itinerary. We did everything we wanted and much much more!
It was an added bonus when we realized Kevin was a fisherman. We caught a bunch of fish in deep water going from island to island. We ended up keeping a grouper and mackerel to eat. Kevin was happy to fillet them for us (not one bone found!) and he had a restaurant cook and serve the fish to us with sides. It was such a delicious and memorable meal. The fishing just may have been the highlight of the trip for all four us, so much excitement and SO many laughs! Kevin went above and beyond in every way during our week. Even up to the last hour on our charter, when he made sure that we squeezed in what ended up being the best snorkeling of the trip. We were so appreciative to maximize the trip down to the last minute.
Elixir is clean, very well-maintained and has very comfortable accommodations below deck. Although we've only done an adults only trip aboard, my husband and I have talked about how appealing Elixir would be for our 3 children. Water toys combined with the ability to do something new each day, would make for an unforgettable family vacation.
Our hope is to be lucky enough to repeat this trip annually. Trust me, before your trip is even over, you'll be planning your next, you just can't help it! Until next time....

I Have Never Laughed So Much on a Trip!
Our trip aboard the Elixir from Jan. 12 to the 18, 2017.
Captain Kevin and Bri were the perfect crew for our group. Most of our group was in the middle age area with one exception of a 30 year old. We happened to travel at the time of the waves of the century - lol! We had 8 to 10 foot waves or more the entire trip so we were not able to get to a few of the places we had planned on going to. It was a safety factor explained by Kevin and was appreciated by all. We traveled every day to a new site that he could get us into and spent the days in the sun and checking out the local sites. We did not miss what we were not able to get to.
Kevin and Bri were both very knowledgeable about the area and knew where to take us to have fun. The boat was clean as were the rooms. Plenty of room for our stuff. Everyday while we were traveling we sat on top and looked forward to where we were going.
The food we had requested was at hand and was marvelously cooked by Bri. She really has a knack for putting food together and presenting it. I even tried food that I have never tried in my life like brussel sprouts! The way she cooked them made them tasty.
I have never laughed so much on a trip before and we embraced Kevin and Bri as part of our group. We had an awesome time and looking forward to doing it again.
Thanks for an awesome and unforgettable trip!

Our Crew Were the Perfect Tour Guides!
We spent 5 days on the Catamaran Elixir. We ate gourmet food, drank island cocktails and relaxed all week . When we craved entertainment the crewi were the perfect tour guides. They led us snorkeling on reefs and into caves. We paddle boarded and were entertained with Bri's Yoga talents, great ballance! They gave us an adventurous tour of an island with huge boulders, shopping when we wanted and bars for the guys to wait out the girls shopping trip. Oh and the hidden gem of a restaurant, The Last Resort: a must try for anyone craving great food and beautiful atmosphere.
So much to see and do, all of us have the same opinion: The trip of a lifetime! Thank you!
The Food Was Incredible!
We had a FANTASTIC time on the Elixir. I think it was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. The crew could not have been nicer, and we felt very well taken care of. The food was incredible. The boat was very comfortable and well-stocked for drinks. Our captain was very knowledgeable about handling the boat, and he and the chef/mate worked seamlessly together to handle everything. They took us to the best snorkeling and Happy Hour places and a wonderful restaurant on the beach on Anegada.
We will highly recommend this trip to friends. ~The Lebsons
The journey you took us on will never be forgotten
Our experience on the Elixir was perfect from start to finish. This was the first time we rented a sail boat not to mention one Captained by two amazing people. Planning the trip, It was hard to fully grasp until we arrived and instantly knew that we hit the jackpot You are an amazing team and couple.
Our trip was fulfilled on many fronts. Yes, the Caribbean is warm, embracing and beautiful but it was the learning you provided that made this experience one to behold. We enjoyed various Island visits, exquisite snorkeling in the areas you sought for us, swimming, shopping and lounging. The gracious hospitality you provided on and off the boat was as relaxing as the trip was exhilarating. You helped us make it what we wanted. Incrementally, your cooking, food and refreshments were fabulous!
Thank you for conducting our trip with pride, knowledge and experiences we never could have figured out on our own. The journey you took us on will never be forgotten and will be cherished forever. Look for us again because we want to create more memories.
Thank you for your exceptional hospitality.
Laure and friends

A wonderful family bonding trip. We are so thankful for our wonderful hosts. You made everything enjoyable from the delicious food, gorgeous beaches, New Years Eve bash in Trellis Bay, snorkeling excursions to even 9 foot swells! You even got Maddy to eat (: This will go down in our book as the best Family Vacation yetI say that because we plan on coming back so that we can perfect our paddle board surfing AND we need to get to Anegada! Thanks for being an amazing crew, we loved hanging out with you!
An Absolutely Perfect Holiday
Its the last day of an absolutely perfect holiday! We could not have asked for anymore -the itinerary, the food & the company could not be improved on!
