Matt & Tara couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming!
Nana was a great boat, very comfortable for our group. Outdoor space was the best part of the boat.
The food was fantastic. Presentation was superb. Preferences were well customized, thanks Tara!
We tweaked the itinerary as we went along and found the best snorkeling and places to stay.
Sailing Directions were very organized and great to deal with. Information on the website was great. We would certainly recommend your services to others.

The crew were great!! Nana is comfortable and we enjoyed eating at the outside table for meals. Food was amazing! Tara did a wonderful job customized to our preferences.
You were very helpful and made it easier for us to book this trip.

Matt and Tara were exceptional. Friendly, helpful and a pleasure. They knew when to "fade into the background" but also were very engaged with our group. We have been numerous times to the BVI but they brought us to some wonderful snorkeling sites we had not seen before.
The boat was very clean absolutely no complaints there. Very nice boat, good spaces.
The food was AMAZING! If you like good food, go on this charter! Menu was well customized, some of us had food allergies, and Tara made some separate custom meals as good as the rest. Everything from scratch. Only problem is the few pounds we each gained for the week - well worth it. Matt is a terrific drink mixer.
Very good itinerary--and they were willing to go to the places we also wanted to see.
Sailing Directions' service was problem free and appreciated. Would recommend Sailing Directions, The Nana, and Matt and Tara without reservation.
Jeremy D, aboard Catamaran Nana January 2016 sailing the Virgin Islands
Darrin & Desire were awesome! Darrin was the best Captain ever and he knows his islands. He took us to a few out of the way sites that were wonderful and appreciated. Desire is an amazing chef and kept our bellies happy! Everything she created was delightful and yummy. We adored them so much.
Mimzy is beautiful and plenty of room for the four of us. This was a first time experience for all of us and it was perfect.
Our Virgin Island itinerary was amazing and everything we had hoped for. We can't wait to experience this again. Darrin went over everything with us and asked our opinions and accommodated everything we requested but he also had suggestions that were perfect!
Very happy with Sailing Directions’ service. The response time was always immediate and all my questions were always answered. We will definitely use your service again in the future and have already recommended to several friends.
This was a bucket list of ours for years and was everything we hoped it would be. We are saving up for next year!
