Stephen & Julia are extremely knowledgeable - very, very accommodating - they sat down with us and listened to our requests, thoughts, etc. to make a plan for the week - and then each day the schedule was addressed and our requests were foremost in their decisions as to what to do. We felt like they had all the knowledge of what we’d like to do and when, and they put together great itineraries.
Safari exceeded our expectations - plenty of room, lots of area to gather, or to be alone. Beds were really comfortable, and everything was so clean.
The food was beyond our expectations! Julia is an amazing cook - delicious and gorgeous presentation! She customized to us - only complaints are that she fed us too much and that we had to come home without her!
We felt like we did the perfect option with the half board - the benefit of Julia’s amazing cooking, and also being able to sample some of the local flavor at dinners and lunch.
We had an incredible time - exceeded our expectations in every way! Thanks to you too for coordinating for us - made everything run very smoothly. We really appreciated the advice regarding packing - we did a pretty good job with that. Pre-planning and prep was great and easy. Will definitely recommend to others! And we’ll be back, too!

Stephen & Julia were top notch. We enjoyed not only their professionalism and great ideas about where to go and what to see, but also their stories and meeting good friends of theirs along the way. They really made the trip memorable and relaxing. It was clear from the minute we stepped on Safari that we had chosen a great crew, but by the end of the week we had also made new friends.
Safari was perfect, in excellent physical condition and perfectly laid out for our family of 4. We loved the front sitting area to relax with great views while underway and the rear table and sitting area was perfect for not just meals but gathering for games and cocktails.
The food was great. Julia made lots of different dishes and we enjoyed them all. We didn’t have a lot of specific preferences and were very happy with all of her cooking. Come hungry as there’s always lots to eat and drink.
We loved the itinerary sailing the Virgin Islands. We liked the route and all the moorages but what really made the trip special was Stephen & Julia’s local knowledge. They showed us a handful of small beach towns and the local vibe of each place. We met a number of their friends and really enjoyed seeing some of the spots off the beaten path.
Sailing Directions was great. Everything was easy and all my questions were answered promptly. The website and information shared for what to pack, where to stay on St. Thomas, etc. was very helpful.

We had a great time the Captain was first rate and Julia was a great chef and first mate. They made us feel at home and very relaxed. I would definitely recommend the Safari and crew to anyone.

Thank you so much for all of your help with planning our family vacation. It was better than we ever imagined! The Safari was a great boat and Stephen and Julia, were wonderful. I would definitely recommend you to friends and hopefully we will charter again soon!
Stephen and Julia really went out of their way to make this a memorable trip! The boat was very immaculate! I was pleased with having a separate A/C units in each room.
Julie did an amazing job with the meals, desserts and appetizers. You definitely won't leave hungry!
The itinerary was perfect. Since it was a busy time to be there, Stephen seemed to know exactly when to get to each destination before the crowd! He is also well liked on the islands. Everyone knew him!
I was very happy with the service Sailing Directions provided. John was very informative and prompt on answering all of my questions! We would love to charter again. I would definitely recommend your company to friends.

I wanted to say what a great time we had. Safari was a really fabulous boat - stylish, immaculate and very well laid out and equipped. And Stephen and Erin are a wonderful crew - highly competent and very attentive and hospitable but at the same time laid back and not intrusive. We felt in very safe hands with Stephen, and Erin is a really excellent cook. We have become converts to crewed catamarans and suspect this experience will be hard to beat.
Rupert B, aboard Catamaran Safari December 2012 sailing the Virgin Islands
Stephen and Erin were great! Very accommodating, had everything well planned out, and were kind and thoughtful.
Safari was very clean and comfortable.
The food was excellent. My son has a gluten allergy that Erin took great care to accommodate and everything still tasted terrific. I was very impressed.
Did you enjoy the itinerary and the area you sailed?
- Absolutely. We got exactly what we asked for and more.
