    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A family that we booked aboard 58' Catamaran Braveheart in February, 2017 said:

    Spoiled in a good way... Jerry and Dawn were fantastic hosts on our recent trip through the Virgin Islands. Gracious and accommodating in every way. We could not have asked for a better pairing of family and crew.

    Jerry is a master class sailor and dive master always finding the best snorkeling spots, and always ahead of the other boats. Jerry is as handy with the grill as he is the blender and the stories that come with 25 years on the water were always a dinnertime treat. Jerry led us through an effortless week of sailing through the BVI, hitting all of the spots on our wish list providing us with a relaxing and fun filled vacation that is second to none. Dawn is a multi-talented spark of life that at times, appears to be part hummingbird. Dawn's meals were awe inspiring beautiful works of art that you could tell were made from scratch and with the freshest of ingredients. Weeks after and we are still talking about the meals! Still not quite sure how she managed to produce what she did out of the galley on Braveheart. Dawn cooked, cleaned, tidy our rooms and still managed to raise a sail. Sometimes, I swear all at once!

    The itinerary was absolutely perfect! We traveled through the islands and accomplished much more than expected, all at a leisurely pace. Jerry and Dawn were spot on with suggestions on places to see and things to do. A perfect mix of snorkeling spots, sightseeing, beach bars and pirate shows. The turquoise waters and secluded beaches on Anegada, with our lobster beach dinner and the Congo line dancing were one of our favorite days and truly Amazing!

    Braveheart was a spacious boat with a great layout and an ensuite in each of the 4 cabins. Plenty of room for our group of 6 lounge and relax. The boat was very well kept and comes with more toys than we could use during the trip. Sleeping under the starry nights with a cool breeze was fantastic for most of the nights and air conditioning that came in handy for a few.

    Lynne from Carefree Yacht Charters provided us with a very straight forward and accommodating approach to booking the Braveheart Charter. Her insights, crew match making service and hand holding helped to cast us away on a trip of a lifetime. The step by step process and checklist make a daunting task seem easy. Thank you Lynne!

    From sun up to sun down, this crew worked relentlessly in high gear to please. Thank you Jerry and Dawn! All of your hard work and attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. Can't say enough about this trip, the crew, or the catamaran... other than we will be back!

    Lynne,

    The trip was great, extremely enjoyable. One of the best vacations we've ever had. Dawn and Jerry couldn't have been more accommodating. They literally took care of our every need. We're hoping to see them again soon.

    A group of couples & friends that we booked aboard 58' Catamaran Braveheart in July, 2016 said:

    Lynne,

    I'm happy to give you some feedback. You helped us immensely. Your communications with us was excellent. You were always available for questions and quick to respond. It was great having you and carefree charters handle our trip.

    The overall charter experience was incredible. The Braveheart had everything we could possibly want and more. The available diving gear and on board compressor were a huge bonus. The cabins were well appointed and very comfortable.

    Jerry and Dawn did an unbelievable job. They were always asking what we wanted to do, where we wanted to go and always did everything in their power to make it happen. They knew everything about the local history, landscapes and all the available services, stores and sites at shore stops. They were very familiar with and experienced in diving the variety of scuba sites. They were always sure to emphasize the importance of safety on the boat and on dive trips.

    The food and drinks were outstanding. The variety and quality of all the meals was excellent.

    I definitely hope to return to the Braveheart at some point in the future. If any friends or family are thinking about a charter in the BVI, I will insist they use Braveheart. I cant think of one negative experience on our trip or one negative comment about Carefree or Braveheart. Even the weather was perfect and no one had any control over that. Thanks again to all.

    Wish I were still there. Here is some feedback from the trip:

    Captain Jerry & Dawn were fabulous! Very knowledge about the islands and great recommendations for scuba and snorkeling. Captain Jerry taught the kids and my husband how to scuba and took them on their first dive. They LOVED it! He also spent time taking them tubing, teaching them to water ski and wake board. The kids were also able to help tack and steer the boat.

    The food was outstanding! Every meal was well presented and delicious. The drinks in the afternoon were of equal quality if not better than what we tried on the islands. The boat and rooms were well maintained and very clean.

    I appreciate all the time YOU took to help get the charter set up as well as your patience with answering our questions and getting us to fill out the preferences sheet (sorry about the length of time on that!). Everyone I dealt with in setting up this vacation as well as executing it were fabulous. We would definitely book the Braveheart for a cruise again with Captain Jerry and Dawn.

    The memories my family and I have from this will last a lifetime.

    Thanks so much!
