Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A repeat client and family that we booked aboard 62' Catamaran Callista in March, 2019 said:

Roland & Vanessa were absolutely amazing! The deck hand, Hugh, was the most incredible 20 yr old I have met. They were a great team to dive with and handled our 5 divers flawlessly. The sea life was as if they called and appeared - sharks, rays, lobster, barracuda, etc.

The food was outstanding!

I can't say enough about this crew. I just wish they had a 10 pax for our growing family when we return! We would love to sail with them again.

Lynne, I appreciate you helping to make this happen once again. I think next time we would be looking towards St Vincent and the Grenadines. Thank you for everything!!!

A group of family & friends that we booked aboard with Roland & Vanessa on a previous 59' Catamaran for New Years, 2014-2015 said:

Dear Joe and Lynne,

On behalf of Anne and our group, I wanted to confirm that we had a wonderful vacation on Flow with Roland and Vanessa. The weather as warm, sunny and breezy, and our crew were knowledgeable, fun to be with, and most important, safe and competent on the water captaining the boat.

We all enjoyed Vanessa's cooking a great deal. She was able to use spices and flavors we normally would not have in the Midwest and she was provisioned consistent with our preferences. Her attention to detail, connections with South Africa and Europe and interest in our satisfaction was great. We also appreciated the champagne at breakfast, beach coolers and local island knowledge, which was helpful during the busy new year's week.

As mentioned, the trip was great. Our adult kids had a great time, and so did everyone else. The quality of Flow and the relationship with Vanessa and Roland were significant contributors, not to mention the beautiful water, islands, and fun!

Thanks for helping us too! It helps to have a resource to sort things out and answer the many questions in preparation for a trip like this.
