Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Copper Penny in March 2022 said:

Hello Lynne,

What a FABULOUS trip!  We really didn’t know what to expect other than Nancy and Sharon have been telling us about the Cooper Penny for almost a decade! Dreams do come true, despite all the COVID protocol hurdles! We did it with lots of good planning help from you and Sharon. The land and water taxi arrangements were excellent. The accommodations? Well,  the care taken to maintain the Copper Penny in such gorgeous condition is a tribute to the owner and crew. What a beautiful boat and 8 lovely nights aboard!

Allí and Dan were beyond expectations too! They are quite a duo and very perceptive and accommodating in assisting us. Chef Alli was full of culinary delights. We had not imagined gourmet meals three times a day plus appetizers! We totally enjoyed the two of them.

Lynne, we also appreciate the time you took to answer all our questions and concerns. Our entire charter experience was totally above and beyond.

Kudos and many thanks!

Tricia S. and Yolande C., Florida

Hello Lynne,

We think it took a full week to get back into our mainstream lives because  of being so pampered and cared for by Dan and Alli. We would not want to be in such close quarters with anyone else. Their attention to detail and their awareness of the moment  was extraordinary.  They were unobtrusive, and yet always there to help if needed.

Alli is a creative chef who put plates of beauty in front of us three meals a day. They were like looking at art pieces. The food was of Michelin quality, with great variety and style. We enjoyed cocktails with appetizers as well each day.

Our daily activities while on the charter varied with Dan paying close attention to our desires as to what we wanted to do at each stop. Snorkeling, kayaking and swimming were all a part of each day. We were able to go ashore a couple of times to check out the Bitter End and the Soggy Dollar. Alli joined us for the walk throughThe Baths which was a wonderful experience.

The Copper Penny is a beautiful catamaran with lovely comfortable bedrooms which are spacious and well appointed. The common areas are great for resting, reading and helping the captain hoist the sails. This vessel is so well cared for that she looks as good as she did when we sailed with her in 2014. It was a true pleasure to return and find it in such good shape. A nod to the owner for his care in maintaining this beautiful vessel.

Lynne, we can’t thank you enough for your consistent attention to our questions and inquiries (especially about COVID protocols). You were able to help put many details into place so that we had smooth connections from place to place. Because of this we had a fabulous cruise in a wonderful part of the world.

Good Afternoon -

Jeff & Barb couldn’t have expressed it better below. For Dan and I, being our first trip – we were absolutely blown away, not just by the beauty of the BVIs, but the Copper Penny (clean, spacious, beautiful) and lastly Jim & Amanda. They over delivered on any expectation we had, especially the food! A truly remarkable experience. Looking forward to our next BVI getaway!

Lynne – thank you again for your guidance thru the Covid protocols, the extra hoops definitely were worth the adventure and your direction was appreciated to get us there.

Good morning Lynne,

As always, it was a remarkable vacation. Half of our group were returning veterans and the other half were new to the BVI, Copper Penny and Jim and Amanda. The islands were in great shape and the weather was perfect. The Copper Penny looked and operated like a new boat. And Jim and Amanda went above and beyond to make our trip perfect! The locations we visited, activities organized and of course the food was over the top!

We also want to thank you personally for everything you did to help us navigate the Covid policies and procedures in the USVI and BVI and coordinating all the ground and water transportation. All your contacts were competent and professional, so everything went smoothly.

Thanks again, hope you have a great week!

Good afternoon Lynne,

Sadly, we are back at home after a fabulous week aboard Copper Penny! Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, you matched our group with Alli & Dan! We fell in love with them! Such a great team!

Alli completely blew us away with her gourmet cooking. Truly fine dining! The presentation was like something from Food and Wine magazine! Fresh fish, Lobster Carbonara, crab cakes, vanilla Brioche French toast with blueberry compote, eggs benedict, ending the week with a fabulous filet cooked to perfection. She also made a special Key Lime cheesecake for David’s birthday. He was thrilled!

Dan planned our trip to include many beautiful stops with great snorkeling  locations. He was so very attentive to keep us just active enough! We enjoyed the kayaks & paddleboards. The guys loved talking with Dan about sailing.

Copper Penny is an awesome boat. The boat is well maintained and super clean. Alli & Dan never let up on cleaning! The cabins are very spacious.Our beds were very comfortable. Alli made sure we had fresh towels & everything was tidy.

We enjoyed the USVI’s. There are some beautiful locations & we were thrilled to be able to travel there. However, it doesn’t compare to the beautiful beaches in the BVI’s or the Grenadines.

I asked David if he wanted to say anything and he said “10 out of a 10!”

Lynne, we appreciate your help in planning such great charters. You have always been accessible & attentive to our questions. Especially, during this crazy last year of COVID. We look forward to our next adventure with the help of Carefree Charters.

Lynne,

Stacey and I both had a fabulous time. I will start with Dan and Alli. They were excellent hosts that made us feel welcome and well taken care of. They could not have been better.  

The food was outstanding!  The boat was outstanding! The boat was very clean and comfortable.

I hesitate to let you use our recommendation because I don't want them booked up for next year!!

Thank you for your help and thank you for putting us on the Copper Penny with such a wonderful crew!

Vince and Stacey T., Texas

Our week aboard Copper Penny with Dan & Alli was our best experience yet! Lynne at Carefree Yacht Charters was so helpful keeping us on time with contracts, checklists, payments and updated on COVID guidelines. Copper Penny was in immaculate condition and very comfortable for our 3 couple group. Dan and Alli were amazing! Together they worked tirelessly to attend to all our needs. We always felt safe with Dan at the helm and the boat was clean and organized at all times. Alli is a phenomenal chef! The variety and presentation of meals was incredible and we enjoyed everything she prepared. Our week was way too short! Hopefully we can return soon to Copper Penny with our new friends Dan & Alli at the Helm!

    Diving

    SCUBA DIVING ON COPPER PENNY

    The Virgin Islands are ideal waters to dive in. The water temperatures remain constant between 79F in winter & 85F in summer months. Average dive visibility is 80Ft. The BVI has over 75 dive sites that range in depth from 50 – 85Ft. No wetsuit is necessary in the summer and a 3mm shorty is suitable for winter months. A dive skin or rash guard is advisable to wear anytime.

    With reefs teeming with large fish and healthy corals, the Virgin Islands are the ideal place to SCUBA dive. There are many shipwrecks to explore including the RMS Rhone and the Chikuzen. The water is crystal clear and most dive sites are protected from the waves providing for comfortable entry and exit from the water. The Virgin Islands sits atop a plateau so most dives are fringing reefs and shallow pinnacles, the reef face is protected by excellent mooring systems, maintained by the BVI's National Parks Trust.
