A family that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' for Christmas 2020 in the USVI said: Lynne, To say that this was the ideal family vacation just doesn’t seem to do it justice. From the moment you called after my email inquiry, you made every part of this experience both personal and perfectly tailored to our needs.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' in March 2022 said:

Thank you, Lynne! We are in the airport now and very sad about leaving. The charter was perfect. The yacht was superb and Jack and Kaycee were even better. They could not have been more competent, professional, and fun. They were the ultimate hosts. Jack did everything with ease and confidence and always with a giant smile on his face. He vilified us to some amazing sites and fantastic dives. He was also an incredible dive master for us. Kaycee was a genius in the galley. She created amazing dishes day in and day out. We photographed every breakfast, lunch, and dinner because the presentation was so spectacular. 

We went around with our rose, thorn, and Bud comments last night and every single bid was to do this again! We all look forward to working with you again. Thank you for a truly memorable week! We absolutely loved it!

Tom and Margot R., Massachusetts

Hi Lynne,

Tom said it best in his email response to you -- we strongly concur with his rave review of our charter on all aspects! Jack and Kaycee deserve our standing ovation! I'm still singing their praises to my friends. We loved the Island Hoppin' boat - the layout and seating options were perfect for all of us. You, also, went above and beyond with your timely communication, information, and reminders. We appreciate all you did to make our charter a successful reality!  Please do put us on your mailing list!  

Best regards,

Deanna V., Pennsylvania

Hello Lynne!

We had a simply amazing time with Jack and Kaycee! This was my best vacation ever because it was relaxing to eat fascinating food and then scuba dive then more mouth watering food and another scuba dive. Then shower and relax playing board games and cards and Captain Jack and Kaycee even joined in.

It was so wonderful that I spent the flight home talking the couple next to me into booking with you and Jack and Kaycee on Island Hoppin’. These two have such an easy way about them that stress is impossible on this cruise.

We did 11 dives with Divemaster Jack. A day dive the day we arrived followed by a night dive. And onto the best wreck dive of my life. So great we did a night dive on the wreck. We had assisted snorkeling with the sub wing and saw spotted eagle rays and southern rays. We had the best snorkeling of my life.

This photo says it all. I made it my phone's Lock Screen to remind myself to relax. The boat was super roomy and comfy. I didn’t need my sleeping pill the whole time we cruised.

I’m already planning to go at Christmas with the same crew!

Thanks,

Forrest B., Nevada

Lynne,

To say that this was the ideal family vacation just doesn’t seem to do it justice.

Now let’s talk about the boat! Island Hoppin’ and Margaret and Taylor were also the perfect fit for our family of five, including our three boys (ages 20, 18 and 16). The boat accommodated us so well and had plenty of outdoor spaces for us to enjoy during the day and night. Margaret and Taylor were energetic, attentive, flexible, accommodating and so much fun to be with. Over the course of the week we quickly went from fast friends to family and loved our time with them. The food was incredible, the activities (hiking, SCUBA, snorkeling, fishing) were always engaging and the whole week was a relaxing, bonding, unforgettable experience we will forever cherish. Thank you so much for a family vacation that will always be the bar we set for our future trips!

All our best,

Alison L. & Family, Tennessee
