Catamaran Island Hoppin’ is a Carefree Yacht Charters affordable pick for families, couples, divers, foodies, or special occasions.

Here's what Jamie & Susannah told Carefree Yacht Charters about their fun factor: "Well to start with we have "funny" accents so we've been told by our guests! Jamie and I are very active and always up for a laugh so if they want island tour guides, people to swim/dive with, or go ashore and party (within reason of course!) we do it all. We enjoy pulling out the island hoppin' shot ski for the guests and we also now have a disco ball, we are always ready for a good time! Whilst we pride ourselves on being professional we aren't afraid to laugh at ourselves too - if you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at? :)"

What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A family that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' in February, 2018 said: I can't say enough about this vessel. We suffered no boat envy in any of the mooring fields we visited and I would occasionally just walk about the deck touching things and feeling pride in just having the sense to go with such a vessel even though it was mostly a combination of just luck and your good work in getting me there. I'd be surprised if your ears were not burning during our charter as Sus, Jamie and I were all talking about your professionalism and other great qualities during the charter. I've already given out your name and company to interested people. Your most loyal customer, Rob Hoffman, USCG licensed Master 1600 tons, 2nd Mate unlimited, oceans

    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A family that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' in February, 2019 said:

    Lynne, Let me describe our charter on the Island Hopopin in one word: "UNBELIEVABLE". This was our first catamaran charter, but I can definitely say it won't be our last. Captain Jamie and Chef/First Mate Susannah were added benefits and were on top of their game the entire time. Not only was Jamie a first rate captain, he was also a great mixologist and some of his drinks were better than the famous Soggy Dollar Bar and Willie T's. Susannah's meals were a owrk of art, delicious, presented beautifully and at dinner, deserts topped off the evening. The Island Hoppin was in tip top shape and was meticulously maintained. The cabins had adequate space and with very comfortable beds. As far as trip itinerary, every evening or morning, Jamie would present us a couple of options for the next day/morning and the group decided on the plan. From then on, it was nothing but smooth sailing. We look forward to our next charter. Lynne, thank you for your help and guidance and we will contact you again when we plan our next charter.

    A multi-generational family group that we booked in tandem aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' and 56' Catamaran Playtime said:

    Lynne, first of all, a summary of who we are: There were three generations totaling 18 people ranging in age from 5 to 77. The occasion was a family trip to celebrate grandma and grandpa's 50th wedding anniversary. We have chartered sail boats in the Caribbean over a dozen times and three of those were with two generations, including some cousins. All three of our sons and four of our grandsons like to fish, no matter where they are. Our general conclusion is that this week long experience on two catamarans could not have been better! The two crews easily met all of our preferences for sailing, family activities, food, and overall provided a fun experience for everyone.

    Regarding your services, you confirmed our initial impression of the Island Hoppin' crew (Jamie and Sue), and then suggested an equally good crew/boat for the tandem charter (Tyler and Kelsey). You also stayed in frequent communication and made sure all the details were covered and that the contracting and payment process was timely. Thank you.

    The two yachts were well equipped, laid out so that everyone could easily and safely move around, which provided both a comfortable and safe sailing adventure for all.

    The two crews fulfilled all of our expectations and specific preferences and did so with a very positive spirit and hospitality. We especially wanted to experience sailing daily, weather permitting, and this was done.

    The food was excellent. We had a couple of food allergies in our group and it was apparent from the first few minutes on board that this was handled appropriately and would not be a problem. The meals, appetizers, snacks and anything to do with food and drink were responsive to our preferences, well prepared and presented, and always added to the experience.

    Overall, several adults observed that, "it could not have been better!" We agree.

    A repeat client and family that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' for Christmas 2018 said:

    I will gladly pass along a review from my husband Ken who after 32 years knows he better write something for me when I ask.

    From the first day we walked on board, Jamie and Susannah made us feel welcome from the start, like we knew them already. The Island Hoppin was new and state of the art...incredibly roomy and comfortable. Jamie and Susannah always had a plan for every day. We picked popular places to visit as well as harbors where we were the only boat in site. Jamie arranged for us to rent "Mokes" on Anegada and helped us to lay out a plan for a day of snorkeling at different locations throughout the day. One highlight (among many) was a delicious arranged dinner of grilled lobster that was the best we had ever tasted. There were too many water toys to count and Jamie was always volunteering to put them out despite the effort it took to put them in and take them out of the water. Susannah was an outstanding cook from scallops to crusted pork to lemon ricotta pancakes to turkey dinner sandwiches, we ate like kings and never left a crumb on our plates. 5 star treatment and a definite thumbs up! We'll be back.

    And this is a long review from my new son in law Zach who at least answered me incredibly fast.

    I have zero complaints - nothing could be improved.

    And this is a review from my favorite middle daughter Paige and the only daughter who remains in our will.

    - each meal was uniquely different and spectacular individually. We had a hard time picking which one we liked best. She really kept in mind our days activities, planning each meal accordingly by time and also protein and healthiness level. We felt energized and delighted by each meal.

    - Jamie did not hesitate to put out every single beach toy even if we only used it for a little bit. He was a trooper about the hot dog as well. We thought we could be a pain but he laughed along with us when we all fell in the water.

    - We had a plan in mind when we first came to the boat, but Jamie sat us down and went through each day with us. It wasn't a strict plan, it allowed for some flexibility, but it was a plan nonetheless that we were thrilled about. He went above and beyond to offer us every single experience the BVI could offer without us feeling overwhelmed with getting to a certain area on time.

    - The crews attitude was spectacular. Even when it poured, the winds changed, they lost a hat, or potentially a paddle board, they stayed positive the entire time. They laughed about everything and were never stressed or angry. The mood on the boat was constantly relaxing and positive.

    All kidding aside, this trip was the best vacation I've ever had with my family. We have grown children living all over the US and never get to spend enough time with them. This trip gave me the luxury of all of us being together under one roof while being completely pampered and spoiled by the beautiful boat, the scenery, and Jamie and Susannah. This crew and this boat were special in so many ways. Jamie and Susannah are incredibly talented and mature way beyond their years. Jamie is without a doubt a very skilled captain and even when the winds kicked up and a major storm passed, he handled the boat with such confidence that we could relax and enjoy the adventure. Susannah pampered us with so many fabulous meals that we called ourselves the "clean plate club" and we argued over which dishes were the best. The boat is gorgeous and we used every space and especially loved being on the top of the boat and watching the islands go by as we sailed. One of the best things about the trip was the call the crew made to me ahead of time. We were able to discuss our needs and hopes for the week. When we arrived, Jamie and Susannah took everything we talked about and made it even better! They took the time to arrange a few excursions in advance and we loved everything that was planned. Because of this, I could immediately relax and know I was in great hands! Each day we discussed the itinerary and any changes we would like to make. There was the right amount of planning and flexibility that led to the absolute perfect trip.

    And thank you Lynne, for being so incredibly organized. We feel we could not be in better hands. You took great care of us from the beginning to end. You rock. Best regards and we hope to do this again soon!
