What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A two family group that we booked aboard 65' Catamaran Kelea in June, 2018 said: Alli, Dan and the Kelea were all phenomenal. Best family vacation. Most importantly, I need to thank you. I feel like you helped me pick this magical combination of exactly what we needed and wanted just by asking me a few questions. I said multiple times during our trip how you nailed it. I have already given your name to one of my patients who asked and that was before we even left. Your promptness and attention to detail were noticed. And by the way Alli and Dan have incredible things to say about you as well. Melissa L. Florida

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard 65' Catamaran Kelea in November 2019 said:

Hi Lynne,

Wanted to send a quick email...  The experience was absolutely fantastic in all aspects.

Yacht: Very nice yacht, enjoyed the real wood inside which I'm guessing isn't used as much anymore. We had plenty of space for everything we did.

Crew of Dan & Alli: Both are really great people. Genuine, interesting, and experienced professionals. They run a great ship, everything was very well done and we were more than taken care of.

Cuisine served aboard: Alli is a really good chef. All the meals were spot on. So good that I think dish washing was easy, because we pretty much "licked" the plates clean.

Overall charter experience: Again everything was amazing. We hope to be fortunate enough to be able to do it again.

Thanks again,

Brannon B., Colorado

A family that we booked aboard 65' Catamaran Kelea in June, 2019 said:

Hi Lynne,

This will be a very easy review to write. We had the greatest vacation! I would be honored to speak with anyone regarding your service as well as kelea, and Alli and Dan.

There is so much I could say but will try to keep my comments clear and concise. Your focus on who we are and what we wanted led to the perfect boat and crew. In addition you kept me well informed and on task during the time leading to the charter. I can’t thank you enough. Alli and Dan were the best, we are excited to call them friends. In fact I texted with them tonight. The food was great, the boat was great, and we loved the days they planned for us. It was simply a perfect vacation with our new friends Alli and Dan.

I can recommend you and carefree with 100% confidence. We loved our time on board kelea. Very special crew on a great boat. Happy to talk live if I can help with any details!

Sorry for my delay in getting back to you on this, just getting back to life and wishing we had more time on the boat!!

The booking through Carefree Charters could not have been a better experience. Lynne was beyond knowledgeable about the different boating options, which islands were better than others and how best to plan for our trip. She and her team did an amazing job to help make this once in a lifetime trip that much more memorable.

We had the best experience about Kelea with the amazing crew of Dan and Alli. From the minute we were dropped of by our transportation till the minute we left, every part of this Charter was beyond top notch. We were welcomed with smiles and prosecco, plus fun snacks and drinks for the kids, which made the start of this trip perfect. Every day we were able to see new islands, new ports and snorkel or swim as we wished, as Captain Dan was a fantastic guide. All the while Alli was on board creating amazing food options for our picky eaters all the way up to us adults who loved all of her creations. This trip is a must do, we are already talking about booking it again next year, as the whole experience was that great. Thanks again, Lynne, Dan & Alli!

Newsletter is good by me, something to take my mind of work is always welcome.

Thanks again.

Kelea’s Crew

Captain Dan’s passion for the water started at an early age along the coast of Delaware. He developed his skills after moving to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, where he learned to read the wind and the water for both surfing and sailing. He obtained his Captain’s license in North Carolina, and quickly began guiding on the water and sharing his love of nature and the sea.

Dan worked on Bald Head Island, North Carolina helping in the development of an outdoor adventure company. He obtained his US Sailing Association Certification and
