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 two-family group that we booked aboard 65' Catamaran Kelea for Thanksgiving 2018 said:

    Hi Lynne,

    We had a fabulous trip. Everyone had a blast. There were activities and individual facets of the trip that appealed to everyone's tastes and accommodated everyone's needs. Passengers from 10 to 50 years old were happy and satisfied. There was more than enough room for the 9 of us. We were surprised and appreciated the inside and aft spacious living areas.

    Dan and Alli were great. And the food was outstanding! Alli continuously amazed us. True gourmet - and I consider myself a bit of a foodie and a tough critic. The crowning jewel was a full Thanksgiving spread. Dan took us all tubing, water skiing and wake boarding multiple times. Jagger and I also did multiple scuba dives with Dan. They were great hosts, easy to get along with, involved but not intrusive.

    Thank you for all your assistance and for the CYBA gift card (we put it to good use).

    Good morning, Lynne. Please add me to your e-newsletter. I look forward to reading them. Believe me....another charter is in our future....someday. I have to tell you what an amazing vacation our trip was. It was more than I could ever imagine. From the spacious, clean and quite enjoyable yachts, to our amazing crews, the only word that describes the trip is "PERFECT". Alli and Dan were so enjoyable...Dan explained all the history/islands we visited and Alli's food presentations were nothing short of 5* quality. Our crews worked so well together being a tandem sail, and went the extra mile to ensure everyone was comfortable and content. I especially appreciate their help in picking up the Yeti cups and having them ready for our arrival, and scheduling our first night dinner at the marina. I cannot to you how much I appreciate all you did to ensure every point was covered prior to our trip. You couldn't have picked more fitting crews for our group. We are all still talking about the trip, and several of us have already spoke with friends that will be contacting you in the future. Again, thank you so much for all you did for our best vacation yet!

    Lynne, Our stay on Kelea was superb! Alli and Dan were gracious, patient, knowledgeable in both the boat and area, provided excellent service and, overall, very professional while still being humble! The meals were beyond expectations! Overall a five star trip with 5 being the highest rating - highly recommend!

    Denise F., South Carolina

    Our crew was top notch! Sailing, food, boat, places we visited were just amazing. I can't stop telling folks about it. It was a dream vacation really! Thanks,

    Jenni S., Texas

    Good morning Lynne, I would have to say the sailing trip on Kelea was the best vacation we've ever had. Bill and I truly enjoyed everything about the trip. The food was delicious and so well presented, it was like being in a fine dining restaurant every day! Alli took great care of us and made us feel at home. Dan was awesome and took time to explain the workings of the yacht and where we were going each day. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip and I would highly recommend it. We hope to do it again sometime!

    Cindy B., South Carolina

    I can't say one bad thing, this was the most amazing trip ever, the crew was fabulous, the food was out of this world! The boats did well keeping our group as close together as possible. Missing all them already :)

    Hi Lynne,

    I know I sent a few lines with the photos but....Alli, Dan and the kelea were all phenomenal. Best family vacation.

    The boat was beautiful and the perfect size for our 2 families. Alli and Dan keep it in immaculate condition. I'm amazed.

    Alli's ability to whip anything out of the galley kitchen is crazy. This was probably the best 3 meals a day for 7 days in a row that I have ever had. Just when you think it can't get more flavorful or complex she whips out a new incredible dish. We called her the Ina Garten of the yachting world. Plus she has to be the sweetest thing on earth.

    Nothing was ever to much to ask of Dan. More wake-boarding, snorkeling, hiking, diving, fishing. We did it all. Multiple times. We felt safe, secure and well taken care of.

    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.
