What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A group of couples that we booked aboard with Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela on their previous 46' Catamaran in January, 2018 said: First of all, I want to express how much I appreciate ALL you did to make our BVI vacation a trip of a lifetime. From the first phone call to the last, you were patient with all my questions and had all the answers needed to made the decision making much simpler on our end. As this was our first charter, we had no idea where to start and how to proceed. You made the process fun and exciting - most importantly...you instilled trust. Lisa, H., Montana

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

Lynne: I wanted to give you my thoughts an opinions regarding the 6 day charter we had on Flotation Therapy that occurred 2/3/19- 2/9/19. We were are group of six adults (three couples) from the upper Midwest looking for an escape to warmer latitudes. The trip met or exceeded all of our expectations!

Carefree Charters: We are very pleased that we worked through your company to arrange this charter. You were very helpful in steering us to the right boat and crew for kind of trip we wanted and the price point we were looking for. Your recommendations all turned out to be spot on. We were pleased with the professional manner in which you handled the charter agreement. You were always available to answer questions. We never felt like we were in the dark. The pre-charter procedures and checklist were also very helpful.

Andrew and Michaela: I cannot say enough good things about Captain Andrew and Michaela! They were gracious hosts, always available to answer questions and serve our needs, even if we did not yet know what those needs were. They work together as a great team. It was fun just to watch them handle the boat and navigate to each day's destination. Andrew always had wonderful recommendations for places to snorkel, paddle board, hike or just relax on a beach. He clearly has the skill and knowledge necessary to conduct a safe and entertaining cruise. Michaela's meals were fantastic! Each one equal to or better than the one before. Not only were they all delicious but they were all plated and presented with the style of a five star restaurant.

Flotation Therapy: The boat is new, having only been put into service last fall. But even so, it clearly has been well cared for. Everything was spotless and all the plumbing, lights, sound and equipment worked perfectly.

In summary I can say that I would happy to give my highest recommendation to Carefree Charters, Andrew and Michaela and Floatation Therapy!

Lynne, just a quick note about our recent charter on Floatation therapy with Andrew and Micheala. The entire trip was fantastic. It was everything we expected and more. Andrew and Micheala were terrific guides and even better hosts. The food was outstanding. Micheala definitely knows how to serve a meal. All of her meals were like eating in a top notch restaurant. While stopped at the island of Anegada, we were told from a crew on another boat (the name escapes me) that we were with the best crew in the BVI. I wholeheartedly agree. Andrew put us on some fantastic snorkeling spots and showed us some great places in the BVI. Overall grade A++. I would definitely consider cruising again, especially if it was with Andrew and Micheala. They set a pretty high bar. The only downside to the whole trip was coming home to 6+ inches of snow. Thanks for your help in setting this up.

Hello Lynne -

First of all, I want to express how much I appreciate ALL you did to make our BVI vacation a trip of a lifetime. From the first phone call to the last, you were patient with all my questions and had all the answers needed to made the decision making much simpler on our end. As this was our first charter, we had no idea where to start and how to proceed. You made the process fun and exciting - most importantly...you instilled trust. Even through the chaos with the hurricanes and all the uncertainty they brought, you were always available and continued to communicate updates which gave us the confidence to move forward. Although we were just one small charter in your busy business, your personal attention and constant accessibility made us feel important and valued. I have already referred a couple friends to Carefree and we will most certainly turn to you for our next trip.

The matchup with with Flip Flop, Cap'n Andy and Mac was perfect - we honestly could not imagine a better crew. From the moment we arrived to the very last detail of our departure, they worked tirelessly to ensure our trip was everything and more. They mapped out a route with all the highlights of the Islands and somehow included everything on our long list of requests. It was obvious they put a great deal of time and thought into our custom tailored itinerary, gourmet meals, extensive cocktail list, and daily fun-filled adventures.

We couldn't ask for a better Captain - Andrew was professional, confident, proficient, and trustworthy. His quiet sense of humor, adventurous spirit and fun nature was exciting to be around (not to mention, he can fold a mean napkin!). Andy's skills and knowledge of the area made us feel safe and our wishes were his #1 priority. Michaela - wow...she outdid herself with every gourmet meal. She took such care and time in preparing each dish and they were nothing short of incredible and delicious (we have photos of each meal to prove it!). It seems her talents are endless. As our dive guide, she was confident, knowledgeable and took great pride in showing us the best dive spots. Having grown up in the Islands, she has extensive 'local' insight and we loved hearing her stories and experiences of her life there. With their combined knowledge of the Virgin Islands, both past and present, they provided great conversation - there wasn't a single wild or serious question they couldn't answer. No request was too big or too small, Andy and Mac went above and beyond to show us the time of our lives. It's apparent they are a perfect match for chartering and their desire to please is a gift. We just simply loved their company and look forward to the next time our paths cross (hopefully our next charter - can't imagine it without them)!!!

Regarding the Islands themselves, they were inviting and amazing. Since this was my first trip, I don't have a pre-hurricane comparison, but it's apparent they have rebounded incredibly well. We had the fortune of small crowds, easy mooring, clean and beautiful beaches, flourishing reefs, vibrant marine life, and very welcoming and gracious residents. Many of the beach bars, restaurants, and shops are open and full of fun - now is the perfect opportunity. I highly encourage anyone considering a BVI vacation to take advantage of the Islands now and in doing so, will also help in their recovery.

Thanks again Lynne for everything - this truly was the vacation of a lifetime...we can't wait to go back! I'll forward a few pictures as well - we have so many great shots, but I promise to only send a few.

Enjoy,

Lisa H., Montana

Dear Lynne,

We wanted to express what a wonderful vacation we had in the BVI. We really appreciate your thoughtful planning and assistance to Lisa (main client) to ensure we had everything we needed on our adventure.

Our stay on the Flip Flop was better than we could have ever imagined. Captain Andrew and Michaela worked tirelessly to ensure our trip was amazing. For a young couple, they exuded maturity and confidence. Andrew, with his calm demeanor, kept us on schedule with our lengthy wish list of places to see and activities to do and that was not an easy task with our crew of personalities. Andrew's competency on the water and was apparent. He and Michaela worked seamlessly to get us underway sailing or motoring to our next destination. It was clearly evident that they were knowledgeable and experienced.

Michaela, growing up in the area, had extensive knowledge of the most beautiful dive and snorkeling spots. She guided us on a couple beautiful hikes with mountain top viewing areas that offered a 360-degree view of almost the entire BVI area. Michaela's intimate knowledge of the islands and the people gave us a glimpse of the local flavor of the islands outside of the tourist areas. Michaela also amazed us every day with daily meals you could expect at a five star restaurant. With the small galley and limited resources, Michaela created magnificent meals down to the homemade pasta noodles. She did not skimp on any detail and clearly took pride in everything she did. Andy was a no slouch in the kitchen either and was a master at unique napkin folding which was a special touch each day.

Michaela and Andy were a fun-loving and clearly capable couple that covered each detail of our trip to make the experience truly outstanding. We will definitely seek out this couple on future adventures.

Lastly, before our trip, were concerned to be a burden on the people of the BVI due to the recent devastating hurricane; however, the local people were thrilled to see us and for the most part we could not even tell the damage that had been done. The common hot spots were up and running with full service. For us tourists, the one positive is that we could enjoy many areas without huge crowds of other tourists. We had the most incredible bays all to ourselves on several nights. We would not hesitate visiting this beautiful area again and encourage you to go now before the throngs of tourists return. The local people need your support and you will not be disappointed.
