Here's what Tyler & Kelsey told Carefree Yacht Charters about their fun-factor aboard Playtime: "You should know it’s all in the name! It’s PLAYTIME! This is your vacation and there are opportunities for activities at every turn. We know this area very well and can get you moving in the right direction. We have water skis, tubes, wakeboards, paddle boards, scuba diving, snorkeling, cliff jumping, board games, movie nights, comfy places to read your book, cocktails, party games, pirate shows, and more. Or if fun means relaxing in the sun away from other people and listening to nature pass you by we have plenty of that as well. Be sure to come up with a few good jokes if you’re heading our way though. We’re always looking for a laugh."

    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

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

    Hello Lynne,

    Just a quick note to let you know that our week spent on Playtime was absolutely fabulous. The catamaran was spacious, spotless and offered all the amenities one could possibly ask for. The highlight of this "bucket list" trip was our crew! Kelsey and Tyler put 100% into making our vacation an unforgettable experience. From the amazing meals, their knowledge of the islands, and the ability to gear the vacation to suit 8 people's wishes, Kelsey and Tyler are true professionals.

    Our one complaint would be that the trip didn't last long enough :)

    Thank you to Carefree charters and to Kelsey and Tyler for such an awesome time.

    Sincerely,

    Kelly & Claudio M., Canada

    A group of couples that we booked with Captain Tyler and Chef Kelsey on their previous 50' Catamaran in June, 2017 said:

    Hi Lynne,

    Please sign us up for the newsletter!

    We had a wonderful time with Tyler & Kelsey! They are fabulous hosts! We immediately felt comfortable & relaxed on White House. White House is a beautiful boat. The queen suites are spacious & extremely comfortable! The food was incredible! Every meal was delicious. Some of our favorites were the Blueberry Stuffed French Toast and Indian Burrito lunch. Tyler & Kelsey gave us lots of daily excursion options. Our time on the boat was everything and more for the perfect get away!

    This was our second charter to book with Carefree Charters. Lynne has been most helpful in guiding us to the perfect fit for our vacation.

    Thank you again! We look forward to many more charters!

    Lynne,

    Good morning.

    Another "Outstanding" experience with Carefree Yacht Charters.

    Joe and I can't say enough about Kelsey and Tyler - aboard The White House. I didn't think it could improve over last year's trip, but I have to say - it did. These guys outdid themselves taking care of the 4 of us for the week we spent with them. We would not hesitate to re-book with them or Carefree Yacht Charters.

    Our "hats off" to all of you.

    Laurie & Joe M., Texas
