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."

Rates from $20,000 to $28,000. View availability, rate details and current Special Offer.

A repeat client and group of couples that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Playtime in May, 2018 said: Hello Lynne, Just a quick note to let you know that our week spent on Playtime was absolutely fabulous. 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. PS We would love to receive your newsletters.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Playtime in June 2020 for a USVI-only charter said:

We had a wonderful time! A dream trip!! Sad to see Tyler and Kelsey retire from captaining, but understand they are ready to move to their next chapter! They are such great hosts and chefs! The meals served were more elegant than we really needed. Sometimes a good ham or tuna fish salad sandwich would have sufficed!! Everything was planned to cater to our needs and with the restrictions on BVI travel, we know they had to keep things new and exciting with limited itinerary choices. Their knowledge of the islands was wonderful.

Look forward to traveling soon on another charter!! Thank you for all your help, patience, and assistance with our group during these crazy times! Please put us on your newsletter! Look forward to talking to you again in the near future!!

A family that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Playtime in January 2020 said:

Lynne,

"Words cannot even begin to express how much this charter exceeded our expectations.  Everything from the scenery of the islands, to the activities on and off the boat, to the food preparation and presentation, to the laid back hospitality of Tyler and Kelsey were above and beyond anything that we could have hoped for or imagined. Our children loved every minute of the vacation and I only worry that no future vacation will ever meet the bar that has been set! Tyler and Kelsey especially went out of their way to ensure that this vacation will provide lifelong memories and smiles for ourselves and for our children. Thank you!"

Would definitely be happy to sign up for a newsletter.

Thanks,

Danny A., New Hampshire

Hi Lynne,

We had an amazing time on our Playtime Charter. The dives were great and the overall experience was fantastic. Food was delicious. Tyler and Kelsey were experienced and took us places we had never been. We enjoyed sailing with them.

We will contact you again, we enjoyed working with you. 

Thanks again.
