Here's what ​Andre & Alison​ told Carefree Yacht Charters about their ​favorite type of charter group: "We are really easy with all kinds. We most enjoy those that love the sea like we do, that want to snorkel, scuba and enjoy seeing new sea life. We love the sea and are either in, on or under it and delight in sharing it with guests. We have had all of the above categories of guests and got along well with all of them.​"​

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard 50' Catamaran Turquoise Turtle in January 2020 said:

Lynne,

Bonnie and I would like to thank you for your assistance in booking our trip on the Turquoise Turtle with Andre and Alison. As we were making our way home and discussing the trip, I heard the phrase " BEST TRIP EVER " repeated more than once! No doubt it requires a lot of planning, work, patience, seamanship, and people skills to accommodate a group such as ours for a week ...but Andre and Alison made it look easy.  As people they are authentic, understanding, calm, gentle, and extremely competent.  It seemed every time I turned around Alison was preparing another gourmet meal and Andre was answering sailing questions and mixing his famous "Painkillers".  Andre and Alison are special people and do a fabulous job. You should have no hesitations in recommending them to any clients you may have. In all honesty, we passed their name along to other vacationers, 4 times ourselves, before we even got to the airport!

The vessel itself was clean, comfortable, and in tip top shape. The cabins were clean, roomy, well lit and airy. Clearly, their vessel is well cared for and perfectly organized for handling this type of activity. Scuba activities were handled in an orderly fashion and of course we saw innumerable fish species, octopus, squid, the Rhone wreck, etc, etc, etc, snorkeling as well was enjoyed by all. It was alot of fun!!

This was the 2nd charter we have taken in the last 5 years. I will guarantee you that if anyone I know expresses an interest in this type of vacation, I will be recommending Andre and Alison, no question, hands down, without a doubt!!

Again, Thank you and please feel free to share our thoughts as you wish.

Scott J., Wisconsin

Hi Lynne

Thank you for following up. We had a truly fantastic trip with Alison and Andre! They were wonderful hosts, guides, and company for the trip. The Turquoise Turtle is a beautiful and well-maintained boat. Alison is an amazing cook - every meal was delicious, extremely well planned and presented, and she took into account everything we asked for on our preference form. She even managed to find pumpkin on the islands and made us an unbelievable American Thanksgiving dinner! Andre is a knowledgeable captain and guide to the islands. He had a perfect itinerary based on what we said we wanted to do, yet was able to seamlessly adapt it to changing weather conditions as needed. It was awesome when he proposed a little wakeboarding behind the dingy once it was clear that there would be no wind for kiteboarding that week. It was a blast! We had five memorable guided dives - including the Rhone which was our first wreck dive. Both Andre and Alison were great to dive with.

Most importantly Andre and Alison made us feel extremely welcome on their boat and were great people to spend a week with. We would definitely recommend the trip to others and would like to do it again ourselves.

Crew

Andre and Alison Stroebel are from South Africa and have been married for 32 years. They love the sea and are either on it, in it or under it. They started sailing together even before they were married and raced Hobie Cats as a hobby. Soon they started sailing larger catamarans off the unpredictable east and west coasts of South Africa. In 2011 they left South Africa on the Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro Yacht Race on their catamaran Rat Catcher, crossing the Atlantic and ending second in their class. Since then they have been cruising in the Caribbean
