Here's what Tyler & Erika told Carefree Yacht Charters about their favorite type of group: "Erika is a fan of adults that party, Tyler loves families and kids. Foodies are fun, we have had quite a few on our boat and Erika always winds up with new recipes to try. Honestly, variety is the fun of the job for us. This past season we have had tons of families with kids as young as four, grandparents and a 70 year-old diver, we have done a tandem with 14 drinking adults, we have had a kid with epilepsy, a women who preferred to wear no clothes at all, a mom with a disorder where she could not walk anywhere by herself, a honeymoon...the list goes on. We genuinely love them all!"

Noteworthy Details: Tyler & Erika won "Best Crew" for yachts 51' or under at the November, 2017 crewed charter yacht show in the USVI! They won this award while aboard their previous 47' catamaran.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

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

Hi Lynne,

Howard and I want to thank you for everything! We thought you were amazing - totally organized and clear, helpful, full of info, great communication - all the way from beginning to end :) And, we very much appreciated your thinking about pushing the dates and being the go-between and making it happen - Tyler said it was your idea, and it made a huge difference - we had great weather!!

Our charter experience was really nice, and a perfect way to spend time with our adult kids and their partners. Viramar was immaculate, attractive, comfortable, very functional in terms of storage, and we appreciated having multiple outdoor spaces to hang out.

Tyler and Erika worked incredibly hard... it was very apparent that they wanted us to be happy and comfortable and safe. Erika is a creative chef and baker, and everything that came out of her galley was fresh and delicious. And, with our restriction of no fish and shellfish due to an allergy, she got really creative - I know that normally alot of what she makes is fish and shellfish but she was up for this challenge. We celebrated some birthdays onboard, and Erika went out of her way to help us celebrate with beautiful desserts and candles. She is a lovely and interesting person and it was really nice to be her guests! Tyler is completely full of energy. He was always encouraging fun and activities. We teased him that he is like a camp counselor. He was informative and patient when teaching us sailing and scuba. And, we felt very comfortable with him at the helm. It was nice to have "map time" at least once a day, and he was completely open to doing what we wanted and going where we wanted. He is also a wonderful photographer - the best pics we have were the ones he took! Both Erika and Tyler made us feel very welcome and at home...

Bottom line is we would highly recommend you and would highly recommend Viramar and Tyler and Erika!!

Carefree Yacht Charter was comprehensive in the booking, planning, and lead up to our charter. The process was made easy and we will certainly book again through Carefree for our next Charter.

Viramar, the boat, was pristine, spacious, it had all the amenities that we could want and more.

Tyler, the captain, was exceptionally competent as a boat captain and a dive master. We sailed and motored the entire BVI. Sailing was a priority for us and he included all the guests in the process. The diving was outstanding, Two of us became certified as basic divers and 3 more did advanced training. He is clearly a skilled diver and instructor. Our favorite part was his storytelling, he is very knowledgeable about the history of diving and the BVI in general.

Erika, our chef, fed us beyond our expectation. Every meal was delicious, perfectly presented and varied. She modified the menu to suit my daughter who was not a seafood fan, but after trying Erikas meals she is a convert! Erika was attentive, always offering drinks and snacks, and still tidying the boat and assisting Tyler with boating and diving.

It was a spectacular week, there in nothing about our experience that we would change, and I would highly recommend Tyler, Erika, Viramar and Lynne at Carefree Yacht Charters.

Lynne:

We had a great time on the Viramar with Erika and Tyler. They were a perfect fit for our family and always were seeking ways in which to enrich the experience. Frankly, we were stunned by the quality and complexity of the meals that Erika provided throughout the week. Tyler was an excellent Captain and did so much to get and keep the kids engaged with the trip including nightly sessions with the charts showing where we sailed and jointly discussing options on where the adventure could/would take us the next day. We had the perfect blend of adventure/activities with relaxation and rest.

I should also say that the boat was amazing. Impeccably outfitted and spotlessly maintained. We felt safe and secure. Always cool cabins at night and plenty of hot water when you need it. Moreover, they treat the boat as if it is their own. If I were the owner, I would feel grateful to have such dedicated staff that is always focused on maintaining the readiness of the boat and preserving the asset.

Kudos to both of them for being excellent hosts!

Crew

Tyler and Erika love being on, in or under the water. Committed to exceptional guest service, this crew will make sure your vacation in the islands is one you will never forget.

Tyler and Erika meet in college where they worked at a dive shop and ran a dive club together. After college they set off to face the corporate world - Tyler as a production manager for Aramark Uniform Services and Erika as a logistics manager for Target. Hectic travel schedules and long days left them missing each other and the water. After years of
