My family trip with Captain Gary and First Mate Rory was a fantastic day of snorkeling, hanging out on the boat, and visiting Jost Van Dyke Island. We were there on Sunday Nov. 22nd. It was a fairly windy day, so Captain Gary took us to places that didn't have big waves. We greatly appreciated that! No fun snorkeling in... More

Our party sailed with Captain Gary and his First Mate Rory to JVD on Sunday 22 Nov. 2015. The crew was welcoming, provided information on neighbouring islands and supplied us with yummy drinks. We had great time, felt safe onboard and would definitely recommend Capt. Gary as a perfect choice for private/group trips.

This might have been the highlight of our group's trip. Capt. Gary and Abby were both very inviting and made you feel at home. We sailed to Sandy Spit and White Bay on July 28, 2015.

We sailed with Capt Gary, Abby and Grommet over to the Caves at Norman and the Indians yesterday. From the moment we stepped on board we had an excellent experience. We motored upwind to Norman where we snorkeled around the Caves before heading to Willy T's for lunch. Then moved out to the Indians for some even better snorkeling. While... More
