Went with Double D Charters and Gumption to Necker Island. Had a wonderful time playing with the lemurs and giant turtles. Lucky the blind flamingo survived Irma and is doing well. This is a must do if you are coming to Virgin Gorda. We finished with a wonderful lunch at Oil Nut.

Our group of seven traveled to Virgin Gorda for a friends vacation. We have traveled together before and it's always nice to find a charter that we can enjoy and get in some good snorkeling. We had the pleasure of sailing with Angel. He was extremely knowledgable when it comes to sailing and a blast to be around. For those on a schedule, don't go sailing. We enjoyed the sailing, the snorkeling and the awesome places he took us. We had lunch on Cooper Island(along with drinks and desserts). Snorkeling at Cistern Rock was awesome, we actually say a sea turtle swimming below. Altogether, Double D Charters and specifically Angel were a real pleasure to have showing us around. Hopefully one day we are able to go back and charter with them again!

First and foremost, Dave is a superb captain, knows the islands better than anyone, not to mention he is a terrific friend of many years. So, we often take a day trip with him, and we were in for a perfect experience. 3 snorkel sites, all stunning, for example Norman Island Caves were particularly exquisite this day. Lunch, as we love it, on the Willy T. The food gets better and better, not to mention now the tables up on the top! All in all, I totally recommend a day with Dave on the Double D, as a perfect day!

Dave, of Double D Charters, provided a fun excursion for us by exceeding our expectations. He took us to fabulous snorkeling sites and fun island spots. It was my first time to Cooper Island. Thanks!

We had a full, full day on the Double D, with Dave Irwin. Definitely a trip highlight. We literally were with him from 9 am to 7 pm. We hit four snorkel spots, had lunch on the Willy T and then stopped at Cooper for happy hour and dinner. Note: This was an exception and not his normal tour, but Dave was super accommodating due to our anniversary request. By the end of the day, we decided we will never charter with anyone else on VG. He is just a great man, competent captain, wonderful storyteller and funny, funny, guy. Note, your interaction can be as big or little as you want, but if you don't chat him up, you are doing yourself a disservice.

There have been some criticism about his boat, so if you are looking for a boat show boat, go elsewhere. But if you are wanting a true experience, no time limit, no fuss, laid back , fun day...Dave Irwin is THE MAN. And the ladder, is awesome. I am a middle aged woman and the ladder was very easy to get up and down. Dave - thank you again, from your four friends from Virginia. Love the shirt!!
