Want to thank you, and highly commend the crew, for an absolutely fantastic charter the past week. The trip was above and beyond our wildest expectations and left all five of us with memories beyond compare.
The organization of every detail was flawless and a testament to your organization and the crew of the Aldebaran.
We will definitely be back in 2014 for William to learn SCUBA and would like to be kept appraised of the progress of Oli and Naomi wherever they are.

Nay and Oli,
We could not have asked for a more fabulous spring break! we did it all: snorkeling tubing, wake boarding sailing, beaches, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, the baths, bubbly pool, and even surfing!
Oli was a perfect captain, we always felt safe on-board and he planned an itinerary that took us to some great new spots as well as some old favorites.
Nay cooked wonderful meals that we all enjoyed with alot of variety: seafood, gourmet burgers, pork, steak, and even duck!
They both spoiled our family for the entire week. What a fun crew!
The Aldebaran had everything a family could want for a perfect vacation! we cant wait for our next sailing trip to the BVI!
Thanks for EVERYTHING,
Anne, Brian William and Banks T.
Dearest Nay and Oli,
Our warmest thanks for the most wonderful week. it has been an incredible adventure for us all. The kids have asked to stay behind with you and we figured that would be fine?!
Thankyou most of all for your incredible kindness towards the kids, they will remember this week forever. We consider you family now and hope you will visit us soon in NYC
The feldman Family.
Dear Nay and Oli,
I had the best time ever! I learned how to snorkel, Ihelped Oli drive the dingy and i learned how to do a jumping forward roll!
Please keep in touch.
Love Elle. p.s i dont want to go home p.p.s maybe you can come to new York!
Nay and Oli,
Where do we begin after such an incredible (no, 'wicked!!') week on board Aldebaran. You two made our BVI adventure spectacular. The sailing was perfect, the food out of this world, the recommendations for out-of-the-way stops were spot on and your service absolutely incredible. We sail a lot and have been to the islands many times but this is by far the best trip yet.
So relaxing and fun.
But what really made the week special was the immediate and great friendship between you two and our entire family, you are now part of the Team family like it or not, and we are part of yours.
All the luck on future voyages, and especially your upcoming wedding. Stay in touch and we will as well. You must come to North Carolina some time so we can wait on you!
Love to you both and wish you the best.
Robin and Katherine Team
NEW YEARS 2012-2013
To sum up our thoughts in one word we would simply say AMAZING. The trip exceeded our expectations and we had the best time. We were able to relax peacefully, yet explore and eat some amazing foods! Nay was a fabulous cook and there wasn't a single meal we didn't love. Breakfast was perfect, we would have simple breakfasts some mornings with bagels or croissants, or more elaborate breakfasts such as bacon or salmon and eggs. Can't forget the wonderful fresh fruit bowls she served us almost daily! Lunches were yet another amazing feast. We had pasta for lunch quite a few times, but were fabulous every time. I think the pasta with shrimp was our favorite. Although the mussels were amazing too! We would often have an afternoon "nibble" made up of cheese trays, hummus, or other little snacks. Dinners were better than we imagined as well. We had filets, tuna, mahi mahi, and much more. Just as we thought we couldn't eat more, Nay would bring out one of her scrumptious desserts. She cooked some amazing desserts such as a lemon tart and carrot cake for Macie's birthday. I should also mention the cocktails Oli would mix up for us, he was always trying something a little different and new and never failed us!
Although it seems like all we did was eat, we also had a wonderful time exploring the BVIs. We visited Jost Van Dyke, Anegada, Virgin Gorda, Tortola, Cooper Island, Salt Island, Peter Island, Indians, and Norman Island. On Jost Van Dyke we all enjoyed the Bubbly Pools. The Baths in Virgin Gorda were breathtaking. Along our travels we saw dolphins and sea turtles. On New Year's Eve we all ventured in to Tortola and took on some island night life. There were performers on stilts and fire burning sculptures in the waters. We all enjoyed snorkeling and saw some amazing sea life. We were able to snorkel on an old ship wreck and around some beautiful reefs. We also tubed behind the dingy and kayaked to shore a couple of times!
Much like everything else the boat itself also exceeded our expectations. We all enjoyed the front part of the boat and laying out on what we called the "trampoline". Oli would hang the hammock or a tent for us to get some shade, which was a nice break from the sun. The rooms were plenty enough for us, as you don't spend much time in them anyways. Eating out on the deck area was a pleasure and the views were always amazing.
And last but certainly not least, Oli and Nay. They were GREAT! We had so much fun with them. They did a wonderful job making us feel at home and taking care of whatever we could possibly need. Oli was a wonderful captain and we had a fabulous time sailing with him! They did a great job showing us around the BVIs and helping us make memories we will have for a lifetime!
Thanks for all your help with the planning, couldn't have asked for a better vacation. We would certainly love to do a trip like this again someday and would recommend it to anyone!
I will attach a few photos of the meals Nay fixed and a few others of our favorties!
Thanks again, Mallory B
