Captain Gord and Chef Ginny are the consummate hosts - generous with their time, effort and thoughtfulness. And Juno's attention to detail and attending to our needs was First Class. A once in a lifetime experience! Kudos to you all for how you run things and giving us this such an incredible time. We felt like royalty!

Thank you for a remarkable trip! The amenities on the boat were fantastic! The entire crew was beyond top notch! The food was definitely a 5 Star experience. Gordon and Ginny made us all feel welcome from the moment we stepped on the boat. I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful Tandy and Juno were. They were always close by, but not ever invasive. The entire crew aimed to please! The four man crew was extremely professional, knowledgeable of the places we traveled to and personable!! If there is one complaint to be made, it would be we didn’t have enough time to enjoy it more. A marvelous crew and boat!

To Captain Gord, Chef Ginny and the spectacular crew:
Much thanks for pampering us and tending to our every need! What a magical and unforgettable experience aboard the luxuriant Decompression. We will never forget the yacht, the crew, the memories and laughs.
So very grateful for the moment we were welcomed on board with a glass of champagne and the removal of our shoes, we knew the "Decompression" was about to begin and the experience would be unique! This was an incredible vacation with a top notch crew; from Captain Gord's insights and stories to Chef Ginny's 5-star restaurant cooking, to the 24/7 quality service offered by Brit and Juno.

Dear Gordon and Ginny,
Thanks for giving my clients such a fabulous time onboard DECOMPRESSION, here is one comment from MaryLou, that reflects the feeling of the whole group:
Good morning! My name is MaryLou and I was on the DECOMPRESSION last week with Jill and Jerry. This is the second yacht trip my husband and I have taken with them. I am writing this note to let you know how wonderful the trip was. The amenities on the boat were fantastic! The entire crew was beyond top notch! The food was definitely a 5 Star experience. Gordon and Ginny made us all feel welcome from the moment we stepped on the boat. I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful Tandy and Juno were. They were always close by, but not ever invasive.

Dear Ginny, Gord, Thandi and Juno
Thank you so much for such an amazing trip! There are so many things I could say about the whole crew. First of all, I don't know how I will survive without Thandi's famous drink concoctions and all of Ginny's delicious meals and desserts. I also loved hearing Captain Gord's stories! Juno was great - took us everywhere, including tubing, and taught us how to wakeboard. With all the fun toys like paddle-boards and kayaks, we couldn't think of a better way to spend Christmas. Loved the "Secret Santa," the Hershey kisses left on our pillows, the visors and water bottles - everything each of you did was so thoughtful and really contributed to this unforgettable vacation. Thank you for making this one of our best vacations ever! Your outstanding hospitality, professionalism, awesome food, advice, attention to details and, most importantly, making sure everyone was safe.

She needs to publish a cook book
Five Staraccommodations are jealous of "The Ginny & Gord Experience". Myhusband and I had the time of our lives sailing with Ginny & Gord! They aregracious, fun and delightful in every way. We quickly became comfortable withthe hospitality and fun atmosphere created by our hosts. Our every wish wasscheduled for us as we enjoyed breakfast each morning. Our days were filledwith diving, snorkeling, land tours, entertainment and even quiet time to relaxunder the stars. Their sailing skills are expert and the food was fabulous.Honestly I cannot understand how 2 people could do so much. The level ofhospitality and service they provided could not be duplicated by a much largercrew.
We had the time of ourlife sailing with Ginny & Gord! They are expert sailors and navigators.They are also extremely sweet and fun people, as well as very patient withdifficult guests. We always had a great time, and we always slept well knowingGord and Ginny had all of the sailing and navigation under control. Ginny is anamazing and creative cook. She prepares delicious meals with fresh and localingredients. The crew are both excellent tour guides, and they took us to allof the best spots in the British Virgin Islands.
