We loved the trip. Mischa and Lenny were a great crew, the perfect pair. Loved the Ohana, fantastic boat for 6 people. Food was fabulous. Overall satisfaction was a 10 on a scale of 1-10, we don't have any suggestions on how it could have been better.
Hope to travel with them again. The diving worked out very well, rendezvous diving was fine. Given the amount of diving we wanted to do, 3 days, we did not need tanks etc on board. Certification process for two of our group was just fine. Blue Water Dives (first 2 days) were better than Jost Van Dyke Dives. But that's really just about dive sites.
We'd definitely do this again. Just like to do different things so next time we'd probably do the Bahamas. Peter
Ohana, Hawaiian for “Family and leaving no one behind”,
Also means great meals, comfy cabins, frothy coffees, RumRunners and plenty of wine!
A special thanks to the Lenny and Mischa team,
From Fish tacos to lobster risotto; each meal a dream!
As we explored the islands up and down Tortola’s coast,
The two of them could not have been better hosts
Leading snorkel adventures to a secret Red Dog cave,
Or rolling into the “Soggy Dollar” on a large wave.
Running on Norman, Buying t-shirts on Cooper,
Watching tarpon and pelicans, or spotting a Nassau Grouper.
Swimming, diving, and paddle boarding on calm seas,
The week has been great – Full of great Memories!

Our week aboard the Ohana was filled to the brim with incredible views, delicious meals, kind and genuine hosts, and a lot of laughter. Mischa and Lenny quickly took the Ohana from a boat to a home. Some of our best memories of the trip are sitting all together around the table, enjoying fresh fish tacos and taking in the views. Lenny & Mischa know how to make the most of every day…where to explore, hike, swim and relax. If you want to explore and indulge in the BVIs, there is NO better way to do it!
Best, Tim & Remi

We searched for the right words to describe our trip, and we collectively agreed on Special. Great, amazing, exceptional just all seem so generic. While our trip met all of those benchmarks, Special just fits. We had Special experiences, we had Special interactions and most important, we felt Special.
Being in the boat business, I was skeptical of a Power Cat, but it turned out to exceed our expectations in quality, space and functionality. The on deck master, flybridge, and aft deck rival those in much larger motor yachts. Whilethe salon offered plenty of interior volume, we did not sit inside, even once. The outdoor space on Ohana was so functional and welcoming, we enjoy edit morning, afternoon and evening. Whether you wanted to be in the sun orin the shade there was always a place to sit, lounge, read or even do a little work on a computer. Access to the water was so quick and easy that we were in and out of the water all day long. (And of course the crew was quick to always have the hot/cold fresh water deck shower and a fresh, dry towel ready for you.)
Typical of the season, the winds were howling, but Ohana provided a stable platform for cruising and anchoring. While we watched other smaller cats and monohulls rolling around, Ohana ate up the chop and the swells, and made quick work of traveling between ports. (And very important, we slept like babies at night.)
While the boat is important, without the thought and skill of the crew, the vacation could have just merely been great. Mischa and Lenny made it Special. They were present when we needed them, yet we found ourselves all the privacy we desired. Besides just being lovely people, they were amazingly intuitive, and were always a step a head of us.
We tubed, paddleboarded, cruised in the dinghy, snorkeled, visited bars and restaurants, beaches, and more, and more and more.
Lenny’s meals were fresh, varied, cooked perfectly and delicious. That is more impressive when you know that I love meat and fish, my wife is a vegetarian and my son is a very, very picky eater. We had adult beverages whenever we needed them, well, more than we needed, and treats for my son included a Special and unannounced birthday cake. (We dined ashore two evenings, and although both recommendations were exceptional, we wished were were sitting back on Ohana’s aft deck.)
Just one specific example of how they made our trip Special occurred on our last night on the boat. My wife had commented that she loved looking at stars. On a clear, moonlit night in Caneel Bay, we returned from dinner to find lounge chairs set up on the bridge to enjoy the amazing sky that evening. Not only did we have wine, and music, but after we fell asleep under the stars, then woke up to warmed blankets being placed on us.
That is just one specific, and I could go on with more examples, but just trust Mischa and Lenny will get to know you, figure out what you want, how you want it and they will be prepared to deliver it.
We look forward to our next trip.

Our group of 4 spent a great week on The Ohana during the holidays last year. We had a great time with Mischa and Lenny at the "helm" !! The food was outstanding (including a few holiday themed dinners) and Mischa did an outstanding job navigating our adventures and planning our daily activities. We all had been to BVI's before but this was by far the best yet. From the fresh coffee (with Baileys of course) in the mornings to fresh "made to order" cocktails at night, this trip was awesome ! We highly recommend a trip to the islands aboard the Ohana as she is a gorgeous vessel. Great job guys and hope to see you again soon.
